NEW YORK —Raul Ibanez might not get as many at-bats as the marquee sluggers on
the Yankees. Womens Julio Jones Jersey . Still, he has
shown a flair for the dramatic that rivals any of his teammates. Ibanez hit a
tiebreaking grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning and New York beat
Toronto 6-3 on Monday night after Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista left the game
with a wrist injury. Six of Ibanezs homers this season have either tied the
score or given New York the lead, according to STATS LLC. Eight of his 12 long
balls have come in the sixth inning or later. “I dont really think about it that
much. Just try to do whatever I can to help out,” Ibanez said of his clutch
hitting. “Just try to stay in the moment.” The Blue Jays might have lost one of
baseballs top sluggers for an extended period. Bautista injured his left wrist
on a swing in the eighth and was removed from the game. He hit a long foul ball
against David Robertson and immediately grabbed his wrist, dropping into a
crouch outside the batters box. Bautista walked off the field, gently supporting
the wrist with his right hand after being attended to by several Toronto staff
members. After the game, the Blue Jays said Bautista did not break a bone, but
he has a tendon injury and will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the
severity. “He didnt say exactly when” he hurt the wrist, Blue Jays manager John
Farrell said. “But through the course of completing the swing he felt a little
bit of a popping sensation.” The Blue Jays will wait to make a move until they
have a better idea how long the two-time defending AL home run champ will be
out. “There will be a follow-up transaction tomorrow,” Farrell said. “Certainly,
Joses not going to be ready to go tomorrow.” Ibanez connected on a 3-1 pitch
from Jason Frasor for a no-doubt drive into the first row of the second deck in
right field to snap a 2-all tie. One day after the Yankees left the bases loaded
in the ninth inning of a 10-8 loss to the Angels, Ibanez helped New York win for
the seventh time in nine games. The Yankees were 16 for 88 (.181) this season
with the bases full before he homered. The majors two best power-hitting teams
had padded their homer totals earlier—with Yankee Stadium specials. Both
Russell Martin, in the second inning, and Adam Lind, in the fourth, hit line
drives into the first row in right field. “That short porch over there, its been
nice to me,” Martin said. Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano hit one-out singles
in the eighth off Aaron Loup (0-1), recalled from the minors on Friday. Frasor
came on and hit Mark Teixeira in the foot with a pitch. Teixeira tried to fake
that he jumped out of the way because the ball bounced into the stands and A-Rod
would have scored. Rodriguez had advanced to second on a passed ball before
Canos hit and was on third. Ibanez then hit his 10th career slam. He has been
playing more because Brett Gardner has been on the disabled list since April 18
with an elbow injury and on Sunday he had his third setback in his
rehabilitation. “Im not sure how many extra at-bats hes gotten,” Yankees manager
Joe Girardi said of Ibanez, signed in the off-season to primarily be a
designated hitter. “But hes gotten a lot more playing time in left field and
thats probably helped his numbers, his production.” Robertson (1-3) pitched a
scoreless eighth for the win. Cody Eppley put two runners on with one out in the
ninth. The Blue Jays scored an unearned run when left fielder Dewayne Wise, a
defensive replacement, misplayed J.P. Arencibias single off Rafael Soriano, who
finished for his 23rd save. Fans hoping to see an offensive outburst from
homer-happy clubs were foiled by the wild but effective outings of
Henderson Alvarez and Phil Hughes. Alvarez walked a career-high four in six
innings. Hughes issued three free passes in seven innings, and each starter went
over 100 pitches. Hughes was hurt by a one-out walk to Bautista in the sixth.
The All-Star slugger scored from first on Edwin Encarnacions double that tied it
2-all. “Certainly wasnt a bad outing,” Hughes said. “If this is the low end for
the second half, that will be great.” Cano extended his hitting streak to a
career-high 19 games with an RBI double past a diving Bautista in right field in
the third after Rodriguez lined a two-base hit to left-centre to make it 2-0.
Rodriguez was moved from third base to designated hitter because he felt
stiffness in his neck during batting practice. He went 2 for 4 and scored two
runs. Linds homer to right in the fourth made it 2-1 and was the 20th of the
season off Hughes, but only the first in four games. Rajai Davis snapped an
0-for-25 slump with a one-out double in the seventh. NOTES: Yankees LHP

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has signed a new three-year deal with the Serie A
champion that will keep him with the club until 2015. Conte, a former Juventus
captain, took over last summer from Luigi Delneri, who failed to take Juventus
into the Europa League with a seventh-place finish in the Italian league. The
42-year-old Conte led Juventus to the league title this season and reached the
Italian Cup final. Juventus was unbeaten in the league, but lost to Napoli in
the cup. “Its obviously a great day,” Conte said. “Because my dream continues,
after a year of working. Certainly its a great show of admiration that fills me
with pride and happiness and definitely pushes me to try to definitely do
better. “In May last year, the clubs intentions were clear; it wanted to create
a project, to build year on year sommething that would take us back to the top,
like Juventus was in the past. Matt Bryant Jersey. We managed this year to
win the league, next year there will be a new challenge in Europe, where we will
have to try to consolidate what we have done well in Italy this year.” Conte
previously coached Siena, which he guided to promotion to Serie A in his last
season. It was the second time he led a team into the topflight, after Bari was
promoted in 2009. Conte played for Juventus from 1991 until he retired in 2004
and scored 44 goals in 419 games. He was part of the team that won the 1996
Champions League, the 1993 UEFA Cup and five Serie A titles. Conte was also in
the Italy squad that reached the final of the 1994 World Cup and scored one of
his two international goals on the way to Italy finishing the 2000 European
Championship second. ’ ’ ’
