Make it three.
Dickey power. R.A. Dickey’s process wasn’t phenomenal, but the end result was just fine. Six innings, allowing seven hits and three walks, but striking out a career-high seven and getting out of two bases loaded situations. Again, not the best way to go about a game, but a win is a win is a win.
RAUUUL. Mr. Valdes turned in three solid innings in relief, allowing two hits and walking two. He struck out four. He also went 1-1 with an RBI double.
The offense. Every starter but Dickey and Ike Davis had a hit. Six different players drove in runs. Six different players scored.
Jose Reyes went 3-5, driving in one and scoring three times. He tripled in his RBI. He also stole two bases.
Jeff Francoeur had a very nice game, going 2-3 with a double, 2 RBI and a run scored.
The Mets did not strike out.
The Bad & Ugly
The Phillies left 13 runners on base. Ouch.
Dickey and Jose.
Same teams, same park, tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
