TV: WPIX Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets can win another road series with a win this afternoon behind Dickey in this battle of the pitchers that go by initials instead of names. Dickey’s pitching has been inconsistent this season and he hasn’t won a game since April 3rd. But in two starts on the road this season he’s been great with a 1.32 ERA.
Happ has been inconsistent for the Astros too. His last start in Pittsburgh was decent, a no-decision that the Astros lost. He went 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and 4 walks. Generally, he’s been getting hit pretty hard though, the league is hitting .285 against him.
