Mets Game 102: Win Over Cardinals
Mets 4 Cardinals 0
The mighty Mets continue their domination of the National League.
Due to my “real” job I missed seeing the game live, so thanks to Paul and Mic for helping out with the recap in the comments section.
R.A. Dickey flicked floaters for eight-plus frames, holding the Cardinals scoreless on four hits as he cruised to his 7th win of the year. Rather than finish the game, he let Francisco Rodriguez come in and get the final two outs for his 22nd save.
The Mets received all the runs they needed when Ike Davis delivered a monster blast over the centerfield wall to give the home team a 3-0 lead in the third inning.
At some point in October, when the Mets are in the middle of sweeping the Padres in the NLCS, we will all look back at the closed door meetings from Monday and this series win over St. Louis as the turning point of the season.
