With a sub-4 ERA, R.A. Dickey has pitched well enough to have better than a 1-3 record.
The fault lies in large part to the offense, which has given him just eight runs over his last four starts. That pretty much explains it.
The Mets won his last start when they rallied with a four-run ninth inning at Washington, but Dickey didn’t receive a decision as he gave up two runs in 6.2 innings.
The Mets’ offense overall has been in a funk as it has scored just nine runs while going 4-for-34 with runners in scoring position over the past four games following the team’s six-game winning streak.
David Wright is showing some signs of offensive life with five hits in his last three games, but he’s far from having things figured out with 32 strikeouts already this season in 110 at-bats.
