R.A. Dickey continued his losing ways in Houston today. The dream season that he had last year is nowhere to be found. He blew the game in the first innings by giving up 4 runs on 6 hits and throwing 45 pitches. It was really ugly. He stayed in the game into the sixth finishing with 5.1 innings, 6 runs allowed on 11 hits and no walks.

There wasn’t a lot of offense from the Mets against J.A. Happ today. They had 7 hits and 4 walks as a team. Daniel Murphy hit a solo homer to right in the fourth inning. They strung together some hits to score one in the third and one in the ninth. That was it.

The Mets and Astros will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow afternoon.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
