NEW YORK -- R.A. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the New York Mets past the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Monday night.
Coming off a one-hit gem at Tampa Bay last Wednesday, the knuckleballer struck out a career-high 13 and allowed only Wilson Betemit's clean single in the fifth inning.
The previous pitcher to throw consecutive one-hitters was Dave Stieb for Toronto in September 1988, according to STATS LLC. The Mets said the last to do it in the National League was Jim Tobin with the Boston Braves in 1944, according to research by the Elias Sports Bureau.
The 37-year-old Dickey (11-1) walked two and became the first 11-game winner in the majors.
YANKEES 6, BRAVES 2
The team with the AL's best record kept rampaging in interleague play -- all 10 of these triumphs have come against NL teams with winning records, including a sweep at Turner Field last week.
Michael Bourn led off the game with a triple and scored when Martin Prado followed with a groundout, ending Atlanta's 20-inning shutout string. But the Braves' first game at the new Yankee Stadium and first trip to the Bronx since 2006 still resulted in their seventh loss in eight tries.
Mike Minor (3-5) took the loss.
INDIANS 10, REDS 9
Chisenhall and Kotchman hit two-run homers, and both drove in runs in the sixth inning off Sam LeCure (2-2) as Cleveland snapped a 7-7 tie.
Shin-Soo Choo homered for the Indians.
Bruce and Brandon Phillips had three hits each for Cincinnati.
BREWERS 7, BLUE JAYS 6
MILWAUKEE -- Aramis Ramirez's liner down the left-field line was ruled a home run after umpires reversed a foul ball call using video replay in the seventh inning that snapped a tie and lifted the Brewers to a victory over the Blue Jays.
Ramirez hit a 1-2 pitch off rookie Robert Coello (0-1) that hit the outside corner of a yellow pad below the foul pole. Third base umpire Paul Nauert ruled it a foul ball. He agreed to check video replay after discussing the play with Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke and third base coach Ed Sedar while watching a fan dramatically pound the pad in question.
Umpires spent about 90 seconds checking the replay, before returning and signaling a home run for Ramirez, his eighth of the year.
CUBS 12, WHITE SOX 3
With winds gusting to 41 mph the Cubs had season highs of five home runs, 15 hits and 12 runs.
Zack Stewart (1-2) was tagged for six runs and nine hits, including four homers, over 5 2-3 innings.
ASTROS 9, ROYALS 7
J.A. Happ (5-7) yielded four hits and two runs in 6-plus innings to break a four-game losing streak. It was his first start since allowing 11 hits and eight runs -- both career highs -- in Houston's 10-0 loss to San Francisco in which Matt Cain threw a perfect game.
Maxwell hit a two-run homer after Bogusevic's solo shot in Houston's five-run eighth inning.
Jonathan Sanchez (1-3) allowed six hits and four runs in six innings in his second start since a month-long stint on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left biceps.
