The Mets got another decent start from R.A. Dickey. He seems to have a knack for getting through 6 innings without letting the game get away from him. He had a lot runners on base in his 6.1 IP tonight giving up 7 hits and 2 walks. But he didn’t let Marlins get out of control.
The offense was solid with 9 hits and 4 walks. You could even make an argument that Dickey was the offensive star going 2 for 3 with 1 run and 1 RBI. Ruben Tejada was back from the minors and immediately made a contribution going 1 for 4 with 1 run and 1 RBI.
K-Rod came into the ninth with a 1-run lead and made things interesting again. He gave up a hit and a walk but managed to work out of it to get his 11th save of the season.
