The New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 5-1 last night improving to 10-8 in the process.

R.A.DICULOUS: R.A. Dickey improved to 3-1 on the year, allowing one run on three hits over seven innings.

Dickey retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced — including 10 in-a-row — before Omar Infante ended the streak with a solo home run that landed deep into the second deck in left field giving the Marlins a 1-0 lead.  Gaby Sanchez followed the Infante blast with a double to left before R.A. settled down to retire six straight.

The weather cooperated and I was thankful for that. …We were both throwing strikes and doing what we do best. And, every game is another opportunity to excel at a craft that you really enjoy doing. And so,  the hard thing sometimes is to put bad outings behind you, so it’s nice to have one like this.”

ALL-TIME RBI LEADER: David Wright blasted a go-ahead two-run home run which landed into the new Party City deck in left center field to give the Mets a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish. The two-run bomb pushed Wright passed Darryl Strawberry for the franchise All-Time RBI record with 735.

I think that just kind of growing up and knowing the history of the organization, to have your name mentioned in the same breath with [Darryl} Strawberry and [Mike] Piazza and some of these guys it’s quite an honor.  And, hopefully there’s more to come.”

“That’s pretty special,” manager Terry Collins said, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “That tells you what type of player he’s been, and he’s gonna put that mark out of reach pretty soon, I hope.”

BAXTER, IS THAT YOU? With two-outs and runners on second and third in the bottom of the eighth inning, Mike Baxter was brought in to pinch hit for Scott Hairston.  Baxter promptly delivered a double to left to break the game open and give NY a 5-1 lead.

BREAK OUT THE BROOMS:  The Mets will look to sweep the Marlins tomorrow afternoon at 1:10 pm in Citi Field when they send Jon Niese to the hill to face Ricky Nolasco.
