Johan Santana and the Mets made history last night. Honestly, since the last out of last night’s game thinking of baseball has been surreal. I’m positive no fan base ever has or ever will celebrate a regular season no-hitter like the Mets and Mets fans did last night. Anyway, Dickey is charged with following up Johan Santana’s performance as he takes on the Cardinals in this afternoon’s game. The Cardinals will be sending out Lance Lynn to try to quiet the Mets bats.
Dickey is 7-1 on the season with a 3.06 ERA over 64.2 innings of work. In the month of May Dickey made 5 starts with a 4-0 record over 34.0 innings of work and a 1.83 ERA. Last season he faced the Cardinals once going 6.1 innings allowing 8 hits and 4 earned runs. The Cardinals have the following numbers on R.A. Dickey:
Beltran 4-14, HR
Holliday 3-6, 2B
Lance Lynn is 8-1 this season with a 2.54 ERA over 63.2 innings of work. In his last four starts he is 2-1 over 25.0 innings of work with an ERA of 4.32. Lance has a very limited history against the Mets, last season he faced the Mets for 1.2 innings allowing 1 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Lynn:
