TORONTO -- Aaron Sanchez didnt know which Boston Red Sox hitters hed be facing, and he didnt know the score. Making his major league debut against Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli protecting a one-run lead, the Toronto Blue Jays top prospect just tried to pretend no one was in the batters box. "My mentality out there was just me and the catcher," Sanchez said. With 35,696 fans watching, Sanchez did just about the best he could do, working two perfect innings to help preserve Torontos 6-4 victory over the Red Sox on Thursday night at Rogers Centre. "To be in that kind of ball game, thats what you dream of when you get to the big leagues," the 22-year-old said. "Maybe not your first one, but Im here to help the team win." On his second day in the majors, Sanchez debated asking bullpen catcher Alex Andreopoulos who hed be facing. Once he finally did, Andreopoulos told him it didnt matter. Sanchez, considered one of the top young arms in baseball, used a mix of a fastball that topped out at 99 mph and an effective curveball to get Pedroia, Ortiz and Napoli to each fly out. Starter R.A. Dickey (8-10), who got the win by allowing four runs in six innings, watched from the clubhouse and came away impressed with how Sanchez dealt with the pressure. "Hes coming in against the 2-3-4 hitters of the Boston Red Sox with a two-run lead as a 22-year-old young man," Dickey said. "I thought he handled himself with great poise and hopefully thats a microcosm of what hes going to become." When Jose Bautista added to his impressive night (2-for-4 with two RBI) with a solo homer in the bottom of the seventh, Sanchez did a little fist pump in the dugout knowing he had just a little more breathing room to work with. He didnt need it. Sanchez caught Daniel Nava looking for his first major league strikeout, got Xander Bogaerts to ground out and struck out Stephen Drew to make it through his second inning perfect. Of his 25 pitches, 16 were strikes. "You see different guys over the years and young kids that come up, they can look a little rattled," manager John Gibbons said. "I dont know how you can do it any better than that. But he look like he belonged." On the mound, Sanchez tried to calm his nerves, remembering what his triple-A debut was like. He managed to keep from thinking about the moment until after his outing was done. "I think at the end when Gibby told me that I was done and he gave me a big smile and he said, Its OK to smile, I think thats when kind of everything hit me that Id just pitched in the big leagues for the first time," Sanchez said. The Blue Jays (53-49) are sure glad he did. Barring a complete game or close to it by Dickey, Gibbons knew Sanchez was going to pitch Wednesday night because of how beaten up the bullpen was. When Dickey gave up a three-run home run to Ortiz in the first before even recording an out, it looked like it could be a long night for the knuckleballer. Instead, the Blue Jays tied the score in the bottom of the inning and settled down. "The better thing was the way the team responded after falling behind 3-0," Gibbons said. "Thats key. They throw up a goose egg there, the emotions of the game, you dont know where it goes from there. Of course we turn around and score, it evens things out again." Dickey kept the Red Sox (47-54) off the board until Nava and Bogaerts hit back-to-back doubles in the fifth to make it 4-3. But in the sixth a triple by second baseman Ryan Goins tied it, and an error by Bogaerts at third on what wouldve been an inning-ending groundout by Reyes gave the Blue Jays the lead. That was the situation Sanchez faced, with his parents in attendance and major league career in front of him. Catcher Josh Thole said his fastball "felt like 130" after Dickeys knuckleball, but the rookie did everything else like a seasoned veteran. "It was nice to see him get in the ball game and be calm and just real even-keel when he was out there, not breathing heavy, there was no anxiety I felt," Thole said. "He commanded all of his pitches really well, even threw a couple change-ups that I thought he was commanding well. Any time youre throwing 98 and youve got a breaking ball like that, it makes it easy back there to call a game for him." Under any circumstances, it wouldve been a special night for Sanchez. But Gibbons was glad for the contribution the right-hander made in an important victory. "To give us two easy, shut-down innings was huge for the ballclub. Hell always remember that," Gibbons said. "We brought him here for a reason: Not just to debut, we brought him here to help us and that was a good start." Gibbons joked at the start of his news conference that he wanted to focus on team accomplishments before individuals because the Blue Jays are in a pennant race, chasing down the American League East-leading Baltimore Orioles. But in the scope of history, Dickey hopes Sanchezs debut is remembered as something special. "I think he was fantastic, and hopefully thats a glimpse kind of through the window of what might be," Dickey said. "I think its pretty neat to see something like that unfold."

NASHVILLE -- The Ottawa Senators got another big win with a solid team effort. Mika Zibanejad and Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over Nashville on Saturday night. Kyle Turris scored in regulation for Ottawa, which has won five of its last six. Craig Anderson had 31 saves through overtime, and then stopped Craig Smith and David Legwand in the shootout. "I thought Craig was again, a very consistent goaltender," Ottawa coach Paul MacLean. "Were slowly starting to build some momentum. Tonight I thought was a good effort by the total team and the whole team found a way to win the game." Mike Fisher had the lone goal for Nashville, which has lost three of four. Marek Mazanec finished with 20 saves. "Weve had some difficult stretches where we absolutely deserved to get two points and havent been able to do it, but we come out and play hard every night," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "Thats something everyone in that room can hang their hat on." Nashville is now 0-5 in shootouts this season, with their shooters scoring just once in 18 tries. Turris scored the games first goal at 6:23 of the second period. Nashville defenceman Mattias Ekholm carried the puck behind his own net and reversed it off the end boards, but he did not have a teammate there, and the puck came to Turris on the right side. Turris then beat a surprised Mazanec with a wrist shot for his 12th goal of the season, giving him a point in four of his last five games.dddddddddddd "I just tried to reverse it and it bounced right in front," Ekholm said. "I dont know if it hit him or the boards or something, but obviously bad play by me and I have to get better there." Fisher tied it with 3:01 left in the second period. With the teams skating 4-on-4, Ryan Ellis shot from above the left circle was blocked, but the puck came to Fisher just to the left of the Ottawa net where he snapped a shot past Anderson for his 12th of the season.

Anderson stopped Viktor Stalberg on a penalty shot with 8:17 left in the first period. Stalberg was awarded the attempt after having his feet taken out by Ottawas Joe Corvo on a breakaway just seconds after Stalberg finished serving a tripping penalty of his own.

Nashville D Kevin Klein played in his 400th career NHL game. ... Fisher has 11 points in his last eight games. ... Turris has goals in consecutive games for the fourth time this season.
