Isn’t it always the way in projected pitching duels? They get thrust into the background. R.A. Dickey’s consecutive scoreless streak was snapped in he got a no-decision in a wild game.
When Dickey gave up that homer to NIck Swisher, I thought it was over, but the Mets weren’t deflated from being down by four runs and battled back. If ever there was a game that could take the air out of their balloon, last night was it.
They didn’t win and lost the the series, but they showed something positive which could pay off for them. Baseball is a funny game when it comes to riding emotions and the Mets’ are still high.
