Chase Utley Hits Two Long Balls But Get Drilled In The Back By 95 MPH Pitch.
Retaliation by Matt Harvey, starting pitcher for the Mets to make up for Phillies pitcher David Buchanan in the 2nd inning nailing two Mets. ( I believe it was by accident) Wilmer Flores and Cuddyer was hit on the left hand. Cuddyer left the game but the X- rays were negative. Plate umpire Alfonso Marquez warned both benches.
Chase replied after the game,
I guess you’re going to have to ask him that question.” Harvey said the pitch got away. “That sounds about right. It kind of grazed me somewhere in my back. Getting hit by a pitch is part of the game. It’s not the first time I’ve been hit by a pitch and it won’t be the last.”
Chase came out of his slump with 2 HRS and an RBI single but the Phillies lost the game 6-5.
