It’s World Series time. Finally.
Matt Harvey will get the start for the Mets after earning wins in both of his previous two postseason starts. The right-hander notched 16 strikeouts while allowing just four runs in the playoffs and, despite his earlier innings-limit controversy, Harvey has shown no signs of slowing down.
Harvey will go up against a Kanas City lineup that has been hot this postseason. In fact, no team in baseball makes contact more often than the Royals. The team led all of baseball in contact rate during the regular season and rarely strikes out.
Game on? Game on.
