Blake Hawksworth (4-6 5.23) vs R.A. Dickey (6-4 2.55)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets and Cardinals play the rubber game of the series early today. Most of Hawksworth’s appearance have come out of the bullpen and he hasn’t fared very well recently. So the Mets have a chance and getting some good offense going today. Dickey left his last start with an injured leg but it wasn’t serious, so he’ll go again today. He’s been outstanding this season, almost beyond belief.
