HOUSTON -- Ask his manager, and its been Brett Oberholtzers confidence and maturity that has made a difference for him on the mound. On Saturday night, Oberholtzer had two other things going for him -- aggressive base running and hard hitting by his Houston Astros teammates. Jon Singleton wound up with an inside-the-park home run after a call was reversed on video replay, and Chris Carter and Jason Castro also homered as the Astros beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2. Oberholtzer pitched seven strong innings, and Jose Altuve scored the go-ahead run on consecutive throwing errors by Toronto. "Great all-around team win," Oberholtzer said. "It was fun to be part of and to watch. Arguably one of the better games weve played all around." Singleton drove in L.J. Hoes in the eighth inning before getting called out on the tag at home plate. The Astros appealed the call and had it reversed upon review. "I turned the burners on. I said I got to go," Singleton said of seeing the ball bounce off the wall in centre field as Torontos Anthony Gose slipped on the turf. "I just kept running." The Astros have homered in nine consecutive games. They led the American League in home runs in July with 32. Oberholtzer (4-7) gave up two runs and six hits while striking out five and walking one to win his second consecutive start. He retired his last 10 batters. "To see him be able to not only make those pitches but make them with confidence, lets me know that he has taken a huge step forward as a major leaguer," Astros manager Bo Porter said. R.A. Dickey (9-11) was tagged for five runs and nine hits over seven-plus innings. He struck out three. It was Dickeys first loss since July 18 after winning his previous two starts. Nolan Reimould and Jose Bautista drove in a run each for the Blue Jays, who left seven on base and were 1 for 6 with runners in scoring position. Altuve scored the tiebreaking run in the fifth. He singled on a line drive to centre. He bolted toward second and third after a botched pickoff attempt by Dickey and came home after third baseman Steve Tolleson failed to secure Danny Valencias errant throw. "Thats a base stealer," Dickey said of Altuve. "I am trying to pick him off. Unfortunately, the throw was up the line just a tad." Carter homered off Dickey later in the fifth. Castro hit a two-run homer off reliever Brett Cecil in the eighth inning. Hoes followed with a single before Singleton hit his 10th homer of the season off a deep fly ball to centre. "Today was one of those days we can definitely build off of and remember," Singleton said. "We all played well. We made plays on defence and offence." STRONG DEBUT Astros right-hander Mike Foltynewicz made his major league debut, pitching 2-3 of an inning and striking out Bautista. "It was an unbelievable feeling," Foltynewicz said. "They called down in the seventh inning and said Youve got the eighth, and the heart went into my stomach." He left to loud applause after treating fans to pitches in the high 90s. GREAT OUTDOORS Fans in attendance at Minute Maid Park were treated to a rare experience -- outdoor baseball in Houston in August. The game was the first since 2004 to be played with the roof open in August. Dickey said the open roof did affect his knuckleball. "It was hot and humid, but I was fine," he said. "I had a fine knuckleball." TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: Infielder Brett Lawrie (broken right index finger) continued his rehab assignment with Class-A Dunedin on Saturday night, playing third base. Lawrie fractured the finger June 22. He began his assignment Friday. Astros: Infielder Marwin Gonzalez (right hamstring) is expected to see action Sunday for the first time since July 29. With the Astros having a day off Monday, Porter decided to give Gonzalez an extra day. "He could have played today," he said. . Jesus Guzman, who left Fridays game with back spasms, underwent chest X-rays, which came back negative. Porter said Guzman will undergo more tests in the coming days. ON DECK Blue Jays rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman (7-2, 3.03) looks to continue his hot streak Sunday, opposite right-hander Scott Feldman (4-8, 4.39 ERA), who aims for his first win since June 29. Stroman has won his last three starts, allowing just one run in that span. Yeezy 350 Wholesale . Stepanek gave the Czech Republic its second straight Davis Cup title Sunday, sweeping past Dusan Lajovic in straight sets in the fifth and decisive match to secure a 3-2 win over Serbia in the final. Yeezy 350 Discount .com) - Intrastate rivals collide Saturday as the Texas State Bobcats hit the road to take on the eighth-ranked Texas Longhorns in a non-conference battle at Frank Erwin Center. Scrivens stopped 48 shots and captain Andrew Ference scored in overtime as the Oilers pulled off a 4-3 upset of the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. Yeezy 350 Replica . Ronaldo netted his 14th goal of the season in Europes top competition to give Madrid a clear advantage ahead of next weeks quarterfinal return leg in Germany.

Yeezy 350 Outlet . -- During Kansas shootaround on Wednesday before the Jayhawks faced Oklahoma, coach Bill Self told Wayne Selden Jr.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ben Brust and his Wisconsin teammates got oodles of open shots while they sliced and diced Baylors vaunted zone defence. When the Bears had the ball, 7-foot Frank Kaminsky always seemed to be right in their way. Brust, Kaminsky and their Badgers realize they dominated Baylor in a 69-52 victory Thursday night because of a coach who always puts them in the right spots. Bo Ryan has never been to college basketballs final weekend, but the Badgers are thrilled to put him on the brink. "That would be a very special thing to do, but we also know that hes not going to let us look too far ahead," said Brust, who scored 14 points. "When that time comes, well handle it. Id definitely like to do that for him." Kaminsky scored 19 points and blocked six shots while Wisconsin romped into the West Regional final, reaching the final eight for the third time in school history. Brust hit three of the six 3-pointers from the second-seeded Badgers (29-7), who jumped to a 14-point lead in the first half and never let up on the overmatched Bears (26-12). Kaminsky and his disciplined teammates shredded the Baylor zone that played so well in the first two games. Wisconsin also methodically shut down Baylors talented offence while moving into its second regional final in 13 years under Ryan, who has seen just about everything except the Final Four in a 700-win coaching career. "Id be honoured to be a part of that," Kaminsky said. Wisconsin advanced to the regional final Saturday against top-seeded Arizona, which held off San Diego State 70-64 in the late game at Honda Center. The Badgers havent been to the Final Four since retired coach Dick Bennett got them there in 2000. The Badgers advanced by countering everything the Bears do well. Wisconsin wrecked Baylors zone, negated their 3-point shooting acumen with perimeter defence, kept the tempo at the Badgers preferred speed and even held a 39-33 rebounding edge on Baylor, one of the nations top rebounding teams. Ryan put on a bit of a coaching clinic, but thats nothing new. The Wisconsin folk hero has led the Badgers to an NCAA tournament berths in each of his 13 seasons, but only got this close to the Final Four in 2005. "We get 40 more minutes, and Im awfully proud of them,," Ryan said.dddddddddddd Kaminsky added another remarkable performance to his junior season with the Badgers, racking up 10 points and four blocked shots while Wisconsin took a 29-16 lead into halftime. Wisconsin held Baylor to a season-low in first-half points. Cory Jefferson scored 15 points for the sixth-seeded Bears in their third Sweet 16 trip in five years. Isaiah Austin and Montreals Kenny Chery scored 12 points apiece for Baylor. The Bears needed a late rally just to match their lowest-scoring performance of the season in the final seconds. "Wisconsin really played a great game, and we did a very poor job in making things tough," said Baylor coach Scott Drew, who still led his team to a strong finish after its 2-8 start to Big 12 play. "Theyre extremely hard to pressure and rattle. ... Once we got behind, we had to do some things we wished we didnt have to do." Three lower-bowl sections of the Anaheim Ducks home arena were packed with red-clad Badgers fans, who usually turn out in droves for their schools trips to Southern California, including three straight recent trips to the Rose Bowl. They had plenty of time to celebrate while their Badgers quickly sapped all of the drama out of these schools first meeting. Baylors flexible zone defence caused numerous problems for Nebraska and Creighton in the Bears victories last week. With a few days to prepare, Ryan clearly figured out exactly how to attack it. The Badgers got multiple open looks on nearly every possession in the first half, moving the ball around the perimeter for open 3-point attempts or getting it down low to Kaminsky, who scored eight of Wisconsins first 10 points. Brust hit two 3-pointers in the first half, and only a few open misses prevented Wisconsin from blowing it open early. On the other end, the Bears had little of the poise they showed in their first two games. Baylor missed 12 of its first 15 shots and fell behind by 14 late in the half. Baylor finally abandoned the zone early in the second half, but Traevon Jackson hit a 3-pointer for Wisconsin on the next possession. The Bears showed their athleticism and skill with several one-man drives to the hoop in the second half, but the Badgers calmly stuck to their plan in a blowout win. ' ' '
