Watch: Matt Harvey gives Mets lead with his first career home run

Saturday July 11th, 2015

Matt Harvey hit his first career home run on Saturday against the Diamondbacks to give the Mets a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The two-run shot came off Arizona starter Patrick Corbin and was the second home run of the inning for New York, which went on to win the game 4-2.

The pitcher's inaugural homer came during his 110th at-bat in the major leagues, and was almost undone by a challenge by Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta, who claimed a fan interfered and pulled the ball over the fence. The review center disagreed and found the ball had already cleared the wall when the fan grabbed it.
