R.A. Dickey continues his unlikely rise to fame

“At one point in his career, Dickey, 35, started just one big-league game in two seasons (2006-2007). But here, Dickey — who once tied the major-league record of allowing six homers in a game — has taken his new lease on life and run with it. Dickey is the first Mets pitcher to go 6-0 in his first seven starts with the team. Prior to this season, Dickey struck out six or more batters eight times in 144 games. This season, he has at least six strikeouts in three of his seven starts. “I think I can make adjustments a lot more easily now than I ever have before,” Dickey said.” [ESPN NY]
