DUNEDIN, Fla. Russell Westbrook Jersey . -- Jose Bautista kept up his torrid start to the spring, hitting two doubles and driving in two runs Thursday that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5. A day after hitting a long home run against the Phillies in his first at-bat of exhibition play, Bautista had an RBI double in the first inning off Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee. Bautista finished 2 for 2 with a walk. The former two-time major league homer champion missed the final six weeks last year because of a hip injury. Jose Reyes, Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera also drove in runs for Toronto. "I thought we swung the bats pretty good," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Gibbons liked how many of Torontos hits were up the middle or to the opposite field. "Against a lot of lefties and things like that, you have to be able to do that and I think it was progress for us," he said. Lee allowed two hits and a run in two innings. He struck out three and walked none. "Obviously Im trying to throw strikes," Lee said. "I made a couple mistakes. The first double was, for sure, a mistake. I tried to throw a backdoor cutter and it ended up right down the middle." "And then Bautista, I just missed on the pitch before and tried to throw the same pitch. It wasnt a bad one, its just you get into a 2-2 count with him in that situation is not where you want to be. He put a good swing on it." Philadelphias offence was powered by a pair of home runs from bench hopefuls: Darin Ruf hit a two-run shot in the third and John Mayberry Jr. had a solo drive in the sixth. Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey allowed one unearned run in two innings. He gave up two hits, two walks and struck out two. STARTING TIME Phillies: Lee gave up doubles to two of the first three batters he faced, then stopped the Blue Jays. He is the odds-on favourite to start on opening day March 31 at Texas. Blue Jays: Dickey got through an uneasy first inning to feel good about his spring debut. The knuckleballer walked back-to-back batters with one out in his opening inning. "Im feeling a lot better than I was at this point last year, so Im hoping that will carry out through the rest of spring and opening day," Dickey said. RUF RIDER Ruf hit a long home run off Esmil Rogers with one on and no one out in the third inning. The shot was the first for any Phillies player this spring. Ruf finished 1 for 3 with a walk. KNUCKLED Dickey worked with new battery partner Erik Kratz for the first time this spring. Kratz, a catcher acquired from the Phillies in a trade this winter, wore a first basemans glove in an attempt to have a better chance at catching Dickeys arsenal of knuckleballs. Kratz allowed one passed ball in the games first inning. "Its a hard thing to do," Dickey said. "The game speed, and runners on -- its just going to take some time. But I felt like he looked real comfortable back there. Outside of the one passed ball, I felt like he handled it pretty well." TRAINERS ROOM Philadelphia right-handed reliever Mike Adams threw off the mound for the first time since undergoing shoulder surgery on July 31. He was limited to 28 games in his first season after signing a two-year, $12 million free agent deal with the Phillies. The veteran setup reliever hopes to join the Phillies bullpen at some point in April. "It went good -- really good," he said. "It was probably an 85 per cent bullpen or so. I wasnt trying to let loose right off the bat. I was trying to get a good feel for throwing off the slope again." Philadelphia right-hander Ethan Martin, who entered camp competing for the fifth starters job, left after facing four batters in the fifth inning with shoulder discomfort. Hell be examined by the team medical staff on Friday morning. "He was pain-free pitching, but the ball just wasnt coming out, throwing 85 miles per hour," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "That was a sign for me to go out and see what was going on." Enes Kanter Jersey .

Chiasson snapped a third-period tie and lifted the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory on Monday night.LOS ANGELES -- The estranged wife of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling will fight to retain her 50 per cent ownership stake in the team, her lawyer said Thursday, adding an unwanted twist to the NBAs plan to force new ownership on the franchise. Shelly Sterlings attorney, Pierce ODonnell, said his client "will not agree to a forced or involuntary seizure of her interest." "As her lawyers we will fight vigorously to defend her property rights," he said. ODonnell said Mrs. Sterling has no interest in managing the Clippers and wants a new investor group to come in with a professional management team. ODonnell also told The Associated Press that Shelly Sterling has been separated from her husband for the last year and is considering divorce. There is no record of legal separation documents being filed, though ODonnell said the couple is living apart. Last week, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Donald Sterling from the NBA for life and urged league owners to force him to sell the team. The move came after a recording surfaced in which Sterling made racist comments, telling friend V. Stiviano that he didnt want her to bring black people to Clippers games. At a news conference announcing the decision, Silver said no decision had been made regarding whether Mrs. Sterling or any other Sterling family member will be allowed to retain an ownership position. ODonnell said he spoke with NBA officials Thursday morning but declined to elaborate. He said Mrs. Sterling has been working co-operatively with Silver and his staff and supported his announcement seeking a new chief executive officer for the team and the NBAs decision to place longtime team President Andy Roeser on leave. NBA spokesman Mike Bass said the league wouldnt comment on its discussions. ODonnell said Mrs. Sterling "abhors" her husbands comments and that "the Sterlings may share the same last name, but she does not share his values on race." The Sterlings have been married 57 years, ODonnell said. Patrick Patterson Jersey. "We abhor guilt by association in America," ODonnell said. "The sins of the husband cannot be imputed to the wife or children." Shelly and Donald Sterling faced allegations that they discriminated against tenants based on race in Los Angeles according to a lawsuit filed by U.S. Department of Justice in 2006. The Sterlings, who at the time owned and managed about 119 apartment buildings or 5,000 apartments throughout Los Angeles County, agreed to settle the suit for $2.725 million. The settlement also included two suits filed by former tenants at one of the properties, including an African-American family and an interracial married couple with biracial children, who alleged the Sterlings demolished their private yards among other actions because of their race, according to the Justice Department. "The charges against her by former tenants are false, unfounded and were never ever determined to be valid in a court of law," ODonnell said. He said the case was settled without any admission of liability. "She doesnt have a racist bone in her body," ODonnell said. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Thursday at the teams training facility that "it would be a very hard situation" if Mrs. Sterling retained her portion of ownership in the team. "I guarantee you every person wouldnt be on board with that," Rivers said. "Whether I would or not, Im not going to say." ODonnell said Mrs. Sterling hasnt been asked to stay away from games and will not. She is an ardent Clippers fan and plans to attend Friday nights playoff game against Oklahoma City. Rivers said "thats her choice. She can be a ticket buyer or whatever." Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA All-Star guard who was asked to serve as a spokesman for NBA players after the Sterling scandal broke, didnt immediately return a call seeking comment.
