NEW YORK -- A daily dose of Matt Harvey statistics, coming off Friday's 7-1 win over the Nationals:

• In striking out seven batters, Harvey reached 102 strikeouts over his first 14 career starts. The only Mets with more to start their careers were Dwight Gooden (107) and Nolan Ryan (103).

• Harvey is the first pitcher in the Majors to reach four wins. He ranks fifth with a 0.93 ERA and third with 32 strikeouts. The Mets are 4-0 in games he started, and 4-7 in those he did not.

• He is the first pitcher in baseball's modern era (since 1900) to win his first four starts while allowing no more than 10 hits in those four starts combined, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

• Harvey became the first pitcher since Tim Hudson in 2007 to open the season with four straight starts of seven innings or more and one run or fewer, and the first Mets pitcher to do so since Rick Reed in 2000. The last big leaguer with a longer such streak was Fernando Valenzuela, who went seven consecutive games in 1981.
