Steven Matz made his Major League debut yesterday, and had four RBI.
- He’s a pitcher.
– However he isn’t just the first Mets pitcher to have four RBI in his MLB debut; he’s the first Mets player to do that.
Via @goldbergkc, Jeremy Guthrie has stuck out the side just five times in his career – but two of them came yesterday.
On Saturday, Starling Marte stole home.
On Friday, Ben Revere homered off of Max Scherzer:
- At this point, the unpredictable thing seems not to be that Scherzer took a no-hitter into the sixth, but that he allowed two earned runs.
Brandon Belt hit two triples on Thursday.
- He hit just one triple in all of 2014.
And last Monday, Joe Blanton outdueled Felix Hernandez, in a game that also saw Robinson Cano hit just his third home run of the season.
