BOSTON, MA -- Found inside a 6-4 Yankees road win was a superb performance from the bullpen. Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren, Dellin Betances, and David Robertson tossed a combined 4 1/3 innings of two-hit ball, yielding just one run. Inside that? Three triple-digit fastballs from Dellin Betances to Mike Napoli, one clocking a career-high 101 MPH on the Fenway Park radar gun.

"When I get an out, I kind of look back," said Betances. "I saw it and I said 'Oh, wow.'"

The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.

PIcked 7th overall in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, Matt Harvey had already arrived in the Major League Clubhouse for Mets Spring Training. The UNC alum is in position to speed through the minor leagues after spending time with the Mets Advanced A and AA squads last year.

Before his re-assignment to minor league camp, Harvey spent his time picking the brain of all the pitchers with MLB experience, especially Miguel Batista. Harvey warmed up with Batista every day and learned how to 'finish' on his pitches from him.
