R. A. Dickey SP TOR 6 Days

Dickey gave up three runs -- one of them earned -- on five hits over six innings while striking out six and walking two in a no-decision against the visiting Red Sox.

The 39-year-old knuckleballer was let off the hook on what would have been his 13th loss of the season by Jose Bautista, who went yard in the seventh to tie the game 4-4. It will be interesting to see how Dickey performs in the season's final month -- especially if the Jays play themselves out of the playoff hunt completely -- and if he can finish above .500 for the fifth time in his 12-year career. For now, his ERA sits at 4.00 to go with a 1.31 WHIP and 147 strikeouts in 175.2 innings (28 starts) this season.

Dickey struck out four and walked one while giving up five runs on eight hits over 5.2 innings in a winning effort Wednesday.

The Toronto offense put up a five-run sixth inning, enabling Dickey to earn the victory on a day where he wasn't particularly tough to hit. The five-run outing nudged his ERA back above 4.00 for the season (4.08), but the victory was his 10th of the year, and third since the All-Star break.

Dickey served up a two-run homer in the first inning of Wednesday's loss to the Mariners, but was otherwise effective, shutting the opposition out over his final five frames.

Dickey was rather shaky in allowing seven hits and walking four, but aside from Kendrys Morales' long ball, he was otherwise able to steer clear of damage, stranding at least two runners on three separate occasions. However, his offense wasn't able to drum up any run support against Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma, resulting in Dickey's season record dropping to 9-12.

Dickey pitched well in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday night, allowing two runs on five hits, walking four and striking out six over six innings.

His command wasn't as sharp as he would like, needing 101 pitches (63 for strikes) to cover the six innings, but he avoided his season-long nemesis by keeping the ball in the park all night. He left in line for a win, but the usually reliable Casey Janssen struggled and surrendered the Jays lead in the ninth. Dickey (9-11, 3.99 ERA) will face the Mariners in Seattle next time out.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced that R.A. Dickey will start the finale of the season's first half on Sunday against the Rays.

Dickey will be working on his regular rest. That means J.A. Happ will have his next start pushed back until after the Mid-Summer Classic. Dickey has been much improved in recent weeks, posting a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 38/15 K/BB ratio over his last seven starts.

R.A. Dickey blanked the Angels for seven innings, scattering four hits, in a 4-0 win on Tuesday.

Dickey punched out five and walked one. The right-handed knuckleballer left his most nimble offerings back in New York, and has reverted to being a solid innings eater. That doesn't mean that he isn't capable of stretches of excellence, however. He's posted a 3.15 ERA over his last six outings, though he's only 1-4 during that stretch, including tonight's win. Dickey ends the first half 7-8 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.32 WHIP.
