"We Unearned By SCOTT ROSENBERG Palm Beach Post Staff Writer PORT ST. LUCIE - Denny Harriger was admittedly and understandably nervous Monday night before his first Florida State League start. The 19-year-old right-hander arrived from Pittsfield (Mass.) of the New York-Penn League the night before his assignment against the Miami Miracle. Pitching for the Class A St. Lucie Mets, in front of a Fireworks Night crowd of 5,101, Harriger was nervous when he strolled out to the mound in the first inning. It showed. He was hit hard, as the Miracle scored three runs on a double and a triple on their way to a 3-1 victory. But Harriger (0-1) should have been out of the inning. With two outs, an error by shortstop Alex Diaz prolonged the inning, and the three runs Harriger allowed were unearned. Harriger lost his FSL debut, but he didn't blame Diaz. "The guys are going to make errors. I should have concentrated a little more after that and gotten a ground ball instead of allowing the triple and the double," Harriger said. "If I get a ground ball and get the guy out, it's a 1-0 game. You just can't blame it on the error." The error that led to the three unearned runs came on a routine ground ball to Diaz. With two outs the inning. Charlton came in to start the sixth when Rijo was forced to leave because of back spasms while warming up. Barry Larkin drew a leadoff walk in the Reds' seventh and two passed balls put him on third base with one out. Howell escaped by getting Paul O'Neill on a grounder and Todd Benzinger on a fly ball. , Mets 3, Astros 1 HOUSTON - Tim Teufel and Mark Carreon hit consecutive home runs that broke a seventh-inning tie and sent New York over Houston. David Cone (5-5) gave up one run on five hits in 7Vb innings.' He walked five and struck out five. Randy Myers finished for his 12th save. Teufel led off the seventh with his first home run of the season. Carreon followed with his third homer off Jim Deshaies (8-4). After a walk, Danny Darwin relieved. Deshaies gave up six hits, struck out eight and walked two.' Houston took a 1-0 lead in the first on singles by Gerald Young and Bill Doran and a double by Glenn Davis. 0 lead. Harriger, a sinkerball pitcher who was 2-0 at Pittsfield, settled down after that, allowing just four singles. In 6V3 innings, he gave up six hits and the three unearned runs while walking three and striking out two. "I really was nervous. I didn't expect to be starting my first day here," Harriger said. "I was a little tight, but I seemed to relax as the game went on. I was nervous, but I have to get that out of my system. I can't use it as an excuse. But being it's my first time pitching here, I guess I was pretty pleased." Hurdle also was pleased with Harriger's performance, but would have been more so had the Mets been able to provide some offensive support. Miami 3, STL MIAMI ST.
