Gio Gonzalez (6-5 2.69) vs. R.A. Dickey (3-7 4.00)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: After losing the first game of the series, the Mets need to win tonight and tomorrow to take the series from the A’s and avoid a losing home stand. It won’t be easy going up against Gonzalez tonight. He’s having an excellent season so far. He did it last year too. In 2010, he had a 3.23 ERA in 33 starts for the A’s.
Dickey will be looking to regain his form after having a terrible start in Atlanta last week. He gave up 4 runs in 4 innings and just didn’t look like himself. Maybe Jason Bay can help him out tonight by continuing to hit the ball again.
