However, rather than take a step forward, Moore regressed and posted a 5.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 32 games.
Moore (5-13) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 6.2 innings to pick up the win Friday against the White Sox Moore had his last start skipped as the Giants rearranged their rotation due to injuries and returns from injury.
The rest seemed to do him well, as he rebounded well from his last start, a putrid outing in San Diego where he allowed two homers and five earned runs.
Moore has been quietly solid of late, as he now owns a 3.21 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over his last seven outings dating back to August 13.
New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey's failure to turn up to a game on Saturday was sparked over pictures of his supermodel girlfriend cozying up to her ex at a ritzy gala, it has been claimed.
Harvey was reportedly distraught on May 2 after seeing pictures of his rumored flame, Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima, attending Rihanna's Met Gala after-party with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, according to Page Six.
The 35-year-old Brazilian model has been seen canoodling with Harvey in recent weeks - not long after she and Edelman reportedly split up.
Not only did Harvey have to endure the pain of seeing Lima together with her old flame, but he also discovered that she had unfollowed him on Instagram shortly after the event, according to Page Six.
The painful realization that it was over between him and Lima was apparently too much to bear for 'the Dark Knight'.'Adriana’s relationship with Matt was never serious,' a source told Page Six.
Moore's team option was exercised by the Giants on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
