Turning the Tables
A week ago, in a battle of 12-game winners, Washington's Gio Gonzalez was hit hard, while R.A. Dickey pitched well enough to lead the Mets to a victory (their only one since the all-star break). The Nats' lefthander gave up six runs in just 3-1/3 innings leading Davey Johnson to make that unhappy walk to the mound.
Last night at Citi Field, Gonzalez held the Mets to two hits over seven innings, allowing just an unearned run, in the Nationals 5 - 2 win. Touched up for 5 runs, Dickey saw his personal 11-game win streak come to an end.
