Zack Wheeler’s first strikeout of the day came when he fired an up-and-in 95 mph fastball blowing it past Braves slugger Justin Upton in the first inning.

“You get a hitter like that who’s a fastball hitter missing pitches like that it says something for the type of stuff he has” catcher John Buck said. “If you can miss out over the plate with a fastball hitter looking for the fastball and you get him to miss that’s God-given tools he doesn’t give everybody.”

Wheeler delivered at Citi Field allowing four runs (three earned) striking out five and walking two over six innings in the Mets’ 7-4 victory.

So far in his rookie season Wheeler is becoming the anti-Matt Harvey in terms of decisions — he has racked up four wins in seven starts a combination of solid pitching and strong run support.

The 23-year-old right-hander is now 4-1 with a 3.72 ERA. The Mets who are scoring an average of more than six runs per game for Wheeler are 5-2 in his seven starts and 4-0 in his last four turns. They’re also an impressive 20-13 since he was promoted to the big leagues on June 18.

“It’s fun when you’re playing well” Wheeler said. “We’ve got a good group of guys right now that are really mixing well.”

But as manager Terry Collins pointed out the surge is not entirely Wheeler’s doing. Part of it is Wheeler. Part of it is others who Collins mentioned like Eric Young Jr. Marlon Byrd Josh Satin Carlos Torres. Certainly David Wright and Harvey which goes without saying.
