NEW YORK - The Mets' R.A. Dickey has become the first knuckleballer to win 20 games in more than three decades.

In New York's last game at Citi Field, Dickey also had a career-high 13 strikeouts, prompting a standing ovation from the crowd of about 30,000 in the eighth inning.

The last team member to earn 20 wins was Frank Viola.
