R.A. Dickey (6-1, 3.45 ERA) will take the mound for the New York Mets on Sunday as they face the San Diego Padres in the fourth game of a four game series. The Mets currently lead the series two games to one. Dickey will look to duplicate his last outing, where he needed only 88 pitches to strike out a career-high 11 batters, and he gave up only one run over seven innings. Dickey is 4-0 in his last six starts, posting a 2.48 ERA. He has to like his chances against the Padres, whose .248 team batting average is the third worst in the league.
The Mets offense will face Edinson Volquez (2-4 3.49 ERA). They'll look to repeat their performance from Saturday, where they hit three home runs, including a grand slam from Mike Nickeas' first career grand slam.
