BOSTON (AP) -- R.A. Dickey might be starting to lose his element of surprise.
After allowing just three runs in his season debut, the knuckleballer has given up 11 over his past two starts -- both against Boston -- and allowed four in 4 2/3 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Red Sox 5-3 on Friday night.
"These guys are starting to get a lot of at-bats off him now," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "In this division, the element of surprise isn't what it used to be. It's going to be tough."
