Subway Series Game 1 Review: Mets Win Close Game, 2-1


It wasn’t exactly Mike Piazza vs. Roger Clemens, but it was still a much-needed win. The Mets rallied behind a terrific outing by R.A. Dickey, who pitched six innings of four-hit, one-earned-run baseball. The knuckleballer still walked three batters, but he also struck-out six. Dan Murphy smacked his fourth home-run of the season, and Justin Turner continued his impressive RBI-streak (now at six games) when he hit a RBI-double in the fourth inning. The New York Mets are [finally] at the .500 clip (22-22).
