TORONTO - J. [url=]Cheap Heat Jerseys China[/url] .A. Happ pitched seven innings, Danny Valencia drove in three runs with a triple and Jose Bautista, Kevin Pillar and Anthony Gose homered as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Seattle Mariners 14-4 on Monday. Happ (10-11) became the fifth Blue Jays starter to reach double numbers in wins this season as the left-hander allowed eight hits, including a home run by Kyle Seager, and two runs. It is the first time the Blue Jays (79-77) have had five starters win at least 10 games in one season. It is the third time they have had five pitchers with at least 10 wins when relievers are included. James Paxton (6-4) did not survive the third inning in his first major-league game against the Blue Jays. He allowed seven hits, six walks and nine runs (eight earned) in 2 2-3 innings. Paxton, who is from Ladner, B.C., was a first-round pick by Toronto in the 2009 draft. A deal could not be reached and Paxton was picked in the fourth round in the 2010 draft by the Mariners. The Blue Jays led 4-1 after the first inning and 9-1 after three innings to hand Seattle (83-73) its third loss in a row. The Mariners scored a run in the first when Robinson Cano doubled home Austin Jackson led off with an infield single. The Blue Jays scored four in their first on a bases-loaded triple by Valencia with one out and a two-out single by Steve Tolleson. Toronto loaded the bases with one out on a single by Bautista and walks by Edwin Encarnacion, a wild pitch, and a walk by Dioner Navarro. That set up Valencias triple, which was not without some controversy. He was given the triple when a video review determined he was safe after the Blue Jays challenged the out call. Toronto chased Paxton in the five-run third to increase their lead to 9-1. Valencia led off with a double. John Mayberry walked and Tolleson sacrificed the runners to second and third. Pillar then walked with two out to load the bases. Jose Reyes singled off the glove of third baseman Seager to drive in a run, followed by Bautista walking to force in a run. Right-hander Brandon Maurer took over for Seattle. A passed ball scored Pillar and Encarnacion scored two runs on a single deflected by Seager. The Blue Jays scored an unearned run in the fourth on singles by Tolleson and Dalton Pompey, a native of Mississauga, Ont., and a throwing error by shortstop Chris Taylor. Bautista hit his 35th homer of the season to lead off the fifth against Tom Wilhelmsen. Bautista moved past George Bell and tied Joe Carter for third on the Blue Jays all-time list with 203 homers. Seager hit his 25th homer of the season in the sixth to cut the lead to 11-2. Pillar hit his first homer of the season, with Pompey on first after an infield single, against left-hander Lucas Luetge in the sixth. Gose, who entered the game among the seventh-inning defensive changes, hit his second homer of the season in the seventh against right-hander Danny Farquhar. Rookie right-hander Kendall Graveman allowed a run in the eighth. Toronto reliever Sean Nolin allowed a homer to Chris Denorfia in the ninth. NOTES: RHP Chris Young will not start for the Mariners in the finale of the four-game series on Thursday after going 0-3 with an 8.25 earned-run average in his past five starts.

Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at! Dear Kerry, In Friday nights game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils, a hooking penalty was called on Marek Zidlicky at 8:12 of the second period as Phil Kessel scored. The penalty was still assessed! I thought when you scored, it negated the penalty? What did I miss? Thanks,Gloria Powell-Smith Gloria, What you missed was 1:05 on the penalty clock that was being served by Andy Greene of the Devils for hooking Mason Raymond. Greenes remaining penalty time terminated by virtue of Phil Kessels power-play goal scored on a nifty coast-to-coast rush at 8:12 of the third period. A team that has been scored upon is entitled to relief of one minor penalty only so the delayed hooking penalty being signaled against Zidlicky was assessed and served with the termination of Greenes penalty. Rule 16.2 tells us that when a team is playing short-handed (below the numerical strength of its opponent) at the time a goal is scored, the minor or bench minor penalty which terminates automatically is the one with the least amount of time on the clock. (Coincidental minor penalties to both teams do not cause a team to be shorthanded.) The minor penalty expiration criteria are as follows: (Questions for the ref to consider) Is tthe team scored against shorthanded? Is the team scored against serving a minor on the clock? If both criteria are satisfied, the minor penalty with the least amount of time on the clock shall terminate, except when coincidental minor penalties are being served. [url=]Cheap Heat Jerseys[/url]. No penalty shall expire when a goal is scored against a team on a penalty shot. If the teams had been playing at even strength (or even if the Leafs were shorthanded) at the time of Kessels goal, the delayed penalty being signaled to Zidlicky would have been negated under Rule 15.2: If the penalty to be imposed is a minor penalty and a goal is scored on the play by the non-offending side, the minor penalty shall not be imposed. If two or more minor penalties were to be imposed, the captain would designate to the referee which minor penalty will be washed out as a result of the goal. In the case of a double minor penalty being imposed, one of the minor penalties would automatically terminate. Gloria, when I first joined the NHL in the mid 1970s, the situation you presented would have been treated differently under the rules. Back then, the team scored upon was not only entitled to relief of the minor penalty being served (by Andy Greene) but additionally any delayed penalty that was being signaled (to Marek Zidlicky) was also negated through the scoring of a power play goal (by Phil Kessel).
