TORONTO -- The Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays both had plenty of opportunities to score runs Friday night. Terry Mills Jersey . The Royals took advantage of their chances while the Blue Jays came up empty. Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain homered as Kansas City defeated Toronto 6-1 on a glorious spring evening at Rogers Centre. Jose Bautista went deep for the Blue Jays, who left 14 men on base and were outhit 9-8. Jason Vargas outduelled J.A. Happ in Kansas Citys second straight victory over the Blue Jays, who had their nine-game winning streak end a night earlier. Toronto (32-24) was a woeful 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position. "When you get on one of those hot streaks that we were on, we were cashing those in," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "But Vargas was really, really good." The Kansas City starter allowed seven hits and one earned run over six innings. Gordon homered in the fourth and Cain added another two-run shot in the eighth to knock Happ out of the game. Despite the loss, Toronto maintained its 2 1/2-game lead on second-place New York in the American League East division standings after the Yankees dropped a 6-1 decision to Minnesota. The Blue Jays entered this four-game series on an offensive tear, piling up the runs over three straight series sweeps. The trick will be keeping that win streak hangover to a minimum. "When you win nine games in a row, you expect to come out the next day and win," said Toronto catcher Erik Kratz. "That mentality hasnt changed the last two nights. We were a couple inches away last night from winning and tonight we were a couple hits away from being back in this game." After the game, the Blue Jays announced that top prospect Marcus Stroman had been recalled from triple-A Buffalo and would start Saturday afternoon. "We want to see him as a starter," Gibbons said. "Hes been really good down there this year and this is his opportunity." Toronto looked ready to do some damage in the first inning after Jose Reyes led off with a triple and Bautista reached on a walk. But like he did all night, Vargas snuffed out the threat. "I feel something like that hopefully sets the tone for the game and fires us up," he said. "We were able to get a run the next inning and keep it moving from there." Kansas City (26-28) padded its lead when Gordon smacked his fourth home run of the season. That was more than enough offence for Vargas (5-2), who allowed seven hits, one earned run and three walks while striking out seven. Bautista gave the crowd of 21,543 a charge in the fifth with his 14th home run of the season. Edwin Encarnacion followed with a two-out walk but Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., struck out. Happ (4-2) was tagged for six earned runs and nine hits over 7 2/3 innings. He walked two batters and had six strikeouts. Toronto brought the potential tying run to the plate in the seventh against reliever Aaron Crow. Bautista walked and Lawrie hit a two-out single but Dioner Navarro flew out. In the eighth, Cain tacked on some insurance runs with his second home run of the season. "This is more of the offence that we envisioned coming out of spring training," said Royals manager Ned Yost. "Were not going to be a club thats going to lead the league in home runs but weve got home run power that we havent used." Recent triple-A callup Bobby Korecky relieved Happ in the eighth and retired the lone batter he faced. With the bullpen in need of a rest, he stayed on for the ninth and retired the Royals in order. Korecky was sent back down after the game. Notes: Stroman pitched in a relief role earlier this season before being stretched out again in Buffalo. The move also allows the Blue Jays to give Drew Hutchison -- whos coming off Tommy John surgery -- a little more rest. Hutchison will now start Tuesday. ... Bautista threw out a runner at first base for the second straight night. Omar Infante hit a flare into right field that he thought was going into the seats. Bautista slid and trapped the ball after it bounced before getting Infante in plenty of time at first base. "I dont know if youll see a better play in baseball today than that play right there," Yost said. "Omar hit the ball and lost it, he thought it was foul. For Bautista to come, smother the ball, one, and then still see that he had a play at first base, I dont think Ive ever seen a play like that. Tremendous play." ... Encarnacion, who has hit 16 homers this month, walked three times. ... The game took three hours one minute to play. ... Right-hander Aaron Brooks (0-0) is scheduled to start Saturday for the Royals. ... The Blue Jays have homered in 12 of their last 13 games. ... Korecky has a microscopic 0.29 earned-run average with five saves in 22 games with the Bisons. Dennis Rodman Jersey . General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful. Joe Dumars Jersey . -- Pelicans coach Monty Williams does not expect guard Eric Gordon to play in any of New Orleans final five games this season. http://www.basketballpistonsauthority.com/customized-c-1/ . Western and the second-ranked Laval Rouge et Or (7-0) once again received 20 and 10 first-place votes from the Football Reporters of Canada panel, respectively. Rounding out the Top 10 are the Calgary Dinos (7-0), Queens Gaels (7-1), Guelph Gryphons (7-1), Montreal Carabins (5-2), Bishops Gaiters (5-2), McMaster Marauders (5-3), Manitoba Bisons (4-3) and the Saskatchewan Huskies (4-3) Western crushed York 50-10 last Saturday in its league finale to secure first place in the OUA standings and a bye in the first round of the conference playoffs.Each week, TSN.ca takes a look at the top available players in fantasy football ahead of the weekly waiver deadline. Quarterbacks Jake Locker, Tennesee Titans (vs. Dallas) Last Week: 22-33, 266 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs Depending on your league, Locker may already be on another teams bench, but he – and the rest of the Titans – looked good in beating what should be a strong Kansas City team and finishing in the Top 5 at his position. Ive always been a fan of Lockers game, save for his inability to stay healthy, but while hes on the field he may be a good option for a team looking for a QB. More good news: he plays Dallas brutal defence at home in Week 2. EJ Manuel, Buffalo Bills (vs. Miami) Last Week: 16-22, 173 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 19 rushing yards, 1 TD This is a more desperate move than Locker, but Manuel did finish just outside the Top 10 at his position in Week 1. His value appears tied to his rushing ability. If Manuel can manage some yards on the ground and, better yet, a rushing TD like last week, hell be valuable. But you certainly cant count on that every week and Manuels weekly rank should drop off moving forward. Running Backs Darren Sproles, Philadelphia Eagles (at Indianapolis) Last Week: 11 carries, 71 yards, 1 TD; 4 receptions, 14 yards Sproles could easily be taken in your league, but he came into the year ranked in the 40s at running back, so theres at least a chance hes still available. Sproles is a backup running back that racks up fantasy points, its that simple. He proved right away being behind LeSean McCoy wont hinder him as much as some feared. Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Pittsburgh) Last Week: 11 carries, 70 yards, 1 TD; 5 receptions, 14 yards The Ravens were quick to replace Bernard Pierce with Forsett as lead back in the (now permanent) absence of Ray Rice. I dont believe the journeyman Forsett will hold that role all season but while he has it, hes a decent RB2 option for a needy-team. Terrence West, Cleveland Browns (vs. New Orleans) Last Week: 16 carries, 100 yards With Ben Tate injured, it appears West will get first crack at replacing him. West impressed in Week 1 after a weak pre-season and should be owned. The Browns could have a very good run game this year with all three backs to receive significant carries averaging more than six yards per carry against the Steelers. If you dont want to get in the West bidding wars, Isaiah Crowell, who looked good in scoring two touchdowns in Week 1, is worth a look as well. Wide Receiivers Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers (vs. Allen Iverson Jersey. Detroit) Last Week: 6 receptions, 92 yards, 1 TD I was high on Benjamin in the preseason and he showed in Week 1 he very much could become this years Keenan Allen. Working with backup QB Derek Anderson, Benjamin put up a borderline WR1 performance. That isnt likely to change when Cam Newton returns to the helm in Carolina next week; the rookie receiver and QB developed quick chemistry this preseason. Steve Smith, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Pittsburgh) Last Week: 7 receptions, 118 yards, 1 TD Smith is a gamer. He was a gamer in Carolina and it appears hes still a gamer now that hes in Baltimore. Most of the veterans points that pushed him to a WR1 performance in Week 1 were off an 80-yard reception, but he led the league in targets the first week of the season. While he may not have the big plays every week, it appears hell get more than enough work to put up solid performances moving forward. Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars (at Washington) Last Week: 4 receptions, 110 yards, 2 TDs I dont know who he is either, but he had a massive Week 1 for the Jaguars and the roughly 1% of fantasy teams that owned him. That number is sure to go up next week, but there are a couple reasons to be weary: hes still a Jaguar, and they arent likely to be scoring much points this year, and he only caught four of his nine targets, which could lead QB Chad Henne to look elsewhere in the future. Greg Jennings, Minnesota Vikings (vs. New England) Last Week: 6 receptions, 58 yards, 1 TD Jennings was owned a lot more at this time last year than he is now, but after a disappointing first year in Minnesota, fantasy players werent so quick to bite. While Cordarrelle Patterson had more points in Week 1, many were gained through rushing yards and Jennings finished with more targets against the Rams. Plus the Vikings passing attack could be potent enough to warrant both receivers being owned. Tight Ends Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Philadelphia) Last Week: 4 receptions, 64 yards, 1 TD Allen was a bit of a forgotten man after losing a lot of time to injury last year. But the former first round pick, now healthy, put up a strong game against the Broncos in Week 1. The only thing preventing Allen from becoming a bona fide TE1 is teammate Coby Fleener, who actually got more targets than Allen in Week 1. Fleener is not a good tight end however, and once the Colts finally recognize that Allens targets and numbers should improve.
