The Mets had asked MLB to reverse a scoring decision on B.J. Upton's first-inning infield single, claiming that third baseman David Wright committed an error on the play.
But Joe Torre, MLB's executive vice president for baseball operations, would not change the official scoring of the play on Friday. It would have given Dickey a no-hitter.
Dickey said he was relieved by the decision. He thought that if it had been reversed, there would be more of a focus on the reversal of the decision than on the actual accomplishment of a no-hitter.
