R.A. Dickey (9-6 2.91) vs Livan Hernandez (9-10 3.81)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets and Nats play the rubber game of the series this afternoon. Dickey had a terrible game in Chicago in his last start allowing 7 runs in 6 innings. In two games against the Nats this year he has no decisions and a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings. Hernandez has been bombed in his last three starts. Over that span he’s allowed 20 runs in 15 innings. It looks like a late season fade for the old man.
