Here are this morning’s Mets links:
- The Mets lost yesterday afternoon in a marathon 12-inning game with the Dodgers that ended in an 8-3 defeat. Jonathon Niese pitched well, but the offense couldn’t score until the ninth, when they tied up the game. In the end, however, it all went to waste as Ramon Ramirez allowed five runs in the 12th to lost. (Post, Box Score)
- The Mets announced that they will call up Matt Harvey to make his major league debut on Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Harvey is 7-5 with a 3.68 ERA in 20 starts for the Triple-A Bisons this season. (ESPN New York)
