A Pitcher's Duel At Citi Field
Matt Harvey (8 IP, 1 R, 0 BB, 10 SO) and Hiroki Kuroda (7 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 SO) had a classic pitcher's duel in New York on Tuesday. It was only the second game in the major leagues in the modern era (1900 to date) in which each starter went at least seven innings, allowed no more than one run, didn't walk a batter and averaged at least one strikeout per inning. The other such duel was on Aug. 15, 1976 at Shea Stadium when Jerry Koosman shut out the Big Red Machine while recording 11 strikeouts. His opposing number in that game was Gary Nolan, who allowed one run while fanning seven batters in seven innings.about 19 days ago | Elias Sports Bureau
MLB - How Harvey and Kuroda dominated
How Mets starter Matt Harvey dominated the Yankees:about 20 days ago | ESPN Stats and Information
- Harvey set season highs by recording eight outs and four strikeouts with his slider.
- He registered four strikeouts with his fastball, all coming the pitch immediately after a slider. Entering Tuesday he had just six strikeouts all season that finished slider-fastball.
- Harvey's fastball averaged 95.7 MPH, matching his second-highest average velocity of the season. His fastball has averaged at least 95.0 MPH in each of his last six starts; he had just one start at that velocity among his first five starts of the year.
How Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda dominated the Mets:
- Kuroda threw first-pitch strikes to 19 of 25 hitters, a season-high 76 percent.
- Five of Kuroda's seven strikeouts were with his splitter, his most strikeouts with the pitch in a game this season.
- The Mets swung at 11 of Kuroda's 17 splitters out of the zone (65 percent), the highest percentage by any team against Kuroda this season. Four of Kuroda's five splitter strikeouts came on pitches out of the zone.
Fantasy Facts - Hiroki Kuroda should succeed with his Split-Fingered Fastball
Of all pitchers in the majors with at least 8 starts, Hiroki Kuroda has used the split-finger fastball the third-highest percentage of the time (18%). He will face the New York Mets, who have the league's worst average in at-bats that end on a split-finger fastball (.034).about 21 days ago | ESPN Stats and Information
