    Blue Jays Win Home Opener Behind Dickey's One-Hit Gem




    Under a closed roof at the Rogers Center, R.A. Dickey and the Toronto Blue Jays took down the Boston Red Sox in the Jays' home opener by a score of 8-0.

    R.A. Dickey pitched a one-hit gem, surrendering only an infield single to Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia after his ground ball caromed off of Dickey's left foot. That would be one of only two baserunners that the Red Sox would manage to get on base all night, as Dickey's knuckleball was dancing all over the place under the closed roof.


    A dejected R.A. Dickey takes a moment after Dustin Pedroia's grounder deflected off his left foot costing him his no-hit bid.


    In a night where pitching took over the show, the Blue Jays bats were not to be overlooked, as Devon Travis doubled twice in the win. The Blue Jays once again got offensive support from the long ball, as both Kevin Pillar and Russel Martin launched multi-run homers in the win. The aforementioned Pillar and Martin each picked up three RBIs in the win.

    The Blue Jays look to secure a series win tomorrow afternoon against the visiting Red Sox. Marcus Stroman (0-1, 4.50 ERA) takes the hill for the Blue Jays against Red Sox youngster Eduardo Rodriguez, who is making his first start of the season.

    Red Sox Rout Jays With Barrage of Extra-Base Hits


    Xander Bogaerts picked up two RBIs with a double and a two-run bomb on a rainy Saturday evening.


    It got so bad for the Blue Jays that manager John Gibbons opted to use infielder Darwin Barney to pitch instead of burning another reliever in the eighth inning.
