MONTREAL - When things were falling apart for the B.C. Lions in the CFL East Division semifinal, defensive back Jerald Brown made some Montreal Alouettes team history. Just after the Lions had something positive happen, a Tim Brown kickoff return to the Montreal 12-yard line, Brown scooped up a fumble and ran a team-record 103 yards for a touchdown to put the Alouettes at the half-century mark in what would be a 50-17 victory. That, and the stellar play of a Montreal defence that held B.C. to 102 passing yards, earned Brown CFL defensive player of the week honours on Tuesday. Hell try to keep up the strong defensive play when the Alouettes face the Tiger-Cats in Hamilton in the East final on Sunday. Thats cool, but its about our team, said Brown. I accept it and I appreciate it, but its just another week for me. Weve got to go out and win. Thats all were focused on. Its not about individuality. Weve got to get it done as a team. The Alouettes are looking to stay on the roll that saw them rebound from a 1-7 start to the season to finish 9-9, good for second place in the East. Then they beat the 9-9 Lions to get a shot at still another 9-9 club in Hamilton. The Alouettes and Ticats met in the regular season finale for both clubs on Nov. 8, with Hamilton getting the 29-15 win and first place based on points differential between the teams this season. Now they are set to meet again, with rainy but relatively warm 8 C weather in the forecast. The Alouettes have not won an away game against Hamilton in four years. In their last meeting, played in wind, snow and cold, the Ticats dominated while ending the fumble-prone Alouettess six-game winning streak. It left the Ticats unbeaten in six games at the new Tim Hortons Field. This is a new ballgame, said Brown. You win and you move on and you lose you go home. Anything prior to this game is irrelevant. The Alouettes will be boosted by their best offensive display of the season against B.C. They scored six offensive touchdowns, including a pair of TD passes by Jonathan Crompton, the awkward but effective pivot who took over as a starter just when the team turned its season around. Brown said it was a matter of time before the Alouettes put together a top effort from the offence, defence and special teams at once. Ive been saying all year that once we get going on all phases, its going to be a problem (for opponents), said Brown. Its nothing were overly excited about because we have another game to play this week. We knew what we were capable of and we went out and did it. If you look at our roster, we have all the pieces in place. Coach Tom Higgins said having played a game in Hamiltons windy new park will help on their visit. We learned a lot about how to handle the wind and I think were looking forward to getting back there, he said. My biggest challenge is make sure the guys arent too excited. A lot of lessons were learned and its still fresh in their minds why we didnt win that game. A question about the importance of the coin toss had Higgins smiling. Winning it could be key because it would determine who plays with the wind at their backs in the fourth quarter. As the visitor, we get to call heads or tails, he said. We will call tails. Thats what weve called all year. We made that determination before the start of the season and weve won more often than not. I know were above 50 (per cent) mark with tails. Higgins will have a decision to make at running back. It appears that Tyrell Sutton, who missed the semifinal with an ankle injury, will be back when practices resume on Wednesday. Brandon Rutley ran for 95 yards on 15 carries in his absence. We came through the game relatively healthy, said Higgins. I think everyone who played in the game will be able to practice. Defensive end John Bowman left the game with a rib problem, but Higgins said hell still be sore, but I dont imagine hell miss one snap of practice. Centre Luc Brodeur-Jourdain was wearing a sheepish expression and a University of Montreal Carabins T-shirt. The Laval U grad lost a bet when the Carabins beat the Rouge et Or in the Quebec Conference championship on Saturday. Jack Youngblood Jersey . Sterling was banned for life and fined US$2.5 million by the NBA on Tuesday for racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation. Nash, who plays for the rival L.A. Lakers, spoke as a representative of current NBA players at a press conference assembled by Sacramento mayor and National Basketball Players Association adviser Kevin Johnson. Jared Goff Jersey . Players suspended during the season for a performance-enhancing drug violation will not be eligible for that years post-season. In addition, discipline will increase from 50 games to 80 for a first testing violation and from 100 games to a season-long 162 for a second. A third violation remains a lifetime ban. http://www.officiallosangelesramsfootbal...l-jersey-womens. PAUL, Minn. Michael Brockers Jersey . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. John Sullivan Jersey . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate).CINCINNATI – Theres a lot to say about what happened at Great American Ballpark on Friday night but Erik Kratz needed only three words to aptly describe a 14-9 Blue Jays win over the Reds. "It was awesome," he said. Coming off an ugly three-game sweep at the hands of the Yankees, Toronto found itself in a deep hole early after the Reds put an eight spot up on starter Liam Hendriks (six runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched) and Todd Redmond in the second. All seemed lost, but then the offence, relatively dormant in a stretch of nine losses in 12 games, came to life. As it is with these Blue Jays, as it seems it must be, home runs played a significant role in the comeback. Edwin Encarnacion hit two. The first was the most important. Encarnacion took Mat Latos deep for a three-run shot in the third, a comparatively meek answer to Cincinnatis eight runs the half-inning prior, but the Jays were on the board nonetheless. Brett Lawrie hit a one out homer in the seventh to cut the deficit to 9-6. Three batters later, pinch hitter Juan Francisco hit a two-run shot off journeyman Reds reliever Jumbo Diaz. The score was 9-8, officially nail-biting time for the 33,103 predomiantly Reds fans in attendance. Encarnacion sealed the deal with another three-run home run in the ninth. By that time the Jays were ahead and the second deck shot extended the lead to 14-9. Suddenly, Encarnacion is baseballs leader with 23 home runs. He has three in two games, a sign hes coming out of his slump. "I think we got the emotion back," said Encarnacion. "Everybody in the dugout felt very happy. We felt we could come back." Starting catcher, Dioner Navarro, hit a two out, game-tying double off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth. His replacement in a double switch, Erik Kratz, hit the go-ahead double off flamethrower Aroldis Chapman in the ninth. That Jays put up runs on Cincinnatis formidable one-two bullpen punch (Broxton had a 0.40 ERA entering the game, Chapman a 0.98 ERA) was a feat in itself. "His ball, it comes out of a different slot, too," said Kratz of Chapman, who consistently throws a fastball harder than 100 miles per hour. "Hes coiled up and he comes at you with the noise and thats why hes had so much success." Adam Lind contributed a pinch hit RBI single. Jose Bautista walked four times. Brett Lawrie, who missed Thursdays game in New York with a bruised hand, returned and had three hits. Lawrie was one of six Blue Jays who registered a multi-hit performance. "Yeah, wed lost three in a row," said Kratz. "Yeah, we had lost three in a row but I dont think anybody was sitting here, like, Uh, are we going to win another game? Just like when we had won nine in a row but nobody ever said we had to win 20 in a row. We tried to win our 10th in a row and I think thats something the team does incredibly well. You saw tonight, grinding ouut each at-bat.ddddddddddddEach at-bat that we grind out is just the way were going to play the game. We cant beat anybody tomorrow but we can beat them today." Manager John Gibbons wasnt aware of the specific details but hes been around long enough to know these types of comebacks are historic. "I may never see another game like that, you may never see another game like that so enjoy it and hope it leads to better things," said Gibbons. The eight-run comeback marked the second largest deficit the Blue Jays have overcome in the franchises 38-year history. Long-time fans, certainly those old enough to remember, will recall June 4, 1989 with fondness. The Jays trailed the Red Sox 10-0 at Fenway Park and rallied for a 13-11 win in 12 innings. VOTTO TALKS ENCARNACION Toronto-born Joey Votto is taking it in from a distance. Hes enjoying the success his former teammate and good buddy, Edwin Encarnacion, is enjoying in Vottos hometown. "Hes a teammate that I really am very fond of and Im very proud of him, how well hes done," said Votto. "There are some guys you tune into and you almost, I dont want to use the word awe but you watch and you think to yourself, what do I have to do to get my swing to that point? That May stretch certainly was like that and he and Bautista are two really fun guys to watch." Encarnacions 23 home runs lead Baltimores Nelson Cruz (22). His 62 RBIs also lead the Majors. So enamored was Votto with Encarnacions 16-home run month of May, he sent Encarnacion a text on the afternoon of May 29. Votto admitted the message was profanity-laced and jokingly disparaging. He called upon Encarnacion to hit two home runs in the Jays game against the Royals that night. Encarnacion did just that. "He didnt answer me back until the second home run in the seventh inning," said Votto. "He responded back that night and I asked for some hitting tips. He was kind of coy about it." Encarnacion and Votto were teammates in Cincinnati from the time Votto broke in to the big leagues, in 2007, until Encarnacion was traded to the Blue Jays in 2009. BAUTISTA AND TWITTER Jose Bautista is amongst the major leaguers most active on social media. He has accounts on Twitter and Instagram (@joeybats19) and maintains Facebook and Youtube pages. "Its part of being an athlete today," said Bautista. "If youre not taking advantage of social media and using it to interact with your fans and giving them a sneak peak into your personal life and how you prepare and what youre about then shame on you." If you give Bautista a Twitter follow, chances are hell follow you back. Bautista is closing in on 514-thousand followers. He follows almost 230-thousand accounts. "Im glad Ive been able to use it in the right way I believe," said Bautista. "Just connecting with the fans and giving them the access that theyve wanted for so long."
