The New York Mets lost a heart breaker last night in Miami when Frank Francisco blew his second save of the season and allowed the Marlins to celebrate a walk-off victory. Though the Mets 5-game winning streak was snapped, they showed a lot of grit in battling back late in the game, something that has become somewhat of their calling card of late.
Dickey has been tremendous for the Mets all year and is coming off pitching an absolute gem against the D-Backs (8 IP, 4 H, 1 ER). R.A. also had Miami figured out in his first start against them this season, earning a ‘W’ after going 7 innings and giving up only 1 ER. It’s all just another day at the office for one of the more underrated pitchers in the league. If the team had any visions of being down on themselves after a tough loss, there’s no better pitcher to pick them up than Dickey (don’t worry they won’t be wearing the road black jerseys, this was just the only pic I could dig up).
