(SportsNetwork. Cristian Zapata Colombia Jersey .com) - Drew Hutchison is coming off one of the best starts in his young career and will look to build on that when the Toronto Blue Jays battle the struggling Boston Red Sox in game two of their three game set at Fenway Park. Clay Buchholz will be on the mound for Boston who fell to Toronto 7-4 on Tuesday night. The Blue Jays have won six of eight while the Red Sox have dropped five in a row. Hutchison went the distance for his first shutout on Friday, defeating Texas, 2-0, while surrendering just three hits. Hes faced the Red Sox once, in Toronto, and won a 5-1 decision after pitching seven innings in June 2012. Buchholz was 12-1 in the turnaround 2013 season that yielded a World Series championship. Hes lost three of five decisions thus far in 2014 while posting an ugly 6.17 earned run average. In his last start, on Thursday at Minnesota, Buchholz gave up three runs in six innings in a game the Red Sox ultimately lost, 4-3, in 10 innings. He downed Toronto, 7-6, in April and is 10-5 in 18 career starts against the Blue Jays, though just two of those wins have come over seven starts in the series at Fenway Park. On Tuesday, Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Torontos four home runs, accounting for four RBI, as the Blue Jays took down Boston in the opener. Melky Cabrera ended up 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two runs batted in and three scored for the Jays. Erik Kratz also went deep for the visitors. J.A. Happ (3-1) allowed four runs on seven hits while fanning six and walking two over five-plus innings. Casey Janssen worked out of a jam in the ninth for his fourth save. Jonny Gomes finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer for the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia and Jackie Bradley each drove in a run, too. Felix Doubront (2-4) was tagged in the setback for five hits and as many runs while not surviving the fifth inning. Boston took two of three from the Jays earlier in the year. Boston dropped a 7-4 decision in Tuesdays opener for its fifth straight loss. It hasnt lost six consecutive games since the end of 2012, when it closed the season with eight straight defeats.

And though his comeback night didnt quite go to script, Bryant couldnt help reflecting on the work necessary to get back on that court -- and all the months of steady labour ahead to reclaim his game. Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in the trade-depleted Toronto Raptors 106-94 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Liriano pitched in and out of trouble in his duel with Josh Beckett, and Ike Davis homered to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 Friday night. http://www.soccercolombia.us/Jose-Fernan...ca-Jersey/ . -- The Anaheim Ducks have signed left wing Dany Heatley to a one-year deal, returning the 33-year-old unrestricted free agent to the Pacific Division.This week, I flew out to Saint John, New Brunswick to speak at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association mens soccer championships. There are eight teams from across the country contesting the nationals, with games taking place from Wednesday to Saturday. You can watch the action live by clicking this link. While I was in Saint John, I also had the chance to speak to coaches and volunteers from the Fundy Soccer Association. We often focus our attention on the top of the pyramid in Canadian soccer - professional teams in MLS or our mens and womens national teams. While many fans are keen to follow the stories at the highest level of the game, there are also some great stories to tell about the people who are the real lifeblood of the game in Canada - the volunteers who run grassroots clubs. The Fundy Soccer Association is a great example. Their organization is full of volunteer administrators, referees and coaches, all trying their hardest to give the kids in their community a great experience with the game of soccer. It isnt about developing professional or national team players for them (although doing so would be icing on the cake); it is about ensuring that every child that comes into their club falls in love with the game, has fun, and stays involved in soccer for the rest of their life. It is about teaching them life lessons through the game of soccer. They are implementing the principles of long-term player development (LTPD) at their club because they understand the reasoning and research behind it. It isnt always an easy sell - there are parents that reject small-sided games and age-appropriate competition because it "doesnt look like real soccer" - but they continue to preach the gospel of LTPD in the hopes that it will soon become the norm. What organizations like Fundy need more than anything, is support. There are two major areas where that support would make a major difference - the first being coach education. When a club is reliant upon volunteer coaches (the vast majority of non-profit grassroots clubs in Canada would not exist if not for volunteer coaches), attracting aand retaining coaches is paramount. Santiago Arias Jersey. . That is very difficult to do when the cost of training and certifying those coaches is taken into consideration. It is one thing to ask a parent or volunteer to give up their time for their club. It is quite another to then ask them to pay for the privilege. While many clubs across the country pick up the cost of coach education (which they offset through higher registration fees or hard-earned sponsorship money that needs to be generated year after year), many of them cannot. In those situations, the cost of coach education is passed on to the volunteer coach - making it even more difficult to attract and retain coaches. Ive said it before (and Im sure Ill be saying it again in the future) but our governing bodies need to find revenue sources that completely offset the cost of coach education. Making coach education free to volunteer coaches across the country removes a massive barrier to grassroots coach education, making it far easier for organizations like Fundy to develop coaches. The second area that requires support is curriculum. Volunteer coaches often find themselves rushing home from work, collecting their kids and dashing off to practice. They keep a bag of balls, their boots and assorted coaching equipment in their cars, because they are out on the field three or sometimes four nights a week. They simply dont have time to sit down on their computers after work to look for training ideas on the internet. Shouldnt it be easier than that? Shouldnt those volunteer coaches have a document that they can use, a blueprint for the development of young soccer players they can refer to when stretched for time? Of course they should. And thats where a national curriculum comes into play. That we dont have one is a problem that the CSA needs to rectify immediately. Work is being done on that right now, but until such time as we have our own national curriculum, volunteer coaches across the country will be left to fend for themselves. The Fundy Soccer Association and those like it that exist across the country deserve better than that.
