The Mets head down to Miami today to take on the Marlins in what will be an important series to stay out of the basement of the National League East. Going into yesterday’s game the Mets had a four game winning streak that was snapped even after a quality start of Jon Niese and the bullpen holding down the fort. Tonight R.A. Dickey takes the mound as he faces Nathan Eovaldi, who just keeps drawing the Mets.
R.A. Dickey is 16-4 on the season over 186.1 innings of work while posting an ERA of 2.76 striking out 183 batters. In his last two starts he has pitched a combined 14.0 innings while allowing only 2 earned runs. Dickey is 3-0 in as many starts this year against the Marlins holding them to 1.64 earned runs per game over 22 innings. The Marlins have the following numbers against Dickey:
Lee 9-25, 3 2B, HR
Buck 3-13, 2B
