R.A. Dickey, the New York Mets' 37-year-old knuckleballer, recorded his second consecutive one-hit shutout on Monday.

This hasn't been done since 1988.

Dickey got to the fifth inning on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles before Wilson Betemit singled, but he finished off the game in style—striking out 13 batters and allowing two walks on the day.

Dickey now has a 2.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP on the season with an 11-1 record. He's gone 41.2 innings without giving up an earned run.

Not bad for a guy who has never made the All-Star team.
