Another one-hitter for R.A. Dickey

  • Text size: + -

QUEENS, N.Y. -- Before the 2012 season, Mets pitcher, R.A. Dickey had only thrown one complete game one-hitter over the course of his career.

So far this season, Dickey already has two one-hitters. Monday night, Dickey threw his second consecutive one-hitter. It was also his major league leading 11th victory on the season.

He walked only two batters and struckout a career-high 13 batters. The national league knuckleballer has been red hot lately, earning a win in eight of his last nine starts.

He also hasn't given up a run in his last five starts. A streak that spans over 41 2/3 innings.

If the pitching rotation stays true, Dickey's next start will be on Sunday, June 24th against the New York Yankees at Citi Field.
