MLB: New York Mets 9, Tampa Bay 1

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 13 (UPI) -- R.A. Dickey gave up an infield single before retiring 22 straight batters Wednesday and went the distance in the New York Mets' 9-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Dickey (10-1) won his ninth straight decision and became the first pitcher in the majors this year to reach 10 victories. He surrendered a two-out, infield single to B.J. Upton in the first inning and no other Tampa Bay batter reached base after that until Elliot Johnson was safe at first on a throwing error by third baseman David Wright leading off the ninth.

A pair of passed balls charged to Mike Nickeas put Johnson on third and he scored the Rays' only run on a groundout.

The one-hitter turned out to be the second complete game of the year for Wright and the sixth of his 10-year career. He struck out 12 and did not allow a walk.

Daniel Murphy, Omar Quintanilla and Wright all had two RBI as part of a 14-hit New York onslaught.

David Price (8-4) suffered the loss while giving up seven runs on nine hits in five innings.
