Mets 4 – Marlins 3 June 4, 2010

New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey throws a pitch to the Florida Marlins in New York

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.

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.
