Seattle Mariners Game 77: Mariners 11 Mets 0

R.A Dickey made a phone call to the only other pitcher in baseball who throws the knuckle ball. That pitcher was Tim Wakefield of the Boston Red Sox. Whatever Tim had to say it worked because Dickey threw one heck of a ball game. 7 innings pitched, 6 hits, 0 earned runs, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. He was outstanding. I hope he builds off this start and we can see more of this Dickey than the Dickey we have seen.

The offense certainly showed up for this game. Kenji Johjima and Ibanez both had HR's and even Richie Sexson had a 2 hit night with 3 RBI's.

Now if only our offense could find a way to do this consistently...
