Mets End Skid Against the Fish, Win 4-3

Tonight Dickey was good and the offense did just enough to lead the Mets to a 4-3 win tonight in the "Citi" (box score/wrap up).

R.A. Dickey improves to 3-0 this season, pitching 6 and 1/3 innings giving up 7 hits and allowing 3 runs, while striking out 4.  Dickey was pulled in favor of Feliciano who got an out and gave up a hit, and then gave way to Elmer Dessens who gave up NOTHING in an inning and a third of work.  Dessens looked great tonight, and that was huge lift for the Mets.  K-Rod did his usual and made the game ENTIRELY TOO EXCITING, but eventually recorded the save thanks to a nice play from Wright to close it out.

At the plate, Bay, Francoeur and DICKEY all recorded multi-hit games.  Ruben Tejada doubled, scored a run and had an RBi ground out in his first game back with the big club.  Francoeur, Dickey and Bay drove in the other runs for the Mets.  Also of note, Reyes went 1-2 with 2 walks and stole a bag.

A win is a win, and that's all that matters.  BUT, I need to admit I'm a bit concerned with Ike, whose average is now down to .248, ehhh.  Frenchy, by the way, is really hot right now and is up to .258.  I guess Frenchy likes June better than May...

Tomorrow Niese is back to face the Marlins and Nate Robertson.  The game is on FOX at 4:10.  Hopefully the Mets can stay hot at home and win the series tomorrow...
