BOSTON – Josh Johnson wasnt looking for excuses. "No," replied Johnson when asked if he felt he was getting squeezed by home plate umpire Bruce Dreckman early in Fridays 7-5 loss to the Red Sox. "I mean, thats part of the game. I dont ever complain about the calls or anything like that." Johnsons performance of 3 1/3 innings, five earned runs on eight hits and a whopping 90 pitches, had manager John Gibbons rolling through his bullpen once again. "We got beat up in the rotation again," said Gibbons. "That makes it tough." Johnsons evening of hard labour came one night after Chien-Ming Wang was shelled for seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings. The math wont come up Blue Jays here: the bullpens been taxed for 11 innings of work in 24 hours. "We battled to come back and tie it," said Gibbons, crediting his offence for overcoming an early 5-0 deficit. "They dropped two on us, again, real quick. But the bullpen cant be perfect every night, theyve been pitching so well. It starts with the starter and theyve been taking it to us pretty good." Toronto chipped away with three runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and the tying run in the seventh on Edwin Encarnacions club-leading 23rd home run. In the bottom half, Neil Wagner was chased from the game after back to back singles by Shane Victorino and Dustin Pedroia, both of whom would later come around to score, breaking the 5-5 logjam. It would have been inconceivable in spring training to consider the notion of Johnson having but one win as a Blue Jay at the halfway point of the season. But, due in part to injury and in part to inconsistency when available, the lone victory is all Johnson has to show for his time in Toronto. The Blue Jays werent taking the bait on the subject of Dreckman, who appeared to have a fluctuating strike zone early in the ball game, one that benefitted Bostons rookie starter, Allen Webster. On the fourth pitch of the game, with the count 2-1, Jose Reyes took a second strike that, according to the Red Soxs TV rightholders "K-Box," was slightly off the outside corner of the plate. A fair call, if its made consistently and for both pitchers. It wasnt. Johnson was forced to grind through deep count strikeouts of Jacoby Ellsbury and Victorino in the first. In both at-bats, Johnson was just off the outside corner with fastballs similar to Websters versus Reyes. Those pitches were called balls. In the second, Johnson battled Mike Napoli to a full count but lost him to a walk, then fell behind 2-1 to left-hand hitting Daniel Nava on another close pitch. Nava would single, both he and Napoli would later score and the Red Sox were off to the races. Johnson struggled. He didnt pitch well enough to win. To his credit, he didnt make excuses when offered an opportunity to do so. That said, its reasonable to argue Johnson was forced to pitch a different game than Webster, a game which required him to cut more of the plate with his pitches. Bostons offence, chalk full of notoriously patient hitters, sat on ready made fastballs and sliders which didnt have their customary break. It added up to a tough night. Toronto dropped to 1-4 on the road trip and now the best the Jays can hope for this weekend is a split of this series at Fenway Park. ROGERS LOOKS TO BOUNCE BACK Esmil Rogers gets the start in Saturdays late afternoon game against the Red Sox. Hes looking to bounce back after taking the loss in a 4-1 defeat on Monday in Tampa Bay. "I dont try to worry about nothing," said Rogers. "Im just trying to go into the game like the same as I do right now. The confidence I lost was just one inning, the third inning thats it, the other innings it was great. Ive just got to get everything back and get ready for tomorrow." In four starts since taking the rotation spot of the injured Brandon Morrow (forearm strain), Rogers is 2-1 with a 2.67 ERA. Left-hander Felix Doubront (4-3, 4.33) is scheduled to pitch for the Red Sox. KAWASAKI RETURNS Munenori Kawasaki returned to the Blue Jays clubhouse after a two-day stop with Triple-A Buffalo. He didnt miss a beat with the media. "Good to see you," he said. As for his brief time in the minor leagues: "Buffalo," he said. "I like Buffalo teammates. Good. Everybody nice guy. I appreciate it. Thank you very much." Asked what he hoped to accomplish this go-around: "I cant speak English." The affable 32-year-old embraced teammates upon arriving in the clubhouse. MILLER PASSES AWAY The Blue Jays are mourning the death of pitcher Justin Miller, a member of the 2002, 2004 and 2005 teams. Miller, 35, was found dead at his home in Palm Harbor, Florida. No cause of death has been released. Miller had a career 24-14 record with a 4.82 ERA over 216 appearances, 33 starts. He had appeared most recently for the Dodgers in 2010.

And follow TSN.ca right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. Ryan Allen Jersey . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points.

Eric Rowe Jersey . Dancevic won his singles match on Friday, defeating Go Soeda 6-4, 7-6 (2), 6-1, to even the best-of-five series at a game apiece. World No. 18 Kei Nishikori defeated Peter Polansky in the opening match, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. But then, the Avalanche committed three more infractions over the next 3:44, and the Islanders took advantage to score two 5-on-3 goals. Somehow, Colorado survived Saturday night. The Avalanche regained their composure, and held on to beat the Islanders 5-2 -- the deceptive margin coming as the result of two empty-net goals in the final minute. Matt Duchene scored twice in a 2:44 span to give Colorado that three-goal advantage. Nathan MacKinnon got the Avalanche on the board, and Gabriel Landeskog and Paul Stasny added the empty-netters. Jean-Sebastien Giguere allowed the two 5-on-3 goals, but was otherwise string, stopping 30 shots. Colorado coach Patrick Roy credited his squad for not panicking after giving up the 5-on-3 goals. "I thought we remained pretty calm on the bench," Roy said. "We had a power play that gave us some momentum back. ... And we also had (a) great save. I think (Giguere) touched it with his glove at the end. That was a big save for us." Duchene broke a nine-goal drought to reach 101 for his career. Roy didnt believe Duchene was pressing in search of his 100th goal. "People made a big story of that, but not me," Roy said. "He had chances.every night. It was just a matter of time. And tonight he was resilient. He went to the net, he stayed there, and took advantage of the rebound. And then the second shot was a perfect shot. Right under the bar. It was a beauty." The win snapped a two-game skid for Colorado, and gave it some momentum going into the Olympic break. "Im vvery proud of our players," Roy said.dddddddddddd "Hopefully, our guys have a good 10 days off." For the Islanders it was a disappointing end to the pre-Olympic portion of the schedule. All appeared to be lost in the second period, where they looked extremely sluggish and could only manage four shots on goal. But the flurry of Colorado penalties ignited the New York offence. John Tavares scored his 24th goal of the season to put the Islanders on the board with 8:43 remaining. Just 57 seconds later, Lubomir Visnovsky added another, to cut the deficit to one. The Islanders had the momentum on their side, and a raucous crowd behind them. They also had another 1:55 on the power play. But they were unable to get the equalizer. Islanders coach Jack Capuano was frustrated by the fact that his team was dominant in significant stretches of the first and third periods, but couldnt turn it into a positive result. "Same old story," Capuano said. "We dominated the game, and we dont win the hockey game. ... We had some unbelievable chances. Give their goaltender credit. He played extremely well." Capuano expressed hope that his club will bounce back after the time off. "We will take.three or four days and regroup, and go through some video of the first half, things that we need to work on, and try to concentrate on those areas." NOTES: Landeskog extended his point streak for the Avalanche to nine games. He assisted on MacKinnons first period goal, in addition to the empty netter. ... PA Parenteau was held without a point in his return to the Nassau Coliseum. Parenteau spent two seasons with the Islanders before signing with the Avalanche in the summer of 2012.
