Blue Jays 0-5 in Last Five Dickey Starts

The Toronto Blue Jays have been tagged with a loss in each of starting pitcher R.A. Dickey's last five trips to the mound as he takes the ball on Thursday afternoon in baseball odds action versus the Oakland A's at O.Co Coliseum.

Overall Dickey has a 4.70 ERA and an ugly 3-10 record this season, although he had to settle for a no-decision last time out despite allowing just one run in six innings. Drew Pomeranz (4-3, 3.58 ERA) pitches for the Athletics on Thursday, with projected starter Scott Kazmir having been traded earlier in the day to the Houston Astros.
