CLEVELAND -- Marcus Stroman wanted to stay in the game after throwing his 100th pitch. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons didnt agree -- and paid dearly for it.Brett Cecil gave up a two-run homer to Jose Ramirez with two out in the eighth inning, allowing the Cleveland Indians to beat Toronto 3-2 in their series finale Sunday afternoon.The Blue Jays maintained their one-half game lead over Boston in the AL East, but lost twice in their three-game showdown with AL Central-leading Cleveland.Stroman worked 7 1/3 innings, striking out nine, and left with the bases empty and a 2-1 lead. Cecil entered and gave up a single to Francisco Lindor, followed by Ramirezs 384-foot shot onto the home run porch in left.I worked extremely hard to get my body ready to go seven to nine innings, the right-hander said flatly. I felt good, but at the end of the day, we lost the game. Its extremely frustrating. I felt fine. I felt fine.Cecil (1-7) exited the clubhouse and boarded the team bus without speaking to the media. The left-hander has allowed five homers in 26 1/3 innings and has a 5.13 ERA.Gibbons was eager to explain why he removed Stroman, who has thrown more than 100 pitches eight times this season and has a 9-5 record.I thought Stroman was great, he did everything right today, Gibbons said. I just figured with (lefty Jason) Kipnis coming up, we could use it to our advantage and also swing their next couple of guys around at the plate. They got the best of us.Melvin Upton Jr. led off the third by homering off Indians starter Corey Kluber. It was his third home run since being acquired from San Diego and his 19th on the year.AL MVP Josh Donaldson, who missed the previous two games with a jammed right thumb, extended Torontos lead to 2-0 later in the inning with an RBI single.Mike Clevinger (2-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win, while Cody Allen worked the ninth for his 24th save. Allen walked Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion with two out before inducing a game-ending lineout by Russell Martin.The series had a postseason-like atmosphere with thousands of Blue Jays fans at Progressive Field. All three games were decided by one run.Shout out to Canada for coming down and supporting us this weekend, Stroman said. The Indians are a team were going to be battling with down the road, so hopefully well see them in the playoffs.Toronto went 3-3 on its six-game road trip.MASS CONFUSIONHome plate umpire Ramon De Jesus called time while Encarnacion was batting in the seventh. Clevinger stepped off the rubber and was called for a balk by third base umpire Greg Gibson after time was given, and Ryan Goins trotted home from third. After a lengthy discussion, Goins was sent back to third and Clevinger struck out Encarnacion on the next pitch. I dont think anybody knows what went on, Gibbons said. Indians manager Terry Francona explained, They called a balk, but thank goodness there was a timeout. I just wanted to find out why he called it. Gibbons didnt think the sequence cost his team the game. You cant pick at that type of stuff, he said.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: OF Kevin Pillar (jammed left thumb) went 4 for 5 with two RBI at Lakeland in the first game of his rehab assignment with Single-A Dunedin. He could rejoin the Blue Jays on Tuesday.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP R.A. Dickey opens a three-game home series against the Angels on Tuesday. Dickey has made a team-high 25 starts.Indians: RHP Carlos Carrasco, who has a 1.97 ERA on the road, pitches at Oakland in the first game of a three-game series Monday. Nolan Ryan Jersey . JOHNS, N.

Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. Ash Taylor doesnt expect to know whether hell be the starting halfback for Gold Coast, or who his partner might be, until after the clubs final trial in February against the Warriors.Last seasons NRL rookie of the year is engaged in a battle with 2016 partner Tyrone Roberts and the returning Kane Elgey for the two halves spots.And while he is favoured to at least take out one of the positions, he is on limited duties due to an end-of-season groin operation.Once I get back on the field, Im going to train the house down and try and get that No.7 jersey, he said.In his first-grade debut at the club in 2016, Taylor helped guide the Titans to their first finals appearance since 2010.He set up 16 tries and broke through 23 tackles, but didnt believe it would be enough to guarantee his position come round one.Instead, he believes the selection could come down to the Titans only scheduled trial with the Warriors on February 19, while a number of their big names are also expected to be on show at the Auckland Nines.It will just be combinations and how the team reacts to the halves, Taylor said.Thatt will be the biggest thing - who reacts better.ddddddddddddWhen the trials do come around, Im going to have to play the house down and Im sure the other boys will try to as well.Coach Neil Henry has previously suggested Roberts could be used in a utility role, given hooker Nathan Friends retirement at the end of last season.It is a more-likely option, given Elgey and even Taylor admits they do not offer the same utility value.However dummy-half Nathan Peats isnt willing to give up his minutes so easily, saying on Friday he wants to return to being an 80-minute hooker at the Titans.I believe Im an 80-minute hooker, Peats said.But it comes down to how I train and how I perform to get that fitness up and what the coaching staff is thinking.Ive got to back it up with my performance at training and hopefully go well at trials.Peats was a regular 80-minute player at Parramatta in 2015 before the salary-cap dramas forced him out of the club midway through last season.
