NEW YORK – As of Thursday afternoon, Marcus Stroman was still scheduled to be the Blue Jays starting pitcher for Saturday afternoons game at Yankee Stadium. Ben Hutton Jersey . Stroman is facing a six-game suspension for throwing in the area of Caleb Josephs head on Monday night. The Orioles catcher wasnt hit by the pitch. Stroman has appealed the ruling and as of this posting, no scheduled time for the hearing had been made public. The crux of Stromans argument will be that he didnt intend to buzz Joseph. Speaking to a few of Stromans fellow pitchers, none of whom wished to comment on the record, he may be speaking the truth. The truth, however, may not set Stroman free because the intent, as he admitted, was to run the pitch inside on Joseph. Stroman claimed the pitch slipped. According to teammates whove been in similar situations throughout their professional careers, the most difficult pitch to throw is the one where theres intent to send a message. Naturally, adrenaline starts pumping with the anticipation of the games dynamic changing. Pitchers will tell you its easier to repeatedly paint the outside black of the plate than it is to throw at or near a batter. There seems to be two schools of thought on the Stroman-Joseph situation: one is that Stroman needs to better differentiate between perceived offences. Some require retaliation, some dont. The otheris if a teammate shows frustration, there must be a response. Jose Reyes was upset when he scored a run in the fifth inning, sliding headfirst into home plate. Joseph spiked him. Reyes believed it was intentional, that Joseph moved his leg and he reacted, engaging home plate umpire Ted Barrett. The best explanation, if "best" is the proper term, for the retaliation culture in baseball is "its the way the game has always been played." Make of that what you will. It isnt likely to change. Manager John Gibbons reiterated on Thursday that if Stroman isnt able to pitch, hell go with a bullpen by committee approach to Saturdays game. In such a scenario, its likely Todd Redmond who would get the start. Cabreras absence crippling the offence Gibbons can only work with what hes been given and with whos healthy. His lineup on a night-in, night-out basis since Melky Cabrera was injured leaves something to be desired. Illustrating the Blue Jays general lack of depth, which an injury often has done, the five through nine spots in the Toronto order are a combined 45-for-212 (.212) in the 13 games since Cabrera suffered a season-ending finger fracture. Eliminate the three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs, the least potent team the Jays have faced since Cabrera went down, and five through nine has gone 23-for-157 (.146). Gibbons has been left to resort to a series of platoons. In Thursday nights 3-2 loss to the Yankees, four players occupied the fifth spot in the batting order. Danny Valencia (0-for-2) was pinch hit for by Colby Rasmus in the seventh. Rasmus struck out and was replaced defensively by Steve Tolleson. In the top of the ninth, Juan Francisco pinch hit for Tolleson. He struck out. Avoiding "Yankeeography" The Blue Jays didnt take batting practice on the field before Thursdays series opener at Yankee Stadium. The club took a similar approach its last time in to the Bronx and snapped a 17-game road losing skid to the Yankees, taking two out of three in a series from July 25-27. "It worked," said manager John Gibbons. "We couldnt get over that hump, then we won a couple of games last time. Plus, at this time of year, guys are tired. Its not going to hurt them. Theyll hit in the cage." Hey, if it isnt broken, dont fix it. In July, one of the aspects Gibbons said he wanted his club to avoid was the series of "Yankeeography" documentaries which play on the massive centrefield video board during visitors batting practice. The stories have made-for-TV production quality and typically document an illustrious player in Yankees history or one of the franchises many decades of on-field success. While entertaining and fascinating for anyone interested in the history of the sport and the Yankees in particular, a daily dose can become tiring. Derrick Pouliot Jersey . Braden Calverts Winnipeg rink rallied to defeat Italy 8-7. After giving up three points in the second end, Calvert came back with a single, then stole two more points in the next two ends to tie it up at the fifth-end break. Henrik Sedin Jersey . Vinci also beat Dulgheru last week in Bucharest en route to her first WTA final in a year. Vinci next faces sixth-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan, who beat Czech qualifier Katerina Siniakova 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-2. No. . With a win tonight, Buehrle will match Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka for the most wins in the majors with 11. Buehrle is 10-4 with a 2.32 earned run average, but has lost his last three starts, including a 7-3 setback at Yankee Stadium last Wednesday. NEW YORK -- Kyle Lowry was nursing a sore knee and a bloody lip, with coach Dwane Casey saying his point guard looked like hed been through a "15-round bout." The Toronto Raptors dropped a 102-98 decision to Brooklyn on Friday giving the Nets a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoff series. And in the dressing room after the loss, and moments before he headed back to the team hotel with "a whole lot" of ice, Lowry called on his teammates to bring more fight as well. "Weve got to be more physical, theyre bringing their physical nature, weve got to bring our physical nature," Lowry said. "I think weve got to figure it out sooner, how were going to play from the jump to the finish. . . I figured out weve got to play physical from top to bottom." DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points and Patrick Patterson added 17 points for the Raptors, who rallied from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit to nearly steal a victory in Brooklyn. Jonas Valanciunas added 10 points and 10 rebounds for his third consecutive double-double of the series. Toronto was looking for its first playoff road win since Game 1 of their second-round series against Philadelphia in 2001, but trailed 77-66 with one quarter left against the Nets in the unfriendly confines of Barclays Arena. The Raptors dug themselves a 15-point hole in the fourth quarter before finally showing some fight, rallying to within a point with 34 seconds left in a final scrappy 12 minutes that saw 22 fouls called. "Weve got to be aggressive through the whole game, we cant wait until they pick up their aggressiveness and then we pick it up too," DeRozan said. "Weve got to be aggressive throughout the whole game. "Once they had their big lead, we tried to fight back and we cant put ourselves in that situation." Toronto forward Terrence Ross continued to struggle in the series, scoring five points in 21:36 of work. He also had two rebounds and three turnovers. The Nets led by 15 a couple of times in the fourth before the Raptors finally came to life, with Patterson draining a three-pointer to spark an 8-0 Raptors run that pulled Toronto within seven points with 2:31 on the clock. They continued to eat away at the point difference, pulling to within a point on a free throw by DeRozan with 20 seconds left. Patterson then missed two shots from the foul line with 19 seconds left that would have tied the game. "I missed them," Patterson said. "My first big free throws that I have ever missed in my life like that. Unfortunately, it sucks but all I can do is look forward to the next opportunity." A key moment down the stretch came with 47.3 seconds left when Torontos Greivis Vasquez was called for a foul on Deron Williams -- a call that outraged the Raptors bench, and Vasquez, who was subsequently slapped with a technical. "I was just trying to contain D-Will. He was trying to push me off a little bit but it was a basketball play," Vasquez said. When asked if he expected to receive the foul, Vasquez wouldnt say. "I dont want to talk about the referees. I dont want to lose any money at all, so next question," he said. "The referees are going to go to sleep fine, Im not going to go to sleep because we lost." Patterson was a little more vocal. "Is that something new?" he said on the officiating. "In regards to calls not going our way or us feeling a certain way about referees, it has been taking place all year long. For us to think its going to change in the playoffs, we are fooling ourselves." Joe Johnson topped the Nets with 29 points, while Williams had 22 and Paul Pierce finished with 18. Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Sunday in Brooklyn, then the series heads back to Toronto for Game 5 on Wednesday. The Raptors shot 46 per cent on the night while the Nets made good on 49 per cent of their shots. Toronto outrebounded Brooklyn 35-29. Turnovers again proved costly -- the Raptors gave away 16 points on 19 turnovers. "I thought 19 turnovers, a lot of those was getting backed off our mark," said Casey, his voice hoarse from hollering all night. "We just have to be stronger with the ball or, accordingly, turn around and play they way theyre playing, bumping and hitting in those situations. "I love the fight from my team," the coach added. "t;This team tried to throw haymakers at us and go at us and we did a good job of battling back and staying in the game and competing. Troy Stecher Jersey. ." Lowry went to the dressing room briefly after banging knees, but insisted he would be fine. Asked if he could play Sunday, he laughed and said "Is that a trick question?" When asked how much ice hed be leaving the arena with, Lowry replied: "A lot. A whole lot right now. Its part of the playoffs, man. Im happy, Im excited to be icing up around this time." The Raptors hadnt been concerned about playing on the road, going 22-19 in the regular season for a franchise record for wins, tied for the most among East teams. "We were a helluva good road team in the regular season," Lowry said. "Its the playoffs. We came in here tonight thinking we were going to win this game, and Sunday well come in and think were going to win on Sunday too." The Barclays Center though has been particularly kind to the Nets this season. They were unbeatable here for two months during the regular season, winning a franchise record 15 straight games on their home court. The Raptors knew a hostile crowd awaited them at Barclays Center in this playoff series that turned nasty before the first ball had even been tossed up. Prior to Game 1, Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri dropped his now famous F-bomb while referring to Brooklyn. According to social media, fans in Toronto resurrected Ujiris F-bomb in a chant Friday night at Maple Leaf Square, where hundreds of people braved the rain and wind to watch the game on the big screen outside the Air Canada Centre. The Nets went on to win the opener 94-87 and New Yorks tabloid newspapers had fun with their headlines the next day. The headline on the New York Daily News front page: "Dont F...... With Brooklyn! Nets give foul-mouthed Raptors a spanking to take Game 1." The New York Posts front page was a picture of a grinning Paul Pierce with the headline: "After Toronto GM insults Bklyn, Nets shut up Raptors. F.(at)K YEAH!" The Raptors evened the series with a 105-100 victory on Tuesday. Ujiri was fined $25,000 for the profanity, and Garnett said he was curious how fans in Brooklyn would react to the Toronto GM. "Very, very eager to see how they respond to the F Brooklyn," Garnett told reporters earlier in the week. "Very, very eager to see how they respond to this kid." Fridays crowd in Brooklyn, though, felt more festive than hostile. Outside the sleek US$1 billion Barclays Center, a steel drum band entertained people waiting in lines. Inside, a small pocket of fans chanted "U-S-A!" when Ross went to the free-throw line, but it was otherwise just the usual refrain of "Ref you suck!" The capacity crowd of 17,732 fans at the Barclays Center included pockets of red-clad Raptors fans, including one man that stood and used a lint roller on his red shirt in celebration of Toronto baskets -- a reference to Drakes use of a lint roller to clean his pants during Game 2 at the Air Canada Centre. Rihanna, Michael K. Williams, who played Omar in "The Wire," and Nate Ruess, the lead singer of Fun, were all seated courtside. Prime Minister Stephen Harper tweeted a good luck message to the team, posting: "Heres hoping the (at)raptors take the series lead tonight in Brooklyn. .wethenorth" The optics at the Barclays Center added to the drama. The black-accented court is brightly lit like a theatre stage while the crowd sits under dimmed lights, blending into the black walls of the arena. The ThunderStix given out to fans glow. DeRozan led the way with eight points in an opening quarter that saw neither team lead by more than a couple of baskets. The Raptors ended the frame with a 12-6 run to take a 23-19 lead into the second. A Ross three-pointer stretched Torontos lead to five points early in the second, but the Nets went on a 12-1 run to take an eight-point lead with just under a minute to play before halftime. Brooklyn went into the dressing room at the break up 49-45. The Nets continued to put distance on Toronto in the third, taking an 11-point lead on a floating jumper by Johnson with 6:22 left in the quarter. The Raptors chipped away to pull within four on a three by Greivis Vasquez, but the Nets ended the quarter with a 9-2 run to take a 77-66 lead into the fourth.
