St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - R.A. Dickey fired a two-hit shutout to get the Toronto Blue Jays back on track with a 3-0 triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays in a game marked by Jose Reyes' comeback from an absence of more than two months. Reyes went 0-for-4 in his first game back from a severe ankle sprain the dynamic shortstop sustained back on April 12, but the Blue Jays received solo home runs from Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion to bounce back from two straight losses to the Rays in which the club managed just a pair of runs. Dickey (7-8) didn't need much support, with the veteran knuckleball specialist carrying a perfect game into the fifth inning and permitting just three baserunners in notching his sixth career shutout and first as a member of the Jays. Counterpart Roberto Hernandez (4-9) put forth a strong effort as well on the mound, but served up both Toronto homers and allowed all three runs on six hits over eight-plus innings of work. Melky Cabrera added an RBI single for Toronto, which had matched a franchise record by ripping off 11 consecutive victories heading into the series. The Rays had a three-game win streak halted.
