(Sports Network) - CC Sabathia aims to continue his success against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, but hell have a new catcher after a tough Friday night for the New York Yankees. Nike Air Max 90 Damen Schwarz . Francisco Cervelli has served as the catcher for Sabathia all season, but Cervelli broke his right hand in the opener and will miss at least six weeks. Sabathia, who will instead pitch to Austin Romine or Chris Stewart Saturday, holds a 13-4 mark with a 2.98 ERA in 18 career games against Toronto. The lefty is coming off a 5-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Monday when he allowed seven hits and five runs over seven innings. The Blue Jays counter with southpaw J.A. Happ, who is 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA in three lifetime games against the Yankees. Happ didnt get a decision over six innings in a game at Baltimore on Monday. Last night, David Phelps threw four strong innings in relief of an ailing Ivan Nova, and the Yankees overcame the Blue Jays for a 6-4 win. Phelps (1-1) racked up a career-best nine strikeouts while limiting the Blue Jays to one run on two hits after taking over for Nova, who was removed with none out in the top of the third inning with pain in his right elbow. Mariano Rivera worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth to notch his eighth save of the season. Lyle Overbay came through with a tie-breaking RBI triple in the fourth and Brett Gardner tacked on a solo homer later on to help New York post its second straight win over slumping Toronto in the first two tests of this four-game set. Vernon Wells added a pair of hits and an RBI in three at-bats to the triumph. The victory came with a cost, however, as Cervelli fractured his hand when being struck by a foul tip by Torontos Rajai Davis, the games leadoff hitter. The team said afterward that he will require surgery. "I dont think teams are going to care if we have injuries or not, theyre going to want to beat us," said Wells. "So we need to continue to go about our business. and thats playing good defense, having great starting pitching and just scoring enough runs when we need them." Nova was charged with two runs allowed on four hits in two-plus innings. The Blue Jays suffered their 16th defeat in their last 19 visits to Yankee Stadium despite a pair of solo homers from Edwin Encarnacion. Jose Bautista also had a solo shot in the setback, Torontos sixth in eight outings overall. Encarnacion has homered in four straight games. Brad Lincoln (0-1) was handed the loss after permitting two runs in one inning. Aaron Laffey, making an emergency start for an injured Josh Johnson, lasted just 2 2/3 frames and was reached for a pair of runs while walking five. "I lost my release point and couldnt get out front and stay on top of the ball," said Laffey. "I was just kind of all over the place. It didnt matter what I did, I just wasnt able to get the ball where I wanted it to go." The Yankees had gone 11-7 against the Jays last season and have won nine straight season series at home against them. Air Max 2013 Schuhe Herren . Looking to lead his team into the playoffs, Curry scored 30 points and the Warriors won easily for the second straight night, 93-72 over the struggling New Orleans Hornets on Monday. "This is a game that validates last night, how big a win that was for us to start the road trip," Curry said, alluding to Golden States 30-point victory at Houston on Sunday. Nike Air Max 95 Schuhe . The fate of Frank McCourts ownership is hanging in the balance after the popular franchise filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in a Delaware court on Monday, but the show must go on and the Dodgers will continue a three-game series in the Twin Cities this evening. . Capps deal, announced Thursday, includes a non-roster invitation to spring training. The 29-year-old right-hander has 138 career saves in 444 appearances for Pittsburgh, Washington and Minnesota. Air Max 95 Schuhe Damen . Rodney Stuckey scored 25 points and Greg Monroe added 18 points for the Pistons, who have not beaten Chicago since Dec. 23, 2008. The Bulls rallied from a 13-point deficit to tie the score 78-all with 9:27 remaining on Butlers dunk after a steal. Nike Air Max + 2013 Schuhe Schwarz . Footes familiar No. 52 jersey will be raised to the Pepsi Center rafters at a date still to be determined, where it will join those of Joe Sakic (19), Peter Forsberg (21), Patrick Roy (33) and Ray Bourque (77).He was bypassed in last weeks NFL draft, but McMaster Marauders star Ben DAguilar will have two chances to secure a contract south of the border. A CFL source requesting anonymity said Monday the six-foot-two, 240-pound defensive lineman has received invitations from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets to attend their rookie mini-camps. DAguilar will head to Tampa Bays camp, which starts Friday, and if he impresses enough to secure an NFL contract, hed then skip the Jets session. However, if a contract from Tampa Bay doesnt come, then DAguilar would attend the Jets camp the following weekend and try to secure a deal with them. DAguilar has worked out before NFL officials before. He participated in an NFL regional combine this off-season in Tampa before taking part in the NFL super regional event earlier this month in Irving, Tex., leading up to the leagues annual draft. DAguilar was a one-man wrecking crew last year with McMaster, posting a Canadian university-record 12.5 sacks. He added 28 tackles (26 solo) and a forced fumble to help McMaster make a second straight Vanier Cup appearance. That earned DAguilar the J.P. Metras Trophy as Canadian universitys top lineman, the first Marauder to win the award. The CFLs scouting bureau took notice, moving DAguilar up to No. 7 on its fiinal top-15 prospect list after making him No. Nike Air Max 2013 Schuhe Herren. 10 to start the season. The free-spirited DAguilar is a definite blue-chip talent for the CFL draft May 6 but would become a future selection if he signed an NFL deal beforehand. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats own the first pick of the 13 CFL draft but certainly have plenty to mull over regarding who to take first overall. Oregon linebacker Bo Lokombo finished atop the CFL scouting bureau rankings but will return to school this fall. Regina Rams defensive tackle Stefan Charles, the second-ranked player, signed as a free agent with Tennessee following the NFL draft, as did McMaster offensive lineman Matt Sewell (No. 4). Third-ranked defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh of the Calgary Dinos hasnt signed an NFL deal as of yet and made a serious pitch to be taken first overall in the CFL draft with an impressive performance at the leagues evaluation camp in March. Eastern Michigan offensive lineman Andy Mulumba, the fifth-ranked CFL draft prospect, has signed with the NFLs Green Bay Packers while No. 6 offensive lineman Nolan MacMillan is expected to return to Iowa this fall. Canadian C.O. Prime, an unranked linebacker at Wagner College whos also eligible for the 13 CFL draft, signed as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts. ' ' '
