Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer and Justin Masterson tuned in six solid innings, as the Cleveland Indians topped Toronto, 4-1, in the season opener for both clubs from Rogers Centre.
Lonnie Chisenhall and Drew Stubbs drove in a run each for the Indians, who are looking to improve upon a 68-94 record and fourth-place finish in the AL Central.
Masterson (1-0) gave up just three hits, one run and four walks while fanning five. Chris Perez turned in a scoreless ninth for his first save.
Melky Cabrera scored the lone run for the Blue Jays, who revamped their roster in the offseason thanks to a mega-deal with Miami and several free-agent signings.
Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (0-1), the regining NL Cy Young winner, made his first AL appearance in four seasons. He allowed five hits and four runs -- three earned -- with four walks and as many strikeouts in six frames.
His batterymate, catcher J.P. Arencibia, was charged with three passed balls.
