Dickey himself said the idea of overruling the original call to give him a no-hitter “would be weird” and “would be a little bit cheap.” He also correctly noted that the entire scope of the game and the amount of pressure on him would have changed, making an after-the-fact switch problematic on several levels.
And apparently MLB agreed. Or maybe they just thought Upton’s hit was actually a hit. Either way Dickey officially threw a one-hitter, improving to 10-1 with a 2.20 ERA, and Johan Santana‘s no-hitter two weeks ago remains the only one in Mets history.
