In today's game, the Cubs just touched up young Mets phenom Matt Harvey for two runs in the first inning, which got me to thinking, "Hey, it's good that the Cubs got to him early before he calms down." I'm appealing to baseball minds smarter than I - is this actually a thing? Would love to hear conjecture or statistical analysis below.

Getting to stud pitchers early

I think this is the Tom Glavine effect. He was constantly in trouble early in games, only to turn it around and pitch lights out the rest of the way.
He had a 4.58 era in first innings, and somewhere in the low 3.00s the rest of the way.
Harvey seems to have similar issues, but he's got so little experience, so it's hard to compare.
