a double to Fielder, who came around to score on sin

TORONTO - When the Blue Jays and Braves meet for four games next week, two in Toronto and two in Dixie, fans in a small Alabama town will be tuned intently to their television sets. Ducks Jerseys Outlet . Anyone with the Rasmus last name in Phenix City will be celebrating moments a lifetime in the making. Brothers Colby and Cory, the Blue Jays centerfielder and the pitcher recently recalled by the Braves, will be in opposite big league dugouts for the first time. Colby found out about Corys promotion before Saturdays game in New York. "It was great to hear that," Rasmus told "Hes been pitching well this year. Hes had a little bit of a tough road battling some injuries and some shoulder surgeries and things like that. Man, (Saturday) I was about ready to jump out of my skin. I didnt know what to do with myself. It was just a great day." The two have always been close – about 15 months apart in age. Colby is 26, Cory is 25. There are four Rasmus boys and the brotherly competition began informally at a young age. "Weve put in a lot of time," said Rasmus. "From the time we could walk, we were playing baseball out in the yard." Eventually a conversation happened between father, Tony, and the two boys that set the course for their professional careers and the face-to-face which could happen next week. "At 10 years old, my dad sat us both down and asked us if we wanted to make it to the big leagues and he was going to push us in every way he knew how," said Rasmus. "It paid off." Both were first round draft picks, Colby in 2005 to the Cardinals and Cory a year later to the Braves. Another brother, Casey, 23, plays A ball in St. Louis system. While Colby made his major league debut on April 7, 2009 with St. Louis and hasnt returned to the minors, Corys road has been injury-plagued and far less certain. A flamethrower whose fastball consistently read in the mid-to-high 90s – and occasionally touch 100 mph – he was beset by shoulder tendinitis in 2006, his first pro season, and was shut down after only three appearances with the Gulf Coast League Braves. Cory missed all of 2007 and most of 2008. He had more injury trouble in 2011 but bounced back in 2012 with a 3.68 ERA in 50 appearances for Atlantas Double-A affiliate in Mississippi. So far this season, Cory Rasmus has seven saves and a 0.93 ERA in 19 outings for Triple-A Gwinnett of the International League. Colby Rasmus is still working on the details of next weeks series. Hes still not sure who will make the trek north for the Toronto portion of the Blue Jays-Braves series. There will be dozens of family and friends come Wednesday in Atlanta, about a 90-minute drive from Phenix City. Itll be a sweet payoff for the Rasmus brothers and their parents, both schoolteachers, who sacrificed a significant portion of their annual income to allow their kids to chase the baseball dream. "We just worked our butts off pretty much," said Colby. "Countless hours in the gym working out. We spent more than enough time on the baseball field practicing, playing, traveling. My parents spent all their money that they had pretty much on traveling to go here and there and for Christmas, we didnt hardly get any presents or anything because they were putting all that money toward helping us with baseball." Romeros struggles continue Ricky Romero made his third start for Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday. He allowed one run and walked only two through the first five innings but it was in the sixth that Romeros outing fell apart. He walked four straight Charlotte Knights hitters before being taken out of the game. Romeros final line: 5IP (plus four batters in the sixth,) four earned runs on four hits, six walks and two strikeouts. Johnson making progress Right-hander Josh Johnson, rehabbing from triceps inflammation, reported good health after Monday nights start for Single-A Dunedin. Of the nine outs Johnson recorded, five were strikeouts. Hes scheduled to pitch again on Saturday and manager John Gibbons says he expects Johnson will make a third rehab appearance, in the middle of next week, before thought is given to bringing him back to the Blue Jays. Nick Ritchie Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Brandon Montour Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap.BALTIMORE -- Kevin Gausman did his part, holding the Detroit Tigers in check for six innings while baffling reigning AL MVP Miguel Cabrera. Still, the Orioles rookie was in position to absorb his third straight loss -- until Chris Davis and Baltimore finally got the best of tiring Rick Porcello in a 4-2 victory Sunday. Davis hit his major league-leading 20th homer to ignite a three-run seventh inning for the Orioles, who took two of three from Detroit. Baltimore also rallied on Friday against the defending American League champs after trailing by two runs in the ninth. "Its obviously huge to win the series at home, especially against those guys with that pitching staff and that lineup," said Davis, who had two hits and scored twice. Making his third major league start, Gausman displayed the form that made him the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft. The right-hander went six innings, allowing one run and five hits, striking out four and walking none over six innings in his first game at Camden Yards. "I felt comfortable today," Gausman said. "I thought today was the most polished and most calm since Ive been up here. Obviously, it was fun and I made my debut here today so that was something Ill never forget." Gausman came in with an 11.00 ERA after yielding seven runs in four innings at Washington on Tuesday. The 22-year-old retired the last six batters he faced, ending the outing by slipping a third strike past Cabrera -- who also hit into two double plays. "Hes the best hitter in the game. I just tried to make my pitches and keep everything down," Gausman said. "If you dont have a good inning against him, he can make you pay for it. It was a good battle. It was fun." Brian Matusz (2-0) got the win despite giving up a run in the seventh, Darren ODay worked the eighth and Jim Johnson got three outs for his 18th save. Prince Fielder homered and scored both runs for the Tigers, who have lost five of six. Porcello (2-3) lost for the first time in seven starts since April 20. Porcello was working on a three-hitter and took a 2-0 lead into the seventh before things unraveled. After Davis homered, Chris Dickerson singled and took third on a single by J.J. Hardy. Phil Coke entered and gave up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Danny Valencia. Discount Ducks Jerseys. Two batters later, Nate McLouth grounded a broken-bat single up the middle to bring home pinch-runner Alexi Casilla for a 3-2 lead. "He (Porcello) was kind of running out of gas and that was obviously a good chance for us to get into the bullpen," Davis said. "He had pretty much been dominating us the whole game. ... He threw me a hanging changeup and I hit it out and we started rolling after that." If he could do it over again, Tigers manager Jim Leyland would have gone to his bullpen to start the seventh. "I botched it, it was my fault," he said. "(Porcello) was pitching terrific, but the way the lineup set up, I should have made the move in the seventh. I didnt make it and it cost us." It was all going so well for the Tigers -- until then. "One swing of the bat can turn the momentum in a hurry," Detroits Torii Hunter said. "The momentum carried after his home run and they ran with it." Doubles by Davis and Casilla against Darren Downs in the eighth made it 4-2. After Gausman left, Matusz came in to start the seventh and promptly gave up a double to Fielder, who came around to score on singles by Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta. Early on, Porcello and Gausman locked in an engaging pitchers duel. Gausman had just gotten Cabrera to hit into a second double play in the fourth inning when Fielder drove a 3-0 pitch into the right-field seats. Peralta led off the Detroit fifth with a single, took second on a wild pitch and reached third on a groundout. With the infield in, Gausman retired Ramon Santiago on a bouncer to first base before Avisail Garcia grounded out. NOTES: Baltimore turned a season-high four double plays. ... Baltimores Adam Jones went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts. ... The Tigers acquired 3B Francisco Martinez from Seattle for player to be named or cash. ... Baltimore and Detroit both have Monday off. The Orioles resume play in Houston on Tuesday, and the Tigers host Tampa Bay. ... Baltimore pinch-hitters were 1 for 18 before Valencia delivered in the seventh. Valencias only other hit as a pinch-hitter came in 2010. ... It was the eighth time Detroit has lost when leading after six innings.
