NEW YORK METS
Starting Pitcher: R.A. Dickey (8-11, 3.47 ERA)
Dickey went seven shut out innings in his last start. That made for nine consecutive quality starts from the knuckleballer. Against the Nationals, Dickey is 2-3 with a 4.18 ERA.
Starting Pitcher: Ross Detwiler (2-5, 3.83 ERA)
Detwiler missed his last scheduled start because of a rain out, and will therefore be pitching on nine days rest. In his career, he is 1-1 with a 5.11 ERA.
