WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers had a gangbusters start to the year but the season has been a plain bust since August. Now they must beat the B.C. Lions on Saturday to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Watch the Lions vs. Blue Bombers live tonight on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 at 7pm et/4pm pt. You can also listen to the game live on TSN Radio Vancouver 1040 starting at 4pm pt. One more Winnipeg loss and the Lions (8-7) are guaranteed to finish no worse than fourth in the CFL West, which could be enough for a crossover playoff spot depending on what happens in the East over the last three weeks of the season. I wasnt really thinking ahead but obviously I thought we were going to have more than six wins at this point, Bombers quarterback Drew Willy said of his expectations earlier this season. Starting so hot like that we had a lot of momentum and a lot of confidence. The Bombers were 5-1 at the end of July but theyve won only a single game since. That victory came back on Aug. 22, and Winnipeg has since dropped seven in a row to sit at 6-10. Even with a win, the Bombers still need help to pass the Lions and Toronto Argonauts. But at least they would be able to go into another must-win game Nov. 1 against the league-leading Calgary Stampeders with a purpose. Clearly, 25 or 26 hours from now its the biggest game for them and us, said Lions coach Mike Benevides. The Bombers beat the Lions 23-6 in Week 5 but the Lions earned a 26-9 victory in Week 12. Benevides said their running game worked better in the second game but its just guys making plays. We missed a few opportunities and we also turned the ball over in that first game, he said. Kevin Glenn was originally tabbed to be the Lions backup quarterback but je has led the Lions for most of the year with Travis Lulay out due to injury. Glenn said the Lions arent focused on the various post-season permutations at this point. It just so happens that if we win this game theyre out of the playoffs and were in, said Glenn. But if it wasnt that situation I think guys would still have motivation to come out and win because its the end of the season and you have to be playing your best football in order to ... win in the playoffs and get to the Grey Cup. One key to success Saturday for the Bombers may be their ground game. They will be going with running back Paris Cotton again, who managed 108 yards in last Saturdays 33-23 loss to the Stampeders. Willy has been vulnerable to the rush of late and the team has been among the league leaders in sacks allowed. The Bombers improved in that area last week and Cotton said they need to keep it up. We gained some confidence last week and we just want to build off it this week, keep our quarterback healthy and keep our ground game going, he said. Cotton took over from Nic Grigsby, who asked for and received his release after being told he would be used in a backup role. Grigsby was later picked up by Hamilton. But the teams defence also has to be able to contain B.C.s ground game, something the Bombers have struggled to do consistently. The Bombers are just 3-5 at home this season despite having one of the louder stadiums in the CFL. We havent taken advantage of (home field) like we should have this year, said coach Mike OShea. More than that, we havent given our fans what they truly deserve. They certainly deserve more. Notes: The Bombers have cut Canadian offensive lineman Paul Swiston. OShea said frequent injuries kept setting him back. Swiston was drafted by Winnipeg in 2011. Boston Celtics Store . - Kentucky freshmen Stanley Boom Williams, Dorian Baker, Drew Barker and Tymere Dubose have been charged with disorderly conduct for their involvement with air pistol shots being fired near a residence hall on the South campus Sunday night.

TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista will likely miss a few days with a mild hamstring strain but is not expected to go on the disabled list. The all-star right-fielder had an MRI exam done Monday after leaving Sundays game in Cincinnati. "Its definitely some of the best news I could have gotten," Bautista said. "I could have got the news of a torn hamstring or a higher-grade strain. But its the lowest grade strain that there could be -- grade one -- so its day by day." Bautista said theres a "really good chance" he wont have to go on the DL and added he might even be able to return during Torontos three-game series against the New York Yankees, which began Monday night at Rogers Centre. "Im not saying a start but a pinch-hit at-bat here or there, thats a possibility," he said. The Blue Jays have led the American League East standings for the last month but they won just three games on their recent 10-game road trip. Entering play Monday, Toronto had a 1 1/2-game lead on New York and the Baltimore Orioles. Toronto lost another key player over the weekend as infielder Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., will miss three to six weeks with a fractured right index finger. The Blue Jays placed him on the 15-day DL on Monday and recalled outfielders Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar from triple-A Buffalo. "We need the two extra outfielders to cover while Jose is out," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "When he comes back, I dont necessarily think we need two. But for the time being, we do." "Its an opportunity for somebody," Gibbons added. "Thats what it comes down to." Lawrie is batting .244 this season with 12 homers and 38 RBIs. The Blue Jays also optioned catcher Erik Kratz to the Bisons on Monday. Bautista is enjoying another strong season with a .305 average, 15 home runs and 49 RBIs in 77 games. His defensive play has been excellent and he leads all major-league players in fan voting for the July 15 all-star game in Minnesota. He suffered the injury while trying to leg out a single in the Blue Jays 4-3 loss to the Reds. "I was running down to first and I extended my leg to step on the bag and I justt felt a little sharp pain," Bautista said.dddddddddddd "The usual feeling when you strain a muscle. Ive been there before so I knew what was going on. I had a good idea at least. I just didnt know how bad it was. "I knew I could have made it worse by staying in the game so I came out." Gibbons was unable to provide a specific return date but was relieved it didnt appear to be a serious injury. "Hopefully just a couple days," he said. "Well see." The Blue Jays opened June with five straight wins but have gone 4-11 since, entering the series opener against the Yankees. The timing of the injuries and the recent slide have not helped ease concerns from a jittery fanbase that the teams rare first-place run could soon come to an end, especially with New York and Baltimore now so close in the standings. "I dont think it should be blown out of proportion," Bautista said. "I think we have capable guys that can fill in on a short-term basis and hopefully do a great job. "Certainly the other guys that are in the lineup that are still regulars, they are plenty good to carry the offence and the team on the field. So I wouldnt blow it out of proportion." At the end of his five-minute pre-game availability, Bautista was asked what hed say to the portion of the fanbase who believes the teams strong play last month was an aberration, and that the results from the last two weeks are more the expected norm. "Well good for them," he said. "I dont have to defend ourselves. If they want to root for the Yankees or the Red Sox, be my guest. They shouldnt be Jays fans if thats how they feel. Thats my opinion." Torontos lineup card for the opener of the three-game series against the Yankees had a different look. Designated hitter Adam Lind moved into Bautistas No. 3 slot, batting behind shortstop Jose Reyes and left-fielder Melky Cabrera. First baseman Edwin Encarnacion remained in the cleanup spot and centre-fielder Colby Rasmus batted fifth and catcher Dioner Navarro was in the No. 6 spot. Third baseman Juan Francisco batted seventh, ahead of second baseman Munenori Kawasaki and right-fielder Gose. ' ' '
