The Philadelphia Phillies fell for the second consecutive night to the New York Mets, losing 3-2 at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday evening.
In a matchup of young pitchers, Matt Harvey got the best of Tyler Cloyd.
Cloyd pitched well in his major-league debut, giving up only three runs in six innings on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. The 25-year-old was also impressive with a bat in his hands, drawing a pair of walks.
Offensively, the Phillies just couldn't get much going. Juan Pierre was the only man in red with a multi-hit night, collecting two singles. Philly only scored in the first and second innings, with RBIs from Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins, respectively.
Harvey kept the bats quiet with an array of pitches. The Connecticut native went 6.1 innings and allowed just two runs on six hits and a pair of walks.
Lucas Duda provided the only home run of the game with a two-run blast in the third.
