TORONTO -- Its been a bad three-game stretch for the Blue Jays and the numbers tell a bleak story: three straight home losses, 29 runs given up on 42 hits and 13 walks. Brock McGinn Jersey . Toronto (11-12) gave up leads in 10-8 and 11-4 losses to the Baltimore Orioles this week. It was never close Friday as the Boston Red Sox got to Mark Buehrle early en route to an 8-1 win. "Tomorrow comes quickly and early," Jays manager John Gibbons said hopefully, "So we need to get back out and play some good baseball." Its sorely needed. Torontos pitching staff has a combined earned-run average of 4.70 with 99 walks. And the Jays are hitting .247. Boston slugger David Ortiz hit his 50th career homer against the Jays and right-hander Jake Peavey scattered five hits over seven innings in a tidy outing to earn his first win after four non-decisions. A unanimous NL Cy Young Award-winner in 2007, Peavey struck out seven and walked two. The lone blemish on the Peavey scoresheet was a Juan Francisco home run -- his first as a Blue Jay -- in the seventh inning. The six-foot-two 245-pound designated hitter muscled a moonshot that landed in the right-field boxes just under the 500 level. Buehrle (4-1) was trying to become first Blue Jays starter to win his first five starts of the campaign. Instead he wobbled early as the Red Sox (11-13) recorded their 300th career victory against Toronto before an announced crowd of 29,411. The 35-year-old left-hander came into the game with a 4-0 record and MLB-leading 0.64 ERA. Buehrle had allowed two runs in 28 innings, striking out 19 and walking only five batters. The opposition was batting .210 against him. On Friday, he gave up seven runs on 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings, throwing 101 pitches that included 64 strikes. Buehrle walked three, had no strikeouts and saw his ERA increase to 2.16. "Hes been so good. Thats baseball, youre not going to be perfect every time out there," Gibbons said. "Hell bounce back. He was just off tonight, its that simple." Buehrle pointed to his walks and some bloop hits that found holes and eluded defenders. "Youve got to have the luck on your side. I wasnt hitting my spots as good as I was in the past. And when I did they got some base hits. But overall, too many strikes in the middle of the zone and they took advantage of it." Boston outhit Toronto 16-6 with all nine Red Sox starters registering hits on the night. The roof was closed on a wet, windy evening in Toronto. But down the street, Raptors fans braved the elements at Maple Leaf Square to watch Game 3 of Torontos NBA playoff series against the Nets in Brooklyn on the big screen outside the Air Canada Centre. That ending was closer but no more satisfying to locals. A leadoff walk and four hits in the second inning put the Jays behind 4-0 as Boston sent seven men to the plate and Buehrle threw 30 pitches. An A.J. Pierzynski sacrifice fly, Will Middlebrooks single and Dustin Pedroias two-RBI single kept the Boston scoreboard ticking. The inning snapped Buehrles streak of 0-23 with runners in scoring position. An Ortiz home run to deep right field made it 5-0 in the third. It was Ortizs fifth homer of the season and the 436th of his career, moving him within two of tying Andre Dawson and Jason Giambi for 40th place on the MLB all-time list. The Ortiz blast was also his 33rd at the Rogers Centre. Only Alex Rodriguez (36) has hit more in a visitors uniform here. Torontos Jose Bautista doubled in the fourth and has now reached base safely in all 23 games this season. The feel-good story ended quickly when he was caught stealing third, with one out and Edwin Encarnacion on first. Dioner Navarro then popped up to end the threat. "Ive got no idea," Gibbons said when asked what Bautista was thinking. "Its not smart winning baseball. Im sure he wont do it again." Said Peavey: "That was a shot in the arm for us." Middlebrooks, returning to the Boston lineup from a strained right calf injury that had sidelined him since April 4, doubled home Pierzynski in the sixth to make it 6-0. Buehrle exited one hitter later after walking the No. 9 hitter, Jackie Bradley Jr. Neil Wagner followed Buehrle and soon had to deal with the bases loaded, with two out, after a Jose Reyes error and Ortiz walk. Wagner walked Mike Napoli to make it 7-0, after the Boston first baseman had fouled off a string of balls with the count full, before striking out Jonny Gomes. The Jays had men on first and third with two out in the sixth but Peavey struck out Bautista and Encarnacion to snuff out Torontos first threat of the night. Boston manager John Farrell called it a key moment. "Jake gets two big strikeouts to end their threat, to keep the momentum on our side." The hard-throwing Wagner, who complicated matters with two walks and one hit batsman in 1 1/3 innings, was followed by Todd Redmond. The Jays sent Wagner to Triple-A Buffalo after the game, calling up pitcher Chad Jenkins. Bradley, who had three extra base hits on the night, made it 8-1 with a two-out RBI double off Redmond in the ninth. Chris Capuano pitched the eighth for Boston, striking out the side. Andrew Miller worked the ninth, giving up a single while striking out two. Justin Faulk Jersey .com) - St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko, Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk and Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury have been selected as the NHLs top players for last week. Jordan Staal Jersey . Rob Klinkhammer and Mikkel Boedker scored 63 seconds apart in the first period for the Coyotes, who handed the Kings their third straight loss and took over sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference. Mike Smith made 36 saves. http://www.officialhurricanesfanstore.com/ . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U.SEATTLE - After watching their team win with a series of improbable moves in the NFC championship game, Seahawks fans are hoping a similar kind of luck will get them Super Bowl tickets.Kevin Rempel-Cheuk is going to Arizona because he has a childhood friend who wanted to take the whole gang to the game.A few other fans will be lucky enough to win a trip from the Washington State Lottery or the online store of Seahawks star Richard Sherman. Meanwhile, Season ticket owners were put in a lottery for a chance to buy tickets for $950, including service charges.For the rest, tickets are available at the moment from a number of online sites for $2,500. Other packages are available from a NFL affiliate site starting at $5,000 and from an online retailer for $8,000 and up.Rempel-Cheuk and his wife Erin are huge Seahawks fans and named their 18-month-old daughter Bennett, though Erin Rempel-Cheuk says thats just a coincidence and had nothing to do with the fact that they met defensive end Michael Bennett while she was pregnant, and he is her favourite Seahawk.Erin and Bennett wont be travelling to Glendale, Arizona, with Kevin, but they will be watching the game with some of their friends.Im thinking about having a Super Bowl toddler party, she said.Paula Gardner of Maltby, Washington, who hasnt seen the Seahawks in person for years, will be cheering from her couch.I used to go when the games were affordable, she said, dismissing the idea of paying $2,500 to see the Super Bowl in person.I laugh at people who will pay that for the tickets to a sporting event thats not the Olympics, Gardner said. Even so, she didnt go to the 2010 Winter Olympics in nearby Vancouver. British Columbia.Im a cheap woman, the suburban mother of three admits.But she does loove her Seahawks, especially quarterback Russell Wilson. Calvin De Haan Jersey. Im old enough to be his mother. I just think hes cute, Gardner said.Wilson said hes been asked more than a hundred times for free tickets to the game. Since he only has about 15 to share, fans might want to try another approach.Sherman is giving away a pair of tickets and a trip to the game. He says thousands of people have entered his Super Bowl contest.Because everybody thinks they deserve it. Then some people call me an idiot for not selling it to them, the Seahawks cornerback said.He is expecting the team to have more fans at the game than it had last year at the Super Bowl in New Jersey.Its a two-hour flight (to Phoenix) versus a 5 1/2 or whatever it is to New York. So I think well have a lot more support, Sherman said. A lot of people who didnt get to go last year are chomping at the bit to go this year.Malcolm Smith, the MVP of last years game, also is looking forward to more Seahawks fans in Arizona.Weve done pretty well in Arizona before as far as fans travelling and making some noise, Smith said. Hopefully theyre not hording the tickets for Patriots fans.Season ticket holder Mary Reeder is excited to be going to her second Seahawks Super Bowl in a row, especially since she believes this years team is better than last years.Im a huge Seahawks fan, Reeder said. I went to the opening of the Kingdome and the first Seahawks game with my grandmother.Her advice for fans who want to go to the game: Dont buy a package, stay in a cheap motel, plan ahead for public transportation to and from the game, eat before you enter the stadium and take advantage of the free activities before and after the game.____AP Sports Writer Tim Booth contributed to this story.
