Until hitters begin to figure him out, Matt Harvey can expect to continue to be showered with superlatives. His latest recognition might be the most sincere form of flattery yet.
The Mets phenom was named National League Pitcher of the Month after he fashioned a 4-0 record and 1.56 ERA in six April outings. Harvey tallied 46 strikeouts in 40 1/3 innings while holding opposing hitters to a .153 batting average, the lowest mark in the NL among starting pitchers.
Coach Mike Woodson: “It was the second-to-last game. We were playing the Bobcats and we’re resting a lot of our key guys. Sometime in the first quarter, I looked down the bench at Sheed and said ‘Hey, can you go?’ He said ‘Yeah’ and I put him in. Three minutes later he said his foot hurt so I took him out. Then he retired.”
Bryn Renner has been a very consistent quarterback for the Tar Heels. In his two years as a starter, Bryn has led the Heels to a respectable 15-10 record and two winning seasons. It’s very likely that Renner will go on to break tons of career passing records this season, both in yards and in touchdowns, for the university if he posts stats anywhere close to what he did a season ago.
