R.A. Dickey's Appeal Denied, One-Hitter Stands

On Wednesday night, R.A. Dickey continued his magical run of knuckler-dancing nonsense, throwing a complete-game one-hitter against the Rays. That one hit? An ambiguous one:


Could have been an error. The Mets argued that it should have been an error. So they appealed. It was worth a shot. It's not like the Mets are running out of challenge flags.

But, as expected, the appeal was denied.

It would have been an amazing, spectacular firestorm of debate and controversy if MLB had changed the official scorer's ruling. But it also would have been quite silly. It's easy to argue either side of the error/hit controversy, which means there was no chance it was going to be overturned.

Dickey's scoreless streak -- 32 innings and counting -- is still intact, though.
