Lee outpitches Dickey; Blue Jays beat Phillies


CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) Cliff Lee gave up a run in three innings, outpitching fellow Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, but Adam Lind and Dan Johnson each homered for the Toronto Blue Jays in 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Lee, the 2008 AL Cy Young winner with Cleveland, allowed three hits and struck out two. He matched up against the 2012 NL winner - with the New York Mets - for the second time in six days.

''Cliff was solid, a normal outing for him,'' Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg said. ''He had his fastball command and he made some good pitches. I thought he looked sharp.''

Dickey yielded three runs and four hits in four innings of his second spring start. He struck out two and walked three.

''I felt strong, which is all I really care about right now,'' Dickey said. ''Being able to get up and down (for four innings) early in spring, feeling great, that's important for me.

Lind connected off right-hander B.J. Rosenberg with two outs in the fourth inning.

Marlon Byrd hit an opposite-field homer in the third off Dickey.


Phillies: Lee threw a perfect first inning en route to three sharp innings in his second spring outing. The left-hander hasn't walked a batter in five spring innings.

''I'm pretty happy with it,'' Lee said. ''I know what my job is (this spring) and I know what I need to do to prepare. . It's just a matter of doing it.''

Blue Jays: Dickey hit the second batter he faced and walked three but remained encouraged following his second start of the spring.

''I had a really good (knuckle) today,'' Dickey said. ''The one that hit (Freddy) Galvis, it broke three feet and just broke right into his shoe. That's part of the deal; you get one, it catches and goes that way. That's tough. Other than that I felt pretty good.''


Byrd finished the game 2 for 3 and is hitting .385 in five games this spring. The Phillies signed Byrd to a two-year, $16 million free-agent contract to play right field and bat behind cleanup hitter Ryan Howard.

''He's swinging a good bat and having consistent at-bats,'' Sandberg said. ''He's a good bat for us and he's showing it early.''


Phillies: Third baseman Cody Asche took batting practice with his teammates but was out of the lineup for the second straight day. Asche was hit in the right hand with a pitch from Pittsburgh's Yao-Hsun Yang on Sunday. He could return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Braves, according to Sandberg.

''He's a quick healer,'' Sandberg said.

Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins was a late scratch from the starting lineup. Rollins took part in pregame work with the team but has had flu-like symptoms. Rollins illness kept him out of camp on Monday.
