BALTIMORE – The Blue Jays have won 40 of their first 70 games thanks in no small part to the clubs better luck with the injury bug this season. Air Max 98 Thunder Blue For Sale . The weekend at Oriole Park has been less kind, with three players suffering varying degrees of injury. The worst ailment of the three, at least optically, is the deep bone bruise suffered by Adam Lind when he fouled a pitch off the top of his right foot in the sixth inning of Saturdays game. An x-ray after the game showed a deep bone bruise but no fracture. That diagnosis was backed up by a CT scan taken on Sunday morning. Lind, however, was in a walking boot and on crutches when he arrived at the ballpark. He was seen requiring the help of a golf cart to get off the team bus. R.A. Dickey played catch before the game with bullpen catcher Alex Andreopoulos. He tweaked his right groin in the seventh inning of Saturdays loss and removed himself from the game. Dickey insisted afterward his exit was a precautionary measure and expected to make his next start, scheduled for Saturday in Cincinnati. Brett Cecil is dealing with a left groin injury, which he suffered in the eighth inning of Friday nights game. He played catch before Sundays game. "He said he feels okay; not great but okay," said pitching coach Pete Walker. "He feels a little improvement from (Saturday) so treat the heck out of it today, get back in there and treat it and hopefully hes available on Tuesday." The Blue Jays decided against making rash decisions on Lind and Cecil, preferring instead to get through the series with the Orioles and into Mondays off-day before opening a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. A decision will have to be made by Tuesday. Manager John Gibbons worked with a three-man bench (technically a two-man bench with Lind unavailable) and an eight-man bullpen (technically a seven-man bullpen with Cecil unavailable) on Sunday. The club has an impending decision to make on the status of Colby Rasmus, who spent the weekend in Toledo while on a rehab assignment with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. Rasmus was to be reevaluated on Sunday. Buffalo concludes its series with the Mudhens on Sunday evening. Two outfielders, Kevin Pillar and Darin Mastroianni, are inside their 10-day option windows after being recently sent back to Buffalo. Either could be recalled if they replace a player going on the disabled list. Gibbons, at the moment, also has only one lefthander in the bullpen in Aaron Loup, although Gibbons indicated on Saturday he has confidence in some of his righthanded options to attack opposition lefthanded hitters late in games. He mentioned, specifically, Steve Delabar because of his split-fingered pitch and Sergio Santos, whose slider is as good as anyones in baseball when hes on his game. The priority is resetting the four-man bench rather than continuing with an eight-man bullpen, which essentially eliminates the chance of recalling another lefthanded reliever like Rob Rasmussen. Moving On Up Lefthanded starting pitching prospect Daniel Norris, who recently participated in the Single-A Florida State League All-Star Game, has been promoted to Double-A New Hampshire. The 21-year-old was dominant for the Dunedin Blue Jays, helping the club to the first half division title. In 13 starts, Norris went 6-0 with a 1.22 ERA, a 1.025 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings. He had a 4.22:1 strikeout to walk ratio, easily his best output since turning pro in 2012. Norris was selected by the Blue Jays in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Science Hill High School in Johnson City, Tennessee. Nike Air Max 98 Yellow . The closer wasnt available.

LOS ANGELES -- From Jodie Meeks big day to the final result, this was definitely a surprise. Meeks scored 24 of his career-high 42 points in the second half, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat Oklahoma City 114-110 on Sunday despite a triple-double by Thunder star Kevin Durant. Pau Gasol added 20 points and 11 rebounds for the injury-ravaged Lakers, who had lost 29 of their previous 37 games. Meeks was 11 of 18 from the field and 14 for 14 at the line while becoming the third player to reach the 30-point mark this season for last-place Los Angeles (22-42). "The most important thing is that we keep going out there and fighting and not giving up," Meeks said. "The season isnt going the way that we planned, but we still have 18 games left. So well play them hard and see what happens." Meeks is averaging 19.2 points in 11 games since returning from a sprained right ankle. Before the injury, he was averaging 14.4. "He got on fire," coach Mike DAntoni said. "He has really improved his game. Defensively, he was out of sight on Russell Westbrook the whole time. He put out a lot of energy in this game, but he has been doing that on a pretty consistent basis. Jodie has been our most consistent performer. Its really fun to watch someone get better." Durant had 27 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists for his third triple-double this season. Serge Ibaka had 21 points and 15 boards for Oklahoma City. The Thunder (46-17) began the day in a three-way tie with San Antonio and Indiana for the NBAs best record. The Pacers played at Dallas on Sunday night and the Spurs were idle. "We lost. In some games, someone will have 40 points on you that is not supposed to have 40," Durant said. "We pressure hard so high out on the pick-and-roll that it opened everything up, and they exploited it. They were hitting the pocket passes and going through the lane to get the ball to their shooters. But that is how we play, so we have to figure out how to make second and third efforts." After giving up an average of 136 points over their previous three games while losing to New Orleans, the Clippers and Denver, the Lakers trailed the Thunder by as many as 18 in the second quarter before taking their first lead on a pair of free throws by Meeks that made it 71-70 with 4:35 left in the third. "I was trying to get my teammates involved, and they did a great job finding me in transition and in some set plays. Nike Air Max 98 Green. So I give credit to those guys for helping me out with a big game," Meeks said. "Being in a rhythm like that is fun, but getting a win is also fun. That was most important thing. We were down 18, so I was trying to do anything I could to help the team get back in the game." The Thunder are 3-5 since beating the Lakers 107-103 at Staples Center on Feb. 13 behind 43 points by Durant, who is vying for his fourth scoring title in five seasons. The Lakers took a 12-point lead into the fourth quarter and increased it to 95-77 on Jordan Farmars 3-pointer with 9:42 remaining. Durant then fueled a 20-7 run with 10 points and former Laker Derek Fisher capper the rally with back-to-back 3s 24 seconds apart, pulling the Thunder to 102-97 with 4:36 to play. Russell Westbrook, who had 20 points, seven rebounds and eight assists for the Thunder, narrowed the gap to 110-107 on a driving dunk with 57.3 seconds on the clock. But he missed everything on another 3-point try 24 seconds later and newly acquired Kent Bazemore helped put it away with a driving layup -- two of his seven points in the final 2:02. Westbrook finished 7 for 23 from the field and tied a season worst with eight turnovers. "We need to have a sense of urgency, knowing that teams are coming at us every night," Westbrook said. "I missed some shots, but I do not think the game is all about shooting."
