Mets’ R.A. Dickey Allows First Earned Runs in 44 2/3 Innings

June 24, 2012

New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey gave up four runs in the third inning of tonight’s game against the New York Yankees, halting his streak of 44 2/3 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run.

Dickey, who entered the game with an 11-1 record and a 2.00 earned run average, gave up a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to Mark Teixeira and then surrendered a three-run home run to Nick Swisher as the Yankees opened a 4-0 lead.

Dickey had gone 6-0 with a 0.18 ERA over his previous six starts and was coming off consecutive 1-hitters, the first Major League Baseball pitcher to do so since Toronto’s Dave Stieb in 1988.
