Post iami slipped to a 30-17 home loss against the Tenness
TORONTO - When Todd Redmond takes the mound on Sunday afternoon, hell be looking to pitch the Blue Jays to a series sweep over the Rays and, depending on two out-of-town results, send his hometown team away without a playoff berth. “Thats fine. Im okay with that,” said Redmond. “Im going to go out there and treat it like any other start. Its the last game of the year and we have a chance to win a game. Thats how Im going to treat it.” Redmond is a native of St. Petersburg, Florida. He grew up going to Devil Rays games. He says he wasnt a fan of the team, they werent a good team at the time, but he and his friends would descend upon Tropicana Field to watch baseball and seek out autographs. A few of his pals got in touch with him on Saturday. “Ive had a few texts already,” said Redmond. “My buddy texted me earlier. He said that hes getting some people calling him saying to not do so good. But he told me to out there and beat them and send them home. Thats what Im going to try to do.” Sundays start, in the Jays season finale, will be Redmonds 14th of the year. Hes 4-1 with a 3.80 ERA in his first 13 starts. Picked up on waivers from the Orioles during spring training, the 28-year-old was little more than an afterthought, a depth guy, at the time. Now hes given the front office, and the manager, something to think about as the Blue Jays prepare for 2014. “Its a pretty good story,” said manager John Gibbons. “He came out of nowhere, we didnt know what to expect but he really forced his way, earned his way into that rotation and hes done a great job. His last few outings, too, hes shown where he can go further and further into the game and maintain things. Early on he was basically a three, four inning guy, maybe you hoped to get five. He put himself on the map. Its a nice story. Its been a long road for him. Im sure hes pretty excited about it.” Redmond knows hell have many eyes from back home watching him on Sunday afternoon. “You want to go out there and throw strikes, get ahead of hitters and treat this like any other start,” he said. “Treat it like my last start in Baltimore. Im still trying to earn a spot for next year so trying to impress and go out there and throw strikes and try to get people out.” TIE-BREAK SCENARIOS The Rays arrived in Toronto with a one-game lead on Cleveland for the American Leagues top wild card spot. Texas, on the outside, was two games back of Tampa Bay and a game back of the Indians, which held the second wild card spot. Since, the Rays have dropped two games to the Blue Jays while the Indians (visiting the Twins) and the Rangers (hosting the Angels) have each won twice. Entering today, with two playoff spots available, here are the wild card standings: Cleveland (91-70): – Tampa Bay (90-71): 1GB Texas (90-71): 1 GB In the event of a three way tie (that is, the Rays and Rangers win on Sunday and the Indians lose) Tampa Bay would visit Cleveland on Monday. The winner of that game would advance to Wednesdays wild card play-in game, while the loser would travel to Arlington, Texas to visit the Rangers on Tuesday for the right to play on Wednesday. All of that to say, the Rays have created a mess for themselves by playing so poorly in Toronto this weekend. Kelvin Benjamin Jersey . The 30-year-old Texas native was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 20th round of the 2001 amateur draft. Duke spent six years in Pittsburgh and also had stints with Arizona, Washington and Cincinnati. Brenton Bersin Jersey .com) - Jenny Boucek is the new head coach of the Seattle Storm. http://www.thepantherslockroom.com/wome ... ne-jersey/. But Paul Osbaldiston, Hamiltons assistant special teams and kicking coach, said the team still relished the championship game workout. Ed Dickson Jersey . The game was the first of two international friendlies that Canada is playing during the international break, with the second game against Slovenia set for Tuesday in Celje. Canada looked uncomfortable defensively throughout the game, and every free kick that came into Canadas penalty box looked like ending up in the back of the net. J.J. Jansen Jersey . They showered him with "MVP! MVP!" chants. In many ways, it seemed like hed never been gone.As the Steelers moved to 4-1, Ben Roethlisberger threw four touchdown passes, including a 72 yard catch and run for Sammie Coates as Pittsburgh beat the New York Jets 31-13. Brandon Marshall responded with a touchdown of his own but it was Big Ben and the Pittsburgh offence that came out on top. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott scored two touchdowns as the Dallas Cowboys beat the Cincinnati Bengals 28-14. Elliott had a 60 yard score and went over 100 yards for the third consecutive game this season. Ezekiel Elliott scored two touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys, including a 60 yard run Brandon LaFell scored two late touchdowns for the Bengals but it wasnt enough as Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott extended his interception-free start to five games. Dolphins rookie Jakeem Grant scored a 74 yard punt return as Miami slipped to a 30-17 home loss against the Tennessee Titans. In a much improoved performance, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota threw three touchdown passes and ran in for another as the Titans improved to 2-3 for the season.dddddddddddd There was another punt return as Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder scored on an 85 yard run to help Washington beat the Baltimore Ravens 16-10. Falcons beat Broncos on the road Touchdowns from Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman give Atlanta a 23-16 win over the Denver Broncos. Elsewhere, tight end Martellus Bennett scored three touchdowns on Tom Bradys return as the New England Patriots beat the Cleveland Browns 33-13. Click the link to watch the video above.
