On Harvey Day the New York Mets offense decided to put up their best effort of the 2015 MLB season in defeating the Dodgers 15-2.

Prior to the game if somebody were to ask Matt Harvey if two runs of run-support would’ve been a welcomed sight for sore eyes, he would’ve smirked and said of course.

If somebody would’ve told him he’d get 15 runs, he’d slap you silly.

15 runs on 21 hits is exactly what the New York Mets offense gave Harvey on Saturday night. Harvey picked up his ninth win of the 2015 MLB season in the Mets 15-2 drubbing of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Harvey pitched phenomenally. However, his two earned runs and six hits over seven innings was hardly the story. Instead, it was all about this lineup who seems rejuvenated thanks to rookie Michael Conforto and the additions of Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe.

Conforto not only picked up his first big league hit on a harmless chopper past the pitcher in the first inning, he went 4-4 with a walk.

Johnson made his presence felt in his first game as a Met, homering off Zach Lee in the fifth inning.

Even the struggling Lucas Duda found a way to slip into the party. He homered twice (both solo shots).

This was the Mets highest scoring game since 2013.
