R.A. Dickey returns to the mound Friday night as the New York Mets visit the Los Angeles Dodgers in search of their third straight win. (Game Time: 10:10 p.m. ET, TV Schedule: SNY)
Dickey hasn't lost since April 18, going 9-0 with a 1.64 ERA during his 12 starts since then. The knuckleballer had a 44 2/3-inning scoreless streak snapped in his last start, a no-decision, surrendering five runs to the New York Yankees.
The Dodgers have lost five straight, the most recent defeat coming Thursday night when the Mets rode David Wright's two-RBI night to a 3-2 victory. Wright finished 2-for-3 with a home run and an RBI double to help down the Dodgers.
Los Angeles will counter Dickey with Aaron Harang.
