The Mets notched 16 hits and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey provided another solid start Sunday to lead the Mets to 10-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.
Dickey lost his no-hitter early, yielding a lead-off home run to the Brewers’ Rickie Weeks. It marked the 7,695th Mets game with no no-no, and the 107th time a potential no-hitter was broken up by a lead-off homer. (More on our No-hitters killed by first at bat page.)
Dickey threw seven innings for his second win of the season, yielding four earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out three.
The Mets’ 16 hits matched a season high. Jeff Francoeur had a 4-for-5 night with 2 RBIs, and Luis Castillo and Angel Pagan each knocked in two runs.
