Dickey Leaves With Soreness As Jays Beat White Sox

TORONTO (AP) -- Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey threw six shutout innings before leaving with soreness in his neck and back, Rajai Davis had two hits and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Thursday.

Dickey (2-2) allowed two hits, both singles. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner, walked one, struck out a season-high seven and lowered his ERA from 5.82 to 4.30.

Dickey retired the first 11 White Sox batters before Alex Rios hit a two-out single to center in the fourth. Rios went to second on a wild pitch and Paul Konerko walked, but Adam Dunn struck out to end the inning.

Blue Jays trainer George Poulis and manager John Gibbons came to the mound after Dickey struck out Dewayne Wise for the second out of the sixth. After a brief discussion, Dickey remained in the game, getting Jeff Keppinger to fly out to left.

Dickey appeared to be rubbing his upper back as he left the dugout and walked to the clubhouse at the end of the inning.
