m Ducks will try to stay hot in December on Saturday

OAKLAND, Calif. Louis Williams Jersey . -- Jeff Samardzija arrived at the ballpark nearly five hours before making his first start with his new ballclub. The right-hander left having secured a four-game sweep for Oakland with a performance that showed exactly why the Athletics were so eager to get him in a trade with the Chicago Cubs. Samardzija pitched seven strong innings to win his Oakland debut and the As beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Sunday. "First impressions are always important," said Samardzija after lowering his overall ERA to 2.74. "Like I said yesterday, they didnt need me here. They were doing just fine without me. I dont want to come in and change anything and change the atmosphere. I just want to come in and add and do my part," he said. He did just that, giving up four hits and one run with five strikeouts and one walk while earning his first win since June 7. With the Cubs, Samardzija was 2-7 despite a 2.83 ERA. He was voted to the NL All-Star team but wont pitch and will spend the game in the AL dugout. "He was excited as you could be," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. "It was great to get him off to a good start like that. Terrific performance." Samardzija, acquired a day earlier, received several standing ovations. He was cheered during pregame warmups and again after striking out the side in the seventh. The veteran pitcher was equally excited after receiving some early run support, something that was scarce in Chicago. The Cubs scored two runs or fewer in 11 of his 17 starts in the NL this season. Oakland had no such issue. Jed Lowrie had two hits and scored twice, and leadoff hitter John Jaso added a pair of hits and an RBI for the As, who won their fourth straight after getting swept in three games at Detroit. Stephen Vogt singled and tripled to help the As complete their first series sweep of the Blue Jays since taking a three-game series in 2000. Oakland hadnt swept a four-game series from Toronto since May 22-24, 1981. "It was beautiful, man, that was awesome," Samardzija said. "Just getting one early run as a pitcher is the best thing ever. You can go out and pound the zone and understand if a guy gets on base so be it. And the way (the As) take at-bats is outstanding." Nate Freiman and Craig Gentry also drove in runs for the As. Lowrie doubled and scored in the second, then Oakland added two more in the fourth to extend their majors-leading record to 55-33. Pinch-hitter Derek Norris added an RBI double in the eighth for Oakland. Steve Tolleson had a pinch-hit home run off As closer Sean Doolittle in the ninth for the Blue Jays, who have lost six straight on the road. Doolittle got his 13th save. Toronto got a stellar outing from starter Drew Hutchison but for the fourth straight game had little success offensively. The Blue Jays went 0 for 18 with runners in scoring position during the series. They didnt have many opportunities against Samardzija and two relievers. Toronto managed just four baserunners over the final eight innings and had only two get past first base. "We got shut down big time," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons after his club was outscored 14-4 in the four-game sweep. "Were just not very good right now. Were just not producing." Oakland general manager Billy Beane got Samardzija and pitcher Jason Hammel for a package of prospects that included the two most recent first-round draft picks by the As. Samardzija pitched out of a two-on, one-out jam in the first by getting cleanup hitter Jose Bautista to ground into an inning-ending double play. "That was probably one of the biggest pitches of the game for me," Samardzija said. "It allowed me to relax and then to come out and put a few on the board. I was able to relax and pound the zone." Samardzija retired 13 of the next 14 batters he faced until Jose Reyes singled with one out in the sixth. Munenori Kawasaki followed with a double and Melky Cabreras groundout scored Reyes. Hutchison (6-7) struck out four and walked two in his first career start against the As. The punchless Blue Jays went into the game shorthanded. Edwin Encarnacion strained his right quad legging out an infield grounder on Saturday and was held out of the lineup. The Toronto slugger underwent an MRI before the game, though the results were not disclosed. NOTES: Cole Gillespie went hitless in three at-bats for Toronto after being claimed off waivers. ... Oakland OF Brandon Moss underwent an MRI on his injured left ankle. Results were not immediately known. ... Toronto OF Brad Glenn was designated for assignment. The Blue Jays also claimed OF/DH Nolan Reimould off waivers from Baltimore. ... As RHP Jesse Chavez will pitch the series opener against San Francisco on Monday. ... Blue Jays LHP JA Happ (7-4) takes the hill in the opener against the Angels. Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys . The 6-foot-10 centre who won an NBA title with the Miami Heat was voted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Monday, adding that honour to becoming a board member at his alma mater. Chris Paul Jersey . Costa injured his right thigh muscle against Barcelona last Saturday and had sought treatment in Belgrade from a doctor specializing in using fluid derived from horse placenta to repair damaged cells. http://www.clippersnbateamshop.com/aust … rs-jersey/ . Instead, Nonis and Kessel were sorting through the fallout of a wild melee with the Buffalo Sabres, one that saw Kessel suspended for the duration of the pre-season.(SportsNetwork.com) - The NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks will try to stay hot in December on Saturday night as they visit the Arizona Coyotes. The Ducks have won nine of their 11 games this month and top the league with 51 points. They came off of a 3-2-0 road trip with Mondays home victory against San Jose, beating the Sharks 3-2 in overtime. Anaheim has won all four of its games at home this month and begins an eight- game residency on Sunday with a visit from the Vancouver Canucks. The Ducks next road game after tonight isnt scheduled until Jan. 17. Ryan Kesler had the game-winning goal in the win over the Sharks sniping a shot past Sharks goaltender Antti Niemi and into the net at the 58-second mark of overtime. He stopped me at the far post a few times. Third time is a charm, Kesler deadpanned. Rickard Rakell netted his first NHL regular-season goal and Cam Fowler also lit the lamp for the Ducks, while Ryan Getzlaf had two assists and Frederik Andersen came up with 30 saves. Anaheim lost forward Tim Jackman to a facial injury in the second period as he was hit in the face by the glove and butt end of the stick by San Joses John Scott. Scott was suspended four games for the incident. JJackmans status for this game is unknown as the Ducks visit a Coyotes team that is looking to beat a team other than the Edmonton Oilers. Blake Griffin Jersey. The Coyotes are 3-8-2 in their last 13 games and all three wins have come versus the Oilers. That includes a 5-1 triumph in Edmonton on Tuesday. Former Oilers Sam Gagner and Devan Dubnyk shined in the win, with Gagner posting two goals and four points and Dubnyk making 26 saves. I found a few things that I can really concentrate on every game, said Dubnyk. Its about pushing, stopping and being set and finding the puck. You have to work to do those things. Arizona also received goals from Martin Erat, Keith Yandle and Brandon Gormley. Martin Hanzal supplied three assists in the win. The Coyotes seek a second straight win at home. They had snapped a franchise- worst nine-game skid as the hosting team with a 2-1 overtime victory versus the Oilers on Dec. 16. Arizona forward Lauri Korpikoski could return to the lineup tonight after missing the previous four games with a lower-body injury. The Coyotes split two meetings with the Ducks earlier this season in Anaheim. The Ducks have won six of the previous seven meetings overall.
