In the first matchup between two talented NL East pitchers who could be squaring off for years to come, Mets ace Matt Harvey (11-7) faces prized rookie Aaron Nola (5-1) and the Phillies. Both right-handers were drafted No. 7 overall - Harvey out of North Carolina in 2010 and Nola from LSU last year. ''I've been watching Matt Harvey for a few years now.
Whatever the New York Mets' plan is for monitoring Matt Harvey's workload, he's responding with his best pitching of the season. The Philadelphia Phillies have allowed Aaron Nola to go deeper into his last two starts, and the results have been every bit as impressive. The two No. 7 overall draft choices meet for the first time Wednesday night in New York with the Mets needing a win to avoid a series loss to the worst team in baseball.
NEW YORK (AP) -- - Fed up with losing to the New York Mets, Darin Ruf and the Phillies finally did something about it. Ruf homered and had a career-high six RBIs, powering Philadelphia to a 14-8 blowout Tuesday night that emphatically ended its 10-game skid against the NL East leaders. ''I just kind of shook everybody's hand and told them, 'Congratulations,''' Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur said.

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. It may be too late, but the Cleveland Indians are surging heading into September. The club picked up its sixth straight win Monday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2. Starter Danny Salazar was magnificent against the best offense in baseball. Salazar allowed just two runs on six hits over seven strong innings. He walked one and struck out 10 Blue Jays during the performance. Though Salazar was great, the team ran into some trouble after he exited the game. Toronto was able to make things interesting in both the eighth and ninth innings. Bryan Shaw picked up two quick outs to start the eighth, but followed that up by allowing a hit to Jose Bautista. He was removed from the game at that point in favor of closer Cody Allen. [ Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness. ] Allen looked shaky to kick things off. After a single from Edwin Encarnacion put men on second and third, Allen intentionally walked Troy Tulowitzki after falling behind in the count 2-0. He was able to strike out Justin Smoak to end the frame. Things weren't any easier in the ninth, though. Allen allowed two singles in the inning, bringing the winning run to the plate twice. Ben Revere popped out, setting the stage for American League MVP candidate Josh Donaldson to play the hero. For once, Donaldson couldn't get the job done. Allen struck him out, preserving the victory. With the win, Cleveland improved to 64-66 on the year. The team is just four games out of the second wild card spot in the AL. DALLAS KEUCHEL LEADS ASTROS TO ANOTHER WIN In what should come as no surprise, the Houston Astros won a game with Dallas Keuchel on the mound Monday. Keuchel was excellent, helping his team pull off the 8-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners. The AL Cy Young award candidate tossed seven strong innings, allowing one run on six hits. He struck out eight and walked one during the contest. With the win, Keuchel became the first 16-game winner in the American League. He did some show that he was human during the start, though, giving up his first home run in Minute Maid Park this season. Trumbo's HR was first off Keuchel at Minute Maid Park this year in 367 at-bats. He'd started 17 straight here since last HR in 2014. — Greg Johns (@GregJohnsMLB) September 1, 2015 Coming into the game, Keuchel had a 1.35 ERA at home this year. He's still in good shape, despite the home run. With the win, Houston improved to 73-59 on the season. They are four games up on the Texas Rangers in the AL West. METS CONTINUE WINNING WAYS The New York Mets gained a game in the standings Monday. The club did so by riding Bartolo Colon to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Colon had everything working during the contest. He kept the Phillies off the board for eight innings, giving up just four hits. Colon struck out nine and walked one. He was backed by Michael Conforto and Curtis Granderson. Both players hit home runs in the fifth inning, giving Colon a three-run lead. Jeurys Familia came on in the ninth, and made things interesting before finally closing it out. Familiar loaded the bases to kick things off. One run would come around to score, but Familia would induce a double play. With one out, and the tying run at the plate, Familia struck out Andres Blanco for the win. With the victory, the Mets improved to 73-58. They hold a 6.5 game lead over the Washington Nationals in the NL East. NATIONALS BULLPEN CAN'T GET IT DONE The Mets were able to gain a game Monday after the Washington Nationals bullpen imploded. The Nats couldn't hold a lead against the St. Louis Cardinals, eventually falling 8-5. The loss was a real let-down for Washington. After the club fell behind by two runs early, the Nationals managed to claw their way back into the game. The team cut the deficit to one run in the sixth, and managed to take a two-run lead on a Ryan Zimmerman home run the following inning. It wouldn't last. In the bottom of the frame, Casey Janssen struggled to pick up outs. While he did induce a double play ball, it was too late. Janssen was removed after allowing the Cards to tie things up. Felipe Rivero came on in relief, but gave up a two-run double to Jason Heyward and a run-scoring single to Kolten Wong. After the five-run inning, the Cardinals kept the Nationals off the board. With the win, St. Louis improved to 85-46 on the year. Want to see more from Monday's slate of games? Check out our scoreboard .

Just like all his (much) younger teammates, Bartolo Colon loves to face the Phillies. Colon breezed through eight snappy innings and the New York Mets got homers from Curtis Granderson and Michael Conforto, extending their dominant run against Philadelphia with a 3-1 victory Monday night. New York increased its NL East lead to 6 1-2 games over second-place Washington, which lost 8-5 in St. Louis.
