Game #147: Phillies 3, Mets 1

Nope! Turns out we didn't even have Dickey's 19th to look forward to.

R.A. Dickey turned in a quality start but picked up the loss as Cliff Lee and the Phillies furthered themselves back into the Wild Card chase at the expense of the Mets, 3-1.

The Bad Stuff:
  • That big fat "L" in R.A. Dickey's corner. Plus two solo home runs.
  • (Insert same old offensive woes, including 11 strikeouts)
The Good Stuff:
  • Dickey's actual numbers: 7 innings, 5 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 2 walks, 8 strikeouts (giving him 205 on the season)
Final Analysis:
Dickey's certainly doing his part to try to win the Cy Young. It's his backing bats that are failing him and skewing that record; what was once 18-4 is now 18-6. Here's hoping the voters really do look past W-L record, because the way R.A. has pitched for what turned out to be a lousy team is certainly praiseworthy.
