After barely missing out on winning Player of the Month for the month of May, Dickey once again put up great numbers this month and has earned the honors for the month of June. He had a 5-0 record with a 0.93 earned run average. He had great control of his knuckleball this month, as he kept his walks down and his strikeouts high. He threw back-to-back 1-hit complete game shutouts against the Tampa Bay Rays and against the Baltimore Orioles. His lone bad start came against the New York Yankees where he gave up 5 earned runs but received a no decision.

R.A. Dickey became the fifth pitcher in franchise history to win 10 straight decisions. The last Mets pitcher to accomplish that feat was Johan Santana, who won 10 straight from July 9, 2008-April 6, 2009. The others are Tom Seaver (16 wins from 1969-1970), Dwight Gooden (14 wins in 1985) and Terry Leach (10 in 1987).

Dickey leads the majors with 12 wins, is third in the majors with a 2.15 ERA and is second in the NL and third in the majors with 116 strikeouts. He is already being mentioned as a possible Cy Young candidate, and might be starting this year’s All Star Game. He truly deserves this month’s honor!
