    BALTIMORE – The Blue Jays won the game, 11-3, and the series, two out of three, at Camden Yards but it came at a price. Adrian Dantley Jazz Jersey . Maicer Izturis, whod begun to morph into the Blue Jays starting second baseman thanks to a hot start offensively, sprained his left knee in a freak accident in the first inning. It happened as he was descending the dugout steps to the bat rack. Izturis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. It was a freak accident and while the early diagnosis is a sprain, when Izturis explains it, hes expecting the worst. "Its in the knee, I felt it pop twice," said Izturis. "Now I feel pain. Its sore right now and Im worried about that." Izturis, off to a .286/.324/.314 start, will have an MRI on Monday in Minneapolis. Infielder Munenori Kawasaki has been called up from Buffalo. Meanwhile, Colby Rasmus left the game after scoring a run in the sixth inning. He says he tweaked his left hamstring while making a running catch on a Nick Markakis fly ball in the fifth. Rasmus doesnt believe its serious. "Just to make sure its nothing big and weve got an off day (Monday) and we were up in the game, so I decided to come out just to make sure everythings good," said Rasmus. If Rasmus is forced to miss games, the timing isnt good. Hes heating up at the plate with home runs in back-to-back games and a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon on Sunday. Rasmus home run in the first inning on Sunday left the park, literally, landing on Eutaw Street in front of the famous warehouse building in right field. It was the 78th home run to land on Eutaw Street in the history of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, which is in its 23rd season. Encarnacion feels relief Edwin Encarnacion broke out on Sunday with a three-hit game, which included his first two RBIs of the season. Did Edwin feel any relief? "Big time," said Encarnacion. Manager John Gibbons dropped Encarnacion to the fifth spot in the order, moving Adam Lind up to clean-up. "Just timing," said Encarnacion of his early season issues. "Hitting is about timing. When you have the timing, you can hit. I feel a lot better the last couple of games so I hope I continue to do that." Through 12 games, Encarnacion had been hitting only .174/.240/.261. Hes still looking for his first home run. Happ to join Jays in Minneapolis Left-hander J.A. Happ, who started the season on the disabled list with inflammation in his back, will rejoin the ballclub in time for the three-game series against the Twins. To make room for Happ on the active roster, catcher Erik Kratz was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Reyes and Janssen go to Florida While their teammates travel to chilly Minneapolis, Jose Reyes (hamstring) and Casey Janssen (abdominal strain) are headed to Dunedin to continue their respective rehabilitations. Reyes will play in an extended spring training game on Monday, which will allow him to lead off each inning. Hell then play for Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday. Janssen is expected to make an in-game appearance no later than Tuesday. The Blue Jays hope to have Reyes back for next weekends series in Cleveland. The timetable for Janssens return is less clear at the moment. Dante Exum Jersey . When a game is in the balance, however, they still have the personnel and the experience to end up with the two points. Utah Jazz Jerseys . The 25-year-old Lu, a regular on the Japan LPGA Tour after giving up her LPGA Tour membership in 2010, shot an 8-under 64 in windy, wet conditions at Kintetsu Kashikojima.Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Russell Westbrook made an emphatic return to the court, pouring in 32 points in just 24 minutes to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 105-78 blowout of the punchless New York Knicks at Chesapeake Energy Arena. In his first game back since fracturing his right hand on Oct. 30, Westbrook went 12-of-17 from the field while amassing eight assists and seven rebounds and providing a much-needed spark to the injury-plagued Thunder, who won consecutive games for the first time this season. The Knicks, meanwhile, struggled mightily on offense with their star out of the lineup. As Carmelo Anthony sat out a second straight contest with back spasms, New York shot a meager 38.7 percent and missed 17-of-19 attempts from 3-point range to fall for the 12th time in 14 games. Amare Stoudemire was New Yorks lone bright spot, recording 20 points on 7- of-8 shooting and pulling down nine rebounds. Serge Ibaka added 14 points and Jeremy Lamb had 13 off the bench in the Thunders wire-to-wire win. Steven Adams posted 13 rebounds. Westbrook wasted little time making an impact, dropping in 12 points over the games first eight minutes as the Thunder sped out to a 23-6 lead. The All- Star point guard finished the opening quarter with 14 points and four assists while hitting 6-of-7 shots. Donovan Mitchell Jersey. While Westbrook was red-hot, the Knicks were ice cold over the initial 12 minutes. New York made a woeful 4-of-22 tries from the floor while falling behind 30-13 at periods end. Those struggles continued into the early stages of the second quarter, which began with a 10-0 Oklahoma City run in which Lamb sunk a pair of threes. The Thunder led by as many as 28 during the frame before cruising into the break owning a commanding 59-33 advantage. The Knicks continued to miss shots during a third quarter in which they managed just 17 points to trail 82-50 heading into the fourth. Oklahoma City was ahead by as much as 37 in the final stanza, building a 98-61 lead with five minutes to play. Game Notes The Knicks are now 1-6 at Chesapeake Energy Arena since the Thunder relocated to Oklahoma City from Seattle ... J.R. Smith, starting in place of Anthony, mustered just two points while going 1-of-9 from the floor ... Tim Hardaway Jr. finished with 11 points off the bench for the Knicks ... Lamb went 3-for-4 from 3-point range and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic JerseysWholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
