MINNEAPOLIS -- R.A. Dickey has found a rhythm late in this lost season for Toronto. The Blue Jays are buried in last place, but Dickey hasnt given up. Dickey pitched into the seventh inning, and the Blue Jays hung on for a 6-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. "I feel good. I feel like Ive gotten stronger as the year has gone on. I feel like Ive been able to carry my workload just fine," Dickey said. "Ive got four more starts left, and hopefully Ill be able to log a lot more innings." Dickey is three full innings from reaching the 200-inning mark for a third straight season. Winning his third straight start, Dickey gave up seven hits and three runs to a Twins team he was a reliever for in 2009. He struck out four and walked one to beat former New York Mets teammate Mike Pelfrey after losing to him in Toronto in July. "You set some goals for yourself, and hopefully you can get above 200 innings and win close to 15 games," Dickey said. "Those are all good benchmarks, but at this point you still have to be careful not to get too far ahead of yourself." Jose Reyes reached base all four times and sparked a five-run second against Pelfrey (5-11) with an RBI single. Brett Lawrie hit a two-run single and Moises Sierra followed with a two-run double in that inning. "Theyre doing a nice job," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of the influx of young players in the lineup. "This is their opportunity, and theyre trying to take advantage of it." Casey Janssen gave up a home run to rookie catcher Josmil Pinto in the ninth, but he closed it out for his 28th save in 30 tries on a strikeout-caught stealing double play. "Casey bends sometimes, but he doesnt break," Gibbons said. After acquiring the 2012 NL Cy Young Award winner from the Mets in a seven-player trade, one of many bold moves last winter, this season hasnt gone the way the Blue Jays or the 38-year-old knuckleballer wanted despite the arrival of several high-profile players. Only lowly Houston has a higher team ERA in the majors. Lately, theyve been a little better. This was Torontos eighth victory in the past 11 games. Over Dickeys past eight turns, effectively changing speeds more than usual, hes 4-1 with a 3.02 ERA. Blue Jays starters are 8-2 with a 2.93 ERA in the past 11 games. With Justin Morneau now playing for Pittsburgh and Joe Mauer still on the disabled list due to concussion symptoms, there wasnt much resistance for Dickey. Chris Colabello, the fill-in for Morneau at first base, had three RBIs. Pinto had two more hits and is 9 for 14 to start his career. With two on and two out after an RBI single by Trevor Plouffe in the eighth against Dustin McGowan, Colabello came up as the go-ahead run. But he struck out on a full-count fastball from the right-hander. "After facing a guy whos not quite overpowering your first three at-bats," Colabello said of facing McGowan after Dickey. "I didnt really get much to hit that at-bat, but I think I would have liked to have had a little bit better at-bat in general." In the seventh, after Oswaldo Arcia doubled, Dickeys left leg slipped on the dirt and rolled underneath him during one of his deliveries to Colabello. A couple of pitches later, Colabello, the International League MVP despite playing only 89 games for Triple-A Rochester, smacked a 2-1 fastball into the bullpen behind left-centre field to bring the Twins within three runs. Dickey said he overexposed that pitch, working with such a big lead early. When Gibbons pulled Dickey with one out, the right-hander was shaking his head as he walked by. "I felt like I couldve gone seven innings very easily. I had a little lapse there in the seventh, but I didnt feel like things were spinning out of control," Dickey said. "But at the end of the day its his call, and I respect that." While full counts, frustrated pacing around the mound and sub-six-inning starts have been the story of Pelfreys summer, he turned a corner in August. That progress was gone by the second inning, when the Blue Jays battered his pitches all over the outfield. He steadied himself and retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced, but the damage was done. Pelfrey completed six innings, giving up six hits and six runs, five earned. He struck out seven and walked two. "Hes a workhorse. Hes always been that guy," Dickey said, adding: "Kudos to him for kind of gutting one out."

The Blue Jays are 9-3 all time at Target Field. ... The Twins will send RHP Kevin Correia (9-10, 4.18 ERA) to the mound on Saturday night, and LHP J.A.

Each team missed a shot before Rondo connected again on a short shot with 18.7 seconds to play.

Michael Beasley, making his second start of the season, began the second quarter with a running hook that gave Miami its biggest lead of the half. But Boston rallied to cut it to 59-53 at intermission. Haslem, whose season-high was seven points, had 14 at halftime but didnt score again. And Miami outscored Boston 32-8 in the paint and 11-0 on fast breaks in the half.
