Lind, Rasmus HRs push Blue Jays past Rangers 6-1

(Continued)

Those homers accounted for all four runs off Josh Lindblom (0-2), who went six innings on his 26th birthday. The right-hander struck out two in his third start in place of injured Alexi Ogando.

Dickey (6-8) struck out three against the team that took him in the first round of the 1996 draft, and later determined that the right-hander was missing a ligament in his right elbow.

"It's somewhat nostalgic to come back here," said Dickey, who also won his only other start at Rangers Ballpark as an opponent, in 2008 with Seattle. "This is where the discovery about the absence of the ligament was made, this is where I started my knuckleball career. I have a lot of great memories here, and a lot of tough memories here."

Texas, which lost 8-0 on Friday night, ended a 21-inning scoring drought in the sixth. Nelson Cruz and David Murphy had consecutive bloop singles before Chris McGuiness grounded a hit through the right side of the infield. Cruz scored when Leonys Martin beat out a potential inning-ending double-play grounder.

Martin was 3 for 4, getting the RBI on the only at-bat he didn't get a hit.

His fielder's choice ended Dickey's day and the longest scoreless streak by the Rangers since 25 innings in a row without a run in September 2009, also the last time they lost five games in a row at home.

Texas also had the bases loaded in the fourth before McGuiness struck out to end the inning. There were two runners on with no outs in the fifth before Dickey retired the Nos. 2-4 hitters in order.

"We got (Dickey) in trouble a few times. He got out of it," Washington said. "Some of it was him, but most of it was us."

Kinsler, out since May 18 with a ribcage injury, was supposed to stay at Double-A Frisco for at least three games and not expected back before Sunday at the earliest. That changed when after an 11-inning game on Friday night, he declared himself healthy and ready to rejoin the team — even after going 0 for 8 with a walk in the two rehab games.

  • Colts Camp Football_Brem.jpg Wayne continues to silence doubters

    Reggie Wayne claimed he had nothing to prove in his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. But that hasn't stopped the 35-year-old wide receiver from consistently turning heads during Indianapolis Colts training camp at Anderson University.

    Early in Thursday night's practice at Anderson University, Colts tight end Coby Fleener found himself running free behind the defense in 11-on-11 drills. Seconds later, a laser-like pass arrived just past his shoulder, and he had a free run to the end zone. A crowd of 7,540 erupted inside Macholtz Stadium, adding a unique energy to the lone evening practice of this year's training camp.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
