Mets fans knew he deserved it, but some thought maybe his style of pitching would steer votes to other candidates. But knuckle ball and all, R.A. Dickey grabbed 27 of 32 first place votes to take home the National League Cy Young Award on Wednesdady, becoming just the third Mets pitcher to win the award.

Dickey led the league in strikeouts (230), quality starts (27) and innings pitched (233 2/3), while finishing second in wins (20) and ERA (2.73).

The 38-year-old had three complete game shutouts and tossed consecutive complete game one hitters. Plus he set a franchise record with 32 2/3 scoreless innings.

Tom Seaver won the award three times as a Met, while Dwight Gooden added another.

Final vote tallies for this year’s NL Cy Young:

  • Dickey – 209 points
  • Clayton Kershaw – 96 points
  • Gio Gonzalez – 93 points
  • Johnny Cueto – 75 points
  • Craig Kimbrel – 41 points
  • Matt Cain – 22 points
  • Kyle Lohse – 6 points
  • Aroldis Chapman – 1 point
  • Cole Hamels – 1 point
