Recap: NY Mets vs. Colorado

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Matt Harvey continued his impressive season on Wednesday by tossing his first career complete game.

Harvey gave up just four hits and struck out six in the New York Mets' 5-0 win over the Colorado Rockies in the middle test of a three-game series.

For the 24-year-old Harvey (9-3), it's the second time he's pitched nine innings this season. The other occurrence was on May 7 against the White Sox, but that game went into extra innings. The Mets' ace has allowed three runs or less in all but three of his starts this season.

"Nine innings, it's where you want to go as a starter," said Harvey. "Whether I struck out 10 or three or one, nine innings with a bunch of zeroes is all that matters."

Wilmer Flores, in his second career game, went 2-for-4 with a three-run double while John Buck and Omar Quintanilla drove in a run apiece for the Mets.

Colorado starter Jhoulys Chacin (10-6) gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk over seven innings.

The Rockies are on a four-game losing streak.

"We obviously didn't have the road trip that we'd like to have," said Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer. "Hopefully we can at least get tomorrow's game and go back home. It's important."

In the second, Flores, Buck and Quintanilla hit consecutive one-out singles, the last of which drove in a run. The Mets had a chance to score more, but Harvey grounded into a double play.

Two innings later, Buck delivered a two-out RBI single to right.

After that, it was Harvey's show. Following a two-out single to Michael Cuddyer in the fourth, Harvey retired the next 11 batters before giving up a one-out infield single to Nolan Arenado in the eighth. DJ LeMahieu grounded into a double play on the next at-bat.

In the bottom of the eighth, Juan Lagares was walked with one out. Two batters later, Marlon Byrd hit a two-out ground-rule double and Ike Davis was intentionally walked, loading the bases. Flores cleared them with a double down the left field line.

In the ninth, Charlie Blackmon hit Harvey in the knee with a two-out line drive and advanced to second on a fielder's indifference. Harvey finished the job by getting Troy Tulowtizki to pop out.
