Word out of New York is the Mets appeal to have B.J. Upton’s infield hit to third base during the first inning of Wednesday’s game changed to an error has been denied.

ESPN’s Buster Olney, citing a source, tweeted that it was overturned.

Also, Anthony DiComo, who covers the Mets for tweeted the same news.

So R.A. Dickey, who certainly had no-hit stuff Wednesday when he held the Rays to one hit in a 9-1 victory, will have to be satisfied with a one-hitter.

Dickey, who won his 10th game of the season that night, came within two ground balls to third base of throwing a perfect game. One was an infield hit in the first inning, the other was an E5 in the ninth.
