Dickey can't claim 21st win in 4-3 loss to Marlins

In his final start of the season, New York Mets starter R.A. Dickey was strong but unable to claim the victory as the Miami Marlins topped the Mets in 11 innings, 4-3.

Jose Reyes' triple to center to lead off the bottom of the 11th inning set Donovan Solano up to knock him in four batters alter, sending the Marlins to a second straight victory over the Mets in their final series of the year.

Solano ended the game after David Wright's RBI single in the eighth inning jump-started the slumbering Mets' offense in the eighth inning to tie the game and force it into extras.

Dickey was aiming to claim his 21st victory of the year, but his three runs over six innings was not enough to secure the victory in his final start of the year.

Dickey was touched up for two solo home runs by Gorkys Hernandez and Rob Brantly. The Marlins added a third run off of Dickey in the sixth inning on a Carlos Lee single that scored Reyes.

Beyond Dickey's final chance to impress Cy Young voters with a possible 21st victory on the season, the game's big story was Adam Greenberg.

The pinch-hitter was given a one-day contract by the Marlins after a seven-year absence from the game. Greenberg was famously hit in the head by the one major league pitch he ever faced in 2005. Dickey struck out Greenberg in his lone at-bat on the night.

Both teams close out their season tomorrow in a mid-afternoon showdown in Miami.
