Brandon Morrow tries for his first road win since June 2012 when the Toronto Blue Jays go for a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. Cheap Derek Carr Jersey . Morrow didnt get a decision at Minnesota on Tuesday when he allowed four hits and two runs in 3 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander saw the Blue Jays win, 9-3, but Morrow was removed after throwing 98 pitches on the cold night at Target Field. Hes 1-3 with a 3.92 ERA in 12 games (6 starts) against the Indians. Morrow is 0-5 over his last eight road starts and hasnt won an away contest since June 6, 2012 when he tossed a two-hit shutout against the White Sox. Carlos Carrasco counters on the hill for the Indians. The righty is seeking his first win as a starter since June 29, 2011 at Arizona. Carrasco snapped a personal nine-game skid with a relief victory against the Angels on Aug. 20 last season, but he has taken either a no-decision or a loss in each of his last 15 starting assignments. In his last start, on April 11 versus the White Sox, Carrasco gave up six hits and five runs in 4 2/3 innings to lose for the second time in as many starts this season. His lone appearance against the Blue Jays resulted in a hefty loss when he surrendered seven hits and five runs in just three innings. The Indians have left 19 men on base through the first two games of this set and are in danger of being swept by the Blue Jays for the first time since May 3-5, 2010, with that series also taking place in Cleveland. On Saturday, Dioner Navarro drove in three runs to back another stellar start from Mark Buehrle in a 5-0 final. Buehrle (4-0) spun seven-plus scoreless innings, surrendering just four hits and three walks while striking out three to remain unbeaten on the season. The veteran left-hander has given up just two runs in four starts this year. "Hes just locked in right now," Toronto manager John Gibbons said of Buehrle. "One thing about Buehrle is he pitches to win. He doesnt pitch for stats. You get guys in this game who pitch for stats, he pitches to win and you need more guys like that." Jose Bautista added an RBI and two runs scored and Jose Reyes, whod been on the disabled list since aggravating a left hamstring injury on Opening Day, also knocked in a run for the Jays, who had lost two straight before claiming Fridays series opener. Cleveland starter Corey Kluber (1-2) yielded all five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and three walks over 6 2/3 frames to absorb his first home loss since May 31, 2013 against Detroit. Asdrubal Cabrera recorded one of the four hits for the Indians, who have lost three straight and seven of their last nine games overall. "You just cant fall into the frustration and letting that affect you," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said of his teams recent struggles. "Its easy in this game (to get frustrated) and were going to have to fight through that." Cleveland won four of the six meetings last season.

Cleveland won four of the six meetings last season. Cheap Raiders Jerseys . -- Orleans Darkwa ran in from 1 yard with 1:45 left, and the Miami Dolphins rallied from two scores down in the final minutes to beat the Dallas Cowboys 25-20 on Saturday night. Cheap Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey . The Raptors have to get through the pesky New York Knicks Wednesday at Madison Square Garden and can lock up the third spot in the Eastern Conference with a win or a Chicago loss in Charlotte.WASHINGTON -- Check two more items off the list in an impressive homestretch by the Boston Bruins. They are now Atlantic Division champions, and Jarome Iginla has recovered from his slow start to reach 30 goals once again. Boston accomplished those feats Saturday against the Washington Capitals, a desperate team whose first and foremost goal -- making the playoffs for a seventh straight season -- looked a bit more distant after Saturdays 4-2 loss. "We need these wins so bad," Washington defenceman Karl Alzner said, "that sometimes you overplay. It can be a big problem that can really mess your game up." And its not a good idea to mess up against the Bruins, who have won 14 of 15 and have allowed only 13 goals over 11 games. Iginla scored twice, and Carl Soderberg added a goal to give Boston a 3-0 lead in the second period, more than enough to hold off a surge from a Washington team that woke up too late. The Bruins had already clinched a playoff spot, so the division title didnt create so much as a celebratory ripple in the locker room. "We dont even talk about that. I wasnt even -- I knew there was something that would happen if we won tonight, but we find out now weve clinched and thats fine," coach Claude Julien said. "Again, weve got an opportunity to do even more than that." Patrice Bergeron added a third-period goal to extend his goal-scoring streak to a career-high six games, and Chad Johnson made 31 saves. Iginla reached the 30-goal mark for the 12th time, a nice comeback after scoring only four in the first 24 games this season. "When you look at the start he had, nobody would have predicted that," Julien said. "But hes a pretty streaky goal-scorer." Iginla now has 10 goals in nine games. "Ive been getting some good bounces lately, and its been a fun year," he said. "Fun to win games and be at the top of the league, and to be on some streaks as a group." Washington began the day tied with Columbus, Detroit and Toronto in what has essentially become a four-way race for two playoff spots, but the Capitals would lose a tiebreaker against all three teams. The Bruins gave the CCapitals top-rated power play only three chances, and they corralled Alex Ovechkin enough to keep the NHLs leading goal scorer in a 5-on-5 slump. Cheap Marshawn Lynch Jersey. Ovechkin has 48 goals this season, but hasnt scored at even-strength since Feb. 27. The Capitals had no shots on goal in the first 6 minutes and only two after 14 minutes. The game was scoreless after the first period solely because of goalie Braden Holtby, but he could hold down the fort for only so long. A turnover at centre ice allowed Soderberg to spring Iginla for a breakaway that opened the scoring in the second period. A few minutes later, Soderberg redirected an already deflected shot by Bergeron on a power play to make it 2-0, and Iginla made it a three-goal lead by stuffing in his own rebound 41 seconds later. Washington coach Adam Oates said he was "shocked" at how poorly his team started. "I thought our forechecking was lousy," Oates said. When the Capitals finally turned up the intensity, it came from the third line that has led the team in recent weeks. Jason Chimera put Washington on the board with 10 seconds remaining in the second period, and a dominant shift by Chimeras line drew a penalty on Andrej Meszaros in the third. But the Capitals couldnt score during the man-advantage, and soon the Bruins had a power play of their own. With Ovechkin off for charging, Bergeron put in a rebound to restore the three-goal cushion. Oates said the penalty on Ovechkin was a "terrible" call. "I dont like the call, but he called it," Oates said. "He saw something that I dont agree with now, but our job is to kill it." NOTES: Evgeny Kuznetsov scored his second NHL goal in the final minute. ... Capitals D Jack Hillen sat out with an upper-body injury sustained in a collision with Ovechkin during overtime of Tuesdays loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Hillen was replaced by John Erskine, who had been out with a lower-body injury and played for the first time since March 5. ... The Capitals are the last team to beat the Bruins in regulation, a 4-2 win on March 1. Since then, Boston has outscored opponents 54-20 in non-shootout goals. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
