Who was more dominant, Santana or Dickey?
R.A. Dickey’s one-hitter Wednesday was such a brilliant performance that it begs the question: which was the more dominant performance, Dickey’s one-hitter or Johan Santana’s no-no (the first in Mets history) 12 days earlier? Here are the relevant stats:
Santana vs. STL, 6/1: 9.0 IP, 0 H, o R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 8 K, Game Score of 90
The story: Santana appeared to allow his only hit on Carlos Beltran’s shot down the left field line, but umpire Adrian Johnson ruled it foul.
Dickey @ TB, 6/13: 9.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 12 K, Game Score of 95
The story: The only hit off Dickey came on a slow roller to third base that David Wright could not handle. The Mets plan to appeal the ruling.
So which was more dominant? You decide.
