Wright, Dickey Lead Mets to Win Over Nationals

David Wright homered twice and had five RBIs and R.A. Dickey won his league-leading 13th game and the New York Mets broke a six-game losing streak with a 9-5 win over the Washington Nationals on Thursday.

Dickey (13-1) pitched 7 1-3 innings to break a streak of rare ineffectiveness this season. After throwing consecutive one-hitters last month, Dickey had won just one of four starts — getting no-decisions in three of them. In his past two, he gave up five runs in each game.

Against Washington, he gave up four runs — three earned — and 10 hits. He walked one and struck out five. Dickey has won 11 straight decisions.

The Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman hit a first-inning home run, his 11th, and by the time Washington scored again, the Mets had an eight-run lead.
