TORONTO —The Toronto Blue Jays gave the Kansas City Royals all the help they
needed. Rob Gronkowski Jersey . Whether it was
reliever Francisco Cordero failing to cover first base to allow two runs to
score, or two players who were doubled up on line outs, the Blue Jays were in a
generous mood on Thursday. And as a result the Royals held off Toronto for a 9-6
victory to earn a four-game series split. Eric Hosmer led Kansas City with three
runs batted in. Cordero failed to cover first base on Hosmers grounder to second
that could have ended the eighth with one run scored. But the reliever was late
getting to the bag and two runs scored for an 8-3 Royals lead. “Coco (Cordero)
is well aware of it, hes a stand-up guy,” manager John Farrell said. “Hes trying
to get the most out of the stuff he has and yet a couple of seeing-eye base
hits, a broken-bat base hit, but the lapse at that point is a key moment in the
game.” The Blue Jays came back with three runs in the bottom of the eighth, two
on a pinch-hit triple by Ben Francisco. Salvador Perez had a career-best four
hits for the Royals to extend his hit streak to 11 games. J.P. Arencibia hit two
home runs for Toronto (42-41) and had three runs batted in for the game.
Torontos Henderson Alvarez (5-7) allowed eight hits in 5 1/3 innings and all
five of the runs charged to him were in the third inning when the Royals sent 10
batters to the plate. “They did their job staying on his stuff,” Farrell said.
“I thought Henderson had quality pitches throughout but there were some base
hits that found holes and there were a couple of walks that prolonged the
inning.” Luke Hochevar (6-8) allowed four hits in five innings and two runs,
both on a home run by Arencibia in the third. He left after five innings after
suffering a right ankle sprain in the bottom of the fifth while covering first
base. Yuniesky Betancourt homered for the Royals (37-44). The Blue Jays had a
couple of possible threats blunted by poor base running. Rajai Davis lined to
short and Betancourt made the catch and doubled up Yunel Escobar at second to
end the fourth. Jose Bautista lined out to third and that ended the game when
Colby Rasmus was doubled off first base and Jonathan Broxton picked up his 21st
save. “Obviously the read is to freeze on the line drive and yet were a couple
of strides in to try to advance a base and it ends up costing us,” Farrell said.
“Were going to remain aggressive but we still have to play heads up baseball.”
The Royals struck for five runs in the third. It started with one out when Perez
singled, Jarrod Dyson doubled, and Alex Gordon walked to load the bases.
Alcides Escobar and Hosmer singled in runs, then two more runs were scored on an
infield single by Billy Butler and a throwing error by third baseman
Brett Lawrie. “In the third inning I was pulling my left shoulder to first base
so I was getting a little open so the pitches werent moving as good,” Alvarez
said through coach Luis Rivera. “The next inning I made the adjustment and kept
shoulder straight and stepped toward the plate and that helped me.” Arencibia
homered after Kelly Johnsons leadoff double in the third to cut the lead to 5-2.
Hochevar injured his ankle while running to cover first base on Rasmus infield
single in the fifth. He stayed in the game and struck out Bautista to finish the
inning. “I thought Hosmer caught the ball so I kind of let up a little bit and
then I saw that it took a funky hop and skipped out of his glove,” Hochevar
said. “Then I tried to put on the afterburner to try and get there and when I
caught it I just lunged for the bag and I just hit the bag on the inside and
just rolled it in. “It wouldnt have been bad if it wasnt on the inside. When I
was pushing off the rubber it extended it and it was biting me pretty good.”
Left-hander Tim Collins took over from Hochevar in the sixth and gave up
Arencibias second homer of the game and 13th of the season with one out in the
seventh before being replaced by Greg Holland. Alvarez was replaced by
left-hander Luis Perez with one out in the sixth after a single by
Salvador Perez. Right-handed reliever Sam Dyson made his major-league debut for
the Blue Jays in the seventh, replacing Perez with two out. Dyson had a walk and
a strikeout to finish the inning. The 24-year-old was promoted from double-A New
Hampshire to replace Canadian right-hander Scott Richmond, who was returned to
triple-A Las Vegas after Wednesdays game. Cordero allowed three runs in the
eighth on five singles. But the final two runs scored on Hosmers grounder to
second became an infield hit when Cordero was late covering first. Farrell said
Cordero made another fielding mistake in the inning. “A ground ball back to him
gets under his bare hand where it looks to be a tailor-made double play as
well,” Farrell said. “Those two defensive plays certainly contributed to the
crooked number on the scoreboard and as it turns out they became costly
especially after we were able to put three runs back on the board.” Aaron Crow
allowed a run-scoring single to Escobar to drive in one run in the bottom of the
eighth after Edwin Encarnacion walked and Adam Lind singled. Francisco hit his
triple against left-hander Jose Mijares. Drew Carpenter gave up Betancourts
sixth homer of the season in the ninth. Notes: Attendance at Rogers Centre was
20,598. ...The Blue Jays will start left-hander Aaron Laffey (0-0, 2.14
earned-run average) on Friday in Chicago against White Sox right-hander
Jake Peavy (6-5, 2.96 ERA) in the opener of a three-game series that leads to
the All-Star Game break. Sebastian Vollmer Jersey . Cunningham was
selected by the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round of the 2009 NBA
draft. In three seasons, the 6-foot-8 forward has averaged 5.2 points, on 48. Vince Wilfork Jersey . Under an ice pack on
his right foot was a nasty bump, the size of a “camel hump” in his words. http://www.newenglandpatriotsroom.com/kyle-arrington-jersey-1
. The 40-year-olds latest gem came in Montreals 38-25 win at Edmonton Friday
night, where he threw for 327 yards and four touchdowns. Vintage Calvillo. Tedy Bruschi Jersey . The 23-year-old from
St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., crossed the finish line just 4.2 seconds back of
winner Dario Cologna of Switzerland. “It was a good race today for me. Chandler Jones Jersey . —The Los Angeles
Lakers signed seven-foot Canadian centre Robert Sacre on Friday. ST. PETERSBURG,
Fla. —Zach McAllister shrugged off being struck in his pitching arm by a line
drive to finish six solid innings and the Cleveland Indians held on to beat the
Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Monday night. McAllister (4-1) appeared to get hit in the
right arm above the elbow by Jeff Keppingers RBI single in the fourth inning. He
remained in the game to retire the next six batters and eight of the last nine
he faced overall. Shin-Soo Choo had a RBI double in the third after he had what
initially was ruled a home run overturned by instant replay in the first for
Cleveland. The umpires huddled after Rays centre fielder B.J. Upton signalled
that the ball hit high off the wall instead of clearing it and bouncing back
onto the field. Choo was sent back to second base and eventually scored on a
passed ball that gave the Indians an early lead on Alex Cobb (4-6). Choo scored
again in the third when Jason Kipnis doubled to make it 3-0. McAllister allowed
one run and three hits before being replaced by Esmil Rogers, who yielded a
first-pitch home run to Desmond Jennings leading off the seventh. A pair of
two-out walks put the potential tying run in scoring position before the third
Indians pitcher of the inning, Vinnie Pestano, came on to strike out
Ben Zobrist. Pestano fanned pinch-hitter Brooks Conrad to escape another jam
with two men on in the eighth. Chris Perez worked a perfect ninth, earning his
26th save in 28 opportunities. Pitching on seven days rest, McAllister made his
second consecutive start against the Rays. He retired 13 of the first 14 batters
he faced against them at home on July 8, but wound allowing four runs and four
hits over 5 2/3 innings and was not involved in the decision of a 7-6 loss. Julian Edelman Jersey. The 24-year-old
right-hander walked three and needed 41 pitches to get through the first two
innings this time. He held the Rays hitless until B.J. Upton singled, leading
off the fourth. Luke Scott followed with a single and Keppinger drove in Tampa
Bays first run when he lined a pitch that struck McAllister on his
follow-through. Clevelands trainer examined the spot where McAllister said he
was hit, and the pitcher remained in the game. He avoided further damage in the
inning when Jennings bounced into a double play and Jose Molina grounded out.
Meanwhile, the Indians wasted several opportunities to build on their early
lead. They loaded the bases with no outs, yet failed to score in the fourth and
began the fifth with a double and walk only to strand a runner at third.
Cleveland was 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position through five innings and
finished 2 for 12. Notes: Cobb allowed three runs and five hits over 3 1/3
innings. ... The Indians said OF Trevor Crowe was released from Triple-A
Columbus. ... Tampa Bay OF Matt Joyce, on the disabled list since June 22 with a
left external oblique strain, could be nearing the end of a rehab assignment
with Single-A Charlotte. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday and could rejoin the
Rays before the end of this four-game series. ... Rays manager Joe Maddon said
3B Evan Longoria (partially torn left hamstring) may travel with the team to
continue workouts during a road trip that begins next Tuesday at Baltimore. ’ ’
