RHP Matt Harvey had what amounted to his worst start as a big leaguer Wednesday, when he allowed a career-high nine hits and four runs over 6 1/3 innings in the Mets' 7-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Harvey preserved his unbeaten record, though, when the Mets came back to tie the game in the seventh. Harvey walked three and struck out six while throwing 116 pitches, his second-most of the season. He had allowed three runs or less in 16 straight starts, the longest active streak in the bigs and the fourth-longest streak in Mets history.
