Quick Recap: Mets 4, Marlins 3 — Dickey Wins Nineteenth Game

R.A. Dickey was brilliant yet again for the Mets. He threw eight scores innings before the first two Marlins to face him in the ninth walked and doubled. Jon Rauch took over and promptly served up a three-run home run off the left field foul pole. He just barely managed to finish the inning without blowing the lead. Fortunately, the Mets scored four runs earlier in the game to get Dickey his nineteenth win of the season. Jason Bay hit a two-run home run in the second, Scott Hairston hit a solo shot to lead off the fourth, and Josh Thole scored on a gaffe by Carlos Lee in the fifth.

At this point, it'd be pretty damn cool if Dickey gets twenty, especially if he does so at home on Thursday against the free-falling Pirates.

We knew it was over when...

Dickey took the mound against the Marlins' "lineup."

What else?

Dickey just barely missed hitting a grand slam in the sixth inning. Had the ball cleared the fence in left field, it would have been the single best play of the 2012 season.
