Mets' Dickey has RBI in 16th win

R.A. Dickey helped his own cause in winning his 16th game, driving in a run with an infield single and pitching seven solid innings Saturday as the New York Mets ended a six-game skid by beating the Houston Astros 3-1.

Justin Turner hit his first homer of the season and Jason Bay snapped an 0-for-14 slump with an RBI single in the eighth to end a stretch of offensive futility for the Mets. New York went seven straight games without scoring more than two runs for the first time since September 1982.

Dickey (16-4) again showed why he has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, tying the NL's Gio Gonzalez and Johnny Cueto and the AL's Jered Weaver and David Price for the major league lead.
