Dickey Continues Dominance as Mets Beat Rays

R.A. Dickey allowed only an infield single in his second career one-hitter and broke the New York Mets’ record for consecutive scoreless innings in a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night.

Dickey (10-1) became the first 10-game winner in the major leagues and ran his career-best shutout streak to 32 2-3 innings before allowing an unearned run in the ninth. That topped the previous club mark of 31 2-3 scoreless innings in a row set by Jerry Koosman in 1973.

B.J. Upton’s slow bouncer to third base in the first inning was the lone hit off Dickey, who set a career best with 10 strikeouts and did not walk a batter. The 37-year-old knuckleballer permitted only one other baserunner, on a throwing error by third baseman David Wright in the ninth.
