Mets’ Harvey set for Game 1

The Washington Post Sunday - - WASHINGTONPOST.COM/SPORTS -

Matt Harvey was cho­sen to pitch for the New York Mets in the World Se­ries opener at Kansas City on Tues­day night.

Mets Man­ager Terry Collins an­nounced his ro­ta­tion Satur­day, when the team worked out at Citi Field. Ja­cob de Grom will start Game 2 at Kauff­man Sta­dium, fol­lowed by rook­ies Noah Syn­der­gaard and Steven Matz when the best-of­seven se­ries shifts to New York.

Collins says the Mets wanted to give de Grom an ex­tra day of rest and they like go­ing into Kansas City with their top two starters. They also feel good about Syn­der­gaard pitch­ing at home, where he has been most suc­cess­ful.

Collins said Harvey could be avail­able out of the bullpen in a po­ten­tial Game 7.
