MIAMI — Willie Harris and Ike Davis homered, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey picked up where he left off last year and the New York Mets beat the Florida Marlins 9-2 on Sunday to win their season-opening series. 

Dickey (1-0) allowed an unearned run and five hits, struck out seven and walked three. The right-hander went 11-9 with a 2.84 ERA last season with the Mets, easily the best year of his career.

New York jumped all over Javier Vazquez (0-1), who was making his Marlins debut. Jose Reyes led off the game with a double and Harris followed with a drive over the fence in right.

The Mets added another run in the first when shortstop Hanley Ramirez made an errant throw attempting to turn an inning-ending double play.
