TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays relied on their big bats in the first two games of their nine-game homestand. Bruce Smith Jersey . The power game was minimized Friday and it proved costly in a 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels that ended Torontos season-high five-game winning streak. Angels leadoff man Erick Aybar tripled to open the ninth inning and scored the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly from Raul Ibanez. Ernesto Frieri earned his fourth save to end a choppy, mistake-filled game that at times was not pretty to watch. Torontos bullpen struggled after a five-inning effort from starter Dustin McGowan. Sergio Santos left the game in the seventh with the bases loaded and Steve Delabar followed by walking in a run. Brett Cecil (0-3) was uneven in the ninth as the Blue Jays fell back to the .500 mark. "Thats where weve struggled this year -- throwing strikes out of the bullpen," said Toronto manager John Gibbons. "If they beat you, make them hit it to beat you." Toronto (18-18) pumped out 22 runs over its two-game mini-sweep of Philadelphia leading into the opener of a four-game series against the Angels. The Blue Jays scratched out runs where they could on this night, scoring twice on wild pitches and getting another run on a Jose Reyes solo homer. McGowan was hit and miss on the mound and did well to escape with just two earned runs allowed. Santos breezed through the sixth inning but gave up a one-out double to Aybar in the seventh. Aybar moved to third on a groundout and after an intentional walk to Albert Pujols and another walk to Ibanez, Delabar threw four straight balls to Howie Kendrick that were well out of the zone. "It was one of those days where I thought it was right there," Delabar said. "When I released the ball, I thought it was in the zone but it was nowhere close." Mike Trout hit his seventh homer of the season for Los Angeles (17-17). Aybar, meanwhile, was 3 for 5 and is hitting .397 over his last 15 games. "Hes swinging the bat nice, he has confidence up there," said acting Angels manager Dino Ebel. "Hes putting good wood on it and he wants to be the guy ... hats off to him getting that big triple there in the ninth inning." Reyes had three hits and scored twice for the Blue Jays, who were outhit 9-7 in front of 21,383 spectators under the roof at Rogers Centre. Los Angeles starter Garrett Richards was wild at times but turned in a solid performance overall, allowing five hits, two earned runs and two walks while striking out six. "Richards is one of the best young pitchers in the game," Gibbons said. "He can overpower you. He shut down a pretty offence too tonight. So that was the key there. "We were in a position to win, we just didnt win it." Richards second wild pitch in the first inning allowed Reyes to open the scoring. Trout gave the Angels a 2-1 lead with his solo shot in the third inning but another wild pitch from Richards allowed Melky Cabrera to tie the game in the bottom half of the frame. The Angels nearly went ahead when McGowan fired a wild pitch of his own with two outs in the fifth inning. The ball bounced back toward catcher Dioner Navarro, who tagged Ibanezs leg as he slid at home plate. Umpire Angel Hernandez ruled him safe but Gibbons challenged the call and the decision was reversed to end the inning. Reliever Joe Smith (2-0) replaced Richards in the eighth and Reyes greeted him by lashing a pitch that barely cleared the wall in right field. It was the third home run of the year for the Toronto shortstop, who has struggled to find a groove after missing time with a hamstring problem last month. "He looks back," Gibbons said. "Hes feeling good, hes bouncing around. He got off to a slow start with the bat but its coming. He can do so many things." The Blue Jays put the potential go-ahead run at second base later in the eighth but Juan Francisco struck out to keep the game tied. Notes: Ebel, the Angels bench coach, will also serve as skipper on Saturday as regular manager Mike Scioscia is away at his daughters college graduation. ...

"I dont know where we would be without him," McClendon said. "Hes done a tremendous job for us and (Wednesday) was no different." Logan Morrison drove in two runs in Seattles big sixth inning, Young pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners beat the Houston Astros 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Jordan Poyer Jersey . As they are wont to do, the Spurs made things real easy. The Spurs signed Parker to a multi-year contract extension on Friday, ensuring that the six-time All-Star point guard will be in the fold whether Duncan and Ginobili are able to continue their careers or not. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-3...ersey.aspx . It was just time for him to make a big play. Nicolas Batum had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Wesley Matthews scored 18 points, and the Trail Blazers overcame poor-shooting nights by two of their best players in a 94-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday.OAKLAND, Calif. - The Golden State Warriors too often let lesser competition keep games close — and allowed a few of them to slip away — on their home court last season.That doesnt appear to be a problem anymore.The Warriors eased past the struggling Sacramento Kings 128-108 on Monday night, the kind of all-around performance that has defined their strong start under new coach Steve Kerr.All 13 active players scored, including six in double digits. The reserves had a season-high 62 points. And the team totalled 36 assists, the franchises most in four years.These are the fun games when everybody gets in there and scores and feels good afterward, Kerr said.There have been a lot of those for Golden State already.Klay Thompson scored 25 points, reserve Justin Holiday had 18 and Festus Ezeli added a career-high 15 points to go with six rebounds in place of injured centre Andrew Bogut, helping the Warriors hold a big lead most of the way.Stephen Curry also had 12 points and 11 assists — and got to rest most of the fourth quarter — as Golden State stretched its NBA-best record to 23-3.We have to learn to share the ball better, the way they do. We have to move it side to side, like they do, said Kings forward Omri Casspi, who had 16 points and eight rebounds.DeMarcus Cousins had 22 points and eight rebounds, and Darren Collison scored 17 points in Sacramentos latest blowout loss to its Northern California rival. The Warriors whipped the Kings 95-77 on opening night in Sacramento and have won six consecutive games in the series, including all four last season.Sacramento has lost 11 of 14 games, a slide that started when Cousins came down with viral meningitis and missed 10 games. The Kings also fired Michael Malone as coach last week, and uncertainty about how long interim coach Tyrone Corbin will man the sidelines has lingered since.We all need to stick together, Corbin said.The Warriors got off to a fast start and controlled the game by doing what they have most of the sseason: clog the paint on defence, push the pace and move the ball. Dion Dawkins Jersey. .They led 36-20 at the end of the first quarter, 76-53 early in the third and — except for a few short-lived surges by Sacramento — kept a comfortable cushion throughout.Perhaps just as important for the Warriors was the return of David Lee, who played for only the second time this season and first since Nov. 5. He had six points on 3-for-9 shooting and seven rebounds in 16 minutes, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd when he entered as a reserve late in the first quarter.Lee admitted he felt some nerves returning to a team that has done so well without him.I was definitely the most excited guy in the NBA to play basketball tonight, Lee said. I havent been nervous for a game in five years.Lee had been out recovering from a strained left hamstring, which forced him to leave after 6 1/2 minutes in his previous appearance against the Los Angeles Clippers. Kerr said the two-time All-Star forward responded well to conversations about coming off the bench, which Lee confirmed.Draymond Green has played exceptional as the starter, and Kerr sees no reason to change what has worked — which has been just about everything this season.___TIP-INSKings: Sacramento had 31 assists and 13 turnovers. ... Sacramento dropped to 10-8 with Cousins in the lineup this season.Warriors: Bogut underwent a second platelet-rich plasma therapy over the weekend on his right knee. He will likely be out at least another week or two. ... It was the most assists for the Warriors since dishing out 36 in a 132-102 win over the Clippers on Feb. 10, 2010.SUPRISE REUNIONStaff Sgt. Nikki Castle was reunited with her young son, Makio Cabales, between the first and second quarter on the court.
