(TORONTO) — Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (8-8) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings of work as the Toronto Blue Jays (41-41) tamed the Detroit Tigers (43-38) by a score of 8-3 in front of a sellout crowd at Rogers Centre on Canada Day Monday.
Shortstop Jose Reyes and first baseman Mark DeRosa did the heavy lifting for the Blue Jays offense, with each hitting a home run. Reyes belted his third homer of the season, a solo shot, in the third inning while DeRosa followed up in the fourth with a three-run bomb for his fifth home run of the year.
The Jays have now won seven straight at home.
