The Least You Should Know:
R.A. Dickey started for the Mets and he went the distance, tossing a complete-game, five-hit shutout for his 17th win of the season.
Ike Davis drove in all three runs for the Mets – he had a sacrifice fly in the fourth and a long, two-run home run in the seventh.
The Mets five through nine hitters went 0-for-15 on the night.

Michael Baron, ContributorDickey was magnificent tonight. He did everything he needed to do – he dominated with his knuckleball, threw strikes, induced contact when he needed to and didn’t allow any extra base hits. What more can you say about him? He’s had a dream season – each and every performance is riveting and must-see TV at this point.
Ike Davis looks so much better at the plate now. His swing isn’t nearly as busy as it was earlier in the season, he’s not out in front like he was, and he’s making a ton more contact as a result. He hit an absolute bomb in the seventh inning – that is the Ike we’ve come to know in his young career. Hopefully he finishes strong and can have something positive to takeaway from this season. So far, he’s done an outstanding job of putting his horrific start in the rearview mirror.
