Another Tough Luck Loss For Dickey

The Mets dropped their third game in a row, losing to Washington by a score of 3-2.

  • R.A. Dickey went seven innings, giving up three runs on five hits, while striking out seven and walking none. He had another quality start tonight, but defense was an issue yet again on the left side of the infield. He was also charged with two wild pitches. Such is the life of a knuckleballer.
  • David Wright committed an error in the fifth inning, allowing for Wilson Ramos to drive in a run, giving the Nationals a 1-0 lead. This was Wright's fourth error in the past three games, and his sixth error in the past seven games.
  • After falling behind the Nats, 2-0, in the sixth inning, the Mets came back to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning on a David Wright single and a double from Angel Pagan.
  • The Mets had a chance to take the lead in sixth inning, but Nats reliever Todd Coffey managed to strike out the reigning National League Player of the Week, Jason Bay.
  • Jose Reyes went 0-4 at the plate, snapping a 14-game hitting streak.
  • Josh Stinson, Daniel Herrera, D.J. Carrasco, and Tim Byrdak pitched a combined two innings of scoreless relief.

Next Up: The Mets continue their series against the Nationals tomorrow night at Citi Field. Dillon Gee starts for New York. Chien-Ming Wang takes the mound for Washington. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
