The frustrations of a difficult night, a difficult season, weighed heavily on Harvey as he walked off the mound at Coors Field, head down. As he walked to the dugout, it was clear Harvey was completely dejected over his performance, his first outing at this funhouse of a ballpark, head down. This is not going to be easy.

DENVER — Matt Harvey joined the Mile-Low club Friday night.

Harvey’s first career start at Coors Field ended with him being yanked in the sixth inning, and the Mets lost their second straight, 5-2 to the Rockies. “I’m just not feeling comfortable throwing a baseball right now, so it’s frustrating,” Harvey said. “It’s something I have obviously done my whole life is gone on a mound and thrown a baseball, and right now it’s not an easy task.” The Mets’ lineup didn’t provide much assistance, going virtually silent for a second straight game.
