The Toronto Blue Jays will try to push their winning streak to four in a row tonight as they play the middle contest of a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays. After closing July on a six-game winning streak, the Blue Jays won consecutive games just twice in August, including the first two contests of their current winning streak. They extended their current run on Tuesday with an 8-2 victory over the Rays. Jose Reyes had a three-run homer, Dioner Navarro connected on a two-run shot and Danny Valencia added a solo homer for the Blue Jays, who are 5 1/2 games out of the American Leagues second wild card spot. R.A. Dickey earned the win after holding Tampa Bay to just two runs off two hits and three walks with six strikeouts over seven solid innings. "From a movement standpoint, I had a really good knuckleball tonight," Dickey said. Ryan Hanigan and Kevin Kiermaier each had an RBI for the Rays, who mustered just two hits and have dropped six of their last nine games. Jeremy Hellickson lasted just 3 1/3 innings as the right-handers struggles at home continued. He gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks to stretch his winless streak at Tropicana Field to 10 straight starts. "A lot of it was poorly-located pitches at the wrong time," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "That three-run home run was the difference in the game." Toronto will go for the series victory tonight behind right-hander Marcus Stroman, who struggled in his first career meeting with the Rays on Aug. 22. The rookie was hit hard in the 8-0 loss, charged with five earned runs, 10 hits and three walks over five innings of work. Stroman did rebound to beat Boston 5-2 on Wednesday and snap a string of three straight losing decisions. The 23-year-old held the Red Sox to two runs -- one earned -- on five hits over 7 2/3 frames with six strikeouts, moving to 8-5 on the season with a 3.88 earned run average. Countering for the Rays will be right-hander Chris Archer and hell be trying to put his most recent outing in the rearview. Archer had been charged with only one earned run in four straight outings, including a seven-inning no-decision at Toronto on Aug. 24, before getting lit up by Boston on Friday. Archer was hammered for eight runs -- seven earned -- and 10 hits over four innings in taking an 8-4 loss. "This game has a funny way of humbling you, and tonight was a very humbling experience. Im disappointed in myself," said Archer, who dipped to 8-7 with a 3.40 ERA on the year. The 25-year-old has never lost in seven previous meetings with the Blue Jays, going 2-0 with a 2.90 ERA. Though Toronto leads the season series 8-6, Tampa Bay has won four of the past six meetings. Jim Kelly Jersey . Catch all the action on TSN2 and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt.

Chris Ivory Bills Jersey . - Frankie (The Answer) Edgar dominated B.SAN FRANCISCO -- Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers would prefer to be talking about how well Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played against the Golden State Warriors. Or how his team has defended Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Or just about anything that has happened on the court in the first-round playoff series. Instead, Rivers and his players spent Saturday talking about how they would respond to an audio recording of a man identified as Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to games. "The fact that I had to spend 45 minutes in a meeting instead of watching film did not make me happy," Rivers said. Whether the comments -- which drew sharp criticism and calls for action from around the NBA -- effect the Clippers in Game 4 against the Warriors is all that worries Rivers right now. Los Angeles leads the series 2-1 and has looked every bit like a championship contender in winning the past two games. Chasing a title is the reason Rivers said players decided against protesting or even boycotting the game. They want to win for each other, he said, and not for Sterling or anyone else. "For me, I want to focus on my guys. I came here for them. They came here for each other. Our goals have not changed," Rivers said passionately after the Clippers practice at the University of San Francisco. "Its like one of the players said, Hey, when I was a kid, I had a goal to win a world championship. It was to do that. It wasnt to win a world championship for someone." Clippers point guard Chris Paul, the president of the National Basketball Players Association, released a statement through the union that said "this is a very serious issue which we will address aggressively." Paul and Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin declined further comment on the issue after practice. Other players were not made available as Rivers said he would speak for the team. "A lot of guys voiced their opinions. None of them were happy about it," Rivers said. "This was a situation where were trying to go after something very important for us, something that weve all dreamed about all our childhoods.dddddddddddd Donald or anyone else had nothing to do with that dream, and were not going to let anything get in the way of those dreams." Sterling, a real estate owner who has a decades-long history of alleged discrimination and offensive behaviour, made his team the centre of NBA attention for all the wrong reasons again. In a recording posted on TMZs website, a man reported to be Sterling questions his girlfriends association with minorities. Clippers President Andy Roeser said in statement that the team did not know if the tape is legitimate or has been altered. Roeser also said the views expressed on the recording do not reflect Sterlings beliefs and that the woman on the tape -- identified by TMZ as V. Stiviano -- "is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would get even." Sterling has not commented on the situation. Left in the aftermath was Rivers and his players facing more than 50 reporters at the Clippers practice Saturday. A day earlier, only about a dozen were at the teams hotel for the interview session. Most players ignored the added attention. Jamal Crawford looked over and laughed. Hedo Turkoglu jokingly shouted and smiled as he attempted shots. All that the hoopla meant for the Clippers as a team, Rivers said, was one monumental "distraction" before its biggest game of the season. "In a weird way, Im sure Golden State is having a ball right now because were not talking about them," Rivers said. Warriors coach Mark Jackson, who played for the Clippers from 1992-94, said "theres no place" for Sterlings alleged remarks but his team would remain focused on the game. His players echoed those sentiments, saying they wouldnt be deterred by one mans beliefs -- no matter how offensive. Rivers also said the audio recording would not serve as motivation for his team. "Were playing Golden State, and Golden State is our enemy right now," Rivers said. "Thats where were going to keep it, and thats where we want to keep it."
