SAN FRANCISCO – R.A. Dickey allowed two hits in 8 1-3 innings and sparked a four-run fifth inning with an RBI double that led the Toronto Blue Jays to a 4-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.
Mark DeRosa added a two-run single for Toronto and Adam Lind had three hits for his eighth multihit game in the past 12 contests to help the Blue Jays earn a split of this two-game series.
Barry Zito (4-4) was done in by the one big inning and lost at home for the first time in more than 10 months. The defending World Series champion Giants have lost 11 of 18 games heading into a nine-game road trip.
Dickey (5-7) bounced back from a pair of rough starts in which he allowed six runs each to Baltimore and Atlanta.
