TORONTO -- Five games. Eight runs. Two shutout losses.A power-laden Toronto Blue Jays lineup fizzled against Cleveland, finishing off a five-game AL Championship Series wipeout with a 3-0 loss Wednesday.Bidding to return to the World Series for the first time since 1993, the Blue Jays lost in the ALCS for the second straight year, following last years six-game defeat against eventual champion Kansas City. Toronto was held to six hits by rookie Ryan Merritt and three relievers in the Indians second shutout of the ALCS.We never really had a big inning, never were able to really string some hits together and get a rally going, Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin said. You can point the finger at us and say we didnt do a good job, or you can point the finger at those guys. To get us out, you have to pitch well. You have to, and they did.No Cleveland pitcher was tougher than ALCS MVP Andrew Miller, who struck out 13 in 7 2/3 scoreless innings.Its not easy to go through lineups like this, Miller said. Still, the lefty sure made it look simple against the Blue Jays, who struck out 50 times over the five games.An offense led by Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki produced seven extra-base hits in the series -- three doubles, two triples and two solo home runs. The Blue Jays hit just .201; Cleveland was even worse at .168.Im sure there will be some disappointments and grumbling and complaining about how you fell short again, but thats not coming from me, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. I know what these guys did, and I think its a pretty good accomplishment. The key is we want to take that next step one of these days. Hopefully its next year.Bautista , who turned 36 Wednesday, and the 33-year-old Encarnacion may have been playing for the Blue Jays for the final time. Both are eligible for free agency, a subject neither wanted to address in a somber clubhouse.I dont think its the right time to be taking about that, Bautista said. We just battled through a tough series. I dont want to make this about myself, and I dont really feel like Im in the proper state of mind to be taking about that. I know its a possibility but well see what happens.Gibbons said his two sluggers helped put this team back on the map after Toronto went 22 years between postseason appearances.We were staring at a playoff drought for a lot of years around here, Gibbons said. And they came through for the team last year, the organization, and then repeated it this year. And they really -- both of them -- made their name here in Toronto.Toronto slugged past Baltimore in the wild card game, winning on Encarnacions 11th-inning home run. The Blue Jays swept Texas in the Division Series, outhomering the Rangers 8-2 and outscoring them 22-10.Bautistas two hits in the finale left him 3 for 18 (.167) with no RBI in the series, while Encarnacion was 4 for 19 (.211) and drove in two runs. Tulowitzki was 2 for 18 (.111) with no RBI and Donaldson 6 for 18 (.333) with two RBI.I know that Im capable of doing a lot more, Bautista said. They pitched great. It was tough. They seemed to make the right pitches at the right time and got us out.Martin, who chased Merritt with a one-out bloop single in the fifth and advanced on pinch-hitter Michael Saunderss hit, was Torontos only runner to reach scoring position. Reliever Bryan Shaw fanned Ezequiel Carrera and Kevin Pillar.Torontos offensive funk was remarkable given the shaky state of Clevelands starting pitching. Carlos Carrasco (broken hand) and Danny Salazar (forearm) have missed the entire postseason, and right-hander Trevor Bauer left Game 3 after four batters when blood began dripping from his right pinkie, sliced open last week while he repaired a drone.The Blue Jays hit .120 (3 for 25) with runners in scoring position.They never let us string base hits together, Bautista said, and when we had men in scoring position they seemed to turn it up a notch and go to another level of execution. Nolan Ryan Jersey . Breaking three of his own world records on his way to winning in Paris, Chan silenced the critics and left the audiences standing in appreciation and awe. Craig Biggio Jersey . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. http://www.baseballastrosproshop.com/gerrit-cole-astros-jersey/ . Rinne played two periods in his first game since left hip surgery in early May. Gabriel Bourque scored 3:07 into the second period and Austin Watson tallied 5:15 later for Nashville. Roy Oswalt Jersey . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. Carlos Correa Jersey . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y -- Haveyougoneaway has come a long way in a short period of time.Haveyougoneaway came to Saratoga the winner of multiple listed stakes, but shell leave here a multiple graded winner after upsetting the Grade 1, $500,000 Ballerina Saturday at Saratoga.The recipient of a patient ride from John Velazquez, Haveyougoneaway rallied four wide down the lane to outfinish By the Moon by a half-length in the seven-furlong Ballerina for fillies and mares. It was another length back to Carina Mia, the even-money favorite, in third.The win gave trainer Tom Morley his first Grade 1 victory and earned the New York-bred Haveyougoneaway a fees-paid berth into the Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint on Nov. 5 at Santa Anita.Means everything - its the Ballerina, Morley said of winning his first Grade 1. It doesnt get much better than this - Travers Day and were here in Saratoga.Though Kendrick Carmouche had ridden Haveyougoneaway to a pair of stakes victories, including a neck score in the Grade 2 Honorable Miss here on July 27, the decision was made to switch to the Hall of Famer Velazquez for this Grade 1 attempt.Decision was made between the team, said Morley, who trains Haveyougoneaway for Gary Barber and Sequel Racing. Johnnys been there, done that, he was available. Take nothing away from Kendrick - he gave her two absolutely smashing rides.Velazzquez had Haveyougoneaway in fourth position, only about two lengths off a modest early pace that had Sarah Sis, Carina Mia and Paulassilverlining heads apart through an opening quarter of 23.dddddddddddd39 seconds.Carina Mia, under Joel Rosario, took a short lead with a half-mile to run but she couldnt shake Paulassilverlining until mid-stretch.Meanwhile, Javier Castellano made an early move on By the Moon while Velazquez waited slightly longer on Haveyougoneaway, who came four to five wide into the stretch.With Carina Mia drifting out, Paulassilverlining had the lead at the eighth pole. By the Moon rallied between a straightened-out Carina Mia and Paulassilverlining, while Haveyougoneaway kept coming down the center of the track to get up.I was right there, so I knew they were going slow, Velazquez said. I got to the half-mile pole, they spread out, I said, Thats good. Javier got into a spot. I didnt want to get involved in that. I wanted to wait until the quarter pole and let her finish from there, and it worked out good.Haveyougoneaway, a daughter of Congrats, covered the seven furlongs in 1:21.63 and returned $22.Having had three races in eight weeks, Haveyougoneaway may simply train up to the Breeders Cup, Morley said.
