  • TORONTO -- As a season to forget begins to wind down, R.A. Dickey achieved a small victory Wednesday. The Blue Jays knuckleballer tossed 5 1-3 innings in Torontos 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels to reach 200 innings for the third straight year. "In the AL East you probably wont find five or six guys who are able to top 200 innings," said Dickey, who didnt figure in the decision. "But its only a silver lining for a year that for the most part has been a struggle." C.J. Wilson (16-6) won his eighth straight decision and Kole Calhoun drove in two runs on sacrifice flies, including the deciding RBI in the eighth, as Los Angeles took its second straight against the Blue Jays. Mark Trumbo also hit a two-run home run for the Angels (69-76) a night after going 5-for-5 with four extra-hits and five runs scored in Tuesdays 12-6 series-opening victory. Moises Sierra had two doubles and a triple with an RBI for the Blue Jays (67-78), who had just four hits. Wilson (16-6) allowed four hits, four walks and four runs (three earned) while striking out six over seven innings to improve to 12-1 in 17 starts since June 14. "Of all the things weve talked about this year that havent worked out, C.J. is on the other side of that ledger," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of his left-hander. "Hes having just a terrific season, pitching deep into games. Hes going to (throw) 200-plus innings again. Every stat you look at is terrific for him." Dickey, meanwhile, allowed seven hits, two walks and four runs, but failed to pitch at least six innings for the first time in 15 starts. "We took two leads and coughed both those up," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "I thought they were starting to lock up on him a little bit. I thought that his first inning was pretty good and they started to chip away and I thought it was enough." Dickey didnt seem to agree with Gibbons though process. "The mangers decision is the managers decision," said the right-hander. "You have to ask him why he does or doesnt leave guys in or takes them out. "I definitely felt I had more left in the tank for sure." The game was out of Dickeys hands when reliever Steve Delabar (5-3) walked Mike Trout with one out in the eighth and Josh Hamilton moved him to third with a double to right. Trumbo was intentionally walked to load the bases and Calhoun hit a sacrifice fly to left to put the Angels up 5-4. Ernesto Frieri induced three pop flies in the ninth for his 32nd save. Dickey has thrown 202 1-3 innings this season with a record of 12-12 and an earned-run average of 4.36. Toronto left-hander Mark Buehrle has pitched 189 1-3 innings this season and is closing in on his 13th consecutive season with 200 or more innings. "Its hard to throw that many innings and not give your team consistent chances to win ball games and thats always something thats nice," Dickey said. "The innings need to be quality innings and for a lot of the year they have been and for some of the year they havent been so theres a lot for me to improve on. "But the one thing can is say is that you were able to take the ball every time it was your turn. That dependability I think is worth something, that durability. Mark Buehrle, this might be his 13th year (with 200 innings) and its hard to do that -- in the AL East in particular." The Blue Jays scored three runs in the first after Rajai Davis walked with one out and Adam Lind walked with two out. Sierra doubled in a run. Mark DeRosa singled to shortstop Erick Aybar score one run and Sierra came around to score and DeRosa took second on the wild throw to first. "In the first inning I was really erratic," Wilson said. "Id try to throw the ball down and away and it would be down the middle, and then Id try to throw the ball down the middle and it would be out of the strike zone, so there are some issues with that." The Blue Jays scored three runs in the first after Rajai Davis and Adam Lind walked and Sierra doubled in a run. Mark DeRosa singled to Erick Aybar to score one run and Sierra added Torontos third on the shortstops wild throw to first. Trumbo hit a towering two-run homer to centre in the second after Hamilton led off with a walk. It was Trumbos second homer of the series and his 33rd of the season. The Angels tied the game 3-3 in the fourth on a sacrifice fly to centre by Calhoun that scored Trout from third. The Blue Jays regained the lead a 4-3 in the bottom of the inning when Sierra tripled and continued home on an error by third baseman Andrew Romine. The Angels tied the score again in the fifth when Aybars sacrifice fly to left scored Grant Green. Notes: Attendance at Rogers Centre was 17,994. ....

"I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season.

The Knights had five weeks to kill between their second-round elimination in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs and Fridays Cup opener against the Val-dOr Foreurs. It was over seven weeks for Stolarz because of an eight-game suspension for slashing a Windsor Spitfire in a first-round game March 25. Jake Patterson finished out Londons playoff run, which lasted six more games. The OHL waived the final two games of Stolarzs suspension so he could play in the Memorial Cup. "To be honest, I just want to go out there and compete," said the 20-year-old from Jackson, N.J. "Obviously not playing, I think it was 56 days, was a little bit of a challenge, but I think over the last three and a half weeks of practice weve competed and battled and we couldnt be any more ready for this tournament." Stolarz backstopped the Knights to an OHL title in 2013 with a 13-4-1 post-season record. The Philadelphia Flyers prospect posted a goals-against average of 2.53 and a save percentage was .923. But the 19-year-old Patterson, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., played more games for the Knights this season. Stolarz represented the U.S. at the world junior hockey championship in January and was then sidelined for 17 games with a severe leg laceration. Patterson went 22-9-0-3 in the regular season and 2-4 in the playoffs. Pattersons experience combined with Stolarzss lack of recent games made Londons goaltending situation hazy for the Memorial Cup, until Knights coach Dale Hunter confirmed he would go with Stolarz as his No.dddddddddddd 1 again. "It was a tough decision, but Stolz is the guy," Hunter said. "Both of them have been very good in practice. "Stolz has been solid for us before he got hurt, and in the playoffs. Suspension and injury put him back, but three or four weeks have honed his game up really good." Stolarz and Patterson both have previous Memorial Cup experience. Stolarz started last years tournament in Saskatoon, but the six-foot-six goalie appeared to tire after the long playoff run. Patterson finished the tournament giving up one goal in a tiebreaker win over the host Blades and stopping 32 of 34 shots in a 2-1 semifinal loss to Portland. So if Stolarz cant recover his game quickly, Patterson is waiting in the wings. "You have to prepare for anything," Patterson said. "If Stoles were to get sick during the season or if I were to get sick and he had to start last minute, Im sure both of us would be ready. Its kind of the same situation right now." Hunter recruited former NHL goaltender Jeff Hackett to work with both goaltenders in their Memorial Cup preparation. "We did a lot of game-oriented drills where wed focus on plays that happen so often, rebounds, tips from the point," Stolarz said. "Working on things like that got us really prepared for the tournament."
