The New York Yankees ended R.A. Dickey's streak without allowing an earned run at 44 2/3 innings during Sunday's Game 3 of the Subway Series at Citi Field. Mark Teixeira hit a sac fly off the New York Mets starter with the bases loaded in the third inning to score Curtis Granderson.
Dickey struck out Derek Jeter to start the inning. He walked Granderson, however, then gave up an infield single to Alex Rodriguez. Dickey walked Robinson Cano to load the bases, setting up Teixeira.
After Teixeira's at-bat, Nick Swisher stepped up to the plate and banged a three-run home run to center to put the Yankees up 4-0. Swisher has 11 homers on the year.
Dickey has struggled mightily with his command at times. He nearly beaned Rodriguez in the first inning when his normally dependable knuckleball broke much more than expected.
