The Miami Marlins ran into a buzz saw on Thursday and his name is R.A. Dickey. The New York Mets ace pitched an amazing game against the Marlins, pitching a complete game for his 15th win of the season as the Mets won 6-1 against Miami.
After falling behind 1-0 in the second inning on an RBI single by Mets catcher Josh Thole, Marlins centerfielder Justin Ruggiano hit a solo home run in the top of the fourth inning. That would be the only offense the Marlins could muster in the game.
Mets centerfielder Andres Torres finished the game 3-for-3 and a single shy of the cycle. In the later innings he hit an RBI double, triple and home run, recording three RBIs, all but giving the Mets the win.
Marlins starting pitcher Josh Johnson lasted six innings and allowed three runs on eight hits for the game. His record dropped to 7-8.
