NEW YORK (AP) – R.A. Dickey flustered the Houston Astros with knuckleballs and foiled them with his bat, leading the New York Mets to a 5-1 victory Sunday.
Josh Thole homered and Dickey keyed a second-inning rally with a two-run single that helped the Mets end Bud Norris’ four-game winning streak. New York took two of three from the Astros and hasn’t lost a series at home to Houston since 2002.
Luis Castillo added an RBI single and the Mets went 4-3 against the Astros the past two weeks in a season series marked by some strikingly inept offense on both sides.
Dickey (9-5) yielded six hits in seven-plus innings and had a pair of singles at the plate to aid his own cause.
