Angels' Matt Harvey: Fans six in win
Harvey (2-3) earned the win Friday against the Royals after allowing two runs on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts over five innings.
Harvey carried a 9.64 ERA into Friday's matchup against the Royals but proved he had better stuff than the numbers suggested. The 30-year-old cruised early on, retiring eight of his first nine batters before running into temporary trouble in the third with a pair of two-out singles. He managed to work his way out of impending jams to earn his second win of the season -- both against the Royals. Although the right-hander has fanned just 34 batters over 45.1 innings this year, his strikeout rate is on the rise with 18 K's over his last 20.2 innings. He'll carry a 6.25 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into his next showdown against the Twins.
