Dickey Allows Two Homers In 3-1 Lose To Phillies
Mets offense falls flat once more as R.A. Dickey gets hit for two homeruns against the Phils. Mets lose a rough one, 3-1.
R.A. Dickey pitched his heart out, but the offense fell flat for him once more and unlucky mishaps plagued them. A dropped third strike to Rollins in the first caused to be an issue as Dickey gives up a throwing error that moved him to third and then a sac fly brings him in for an early lead. Rollins scores again as he knocked a debatable homer into right field. The third run comes from a homerun by Domonic Brown in the seventh. Dickey gets his sixth lose despite only three runs (two earned) on five hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts in seven innings pitched.
The bullpen held it together as Rob Carson, Josh Edgin, and Ramon Ramirez combine for two innings with only one hit allowed.
Mets tally seven hits, but only one run in. A soft single by Murphy to knock in Mike Nickeas.
Mets also tallied 11 strikeouts and only one walk.
Daniel Murphy with the only RBI, with two outs at that.
David Wright, 1-for-4, down to .310 on the season. No longer mister .400.
Game two of this series in Citi Field against the Phils continues tomorrow. Mets will have Matt Harvey, Phillies will have rookie, Tyler Cloyd (1-1, 4.95). Game time is at 7:10 pm.
