Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Mike Baxter's pinch-hit single in the bottom of the 10th inning plated the game's only run and lifted the New York Mets to a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday in the opener of a two-game set at Citi Field.

New York starter Matt Harvey was the story for much of the night, as the 24- year-old right-hander struck out a career-high 12 batters and allowed just one hit -- an infield single to Alex Rios with two outs in the seventh -- over nine stellar frames.

The Mets' offense, meanwhile, managed just four hits until the decisive 10th inning, which started with Ike Davis' leadoff walk off Chicago reliever Nate Jones (0-3).

Davis then moved to second on Juan Lagares' bunt before racing home on Baxter's pinch-hit single to right to send the Mets to their third victory in their last four games.

Bobby Parnell (3-0) pitched a perfect top of the 10th to earn the win.

Chicago starter Hector Santiago was nearly as impressive as Harvey, giving up just four hits and two walks while fanning eight over seven strong frames, but it wasn't enough to keep the White Sox from falling for the third time in their last four tries.
