By the shores of Miccosukee,
By the shining Canal-Water,
R. A. Dickey threw one pitch he
Oughta maybe notta.
R.A. Dickey, one out away from logging 7 scoreless innings, instead gave up a 3 run pinch-hit homer to Tyler Moore, and that was the ballgame. Dickey ended up allowing 5 hits, 3 earned runs, and 3 walks in his 7 innings, while recording only 1 strikeout. Dickey has been doing what he was brought here to do, whatever one thinks of the decision to bring him here to do such.
The Braves parlayed 8 hits and 6 walks into a single run. The RBI – so maligned at the Macro level, yet its importance so apparent at the Micro level.
The Braves still took the series, 2 games to 1, but fall to 2 and 3 on the road trip. Freddie Freeman went 2 for 5 to raise his batting average to .344. We’ll try again Monday night in Toronto.
The funniest thing I ever heard about Miami: The worst open in the history of baseball.
