Dickson makes tidy debut in major leagues

Marbury's Brandon Dickson included a lot of zeroes with his major league debut Saturday.

Dickson threw 1 2/3 no-hit innings and retired all four hitters he faced -- a double play factored in -- for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 5-1 loss at the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dickson hit the mound with none out and two runners on base in the seventh inning. Ben Zobrist flied out and former Biscuit Evan Longoria grounded into a double play. In the eighth, Dickson recorded two flyouts and one groundout.

The 26-year-old, who was promoted from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, threw 13 pitches, six for strikes.
