TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays and the Houston Astros will not meet again this season after Sunday -- unless it is in the postseason.The Blue Jays are in the American League East and the Astros are in the AL West, but each of the seven games between them in the regular season has postseason implications.Toronto sits in a wild-card spot and entered Saturday a half game behind the Baltimore Orioles for first in the Al East.The Astros entered Saturday two games removed from a wild-card spot.The Blue Jays won three of four from the Astros last week in Houston and the teams will be playing a rubber match Sunday in a three-game series at Rogers Centre,Toronto stopped the Astros four-game winning streak on Saturday when they prevailed 4-2 on the strength of Aaron Sanchezs strong seven innings and a three-run home run by catcher Russell Martin.Martin also threw out Jose Altuve trying to steal second base in the third inning. He caught Altuve trying to steal third Friday in Houstons 5-3 win.Martin has thrown out three of the last six runners who tried to steal in the last six games, Before that, he had thrown out only five of 46 runners in his first 85 games of the season.Russ had a huge day on a day when we needed it, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.Martin, who struggled at the plate earlier in the season, could be a key player for the Blue Jays down the stretch.Since May 25, he has hit .340 (18-for-53) with runners in scoring position.Every games different, Martin said after the game Saturday. Its a long, grueling season. Some days you feel great and you dont do so well. Some days you dont feel good and you do pretty well. I didnt feel good waking up this morning. But I feel much better now.Gibbons said the reason Martin played Saturday afternoon after a Friday night game is that Thursday was a day off.Martins home run came on a 3-and-2 slider from James Hoyt. The Astros are short in the bullpen with Ken Giles missing the series on paternity leave to be with his expectant wife.Well, hes got to pitch, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. A lot of times when you lose some guys, youve got to slot guys in some roles that are unaccustomed. Hes more than equipped to get those guys out. He made one bad pitch today and it cost us three runs.The Astros also will probably again be without outfielder Jake Marisnick who missed his third straight game with a right groin strain.The will be sending out right-hander Mike Fiers (8-5, 4.46 ERA) to start the series finale on Sunday at Rogers Centre.Fiers has faced Toronto once this season, taking the loss Aug. 4 after allowing five hits and two runs while striking out seven in six innings. Five days later he earned the win over the Minnesota Twins. He allowed three home runs among his five hits and was charged with four runs.In three career outings, including two starts, against the Blue Jays, he is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA.The Blue Jays will counter with right-hander Marcus Stroman (8-5, 4.76 ERA) who will be trying for his first win since July 20. In the three starts since, he is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA. He took the loss in Kansas City last Sunday when he allowed seven hits, two walks and three runs in five innings. The Royals won 7-1. In two career starts against the Astros, he is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA. J.J. Jansen Jersey .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. Torrey Smith Jersey . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. http://www.cheapcarolinapanthersjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-russell-shepard-jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Ryan Kalil Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. Cam Newton Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. As far as learning curves go, Daryl Gibson has already travelled both a slippery slide and rapid ascent in his first season as a head coach.The step up to the top job at NSW Waratahs was never going to be easy given the way Michael Cheika had first transformed the franchise from Super Rugby laughing stock to hardened rugby outfit and then delivered a maiden Super Rugby title while instilling a style of play that was not just the talk of Australian rugby but also the nations ultra-competitive sporting market, too.Gibson may as well have been following Sinatra on stage.Adding to that was a swathe of new playing personnel, changes to the backroom staff, injuries to star Wallabies Bernard Foley and Kurtley Beale - and then some choice comments landed him in Eddie Jones crossfires prior to Englands arrival Down Under.Yeah, good question, Ive made plenty of mistakes this year and, I guess, from those things, thats good experience in the fact that Im learning from that, Gibson told ESPN earlier this week when asked about the step up to the top job.But Ive really enjoyed the role of the head coach. Its very different to an assistant. You probably do less coaching but a lot more managing and you can probably have a greater influence on the whole squad.I think one of the real positives is that weve managed a lot of change this year with Cheik leaving, we had to bring a number of support staff in and we lost 15 players to retirement or overseas and there was a lot of experience in that 15.So to manage and to make sure we stay true to the culture that we have set up here, its been a really big learning curve. And I think next year well see a similar sort of turnover and then go through a period of really nice stability in years to come.Gibson had access to his entire squad for the first time in a month earlier this week when the Waratahs Wallabies returned to Moore Park to begin preparations for the final three weeks of Super Rugbys regular season.Beaten 3-0 by Jones England, it hasnt taken long for the Wallabies to crash back to earth following their thrilling run to last years Rugby World Cup final.Luckily for those Waratahs involved the recent series whitewash, a Super Rugby season that still has a heartbeat will be a welcome distraction while Gibson has expressed surprise at their condition given the physical nature of the three Tests against England.Theyve come back very well, all with a real keen attitude to get playing again, he told ESPN.I guess coming off the disappointment of the Test series, they really want to get back and play. I expected them to be a bit more beat-up than what they were, but Im really pleasantly surprised that theyre keen to get into it and on that, just about all of them will play, or start, which is really positive.The Waratahs first assignment is also clearly the easiest of their closing three rounds given it comes against Japans Sunwolves.Being played in Tokyo, it is also just the Waratahs second overseas fixture - New Zealand excluded - after they had just one match in South Africa against the Stormers.And it should also afford them the opportunity to fine-tune a game plan that finally clicked in what was easily their best performance of the season - a 45-25 victoory over the Chiefs in the final round of fixtures before the June Test window.ddddddddddddeah, I think we tried, against the Crusaders, a week before [the Chiefs], to play quite a defensive game, to kick a lot more, and it really didnt suit us, Gibson said.We didnt play particularly well and we were well beaten. So against the Chiefs, we really went back to saying hey, this is the style of play that we really want to play against a team who we respect around a number of things.So really it was a case of well, if were going to progress in this competition, were going to do it in the way that we want to be known for and the style of play; thats very much using the ball positively, whether thats going through a team or going around the edges, and keeping the ball alive, continuity, combined with that go-forward and using our big forwards to rumble on.Following their Tokyo outing, the Waratahs return home to face the Hurricanes before heading offshore once more to tackle the Blues in Auckland.The state of Super Rugby ladder suggests that only one Australian team will reach the playoffs, and with the Brumbies -- who currently sit level on 34 points with NSW -- having a much easier run home, its likely Gibsons side will need three wins to reach a third straight postseason.But drawing on the learnings from 2014, when the Waratahs won nine straight to lift the title, Gibson knows the Waratahs will be primed for a crack at the finals if they can negotiate a tricky final three rounds.Back in 2014 we went on an amazing run, I think we won nine straight and we built a lot of momentum and a lot of belief out of quite a lot of adversity really, he told ESPN.We werent playing very good rugby in the early rounds and we struggled our way through; I think we came off a loss to the Force and then went on a winning run. So for us, and in my experience, coming into finals its all about momentum and getting really confident and positive about your play.I guess the challenge for us with the returning Wallabies is harnessing their energy and getting the best out of them while also the guys whove been holding the fort, so to speak, and making sure that they also carry the team.Whether they fall short in a quest for a third straight finals appearance, or record the three wins theyll likely need to progress and challenge for the title, Gibson has already endured a crash course in head coaching.More to that, its opened his eyes to the greater challenges at play in Australian rugby, specifically NSW, and what he needs to do if the Waratahs are to be perennial contenders under his reign.Well certainly part of our challenge here at NSW is to set up the pathways and systems so that we can have long-term success, he said.I think weve got a way to go, but were certainly growing and starting to align more with the very successful teams in Super Rugby.I guess the luxury we have here is the fantastic player base that we do enjoy and its making sure that we maximise that advantage and I think that weve still got plenty of growth (to go) and were still finding out what is the best way to do that.
