Mets' Dickey grabs 20th career win

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.
