BALTIMORE -- J. John Paxson Jersey .A. Happ pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Dioner Navarro had three hits and two RBIs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 Sunday for a split of the four-game series. Edwin Encarnacion also had three hits for the Blue Jays, who had totalled 15 runs in losing six of their previous eight games. The AL East leaders came to town with a 4 1/2-game lead. Adam Jones homered and Nelson Cruz had three hits and his major league-leading 56th RBI for the Orioles. Happ (6-3) gave up one run, seven hits and no walks in six-plus innings. He had lost two of his previous three starts, yielding 12 earned runs over 17 2-3 innings. Casey Janssen got four outs for his 12th save. Chris Tillman (5-4) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. The right-hander didnt issue a walk or record a strikeout. Tillman is 0-4 with a 2.78 ERA at home and 5-0 with a 6.33 ERA on the road. The Blue Jays went up 5-1 with a two-run eighth against Tommy Hunter. Navarro hit an RBI double and Steve Tolleson added a run-scoring groundout. Jones hit his 11th homer of the season in the bottom half off Dustin McGowan. Toronto got a first-inning run on an RBI double by Jose Bautista, who one pitch earlier thought he had drawn a walk on a 3-1 offering that umpire Jerry Layne called a strike. The Blue Jays wasted a leadoff double in the second inning but converted the same situation in the fourth. After Encarnacion doubled, Navarro blooped an RBI single to left field for a 2-0 lead. In the Toronto fifth, Anthony Gose snapped a 5-for-38 skid with a leadoff single, advanced on a double by Jose Reyes and scored on a flyball by Melky Cabrera. Baltimore closed to 3-1 in the sixth when Jones hit two-out double and Cruz singled him home.

I think the biggest thing is that were playing as a team, said Johnson. Thats the great thing about the guys in this locker room.

The Canadiens drew first blood in this game on Weises fifth goal of the season at 15:07 of the first period, but the Lightning scored four times in the second to take control of the contest.

LONDON - Saido Berahino was rewarded for his prolific form for West Bromwich Albion by earning a first call-up by England on Thursday, while winger Theo Walcott is back despite playing only 10 minutes for Arsenal after a 10-month injury absence. Matt Belisle Jersey .There were also recalls for midfielders Ross Barkley, Stewart Downing and Michael Carrick ahead of Englands European Championship qualifier at home to Slovenia on Nov. 15 and a friendly against neighbour Scotland in Glasgow three days later.Captain Wayne Rooney was included in a 26-man squad and is set to make his 100th appearance for England against Slovenia.The Burundi-born Berahino is the top-scoring English player in the Premier League with seven goals in 10 matches, and his goals have also helped Englands under-21 team into next summers European Championship.England manager Roy Hodgson said he only hadnt called up Berahino earlier because of his importance to the under-21s.Theres no reason to pass over his credentials yet again, Hodgson said. Im sure Saido will come wanting to play, but he faces stiff competition and he understands that. Hes not just there for the learning process.Walcott only returned to action last weekend from damaged cruciate knee ligaments after careful rehabilitation at Arsenal. Hodgson sees Walcott as a key member of his attack but may not select him in the upcoming games.He is continuing with a fitness program that we will have to make certain that we do during the time he is with us, Hodgson said. We have given him and his club the guarantee that we will do that. (Arsenal manager) Arsene (Wenger) is happy for us to take him.Daniel Sturridge — Rooneys first-choice partner up front — is still missing with a calf injury and Hodgson never entertained the idea of selecting the striker after a call to Liverpool enquiring about Sturridges fitness wasnt returned by manager Brendan Rodgers.Ive left a message for Brendan — the message was that its pretty obvious that (Sturridge) is not fit, Hodgson said, and Brendans not rung back to counter that he actually is.Liverpool right back Glen Johnson was overlooked, perhaps signalling the end of his international career with Hodgson preferring youngsters Calum Chambers and Nathaniel Clyne.England is top of Group E in qualifying for Euro 2016 after opening with three straight wins. Slovenia is second on six points.___England:Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion), Joe Hart (Manchester City).Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Calum Chambers (Arsenal), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling (both Manchester United).Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Everton), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Stewart Downing (West Ham), Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana (both Liverpool), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Tottenham), Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott (both Arsenal).Forwards: Rickie Lambert (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Welbeck (Arsenal), Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion). Jim Thome Jersey . - Vince Wilfork has played only two career games in Kansas City. Francisco Lindor Jersey . Head of clinic Josef Obrist tells the Austria Press Agency on Thursday that Morgenstern "is doing surprisingly well. ... He still has a memory gap but thats nothing unusual." Morgenstern has moved to a rehabilitation clinic in Klagenfurt for further recovery.Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino intends to withdraw his name from a lawsuit against the NFL for concussions, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. A report in the Los Angeles Times on Monday had Marino, along with 14 other players, linked to the lawsuit. But according to the Sun Sentinel, Marino and his lawyers will be in discussions to withdraw his name. "It was never Marinos intention to initiate litigation in this case, but to ensure that in the event he had adverse health consequences down the road, he would be covered with health benefits. They are working to correct tthe error," a source said to the Sun-Sentinel. Satchel Paige Jersey. Marino has said in the past he had two reported concussions during his 17-year career. Nearly 5,000 other former players have alleged the NFL misled them about the long-term dangers of concussions. The NFL has denied those claims. The lawsuit doesnt specify any medical problems suffered by the plaintiffs. It seeks unspecified damages and medical monitoring. The NFL and the original group of players agreed on a $765 million settlement last August.

An eventful night for Boston’s star centre, improved goaltending in Carolina and continued goalie trouble for New Jersey; Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. Leon Draisaitl Jersey . HEROES Patrice Bergeron – Boston’s ace two-way pivot had a goal and two assists in Boston’s 4-2 win over New Jersey. It was an eventful night for Bergeron, whose line matched against the Devils’ top unit of Mike Cammalleri, Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr, which scored both of New Jersey’s goals. It’s been an interesting start to the season for Bergeron. He continues to be a top-notch possession player (58.2%) and, with six points on a four-game streak, is now scoring points (12 points in 16 games, 0.75 per game) and generating shots (3.06 per game) at similar rates to previous years but, even with David Krejci missing time with injuries, Bergeron is playing just 17:06 per game, his lowest average ice time since his rookie season, 2003-2004. Justin Faulk – The Hurricanes defenceman recorded a goal and two assists in a 4-1 win against Calgary, giving him eight points in the past six games. Oh, and some smart guy said to keep an eye on him. Cam Ward – The Hurricanes goaltender Stopped 22 of 23 Flames shots in a 4-1 win, raising – raising! – his save percentage to .900 for the season. A long way from his best years, Ward has fallen on hard times in recent seasons, his .901 save percentage ranking 36th of 37 goaltenders that have played at least 50 games since the start of the 2012-2013 season. (As Travis Yost points out today, Ward has faced a lot of high-quality shots so far this season.) ZEROES Cory Schneider – Gave up four goals on 23 shots, the third straight start in which he’s surrendered four goals and the adjustment to unquestioned number one goaltender in New Jersey has not been smooth. From 2010-2011 through last season, Schneider had a .928 save percentage, the best in the league among goaltenders with at least 50 games played, so falling to a .901 save percentage through 15 games does suggest that his heavy workload (which includes a league-leading 841 minutes) is requiring some adjustment. Sean Monahan – One shot attempt (missed the net) in 17:59 at Carolina, finishing with 40.6% of the shot attempts (13 for, 19 against) at even strength. While Monahan’s line fared well in their primary matchup (against the line of LW Nathan Gerbe, C Riley Nash and RW Elias Lindholm), earning two-thirds of the shot share, he was buried otherwise, with five for and 15 against (25.0%) in all other matchups. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Mike Cammalleri – The Devils left winger recorded a pair of assists in his first game in more than two weeks, skating on New Jersey’s top line with C Travis Zajac and RW Jaromir Jagr. Torey Krug – The Boston blueliner returned to action, after missing a couple weeks with a broken finger and played 21:16 for the Bruins, second-highest ice time on the team. SHORT SHIFTS C Travis Zajac had a goal and an assist, snapping an 11-game goalless streak. It was Zajac’s first multi-point game of the season…Bruins RW Reilly Smith put up a goal and an assist for the second straight game…Hurricanes LW Jeff Skinner contributed a goal and an assist, had 11 shot attempts (7 SOG) and was Carolina’s best at driving play (24 shot attempts for, 12 against, 66.7%). After playing a season-low 11:12 against Columbus a week ago, it appears Skinner has escaped the doghouse. FIRSTS Max Reinhart – The 22-year-old centre played 10:52 in Carolina Monday, becoming the third Reinhart brother to lace the skates in an NHL game this year. FANTASY FOCUS A handful of players in action tonight that are worth considering for your lineup: Gabriel Landeskog – The Avalanche captain has one point in the past five games, but is still generating chances, with 19 shots on goal, including a season-high seven last game at Philadelphia. Mats Zuccarello – Now that Derek Stepan is back in the Rangers lineup, Zuccarello has a more stable line and already has five points in the past five games after starting the year with one point in his first seven games. Cam Atkinson – Has one point in the past four games, but 22 shots on goal, including nine against Tampa Bay Saturday. Skating on Ryan Johansen’s wing still means scoring chances and Atkinson is due to bury some. Nail Yakupov – The Oilers winger has only two goals on the season, one in the past 13 games, but he’s consistently generating shots – 28 in the past seven games – so he’s due to find the net soon. Mike Hoffman – It’s a little soon to recommend Hoffman, who is still battling for ice time in Ottawa, but even in limited ice time, he’s the best on the team at getting shots on goal. He has three goals in the past three games and 16 shots on goal in the past four.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the deal will pay Schenn $2.25 million in the first year and $2.75 million in the second year. In 82 games with the Flyers in 2013-14, Schenn scored 20 goals and added 21 assists. Bill Ranford Jersey . It has been eleven years, eight months, and 261 days since I played my last CFL game.Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will miss next Sundays Pro Bowl because of the quadriceps injury that hampered him down the stretch, according to the Denver Post. Its a great honor to be selected to the Pro Bowl, and Ive always taken the obligation to play in it very seriously, Manning told the paper. Ive believed that, if healthy, its a players responsibility to play in the game because of what it means to be voted in by your peers and the fans. Im disappointed that Im jusst not healthy enough this year to be part of it. Esa Tikkanen Jersey. Its going to be tough not being down there with the other guys, but it hasnt had enough time to heal. Manning suffered the injury in Denvers Dec. 14 victory over the San Diego Chargers. He was 26-of-46 for 211 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional playoffs last week.

NEW YORK -- Ichiro Suzuki was overwhelmed by the outpouring of appreciation he received from the Yankees after he got his 4,000th hit between the major leagues and Japan in the first inning. Richard Panik Jersey . The celebration after Alfonso Sorianos tiebreaking homer in the eighth was pretty nice, too. Soriano connected off R.A. Dickey with two outs in the eighth inning Wednesday night, lifting New York to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays for Torontos 12th straight loss at Yankee Stadium. "Its unbelievable, 4,000 hits," Soriano said of Suzukis milestone. "To get 4,000 hits, you have to be a great hitter." The 39-year-old Suzuki hit a liner off Dickey (9-12) that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie for the milestone hit. Pete Rose with 4,256 hits and Ty Cobb with 4,191 are the only two players that have reached the number solely in the major leagues. Suzuki broke a tie with Lou Gehrig when he got his 2,722nd major league hit in his 13th season. The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japans Pacific League. Suzukis teammates streamed out of the dugout and surrounded him at first base, Curtis Granderson giving him the first hug. A grinning Suzuki then faced the cheering fans and bowed, tipping his helmet. He bowed several more times, the last one toward the Blue Jays dugout. "When my teammates came out to first base it was very special, and to see the fans," Suzuki said. "I wasnt expecting so much joy and happiness from them and thats what made it very special tonight." When he went to his position in right field for the second inning, Suzuki tipped his cap to fans who greeted him with a standing ovation. "You never want to be the guy that gives up the milestone," Dickey said. "That being said, what an incredible achievement. The manner that hes done it is equally impressive. Just the longevity, the endurance, the durability. Having played with him in Seattle, it was a real treat to play with him and it couldnt have happened to a more professional hitter." Ken Griffey Jr., a former teammate with the Seattle Mariners, congratulated Suzuki with a message shown on the video board at Yankee Stadium. Suzukis postgame news conference with the Japanese media lasted a whopping 47 minutes. Soriano has played a big role in the Yankees recent surge in which they have won 10 of 13. He had hit six homers and drove in 19 runs over a six-game stretch. But he was 0 for 17 before connecting off the knuckleballer in the eighth for the 4-2 lead. "I like to hit knuckleballs," Soriano said. "The whole game, he had been throwing me knuckleballs, good ones, a lot of movement. Finally, the last one I got a good one to hit." David Huff (1-0) pitched one-hit ball in five innings of relief to shut down the Blue Jays before New York finally got to Dickey. Yankees infielder Jayson Nix broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in the second inning. On Tuesday, he hit a tying homer and had a walk-off single in the ninth to help New York secure a doubleheader sweep. "I feel terrible," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "After a great day for him yesterday and what hes meant to our club this year playing so much shortstop in the absence of Jete (Derek Jeter) and Nuni (Eduardo Nunez) going down. This is a guy that just does things right. Adam Warren started for New York to give 41-year-old Andy Pettitte one more day after the Yankees stayed on rotation for their doubleheader Tuesday. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings, including Josh Tholes tying homer in the fourth. It was Tholes first homer with the Blue Jays. Huff relieved and didnt allow a hit until Lawrie led off the eighth with an infield single. Huff walked four, one intentionally, but never was in real trouble. "A lot of that lineup was down in (Triple-A) Buffalo when I was down in Scranton," Huff said. "I got to face them and got a good feel for them." Toronto left at least one runner on base in each of the first eight innings and was 2 for 15 with runners on base. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth and earned his 37th save after working both games of New Yorks doubleheader sweep Tuesday. He gave up a one-out double to Rajai Davis, but picked him off second, and then struck out Edwin Encarnacion looking to end the game. Dickey overcame a rough start, giving up four hits in the first three innings and putting a runner in scoring position with a wild pitch before settling in with his knuckleball in ideal hot conditions. He struck out nine and gave up six hits. But after retiring 14 of 15, he allowed a two-out single to Robinson Cano. Soriano followed by connecting for the 28th homer off Dickey this year, a career high. "Its frustrating. Its like the Twilight Zone. Different day, same script," Dickey said. "Its really a very fluky kind of feeling." Thole, who caught Dickey throughout much of his NL Cy Young Award season with the New York Mets last year, had two passed balls in the first inning, but the Yankees failed to score. In the second, Eduardo Nunez singled and stole second. Dickeys wild pitch sent Nunez to third, and Austin Romines sacrifice fly tied it at 1. Munenori Kawasaki had given Toronto the early lead with an RBI single in the top half. The Blue Jays have led in each of the three games in this series and lost all three. They have dropped nine in a row against New York. Granderson had a two-out RBI single in the third. NOTES: Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was given the night off. ... Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes was ejected in the second inning after he tossed his helmet in the direction of home plate umpire Ted Barrett. Reyes had a brief heated discussion with Barrett following a called third strike. ... The Blue Jays recalled OF Moises Sierra from Triple-A Buffalo to take Jose Bautistas spot on the roster. Bautista was placed on the DL with a bone bruise in his left hip after Tuesdays doubleheader. ... Jeter (strained right calf) is scheduled to start a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Scranton. Derek Stepan Jersey .com) - Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mat Latos had an arthroscopic procedure performed on his right elbow last week, the teams official site reported Wednesday. Custom Arizona Coyotes Jerseys . -- Jerel Worthy and his Michigan State teammates charged across the field, holding four fingers in the air while celebrating another sweet victory over their biggest rival. DURHAM, N.C. -- Theyll remember the OT from the first Syracuse-Duke game -- and the Ts that decided Round 2. The rematch of one of college basketballs best games of the season ended with Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim ejected after he charged onto the court to argue a block/charge call. Rodney Hood scored 13 points and drew that game-changing charging call, which helped No. 5 Duke beat No. 1 Syracuse 66-60 on Saturday night. "I just thought that was the worst call of the year, thats all," Boeheim said. "I hated to see the game decided on that call." Freshman Jabari Parker had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). Jerami Grant had 17 points and C.J. Fair, the player who was called for the charge, finished with 13 for the Orange (25-2, 12-2). The first meeting between these teams was an overtime game considered an instant classic and won by Syracuse. The rematch was just as close but it will be remembered more for Boeheims exit with about 10 seconds to play. "Both teams were worthy of winning this game, and both teams were worthy of winning up there," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "So going 1-1 was probably the way it should be." Syracuse had the ball down 60-58 when Fair drove for an apparent tying layup. But official Tony Greene whistled Fair for charging -- and Boeheim shot onto the court to argue. Greene slapped him with two technical fouls and ejected him. "People will remember this one for 30 years because the old coach went out there and got a little excited," Boeheim said. "I think the fans will remember Jim Boeheim down here. Two great games." Quinn Cook iced it by hitting three free throws with 10.4 seconds left to make it 63-58. That helped the Blue Devils bounce back from a loss to hated rival North Carolina less than 48 hours earlier. It meant they avoided their first regular-season losing streak since 2009 and it extended their winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium to 31 games. "Thats the way its going to be in the ACC tournament and then the NCAA," Parker said. "Weve got to play back-to-back competitive games, but I think were going to get used to it." Meanwhile, the Orange -- whose 25-0 start was spoiled three nights earlier by an overtime loss at home to sub-.500 Boston College -- are the first top-ranked team to lose twice in a week since Texas in 2010. "I dont think well probably play anymore," Boeheim said, his words laced with sarcasm. "I think well just give up." It was Dukes ninth win over a No. 1-ranked team and first since 1997. Star freshman Tyler Ennis of Brampton, Ont., finished with nine points on 2-of-13 shooting and he and fellow starting guard Trevor Cooney combined to miss all five of theiir 3-point attempts for the Orange. Clayton Keller Jersey. . Three times in the final 90 seconds, they had the ball down by three or fewer points -- but all anyone will remember is that drive by Fair. He blew past Tyler Thornton along the left baseline and -- as Hood slid over to cut him off -- he flipped up a shot that banked in. Greene blew his whistle and waved it off to call Fair for charging. "Regardless of whether they called a block or a charge, I was going to be there and help Tyler out," Hood said. "I honestly didnt know (what the call would be). ... I thought I was there the whole time, but you never know." That brought an incensed Boeheim off the bench and well onto the court to argue. Once he was tossed, the game was effectively over. "I think maybe (if) we didnt get the techs, we probably still had a chance to win," Fair said. This one always seemed destined for a tight finish, even after Duke appeared to take control down the stretch. The Blue Devils scored on six consecutive possessions, keyed by Cooks 3-pointer that pushed the lead to 53-47 with just under 7 minutes left. Three trips later, Parker soared to dunk the rebound of Hoods missed 3 -- which restored the Blue Devils six-point lead and sent the Cameron Crazies into earsplitting delirium. But Ennis followed with a layup and Grant hit a jumper in transition, and things stayed tight until those technical fouls. The game again matched the two winningest mens coaches in Division I history in Hall of Famers Krzyzewski and Boeheim -- who, by the end of the night, combined for 1,924 victories. Round 1 went to Boeheim earlier this month in a game for the ages, with the Orange claiming a 91-89 victory in overtime after Dukes Rasheed Sulaimon hit a buzzer-beating, tying 3 at the end of regulation before 35,446 fans at the Carrier Dome. There were about one-quarter of that many at 9,314-seat Cameron -- but the 74-year-old building rocked all night with a ferocity usually reserved for the annual visit from North Carolina. "Another great game. Different from the first one because it seemed like both teams were scoring easy up in Syracuse, and today it was really difficult to score," Krzyzewski said. "I dont know how either team could play any harder." And from the opening tip, this one felt like a continuation of that OT thriller -- with players from both sides turning in highlight-reel plays, from Marshall Plumlees vicious dunk of a missed 3 by Sulaimon, to Ennis emphatic block of a layup by Cook. Syracuse maxed out its lead at nine on a 3-pointer by Duke transfer Michael Gbinije midway through the first half. The Blue Devils rallied to tie it at 26 at the break on Sulaimons fast-break layup with about a minute left, and it stayed tense the rest of the way. Cheap Bruins Jerseys Wholesale Sabres Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Panthers Jerseys Cheap Canadiens Jerseys Cheap Senators Jerseys Cheap Lightning Jerseys Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Wholesale Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Devils Jerseys Cheap Islanders Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Online Cheap Flyers Jerseys Online Cheap Penguins Jerseys Wholesale Capitals Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Stitched Avalanche JerseysCheap Stars Jerseys Authentic Cheap Wild Jerseys Authentic Predators Jerseys China Cheap Stitched Blues Jerseys Cheap Jets Jerseys Cheap Ducks Jerseys Authentic Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Golden Knights Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Kings Jerseys China Cheap Sharks Jerseys Cheap Canucks Jerseys ' ' '

OAKLAND, Calif. Kemoko Turay Colts Jersey . -- Scott Kazmir will have to wait at least one more day to make his debut for the Oakland Athletics and pitch against his former team. Its not exactly the kind of doubleheader he had planned. The game between the As and Cleveland Indians was postponed because of rain Tuesday night. It was the first rainout in Oakland since May 5, 1998. "I think Kaz brought all the rain with him. You can blame it on him," said right-hander Corey Kluber, the Indians scheduled starter. The game will be made up in a day-night doubleheader Wednesday. The first game is scheduled to start at 12:35 p.m. PDT and the second game at 6 p.m. PDT. Kazmir and Kluber will start the opener. Zach McAllister will take the mound for the Indians in the second game, while As manager Bob Melvin said his starter is "to be announced." Jesse Chavez had been scheduled to start for the As Wednesday, but Melvin said he will likely push him back until Thursday -- and move the rest of his rotation back one day. Teams are allowed to add a 26th man to the 25-man roster for day-night doubleheaders, so Oakland could call-up a pitcher from Triple-A Sacramento to make the start. Cleveland beat the As 2-0 in Monday nights season opener, which was played between rain storms that have soaked the San Francisco Bay Area this week. The Indians have Thursday off before hosting Minnesota in its home opener Friday in Cleveland, and the As open a four-game series against Seattle on Thursday in Oakland. The forecast for Wednesday was for a high of 61 degrees and a 10 per cent chance of rain. "I kind of like day games," Kazmir said. "Just throughout my career, I dont know, I just like it -- get up in the morning and go right to it." The 19th rainout in Oakland history, including the post-season, covered the Coliseum with so much water so early that officials postponed the game about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch. A couple dozen grounds crew workers carried large brooms to sweep water off the tarp all afternoon. Some Indians players briefly came out to right field to go through some warm-ups during a brief break in the rain -- then quickly scrambled back to the clubhouse when another band of rain began falling. With no fans inside the spacious Coliseum, Kazmir played catch for about 15 minutes in a covered section of the upper-deck concourse near the concessions after officials postponed the game. "I was ready to pitch today. You cant let your guard down. I was ready to go." Kazmir said. "What can you do? Be ready to go early, thats all you can do." Kazmir has waited all winter to make his As debut. He signed a two-year, $22 million contract with Oakland as a free agent after spending last year with Cleveland. He went 10-9 for the Indians last season on a one-year, $1 million contract. Kazmir struck out 162 in 158 innings and had a 4.04 ERA over 29 starts, rediscovering his groove and the zip on his fastball. Indians manager Terry Francona saw Kazmirs renaissance firsthand. While Kazmir knows the tendencies of Clevelands hitters, Francona said the Indians also know what Kazmir wants to do as well. "I dont think anybody really has the advantage," Francona said. "The pitcher holds the ball, so the first advantage always goes to him. But what we do with it is up to us. Hes good. We think hes pretty good. But our job is to beat him now." NOTES: Francona said he moved switch-hitting SS Asdrubal Cabrera into the leadoff spot Tuesday because he wanted to keep everybody in their normal spot in the order while Michael Bourn is out with a strained left hamstring. Lefty Nyjer Morgan started Mondays opener, but with the left-handed Kazmir on the mound, Francona opted to go with Cabrera. ... Melvin said As starter Sonny Grays right ankle is fine after a comebacker from Cabrera hit off the pitchers right ankle Monday night. ... As OF Craig Gentry is not with the team because his wife is having an induced labour soon. He will be held out of rehabilitation work on his strained back for a few days.

Inter also hit the woodwork twice as it moved into fourth spot, two points above Fiorentina which hosts relegation-threatened Chievo Verona on Sunday. Hellas Verona remained seventh, and was seven points behind Inter after just one win in its past six matches. "It was a very important win because now they will stay behind us in the race for a Europa League spot," Jonathan said. "Now we have to be careful of Parma, too. Tomorrow I will certainly be against Fiorentina. "I dont think its my best match in an Inter shirt, Ive played in others better. The squad deserved the win and lets hope we continue like this.

" The result also sparked hopes Inter could snatch a Champions League spot. It moved eight points behind third-place Napoli, which visits Torino on Monday. Inter took the lead in the 14th minute following Jonathans mazy run and cross, which Rodrigo Palacio slotted home from close range. Jonathan sealed the result after an hour in. He burst into the right of the area and although his initial effort was saved, the rebound came back to the Brazilian defender off a Verona player and he scored.

Hellas Verona remained seventh, and was seven points behind Inter after just one win in its past six matches. "It was a very important win because now they will stay behind us in the race for a Europa League spot," Jonathan said. "Now we have to be careful of Parma, too. Tomorrow I will certainly be against Fiorentina. "I dont think its my best match in an Inter shirt, Ive played in others better. The squad deserved the win and lets hope we continue like this. (Inter cooach Walter) Mazzarri always told us that our negative run would end with hard work, now we shouldnt look at the standings but only at the next match. Custom Colts Jerseys.
