TORONTO -- John Gibbons knows his team cant afford to lose its best player in the middle of a wild card chase. So when Jose Bautista was ejected from Sundays 2-1 extra innings loss to the Tampa Bay Rays for arguing a strikeout with home plate umpire Bill Welke, Gibbons didnt mince words when asked about the situation. "Bottom line we need him in the game. Say your peace, and get the hell out of there," the Blue Jays manager said. "Were trying to get in the playoffs, we need you on the field. "He (Bautista) is a marked man in this game. Bill Welke, I thought he had a pretty good zone today. He was steady, I thought he was looking to call strikes. But we need you in the game." Bautistas absence brought Nolan Reimold into the contest at right field. The move proved costly as Reimold misplayed a ball hit by Logan Forsythe in the top of the 10th inning, allowing Ben Zobrist to move from first to third base. Zobrist scored the winning run when the next batter, Evan Longoria, hit a single to left field off reliever Sergio Santos, freshly recalled from triple-A Buffalo on Saturday. After the game, Reimold took full responsibility for the error. "I saw (Zobrist) take off ... I was thinking about throwing him out before I caught the ball and it was completely my fault," he said. "That plays got to be made." Longoria drove in both runs for the Rays (64-66), who played to 10 innings for the second time in as many days at Rogers Centre after losing 5-4 on Saturday afternoon. Brad Boxberger pitched the bottom of the 10th for the save, Jake McGee (4-1) threw two scoreless innings of relief for the win and starting pitcher Chris Archer racked up six strikeouts through seven innings with six hits, one walk and one run. Drew Hutchison threw six strong innings for Toronto (64-64), giving up one run in the first inning before settling down. He struck out seven, walked two and gave up six hits in the no-decision. Aaron Loup, Dustin McGowan, Casey Janssen and Brett Cecil combined on three scoreless frames, though Janssen gave up back-to-back singles and a sacrifice bunt to start the ninth. Dioner Navarro had two hits for Toronto (66-64) while Juan Francisco picked up an RBI on a sacrifice fly. Bautistas ejection was the fifth for a Blue Jay this season, and first for a player. Following the game, the Toronto slugger refused to divulge any details about his conversation with Welke. "Doesnt matter what I think," Bautista said when asked about the location of the strikeout pitch. "The only thing that matters is what (Welke) thinks and he made the call." Bautista did admit that not arguing the call would have served the team better, however, especially in a one-run game. "At any point in the game it would have been wiser (to leave the call alone)," Bautista said. "What Im sure I said, I dont feel was warranting that (ejection) happening. But if you want to get the details you can go ask him (Welke)." With the strikeout, Bautista failed to reach base for the third straight game. The last time he was held off base for that long was a three-game span in April 2012. Asked how much of his recent slump had to do with him arguing with the umpire, Bautista replied, "Zero." The Blue Jays threatened to tie the game in the bottom of the 10th as Francisco led off the inning with a single, advanced to second on an error to James Loney and moved to third on a bunt base hit from Munenori Kawasaki. But Jose Reyes fouled out, Melky Cabrera popped out and Reimold struck out to end the game. "Its kind of easy to just give up in that situation and say theyre going to at least score one run, well play for the tie," Longoria said of the runners on first and third with nobody out in the bottom of the 10th. "Boxberger did a great job making his pitches right there. Its good to come out on top of that one." Santos -- who was pitching in his first major league game since July 12 -- was saddled with the loss after walking Zobrist ahead of Reimolds error. The run he allowed was unearned. The Rays got on the board in the first inning when Longoria grounded into a force-out, allowing Zobrist to score from third base. Toronto finally got to Archer in the seventh inning, tying the game 1-1 on a sacrifice fly from Francisco that scored Navarro. Both teams had plenty of chances to cash in more runs as Tampa left 10 on base while Toronto stranded eight. The Rays best scoring chance came in the top of the ninth when Wil Myers and Yunel Escobar hit back-to-back singles off Janssen with nobody out. Janssens day ended after the next batter, Curt Casali, hit a sac bunt to advance the runners 90 feet. Cecil struck out the next two batters to end the inning, offering an emphatic fist pump as he walked off the field. "Hes definitely struggling a bit now," Gibbons said of Janssen. "His game is location and hes definitely off with that. Hes given up lots of hits and hes scuffling right now. "Hopefully its just a minor adjustment ... They all go through struggles like that so its probably just a little minor thing to get him back on track." One of Torontos best chances to score came in the bottom of the fifth. Navarro reached on a lead-off single and moved to third on a one-out double down the first-base line from Francisco. After a ground out from Kawasaki, Reyes flied out to centre field to end the inning. NOTES: Attendance was announced at 38,869. ...

Bob Gainey Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings and guard Jimmer Fredette have completed a buyout of his contract, clearing the way for the former BYU sensation to become a free agent.HAMILTON - Bo Levi Mitchell and the Calgary Stampeders continued their winning ways against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Mitchell had a TD pass and ran for another as Calgary defeated Hamilton 30-20 on Saturday afternoon for its sixth straight win and 10th in 11 games versus the Ticats. But a timely injury and boost from the defence helped the Stamps regain a share of top spot in the West Division. Drew Tates three-yard TD run with 33 seconds remaining cemented the Calgary win, to the dismay of the Ron Joyce Stadium gathering of 6,500 that was energized by a spirited Hamilton comeback. Tates touchdown was set by a Jamar Wall interception of Ticats quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who had replaced injured starter Dan LeFevour. "Thats the kind of defence they are, bend but dont break," Mitchell said. "They give us the ball in good field position all the time. "For them to come up and make a huge play at the end to win it and not put it all on the offence to make the play was great." But LeFevours departure was as big as Walls interception. LeFevour pulled Hamilton to within 20-17 just 16 seconds into the fourth with a 21-yard TD strike to Bakari Grant. But he suffered a suspected left knee injury while scrambling and it was Masoli who came on after Rene Paredes 38-yard field goal at 5:11 boosted Calgarys lead to 23-17. Justin Medlocks 32-yard field goal at 9:11 made it a three-point game. LeFevour finished 21-of-30 passing for 282 yards and two TDs while adding 42 yards rushing. Masoli completed 7-of-10 attempts for 68 yards with the costly interception. "Obviously the game shifted when they had to make a quarterback change," Calgary head coach/GM John Hufnagel said. "I dont have an official update (on LeFevour) so I dont want to speculate," Ticats head coach/GM Kent Austin said. "It doesnt look good but well see. "The guys are frustrated. They play hard but weve got to play clean especially early in the game. Were digging too big of holes right now that were trying to overcome. Were not a good enough football team to overcome a deficit like that right now." Mitchell was a workmanlike 19-of-27 passing for 271 yards while adding 33 yards rushing on four carries. But the units workhorse was Hugh Charles, who ran for 102 yards on 14 carries in his first start with Calgary. Charles is the Stamps fifth different tailback this season after injuries to Canadians Jon Cornish and Matt Walter and internationals Jock Sanders and Martell Mallett. "Man, I love watching him play," Mitchell said of Charles. "Hughs one of those guys when he sees it he hits it running and hes fast. "He was a huge factor in the win." Calgary (6-1) moved into a tie with the Edmonton Eskimos (6-1) atop thee West Division on a wet, blustery afternoon.dddddddddddd Hamilton (1-6) suffered its third straight loss and dropped to 0-6 versus West Division teams. Its lone victory was a 33-23 home decision over Ottawa on July 26. After the game, Hamiltons dressing room door stayed closed longer than normal because of a players/coaches meeting. The Ticats are off until Sept. 1 when they host arch-rival Toronto at Tim Hortons Field and defensive lineman Brian Bulcke said the theme of the meeting was very simple. "No eyes down," he said. "Everyone is looking to come back after the bye week and its a brand new season for us coming into Tim Hortons Field and were going to act like it. "Conditioning and mental discipline, those two things will be corrected." Bulcke said losing LeFevour is a huge setback but something the youthful Ticats can rally around and learn from. "That was brutal," he said. "But were a young team so adversity is great for us." Jeff Fuller had Calgarys other touchdown. Paredes booted the converts and three field goals. Erik Harris scored Hamiltons other touchdown. Medlock kicked the converts and two field goals. Mitchell wasted little time staking Calgary to a 17-7 half-time lead, hitting Fuller on a six-yard TD strike at 11:50 of the second after a 74-yard completion to West put the Stampeders at the Hamilton six-yard line. It came after Medlock missed from 47 yards kicking into a brisk wind that the visitors took out to their 30-yard line. It was a wide-open first half, with both offences moving the ball, combining for 506 total yards (263 for Calgary, 243 for Hamilton). Mitchell was 14-of-19 passing for 202 yards and a TD while LeFevour finished 14-of-21 for 194 yards with a touchdown and interceptions.
