ST. . MARYS, Ont. -- Tim Raines and George Bell were inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday along with Rob Ducey, Nat Bailey, Tom Cheek and Nat Bailey. Raines spent 13 years with the Montreal Expos. "My heart is there," Raines said about Montreal. "Im not really Canadian, but I feel like one. ... It means a lot to be recognized by this country. It means that all the hard work I put in over the years has paid off, but it isnt something that I played for. It wasnt my intention to play the game to be the best. It was my intention to play the game to do my best." Through 23 years with six teams, Raines hit .294 with a .385 on-base percentage. He has 2,605 career hits, including 430 doubles and 113 triples. Known best for his speed, the 53-year-old Raines is fifth on career stolen base list with 808. He now works as a roving minor league instructor with the Toronto Blue Jays. Bell spent 12 seasons in the major leagues with Toronto and the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. He was the 1987 American League MVP with Toronto. Ducey, a Toronto, played for both Toronto and Montreal over his career. Cheek, who died in 2005, broadcast 4,306 consecutive Blue Jays games from Torontos first contest until June 2, 2004. Bailey, who died in 1978, owned the Triple-A Vancouver Mounties. . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. . Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. A look at whats happening all around the majors Saturday:---SURGING SANCHEZToronto right-hander Aaron Sanchez (9-1, 2.94 ERA) looks for his third straight win when he faces the Detroit Tigers. Sanchez, who turned 24 on July 1, is 3-0 with a sparkling 1.61 ERA in his last four starts. He hasnt lost since April 22 against Oakland.FEELING BETTERRight-hander Julio Teheran, Atlantas lone All-Star, has been cleared to make his regular start against the White Sox after being treated for an infection due to an ingrown hair on his right thigh. If everything goes well tomorrow and he feels good Sunday, hell be available to pitch in the All-Star Game, Im assuming, interim manager Brian Snitker said Friday. Teheran (3-7, 2.72 ERA) faces left-hander Jose Quintana (6-8, 3.06 ERA) in the second game of the series.VERRETTS CHANCELogan Verrett starts in place of Matt Harvey when the New York Mets take on Max Scherzer and the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. Harvey is headed for season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome and manager Terry Collins has said Verrett likely will get a chance to hold down that spot in the rotation. The right-hander is 3-5 with a 4.01 ERA in 23 appearances this season, including five starts. I know Im not Matt Harvey, Im Logan Verrett. My job is to pitch and however I can get in there and help the team is exactly what Im going to do, Verrett said.BUXTONS STATUSMinnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton is day to day after he bruised his right knee when he crashed into the outfield wall in the first inning of Friday nights game at Texas. The ball hit by Rougned Odor clipped off the edge of Buxtons glove and the bill of his cap before he ran into the padded wall. The impact broke his sunglasses into multiple pieces. Buxton was eventually taken off the field on a motorized cart, climbing into the front seat with help and without putting any pressure on his right leg. Cheap Jerseys 2020Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
