The four runs were all the Mets needed today because everyone (or soon to be everyone, I'll launch a campaign if I have to) favorite Met, R.A. Dickey cruised through this game. He ended up pitching 8.1, 3 hit, scoreless innings as he kept the Cards guessing all afternoon (well not all afternoon, it was a fairly quick game). He got into some trouble in the ninth allowing two runners on with one out vs Pujols so Krod came in and…..Didn't Make It Interesting! He popped up Pujols and then struck out Holliday to make it a clean two up two down rest of the inning and he notched his 22nd save of the game.
There was also a comical moment in the bottom of the eigth as a wild pitch from MacDougal went into the advertisement behind the plate and ripped a hole in it. This is of course pictured above.
