NEW YORK (AP) Matt Harvey walked onto the Citi Field mound for the first time in 3 years, 9 days, his brown eyes darting around the stadium where he became a star and left in ignominy.

"There's been so many ups and downs here at this ballpark and with this organization that I didn't really know what to expect," he said later. "What the fans gave me out there was pretty incredible. I was holding back tears."

Harvey received three standing ovations, but his outing for Baltimore was no better than his final performances for New York. Pitching against against the Mets for the first time, Harvey allowed Kevin Pillar's two-run triple in a three-run second inning that carried New York over the Orioles 7-1 on Wednesday for a seven-game winning streak.
