TORONTO, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- R.A. Dickey baffled the Yankees over seven scoreless innings Tuesday and the Toronto Blue Jays handed slumping New York a fourth straight loss, 2-0.

Dickey (13-12) scattered four hits and two walks while striking out eight. The knuckle-baller threw 75-of-101 pitches for strikes in the gem.

Sergio Santos hurled scoreless eighth and Casey Janssen completed the shutout with his 31st save as Toronto took the first of a three-game series.

Colby Rasmus and Rajai Davis each bashed a solo homer to account for the Blue Jays' offense.

New York's Andy Pettitte (10-10) absorbed the loss despite yielding just one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and fanned five.

The Yankees' playoff hopes suffered another blow with the defeat. They came into contest trailing American League wild card co-leaders Tampa and Texas by 2 1/2 games, with Baltimore and Cleveland ahead of them.
