New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey's stellar performance against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday will remain as a one- hitter.

Major League Baseball denied the Mets' request to have the official scoring changed on B.J. Upton's infield single with two outs in the first inning. Third baseman David Wright was unable to field the high bouncer down the line, and New York was trying to say it was an error.

The 9-1 win nearly resulted in the second no-hitter in Mets franchise history. Johan Santana threw one on June 1 against St. Louis.
