TORONTO —The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping to have Jose Bautista back in the
lineup as soon as next weekend. Antonio Gates Jersey . The slugger took
batting practice on the field prior to Saturdays game against the Texas Rangers
and manager John Farrell laid out a plan for his return afterwards. Bautista is
scheduled to join the Jays rookie ball team in Dunedin, Fla., on Monday with an
eye on making his way back to the big league club for a three-game series that
starts Friday in Baltimore. Bautista is working his way back from an injured
left wrist and Farrell was happy with what he saw in the batting cage on
Saturday morning. “It was pretty close to his normal pre-game BP,” said Farrell.
“With each successive day of work—either in the cage or now on the field—
hes feeling more confident. Hell repeat todays activity tomorrow and then well
look to get him out and get some live game activity.” Bautista has been out
since July 16, when he suffered the injury on a swing at Yankee Stadium. He was
batting .244 with 27 home runs and 65 RBIs at the time. The Jays are also
preparing for the impending return of Brett Lawrie. The third baseman is
recovering from a muscle strain in his rib cage and travelled to Dunedin for
some rehab work this weekend. He could come off the disabled list as the Jays
set off for a nine-game road trip next week. “Hopefully, he meets us in
Detroit,” said Farrell. Philip Rivers Womens Jersey . The Jays halted
the five-game skid by topping the New York Yankees, 10-7, on Sunday in the
finale of a three-game set. Rajai Davis drove in five runs and made a superb
defensive play, as Toronto avoided the sweep. Ryan Mathews Jersey . “I thought I did enough
to win,” Edgar said of his fight last February with Henderson in Japan. “But I
dont really want to dwell on it now that were here. “I was fortunate that it was
close enough to get me a rematch. This is like a chance for redemption for me,
righting a wrong. http://www.chargersteamstore.com/antonio-gates-jerseys
.Y. —The Buffalo Bills are on their third kicker this season after signing
Brandon Coutu and placing Dave Rayner on injured reserve. Philip Rivers Jersey . Hubert, Que., has
become the third member of McGill Universitys national champion mens hockey
team, to sign a contract to play professional hockey. Eric Weddle Jersey . – Tomas Vokoun made 41
saves for the Florida Panthers on Saturday night, but his most important might
have been the one he didnt see.Diana Mathesons 92nd minute, stoppage time goal
led Canada to a 1-0, bronze medal victory over France in womens soccer at the
London 2012 Olympic Games. This is Canadas first medal in a traditional summer
team sport since picking up a silver medal in basketball at the Berlin 1936
Games. As time was set to expire in the second half, Canadian midfielder Sophie
Schmidt broke in on goal and fired a shot that was deflected away by a French
defender. Following up on the play, Matheson found the loose ball in the box and
fired it into an open net to earn Canada the victory. “It feels amazing, we felt
as a group that we were going to earn this and we did in the last minute,” said
Matheson. “Our goal coming in was to be on the podium and was had the perfect
opportunity to do that, that is what we were focused on.” She also feels this
victory could be big for the future of soccer in the country. “It means so much
to us, we came in wanting to leave a legacy for Canadian soccer and I think we
did that,” said Matheson. Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, the tournaments
leading scorer with six, is proud of the way her teammates competed in the
bronze medal game.  “Its been a long battle on this national team and John
(Herdman) came on board and completely changed it, Im just so proud of this
team,” said Sinclair.  “We battled through exhaustion today and came out on
top.” The winning goal came after a 90 minute contest that was dominated by a
France side that never looked to be in danger of losing the game. Wave after
wave of French attack was turned away by keeper Erin McLeod and the Canadian
defensive line. Twice in a one minute span, France rattled the ball off the
Canadian net coming close to taking the lead. Both Gaetane Thiney and Elodie
Thomis found enough space to fire open shots at the attacking goal, but both
were turned away by the net framework. In fact, France fired 25 shots towards
the Canadian goal, compared to just four for the Canadian side. “Today (McLeod)
proved that if she is not the best goalkeeper in the world, she should be in the
discussion,” said Sinclair. “She kept our team in it. She is the most amazing
teammate. She is a leader. SShe saved our butts so many times today it is
incredible. Ryan Mathews Womens Jersey. ”  For her part,
McLeod was happy to see the improvements her team made over the course of the
competition. “At the beginning of the tournament, we played well but I think
weve raised the bar as weve gone through,” said McLeod. “Weve got better as we
went on. Im so proud of the way weve played. Im so proud of everybody.” The
majority of the French attack took place in the second half of the game as the
Canadian team hung on under incredible pressure from their opponents. Though
Canada did not generate many scoring chances in the game, there were many
members of the team that played a physical defensive style up and down the pitch
to help secure the victory. Forward Jonelle Filigno was one of those players and
after the game she was very happy to be on the right said of a late game result.
“To be honest I dont even think it has real hit me yet, words just cant
describe,” said Filigno. “It was a heartbreak against the US, so just to come
back from that and win the bronze medal for our country feels like a gold to
us.” Canadas head coach John Herdman felt his team answered everything asked of
them coming off an emotional semi-final defeat to claim the bronze. “It was a
hell of a game the other night, the big question was could they repeat that?
Could they get up again? And to be fair, we wobbled for long times but halfback
four, Erin, Desi Scott, they were just remarkable and to see Sophie Schmidt
covering the ground, they were posessed,” said Herdman. “You know France, all
credit to them, they were outstanding, they were the better team for periods but
you got to put the ball in the back of the net and we werent going to let them
do that today.” Herdman also had a message for the next generation of Canadian
soccer players. “I just hope those young kids out there watching never give up,”
said Herdman. “Never give up and youll see what resilience and commitment will
do for you.  “Its a hell of a game and youve got to be proud of your girls and
Im hoping a couple of them will get up off their bums today, put the football
boots on and be ready for 2024.” ’ ’ ’
