R.A. Dickey picked up his major league leading tenth win with his latest gem on Wednesday night, a complete game one-hitter, with a career best 12 strikeouts while setting a franchise record for scoreless innings.

It took an error and two passed-balls for the Rays to finally break Dickey’s streak of 32.2 scoreless innings but Tampa did push across a run in the bottom of the ninth in the Mets’ 9-1 victory, grabbing the first two-games of the series after being swept by the Yankees.

The Mets mashed 14-hits for the second game in a row, including nine hits and seven runs off of David Price (8-4) – easily his worst outing of the season.

David Wright, Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis, Andres Torres and Vinny Rottino accounted for five Mets doubles on the night, and Jason Bay’s single in the sixth inning was his first since coming off the DL, snapping an 0-17 drought.

Wright, Murphy and Omar Quintanilla each drove in a pair.

The only hit off Dickey came in the first inning, a B.J. Upton bleeding ground ball toward third that Wright was unable to bare-hand.

In the ninth, Wright’s throwing error allowed Elliot Johnson to reach base. He advanced to third on a pair of Mike Nickeas passed balls, and scored on Jennings’ ground out to shortstop.

Dickey is 5-0 in his last five starts, allowing just one earned run over 38.2 innings, with 50 strikeouts and four walks – that’s a 0.23 ERA and a Ks/BBs ratio of 12.5/1
