NEW YORK -- The anticipated pitchers' duel between R.A. Dickey and CC Sabathia slowly turned into a humbling outing for both starters, a wild ride full of sloppy defense and exchanged leads. Dickey allowed his first earned runs in a little over a month for the New York Mets, and New York Yankees ace Sabathia was tagged for nine hits. But after allowing their crosstown counterparts to wipe out an early four-run deficit, the Yankees survived for a 6-5 win behind Robinson Cano's eighth-inning home run Sunday night. Cano's solo shot to lead off the eighth against Miguel Batista (1-2) prompted roars from the Yankees' portion of a record Citi Field crowd of 42,364. It also helped the Yankees finish off another Subway Series victory, as they took two of three in Flushing to follow up their sweep in the Bronx earlier this month. Boone Logan (2-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings of hitless relief before David Robertson got the last two outs of the eighth, wiggling out of troubl...

“I definitely believe that Dickey’s success will lead to more interest in the knuckleball by other professional and even amateur pitchers. However, the interest in the pitch may be short-lived if no one out there can teach it. R.A. worked hard to connect with those who could help him develop his knuckleball. Others may not have the same perseverance.:

New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey had a knuckleball get away from him in the first inning, and it almost hit New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez in the head. However, it was obvious to everyone that it was just an accidental wild pitch, and Dickey was immediately apologetic afterwards.
A-Rod ended up on the ground while ducking the pitch, but was smiling and laughing...
Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey had two big problems coming into Sunday night's Subway Series finale against the New York Yankees, and both were issues that any pitcher would love to have.
The first was that in going 6-0 in his previous six starts -- with a 0.18 ERA, 0.49 WHIP and .131 opponents' batting average to boot -- the 37-year-old knuckleballer set the bar way too...
Listen up, Met fans -- my presence at Citi Field Friday meant nothing. Your team still beat the Yankees! So there. Now, I am about to head to your ballpark for the battle of the initials -- CC vs. RA -- but if Dickey's scoreless streak ends, don't blame me!I hope it doesn't rain tonight -- Jon and I and 40+ thousand fans had to wait out an hourlong rain delay Friday....
R.A. Dickey scoring the Mets’ second run
The New York Mets lost the last-ever regular season inter league game of this particular variety as Major League Baseball will see a drastic shift next year. The Mets fell by the score of 6-5 as a late inning home run off the bat of Robinson Cano was the difference in the game.
The pitching matchup featured a pair of aces as R.A. Dickey...
Last week we ran a poll asking who would win the National League Cy Young award if the season ended today? Matt Cain or R.A. Dickey? After a record number of votes, 77 percent of you would have voted for Dickey.
I would have voted for Dickey as well, but I was really surprised the voting was that lopsided. Take a look at the Tale of the Tape:
Cain is right there with Dickey...
Well, R.A. Dickey's knuckleballing scoreless inning streak finally came to an end last night. That was fun while it lasted, wasn't it? At least ESPN was able to promote the Subway Series as something that "didn't feel like a regular season game," whatever that means. At least there was a somewhat compelling baseball story not involving Albert Pujols...
R.A. Dickey, interleague play, Kevin Youkilis, the Miami Heat and the BCS.

NEW YORK -- The anticipated pitchers' duel between R.A. Dickey and CC Sabathia slowly turned into a humbling outing for both starters, a wild ride full of sloppy defense and exchanged leads. Dickey, coming off back-to-back one-hitters, allowed his first earned runs in a little over a month for the New York Mets, and New York Yankees ace Sabathia was tagged for nine hits. ...
