Dickey laments what might have been
HOUSTON -- Starter R.A. Dickey will have other games. But the right-handed knuckleballer couldn't help but think of what might have been Monday night.

Dickey took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of Monday's 4-3 loss to the Astros and said he felt good enough to accomplish something special, or at least get his team into the latter innings.

"I thought it was going to be a 1-0 kind of game," said Dickey, who went six innings and got a no-decision. "I bent before [Astros starter Bud Norris] did. Fortunately we did get some runs off him and we had a chance to win the game late.

"But I had no business not going into the eighth or ninth with the stuff I had [Monday night]. It was just unfortunate that I gave up some runs and had to come out of the game, because I was only at [77] pitches and I felt fantastic."
