NEW YORK (AP) -- Matt Harvey bounced back from a rare loss with his first career shutout -- not before giving everyone a scare -- and the Mets top position prospect Wilmer Flores drove in his first big league runs with a three-run double, leading the New York Mets to a 5-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

Harvey (9-3) gave up four hits in his 33rd career start. He pitched nine innings of one-hit ball on May 7 but New York lost in 10.

Not this time. The rookie third baseman helped make sure of that.

Filling in for injured David Wright, Flores cleared the bases in the eighth against Manny Corpas. Omar Quintanilla and John Buck each had RBI singles off Jhoulys Chacin (10-6), who lost for just the third time in his last 11 starts.
