Astros Vs. Mets Final Score: R.A. Dickey Silences Houston's Bats As New York Wins 3-1

The Houston Astros were shut down by R.A. Dickey in a 3-1 loss to the New York Mets on Saturday afternoon at Citi Field.

The Astros were unable to build on their win in Game 1 of the series as the offense struggled to do anything against Dickey, coming up with just five singles off of the polarizing knuckleballer, who allowed one run in seven innings while striking out two and walking one. Houston reliever Mickey Storey took the loss, as he allowed the Mets to score the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth inning on a Justin Turner solo home run.

Fernando Abad started for the Astros, but was removed in the top of the fifth inning as the Astros had the bases loaded and needed a legitimate chance to capitalize. Steve Pearce, who is the subject of some trade rumors, pinch-hit for Abad and grounded into a double play, ending the Astros' only real threat of the day.

The rubber matchup takes place on Sunday at 12:10 p.m. CT from Citi Field. Lucas Harrell (10-9, 4.04 ERA) will be on the hill for the Astros while the Mets will send out Jeremy Hefner (2-5, 5.11).
