Both team’s starters struggled, as it became a “battle of the offense.” R.A. Dickey pitched six innings, surrendering seven hits, six earned-runs, one walk, and one strike-out. Dickey was very hittable, but the good news is that his walks were down.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Mets offense was on beat. Carlos Beltran and Ike Davis each connected for home-runs, and Jose Reyes recorded three hits and three walks. Despite a few pass balls behind the dish, Josh Thole did contribute three hits. While the Mets offense was exciting, it wasn’t good enough to out-hit the San Francisco Giants.
