Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey continued his red hot streak in a win over the Orioles on Monday night. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years to throw back to back one hitters while striking out a career high 13 batters in his second straight complete game performance. Ike Davis broke a scoreless tie in the sixth with his seventh home run of the season, a grand slam to center off Jake Arrieta. The Baltimore starter struck out four over seven innings but the real story was Dickey, whose dream season continued while becoming the first 11 game winner in the big leagues and lowering his ERA to 2.00 after the Mets' 5-0 shutout of the Orioles.
