Matt Harvey is picking up where he left off in 2012.

The hard throwing 24-year-old struck out ten Padres in his season debut, marking the third time in eleven career starts that he’s K’d at least ten. Harvey (1-0) allowed just one hit and two walks in his seven innings of work, as the Mets beat San Diego 8-4 to open the season 2-0.

Lucas Duda and John Buck each had two hits, including a two-run homer, and Ike Davis snapped an 0-7 start to the season with a long two-run blast of his own, helping the Mets build an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning.

All eight runs came off Padres starter Clayton Richard (0-1), who was tagged for seven hits and seven earned over 4 and 1/3 innings.

LaTroy Hawkins, 40, had an ugly debut with the Mets, allowing three ninth inning runs as San Diego made the score more respectable. Bobby Parnell was called in and retired the only batter he faced to end the game.
