ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays had a difficult decision to make: What was more encouraging, Canadian Erik Bedards performance or the offences breakout night? Bedard, from Ottawa, gave up one hit in seven scoreless innings and the Rays had 10 hits in a 7-1 victory Saturday over the Cleveland Indians that broke a four-game skid. Winning his second straight start after 15 without a win, Bedard gave up a double to Ryan Raburn in the second inning, Clevelands only hit until Lonnie Chisenhall led off the ninth with a single off Grant Balfour. Just as refreshing for the Rays, who had lost six straight home games, was the offensive output led by James Loney, who had three hits and drove in two runs. The Rays had only 10 runs while losing the four preceding games on their homestand. "Tonight we came out ready to swing and it led to good things," said Matt Joyce, who drove in two runs with sacrifice flies. "We have some great players here. Obviously, this year hasnt gone the way we wanted so far and it was a rough week for us, but weve still got a little ways to go." Bedard (2-1) is the only Rays starter to go six innings over the teams last seven games. Manager Joe Maddon "was tinkering with the idea" of sending him for a seventh before calling for Juan Carlos Oviedo, who followed with two perfect innings. "I had probably 10 pitches left," said Bedard, who has allowed one run or less in three straight starts for the first time since 2008. "Im always a slow starter so the first couple were rough, but after that you just get in the groove of things and throw strikes." Bedard got nine of his outs on flyballs. "He just really mixed and matched angles, speeds, everything," said Cleveland manager Terry Francona. "(Raburn) hit the line drive double, but other than that, there was a lot of lazy flyballs. Kind of exactly what he wants you to do." Zach McAllister (3-3) gave up eight hits and five runs in 4 1-3 innings for the Indians, who had won four straight. David DeJesus drove in Tampa Bays first run with a two-out single in the third. The Rays made it 3-0 in the fourth when Loneys first hit was followed by Wil Myers double and the first of Joyces sacrifice flies. Yunel Escobar drove in the second run with a two-out single. Ben Zobrist had two hits and scored twice for the Rays, who had lost six straight home games. NOTES: John Axford is out as the Indians closer, Francona announced before the game. A group of four relievers that includes Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw could all get opportunities to fill the role. ... Rays RHP Alex Cobb, who has been on the DL since April 13 with a left oblique strain, is likely to pitch in a simulated game Monday in Port Charlotte, Florida, then make a rehab start five days later. Cobb hopes to pitch for the Rays by the end of the May. ... Indians CF Michael Bourn, as expected, was rested. He played Thursday and Friday after missing three games with a tight left hamstring. ... Rays RHP Chris Archer (2-1) and Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (1-0) are Sundays scheduled starters. Colton Schmidt Jersey

Hamilton (6-8) hosts Ottawa (2-12) tonight tied with Toronto and Montreal atop the East Division. The Ticats, Argonauts and Alouettes also must consider that the B.C. Lions (8-7), currently fourth in the West, have a better record than the third-place Eastern squad and would cross over and assume the No. 3 playoff seed if that remained the case at the end of the regular season. Catch the action unfold on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5, and on TSN Radio 1200 at 7pm et/4pm pt. Toronto hosts Montreal at Rogers Centre on Saturday afternoon (TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 at 4pm et/1pm pt). Every game you play is a dangerous game and I dont buy that they (Redblacks) dont have anything to play for, Austin said Thursday. In fact, being out of the playoffs would give them a little bit more of a reason to do more and maybe to live a little bit on the edge more. Hamiltons first win of the season came against Ottawa — a 33-23 decision July 26 at McMaster Universitys Ron Joyce Stadium. Dan LeFevour started at quarterback for Hamilton as incumbent Zach Collaros was out with concussion-like symptoms. Hamilton was 1-6 when Collaros returned to the lineup and hes led the squad to five wins in seven games. The Ticats are also 4-0 at new Tim Hortons Field. However, Hamilton missed a glorious chance to take sole possession of first in the East last Friday when it relinquished a 17-point, third-quarter lead in Toronto, eventually dropping a heart-breaking 34-33 loss to the Argos. But defensive tackle Bryan Hall said thats all behind the Ticats now. I didnt sleep well at all (that night) and Im sure a lot of guys didnt either, said Hall, adding the coaches have been doing a great job of moving on. But Austin bristled when asked if the loss was a reality check for the Ticats after four straight victoriees.dddddddddddd This is not a complacent football team and we certainly werent in a position last week to be complacent, he said. We have fought hard. The players have fought hard and scratched and clawed their way back into this (playoff race) to give us an opportunity to make a stretch run and get in the playoffs and to hopefully perform well at that time. Ottawa quarterback Henry Burris will make a second return to Hamilton. He spent two years with the Ticats, leading them to a Grey Cup appearance last year before being released after Collaros was signed as a free agent. Burris subsequently joined the Redblacks. We know Henrys strengths and weaknesses, said Austin. He has more strengths than weaknesses, obviously. Theyre going to put together a plan that not only fits what he does well but also what they think will attack our defence, so, yes, we gameplan accordingly. But that being said, Ive always maintained the belief that its really your adjustments during the game that make the difference. Ottawa is looking to rebound from a 41-3 road loss to B.C. on Saturday night. The most important (thing) for us I think going into this week is the fact the guys are embarrassed and I think well see more spark, Burris said. Well see more passion, more hunger. Burris said the Redblacks are more concerned with finishing the year strong than playing the role of spoiler down the stretch. To win out here would be the perfect way to at least finish off with a good taste in our mouth and give us something to look forward to next year, he said. Hamilton will dress two new international running backs after losing Mossis Madu to a shoulder injury against Toronto. Madu was replacing injured tailback C.J. Gable. Delone Carter spent time in the NFL with Indianapolis and Jacksonville before signing with Hamilton on Oct. 7. Hell be joined in the backfield by rookie Sam Ojuri, who was signed in July and had been on the Ticats practice roster.
