NEW YORK (AP) - Johan Santana pitched six sharp innings, Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, and the New York Mets beat Baltimore 5-0 on Tuesday night for their second straight shutout of the Orioles.

Santana followed R.A. Dickey's second one-hitter in a row with his best outing since he tossed a no-hitter on June 1. Jordany Valdespin added a two-run single for New York, which won by the same score Monday night in the series opener - a rematch of the 1969 World Series won by the Miracle Mets.

It was the second time this month that Santana and Dickey have thrown back-to-back shutouts. Dickey followed Santana's no-hitter against St. Louis by blanking the Cardinals. The two then flip-flopped in the rotation to give Santana extra rest after he threw a career-high 134 pitchers in the franchise's first no-hitter.
