Remembering Mets History (2010) R.A. Dickey Tosses His First One Hitter
Dickey would lead the club in ERA with 2.84. Dickey spent three seasons with the Mets (2010-2012) winning twenty games in 2012. He also pitched three one hitters with his knuckleball during his Mets tenure.
Tonight, Jerry Manuel's third place Mets (58-57) took Charlie Manuel's second place Phillies (64-51) at Citi Field to a crowd of 35,440. The fans would see a classic a 1-0 pitcher's duel & Dickey's first Mets one hitter. Dickey (7-5) took on the Phillies Cole Hamels (7-8) or Hole Camels as he was known to Mets fans.
The lone Mets run came in the 6th inning. With two outs, David Wright doubled off Hamels to center field. Carlos Beltran followed with a double as well, scoring Wright with the only run of the game, handing Hamels his 9th loss.
