Mets to appeal to MLB for another no-hitter

BY foxsports • June 14, 2012

Less than two weeks after tossing their first no-hitter, the New York Mets plan to appeal to Major League Baseball for another one.

R.A. Dickey allowed only an infield single Wednesday night in a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and Mets manager Terry Collins says the team will ask the commissioner's office to overturn the official scorer's decision on B.J. Upton's hit.

The speedy Upton hit a high bouncer in the first inning that third baseman David Wright was unable to field with his bare hand. The play was ruled a hit, but the Mets wonder if it should have been called an error on Wright. Collins conceded the appeal probably won't change the result.
