R.A. Dickey allowed four runs in six innings against the Indians last week in his rough Blue Jays debut.
On Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, the 38-year-old knuckleballer had an even rougher time.
Dickey gave up five runs in the top of the first inning and was pulled from the game with two outs in the fifth inning after allowing a total of eight runs — seven earned — on 10 Boston hits and two Boston walks.
Dickey has now allowed 12 runs — 10 earned — on 15 hits through 10 2/3 innings with his new team.
It would be foolish to make too much of a couple of ugly starts, but Dickey rarely looked shaky in consecutive games last season. He’ll try to right the ship later this week when he takes on the Royals.
The Red Sox wound up winning Sunday’s series-finale in Toronto by a score of 13-0.
