TORONTO -- Cory Rasmus needed time to appreciate the significance of his first appearance at Rogers Centre. Manuel Wintzheimer Jersey . A rookie reliever with the Atlanta Braves last May, Rasmus left the mound angry after giving up a home run to Edwin Encarnacion and a double to his older brother, Blue Jays centre fielder Colby Rasmus, in an eventual 9-3 interleague loss for Atlanta. Now with the Los Angeles Angels, Cory is back in Toronto for a four-game set against Colbys Blue Jays. And one year later, the younger Rasmus (by 15 months) feels a lot different about his last outing at Rogers Centre. "To be honest with you, I didnt really get to enjoy the moment like I wish I would have, but to have an opportunity to come up here and maybe face him again is awesome," Cory Rasmus said hours before first pitch Friday. "Hopefully I can embrace it a little more and I wont be so uptight about everything, because looking back on it, it was awesome. Brothers dont get to face each other too often in the big leagues." Rasmus made his major league debut a week before the Toronto outing last year, and was traded to the Angels the following month. He finished the 2013 season with a 5.40 ERA through 21 2/3 innings. Since being called up by the Angels a week ago, the 26-year-old, whos endured three shoulder surgeries over the last seven years, has pitched two scoreless innings, giving up two hits and striking out one. With Colby Rasmus on a hot streak as well -- batting .391 with a .417 on-base percentage and .913 slugging percentage over the last seven days -- both brothers say theyre looking forward a possible rematch of last years at-bat. The two had breakfast together Friday morning, and younger brother Cyle, whos just finished his college career at Columbus State University, will be in the Rogers Centre stands taking in the action this weekend. Colby Rasmus says the playing field between him and Cory is a bit more even these days. "I didnt really like (facing him) a whole lot last year." he said. "Ive had the good fortune of hanging around the big leagues a bit longer and he was having struggles with his shoulder. Hed just been in the minor leagues, it wasnt really a fun time." Cory and Colby were always teammates throughout their childhood, playing together in the Little League World Series in 1999, and winning a State Championship with Russell County High School in Seale, Ala., in 2005. With that kind of history, Colby Rasmus admits its strange having Cory on the other side of the diamond. But hes glad to see his younger brother getting his shot in the big leagues. "Id love nothing more than to have him do well," he said. "Through everything weve been through, all the work we put in when we were younger ... for us to both be on the same big league field and have a chance to do this, its very special." Niklas Sule Jersey . Rookie Christian Vazquez got his first three major league hits and drove in three runs, while David Ortiz had three RBIs to break open the game in the sixth inning and lead Boston over the Houston Astros 8-3. Arjen Robben Jersey . Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22 and the Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss. http://www.bayernmunichfcstore.com/authentic-tom-starke-bayern-munich-jersey/ . -- Conner Bleackley got it done in regulation time and in the shootout.ROME - Former figure skating world champion Carolina Kostner was banned for 16 months on Friday for her role in the doping case involving her ex-boyfriend and Olympic race walking gold medallist Alex Schwazer.Kostners lawyer has already said they will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Im certainly not happy, in fact Im very disheartened and very disappointed, Kostner said. Im determined to go right to the end, right to the last level of justice.The Italian Olympic Committees anti-doping prosecutor had originally recommended that Kostner be banned for four years and three months for helping Schwazer evade a test and other infractions.However, following a change in the World Anti-Doping Agencys code from the beginning of 2015, the prosecutor changed his recommendation at Fridays hearing, requesting a suspension of two years and three months. But the doping court decided on a sanction of one year and four months and a fine of 1,000 euros ($1,150).The ban starts immediately and ends May 15, 2016. It means Kostner, the 2014 Olympic bronze medallist and 2012 world champion, will be eligible for the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, Southh Korea. Robert Lewandowski Jersey. She will miss the European championships next January as well as the next worlds, which start March 28, 2016.The 27-year-old Kostner was taking a year off from competition.Kostners hearing was part of a widespread doping inquiry set off when Schwazer tested positive for EPO before the 2012 London Olympics.Schwazer, who won the 50-kilometre walk at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, failed an out-of-competition test before arriving in London and was removed from Italys team before competing. He admitted using the blood-boosting hormone EPO, and said he was quitting the sport.Kostner maintains that she did not know Schwazer doped. However, published reports of Kostners testimony to prosecutors in Bolzano showed she admitted to lying to WADA inspectors who came to her home in Germany looking for Schwazer on July 30, 2012 — days before Schwazer flew to London for the Olympics.Ultimately, the WADA inspectors caught up with Schwazer in Italy and thats when he tested positive.Schwazer has been banned for three and a half years, although he could have that extended by three months, taking his suspension to April 2016.
