Matt Harvey didn’t leave Cincinnati before the trade deadline so he will make yet another start for the Reds on Saturday evening.
He last threw a week ago against Philadelphia. He went five innings and only gave up a pair of hits and runs, pumping the fastball up to nearly 98 miles per hour.
Harvey has his WHIP under 1.20 now and his walk rate is down almost to where it was at the peak of his career several years ago; he hasn’t quite crossed the threshold of under two walks per nine but he’s close at 2.1.
He’s also giving up less than a hit per inning, though he was down around six per nine back in his all-star season of 2013.
Game one of this series wasn’t competitive on Thursday, as Washington won its third game in a row in a 10–4 win. Max Scherzer pitched well and extended his hitting streak to five games with an RBI single. He also came around to score on a hit by Trea Turner.
Bryce Harper had another pair of hits, going 2-for-3 with a long home run when the game was close to decided in the ninth inning.
Juan Soto walked three times after being named NL Rookie of the Month for the second consecutive month.
Jeremy Hellickson won one of those in 2011 when he was named Rookie of the Year. He lost his last outing, giving up eight hits and five runs (three earned) before getting the hook with two out in the fifth inning against Miami.
