|Dickey Shuts Out Cardinals as Mets Win
|NEW YORK (AP) -- R.A. Dickey followed up Johan Santana's no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis, David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0 on Saturday.
Dickey (8-1) gave up seven hits, struck out nine and walked none in his third career shutout -- first this season. The Mets scored three runs in the second, on a mishandled grounder and two run-scoring groundouts to win for the sixth time in eight games.
Carlos Beltran had a clean double against Dickey in the second inning -- a day after he hit a shot down the line that looked fair but was ruled foul against Santana. The Cardinals have lost four straight and seven of nine.
