Drew Hutchison won his first start in almost two years, Adam Lind homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 on Tuesday night.
    
Hutchison (1-0) allowed three hits, three walks and struck out four over 5 1/3 shutout innings in his first big league game since June 15, 2012. The right-hander had elbow ligament replacement surgery in August 2012.
    
Lind put the Blue Jays up 3-0 on a three-run homer in the first off Alex Cobb (0-1). He sent a 3-1 pitch over the centre-field fence.
    
Cobb gave up four runs, five hits, four walks and had three strikeouts in five innings.

Jose Reyes hopes to return in a couple weeks from a hamstring injury, which occurred while running the bases in his first at-bat of the season Monday. An MRI exam Tuesday showed Reyes, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list, has mild inflammation of the hamstring.

The Blue Jays play their season home-opener on Friday against the Yankees.
