New York Mets pitcher, R.A. Dickey has become the first Major League Baseball pitcher to throw back to back one-hitters since Dave Stieb of the Toronto Blue Jays in 1988.
Dickey gave Wilson Betemit a fifth-inning single then striking out a career-high 13 batters in the Mets' 5-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
'I'm just working in the moment,' Dickey said to media in the clubhouse. 'I don't really feel much more comfortable than the last several years. I don't know how to explain it.'
Dickey has an 11-1 record with a 2.00 earned run average for the season. He's first in the major leagues in wins and has not allowed an earned run in his recent 42 2/3 innings.
In his last 6 starting games, Dickey is 6-0 with a 0.18 ERA and has 63 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings with five walks.
'It's been ridiculous,' said Mets first baseman Ike Davis, whose sixth-inning grand slam snapped a scoreless tie. 'I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. It's nasty, man. I'm glad he's on our team.'
Since 1944, Dickey is the first National League pitcher with one hit in consecutive starts when Jim Tobin pitched a one-hitter and a no-hitter while on the Boston Braves.
