Reggie White Super Bowl Jersey. This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

Tony Brown Super Bowl Jersey.J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. FLORHAM PARK. N.J. -- Breno Giacomini insists hell be back on the football field at some point. The New York Jets right tackle just isnt sure when that will be.Giacomini is still dealing with a lower-back injury that will likely keep him out of the teams regular-season opener -- and perhaps longer.Right now, Im considered day-to-day, Giacomini said Thursday, the first time he spoke to reporters since being injured during minicamp in June. I dont know when Ill be back, but Im progressing.Giacomini, entering his third season with the Jets, has not practiced during training camp because of a strain and muscle spasms. He is on the physically unable to perform list and doesnt appear to be on track to be ready to play in the season opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 11.I honestly have no idea, coach Todd Bowles said when asked if he thought Giacomini would be ready to start the season. Its getting close and hes not practicing yet, so well see.Ben Ijalana and Brent Qvale have been splitting snaps at right tackle with the starting offense, but neither has started an NFL game. Bowles acknowledged that the Jets could also explore outside options.Wed consider it, he said. Weve talked about it and well continue to talk about it. Well see how they (Ijalana and Qvale) come along, and see who we want to add, if we want to add anybody.Giacomini says hes at aboout 80 percent speed and insists he will play this season, but is uncertain when hell be completely healthy.dddddddddddd He said he was able to get into a three-point stance and do some basic blocking techniques against air during practice Wednesday. He said he did some more things on Thursday.Its not where I need to be to be on the field, Giacomini said.The 30-year-old lineman said he expected his back to feel better a week or two after he injured it, but the pain increased during the July 4 weekend. Giacomini acknowledged that he has dealt with a similar back issue during his career, but it wasnt as intense as his current ailment.He didnt go into details about how it has been treated, declining to say whether he has received any injections. Giacomini did acknowledge that the injury is not a disk-related issue.Every day were taking a step forward, he said. No steps back, so thats a good thing.When asked if he could start the season on PUP, meaning he would have to miss at least the first six games of the season, Giacomini shrugged.Is it a possibility? he said. Probably. Its something I dont want, but thats something I cant control.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '

Eduardo Nunez had four hits for Minnesota, which scored at least three runs in four of the first five innings.Gonzalez (0-1) walked two batters and gave up two hits in Minnesotas four-run first. He was hurt by poor defense, with misplays on three consecutive batters extending the inning.With two on and one out, Gonzalez snagged Brian Doziers comebacker, but Rougned Odor dropped the throw to second base, erasing a chance for an inning-ending double play. Kepler then grounded softly to first baseman Mitch Moreland, who threw home too late to force Nunez.Finally, Eduardo Escobar hit a potential double-play grounder, but shortstop Elvis Andrus dropped Odors feed. He recovered in time to retire Kepler, but that opened the door for Juan Centenos two-run single.Rangers manager Jeff Banister pulled Gonzalez after 38 pitches.You get into a situation like that -- young kid, could have pushed him to one more hitter, Banister said.

He used a hybrid, as he put it, to retire all four batters on lazy fly balls to the outfield.I mess around pretty much every day, he said of his preparation for pitching. Obviously no one wants that, but when you play 162 games its going to happen. Im just glad I could help out and save some arms.Holaday said he had pitched once in Triple-A, retiring both batters he faced.Hopefully I dont get overexposed, he deadpanned.INTERNATIONAL SIGNINGSSaturday was the first day of the 2016 MLB international signing period.

So moving Belmont appears to be the plan. That would mean Florida would need to find someone else to play in Jacksonville on opening night. The Gators also play Mercer on Nov. 13 in Jacksonville.When Belmont released its nonconference schedule last week, it noted that the date against Florida had not been finalized due to extenuating circumstances.Florida officials declined to say whether a schedule change was imminent.We originally agreed to the Nov. 11 date with Belmont officials, but they have been flexible in working with us as we complete our nonconference schedule, team spokesman Denver Parler said Monday.Floridas nonconference schedule has been complex to piece together because of an ongoing $64.5 million renovation to the OConnell Center.The project, which includes luxury boxes, chair-back seating throughout the lower bowl and upgraded amenities, is scheduled to be completed in time for fall commencement in early December.The Gators play their first game in the revamped arena on Dec. 21 against Little Rock. Before that, they will play 10 nonconference games throughout the Sunshine State as well as a game against perennial powerhouse Duke in New York City (Dec. 6).Florida begins the season with the two games in Jacksonville, then faces St. Bonaventure in Lakeland (Nov. 17), plays three games -- including one against Seton Hall -- in the Advocare Invitational in Orlando (Nov. 24-27), plays at North Florida (Dec. 1), travels to Florida State (Dec. 11) and faces Charlotte in Sunrise (Dec. 17).The game in Tampa remains unsettled.---This version corrects spelling of spokesmans last name to Parler.

WASHINGTON -- The Atlanta Braves allowed one big inning Monday, and it was enough to bring an end to the teams six-game winning streak.Ryan Weber, making his first start of the season, allowed home runs to Trea Turner and Chris Heisey during a five-run third inning and the Braves fell 6-4 to the Washington Nationals in the opener of a three-game series.Washington right-hander Max Scherzer (16-7) allowed two runs in seven innings to stymie Atlanta, which left 11 men on base.We left a lot of guys on against him, but thats why he is who he is, too, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. He gets in trouble and he has a lot of weapons he can go to.Weber (1-1) allowed five runs in three innings, with all of the damage coming in his final inning. Weber allowed a leadoff single to catcher Jose Lobaton, who moved up a base on Scherzers sacrifice. Turner then smacked a two-run homer to left with an out in the third to give the Nationals a 2-1 lead.Weber yielded a double and a walk to create more trouble. After Clint Robinsons pop out, Heisey drilled his ninth homer of the season into the left-field seats to make it 5-1.I left one just middle-in, right in (Turners) wheelhouse and after that my ability to limit the damage was not that good, Weber said. I made another bad pitch to Heisey and then it was really out of hand.Jace Peterson drove in the Braves only two runs off Scherzer. Atlanta scored twice in the ninth off closer Mark Melancon to pull within 6-4, but the right-hander ended the threat by getting catcher Anthony Recker to fly out with a man on first.That one inning got away from us real quick, Snitker said. It kind of happened before you knew it happened a little bit.INCIARTE STREAK TO 16Atlanta CF Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 16 games with a pair of singles in five at-bats.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles do not appear entirely convinced that the most critical call in their loss to the Detroit Lions was the correct one, and may be sending a clip of the play to the league for review.With 2:41 remaining and the Eagles nursing a two-point lead, Lions cornerback Darius Slay forced a Ryan Mathews fumble that was recovered by Detroit along the right sideline.Replay shows that the fumbled ball was first between the legs of Eagles center Jason Kelce while his arms were out of bounds before being secured by the Lions. By rule, if a player touches a loose ball while out of bounds, the offensive team keeps possession.Its a dead ball out of bounds. Thats the rule, said head coach Doug Pederson at his day-after press conference. That was one of the things I wanted to make sure this morning that I was correct and accurate in that ruling. Its just one of those things. But we cant cough the ball up.The play was reviewed, but Pederson was told that it wasnt touched by us.Pederson consulted with Eagles manager of football compliance John Ferrari, who used to work in the Park Avenue command center with vice president of officiating Dean Blandino, both during the game and on Monday morning. While Pederson has personally not seen definitive evidence that the ball touched Kelce, his conversations with Ferrari appear to have led him to that conclusion.The head coach was asked if he planned on sending a clip of the play to the league for review.Well send a few clips in out of this game, he responded, but again, thats not why we lost this football game.Blandino offered an explanation of the officials ruling via Twitter.Penalties were also a factor in this game. The Eagles were whistled for 14 penalties for 111 yards compared to two penalties for 18 yards for the Lions.We almost overcame it and won it, said Pederson, and thats a tribute to the football team.

The left-hander struck out four during his fifth straight start with six or more innings and two or fewer runs.Before the recent surge, Smyly went 0-7 with a 7.60 ERA in 10 starts from May 21-July 18.This game is full of streaks, Smyly said. Youve just got to ride out the good streaks and try and eliminate the bad ones.Brad Boxberger and Kevin Jepsen completed a three-hitter, with Jepsen allowing a single to Wil Myers and a homer to Yangervis Solarte in the ninth.Forsythe hit his fifth homer in his last 13 games off Luis Perdomo (5-7) to put the Rays up 3-1 in the second.Kiermaier had a three-run drive in a five-run eighth that made it 8-1.

Sydney Kings 92 - 78 NZ BreakersThe NZ Breakers have brought up skipper Mika Vukonas 300th club appearance in the worst possible way, going down 92-78 to the Sydney Kings.Last years NBL runners-up looked off the mark from the first moment in Auckland, as Kings guns Kevin Lisch and new import Josh Powell ran the show.Former NBA champion Powell brought up an impressive 17 points and three rebounds, while star recruit Lisch nailed 14 points.Power forward Greg Whittington also snared 22 points with 70 per cent shooting accuracy in a dominant display. The Breakers struggled to get within 10 points of the Sydney outfit, who look rejuvenated under the guidance of new boss Andrew Gaze.They lost all four quarters and relinquished the ball 17 times after falling behind the eight-ball with an insipid first-quarter.Despite pushing into an early six-point lead, the Breakers fell behind quickly as Lisch, Jason Cadee and Tom Garlepp drained from behind the three-point line.A 23-18 first-quarter scoreline quickly turned into a 14-point buffer in the second before a late Breakers rally sent the sides into the break at 50-42.The Breakers continued to haemorrhage points in the second half, spared only by the excellence of swingman Tom Abercrombie.Abercrombie threw 17 points, including a pair of three-pointers, as his side tried desperately to get back into the match.A closer third quarter, with just two points separating the sides, set the Breakers up for a potentially barnstorming finish at 72-62.New Zealand field goals to Alex Pledger, gun shooting guard Corey Webster and Akil Mitchell brought the margin to seven, but the lethal Whittington and Powell kicked into gear when their side needed them, restoring a 12-point buffer and killing off the match.New Zealand now head to Brisbane to take on the Bullets this weekend, while the Kings gear up for Illawarra at home on Monday.SYDNEY KINGS 92 (Whittington 22, Powell 17, Cadee 15) NEW ZEALAND BREAKERS 78 (Abercrombie 17, Webster 14, Mitchell 13)Melbourne United 78 - 70 Brisbane BulletsMelbourne United has claimed a third straight win in the National Basketball League with a 78-70 victory over the Brisbane Bullets in Melbourne on Thursday night.But the win may come at a price, with captain Chris Goulding being carried from the court with an ankle problem in the final term.The home side outscored the Bullets 29-10 in the pivotal second quarter, Goulding providing the spark with three triples and a key steal and veteran big man David Andersen nailing a three-pointer to give Melbourne a 41-26 advantage at the main break.Returning to the NBL after a distinguished career in Europe and the NBA, Andersen played his best game for United with 15 points, four rebounds, three steals and two blocked shots.Goulding finished with 13 points before going down injured.Behind a standout effort from former United player Daniel Kickert (23 points), Brisbane closed the margin to six points in the fourth quarter but key baskets to Ramone Moore and Cedric Jackson ensured victory for United.Former Chicago Bulls forward Cam Bairstow registered 15 points and 9 rebounds in 18 minutes for the Bullets as he plays his way back from a shoulder injury.Melbourne coach Dean Demopoulos was pleased with the way his side responded after losing their captain with eight minutes left in the match.As a group, our collective energy was really positive, he said.?Its something we work on ... today it happened to work for us and we absorbed the loss of Chris and kept going.Demopoulos was unsure of the severity of Gouldings injury with a home clash against Perth looming on Sunday.We feel real bad about Chris ... hopefully its not too long.Brisbane coach Andrej Lemanis saw plenty of positives in his teams performance apart from a damaging second quarter from United.I think we are still a new team that hasnt played together before, he said.As a result when things get going against us a little bit, we still havent found our identity to stop the momentum before it kind of gets out of control as it did tonight.We lost one quarter in the game, we got smashed in that quarter and thats the one right now that we have got to be able to work our way through.The Bullets will next face the New Zealand Breakers at home on Saturday night.MELBOURNE UNITED 78?(Andersen, Moore 15, Jackson 14) BRISBANE BULLETS 70?(Kickert 23, Bairstow 15, Beal 8) Wholesale Jerseys.

Nemanja Bjelica Jersey.Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Walt Williams Jersey. It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others.The Pittsburgh Penguins loaded up with veteran talent before the trade deadline and entered the playoffs with Stanley Cup expectations. Not aspirations, expectations. And those expectations were dashed when the Penguins were swept in the Eastern Conference Final. Off-Season Game Plan looks at what promises to be a challenging summer for GM Ray Shero. When the Penguins were unceremoniously swept by the Boston Bruins, it raised questions about what changes could be in store. Shero quickly signed head coach Dan Bylsma to a contract extension, a vote of confidence that really shouldnt have been necessary for the coach of a team that finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference. If there would be no change behind the bench, then perhaps it would be goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury on the chopping block, after another disappointing playoff performance. No chance. "The faith I have in Marc-Andre Fleury hasnt waned," Shero said. Bylsma had Fleurys back too, saying, "Hes the number one goalie for this franchise and he will be going forward." That makes it pretty clear that the Penguins will maintain the status quo in the crease. Taking that stance may force the Penguins hand in other areas, however. Defenceman Kris Letang, who has one year left on his current contract, but is looking at a possible contract extension this summer, may be too pricey for the Penguins and could be traded. Pittsburgh also has five unrestricted free agent forwards -- Pascal Dupuis, Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, Matt Cooke and Craig Adams. Given their current salary cap situation, the Penguins wont be able to keep all of them. They will have a lot of holes to fill if they dont keep any of them. Its not as though the Penguins should be looking to massively overhaul a roster that, fully healthy, was probably the most talented in the league, but its difficult to look at their playoff results and just try to maintain the status quo, because the Penguins are already the favourites for the 2014 Stanley Cup. The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- plus-minus, hits, blocked shots, giveaways, takeaways, penalty differential and faceoffs. (Stats are listed in this format: G-A-PTS, +/-, PIM, GP). Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be 70-plus, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90.

Over his career, Crosby has averaged 1.42 points per game, best among active players, and his 1.28 points per game in the playoffs is also tops among active players. While its a positive that Crosbys latest injury was about the jaw more than the concussions that have plagued him in recent seasons, health is an ongoing concern for the 25-year-old, who has missed 113 games over the last three seasons. For the sake of his career, a fully healthy season in 2013-2014 would be a refreshing change of pace. Riding shotgun with Crosby has worked out well for Chris Kunitz, a blue-collar winger who, despite Crosbys injuries, has scored 71 goals over the last three seasons, which is tied for 25th with Johan Franzen and Marian Hossa. Over those same three years, James Neal has scored 83 goals, which has him tied for 10th with Rick Nash and Jeff Carter. After a 40-goal season in 2011-2012, Neals ice time declined last season, perhaps a result of a more healthy Crosby and less healthy Evgeni Malkin, but Neal is a 25-year-old who has never scored fewer than 20 goals in an NHL season, making him one of nine players to surpass that threshold in each of the last five seasons. A shoulder injury caused Evgeni Malkin to miss 13 games, limited him in others (and he missed four games with a concussion), yet he still managed better than a point per game despite receiving his lowest ice time per game (19:42) since his rookie season. The Penguins made their decision on Malkins future, almost immediately after the season ended, signing him to a contract extension that will pay him $9.5-million per season starting in the 2014-2015 season; that decision emphasizes that the Penguins will hitch their wagon to their two generational centres and worry about filling in the spaces around them. Acquired when injuries (most notably Crosbys) shredded the Penguins scoring lines, Jussi Jokinen merely scored seven goals and 11 points in 10 games down the stretch, matching his point total in 33 games with Carolina. Jokinen is a versatile player and skilled enough to put up points playing with skilled linemates, but if he cant find a spot in Pittsburghs top six, then its harder to put him in a position to succeed, and thats why he was a healthy scratch about half the time in the playoffs. Drafted in the first round in 2010, Beau Bennett had 28 points in 39 AHL games and was spotted into the Pittsburgh lineup for 26 games, showing some promise, though if Bennett is expected to score in the NHL, some additional time in the AHL might help raise that facet of his game -- he scored 10 goals in 65 games between the AHL and NHL last season. Acquired as part of the trade for Jordan Staal last summer, Brandon Sutter got destroyed in puck possession measures but, playing behind Crosby and Malkin, hes not put in a position to succeed there. He gets the tough defensive assignments and his shifts start in the defensive zone more often than not and still tallied 11 goals in 48 games. Stocky checking forward Joe Vitale has 21 points and is minus-13 in 110 career games, the kind of production that puts a player on the fringe of the roster. He can provide a physical presence on the fourth line, or be stuck in the press box, depending on the day. Dressing for every game and playing 10 minutes per, Tanner Glass only scored two points, the lowest point production of any forward with more than 400 minutes last season. As the Penguins kept adding forwards throughout the season, Tyler Kennedy saw his role diminished. He played 12:28 per game, his lowest time on ice since his rookie season, he was a career-low minus-6 and his per-game point production (0.24 ppg) was a career-worst. He was effective, when given the chance to play, in the playoffs, but if the Penguins are looking to trim salaries, they may not be able to bring back a checking winger making more than $2-million per season, whether that means trading Kennedy or not tendering an offer. Dustin Jeffrey has been lingering around the edges of the Penguins lineup for five years, scoring 27 points in a total of 90 games; okay production considering he gets less than 12 minutes of ice time per game, but not enough to convince coaches that he deserves a bigger role. Filling out the forward spots will be a little challenging if the Penguins cant get any of their unrestricted free agents back. Pascal Dupuis is probably the first priority, after an outstanding season, but if Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Matt Cooke move on, that would still mean needing at least a couple top nine forwards, but potentially four or five. The challenge for the Penguins will be finding cost-effective solutions. Some external free agent wingers that might be worth a look include Clarke MacArthur, Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Danny Briere, Michael Ryder, Dainius ZZubrus, Ryan Jones, Colby Armstrong or Danny Cleary.dddddddddddd Thats a lot of names, but there could be a lot of spots to fill.

Admittedly, 2013 was a shortened season, but Kris Letang was one of them (Mike Green and Nicklas Lidstrom were the others) and its looking like he may not be back with the Penguins next season. Its possible that recent trade talk is leverage, to get Letang signed to a favourable deal, but hes going to be looking for something in the $7-million range, the kind of thing that offensive defencemen who play 25 minutes per game have come to command in this league. One more for Letang: in the last three seasons, Zdeno Chara is the only other defenceman to have at least 100 points and a cumulative plus-50 rating and if youre one of those who dislike plus-minus as a measure of a players effectiveness, Letangs shot differentials are plenty good too. A late-season wrist injury undermined a strong season from Paul Martin, who played a career-high 25:20 per game and scored at career-best rates across the board (0.18 gpg, 0.50 apg, 0.68 ppg) and was productive in the playoffs, with 11 points in 15 games. If Letang moves on, Martin becomes very important as a puck-moving blueliner for the Penguins. Often overlooked as part of the Alex-Goligoski-James Neal trade, Matt Niskanen played more than 20 minutes per game for the first time since his rookie season, 2007-2008. While Niskanen may not ever become the point producer that it looked like he might be when he scored 35 points in his second season, hes been an effective, albeit sheltered, puck possession defenceman pretty much all along. Despite getting eaten alive in his puck possession stats, and without scoring a single goal (until he scored the series winner against the Islanders in Round One), Brooks Orpik was still plus-17, the fifth time in the last six seasons that hes been a double-digit plus. Zdeno Chara (all six), Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook are the only other defencemen that can make that claim. Orpik is a crushing hitter who gets the tough defensive assignments for the Penguins. Simon Despres had his minutes protected, but he was effective enough in that limited role as a rookie. Hes now played 51 NHL games and should be ready for a more serious role next season. After a bit of an emergence in 2011-2012, when he scored a career-high 17 points and played a career-high 16:09 per game, Deryk Engellands role was reduced in 2013. Hes limited, but a tough guy who can scrap and play third pairing minutes. A defenceman with size, toughness and 235 AHL games on his resume, Robert Bortuzzo got into 15 games with Pittsburgh last season and didnt look out of place in a depth role. The challenge facing the Penguins is what to do with their blueline should they decide to move forward without Letang. They have a very deep crop of prospects at the position, so one could jump into the role or, if the Penguins dont get a defenceman back for Letang, they could hit the free agent market for a steady veteran -- Jordan Leopold, Andrew Ference or Ian White, perhaps -- or maybe the Penguins would be willing to pay on shorter term to bring Rob Scuderi back into the fold. Returning Goaltenders Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Cap Hit Tomas Vokoun 83.20 20 13 4 0 2.45 .919 $2.0M Marc-Andre Fleury 72.42 33 23 8 0 2.39 .916 $5.0M Since 2005-2006, Tomas Vokoun owns a .921 save percentage, the second-best among goaltenders with at least 250 games played in that span, so he was an overqualified No. 2 when he signed with the Penguins last summer. When Marc-Andre Fleury faltered in the playoffs, Vokoun stepped in, played a career-high 11 playoff games with a .933 save percentage. Over the last three regular seasons, Marc-Andre Fleury has a .916 save percentage, which ranks 16th in that time; not outstanding, but decent. The trouble, of course, comes in the playoffs. Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009, Fleury has played 31 games and posted an .880 save percentage, the worst among 25 goaltenders to play at least 10 playoff games over those four seasons. Ray Shero was adamant that the Penguins were pushing forward with Fleury, showing loyalty to a Cup-winning goaltender but, given his playoff performance, it sure seems like a risky proposition.

He should excel in his third junior season next year. Part of the Jordan Staal deal, Brian Dumoulin is a puck-moving defenceman with good size who may be ready to challenge for an NHL job after a decent first pro season. An offensive defenceman who can skate and handle the puck well, Derrick Pouliot was the eighth overall pick last year. Hell need time to round out his game, but his puck skills give him a chance to put up points when he arrives in the NHL. A smart defensive defenceman, Scott Harrington was a second-round pick in 2011, but isnt going to have an easy time climbing the organizational ladder, given some of the Penguins other defensive prospects. Nevertheless, after a couple of seasons in the AHL, he could be ready. A skilled forward who has 167 points in 127 games over the last two junior seasons, Anton Zlobin will get a chance to move up to the AHL to see if he can keep scoring. 2010 third-rounder Bryan Rust finished a strong junior season at Notre Dame, making him worth consideration if he continues his development. Theres a chance that 2011 seventh-round pick, Scott Wilson, could provide real value. Hes put up 76 points in 78 games through his first two collegiate seasons. Drafted in the sixth round in 2011, Josh Archibald had a breakthrough sophomore season at Nebraska-Omaha and will have a few more seasons to develop. Limited to just 11 AHL games due to injury, Tom Kuhnhackl has struggled to put it all together since his 2010-2011 junior season, but hes a skilled forward. If he could stay healthy for a season, he just might be able to recapture some of that promise. A second-round pick in 2009, 21-year-old Philip Samuelsson has put in two AHL seasons. Could be tough to climb ahead of the other defencemen in the organization though. DRAFTNo first-round pick.

Lamont Brightful Jersey. -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Peter Boulware Jersey.Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner.(Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays look to earn a split of their two game series against the San Francisco Giants when the two clubs meet this afternoon. The Blue Jays wasted a solid effort in the return of starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who was in action during yesterdays 2-1 loss, for the first time since April 21 because of a biceps injury. Johnson allowed two runs -- one earned -- and six hits in seven frames against the Giants, struck out six and did not walk a batter. Johnson surrendered a crucial homer to Torres early on. "If he hits it out there, you have to tip your cap to him," Johnson said of Torres homer that cleared the wall in center field. "Thats a pretty deep part of the ballpark." Johnson, though, said he felt good to get back to work despite the loss. "It felt good to be out there and to go to battle with these guys," he said. "Unfortunately I made a couple of mistakes I cant take back but they were huge." Toronto, which has lost four of five games, got on the board first thanks to Edwin Encarnacions solo home run in the first inning. Encarnacion has homered in back-to-back games and has three in the past four. Former Giants All-Star outfielder Melky Cabrera was back in the bay area for the first time and finished 2-for-4 at the plate. Cabrera, of course, was suspended last season for violating the leagues substance abuse policy and has been recently linked to a Florida clinic for performance-enhancing supplements. Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Alex Rodriguez have also been included in the report on the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic. In other Toronto news, shortstop Jose Reyes, who hasnt played since April 12, is coming along in his recovery with a left ankle injury. According to the clubs website, Reyes has been traveling with the team and performing daily strengthening drills. He is expected to begin a rehab assignment in a couple of weeks. "Its close, not that far away," Reyes told the teams site Tuesday. "The biggest thing is to be able to go out and run the bases on back-to-back days and go from there. If Im able to do that, even if Im not 100 percent I feel like I can help this ballclub. "Even at 85 to 90 percent, Im going to be on the field and Ill go to do my assignment and get back here as soon as possible." After the Jays wrap up this quick set in San Francisco, they will return to Rogers Centre for a three-game weekend set versus the Texas Rangers. it has been a rough two starts for Jays starter R.A. Dickey and he will take the mound Wednesday afternoon in hopes of turning his season around. Dickey has allowed six runs in each of his last two outings, going 0-2 with an 8.53 earned run average in that time, and is only 2-5 in his past seven decisions. Dickey was hammered at Atlanta on Thursday and gave up six runs and 11 hits in six innings of an 11-3 setback. "It hurts, because I felt like I was missing barrels today," Dickey said. "I mightt have given up four hard-hit balls all night.dddddddddddd It was just tough. It seemed like every ball off their bat would find a hole somewhere or a little space in the outfield." The knuckleballer is 4-7 with a 5.18 ERA in 12 starts and has pitched at least six innings in 11 of those. Dickey, who is 1-3 in five road starts, defeated San Francisco on May 14, when he struck out a season-high 10 batters over six innings of two-run ball in a 10-6 win. The right-hander and reigning NL Cy Young Award winner is 1-1 with a 3.81 ERA in four career starts against the Giants. Meanwhile, the Giants took the opener of this two-game set as Andres Torres two-run homer in the second inning stood as the game-winning hit and Tim Lincecum put together seven innings of one-run ball on the mound. He struck out six batters and issued just three hits and one walk. "Working my fastball to both sides of the plate, that was the biggest thing today," Lincecum said. "It opened up my secondary pitches. I expanded the zone and tried to stay aggressive." Lincecum had dropped his previous three starts. Jeremy Affeldt worked around a hit during a scoreless eighth inning and Sergio Romo did the same in the ninth for his 16th save. Gregor Blanco had a team- high two hits for the Giants, who were coming off Sundays 4-2 win over St. Louis and have prevailed in consecutive games since dropping two in a row and five of six. The defending World Series champion Giants are still two games behind Arizona for the NL West lead and will start a nine-game road trip Friday against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Giants catcher Buster Posey finished 1-for-4 on Tuesday and is the leading vote-getter in NL All-Star balloting. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval also leads the Senior Circuit in votes at his position and was back in action Tuesday after missing the weekend series against the Cardinals with a strained left foot. Sandoval was 0-for-3 versus the Blue Jays. Giants veteran starter Barry Zito was able to halt a personal winless streak his last time out and looks to build on a strong performance Wednesday versus the Jays. Zito was 0-2 with a 4.64 earned run average in six starts before holding Oakland to a run and three hits in six innings of Thursdays 5-2 win. Zito had given up 14 runs in his previous three starts and managed to defeat the Athletics despite having six walks to five strikeouts. The left-hander and 2002 AL Cy Young Award winner was rocked at Toronto on May 14 in a 10-6 loss and yielded eight runs -- five earned -- and 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Zito, who is 4-0 in seven home starts this season, has a 5-4 mark to go along with a 3.82 ERA in 12 career starts against the Blue Jays. The Giants are 7-0 when Zito toes the rubber at AT&T Park this season. San Francisco lost both of its meetings in Toronto from May 14-15 and is just 2-5 in the past seven matchups between the teams. The Giants were outscored, 21-9, in those two games north of the border. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
