The Mets finally got the kind of start from R.A. Dickey that they’ve been looking for. He still didn’t look as sharp as he did last season but he certainly pitched well enough to get the job done. He went 6 innings allowing 1 run on 4 hits and 3 walks. It was a great job against a solid Yankees lineup.

The Mets offense was pretty weak except for you know who… Justin Turner. This guy is on fire going 3 for 4 tonight with a big RBI double in the fourth inning. He’s hitting .364 and has an RBI in 6 straight games. Daniel Murphy chipped in with a solo homer in the sixth inning from the two hole to cap the scoring for the win.

The Mets looked pretty impressive against a good Yankees team. It’s great that this team with six guys that could be in Buffalo right now are playing some decent ball.
