John Lackey walks off the field with trainer Rick Jameyson after he was injured in the fifth inning Saturday at Toronto. Lackey suffered a right biceps strain.
WHO: Red Sox (Lester 1-0) at Blue Jays (Dickey 0-1)
WHEN: 1:07 p.m.
"Happ was dynamite," Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons said. "He started throwing his changeup more and that was a big pitch for him."
Toronto was without slugger Jose Bautista for the second straight day because of a sore right ankle. The two-time major league home run leader was hurt stepping on first base while beating out a double play Thursday. Bautista hit in the cage and ran on the field before the game, and was available to pinch hit.
Adam Lind walked to begin the sixth and stole second, just the sixth stolen base of his career. Mark DeRosa drew a one-out walk before Rasmus clobbered a three-run shot off the facing of the third deck in right-center.
NOTES: The Red Sox were shut out for the first time since Sept. 16, when they also lost 5-0 to Toronto. ... Red Sox SS Jose Iglesias, who left Friday's game two innings after being hit on the arm by a pitch, was held out of the starting lineup. Farrell said it was a scheduled day off. ... Bench coach Torey Lovullo, not Farrell, brought the lineup card to home plate before the game. Farrell, who managed the Blue Jays the past two seasons before leaving to replace Bobby Valentine in Boston, was booed throughout the series opener Friday night.
