The Mets were able to climb back above .500 with a 2-1 victory last night which saw Johan Santana strike out 11 batters in just six and two third innings.
Josh Johnson struck out nine in the same time frame while only allowing three hits. However, the difference in the game came on a Lucas Duda infield RBI single.
Now, New York hands the ball to R.A. Dickey who is looking to bounce back from a rough outing in Atlanta that saw him get pounded for eight runs and three long balls in just over four innings.
Dickey will be opposed by the newly-acquired Mark Buehrle. The ex-White Sox has pitched well so far to the tune of a 2.66 ERA, despite only having a 1-2 record to show for it.
Buehrle won his last time out, going eight strong innings in a win over the Chicago Cubs.
It will be a good test for the Mets against a pitcher they aren't familiar with.
