NEW YORK (CBSMiami/AP) – The Miami Marlins had the chance to sweep the New York Mets and have shortstop Jose Reyes extend his hitting streak to 27 games. Unfortunately, neither one of those came true Thursday.

The Marlins pitching staff gave up 13 hits and 6 runs in a losing effort to the Mets, 6-1. Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey led the team to the victory throwing a complete game one-run, five-hit game.

The victory moved Dickey to 15-3 on the season and the knuckleballer looks like he could be heading towards competing for the Cy Young award as the season goes on.

Reyes went 0 for 4 against the All-Star knuckleballer, twice stranding runners on third base. His hitting streak was the longest of his career and the best in the majors this season.

Andres Torres homered, tripled and doubled, and drove in the go-ahead run after Reyes lost a popup in the sun.
