Tim Tebow Does Port St. Lucie

The sitcom that’s been sweeping the nation, coming from the sunshine of Florida has been “Tim Tebow does Port St. Lucie” and more than the actual buzz is the idea of the shows legitimate success.

After collecting his first hit on Monday, the New York Mets 29-year-old prospect added two more on Wednesday in his team’s 6-2 loss to the Miami Marlins.

He’s now collected three in total including all coming over his last five at-bats. He, of course, also finished off a phenomenal running catch in left field on Monday that the folks are still raving about:

If he keeps this up, the title that he’s “doing” Port St. Lucie will surely change.

Matt Harvey isn’t doing Port St. Lucie

Once again, Mets righty Matt Harvey marched out to the rubber and struggled. He surrendered five hits, four runs, two earned runs while striking out three over 3.1 innings pitched.

Worse was the fact he was the man responsible for the two unearned runs, committing two errors at the position. He’s now 0-3 with an ERA of 7.88 through three games this spring.

News and Notes

The only other Met player to collect two hits on the day was Luis Guillorme who, like Tebow, went 2-for-3 including one of the two Mets RBIs.

Both Jay Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes finished 0-for-3 from the plate. Travis d’Arnaud came up hitless in two tries.

Rafael Montero was the man who really blew up the game after Harvey. His four walks and two runs allowed in 1.2 innings turned out as an ugly stat line.

Next up for the Mets will be a road affair against the NL rival Washington Nationals.
