PHOENIX - Jeremy Jeffress faced two batters in the 10th inning of Wednesdays 4-3 Blue Jays loss to the Diamondbacks. Cheap Air Max 90 China . Both hitters singled. The second hit, off the bat of pesky shortstop Willie Bloomquist, scored Adam Eaton and gave Arizona the series sweep-avoiding win in walk-off fashion. Not a pleasant return to the majors for Jeffress in his first appearance in almost five months, but occasionally in defeat, there is victory. Jeffress story, this 2013 season, is one of overcoming. First, a little background. There have been problems since his draft year of 2006 when he went 16th overall to the Milwaukee Brewers. There was the positive test for a "drug of abuse", marijuana. He got a warning. In 2007, he tested positive again and sat for 50 games. Two years later, he tested positive again and sat for 100 games. If theres a next time, a fourth time, Jeffress will be banned from baseball for life. "Stoner," they yell. "Addict," they scream. You name the catcall, hes heard it. Jeffress ignores them, which has become easier to do because now he understands why he would get high. The marijuana helped him to cope with juvenile epilepsy, a condition thats affected him for years but was only recently diagnosed by doctors at the Women and Childrens Hospital in Buffalo. "To get that taken care of, I know baseball is my life, but being healthy and being away from my family for this long, that was just the biggest key," Jeffress told TSN.ca. "At first, when I got into the hospital, it messed with me a little bit. Its like, I just want to be on the field. Whenever Im on the field, I dont think about the seizure stuff but now that I understand, that was a big key to my life." The "seizure stuff" Jeffress is referring to is only one of the symptoms of juvenile epilepsy. Theres also twitching, especially prevalent at the start and the end of the day. Theres anxiety. Its a cruel mixture, especially when it persists for years without proper diagnosis. Jeffress spent about five weeks on the disabled list. He was prescribed medication, which he now swears by, that has alleviated the twitching and calmed him down. He hasnt had a seizure in more than two months. Now, Jeffress just wants to focus on mastering his craft. Hes coming along in that regard. Like Neil Wagner, Jeffress is a flame-thrower. Every now and then, the radar gun hits triple digits when hes on the mound. He saved some games for the Bisons when Wagner was called up. However, also like Wagner, Jeffress struggled for years to command his lively fastball. Hes made an adjustment, under the tutelage of Bisons pitching coach Bob Stanley, dropping his arm slot. Despite averaging 4.3 walks per nine innings in 25 appearances for Buffalo, Jeffress believes hes on the right track. "Everybodys always told me I dont have to over-amplify and overdo myself just to get the ball past people," said Jeffress, who turns 26 on September 21. "Putting it in certain spots and working down in the zone, thats tough to hit already. Me thinking, before, that I had to blow it by everybody with 98 to 99 and just try to do it that way, it wont work. You have to be not too fine but just in the zone more consistently." Its hard to say what opportunities will arise over the final three and a half weeks. Jeffress will be called upon in certain high-leverage situations, like he was on Wednesday, and hell have the chance to show what he can do. In his third organization, there was a stop in Kansas City after Milwaukee, Jeffress knows a strong showing will plant a seed with general manager Alex Anthopoulos. The organization loves his arm. "I really just want to show them that Im very capable for them to trust in me," said Jeffress. "Thats what I want them to do is basically trust me. If were in a close game or whatever and we need a couple of outs, I want them to have my name in their heads, for sure. Just get them to see that I can do the job."

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- So much quarterback drama with the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is tossing the football around again at practice. But dont expect to see Rodgers to be healed enough from his fractured left collarbone to play Thursday when Green Bay visits Detroit in a critical NFC North game. "This was a big day actually for him as far as doing throwing and doing some of the things ... the training staff wanted to hit with him. They definitely hit it," coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday after practice. "So, he feels good but I dont think hes going to make it this week." Tuesday marked Rodgers return to practice since the Nov. 4 injury as anything more than an unofficial assistant quarterback coach. He was formally declared "limited" on the injury report. Asked for more clarity after having pronounced Rodgers chances as "slim to none" earlier this week, McCarthy told reporters: "Closer to none. Im trying to help you out, the drama ... that you guys need. So, there it is, all right." So then the starter is ... Matt Flynn. Probably. Flynn took starter reps Tuesday, two days after helping to lead the Packers back from a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the Vikings 26-26 in overtime. "Thats where we are. Business as usual," McCarthy said. "Getting him ready. Getting ready to go." Flynn hadnt actually been told as of early Tuesday afternoon that hell be the starter. He said he didnt know when that decision will be made, though it seems like its headed in that direction. "But Im preparing like Im going to start. My mind is set to go out there and take the first snap and play, and do the best that I can, and try to move the ball," said Flynn, a one-time Packers backup who was re-signed two weeks ago. The Packers problems at quarterback started when Rodgers went down during the first series of the 27-20 loss to Chicago on Nov. 4. Green Bay, 5-2 at the time, has been winless since then. Seneca ;Wallace replaced Rodgers, then started against the Eagles and played one series before leaving with a groin injury. Yeezy Boost China Wholesale. Hes now on injured reserve. Scott Tolzien replaced Wallace, and started the previous two weeks, but was relieved by Flynn on Sunday for ineffectiveness. Flynn threw for 218 yards and a touchdown. Working in his favour is that hes familiar with the Packers system after having been drafted by the team in 2008 and serving as Rodgers backup for four seasons before leaving as a free agent in 2012. "I think were so much further ahead than we were last week," McCarthy said. "Just as far as going into this game, I feel a lot better that both our quarterbacks will be better prepared." With Flynn, the Packers moved the ball against the Vikings going without a huddle, a staple under Rodgers but something that McCarthy has said the team wasnt really as prepared to do on Sunday. "You get the no-huddle out there, you kind of press their conditioning a little bit," centre Evan Dietrich-Smith said. "It really starts stressing out their guys that are on the field for that time because maybe theyre not as used to it." The equalizing factor, though, might be the Packers having to recover from playing an overtime game. Practice schedules have been juggled a little this week to help the players. Besides Rodgers, the Packers are starting to get other key players back like cornerback Sam Shields (hamstring) and Johnny Jolly (groin), who were both full participants Tuesday after missing the Vikings game. Right tackle Don Barclay (knee) also returned on a limited basis Tuesday. What was new with Rodgers, though, was the primary topic of conversation. How did he look? How did he throw? Will he play? "Youre talking to the wrong person. I would be surprised, I guess," receiver Jordy Nelson said with a smile. "Theres nothing wrong with being surprised, though. Anyway, next question." ' ' '
ST. Air Jordan 1 Satin Black Toe Black Womens . LOUIS -- Casey McGehee didnt have to wait long to get another shot against Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal with a game on the line. Just a few hours. The Miami Marlins cleanup hitter grounded into a game-ending double play in a one-run loss Friday night. He wasnt thinking about instant redemption before getting the key two-out hit in a ninth-inning rally of a 6-5 victory on Saturday. "A lot of times you dont ever get it," McGehee said. "Youve got to be OK with the fact that those guys, theyre going to get you some times -- more times than not. "You cant go up there with that in your mind, but when you are able to get a hit like that it definitely feels good." Rosenthal called it a "tough at-bat against a good hitter, and he won the battle." McGehee fouled off five full-count pitches before lining a long game-tying single. He took second on the throw home, then beat the relay to the plate on pinch hitter Jeff Bakers go-ahead hit off Sam Freeman. "I was going, I had to take a chance right there," McGehee said. "Im not blessed with the greatest speed in the world. I was just trying to get there as quick as I could." Donovan Solano was running from first on McGehees hit and just beat a relay that catcher Yadier Molina couldnt quite handle. The Marlins also scored two runs off Rosenthal in the series opener but fell short in a 3-2 loss. Christian Yelichs three-run homer off Seth Maness in the sixth began Miamis comeback from a four-run deficit that snapped the Cardinals three-game winning streak. "You always feel bad letting down the team, but its part of the game," Rosenthal said. "No ones perfect. So Ill go out there again and try to do my best." Mike Dunn (6-4) worked a scoreless eighth and Steve Cishek finished for his 19th save in 21 chances. Allen Craig and Jhonny Peralta homered on consecutive at-bats against Andrew Heaney in a four-run fourth inning that put the Cardinals up 5-1. Rosenthal has four blown saves in 30 chances. The Cardinals entered with 49 homers, tied with the cross-state Royals for fewest in the majors, and hit back-to-back homers for the first time this season. Craigs two-run shot was his first since May 29 and came after two days on the bench, and two pitches later Peralta hit his team-leading 13th just inside the foul pole in left. Shelby Miller needed 107 pitches to work 5 1-3 innings and was charged with three runs on nine hits. Miller saved a run that kept it tied at 1 in the fourth, bare-handing Heaneys two-out safety squeeze bunt and diving as he flipped the ball to the plate in time to tag Marcell Ozuna. Crew chief Tim Welke denied the Marlins appeals that Ozuna had been safe and that there had been obstruction at plate. Heaney gave up five runs on eight hits in 3 2-3 innings, the worst of his four career starts. He faced 23 hitters and 12 reached safely. The Marlins nicked Miller for a run on three singles in the first with McGehee getting the RBI and extending his hitting streak to 12 games, a career best. The Cardinals tied it on a hit batter, walk and Molinas single in the bottom half. St. Louis stranded two in the first when Jon Jay took a called third strike and Allen Craig, making his first start in three games, grounded out with the bases loaded to end the second. After the game the Marlins activated shortstop Adeiny Hechavvia (triceps strain) from the 15-day disabled list after the game and manager Mike Redmond anticipated hed play in the series finale Sunday. Heaney and outfielder Jake Marisnick were optioned to Triple-A New Orleans and Tom Koehler was activated from paternity leave ahead of Mondays scheduled start at Arizona. The Marlins had discussed skipping Heaneys next turn and Redmond noted the lefty was at Class A last year. "We want to make sure hes confident and right," Redmond said.
