TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays are among the remaining major league clubs that can still say team goals are the priority and really mean it. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Sam-Acho-Jersey/ .It is different for the Los Angeles Angels, who are last in the American League West despite an 8-2 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night.They have split the first two games of a three-game series with the rubber game on Thursday at Rogers Centre.Toronto could get a boost with Jose Bautista back in the lineup and batting leadoff. Bautista was activated from the disabled list Thursday, and will be monitored closely in his first game since Aug. 9. Bautista, who also missed almost six weeks with a previous DL stint this summer, twisted his left knee while attempting to make a throw from right field.The Blue Jays remained tied for the American League East lead because the Boston Red Sox also lost, 4-3 in 11 innings to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.So when starter Marco Estrada was asked about his state of mind after having his second straight poor outing, he could say: Were still in first, I mean were up there, so as long as we keep winning games, Im going to be just as happy as everybody else is.Obviously, its not something I want to keep doing. My last two outings havent gone well. Things happen.Despite allowing six runs in five innings on Wednesday, Estrada knows he is pitching for a team that has a chance to repeat as AL East champions.In the Angels clubhouse, the emphasis was on an individual achievement, more than a team goal.Albert Pujols hit his 24th homer of the season and the 584th of his career in the first inning after Mike Trout hit his 24th homer of the season.Pujols moved past Mark McGwire into 10th place on the career home run list. He is two homers from tying Frank Robinson for ninth. A few dingers Thursday would do that. His next RBI will give him 100 for the season for the 13th time in his career. Chances are better that he does that Thursday.Pujols did not talk to the media after the game, but others did.Thats pretty special, Trout said. Obviously, he and McGwire were teammates, they know each other well. Its pretty special for him.Hes done it his whole career. He hasnt shown any signs of slowing down. Hes still putting up numbers, still driving in 100. Its fun to watch, for sure.Were happy for him and hopefully he keeps doing that, said Matt Shoemaker, the winning pitcher. Albert will probably pass a few more of those guys, hopefully all of them.The Blue Jays have left-hander J.A. Happ (17-3, 3.05 ERA) going Thursday and the Angels will start right-hander Jered Weaver (8-11, 5.47).Happ is going for his 12th straight win in his past 13 starts, but he is 0-4 with an 8.00 ERA in four career starts against the Angels.On the other hand, Weaver, who has struggled this season, has had success in his career against the Blue Jays.In 13 career starts against them, he is 10-2 with a 3.42 ERA. In four starts against Toronto since 2013, he is 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA. He is 4-1 with a 4.22 ERA in five career starts at Rogers Centre.The Blue Jays said they were not taking the Angels lightly in this series. The results on Wednesday showed why they cant afford to do so.I choose to be optimistic and look forward, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. It was one of those games where they outplayed us in every phase. Its not the first one, it wont be the last. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Bobby-Massie-Jersey/ . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Mitch-Unrein-Jersey/ . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Quintin-Demps-Jersey/ . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks have assigned defensemen Shea Theodore and Brandon Montour to their AHL affiliate in San Diego.The Ducks also released veteran left wing Sean Bergenheim from his professional tryout contract Thursday.Theodore played 19 regular-season games and six postseason games last season for the Ducks, while Montour was an AHL All-Star.The Ducks sent them back to the minors and kept promising 19-year-old Swedish defenseman Jacob Larsson, who made his North American debut last spring with one game for San Diego. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Kyle-Long-Jersey/. Bergenheim is an NHL veteran attempting to return to the league after spending last season with SC Bern in Switzerland.Anaheim also assigned centers Kalle Kossila and Kyle MacKinnon to San Diego. The Ducks roster has been reduced to 28 players, including four goalies.
