San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork. Morgan Moses Redskins Jersey .com) - The San Antonio Spurs didnt need their Big Four to make easy work of the Carmelo
Anthony-less New York Knicks. Marco Belinelli had 22 points off the bench as the
Spurs routed the Knicks 109-95 on Wednesday night. Tony Parker missed his second
straight game with a left hamstring strain, Kawhi Leonard sat with a bruised
hand and Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili were both held out to rest. Danny Green
netted 13 points, while Boris Diaw added 12 points and four assists for the
Spurs, who had dropped two of their last four games coming in on the heels of an
eight-game winning streak. Anthony sat out due to left knee soreness. Tim
Hardaway Jr. posted 23 points to lead New York, which has lost 10 consecutive
games. The Spurs were up 29-26 after a quarter of play and led 56-52 at
halftime, but pulled away in the third quarter. They began the second half on a
9-2 run, with four straight Aron Baynes free throws capping the surge and
staking San Antonio to a 65-54 cushion. A 16-0 burst later in the frame put the
game away. Belinelli knocked down a pair of 3-pointers to finish off the swing
and give the hosts a commanding 86-61 margin later in the stanza. San Antonio,
which outscored New York 38-21 in the third, took a 94-73 spread into the
fourth, where it cruised to the easy triumph. Game Notes The Spurs moved to 8-1

it was time to make an adjustment.CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Jose Bautista hit a long
home run off Roberto Hernandez three batters into the game, and the Toronto Blue
Jays beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Wednesday in rain-shortened spring
training opener for both teams. Bautistas home run landed outside of the
ballpark at Bright House Field. The game was called in the middle of the seventh
inning. "It felt pretty good, I cant deny that," Bautista said. "More
importantly I felt like I was seeing the ball great. I havent been playing for a
while so thats a positive." Bautista missed the last six weeks of the season
with a hip injury, the second straight year in which he ended the season on the
disabled list. He hit 28 home runs in 2013 after reaching 27 the year before. He
was 1 for 2 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday. Ryan Howard and
Marlon Byrd each had run-scoring singles off former Phillies left-hander
J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first. STARTING TIME Phillies: Hernandez, making
his Phillies debut, allowed two runs on four hits in two innings. He is the
front runner for the fifth starters job after signing a one-year, $4.5 million
contract as a free agent this winter. "When I face him I try to throw changeups
and sinkers down," Hernandez said of the home run to Bautista. "But today I got
down in the count and had to throw it down the middle. I missed up." Blue Jays:
Happ struggled in his only inning against his former team. Although he ended up
striking out thhe side, he gave up four hits and a walk in facing eight batters.

2.93 ERA. Happ was 5-7 with a 4.56 ERA in 18 starts with the Blue Jays last
season. TRAINERS ROOM Philadelphia left-hander Cole Hamels threw off the mound
for the first time this spring. The 30-year-old Hamels entered camp behind the
rest of the pitchers after experiencing biceps soreness in November. Hamels will
throw another side session on Saturday and isnt likely to pitch in a Grapefruit
League game for another two weeks. HOWARDS END Howard got off to a fast start,
singling in a run in the bottom of first. The Phillies first baseman played only
80 games last year because of knee problems. Manager Ryne Sandberg is impressed
with Howards progress. "I really like Howards aggressiveness early in the count
with men on base," Sandberg said. KNUCKLED Cliff Lee will make his first start
of the spring on Thursday, when the Phillies take on the Blue Jays for the
second straight day, this time in Dunedin. But several Phillies regulars will
not be in the lineup, including Howard, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. Toronto
is starting knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey. But Sandberg says hes not sitting
his regulars because of Dickeys unusual pitch. "I dont think that comes into
play that much," Sandberg said. "If they keep it simple, it comes down to see
the ball and hit it." Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
