TORONTO – R.A. Dickey said it best after Casey Janssens disastrous ninth inning coughed up a 4-2 lead and sent the Blue Jays to their sixth loss in seven games, a 5-4 defeat to the Tigers. "They all hurt," said Dickey, who stood to win after tossing six innings of two-run ball. "From here on in it all matters. It mattered back in May when we were losing a game or winning a game. It matters. It always matters." Yes, all losses hurt and its understood there will be plenty of them over the course of a long, 162-game season. Some will hurt more than others and it has to do with a combination of timing and circumstances. First, the timing: the Blue Jays are about to embark on a stretch of three games in which they will face the last three American League Cy Young award winners. It happens theyll face the three pitchers in order, starting with the most recent. Max Scherzer, last seasons winner, hurls on Saturday. David Price, acquired from Tampa Bay on July 31, was voted the ALs best pitcher in 2012. A road trip begins in Seattle on Monday against the 2011 winner, the man known as "King" and who has a court of yellow-shirted minions down Safeco Fields leftfield line, Felix Hernandez. "Thats a tough one," said manager John Gibbons. "Theres no question. Thats a tough one." The Blue Jays are looking up at the Yankees and the Royals and maybe the Mariners, pending Seattles late result on Friday, in the race for the second wild card spot. Its available to any of the above-mentioned teams and more. Its important for Toronto not to allow too many clubs in-between; that creates increased difficulty in nailing down that playoff spot. Dont worry about the Orioles for the moment. They were busy blasting the Cardinals all over Baltimore to stretch their lead in the American League East to six over the now-third place Blue Jays. Janssen was hit hard. J.D. Martinez lined a shot to the left-centre field gap to start the ninth. One out later, with Martinez on third, Nick Castellanos caught a hanging breaking ball and deposited it over the left field wall to tie the score. Next up, shortstop Eugenio Suarez belted a go-ahead homer off the facing of the batters eye in dead centre field. Janssen was pulled one out later after allowing an Ian Kinsler double. Three runs on four extra-base hits in two-thirds of an inning. The crowd, and Janssen, was stunned. "My arm felt great," said Janssen. "I felt great and you know what? They beat me." Janssen has pitched to a 9.72 ERA since the All-Star Break. Hes long since over a virus, perhaps food poisoning, he contracted during a vacation to the Dominican Republic. Still, he hasnt been the same. "I havent pitched that great," said Janssen. "Sometimes things can be streaky. Right now it doesnt seem like its streaking in the right direction for me but Ive just got to continue to work, to continue to execute pitches and maybe at times mix up what Ive been doing. The hitters might be adjusting to me so now its my turn to adjust to them. Im not quitting and weve got a long ways to go." Theres a lot of baseball left to be played. Why not start with three games against three of the sports best pitchers? Johnny Gaudreau Jersey .

Dickey. Four scoreless innings, a 0-0 tie, only to have things come undone in the fifth. Last week in a loss to Houston, it was a Robbie Grossman fifth inning home run that broke the goose egg. Thursday afternoon, ultimately a 7-0 loss to Minnesota, it was a one-out single by Brian Dozier which led to six-straight Twins reaching base (five hits, one walk), five of whom scored to prematurely end Dickeys day. He teetered throughout, pitching out of jams in the first and fourth, before the dam burst. "I would get count and then really try to finish guys and they would do a good job of laying off really good pitches," said Dickey. "I thought I got squeezed there a couple of pitches but outside of that it was one of those days where youre just not putting the whole game together." Most troubling is the walk total. Dickey issued five more free passes, bringing his season total to 15 in 23 innings, second-most in all of baseball behind Philadelphias A.J. Burnett. "Its certainly moving better at this point, believe it or not, than it was last year," said Dickey. "I feel like over the course of the season, like Ive got 190 innings left, so I truly believe all the peripheral numbers are going to even out." "I mean its pretty amazing you keep that thing in the zone, period," said manager John Gibbons. "He battles that. Thats a lot for him and hell cut down on those, Ive got no doubt about that but you think about it, to be able to throw that thing in the strike zone is pretty tough as it is. But theres no question thats been hurting him." Dickey admitted to being miffed with home plate umpire Chris Gucciones strike zone. At times he was the beneficiary, most notably on a full count, called third strike on Minnesotas Chris Colabello in the first, which stranded a runner at third base. He thought he had Jason Kubel struck out twice in the fifth, got neither call, and Kubel singled home Minnesotas second run.dddddddddddd. "Im letting some external something impact the inning," said Dickey. "Whether its a ball that I thought should have been a strike or a ball that gets through a hole but were fortunate the other guys are going well. This wont remain this way. Its just tough to weather." Gibbons tried to let Dickey work out of the fifth but after the Kubel single, Josmil Pinto cracked a double off the wall in left-centre that scored two. "Dickeys our guy, its early," said Gibbons. "Hes here to get out of those innings and win games." "I really respect that," said Dickey. "Im appreciative of the opportunity to let me get through the fifth there. I take great pride in trying to go at least six innings in every start and so far this year in two of my four I havent been able to do that and hes given me every opportunity. As the season progresses those decisions, Ill make those pay off for him." Dickey threw a higher number of fastballs than usual. According to BrooksBaseball.net, 25 of his 112 pitches were fastballs, which he didnt attribute the cool conditions - the temperature was zero Celsius at first pitch. "It wasnt ideal but it wasnt something where I was coming in trying to soak my fingers in warm water to try to keep them warm," said Dickey. "I just didnt execute when I needed to make a big pitch and they put good swings on it." "I think it was just trying to balance the velocity of the knuckleball with the fastball so youre trying to throw a few more mid-count fastballs just to try to get them off of (the knuckleball,)" said catcher Josh Thole. Dickeys ERA ballooned from 5.30 to 6.26 in the loss. He dropped to 1-3 on the season, a decision in each start, each decision accurately reflecting the quality of his outing. The Jays starting staff, combined, has a 4.06 ERA through 15 games. Subtract Dickeys 16 earned runs allowed and his 23 innings pitched, the ERA drops to 3.20. "Im traditionally a slow starter and hopefully I can get back on track next time," said Dickey.
