The Mets topped the Diamondbacks at Chase Field Thursday night. Scott Hairston got the Amazins' off to a good start with a two-run double in the top of the first off starter Wade Miley. And that was all the offense Matt Harvey needed in his major league debut. The 2010 first-round pick struck out eleven batters over five-and-one-third scoreless innings in New York's 3-1 victory. Harvey also registered two hits at the dish to become the first pitcher since 1900 to have ten-plus strikeouts and two-plus hits at the plate in his major-league debut.
