Nice win last night — by a half-run, once again — and not only does that extend the streak to four, it also lifts me to a season-high 31 games above the .500 mark. Let’s just keep the line moving on this Wednesday.
It will be quite a unique scenario for Harvey, who gets set to face the team that was close to acquiring him via trade less than a week ago.
In an effort to beef up their starting pitching, Milwaukee claimed the Cincinnati right-hander on waivers, but couldn’t work out a deal with the division-rival Reds, who decided to hold on to the former All-Star and keep him as part of their rebuilding effort.
