Mets V.s Rays Final Score: Tampa Bay Can't Figure Out R.A. Dickey, Lose 9-1

The Tampa Bay Rays found themselves in a 7-0 hole to the New York Mets after six innings of work, as starting pitcher David Price lasted just five innings, but the Rays offense couldn't do much to help him out. Tampa Bay struggled to get runners on base and figure out R.A. Dickey's knuckle ball. Dickey pitched a complete game, giving up just a single hit and set a new record for most innings without an earned run at 32.2.

B.J. Upton picked up the Rays only hit in their 9-1 loss, but they've now dropped two in a row to the Mets and will try to avoid being swept on Thursday. The team will need score a heck of a lot more runs however, as their offense has been limited to just three runs total so far in the series.
