2013 NL manager Bruce Bochy names Matt Harvey as the National League's starter. The 24 year-old rookie right-hander, who becomes the first Mets pitcher to start an All-Star Game since Dwight Gooden got the nod in 1988, will be the sixth hurler to start the Mid-Summer Classic in his home ballpark when he faces the American League lineup tomorrow at Citi Field.
2015 Kirk Nieuwenhuis, recently reacquired by the Mets from the Angels after they sold him to the Halos in May, hits three home runs his first three at-bats, helping the team complete a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks with a 5-3 victory at Citi Field. The outfielder’s first three homers of the season mark the tenth time in franchise history a player has a gone deep three times in a game, but the 27 year-old is the first to accomplish the feat at home.
