Dickey Gets Back On Track As Mets Blanks Dodgers 9-0
R.A. Dickey returned to his dominant form, allowing just three hits through eight innings while Daniel Murphy took care of the offense with five RBI's as the Mets shutout the Dodgers 9-0 on Friday night in Los Angeles.
Dickey (12-1) won his tenth straight decision, rebounding from his worst start in two months - last Sunday when he allowed five runs through six innings against the Yankees.
His counterpart, Aaron Harrang (5-5) gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks through 5.1 innings.
Murphy's five RBI's gives him nine in the last three games, and the Mets second baseman added a homer, his third of the season with all three coming in the last three games.
Ruben Tejada, who's been on a tear since coming of the DL, picked up four more hits and an RBI.
David Wright, Ike Davis and Lucas Duda each drove in a run as well.
