Dickey shaves ERA without pitching

R.A. Dickey's ERA has dipped from 3.98 to 3.76 before he even took the mound Thursday. That's because a Major League Baseball committee ruled that Daniel Murphy ought to have been charged with an error in Pittsburgh on Andrew McCutchen's grounder. As a result of the overruling of the official scorer, two earned runs become unearned and McCutchen gets stripped of two RBIs as well as a double.
