Quick Recap: Phillies 3, Mets 1 — What, You Expected Run Support For Dickey?

Sad Dickey Face.
Sad Dickey Face.

Despite the fact that he struck out eight batters and joined the short list of Mets pitchers with 200 strikeouts in a season, R.A. Dickey allowed three runs, two of which were earned, in seven inning as the Mets lost. Jimmy Rollins struck out to begin the game but reached first base on a passed ball by Mike Nickeas, and he eventually came around to score the Phillies' first run of the game.

Rollins tacked on a solo home run that just barely cleared the fence and narrowly missed Scott Hairston's glove in right field in the fifth. The Mets answered with a run on a Blue Collar Bloop by Daniel Murphy in the bottom of the frame, but they would not score again in the game. Domonic Brown added a superflous insurance run in the seventh with a solo home run of his own against Dickey.

We knew it was over when...

Rollins hit his home run to plate the Phillies' second run of the game.

What else?

  • Dickey's going to need a lot more support from the Mets' lineup if he's going to notch 20 wins this year. The stat is a very poor one, but it would only bolster his hopes of a Cy Young award.
  • Robert Carson, Josh Edgin, and Ramon Ramirez combined for two scoreless innings out of the bullpen.
