DUNEDIN, Fla. Randall Cobb White Jersey . —Forget the
ugly line, Cole Hamels thought he had a decent day on the mound. Hamels gave up
five runs and seven hits while pitching into the fourth inning of the
Philadelphia Phillies 10-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. “I was very happy with
what I was able to do today,” Hamels said after being pulled in only 3 1-3
innings. Jose Bautista and Yan Gomes each drove in three runs and Brett Cecil
allowed one run on four hits over four innings, striking out two for Toronto,
which had 15 hits. “Its all about fine-tuning now, to be able to throw all of
your pitches where you want to,” Hamels said. “Its nice to know you can go out
there and be free and easy and build up the arm strength that you have to have.
I feel Im getting there.” Hamels performance didnt faze manager Charlie Manuel,
either. “He was all right. He was OK,” Manuel said. He was working on his change
and his cutters. Hes fine. As long as I see something coming out and hes
throwing strikes and things like that. If I think hes consistent enough it
doesnt bother me. “Ive seen guys in spring training really get hit and then the
season starts and theyll be OK,” Manuel said. “His arms sound. Hell be ready.”
The Phillies gave Hamels a 1-0 lead in the first on Shane Victorinos triple to
right-centre off Cecil and Hunter Pences sharp hit through the hole at
shortstop. They didnt score again until the ninth when Luis Montanez doubled to
right-centre and Michael Martinez singled. Cecil is 3-0 this spring with a 0.90
ERA. He has allowed six hits in 10 innings. Toronto gave him the lead in the
third when Gomes hit the first of his two doubles and Yunel Escobar singled him
home. The Blue Jays chased Hamels with three runs in the fourth. Ben Francisco
and Rajai Davis singled, Mike McCoy dropped an RBI bunt single to first base and
stole second, and Gomes hit a two-run single. Phillies reliever Jose Contreras
only got one out in the Blue Jays five-run sixth. Davis singled, Gomes and
Escobar hit run-scoring doubles, Brian Bocock singled for another run,
David Herndon replaced Contreras and Bautista homered over the left field wall.
“It was a first-pitch fastball,” Herndon said. “He ambushed me.” Toronto manager
John Farrell was pleased to see the way his Blue Jays produced some of their
runs. “Even setting aside the number of quality at-bats, it was good to see us
also manufacture some runs,” Farrell said. “A hit and run by Rajai Davis, a
safety squeeze by Mike McCoy. Some of the things that we havent really called
upon too much this spring. It was good to see opportunities present themselves
to execute in that way.” NOTES: Toronto third baseman Brett Lawrie was “held out
of any work (Sunday), no BP or anything like that” as he recovers from a left
groin strain he experienced Friday, manager John Farrell said. Lawrie is
undergoing treatment and “theres improvement being made. ... Theres no target
date yet (for his return) but we dont think this should be an extended issue,
either.” ... The Blue Jays returned pitchers Jerry Gil and Deck McGuire and
catcher A.J. Jimenez to minor league camp and optioned catcher Travis DArnaud
and first baseman Mike McDade to minor league camp. ... The Phillies will start
Scott Elarton against Max Scherzer and the visiting Tigers on Monday at
Clearwater. ... Toronto is off Monday and will start Dustin McGowan on Tuesday
against Daniel Bard and the host Red Sox at Fort Myers. Clay Matthews Jersey . Louis Cardinals placed
have outfielder Allen Craig on the 15-day disabled list on Friday because of a
left hamstring strain, along with reliever Kyle McClellan due to an elbow
strain. Charles Woodson Pink Jersey . “Making some
wishes,” Howard said. One of his wishes has finally come true. At long last, hes
out of Orlando. It took four teams, 11 other players, five draft picks and
countless rounds of talks over many months, but the Orlando Magic decided the
time was right to start over without the NBAs best centre and end a saga that
has dogged the franchise for what seems like an eternity. http://www.officialgreenbaypackersgear.com/jordy-nelson-jersey
. – The Phoenix Coyotes financial situation is no mystery—the team is still
owned by the National Hockey League, which has been looking for a buyer for
nearly a year. Casey Hayward Jersey . In the process, they
provided the Jacksonville Jaguars with a harsh taste of reality. Joe Flacco
completed 27 of 36 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns before leaving early
in the third quarter, and Baltimore cruised to a 48-17 victory Thursday night.
Jermichael Finley Jersey . Offensive Skill
Players – Led by all-purpose back Ray Rice, the Ravens offence is no longer
looked at as the weak link of the team.KANSAS CITY, Mo. —Pablo Sandoval and
Melky Cabrera turned the All-Star game into a Giant blowout. Flashing their
bright orange spikes and booming bats, the San Francisco sluggers keyed a
five-run blitz against Justin Verlander in the first inning that sent the
National League to an 8-0 romp over the American League on Tuesday night.
Cabrera homered and won the MVP award, and Giants teammate Matt Cain started a
strong pitching performance for the NL in its most-lopsided All-Star victory.
Cain combined with Stephen Strasburg, R.A. Dickey, Aroldis Chapman and the rest
of a lights-out staff on a six-hitter. “San Francisco Giants show,” Matt Kemp of
the rival Dodgers said during the game. Ryan Braun, an All-Star again after his
drug suspension was overturned last winter, doubled, tripled and made a fine
catch in the outfield to help give the NL its first three-game winning streak in
two decades. Chipper Jones singled in his final All-Star at-bat at age 40 as the
NL, under retired manager Tony La Russa, once again claimed home-field advantage
in the World Series. Teen sensation Bryce Harper had a shaky All-Star debut.
Fellow rookie Mike Trout, only 20, showed off his dynamic skills. The game was
pretty much decided a few moments after it started. Sandoval hit the first
bases-loaded triple in All-Star history off Verlander, who couldnt control his
100 mph heat. Cabrera singled and scored the first run, then hit a two-run homer
against Matt Harrison in a three-run fourth. “I dont get many triples,” said the
slow-footed Sandoval, known as Kung Fu Panda. “We had some fun with that in the
dugout.” Cabrera was flanked by his mom as he received his award. “I was
surprised for me, the MVP, but thank you, the fans,” he said. San Francisco
fans, who made a late voting push to elect Sandoval and Cabrera to starting
spots, might really appreciate the victory come October. The Giants are a
half-game behind the first-place Dodgers in the NL West. Rafael Furcal also hit
a three-bagger, making the NL the first league with three in an All-Star game.
As the All-Stars returned to Kansas City for the first time since 1973, La Russa
bid a fond farewell to the national stage in the city where he played for his
first major league team. Having retired after managing St. Louis to last years
World Series title, La Russa became just the fourth inactive manager to skipper
an All-Star team and improved to 4-2. “Just lucky, like Ive been 30 years,” La
Russa said. The NL boosted its advantage to 43-38-2 and won for just the third
time in the 10 years the All-Star game has been used to determine home-field
advantage in the World Series. La Russas Cardinals benefited from last years NL
All-Star victory, with St. Louis winning Games 6 and 7 at home against Ron
Washingtons Texas Rangers. “Its very disappointing, because were competitors and
we want to win,” said Washington, who lost for the second straight year. “They
came out. They swung the bats. Once they got the lead, started bringing those
arms in their hand, and they got the job done.” Jones, retiring at the end of
the season, also had one last All-Star moment, pinch hitting in the sixth and
singling just past second baseman Ian Kinsler and into right field. Jones
chuckled as the ball rolled through. “Whether youre 19 or 40, we are all equals
here,” Jones said during his pregame speech to the NL. Harper, at 19 the
youngest position player in All-Star history, had a shaky start when he entered
in the fifth. The heralded rookie, wearing shiny gold shoes, didnt flash a Gold
Glove and lost Mike Napolis routine fly to left in the lights, allowing it to
drop behind him for a single. He then caught Kinslers bases-loaded flyball to
end the inning, earning ccheers from the crowd of 40,933 at Kauffman Stadium,
spruced up by a $250 million renovation that was completed three years ago. Clay Matthews Womens Jersey. Harper did draw
a walk and tagged up on a long fly, but later got himself hung up in a rundown
and tagged out. Trout, among a record five All-Star rookies, had a nice showing
against two very different pitchers. The Angels outfielder singled and stole a
base against Dickeys knuckleball, then drew a walk against Chapman and his 101
mph heat. “Im going to remember this the rest of my life,” Trout said. Cain
pitched the 22nd perfect game in big league history last month. He didnt have to
be perfect in this one, allowing one hit in two innings for the win. “For those
guys to go out and score five runs in the first inning was definitely a little
more relaxing for me,” he said. “But I still tried to stay focused.” Cain was
followed by 10 relievers, with Jonathan Papelbon getting the last out with a
runner on third base. Verlander had a puzzling outing. In games that count, he
hasnt allowed five runs in an inning since April 2010, according to STATS LLC.
He became the first All-Star to give up a five-spot since Houstons Roger Clemens
in front of his hometown fans in 2004. “It was pretty difficult for me to get
the ball down today,” said Verlander, who admitted he approached this
differently than a regular-season start. In a 35-pitch inning, he threw five
pitches clocked at 100 mph and another at 101. “But I had fun,” he said. “Thats
why I dont try to throw 100 in the first inning. But this is for the fans. It
doesnt usually work out too well for me.” A crowd clad in red, white and blue
T-shirts cheered during pregame introductions for hometown star Billy Butler,
who dropped his cap when he tried to wave it. Fans booed the New York Yankees
Robinson Cano, who angered local fans when he bypassed Butler for Monday nights
Home Run Derby. Not since Game 7 of Kansas Citys 1985 World Series over the
Cardinals had the baseball world descended on the Royals ballpark, a rare 1970s
beauty known for its 322-foot-wide fountain in right and the 105-foot-high
scoreboard topped by a crown. Cabrera, a former Yankee and Royal, singled with
one out in the first and scored on a double to deep right by Braun, the reigning
NL MVP. Verlander threw six straight balls during consecutive two-out walks to
Carlos Beltran and Buster Posey. Wearing shiny gold-and-orange spikes for the
occasion, Sandoval sent a drive off the base of the wall in the right-field
corner for a 4-0 lead. He scored when Dan Uggla grounded to the shortstop hole
and first baseman Prince Fielder failed to come up with Derek Jeters one-hop
throw, leaving Uggla with an infield hit. After Furcal tripled to right,
pinch-hitter Matt Holliday singled for a 6-0 lead and Cabrera followed with a
drive into the left-field bullpen. Dickey, a first-time All-Star at 37, was
given a big ovation. He pitched a one-hit sixth, hitting Paul Konerko on a
shoulder with pitch. Although he has a big league-best 12-1 record, Dickey was
denied the start—possibly because of the difficulty of catching his knuckler.
He brought along an oversized glove from Mets catcher Josh Thole that was used
by Carlos Ruiz, who replaced Posey behind the plate in the sixth. “I really
appreciate the warm reception by the fans in Kansas City. Maybe a lot of them
have heard my story,” Dickey said. “It was definitely worth the wait,” he said.
NOTES: The NL extended the ALs scoreless streak to 14 innings—its longest
drought since 1995-97. ... The NL won for just the sixth time in a
quarter-century. ... The NL had last won three straight in 1994-96. ... It was
the first All-Star shutout since the NLs 6-0 win in 1996 at Philadelphia. ’ ’ ’
