Turner's walk helps Nationals edge Mets in 11

Mets right-hander Matt Harvey, whose start was moved up a day when scheduled starter Jacob deGrom was scratched due to a stiff neck, allowed three runs, four hits and two walks while striking out two in seven innings.

To indicate how hot he is: He entered the night 1-for-26 with 7 strikeouts against Harvey in his career.

Tanner Roark pitched 6 ²/₃ innings for the Nationals and allowed three earned runs on seven hits with three walks.

Lucas Duda (elbow) and Wilmer Flores (infection) were placed on the disabled list Friday, while Travis d'Arnaud (wrist), Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) and Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) also were ailing. It took only one pitch in the first inning, as Conforto swatted a leadoff homer.

Familia then walked pinch-hitter Trea Turner to force in a run. If he's unable to pitch, LHP Sean Gilmartin will start.

Harvey will start Friday against the Nationals, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Nationals Manager Dusty Baker then turned the game over to recently named closer Shawn Kelley.

Both teams had historic years last year. His on-base-plus-slugging percentage was.172. He didn't have fewer than two hits against any other pitcher he's faced at 15 times as a major leaguer. "I definitely wish I was out there tonight".

Rizzo's HR rallies Cubs to 6-5 win over Reds in 11 innings CINCINNATI - Anthony Rizzo tied it with a two-out, three-run homer in the ninth, and Kris Bryant hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning on Friday night, rallying the Chicago Cubs to a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. "I'm hoping that the law of averages comes out to work on Bryce's behalf tonight". Harvey had drilled the previous batter, Wilmer Difo, with a fastball to the helmet. He swiftly popped up and stayed in the game after trainer Paul Lessard paid a quick visit to trot around the bases.

Heading into this series, Bryce Harper brought 22 hits, 17 runs and 18 RBI.

Austin Jackson doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the third, and Brandon Guyer hit a two-run homer in the fourth - his first of the year (see full recap). Without Steven Matz, New York's rotation has the second lowest ERA in the NL (3.14). Conforto also singled in the fifth and walked in the seventh. Five pitches later, Curtis Granderson lined a single to plate Bruce from second base. It was his first home run of the season. The Nationals went first, courtesy of Jose Lobaton, who lofted a Harvey offering over the wall in right-center field. He's got the flowing locks and will be looking to mow down the Nationals this evening. deGrom is 0-0 on the season in three starts but has a 1.89 ERA covering 19 innings. An inning later, Granderson responded with a 2-0, two-out blast to the second deck beyond the right field wall for his first home run in 2017.
