MLB: New York Mets 5, Baltimore 0

NEW YORK, June 18 (UPI) -- R.A. Dickey twirled a one-hit shutout and Ike Davis pounded a grand slam Monday in the New York Mets' 5-0 interleague victory over Baltimore.

Dickey (11-1) became the first major league pitcher to reach 11 wins as he hurled his second one-hit, complete-game victory in a row -- the first pitcher to do so since Toronto's Dave Stieb in 1988.

The 37-year-old knuckleballer struck out 13 and allowed only Wilson Betemit's fifth inning single in dominating the Orioles, issuing two walks while lowering his ERA to a major league-best 2.00.

Davis broke a scoreless tie with his first career bases-loaded shot in the sixth inning for the Mets, who took the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

O's starter Jake Arrieta (3-9) was tagged with the loss, yielding four runs on six hits.

Second-place Baltimore fell 2 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees in the American League East with the loss and the Yankees' defeat of Atlanta.
