Manager Terry Collins thinks Ruben Tejada is getting worn down, so he started Ronny CedeƱo at shortstop and might do so again from time to time. Tejada entered the game in the seventh and struck out in his only at-bat ... Josh Thole went 0-for-4 and is hitless in his last 25 at-bats ... Mets relievers threw two more scoreless innings to increase their unblemished streak to 15 1/3 innings ... The Mets announced a new four-year working agreement with their Double-A affiliate in Binghamton. They are expected to leave Triple-A Buffalo after this season ... R.A. Dickey will go for his 17th win tonight against the Marlins in Miami. He is 3-0 against them this year.
