TORONTO — The Blue Jays have placed reliever Jan Perez on the 60-day disabled list with a torn ligament in his left elbow. Adam Shaheen Youth Jersey . Perez suffered the injury in Friday nights loss to the Oakland Athletics. “Juans not a young guy,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said as the team awaited news on the extent of the 34-year-olds injury. “Hes a warrior. Hes a great competitor and hes done a good job for us. Its unfortunate. We dont know how its going to end up. You feel for anybody in this business.” Perez pitched an inning and two-thirds in Torontos loss to the Oakland Athletics before feeling something go wrong. “Any time the guy calls you out there, yeah, its usually not good,” Gibbons said. The Blue Jays recalled righty reliever Mickey Storey from their triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons. Storey, 27, appeared in two games this season, pitching 3 2/3 innings with a 7.36 ERA. “He can fit that role that we need: a guy that can pitch some innings, two, three four, maybe,” Gibbons said. “A strike-thrower. Hes been here before. Kind of long guy, yeah. We can use him in different roles. Hopefully we dont get to that point, but if we do, he can throw multiple innings for us.” Perez made 19 appearances this season, going 1-3 with a 3.69 ERA. Spending most of his professional career in the minor leagues, Perez has also been with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers. The Blue Jays got a strong contribution early in Perezs tenure in Toronto, as he didnt allow an earned run in his first 14 appearances. Tarik Cohen Womens Jersey . Greece was on the wrong end of a 3-0 rout to Colombia in its first game of the tournament. They surrendered a goal in just the sixth minute of the contest, and despite some promising attacking play, failed to crawl back into the match. Japan, on the other hand, struck first in its match with Ivory Coast, with Keisuke Honda putting his side into the lead in the 16th minute. Eddie Jackson Bears Jersey .

Playing the lowly Buffalo Sabres helped, too. Brayden Schenn scored two goals, and the Flyers broke a four-game skid with a 5-2 win over Buffalo on Sunday night. Philadelphia, 0-2-2 in its previous four games, maintained third place in the Metropolitan Division — two points ahead of Columbus — by winning for the second time in eight games (2-4-2). With four games remaining, the Flyers trail the second-place New York Rangers by two points, but have a game in hand. “Our intensity was up and guys were skating and working right away in the game,” Philadelphia coach Craig Berube said. “It was important for the confidence level just to get guys spirits back up.” The Flyers hadnt played poorly during the losing streak, which included two defeats to Boston and one to St. Louis. The Bruins and Blues lead their respective conferences. Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier and Zac Rinaldo scored second-period goals to put Philadelphia ahead 4-0. Matt Read also scored and Mark Streit had three assists. “I thought we played a solid team game, defence-first mentality,” Schenn said. “Two points is key. We just have to worry about ourselves and worry about the two points each night.” Cory Hodgson and Mike Weber scored third-period goals for Buffalo, which lost its sixth straight road game and fell to 2-13-1 in its last 16 overall. The Sabres, assured of finishing with the fewest points in the NHL, have scored eight goals during their road skid. Buffalo, already missing 10 players due to injuries, might have lost another as Chad Ruhwedel sustained a concussion on a third-period hit by Rinaldo, who was given a match penalty for the blow to Ruhwedels head. “Theres no big brother for them,” Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said of his inexperienced players. “They have to sink or swim, and certain games like this, its going to catch up to us.” Rinaldo, who entered with a team-high 137 penalty minutes, racked up 16 on Sunday and could face an NHL suspension. “I had a lot of speed going at him. I put my shoulder down, and as he shot the puck my shoulder hit him clearly,” Rinaldo said. “Proof is in the pudding right there. I shouldnt have done it. Theres no need for it. Were up 4-0,, but its part of the game. Eddie Jackson Jersey. “That always happens with me. I get on a good streak and then something bad always happens. I try not to think about it too much.” Read got Philadelphia on the board 6 1/2 minutes into the game by scoring on a rebound. After Buffalos Cory Conacher turned the puck over, Streit fired a slap shot that caromed off the post to the slot, where a wide-open Read unleashed a wrister past rookie goalie Nathan Lieuwen. “As soon as (Read) got that goal, it gave us a boost and we started scoring goals,” Schenn said. The Flyers turned the game into a rout with three second-period goals. Rinaldo, known more for pesky play than scoring, netted his second goal of the season when his wrist shot went off Lieuwens glove and trickled over the line to make it 2-0 with 12:20 left. Schenn deflected in Streits slap shot on the power play with 5:40 remaining, snapping the Flyers 0-for-12 skid on the man-advantage and stretching the lead to three goals. Lecavalier then put a shot above Lieuwens right shoulder just over 1 1/2 minutes later from the top of the right circle. Mason earned an assist on the goal for his first point of the season and seventh of his eight-year career. Schenn scored his second goal with 4:50 left in the game when he fired a wrist shot past Lieuwens glove. Lieuwen, making his fifth career start, had 32 saves. “When you have an experienced team in front of an inexperienced goaltender, theres positions where you cover up for the mistakes,” Nolan said. “They dont have to get shots from all over. Its one of those situations where it is what it is, and theyre getting a lot of work.” NOTES: The Sabres were without wingers Drew Stafford (33 points) and Chris Stewart (26), who entered ranked third and fifth in team scoring. Also out were Buffalos top two goalies, Jhonas Enroth and Michal Neuvirth. … Philadelphia swept the season series 3-0 and won its fifth straight at home against Buffalo and eighth in 10 games overall. … Flyers RW Steve Downie (lower body) missed his eighth straight game. … Philadelphia will next play at lowly Florida on Tuesday and then face Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, which have both clinched post-season berths, on the road before Sundays home finale against Carolina. … Webers goal was his first in 64 games this season.
