NEW YORK (AP) - R.A. Dickey followed up Johan Santana's no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis, David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0 on Saturday.

 

Dickey (8-1) gave up seven hits, struck out nine and walked none in his third career shutout - first this season. The Mets scored three runs in the second, on a mishandled grounder and two run-scoring groundouts to win for the sixth time in eight games.

 

Carlos Beltran had a clean double against Dickey in the second inning - a day after he hit a shot down the line that looked fair but was ruled foul against Santana. The Cardinals have lost four straight and seven of nine.
