This Toronto Blue Jays fan came up with a very creative sign for the second game of the three game home opening series against the New York Yankees today. It was the second straight game with a sell-out of the Rogers Centre.

The Blue Jays got great pitching from knuckleballer and ace R.A. Dickey today, as he struck out six in 6 2/3 innings of shutout pitching, helping the Jays hold on to a slim 1-0 lead provided by an Adam Lind RBI double in the second inning. The Jays would later get a solo home run from Melky Cabrera, and a two-run home run from Jose Bautista in the eighth inning to provide some insurance. Sergio Santos struck out two in 1 1/3 innings to earn his second save of the season.
For the Yankees, Michael Pineda made his first MLB start since September 21, 2011 when he was a rookie with the Seattle Mariners. He went six innings, throwing 83 pitches, and only giving up only five hits and the one run in what must be seen as a positive performance despite being on the hook for the loss.
The rubber match of the series is tomorrow at 1:o0 EDT. Drew Hutchinson (1-0) is expected to start for the Blue Jays, while CC Sabathia (0-1) will get the start for the Yankees.
