Wright, Dickey lead Mets to 9-3 win over Marlins
MIAMI (AP) — David Wright homered and singled three times in his fourth consecutive multi-hit game Saturday, and R.A. Dickey earned his fifth victory by pitching six innings to help the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins 9-3.
The Marlins lost for only the second time in their past 11 games, while the Mets have won six of seven.
Wright singled home a run in the first inning, hit his fourth homer in the third, singled and scored in the sixth, and added an RBI single in the ninth.
Dickey (5-1) gave up two runs and has allowed only seven in his past four starts. The knuckleballer earned a painful RBI when he was hit on his pitching hand in the fifth inning with the bases loaded. He received a visit from a trainer but stayed in the game.
Ricky Nolasco (4-1) gave up nine hits, walked three and hit consecutive batters.
