KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- After finding out Jose Reyes likely will be sidelined until the All-Star break, R.A. Dickey won his first game for the Toronto Blue Jays.

The NL Cy Young Award winner allowed one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings Saturday night, and Jose Bautista backed him with a two-run homer in the Blue Jays' 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals.

James Shields (1-2) was a hard-luck loser for the Royals, pitching a two-hitter with six strikeouts and three walks.

Acquired from the New York Mets after going 20-6 last season, Dickey was 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA in his first two starts for Toronto. Against the Royals, the knuckleballer struck out four, walked two and hit a batter, throwing 64 of 100 pitches for strikes.
