SAN DIEGO (AP) _ Carlos Quentin scored the go-ahead run in the
seventh inning when he knocked the ball out of catcher Josh Thole’s
glove, and the San Diego Padres denied R.A. Dickey his 15th victory
with a 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday night.

Clayton Richard (8-11) limited New York to one run and eight
hits in seven-plus innings.

Dickey (14-3) held the Padres to one run and one hit through six
innings before San Diego got to the knuckleballer in the seventh,
scoring two runs in the inning _ one earned.

The Padres managed only four hits but won for the second time in
seven games. Huston Street got the final four outs for his 18th
save in as many chances.

New York, which had won four of five, is 5-4 on its season-high,
11-game West Coast trip.
