Mets Knuckle Under to Former Team Member

With the Atlanta Braves having been in the throes of a 6-game losing streak prior to arriving in rainy New York Tuesday, and the New York Mets in the midst of their own 4-game downward spiral at the time, something had to give.

Wednesday, Braves ace, Julio Tehran, was in the forefront: allowed only four hits: walked four and struck out foot four; and he improved his record to 4-0 with a 0.91 Earned Run Average in the last seven starts he’s thrown against New York, dating to June 21, 2015.

Today, Braves pitcher, R.A. Dickey, who throws a nasty knuckleball, turned the tables on his former Met teammates. Dickey only gave up two earned runs and struck out three batters, but, unfortunately, threw out his back running to first base in the fourth, thus he was only able to last through five innings.

Dickey, an avid reader who’s written an autobiography, said he would have been an English professor had he not become a baseball player. Perhaps that is why his theme song when he comes to home plate to hit is the music from “Game of Thrones.”
