NEW YORK -- Hours after learning that All-Star starter Matt Harvey has a torn elbow ligament, New York Mets manager Terry Collins didnt care who Zack Wheeler was about to face. Rasmus Andersson Jersey . The potential ace of the rotation was done for the night. "We said before the game that 105 was the limit," Collins said of Wheelers pitch count. "Obviously, after what happened earlier today were sticking to it." Wheeler was lifted with a runner on second and two outs in the seventh with Phillies lefty Cliff Lee ready to bat. Lee ended up pitching eight innings and leading Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over New York on Monday night. Wheeler (6-3) was outstanding in his 13th big league start, giving up a two-run triple to Cody Asche among five hits. New York lost for just the second time in his last 10 outings. "I understand but I really want to be out there," Wheeler said of being lifted in the seventh. "Its definitely going to be a while before any of us get back up there in pitch count. Its not their fault, but its just human when your best pitcher goes down." The Mets were stunned to learn Harvey has a torn ulnar collateral ligament. The right-hander felt more discomfort in his forearm than usual Saturday during his start against Detroit. He was sent to the Hospital for Special Surgery on Monday for an exam, which included an MRI. A full prognosis wont be made until swelling in the elbow goes down in about two weeks. "It was the last thing I was expecting when I went this morning," Harvey said Monday. "I am going to do everything I can to avoid surgery." Harvey admitted he was tired against the Tigers, the 26th start of his first full season in the major leagues. Collins said he noticed Harveys pitches werent as crisp, a sign of fatigue. "Nothing is shooting in my elbow at all. Thats not the issue," Harvey said. "When I heard the news, I was pretty shocked. Im still very optimistic." General manager Sandy Alderson said during a downcast news conference the injury wasnt caused by one incident, but is "progressive," so even if the 24-year-old Harvey can avoid surgery now it might be necessary in the future. Recovery time for Tommy John surgery is about a year. The No. 7 pick in the 2010 draft, Harvey is 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA. He has an NL-leading 191 strikeouts in 178 1-3 innings and was a top candidate for the Cy Young Award. "It put everybody down," catcher Travis dArnaud said. "When we heard the news, everybody was just speechless. I just feel terrible, man." The Mets were working on limiting Harveys innings to a little more than 200 this season. Alderson said there is no real formula for managing the careers of young pitchers. "These innings limits are not a guarantee of anything. Theyre certainly not based on any science," Alderson said. "This is a kind of progressive injury that isnt a function of ... we dont believe in this case a specific incident or quote overuse. Its an anatomical fact that these things happen." The blow is particularly tough for an organization that has not been to the playoffs since 2006, and hasnt had a winning season in its new ballpark that opened in 2009. But Harvey was the first of several top young pitchers who were supposed to help lead New York back to the post-season, and Mets captain David Wright cited the talent in the minor leagues as one of the reasons he signed a big contract to remain in New York last winter. Wright sat next to Harvey in the dugout to watch the first couple of innings of fellow first-round pick Wheelers outing. Wheeler didnt disappoint, but the 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner Lee was a bit better. Lee (11-3) gave a bullpen taxed by an 18-inning loss Saturday a much-needed rest. He allowed a run and five hits to win for the first time in seven starts since July 5. He also made several nice plays in the field. Asche hit his first major league triple -- with two outs in the fourth -- as the Phillies improved to 7-4 under new manager Ryne Sandberg and won for the second time in 15 road games. The Phillies avoided falling again behind the Mets, who lost their fifth straight and dropped into fourth place in the NL East. Jonathan Papelbon was perfect in the ninth for his 22nd save in 28 opportunities. Until the eighth, Lee didnt face trouble after the Mets got a gift in the second inning when they took a 1-0 lead. Marlon Byrd led off the second with a routine fly to right-centre. In what appeared to be a moment of indecision between centre fielder Roger Bernadina and right fielder John Mayberry Jr., the ball fell in between the two for a double. Byrd scored on Andrew Browns single. With two outs in the eighth, Lee struck out Juan Lagares with runners on first and second after falling behind 2-0 in the count-- the Mets only inning besides the second in which they had more than one baserunner. "I didnt feel as good as it turned out, to be honest with you," Lee said. "I felt like I had to battle and was able to continue to get outs." NOTES: Collins said RHP Carlos Torres will start Thursday in place of Harvey. Torres got two outs Monday. ... The Phillies placed OF Casper Wells on the 15-day DL because of vision problems. Pete Orr was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. ... Mets 1B Josh Satins streak of reaching base in all 29 games as a starter ended. Kris Versteeg Jersey .Y.

Interestingly, the culprits were not rookies, but well paid, experienced pros. The first gaffe came in the 24th minute of arguably the biggest early season MLS game in history between Seattle and Toronto. Sounder newcomer Marco Pappa, (with over 100 MLS games, and 39 Guatemalan Caps to his name) attempted a back pass to one of his central defenders.NEW YORK, N.Y. - On the morning of June 7, the Toronto Blue Jays were 38-24 and led the AL East by six games. Since then theyve sputtered to a 39-51 record and have little chance to end their two-decade-plus post-season drought. The faded Blue Jays tied their longest losing streak of the season at five games Thursday night, losing to the New York Yankees 3-2 when first baseman Adam Lind allowed Chase Headleys two-hop grounder in the ninth inning to bounce under his glove and through his legs for a game-ending error. "It happened so fast. Basically, I didnt make the play," Lind said. "I thought I was focused on the ball. He hit it pretty hard, almost right at me." New York (78-74) moved ahead of Toronto (77-75) for sole possession of second place in the AL East, and the Blue Jays are six games back in the wild card race with 10 games left. Toronto hasnt made the playoffs since winning consecutive World Series titles in 1992 and 93. The hope of spring has long since evaporated. "Its disappointing for everybody. Theres no way around that," said R.A. Dickey, who stretched his scoreless streak against the Yankees to 19 innings before allowing Stephen Drews RBI double in the fifth and Derek Jeters home run in the sixth. "Weve been a streaky team all year, both bad and good, and right now were in the middle of a bad streak." Toronto tied the score in the eighth when Jose Reyes singled with two outs and Jose Bautista homered off Shawn Kelley on an 0-2 pitch, slamming his bat as he neared first base. Bauttista homered in his fourth straight game against the Yankees and has hit seven of his 33 homers this year against New York. Matt Stajan Jersey. "Any time you come back late and tie it up, youve got a good feeling," Toronto manager John Gibbons said, "but weve been having trouble scoring runs." The Blue Jays went on to lose for the 18th time in their last 20 games at Yankee Stadium. Not the season Gibbons was hoping for in the second season of his second stint as Toronto manager. "Its frustrating, but in this game the best teams go and the ones that arent good enough, they dont go. Its that simple," Gibbons said. After David Robertson (3-6) pitched a perfect ninth, Chris Young singled off Aaron Sanchez (2-2) leading off the bottom half. Speedy pinch-runner Antoan Richardson stole second, Brett Gardner sacrificed him to third on a 3-2 pitch and, with the infield in, Headley hit the bouncer to Lind. "Defence matters in this game," Gibbons said. "Then they put a guy on there that could fly. Its a tough way to lose a game. No doubt. Theyre all tough." LONG OUTINGS Toronto starting pitchers have gone six innings or more in a team-record 24 consecutive games, five more than the previous mark in 1998. TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: C Dioner Navarro pinch-hit and stayed in after missing Wednesdays game because of dizziness. He was hit on the mask by a foul tip Tuesday.
