The Mets started Matt Harvey on Tuesday night in part to sell more tickets at Citi Field -- a strategy that worked. Television viewers also responded to Harvey's first home start since 2013.

The Mets' victory over the Phillies averaged 4.32 percent of area homes, SNY's best rating since July 5, 2012. It averaged 429,161 viewers, SNY's highest such figure since June 23, 2010.
