After an inpressive four-game home-and-home sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays welcome the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to town tonight for the start of a four-game weekend set. Cornell Armstrong Womens Jersey . The Blue Jays send Dustin McGowan amid rumors that hes battling to maintain starting status, though the teams general manager denied that hes in jeopardy of demotion. "I never understood the whole McGowan watch," Alex Anthopoulos said. "I kept hearing every start is for his job. I dont know that weve ever said it. Its been three starts in a row, every start is for his job. I just dont know that ever came from the organization." He was a 7-2 winner in his most recent outing at Pittsburgh on Sunday and has given up just three earned runs in his last 13 innings of work. "Hes definitely shown me something," Gibbons said. McGowan is 1-4 with a 3.86 ERA in five meetings with the Angels. On Thursday in Toronto, Edwin Encarnacion belted two home runs and drove in three to lead the Blue Jays to a 12-6 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies and sweep of a four-game set. Juan Francisco went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and three runs scored and Adam Lind, fresh off the 15-day disabled list, had a two-run blast and three RBI for Toronto, which outscored the Phillies, 31-11, in the series. Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey (3-3) worked 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits, while fanning eight. Toronto enters with an average of seven runs scored -- including 13 home runs -- in eight games in May. "We are some kind of hot right now," manager John Gibbons said. "You put us in this ballpark, its a home run heaven here. Its tough to pitch to. Everyone is feeding off each other." Right-hander Garrett Richards will continue his prolonged audition for a spot in the Angels starting rotation tonight. Richards was a part-time starter and reliever heading into this season, but hes been strong beginning games thus far in 2014 while holding opposition batters to a paltry .184 average and striking out 40 in 38 innings. He was a 5-3 winner in his most recent outing on Saturday, when he held Texas to three runs in six innings and struck out nine. He started twice against Toronto in the late stages of the 2013 season and won both assignments while allowing a combined five runs in 13 2/3 innings. On Wednesday in Anaheim, Derek Jeter hit his first homer of the season, Vidal Nuno tossed 6 1/3 solid innings and the New York Yankees beat the Angels, 9-2, in the rubber match of a three-game series. C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Angels, who saw starter Hector Santiago (0-6) give up six runs -- two earned -- on five hits with three walks over 2 1/3 innings. "Hector wasnt able to minimize damage tonight," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hes an emotional guy and he needs to get his confidence back." The Angels went 6-1 last season versus the Blue Jays, sweeping a three-game set in Toronto. Authentic Dolphins Jerseys . Grilli hasnt pitched since straining his left oblique in late April. Manager Clint Hurdle says the right-hander will make a couple of appearances in middle relief before the team determines whether to return Grilli to the back end of the bullpen.

It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of – genuine world class ability.MIAMI - Generally, the Raptors dont tend to play the what ifgame following a loss, Sundays being their first of the young season, but even they couldnt help but wonder what might have been if they had their starting power forward in uniform against the Heat. We missed him, theres no question about it, Dwane Casey said of Amir Johnson, a late scratch just ahead of the Raptors 107-102 loss in Miami, their 16th-straight defeat to the Heat and 10th-consecutive in South Beach. He gives you another roller to the basket, a guy who can score a little bit in the paint, he continued. He’s been doing a good job of scoring, he’s been doing a good job defensively. Johnson tweaked his troublesome left ankle early in Saturdays win over the Magic, staying in that game, but logging only 24 minutes. After getting pre-game treatment Sunday, he was ruled out - the teams medical staff opting for caution thisearly in the season. The Heat were without a couple of their bigs, as well. Chris Andersen missed the game with a bruised rib, while veteran Udonis Haslem continues to nurse a quad ailment. Returning from an injury, Josh McRoberts was only available to play spot minutes. With Miami playing small ball around the versatile Chris Bosh, this was a game in which the Raptors could have used their best help and rim defender. Tonight would have been a perfect game for Amir, DeMar DeRozan admitted after the loss. That’s Amir’s game. Do all the dirty work, rebound or even the tap outs to give us the chance to get the rebound. The most glaring disparity was the one on the boards. Toronto grabbed just 10 rebounds in the first half - compared to 24 for Miami - and was bested 43-28 on the glass in the game. Almost as concerning, the Heat shot an alarming 72 per cent at the rim and 63 per cent in the paint. Although they led the NBA in that category last year, they did it with LeBron James and managed 47 per cent in the painted area. The Raptors held opponents to 39 per cent shooting in the paint last season. That just wasn’t us, said DeRozan, who led Toronto with 30 points on the night. We just didn’t play good at all. You have to give credit to the Heat. They still played good, but things we can control, like making free throws and rebounding, that’s on us. Certainly, there were issues that went beyond the absence of Johnson and its purely speculative thinking to suggest that the final result would have been different with him in the line-up. Although Johnson would have probably put a dent in the rebounding disparity, its unlikely he would have pulled down 15. Bosh and Dwyane Wade each nearly out-rebounded the Raptors starters on their own. Mike Gesicki Womens Jersey. He also wouldnt have made up for the missed free throws - uncharacteristic for Toronto. They missed 15 of 39 attempts at the line, 11 courtesy of DeRozan and Kyle Lowry. Patrick Patterson started in place of Johnson and was held without a point or rebound in just under 15 minutes of action, a night after shooting 1-for-7 in Orlando. For Pat to have an off-night, it shouldn’t have been tonight, Casey said, unprompted after the game A lot of times guys will let their offensive woes go to the defensive end, he said of Pattersons early-season struggles. He had no rebounds and we’ve got to have him on the boards if Amir’s not there and he didn’t do that. Missing Amir was there, but that can’t be an excuse. Someone has to step up. The Raptors need more from Patterson, with or without Johnson in the line-up. A big part of their post-trade success last season and anchoring the teams improved second unit, Patterson was re-signed over the summer to replicate his 2013-14 impact and serve as insurance for Johnson. Prior to coming over from Sacramento, he had gotten off to a slow start last year as well. The forward shot just 41 per cent from the field and 23 per cent from three-point range in 17 games with the Kings before improving those clips to 48 per cent and 41 per cent, respectively, in Toronto. I will fix this, Patterson tweeted Monday. Of course, Johnson will be a free agent at the end of the campaign. Sunday nights game served as an early-season reminder of what makes him so valuable - his defence, rebounding, screening and spacing - and what makes him such a long-term risk - his wonky ankles. Johnson under went a procedure on his left ankle back in 2011. Although he didnt require surgery this summer - after turning both ankles on several occasions last season - he took a more innovative, preventative approach, spending time at the P3 (Peak Performance Project) sports clinic in Santa Barbara, California, studying methods that may help avoid future injury. A lot of those techniques - planting, jumping and landing differently - require him to alter learned muscle memory. Theyre helpful tools, but wont necessarily stave off the injury bug. More than ever the Raptors will need him as close to full health as possible at the end of the season and into the playoffs, a big reason why they made the decision to rest him early in the year. Hes considered day-to-day, but theyll continue to monitor his health and wont risk this becoming a nagging issue.
