NEW YORK – The Blue Jays entered Thursdays series finale at Yankee Stadium losers of eight of their last 11 games. Theyd dropped 15 in a row in the Bronx dating back to 2012 and had seen their lead over their pinstriped rivals in the American League East dwindle to two and a half games. This is a slump. Its lasted for about two weeks. The downturn comes on the heels of a terrific May, when Toronto won 21 of 30 games and Edwin Encarnacion captured the imagination of fans with his 16-home run month. This is not is the end of the world, nor does this slump suggest a long-term trend. This is on the offence and thats a good thing because theres too much talent in the Blue Jays lineup for the widespread malaise to continue. To wit: The starting pitching has been fine. You could say its been good and you wouldnt be wrong. In the last 11 games, Jays starters have allowed four or more earned runs only twice and have pitched to a staff ERA of 3.71. The starting pitching was supposed to be the weakness. So far it has held up. The Jays have hit only four home runs in their last 11 games. Not surprisingly, three of the home runs came in two of the three victories. Toronto continues to lead baseball with 93 team home runs, which is crucial to the clubs attack. Of the 338 runs the Jays have scored this season, 147 (43.4 per cent) have come via the long ball. Jose Bautista hasnt hit a home run in 11 games, his longest power drought of the season. Hes still hitting for a respectable average, .275 with five of his 11 hits going for doubles, but the Jays miss his power bat as the club struggles, having scored three or fewer runs eight times in the span. This is a phase, both for the individual and for the ballclub, Bautista said, that was bound to happen. "If you can execute every single day for 162, youd probably win 140 games," said Bautista. "We dont expect to execute every single day. But we do have to pick it up. Its one thing, were running into some St. Louis good pitching, some other pitching staffs. I dont want to speak badly or worse about the Yankees or the Orioles but its not the same. We faced much better pitching at home during the last homestand than we have on this road trip, except for Tanaka, who did a tremendous job. So we shouldve won some of these games that we lost." It hasnt helped, either, that Edwin Encarnacion has hit only one home run in the last 11 games. "Weve lacked some timely hitting," said Bautista. "Our pitching has been there enough, I think, that we shouldve won some of these games that weve lost. We just need to keep going on offence. We got really hot at one point and kind of hitting a little cold spurt now. Weve just got to overcome it and not get 10 hits a day but get them when you get the baserunners on." Bautista has repeatedly acknowledged hes bought in to hitting coach Kevin Seitzers philosophy of using all fields. The slugger has become a better all round hitter. His 1,000th career big league hit, achieved in the eighth inning of Wednesday nights loss, was a double to right field. That alone would have been a story last season. This year its commonplace. "I think Im more aware of some situations where people are going to keep challenging me inside, especially when Im behind in the count or theres the right situation when theres a defensive shift," said Bautista. "Why not try to go over there and it ended up working out again? But the previous at bat I tried going that way and I hit into a force out, when Melky got forced out at second. So it works sometimes, sometimes it doesnt." Its difficult to watch a team go into a funk, especially when it had become customary for fans to watch Toronto out-slug and, often, out-pitch opponents. Despite the recent struggles, the Jays offence remains top 10 in important statistical categories: Home runs – 93 (1st)On-base percentage - .329 (5th)On-base plus slugging percentage - .760 (2nd)Walks – 243 (9th) Damarious Randall Browns Jersey . 98 jersey in a game yet, and already its a big seller.

Antonio Callaway Browns Jersey .com) - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova and former world No.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kemba Walker scored 30 points and the Charlotte Hornets rolled to a 109-91 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday to snap a four-game losing streak. Al Jefferson added 20 points and 12 rebounds in the win as the Hornets led for the final 41 1/2 minutes of the game. Our readiness was good to start the game and when the guys came off the bench we sustained our play well and we were able to play from ahead, said Hornets coach Steve Clifford. They earned just their third win in the last 17 games, shaking off Wednesdays loss to Phoenix, when they blew a 17-point lead. The loss dropped the Sixers to 0-14 at home this season. They are five losses from matching the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks (0-19) for the worst home start in NBA history, but they wont be getting closer to the mark any time soon. Starting Sunday in Orlando, they play seven straight games on the road. Robert Covington and Tony Wroten scored 19 points apiece to lead Philadelphia and Michael Carter-Williams had 14 points and 10 assists. The Sixers went 0-3 on a homestand and have lost five in a row since getting their second win of the season on Dec. 6 in Detroit. The first half set the stage for the loss, said Sixers coach Brett Brown. I thought the second half was better. We searched and found a group that got us (closer). They traded guard Alexeyy Shved to Houston on Friday as part of the three-team deal that sent Corey Brewer from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Rockets.dddddddddddd In return, the Sixers got injured forward Ronny Turiaf from Minnesota and a 2015 second-round draft pick from Houston. The Sixers also acquired the rights to Spanish League player Sergei Lishchuk, who was drafted 10 years ago but has never played in the NBA. Walker scored 12 in the first quarter and Marvin Williams went 3-for-3 on 3- pointers, helping the Hornets take a 37-26 lead. Walkers layup capped a 7-0 run during the quarter that gave Charlotte the lead for good at 20-15. It dipped briefly into single digits at the start of the second quarter, but the Hornets bench scored 16 points in the frame and Charlotte led 66-46 at halftime. The Sixers trailed by as many as 24 points in the third quarter but JaKarr Sampson led a 10-0 run at the end of the quarter to get them within 13. Charlotte scored the first two points in the fourth and it was never closer. Game Notes The Hornets were without guard Lance Stephenson, who suffered a pelvic strain during Wednesdays game ... Turiaf had surgery Tuesday on his right hip and will miss the rest of the season ... Charlotte has won three in a row against the Sixers and five of the last six meetings.
