Mets News and Notes: Complete Game, Season Worst, Dickey, Lineup Change, Six-Man Rotation, Shoppach, Soccer

Mets News and Notes:

Mike Leake yesterday became the third pitcher to toss a complete game against the Mets this season, joining Toronto's Brandon Morrow and Atlanta's Paul Maholm.

The Mets dropped a season-worst seven games under .500.

The Mets have not been swept in Cincinnati since the season-opening series in 2005, when stopgap closer Braden Looper blew Pedro Martinez's debut with the organization on Opening Day by serving up consecutive ninth-inning homers to Adam Dunn and Joe Randa.

Plate umpire James Hoye, supported by crew chief Jim Joyce, instructed R.A. Dickey to remove a pair a bracelets from the wrist of his glove hand during the second inning of  last night's game. Dickey said the bracelets had been made by his daughters before his offseason climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, and that he had worn the jewelry since January. Trainer Ray Ramirez had to be cut the bracelets because they were homemade and did not have fasteners.

Dickey admitted being angry in the moment, but downplayed the significance on his performance -- even though Terry Collins said pitchers loathe changes to their patterns and suggested it may have affected the knuckleballer.

Joyce told Mark Hale in the Post after Wednesday's game: "You cannot wear anything on either hand, bracelet-type or anything like that." Told Dickey had worn it all season, Joyce added: "Tonight we saw it, this crew saw it, and we just asked him to take it off."

Mets Manager Terry Collins predicted he would go with a different lineup look Thursday, although there is a limit to how much maneuverability the manager has.
