Major League Baseball denied the New York Mets' request to wear NYPD and FDNY caps during their 11-inning, 10-6 loss to the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field on Sunday (as the team had on Sept. 21, 2001, in the first game in New York after the 9/11 terror attacks). Some of the Mets wore the caps for BP, and player rep Josh Thole said they thought of ignoring the MLB directive, but decided against it. Certainly, the 24-minute ceremony before the game was fitting, but the players had a point: it's in the smaller acts that we show powerfully that violence can never win.   Pushing the Papi button Boston lost, 9-1, to Tampa Bay on Sunday to the Rays just 31/2 games back of the Red Sox in the wild-card race.

NEW YORK - R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays agreed to a new contract Monday, clearing the way for the New York Mets to trade the NL Cy Young winner to a Toronto team that's spending a lot of money trying to join baseball's elite. A person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press the trade could be completed once the 38-year-old knuckleballer passes a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team made an announcement. The Mets would receive top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud as the centerpiece of the multiplayer swap.

CHRIS CAPUANO pitched the game of his life, tossing a two-hitter and striking out a career-high 13 as the New York Mets beat the visiting Atlanta Braves, 6-0, last night, in their final matchup before taking a break because of Hurricane Irene. New flood gates were put in place outside Citi Field as a precaution, but Major League Baseball took no chances. The Braves-Mets games today and tomorrow were postponed, to be made up as a doubleheader on Sept. 8. The shutdown comes right after the Mets, at last, won the opener of a homestand.

Carlos Gonzalez singled home the winning run off Eric O'Flaherty with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 3-2 win over the visiting Atlanta Braves last night. O'Flaherty (1-3) retired his first two batters before third baseman Martin Prado let Dexter Fowler's ground ball go through his legs for a two-base error. Pinch-hitter Ty Wigginton drew an intentional walk, bringing up Gonzalez, who slapped the first pitch he saw into rightfield, scoring Fowler from second.

Josh Thole had three RBI, including a two-run double that put the Mets ahead run in the sixth inning, and New York ran its winning streak to five games last night with a 6-4 win over the host Washington Nationals. Thole's double to the corner was just beyond the reach of leftfielder Michael Morse and brought home Jason Bay and Ike Davis, breaking a 3-3 tie. The hit came off lefty Doug Slaten, who entered to face Thole. Ryota Igarashi (1-0) struck out Jayson Werth to end the fifth inning.

New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda will miss the entire 2012 season because of a right shoulder anterior labral tear, the team announced Wednesday. He will have surgery May 1. It is yet another setback for the 23-year-old righthander the Yankees acquired from Seattle in exchange for blue-chip hitting prospect Jesus Montero. As a rookie last season, Pineda went 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA, recording 173 strikes in 171 innings and was named to the all-star team. Pineda, after arriving for spring training 20 pounds overweight, started the regular season on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis.

NEW YORK - Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in New York Mets' history Friday night, helped by an umpire's missed call and an outstanding catch in left field in an 8-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. After a string of close calls in their 51-season history, Santana finally finished the job in the Mets' 8,020th game since the team was born in 1962. "Finally, the first one," Santana said. "That is the greatest feeling ever. " He needed a couple of key assists to pull off the majors' third no-hitter this season.

FOR JUSTIN Turner and the New York Mets, this was a true walk-off win. Turner drew a bases-loaded walk in a sensational 13-pitch at-bat and Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit an RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning as the Mets rallied past Heath Bell and the Miami Marlins, 3-2, Thursday. Pitching for the first time in a week, and working in a steady drizzle, Bell (0-3) couldn't find the plate and sent the Marlins to their fifth straight loss. The All-Star closer walked four and threw a whopping 46 pitches.
