St. Petersburg, FL – R.A. Dickey fired a complete game one- hitter and struck out a career-high 12 batters Wednesday as the Mets dominated the Rays, 9-1.
The knuckleballer didn't allow a walk and the only hit he surrendered was B.J. Upton's infield single with two outs in the first -- a high bouncer that third baseman David Wright was unable to field.
Mets manager Terry Collins said the team will ask the commissioner's office to change the ruling on Upton's hit.
"We said in the ninth inning that we've got to appeal that play. We're probably not going to win it, but ... what the heck? What do you got to lose except to have somebody say no?" Collins said on the team's website. "You've just got to give him his due. He deserves it."
Less than two weeks ago, Johan Santana pitched the first no-no in franchise history.
