4* NL Game of the Night on Mets -111
The Mets have never lost to the Reds with R.A. Dickey on the mound. They are 2-0 in his 2 career starts against them, and I expect this trend to continue.
Dickey, who has been through a lot in his life, is pitching for a Cy Young Award, and he certainly gives the Mets an edge tonight. They are 17-6 in his starts this season, during which he has posted a sterling ERA of 2.62. He has been as good as ever recently, entering with an ERA of 1.17 over his last 3 starts. The same can't be said about Cincy's Mike Leake, who has an ERA of 7.90 over his last 3 starts and an ERA of 6.03 at home on the season. Bet the Mets.
