. For the Blue Jays, not so much. This weekend, battling to get back over the .500 mark, John Gibbons and company kick off a stretch of seven straight games against the National League. They start with three at Pittsburgh against the struggling Pirates and then follow up that series with two at Philadelphia before returning home the next night to kick off a two-game set at Rogers Centre with the Phillies. After salvaging the final game of their three-game set at Kansas City on Thursday night with a 7-3 victory, the Jays sit at 13-15 but thanks largely to the injuries and flaws of the other teams in the AL East, they are still just two-and-a-half games back of the first place Yankees. Still, if the Blue Jays are going to keep it that close, theyve got to start beating the National League clubs with more regularity. Since interleague play came into being in 1997, the Blue Jays have compiled a record of 143-160. The first 16 years, the games were compressed into a small portion of the schedule when school was out in June and early July for the most part. Last season, with Houston moving to the American League, there were 15 teams in each league so there pretty well had to be at least one interleague game each and every day of the season. Last season, the first year under the new format, the Jays actually had a winning record against the National League clubs at 11-9. But overall, the Jays interleague record pales to those of the Yankees and Red Sox. The Yanks are 179-123 over the 17 years heading into this season. Boston is right behind them at 175-128. It isnt just the big boys who have success in interleague play, though. The Angels, who havent won a World Series since 2002, are 174-130 against the senior circuit over that span. The White Sox are 171-132 and even the Minnesota Twins are 165-137. If you average it out over 17 seasons, the Blue Jays have cost themselves about two games per season versus the Yanks and Red Sox in the East by struggling in interleague play. The American League has dominated this annual showdown between the two leagues, having the better record in 13 of the 17 seasons. Oddly enough, though, in the beginning the National League was up four winning seasons to three over the first seven interleague plays. The American League has dominated ever since. Nine American League teams are above .500 in the crossover play to just five National League clubs. The top National League club in interleague play is Atlanta at 148-131, followed by St. Louis at 135-120. Miami has done surprisingly well at 149-141. Luckily for the Blue Jays, the two teams they are playing against over the next seven days havent traditionally done well against the American League. Pittsburgh is the worst at 106-143 and the Phillies are 127-158. The Pirates have really had their troubles this season. After making the playoffs last season for the first time since 1992, the Bucs are 10-18 this time around. They lost one of their top pitchers in A.J Burnett in the offseason as a free agent to the Phillies, while lefty Wandy Rodriguez is recouping from a knee injury. But the Pirates real problem has been cashing in runners. They stranded 28 men in dropping a day/night doubleheader to Baltimore Thursday. On top of that, their number one catcher, Russell Martin of Montreal, is on the disabled list. The Pirates are in a virtual tie for last in the NL Central with the Cubs. The Phillies are only marginally better. They are 13-13, tied with Miami for last in the AL East. Yes the Phillies were stung by the retirement of Roy Halladay in the offseason but like the Pirates, their problem is run production. If you can believe it, their outfielders have only 15 extra base hits and the season is a month old. These are teams the Blue Jays must beat. Anything less than five out of seven will be a failure. One thing to remember about the Phillies is that they won a World Series in 2008; just six years ago. Yet this year, they lost 6,000 season ticket holders and their average attendance drop from a year ago, according to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer, is 9,129 per game. This, for a team that has known recent success and has a pretty new and fan-friendly ballpark. The inclement weather of April likely plays a major part in the Phillies drop-off, but it just shows fans wont put up with mediocrity forever. I was more than a bit surprised that the team with the second biggest drop-off is Detroit at 5,493 per game. This, for a Tigers team that seems to win the AL Central nearly every year and has been to the World Series, albeit, hasnt won twice in the last eight seasons. You might have missed it but the Dodgers franchise reached a milestone on Wednesday, winning its 10,000th game. The only others to reach that magic figure are the Giants, the Cubs and the Braves. And of those four, the Cubs are the only teams to have played their entire existence in one city. The Dodgers Zack Greinke is putting up some obscure but impressive stats, nonetheless. Hes off to a 5-0 start this season and has made 18 straight starts where he has pitched five innings or more and given up two or fewer runs. That hasnt happened in 100 years -- since 1914. The last time Greinke started a season 6-0, he won the Cy Young Award in 2009 while in the American League. Adam Lind isnt close to returning to the active roster yet. Hes still rehabbing his back. But when he is healthy again, the Blue Jays could face an interesting dilemma if Juan Francisco keeps hitting the way he is. There is no way the Jays can carry Edwin Encarnacion, Lind and Francisco on the same roster. Francisco has one edge over Lind in the versatility department in that he can also play 3rd base in a pinch. Linds not in any kind of jeopardy, but this situation will be interesting to watch.

. Completely. Two days after releasing Peyton Manning, the longtime face of the franchise, the Colts announced they were cutting four fan favourites: running back Joseph Addai, linebacker Gary Brackett, safety Melvin Bullitt and tight end Dallas Clark.San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Michal Neuvirth made 29 saves to earn his first win of the season and Nicolas Deslauriers netted the deciding goal early in the third period, as Buffalo nipped San Jose by a 2-1 count on Saturday. Cody Hodgson also lit the lamp in the final stanza for the Sabres, who snapped a four-game slide and picked up their first win on a four-game road trip which ends in Toronto on Tuesday. Brent Burns supplied the lone goal and Alex Stalock stopped just 13 pucks for the Sharks, who stumbled to their fourth straight loss and fifth in six games. Final Score: Boston 4, Toronto 1 Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Dougie Hamilton had one goal and two assists in the Boston Bruins 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Carl Soderberg, David Krejci and Gregory Campbell also lit the lamp for the Bruins, who bounced back from Thursdays 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders. Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara hurt his left knee against the Islanders and will be sidelined for the next 4-to-6 weeks. Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston, which improved to 5-5-0 on the young season. Richard Panik scored the lone goal for the Maple Leafs, who have lost three of four. Jonathan Bernier stopped 21-of-25 shots before being pulled in the third period. Final Score: Montreal 3, NY Rangers 1 Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - In the first meeting between Montreal and the New York Rangers since last years Eastern Conference finals, Carey Price turned away 34-of-35 shots in a stellar effort that carried the red- hot Canadiens to a 3-1 victory at Bell Centre. Price sustained a knee injury in Game 1 of the 2014 East finals and missed the remainder of the series, a contributing factor to the Rangers prevailing in six games. The standout goaltender was healthy and in top form on Saturday, however, yielding just a first-period goal to Carl Hagelin to help Montreal move to 7-1-0 on the young season. Max Pacioretty had a goal and an assist in the win, which concluded a perfect four-game homestand for the Habs. Tomas Plekanec and Lars Eller also scored while Dale Weise chipped in a pair of assists. The Rangers had a three-game win streak snapped as Henrik Lundqvist couldnt match Prices performance, finishing with 26 saves. Final Score: New Jersey 3, Ottawa 2 (OT) Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The ageless Jaromir Jagr scored on the power play with 1:21 left in overtime to send the New Jersey Devils past the Ottawa Senators, 3-2, on a somber night at Canadian Tire Centre. Saturdays game was the first for the Senators following the tragic shooting of a Canadian soldier in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday. A moment of silence was held for the victim prior to the national anthems, with both teams circling members of the Canadian Armed Forces at center ice. The emotional vibe in the arena gave way to disappointment as the Senators had their four-game winning streak snapped. The Devils ended their four-game skid as Damon Severson scored a goal and assisted on Marek Zidlickys tally. Cory Schneider, one day after losing in a shootout against the Stars, made 33 saves in the victory. Alex Chiasson and Bobby Ryan scored for the Senators, who received 26 saves from Lehner. Final Score: NY Islanders 7, Dallas 5 Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Frans Nielsens third-period hat trick helped the New York Islanders to a 7-5 win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday. With the game tied aat 4-4 after two periods, Nielsen started his surge as he finished a 2-on-1 rush with a goal at the 9:39 mark.

. He then received a pass from Mikhail Grabovski on another 2-on-1 break and wristed the puck past Anders Lindback for a 6-4 lead 5 1/2 minutes later. Shawn Horcoff cut the deficit in half when he beat Chad Johnson only 23 seconds after Nielsens second tally but the native of Denmark capped the night on an empty netter with one-tenth of a second left. Anders Lee, Nikolay Kulemin, Brock Nelson and Lubomir Visnovsky each added a goal for New York, which has won two straight on the heels of a two-game skid. Johnson made 26 saves in the win for the Metropolitan Division leaders. Final Score: Philadelphia 4, Detroit 2 Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Raffl scored twice in the third period and added one assist, as a badly outshot and outplayed Philadelphia squad claimed a 4-2 victory over Detroit on Saturday night. Nicklas Grossmann and Brayden Schenn posted markers with Jakub Voracek and Michael Del Zotto totaling two helpers apiece for the Flyers, who picked up their first win on home ice this year despite recording only 17 shots. Ray Emery won his second consecutive start with a 35-save performance. Riley Sheahan and Pavel Datsyuk provided the offense for the Red Wings, who havent won a regular- season game in Philly since 1997. Jonas Gustavsson made 13 stops in defeat. Final Score: St. Louis 3, Chicago 2 St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Reaves and Dmitrij Jaskin scored in a 1:45 span late in the second period to snap a tie and send St. Louis to a 3-2 decision over Chicago in a Central Division clash at Scottrade Center. Jaden Schwartz also lit the lamp and Alex Pietrangelo added a pair of assists for the Blues, who put a two-game skid to rest. Brian Elliott made 22 saves for the hosts. Patrick Sharp registered a goal and assist for the Blackhawks, who have dropped back-to-back one-goal games on the road. Kris Versteeg scored, but Antti Raanta took the loss despite 28 stops. Final Score: Pittsburgh 3, Nashville 0 Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Sidney Crosby scored his fifth goal of the season and Marc-Andre Fleury was stellar between the pipes as the Pittsburgh Penguins blanked the Nashville Predators, 3-0, on Saturday. Crosbys first- period tally was all Pittsburgh needed, as Fleury turned away all 25 shots he faced. Evgeni Malkin and Pascal Dupuis scored insurance goals for the Penguins, who ended a brief two-game slide. Pekka Rinne allowed all three goals on 26 shots as Nashville fell in regulation for the first time this season. Final Score: Minnesota 7, Tampa Bay 2 St. Paul, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Jason Zucker netted two goals and the Minnesota Wild cruised past the Tampa Bay Lightning, 7-2, on Saturday. The Wild scored four times on eight shots in the first period and had six different players -- Zucker, Zach Parise, Marco Scandella, Mikko Koivu, Erik Haula and Jared Spurgeon -- light the lamp. Darcy Kuemper, fresh off his third shutout of the season in Thursdays win over Arizona, only needed to make 17 saves in the blowout victory. Nikita Kucherov and Anton Stralman each scored goals for the Lighting, who finished up a five-game road trip with a 3-2-0 record. Evgeni Nabokov was the victim of Minnesotas fast start, while Ben Bishop made 11 saves in a relief role.
