Simon: Dickey's Really Amazin' season, win by win

From SABR member Mark Simon at ESPN.com on September 27, 2012:

Win by win through R.A. Dickey's 2012 season:

No. 1, on April 7: Mets 4, Braves 2
There weren't necessarily any signs that this was going to be a special year for Dickey, who allowed two runs in six innings.

Stat of the game: The gave Dickey as many wins as he had in April 2011.

No. 2, on April 13: Mets 5, Phillies 2

Dickey struck out seven, allowed one run and nine scattered hits in seven innings. It was his 14th straight quality start, giving him the longest streak in the majors. That streak would end in his next start, a loss to the Braves.

Elias stat of the game: This was the fifth straight double-digit strikeout game for Mets pitchers, their longest streak since April 1990, when they had six straight.
