Mark Buehrle set the tone to what has been a dominating start to the season with a near-shutout victory over Tampa Bay back in early April. The veteran will now shoot for his Major League-leading ninth victory of the campaign against the club as the Toronto Blue Jays play the middle contest of a three-game set on Tuesday night versus the Rays. Buehrle went 12-10 in 33 starts with the Blue Jays last season, posting a 4.15 earned run average in his first season with the franchise. However, he has appeared more comfortable in 2014, going 8-1 through 10 starts with a 2.16 ERA. He has not allowed more than two runs in nine of those outings and at 35 years of age is the oldest pitcher to win at least eight of his first 10 starts since both Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling went 8-1 in 2002 with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Buehrles season began with a victory over Tampa Bay on April 2, when he struck out a season-high 11 batters over 8 2/3 scoreless innings. That improved the hurler to 9-5 with a 4.21 ERA in 23 career meetings with the Rays, 18 of those starts. The left-handed Buehrle has won four straight decisions since suffering his only loss of the season on April 25 versus Boston. He got revenge for that setback last time out on Thursday, limiting the Red Sox to a pair of runs over seven frames of a 7-2 win. In the process, he became baseballs first eight-game winner and only St. Louis Adam Wainwright has been able to join him since. "Its nice, obviously," Buehrle said. "I try to throw it out the window and get ready for my next start." Buehrle should have some room to work with tonight if the Blue Jays can continue their hot hitting. Toronto went deep three times in Mondays 10-5 series-opening win, giving the club a homer in nine straight games and an MLB- high 73 home runs on the season. Edwin Encarnacion hit a solo homer versus the Rays and has hit nine homers over his last 11 games. He has also gone deep 13 times in May, breaking Jose Bautistas 2010 club record for most homers in the month. Dioner Navarro and Steve Tolleson hit consecutive home runs in the fourth inning in Torontos seventh straight victory and 10th in its past 11 games. That bailed out starter Drew Hutchison, who got the win despite giving up five runs over five innings. "Nothing was good, nothing was sharp," Hutchison said. The Rays had a four-game winning streak snapped despite getting home runs from Desmond Jennings, James Loney and David DeJesus as starter Erik Bedard yielded eight runs and 13 hits in four-plus frames. "They just put the heavy gloves on and beat us up tonight," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. That kind of output could be enough to win tonight given Alex Cobbs current 21 2/3 scoreless-innings streak he carries into this start. That run is the third-longest in team history, behind Matt Moores 22 1/3-inning stretch last season and James Shields club-record mark of 23 consecutive innings set in 2011. Cobb has not allowed a run since giving up four over five innings of a loss to Toronto on April 1 in his first start of the season, dropping to 2-1 lifetime with a 2.95 ERA versus Toronto. The 26-year-old followed up that loss to the Blue Jays with consecutive scoreless outings before a trip to the disabled list caused by a left oblique strain. He returned to action for the first time in nearly six weeks on Thursday and shut out Oakland over 6 2/3 innings, scattering three hits and two walks while fanning six in a no-decision. "He was outstanding," said Maddon of Cobb, who is 1-1 with a 1.40 ERA on the year. "Having been off as long as he had, you saw the stuff, the strike throwing, the competitive nature." The Blue Jays have won three of five versus the Rays this season. http://www.officialnflcardinalsgear.com/mike-iupati-jersey/. Bayern led second-place Leverkusen by 10 points with a game in hand, while Dortmund was another four points off the pace. Freiburg midfielder Felix Klaus scored in the last minute as his side twice came from behind to climb provisionally out of the relegation zone. http://www.officialnflcardinalsgear.com/deone-bucannon-jersey/.com) - The Winnipeg Jets got over one hurdle by snapping their longest losing streak of the season. http://www.officialnflcardinalsgear.com/jared-veldheer-jersey/. Former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds made his longshot request of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit upheld Bonds conviction in September. http://www.officialnflcardinalsgear.com/customized/. The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta. Seitzer replaces Greg Walker, who was assisted by Scott Fletcher this season as the Braves finished 79-83. http://www.officialnflcardinalsgear.com/tony-jefferson-jersey/. -- Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno was admitted to the hospital Friday for observation due to minor complications from cancer treatments, his family said.In the last two Grey Cups one of the two teams was also the events host, and that team came out victorious in both contests. Can the Saskatchewan Roughriders be the third consecutive team to play for the Championship in their own stadium, or will the Calgary Stampeders punch a ticket to their second straight Grey Cup? The Stamps won all but one of their contests at home in McMahon Stadium (a Week 13 loss to the Toronto Argonauts). In their three matchups against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Calgary won both of their home games. As challenging as it may seem, can the Riders overcome the odds and pull off the road upset? To win this game on the road Saskatchewan must limit the opportunities of Jon Cornish, the Western Division nominee for the CFLs Most Outstanding Player for the second time in as many years. The Riders need to dominate the ball-control game. They come to battle with a quality ground game of their own with Kory Sheets who comes into the game with as many 100-yard games as Cornish (12) impressive, considering that he played in two less games. Sheets (1598) finished second to Cornish (1813) in regular season rushing yardage. Saskatchewan displayed an efficient running performance last Sunday against the B.C. Lions, with the bulk of the team rushing yards (170) coming from quarterback Darian Durant (97). His effort included scampering for a clutch 35-yard run in the fourth quarter that brought the team into scoring range and converted into a 10-yard touchdown pass to Weston Dressler two plays later. A dual-threat at quarterback, Durant can not only pick apart a defence through the air (4,154 yards) but he also gained 369 yards on 8.8 yards per rush this season. Along with Sheets, who totaled 133 yards on 26 carries in Saskatchewans lone victory over Calgary (Week 2, 36-21), the pairing should be able to chew up yards and keepp the clock moving.dddddddddddd. This strategy can keep Cornish on the sideline and away from producing evident from his 42 yards on eight carries in that Week 2 game.That task is easier said than done however. For Cornish, playing in front of the Calgary faithful has been somewhat of a motivating tool in his last three home appearances, gaining a total 447 yards, including a bruising 109 against the Riders in the Week 18s thrilling 29-25 victory. Coming off a weeks rest Can Cornish keep up the solid work?The quarterback situation in Calgary has been somewhat adverse with Kevin Glenn, Bo Levi Mitchell, and Drew Tate all doing quality jobs with their opportunities, but like last seasons playoff run Glenn will start and look to play well enough to keep the young promising pivots Tate and/or Mitchell on the sideline. Calgarys key is to allow Cornish to take the pressure off of the passers, who will be without standout receiver Marquay McDaniel, who they lost to an ankle injury. It is unknown if Stamps star receiver Nik Lewis will play, but he surprised many by returning to practice on Thursday. In the case that the Stamps are without Lewis, Joe West, Brad Sinopoli and Maurice Price could be expected return from injuries, joining Jeff Fuller, the teams late sensation and Jabari Arthur providing the interesting passing platoon a few more able pairs of mitts. If the Argos and Lions have proved anything in 2011 and 2012, its that one shouldnt bet against a team playing before their fans in the Grey Cup. Its the getting there however that will be the biggest challenge for Rider Nation to sit through in 2013. Who is going to win the Western Division Final to get to the 101st Grey Cup? Can Calgary make it there for their second time in a row, or can Saskatchewan continue the hometown championship trend?As always, Its Your! Call. Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
