Mets 3, Nationals 1: Dickey's Better Than Wang

Aw Dickey Dickey.

This game was over when R.A. Dickey's knuckler was dancing. He got eight strikeouts and 14 ground balls on the way to 24 outs. Four hits. 70% of his knuckleballs were strikes! 24 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings for him. Bryce Harper struck out twice and misplayed a David Wright fly ball into a triple. Lucas Duda had a walk and a massive home run and supplied all the offense the team needed. Frank Francisco even found the plate, even if he did give up a home run to Ryan Zimmerman.

It was a good day (game).
