THE DARK KNIGHT of Gotham arrived to South Philly for the first time in nearly two years. But the leading man in the New York Mets' starting rotation doesn't work alone. It's "Matt Harvey Night" when he pitches at Citi Field. Last night, he brought a legion of followers with him down I-95. The blue that intermingled with red at Citizens Bank Park wasn't the empty seats that have become a common fixture to Phillies baseball in 2015. They were Mets fans, attempting the take over the 12-year-old ballpark like the bad ol' days at Veterans Stadium.

THE SEASON is off to an unexpected start for the New York Mets. They're the ones getting big hits while their opponents make the crucial mistakes. Daniel Murphy singled home the winning run in the ninth inning and the undefeated Mets took advantage of a throwing error by reliever Henry Rodriguez to beat the visiting Washington Nationals, 4-3, on Monday night. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit his first major league homer for the Mets, who are 4-0 for the first time since 2007. After a surprising sweep of Atlanta, New York rallied from a three-run deficit before a crowd of 23,970.

Ken Giles' fastball has yet to reach triple digits this season. The Phillies reliever has not lived up to his "100 Miles Giles" nickname. But, "95 Miles Giles" has proven effective despite his fastball's decreased velocity. "100 miles per hour is just a luxury thing," Giles said. "I'm still 95-96. Who cares? I'm going to be more effective if I learn how to pitch. That's how I get out. Not blowing guys away. It's learning how to pitch. " Giles' fastball has averaged this season at 94.7 m.p.h., according to Pitchf/x data.

Kyle Kendrick remains optimistic that he will be back good as new next season. But where he will be is an interesting question. The Phillies announced Friday that Kendrick would be shut down for the season. An MRI examination revealed Kendrick had rotator cuff tendinitis and some slight fraying. He sought a second opinion Thursday from New York Mets team physician David Alchek, who according to Kendrick agreed with the original diagnosis. Of note, Alchek recommended Kendrick be shut down because he didn't want him to do any damage to his elbow.

A PERSON familiar with the deal told the Associated Press that free-agent outfielder Jason Bay reached a 1-year contract with the Seattle Mariners. Bay, 34, is hoping to resurrect his career with the Mariners after three disappointing and injury-plagued seasons with the New York Mets. Last month, Bay and the Mets agreed to terminate his contract with 1 guaranteed year remaining on his $66 million, 4-year contract. The agreement let the Mets spread out the $21 million they still owed him. Bay hit .165 with eight home runs and 20 RBI last season.

Call it a dark night for the Dark Knight of Gotham. For the second time this season, New York Mets righthander Matt Harvey was less than imposing when facing the Phillies. This time, it resulted in his first loss of the season as Cole Hamels allowed one run in seven innings during the Phillies' 3-1 win over the Mets on Friday at Citizens Bank Park. Harvey allowed three earned runs on six hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out four, and allowed a Ryan Howard solo home run. Harvey's line was almost identical to the one he had in a 6-5 win over the visiting Phillies on April 14. In that game, he allowed three earned runs on five hits in six innings, with eight strikeouts and no walks.

Cole Hamels walked off the mound, raised his glove to his mouth and barked into the mitt. The pitcher headed to the dugout irritated after allowing a run in the fourth inning of Friday's 3-1 win over the New York Mets. It was the lone blemish on an otherwise striking night at Citizens Bank Park. Hamels struck out eight batters - the highest at home since last July - and allowed four hits. He retired 10 of his final 11 batters and threw more than 100 pitches for the sixth time in seven starts.

NEW YORK - Daniel Murphy let loose a loud, Ric Flair-like "wooo" as his five-man batting group finished its turn in the cage prior to Tuesday's game against the Orioles. Murphy, a veteran infielder, was the only player in the group to homer in the final rotation of swings. A small victory. The New York Mets, fresh off a 3-7 stretch after starting the year 13-3, were feeling loose before opening a two-game interleague clash with reigning AL East champion Baltimore. They were answering questions about what was going wrong during that stretch.

NEW YORK - A day after they were shut out for the second time in seven games, it doesn't figure to get any easier for the Phillies offense. They'll face Matt Harvey on Tuesday night. Harvey, the New York Mets' star righthander, will make his first start at Citi Field since undergoing Tommy John surgery that cost him all of last season. The 26-year-old pitched six shutout innings and struck out nine in his season debut Thursday against the Nationals. "I'm excited," Harvey said Monday before the series opener against the Phillies, a 2-0 Mets win. "Being home, it's a big series for us against the Phillies and then quite a big homestand.

From left to right you'll find the lockers of Matt Harvey, Jonathon Niese, Jacob deGrom and Zack Wheeler.

IF YOU'RE WALKING along the Las Vegas strip tomorrow night and the lights dim, don't panic. It's just a thoughtful tribute honoring the late Jerry Tarkanian, the former head coach of UNLV who died last Wednesday at age 84. According to the Associated Press, the tribute will take place at 10:30 following the Boise State at UNLV game. The gesture puts Tarkanian in good company. Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Elvis Presley and Ronald Reagan are among those who have had lights dimmed on the Strip after their deaths.
