The Mets lost tonight despite a complete game from R.A. Dickey. He went 8 innings allowing 3 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks. It was another gutty performance on a bad foot. He didn’t deserve the loss and really didn’t deserve to give up all of the runs as earned. Andrew McCutchen doubled in the third inning on a play that should have been made by Daniel Murphy at third base. Two runs scored and that was the difference in the game. It was another example of how you can’t hide Murphy in the field and it cost the Mets a game.

The Mets were hitting well tonight with 10 hits and 4 walks in the game. Jose Reyes had 2 more hits raising his season average to .341. And Ruben Tejada was second in the order and went 2 for 4 raising his average to .338.
