ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. - At least one Toronto Blue Jay finds Tropicana Field to his liking.

While the Jays as a team have a six-year legacy of futility inside the dome that the Tampa Bay Rays call home, the place has nothing but good memories for R.A. Dickey.

It was here last season, on June 13, that he tossed a one-hitter against the Rays as a member of the Mets and it was here Wednesday that he stifled the Rays again, this time as a Blue Jay, allowing just two singles in a 3-0 shutout win to avoid a sweep in this three-game series.

In pitching the first complete game of the season by a Toronto pitcher, Dickey needed just 93 pitches and 130 minutes to get the job done.
