In case you forgot, during a game in May, after D.J. Carrasco was ejected for hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch, Terry Collins pulled Wright because he did not want Wright targeted for retaliation. Wright appeared frustrated with Collins in the dugout. This is the first time the two teams have met since that game.

Harvey really has been terrific. But, what I like most, is how serious is he is about being better. He pitched really well last night, but he talked after the game like he got rocked. Why? Because, in his mind, despite letting up just one run and striking out 10, it wasn’t good enough since he tossed 100 pitches in five innings. He is vocal and focused on how and why he must be better… and yet he has a 2.92 ERA in nine starts and 52 innings, during which he’s struck out 62 batters. I love it, and gives me even more hope than I already that he will be a major part of the rotation over the next decade.
