If Mlb changes B.J. Upton’s first-inning single for an error on David Wright, it might give Dickey a no-hitter retroactively. But even manager Terry Collins, who started the appeal, stated it's highly prone to fail.
“We’re just going for a stab,” Collins stated. “What the hell? Exactly what do we must lose? Nothing. We won the overall game. R.A. pitched an excellent game. Your debt it to yourself.”
Dickey permitted only an unearned run throughout an entire-game, one-hitter within the 9-1 victory at Tropicana Area. Upton’s hit came on the high chopper lower the 3rd-base line. Wright attempted to snag it together with his bare hands but couldn’t area it cleanly.
On Thursday morning, Wright maintained that due to Upton’s speed, he was without time for you to area the ball together with his glove and throw to first.
“If they would like to produce a mistake, they are able to produce a mistake, but it’s a really difficult play,” Wright stated. “I feel terrible that that’s the main one hit, however i did things i could do.”
The appeal put Wright within an unusual position. The Mets are basically lobbying with an error billed to 1 of the star gamers.
“I guess it is not a perfect situation, but that’s their decision,” Wright stated. “It’s just a little awkward once the team wants a mistake by itself player.”
Even Dickey appeared conflicted concerning the appeal. He joked when the hit were transformed for an error, the Mets would stage a mock no-hitter celebration Friday mid-day at Citi Area. But that will hardly be as satisfying as honoring around the mound in fact.
“A a part of me want a no-hitter,” Dickey stated. “Regardless of methods you receive it, it’s still a no-hitter. Along with a part of me thinks it might be cheap.”
Collins stated he needs Major league baseball to rule around the appeal by Friday. If authorities ruled within the Mets’ favor, it might provide the team its second no-hitter this month. On June 1, Johan Santana held St. Louis hitless - the Mets’ first no-hitter within their 51-year history.
