Mets Vs. Cardinals: R.A. Dickey Throws Shutout, Mets Win 5-0

It wasn't quite the performance of Johan Santana, who threw the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets on Friday night, but Saturday afternoon's starter, R.A. Dickey, pitched quite the gem, himself.

Dicky, who has been surprisingly great in 2012, threw his first complete game shutout of the season. He went nine innings, 100 pitches, allowed seven hits, no walks, and fanned nine St. Louis Cardinals. The performance drops Dickey's ERA to 2.69 on the season and he's now 8-1 in decisions.

The Mets were able to tag the Cardinals pitching staff for five runs (four earned). David Wright hit a solo shot in the eighth inning, to provide extra insurance for Dickey. It was his sixth homer of the season.
