WINNIPEG - A first court appearance for a Winnipeg city councillor and former NHL player accused of domestic violence has been put over for three weeks. A lawyer appearing on behalf of former Winnipeg Jet Thomas Steen asked for the case to be put over to July 14. Steen, who is facing two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats, did not appear in court. He took a brief absence from council when the charges were first laid but has since returned. Steen has removed himself from the Winnipeg Police Board while the charges make their way through the courts. He is accused of assaulting a woman at a Winnipeg restaurant May 1, and has been released on conditions that he not contact the alleged victim and abstain from alcohol and other intoxicants.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have used their big bats to power their way to victories over their nine-game winning streak. On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line. Reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo threw wide to first and Pillar came all the way around to score to give the Blue Jays a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay and their first walk-off win of the season. "Its not every day youre going to come out and score 10 runs," said Toronto infielder Steve Tolleson. "Sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail to win. The guys today really showed that and thats why we pulled through." Toronto opened the series with a 10-5 win and followed with a 9-6 victory a night later. On Wednesday, in what was likely the Blue Jays finest defensive effort of the year, Toronto stifled Tampa Bay all over the diamond. After both teams scored a pair of early runs, Gose made an all-world catch against the centre-field wall in the third inning to keep the game tied. In the sixth, Melky Cabrera offered a highlight-reel moment of his own with a great leaping grab against the wall in left field. Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., and Edwin Encarnacion got into the act too later in the frame. James Loney hit a hard chopper that the Canadian sprawled to retrieve in shallow right field. Encarnacion dived to snag the throw to first and managed to keep his foot on the bag for the out. In the eighth, it was Toronto third baseman Juan Franciscos turn. He made a great diving snag off the bat of leadoff hitter David DeJesus and an inning later, Lawrie was at it again by barehanding a slow chopper on the fly and whipping it to first base in time. "It was just one of those days that we just refused to lose," Tolleson said. On the winning play, Pillar broke for third when he saw the ball roll down the left-field line and third-base coach Luis Rivera made a gutsy decision to send him home with nobody out. "I wanted to score," Pillar said. "When I saw the ball go by, I mean Luis is aggressive over there. I mean worst-case scenario, Gose is probably standing at third base with one out. He made a good call there." The speedy Gose has been showing consistency with his bunting ability this season and it paid off. "I got it down tonight," he said. "I just tried to move the runner and good things happened." Toronto starter Liam Hendriks and Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer both gave up two earned runs over six innings. Blue Jays left-hander Rob Rasmussen came on for the seventh and Matt Joyce greeted him with a ground-rule double. Toronto manager John Gibbons quickly went to the bullpen for Dustin McGowan, who gave up just one walk over two scoreless innings. Aaron Loup (2-1) worked the ninth as Toronto (32-22) completed the three-game sweep. Encarnacion, who has tied a club record with 14 homers this month, drove in a pair of runs with a first-inning single. Jose Reyes opened the game with a single and moved to third on a single by Jose Bautista before Encarnacion cashed them in. The Rays tied it in the second inning. Joyce doubled and scored when Wil Myers followed with a two-run shot, his fifth homer of the season. Tampa Bay (23-31) entered the series on a four-game winning streak. The three straight losses have sent the Rays into the division basement. "Its been pretty much how the season has gone to this point, but were going to change it," said Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon. "All these weird awkward breaks, were just not catching them." Toronto, meanwhile, has won 14 of its last 16 games and 19 of 24 overall. Its the Blue Jays longest winning streak since an 11-gamer last June. "I think thats a pretty exciting win I think all around for the team," Gose said. "Three straight sweeps and a sweep of another A.L. East opponent in the Rays, who weve had trouble with over the last couple years. It was a huge win." Notes: Toronto has won seven straight home games and is 10 games over .500 for the first time in over five years. ... Announced attendance was 17,309 and the game took three hours 23 minutes to play. ... Toronto closer Casey Janssen was given the day off to rest after picking up his eighth save in eight opportunities the night before. Fellow reliever Sergio Santos (elbow) felt some discomfort during a throwing session and may try again Sunday, Gibbons said before the game. ... The Blue Jays will wrap up their 10-game homestand with a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals beginning Thursday night. Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (5-4) is scheduled to start for Toronto against fellow right-hander James Shields (6-3). ... The Rays will continue their eight-game road trip with a visit to Boston. ... Loney hit a towering shot in the fourth inning that curled foul just before reaching the foul pole. After an umpire review of 90 seconds, the call stood. ... The Rays challenged the call on Lawries infield single in the fourth. A 32-second review confirmed the call. <a href="http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Black-93-Dwight-Freeney-Womens-Jersey/">Dwight Freeney Chargers Jersey</a>. The visitors missed a host of good chances to win the game, and were left to rue substitute Ivo Ilicevics strike against the crossbar in the 86th minute, when he only had the goalkeeper to beat. <a href="http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Black-88-David-Johnson-Womens-Jersey/">Chargers #88 Jersey</a>. If the Big Easts best player was overlooked before, he wont be any longer. He always reaches the second gear, said Huskies head coach Jim Calhoun.

The Austrian ski federation said Morgenstern was "conscious and well responsive" and his condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. The federation said it was "way too early" to judge Morgensterns chances of competing in Sochi, and that an update on his condition was not expected before Monday. The individual competition on the normal hill in Sochi is scheduled for Feb. 8, with the large hill on Feb. 15 and the team event on Feb. 17. Morgenstern won Olympic gold in the individual competition and the team event in 2006, and again in the team event four years later. Morgensterns injuries were not life-threatening, head of clinic Josef Obrist told the Austria Press Agency. "He has a serious injury and he has to be monitored fulltime," said Obrist, adding that Morgenstern was responsive and gave clear answers. The 27-year-old Morgenstern crashed while training for this weekends ski flying World Cup. During his second jump of the day, he lost his balance in the air, turned over to the left and landed on his back and head. He briefly lost consciousness but was able to speak shortly afterward. "Fortunately he was responsive, Thomas can move arms aand legs.dddddddddddd Thats very important," team physician Herbert Leitner said. "He asked me what happened." Morgenstern received first aid on the hill and was flown by helicopter to the hospital, head coach Alexander Pointner said. "We can only hope for the best," Pointner said. "This really hurts because we are all very close. Thomas is the heart of this team." Earlier Friday, Morgenstern jumped 196.5 metres in his flawless first training run on the Kulm, one of the five largest ski flying hills in the world. His second attempt was disturbed as his skis made contact in the air, the federations sport director, Ernst Vettori, said. "He didnt make a mistake at his jump but the ends of his skis touched each other which threw him offline," said Vettori, a 1992 Olympic ski jump champion. Its the second big crash for Morgenstern in the Olympic season. He crashed into the snow following a jump at the World Cup in Titisee-Neustadt, Germany, on Dec. 15. That crash came one day after Morgenstern had won his first World Cup event in almost two years. He suffered several bruises, face cuts and a broken finger from that mishap, but recovered quickly and finished runner-up to Austrian teammate Thomas Diethart in the Four Hills Tour last week. Morgenstern, who has won 23 individual World Cup events and took the overall title in 2008 and 2011, won the prestigious Four Hills title three years ago. ' ' '

ROME - Canadas Milos Raonic defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (5), 6-4 on Thursday to reach the Italian Open quarterfinals. Raonic, the No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., won five of the last six points in the first-set tiebreaker. He picked up a break in the second set en route to his first career victory over the 11th-seeded Frenchman. Tsonga outlasted Raonic in a marathon match at the London Olympics in 2012 and beat him again last year at Indian Wells. Raonic hit seven aces and saved five break point chances on the red clay courts at the Foro Italico. Hell make his fourth Masters 1000 Series quarterfinal appearance of the season Friday against Jeremy Chardy of France. Chardy, who upset Roger Federer of Switzerland in the second round, advanced with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Croatias Ivan Dodig. Raonic has yet to reach a semifinal this year. Also Thursday, Rafael Nadal was pushed to three sets for the second consecutive match before ultimately prevailing to set up a quarterfinal against Andy Murray. The top-ranked Nadal dropped behind a set and a break against Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, then won 11 of the final 12 games to win 6-7 (4), 6-2, 6-1 on another windy day at the Foro Italico. "Get used to (it)," Nadal said of his recent struggles. "With the years thats the normal thing. Everybody suffers. Thats part of the sport." At 27, Nadal believed his best days were probably behind him. "At this age, (Bjorn) Borg was doing other things," said Nadal, a 13-time Grand Slam winner. "Its not possible to win for 10 years with easy scores and easy matches. At the same time, Im sure I can do much better than I am doing." Nadal was looking forward to facing Murray for the first time in more than two years. "I play against one of the top players in the world after two tough days," Nadal said. "If I play well Im going to have my chances, if not Im going to spend the weekend (at home) in Mallorca." Murray eliminated Jurgen Melzer of Austria 7-6 (1), 6-4 to celebrate his 27th birthday. In an upset, the seemingly ageless Tommy Haas beat third-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka 5-7, 6-2, 6-3. On the womens side, Maria Sharapovas 12-match winning streak — which included titles in Stuttgart and Madrid — ended with a 6-1, 6-4 loss to Ana Ivanovic. Showing no signs of trouble from the left thigh injury that forced her to withdraw from Madrid, defending champion Serena Williams cruised past fellow American Varvara Lepchenko 6-1, 6-2. Pushed for three hours by Gilles Simon to nearly midnight a day earlier, Nadal didnt generate the usual depth with his groundstrokes, and began to take control only when Youzhny started committing more unforced errors. "The conditions were very impossible," said Nadal, a seven-time Rome champion. "You always have to find the positive thing. I was able to play with the right motivation even if the feeling was not perfect." Nadal consistently ran around his backhand, a shot that also caused him concern in recent losses to David Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro in Monte Carlo and Barcelona, respectively. Of Nadals 29 winners, only two of them came with his backhand. Haas, the oldest player in the draw at 36, used his expertise to give Wawrinka trouble with heavy topspin. Haas last beat a top-10 player more than a year ago in Miami, where he took out then-No. 1 Novak Djokovic. "These things dont happen too often anymore, so when I take them Im really proud of them," the German said. He has been winning this week in Rome for the first time since he lost the 2002 final to Andre Agassi. Wawrinka cited a back injury that occurred in colder conditions during his opening win. "I couldnt move too well," he said. "Its really nothing serious. Its just painful and I need some rest — maybe a few days." Wawrinka has made a great start by winning the Australian Open and the Monte Carlo Masters but another early exit in last weeks Madrid Open leaves his form in question with the French Open starting in 10 days. Haas quarterfinal opponent will be Grigor Dimitrov, who at 22 is the youngest player in the top 20. Dimitrov rallied past sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2. Fifth-seeded David Ferrer beat Ernests Gulbis of Latvia 6-2, 6-3 and will meet either Novak Djokovic or Philipp Kohlschreiber, who were playing late. In womens play, second-seeded Li Na defeated Sam Stosur 6-3, 6-1 and will next meet Sara Errani of Italy, who kept the crowd content by beating Czech qualifier Petra Cetkovska 6-4, 7-6 (3). Also, third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska eliminated Francesca Schiavone 6-4, 6-1, and will play 2007 and 2008 Rome champion Jelena Jankovic, who got by Flavia Pennetta 6-2, 6-3. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Paul-McQuistan-Authentic-Jersey/">Paul McQuistan Youth Jersey</a>. Heres how Id fix them. THE PROBLEM: In general, a player becomes eligible for the draft either four years after he begins his university career or the year after he turns 25, whichever comes first. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Pierre-Desir-Authentic-Jersey/">Pierre Desir Womens Jersey</a>. Phoenix originally signed Barbosa to a 10-day contract on Jan. 8 after Eric Bledsoe injured his knee and then signed him to another 10-day deal. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Billy-Cundiff-Authentic-Jersey/">http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Billy-Cundiff-Authentic-Jersey/</a>. According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, Snow offered his disappointment about the knee injury that sidelined his best player for the remainder of the season. "Are the IIHF or IOC going to reimburse our season ticket holders now? Its a joke. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Dion-Lewis-Authentic-Jersey/">Dion Lewis Youth Jersey</a>. There is some potential on offence but overall the roster doesnt have enough talent to get excited about in 2013. Maybe QB Jake Locker makes the leap in his third year in the league, but Tennessees fortunes are still tied more closely to Johnson at running back, who will need to return to CJ2K for the Titans to have any chance at the playoffs this season. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbrowns.com/Womens-Nate-Burleson-Authentic-Jersey/">Nate Burleson Jersey</a>.   The Dutchman, who already won the 5,000 meters during the opening weekend of the Olympics, said Monday that the middle-distance would likely be too much of a distraction during his preparation for the longer race on Feb.MINNEAPOLIS -- An unexpectedly strong performance in the middle gave the Minnesota Timberwolves a big lift Sunday night. Kevin Love had his usual solid performance with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 104-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings. But it was the other double-double that was unexpected. In his first career start, rookie Gorgui Dieng had his first career double-double with season highs in points (12) and rebounds (11) for Minnesota. He also had five blocks. "Were a man short right now and Gorgui, he just came in and did what we needed him to do and thats just rebound and alter shots at the basket," said Kevin Martin, who had 31 points Dieng, the 21st pick in last summers draft, made his first career start in place of Nikola Pekovic, who sat out with soreness in his right ankle. "I was prepared if I get minutes or not I was just going to keep working," Dieng said. "I think you should work more when you dont play a lot. I didnt get minutes. I never got frustrated. Just keep working and I know my time will come one day." A former Timberwolves player saw Diengs potential firsthand. "I told him since the first day he got here that its your job to block shots. You got drafted to rebound and block shots. His post games getting better as well. If he sticks with that hes going to be a good player in this league," said Derrick Williams, who scored 26 points and had 11 rebounds off the bench for Sacramento. Williams knows about being a young player in Minnesota. The second-overall pick in the 2011 Draft, Williams had two disappointing seasons with the Timberwolves before being traded to Sacramento on Nov. 26 for Luc Mbah a Moute, who has been a non-factor for Minnesota. "I think anybody who gets traded wants to play good against the team that traded them," he said. "I just wanted to be aggressive because (DeMarcus) Cousins was out and I was the next man up. Coach wants me to be aggressive and thats what I did tonight." Cousins, the Kings starting centre, misseed the game with right knee tendinitis.dddddddddddd He was replaced by Aaron Gray, who hadnt seen action since Feb. 25. Gray finished with four points in 20 minutes. "Its a testament to Aarons work ethic and his positive attitude for him to be ready to play tonight after not playing in so many games," coach Michael Malone said. "It was good to see him out there." Love hit 3 of 6 3-pointers, including one with 1:07 to play to give Minnesota a 97-95 lead and the Timberwolves hung on to win for the 33rd time, their most wins since 2005-06. Sacramentos Isaiah Thomas had 27 points, including two 3-pointers in the final 15 seconds to keep it close. Thomas scored from beyond the arc with 13.2 seconds left to get the Kings within two. After Martin made two free throws to make it 102-98 with 12.1 seconds left, Thomas answered with another 3-pointer before Martin made two more free throws with 5.7 seconds left. It was the second straight night the Kings couldnt close out a game, leaving them with a 2-5 record on a season-long seven-game road trip. They were outscored by six points in the fourth quarter and lost 94-87 in Chicago Saturday. "We were in there; we had a chance to win, but we just couldnt capitalize," Thomas said. Down 29-19 late in the first quarter, Williams provided a spark by scoring 10 straight points off the bench to get the Kings within three by quarters end. Williams had six more in the second quarter as the Kings took a 54-53 halftime lead. NOTES: Sacramento has officially been eliminated from playoff contention. ... Listed as day to day, Pekovic missed 13 games earlier this season -- including all of February -- with bursitis in his right ankle. ... Minnesota entered the game averaging a league-low 3.5 blocks per game. ... Thomas reached 1,000 career assists with a first-quarter helper, becoming the eighth player in Sacramento history to have that many in his first three seasons with the Kings. ... Martin made his 1,000th career 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. ... Twelve of Sacramentos final 15 games are in the Pacific time zone. ' ' '

TORONTO -- Toronto FC might have to wait to see expensive new striker Jermain Defoe in action. Defoe will miss his last game as a member of English Premier League team Tottenham with what is reported to be a hamstring injury. Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood confirmed to reporters that Defoe will not be fit for Thursdays Europa Cup match with Ukrainian club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. He will say his goodbye to Spurs fans at halftime. What this means for Toronto FC is not yet clear as the severity of the injury is unknown. Defoe is expected to join the Major League Soccer club over the weekend. The 31-year-old forward signed a four-year deal with Toronto in January worth a reported 90,000 pounds (C$165,255) a week. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">cheap jerseys from china</a>. Chelsea led through Gary Cahills 60th-minute deflected shot but Sergio Aguero levelled the scores in the 78th with a penalty and Samir Nasri scored the winner seven minutes later following an exchange of passes with Carlos Tevez, who returned to action after six months away. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">wholesale jerseys</a>. The victory strengthened Schalkes hold on third place and pulled it even on points with second-place Borussia Dortmund ahead of its match at Bayern Munich. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/</a>. -- The Chicago Bulls didnt get a great night from their starters Wednesday. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">nfl jerseys china</a>. And his fourth quarter was a beauty. Bledsoe, who missed 10 of his first 11 shots, scored the final 14 points for Phoenix, topping it off with a 3-pointer with 0. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">cheap jerseys</a>. -- Stephen Strasburg says hes "ready to rock.INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Luol Deng was surprised. His mom was shaken. After learning he had been traded from the Chicago Bulls to Cleveland, Deng said the most difficult aspect of knowing he would no longer be playing for the Bulls after nine seasons wasnt packing his bags or saying goodbye to teammates. The hardest part was explaining to his mom, Martha, he had to move. "She couldnt understand why," he said. "She feels like Im a nice guy, I get along with everybody, so I had to explain to her. She was asking me, Are you not playing well? Whats going on? That was the hardest part." Its gotten a little easier. Deng began a new chapter in his NBA career on Wednesday when he practiced with the Cavaliers for the first time. Cleveland acquired the two-time All-Star small forward Tuesday from the Bulls in exchange for centre Andrew Bynums salary cap-friendly contract and future draft picks. Deng said he didnt see the trade coming. The 28-year-old knew a deal was always possible and an end to his run with the Bulls was inevitable, but it caught him off guard. "Ive been very lucky," he said. "Not a lot of guys can say theyve been with one organization for too long. I was definitely surprised. You hear stuff, you hear rumours, but some of its true and some of its not. When it happened, I couldnt believe it. It took a while to hit me. But its not like Im stopping from playing basketball. Ive been traded from one great organization to another one." The Cavs are counting on Deng to make a difference on and off the floor. A dependable scorer, solid defender and leader, Deng brings a winning attitude to a young Cleveland team undergoing growing pains. "Hes a veteran whos still in his prime," said coach Mike Brown. "He adds to the culture of what were trying to do here. Hes definitely a two-way player that can add an amount of professionalism, a maturity, and winning ingredients to any ball club." Brown said Deng, who averaged 19 points and 6.9 rebounds, will likely start Friday night when the Cavs open a five-game road trip in Utah. The trip will help Dengs transition. "Its great for him to get to know us, soon and better, and for us to get to know him," Brown said. "So you couldnt ask for it to happpen at a better time.dddddddddddd." During his first interview with Cleveland media members, Deng flashed his wide smile and charmed reporters while recounting the whirlwind 36 hours since the trade was completed. Deng recently turned down a contract extension from the Bulls, whose season shifted from contention to rebuilding after star point guard Derrick Rose was injured. Several of his former teammates expressed disappointment in seeing him leave, and Deng said it was tough knowing he wont play with them again. "Its basketball at the end of the day, and its my job," he said. "But the hardest thing is those are friends. Its really hard when you wake up the next day and know that your friend is gone and hes going to be competing against you. I think they understand the business part of it. Its a contract thing, and my time has come up. Thats the direction the organization chose to go." Deng is in the final year of his contract worth $14 million this season and is eligible for free agency this summer. Hes willing to discuss a long-term contract with the Cavs, who are just 12-23 and currently out of playoff position. "Im definitely open to talking about it," he said. "I have no problem with that." Deng said he felt like a "college kid" and was amazed as he toured Clevelands lavish training complex for the first time. "Youve got a food place and a chef there the whole time," he said. "You pick whatever you want, then youve got a TV and a hot tub, cold tub. I was caught up with that." When it came time to practice, Deng had to wear No. 8, but afterward he convinced Cavs rookie guard Matthew Dellavedova to give him No. 9, which he has worn his whole career. "We sat in the locker room for a little while looking at each other. It was almost like we were about to break up," Deng said with a laugh. "It was really hard, but hes such a nice guy. He gave up the number. Im definitely going to have to pay him back for that." Deng explained No. 9 has special meaning for him. "Im one of nine kids," he said. "I always wore nine for my mother because she gave birth nine times. It was always my payback to her." Now theres a trade she can appreciate. ' ' '

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Drew Pomeranz may have found his niche as a starting pitcher. Pomeranz won his third consecutive start since moving from the bullpen into the rotation, Coco Crisp drove in two runs before departing with an injury, and the surging Oakland Athletics beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on Tuesday night. Pomeranz (4-1) allowed three hits, two walks and had three strikeouts over five innings. He has not given up a run in his three starts, all of which lasted five innings. "My three starts have been a great team effort," Pomeranz said. "We scored a lot of runs and the bullpen shut them down." Sean Doolittle, the third Oakland reliever, pitched the ninth for his third save and complete a four-hitter. After the game, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said there is a good chance Doolittle will take over the closers role. "Its pretty cool," Doolittle said. Doolittle did see his streak of 30 straight appearances without allowing a walk end when Ryan Hanigan drew one with two outs in the ninth. Former Baltimore closer Jim Johnson, acquired by Oakland from the Orioles in December, has allowed seven runs in 4 1-3 innings over his past six appearances. Crisp hit a two-run double and John Jaso had an RBI single off Jake Odorizzi (2-4) as Oakland took a 3-0 lead in the second. The AL West-leading Athletics have won 10 of 11, outscoring their opponents 74-18 over the stretch. "You dont do that by swinging at bad pitches," Odorizzi said. Crisp was replaced defensively by Craig Gentry in the bottom of the sixth because of neck soreness. He had started four straight games after missing seven with a neck strain. Melvin expects Crisp to sit out Wednesday nights game. Odorizzi gave up three runs, four hits, five walks and struck out eight in 4 2-3 innings. The Rays (19-27) are eight games under .500 for the first time since the end of the 2007 season (66-96), which was their final season as the Devil Rays. "Never say it cant get any worse because whenever you utter those words, youre going to find it out," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "Im looking more for the turning point. You never know how close you are to turning negative momentum to positive." Pomeranz worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the third by getting a double play grounder from Desmond Jennings on a 3-2 pitch. Jennings also hit into an inning-ending double play with two on in the eighth. "Those double pays are huge," Pomeranz said. Maddon challenged the very close out call on Jennings at first base in the third, which the umpires ruled would stand after a review that took 1 minute, 23 seconds. NOTES: Oakland SS Jed Lowrie, who left Sundays game at Cleveland in the second because of a strained neck, was out of the starting lineup. ... Rays RHP Alex Cobb (strained left oblique) will rejoin the rotation Thursday. ... Athletics 2B Eric Sogard, removed Sunday in the eighth after fouling a ball off his knee, played. ... Hanigan (sore right hamstring) was a defensive replacement in the ninth. ... Oakland RHP Ryan Cook (strained right forearm) has been cleared to resume playing catch. ... Athletics LHP Eric OFlaherty (elbow ligament replacement surgery) threw 30 pitches in batting practice and will next throw in a simulated game. ... Oakland C Derek Norris walked three times, including one on a 14-pitch at-bat in the fourth. ...

MONTREAL -- Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo will remain on the sidelines for the rest of the season, a decision that casts serious doubt on the prospect of the CFLs all-time passing leader taking the field again. Calvillo hasnt played since suffering a concussion in a game at Saskatchewan over two months ago. Alouettes general manager and head coach Jim Popp confirmed Friday that Calvillo will not play again this year. Popp said the decision was reached Friday morning after Calvillo recently had a setback. "He still can exercise, still train, but hes made a decision to shut it down this season," Popp said after practice. "Hes not going to return this year and hes going to concentrate on getting his health back where it needs to be." Calvillo was injured on Aug. 17 when his head struck the turf following a legal hit by Roughriders defensive end Ricky Foley. Calvillo suffered from headaches and had vision trouble in the days after the hit. The 41-year-old Los Angeles native later made appearances on the practice field and sat in on team meetings. There is concern that Calvillos 20-year career may be over though his plans beyond this season arent clear. He didnt speak with reporters Friday. Toronto Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich, who was Montreals quarterbacks coach in 2007 and offensive co-ordinator and assistant head coach from 2008-11, was surprised to learn of Calvillos setback. "Thats disappointing for him," Milanovich said after arriving in Winnipeg for Saturdays game against the Blue Bombers. "It sounded like things were going well. Id hate to see him not get his opportunity to get back in there and if he chose to go out, go out on a more positive note." Calvillo broke Damon Allens league records for passing yards, completions and touchdown passes. His 79,816 passing yards are the most in pro football history, nearly 8,000 yards more than Brett Favre, the top passer in National Football League history. His 5,892 completions are second only to Favre in pro football history, and he ranks third in touchdown passes with 455, behind only Favre and Peyton Manning. The CFLs Most Outstanding Player Award recipient in 2003, 2008 and 2009, Calvillo has led the Alouettes to eight Grey Cup appearances. He has won titles in 2002 (when he was named the championship games MVP) and had back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010. It was in the middle of celebrating his third Grey Cup win that Calvillo revealed that he had cancer. He had a complete thyroidectomy and recovered to continue his career uninterrupted the following season. Calvillos cancer scare came two years after his wife Alexia waged a successful battle against cancer. He seriously contemplated retirement following the 2011 season after suffering two head injuries. Josh Neiswander took over as the starting quarterback in Montreal this season after Calvillo was injured. Rookie Tanner Marsh held the job briefly before he tore a ligament in his right thumb a month ago. Josh Smith, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2006 with Ohio State, is expected to make his first CFL start Sunday when Montreal hosts Hamilton in a key East Division showdown. The 6-9 Alouettes are in third place in the division, four points behind the 8-7 Tiger-Cats.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Jonathan Bernier doesnt have the luxury of getting into a regular rhythm for the Los Angeles Kings. The clear backup to Jonathan Quick, Bernier can sometimes go weeks between starts. Yet when he does play, Bernier is still expected to be sharp, make saves and win games. On Tuesday night, Bernier looked like an everyday goalie, shutting out Minnesota 4-0 in a game with playoff implications for the Kings. Despite being only his second start in February, Bernier stopped 26 shots, secured his first victory since Jan. 9, and didnt give up a goal for the first time since shutting out Edmonton last March. The performance came at a crucial time for Los Angeles (29-23-12). After losing five of six games, the victory over the Wild allowed the Kings to move into a tie with Dallas and Colorado for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "I thought he was awesome, he was the best player on the ice," Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter said. "Its great for him. The last five or six minutes, the team played for their goalie because hes given us a real good opportunity to win the game." Bernier found out after Mondays loss at Nashville that he would be starting against the Wild. "Its not easy, but thats my job," Bernier said. "Ive got to make sure Im ready every time I step in if I want to get back in." Berniers fifth career shutout was largely free of drama. Minnesota (28-26-9) had very few sustained stretches in the Los Angeles zone and had few good scoring chances. The best opportunity for the Wild came on a second-period three-on-two break, but Bernier stopped Tom Gilberts shot from the slot. "We kept everything to the outside," Bernier said. "On that (power play) in the second period, I knew that was a big (penalty kill) for us and the boys did a heck of a job. From there after, we had a lot of confidence and we shut the door." It didnt hurt that the Kings jumped on the Wild early. One night after feeling like they missed opportunities against the Predators, Los Angeles scored 44 seconds into the game and led 3-0 after the first period. Justin Williams scored the initial quick goal when he tipped a shot from the point and the puck bounced through the legs of goaltender Niklas Backstrom, who stopped just 11 shots for Minnesota. Dwight King gave the Kings a 2-0 lead midway in the first period as Los Angeles took advantage of a Minnesota defensive mistake. Anze Kopitar found King all alone in front of the net and he quickly converted. Kopitar stretched the lead to 3-0 late in the first period when he ran a perfect give-and-go with Dustin Brown. Brown had a pair of first-period assists for the Kings. That cushion was more than enough for Bernier against the Wild. "Its good to play with a lead," Bernier said. "Everyone was calmer, we could just play our style. As a team, we really came out strong. We knew it was a really big two points for us." While Los Angeles was happy to have won a game against another team in the Western Conference playoff race, the Wild were disappointed after a game filled with turnovers and defensive mistakes. "You create your own breaks in this game, we didnt do that," Minnesotas Kyle Brodziak said. "We didnt create any breaks because we didnt deserve any and earn any. Its another game where we started on our heels and they took it to us and we didnt fight back." Offensively things werent any better. "We had nothing offensively," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "There was too many things missing in our game to even have a sniff offensively. Puck support, battle level, going into hard areas, making plays, executing. Its kind of a long list." Notes: Brown has nine points (5 goals, 4 assists) in the past five games. ... Los Angeles C Jeff Carter is still looking for his first point since being acquired from Columbus last week. ... Minnesota D Tom Gilbert, a Twin Cities native the Wild acquired Monday from Edmonton, was called for a holding penalty just 4:59 into the game. ... The Kings, a popular preseason pick to make the NHL playoffs, went 5-7-2 in February. Minnesota, which had the best record in the NHL at one point in December, was 4-7-2. The Wild is 8-19-6 since a Dec. 10 victory at Phoenix. ... Minnesota plays four of its next five games on the road. <a href="http://www.authentictexansteamshop.com/Ryan-Fitzpatrick-Texans-Jersey">Ryan Fitzpatrick Red Jersey Texans</a>. -- Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett missed Sundays game against the Detroit Pistons due to personal reasons. <a href="http://www.authentictexansteamshop.com/Deandre-Hopkins-Texans-Jersey">DeAndre Hopkins Texans Jersey</a>.

Todays Round of 16 match-up features Ottawa Senators forward Kyle Turris taking on Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux. Turris shows a tremendous individual effort, faking out nearly an entire team. He victimizes the Caps going straight to the net. He barrels over the blue line freezing Mike Green, who earns a delayed penalty. He then shakes off some harassment from John Erskine before reaching for some open net with a ridiculous drag that leaves Philipp Grubauer with no chance of stopping the puck.

While building a 16-1 record as an undercard fighter, there was little mention of how, when he was in his late teens, the Haitian-born slugger from Montreal spent 18 months in a Bordeaux jail on charges of managing prostitutes, assault and making threats. Ex-jailbird boxers are hardly uncommon. But the past was brought up by Jesus Gonzales (27-1), who will face Stevenson at the Bell Centre on Saturday night with four minor belts and the No. 2 ranking in the International Boxing Federation on the line. Gonzales will wear a patch on his trucks for Natalies House, a womens shelter in Phoenix. Whether it is simply to put Stevenson off his game or not, the 27-year-old American is making it an issue. "It gets in his head," Gonzales said at a news conference Wednesday. "I know his past." Stevenson was clearly upset that events he hoped were long forgotten were brought up just before the biggest fight of his career. It will be Stevensons first bout with renowned trainer Emanuel Steward in his corner and is a must-win if he hopes to fulfil a dream to challenge fellow Montrealer Lucian Bute one day for the IBF title. To jump from 15th to second in IBF rankings would put him in range for a world title shot. "Im at another level now," the 34-year-old Stevenson said. "Now I want to be a champion, so I work hard with my promoter and trainer to be a champion." What Stevenson did or didnt do before he was arrested at 18 remains murky, but promoter Yvon Michel said that while he did time for prostitution and simple assault, he was never found guilty of rape, sexual assault or aggravated assault, as Gonzales has suggested. Stevenson only said he was jailed for "pimping." After he left prison, Stevenson took up boxing, won a silver medal for Canada at the 2004 Commonwealth Games, turned pro and has not been arrested again. He lives in suburban Longueuil, Que., with his girlfriend of four years and their two young daughters. "Its been 14 years," Stevenson said of his criminal past. "Thats a long time. "Thats the past. I learned a lot. You have the wrong people running (with) you. You have to look at which people are going to run with you. I was very young. Now Im older. I see the life. Im a fighter. I have two beautiful daughters. I work very hard for my family." Stevenson said jail was less a question of paying his debt to society as of regretting what he did and "trying to be bettter person.dddddddddddd" "We dont want to diminish the fact that he was beating girls," added Michel. "Thats very bad." Despite his record, he has a waiver that allows him to travel abroad. Two months ago, he visited Stewards famous Kronk Gym in Detroit. Steward, known as much these days as boxing analyst for the HBO specialty channel, took Thomas Hearns, Canadian Lennox Lewis and several other greats to world titles. After watching Stevenson spar and seeing his devastating left hand, Steward agreed to take him under his wing. It meant dumping his long-time Montreal trainer Howard Grant, who was not happy to see one of his top fighters leave without notice, but Stevenson said it was important to get regular sparring partners and to improve the obvious shortcomings in his game. While Stevenson can punch, he has little else in his repertoire. He said Steward has worked mainly on his balance and technique. Steward was in Austria this week helping heavyweight Wladimir Klitschko train for an upcoming title bout, but is due to arrive Friday and will be in Stevensons corner. Like Stevenson, Gonzales is a left-hander, but has only 14 knockouts in 28 career bouts. Stevenson has stopped 13 of 17 opponents before the limit, but the American is not impressed. "Hes like a big elephant," said Gonzales. "He walks around, trots around, doesnt know too much. He cant get no better." Gonzales said he has been a supporter of Natalies House for years but it will be the first time he wears its logo on his trunks. He said it is one of many charities or causes he has supported in Phoenix. "I dont get into the psychological (expletive)," he said. "I stick to the game plan. I know how to beat him and Ill beat him that way. "This all came up when we started talking about (fighting Stevenson). Thats his past, not mine. I dont care what hes done. I know Ive done a lot of good in my life." Trained by his father, Gonzales worked out for the bout at the National Sport Development gym in Calgary, because of the higher altitude and to get used to the cold. Also, his promoter Fanbase is partly based there. His main sparring partner was Calgary light middleweight Janks Trotter. Stevenson holds the NABA, NABO and IBF Intercontinental titles after his victory in December over Aaron Pryor Jr. Gonzales won the NABF belt from Francisco Sierra in his last bout in July. The co-feature has impressive light heavyweight prospect Eleider Alvarez (7-0) of Montreal defending his minor NABO title against American Otis Griffin (23-9-2). ' ' '
