TORONTO - Its not a must-win in Alouettes head coach Tom Higginss mind but he concedes Montreals playoff fortunes would take a big hit with a loss Saturday to the Toronto Argonauts. Vans Old Skool Rosse . You can watch the game live starting at 4pm et/1pm pt on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 or listen on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto starting at 3pm et/12pm pt. The Argos and the Alouettes will square off at Rogers Centre. Toronto, Montreal and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are tied atop the East Division with 6-8 records with each having four regular-season games remaining. The Argos would not only move two points ahead of the Als with a win but also clinch the season series, giving them a crucial tiebreaker if the two ended up tied. That could be a key advantage as Hamilton, Toronto and Montreal are likely chasing two playoff spots due to the crossover. The B.C. Lions (8-7) are fourth in the West Division but would secure the No. 3 Eastern seed if they finished with a better record than the third-place team in the East Division. We do know that probably only two teams are making it into the playoffs so you severely hurt your chances when you lose any of those four remaining games, Higgins said Friday. Never put a must on top of the start of a win. Were going to line up, were going to play, were going to play very well and were going to win the football game and not have to worry about whether it was a must or just a maybe win. Theres no shortage of intrigue and suspense heading into the final four weeks as all remaining games are inter-division affairs with only Ottawa having been eliminated from playoff contention. Toronto and Montreal meet again Nov. 2 at Molson Stadium. Toronto coach Scott Milanovich called last weekends thrilling 34-33 comeback win over Hamilton a must for his team but didnt put the same emphasis on Saturdays contest. If we win this game, it puts us in a much better position moving forward, he said. The reality was if we didnt beat Hamilton last week we were basically going to be out of the first-place hunt so I wasnt going to hide that from our guys. The Argos and Alouettes have both been on a nice roll of late. Toronto has won three straight while Montreal is 5-1 with starter Jonathan Crompton. But Crompton hasnt been spectacular. Hes completed 58.9 per cent of his passes for 1,512 yards with seven TDs and seven interceptions. Crompton hasnt thrown for over 300 yards in a game and has just one road win, a 15-7 decision over Ottawa on Sept. 26. Everyones looking at stats, Higgins said. The only one we care about is hes won five and lost one as a starting quarterback. Milanovich praised Crompton for utilizing such offensive playmakers as receivers Duron Carter (54 catches, 712 yards, five TDs) and S.J. Green (38 receptions, 518 yards, two touchdowns). I get the quarterback point . . . but I think hes playing well, he said. Hes trusting his receivers, which is exactly what Id do if I was him. When you have a defence like theirs and playmakers like they do and returners on special teams, anything can happen. Cromptons status as Montreals starter was further solidified Thursday after the club released former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. But Higgins said that hasnt put more pressure on Cromptons shoulders. Quite the opposite, he said. I think theres pressure thats been alleviated because there was this pressure that there was an elephant in the room. Theres no doubt starter Ricky Ray has carried the Argos this season. The 34-year-old Californian leads the CFL in passing yards (3,861), touchdowns (27) and completion percentage (68.6) and has Toronto ranked first in total yards (361.6) and passing yards (287.2) per game and third in scoring (26.8 points). Thats hardly news to Higgins. He was Edmontons head coach from 01 to 04 and watched an unheralded Ray crack the roster as a No. 3 quarterback in 02 before capping his first season as the starter in 03 as a Grey Cup champion. His mentality hasnt changed from the first time he stepped on to the football field in Edmonton, Higgins said. Hes just one of the elite quarterbacks in the CFL and anytime you have Ricky Ray as your quarterback you always have a chance. The key, Higgins said, is getting to Ray before he can set up and find his receivers downfield. Were going to see if we can get after him, Higgins said. We know that presents a challenge but were up to challenges. Its kind of the same approach Toronto will take against Crompton. With any quarterback I still think the most important thing is to take away his running game, and then you have to put pressure on him, Milanovich said. You have to take away his running game then knock him on the ground a few times. Toronto will make a number of roster changes for the game. Offensively, receivers Spencer Watt and Jason Barnes go on the injured list, replaced by LaVon Brazill and Maurice Mann. The secondary will feature Evan McCollough (from practice roster) at halfback, Vincent Agnew moving from linebacker to replace Branden Smith at one cornerback spot and Orhian Johnson (practice roster) starting at the other. Matt Ware assumes Agnews linebacker position. Im not as concerned as youd think, Milanovich said. All these guys have played and started quite a few games. Its not ideal, Im not going to lie to you but these arent rookies and to me thats a big deal. Special-teams player Daryl Townsend (calf) and receiver Chad Johnson (groin) wont play for Montreal. Johnson, a former All-Pro, has just seven catches for 151 yards and a TD in his first CFL season. Vans Toy Story Italia . According to Tony Barrett of The Times, the Liverpool captain is set to announce that he will leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season. Vans Old Skool Nere e Bianche . It was the quickest three-goal sequence in Olympic history, with the latter two coming just eight seconds apart. Kessel, Lamoureux and Kendall Coyne all scored twice for the Americans, and Molly Schaus made 10 saves in her Sochi debut. http://www.oldskoolsaldi.it/ . -- Cole De Vries had a couple of key strikeouts during what could have been the inning that doomed him to defeat against the Kansas City Royals, allowing him to escape further damage and keep the game tied up.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- As long as they have Albert Pujols at the plate in a clutch situation, the Los Angeles Angels are confident they can win any close game they trail in the late innings. Pujols hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning Wednesday and Kole Calhoun also connected, leading the Angels to an 8-7 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Los Angeles took the rubber game of the three-game series after starter C.J. Wilson was chased in the fourth inning. "This team is finding ways to win, and were not out of it until the games over," Calhoun said. "The bullpen came in and did a great job keeping us in the ballgame after the starting pitching didnt go as deep as theyve usually been going. We came out and swung the bats and got enough runs to win." The Blue Jays took a 7-6 lead in the sixth on Dioner Navarros two-out RBI single against Fernando Salas, making his second appearance since coming off the disabled list after missing 19 games because of inflammation in his shoulder. Pujols responded with a drive that hit the top of the centre-field fence beyond the outstretched glove of Colby Rasmus and bounced over for his 20th homer of the season and 512th of his career, tying Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews for 21st place all-time. It scored Mike Trout, who reached on a fielders choice grounder after Calhoun drew a leadoff walk from Aaron Loup (2-2). The homer was the first allowed by Loup this season after 43 1-3 innings. "The curious thing was that they had the righty warmed up, and Albert hit that home run off a lefty. So we were like, Oh, awesome. Theyre leaving him in to face Albert, and he came up with a huge homer," Wilson said. "So it was great for us. We have a tenacious team, and the nature of our clubhouse is that we always believe that its going to happen." Jason Grilli (1-1) pitched a scoreless inning for his first AL victory since 2009 with Texas, striking out cleanup hitter Jose Bautista with two on to end the seventh. The 12-year veteran was acquired June 27 in a trade that sent Ernesto Frieri to Pittsburgh. Joe Smith worked the ninth for his 12th save. "We (threw) away a good opportunity today," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "We had the lead, coughed it up,, then took a slim lead. Vans Toy Story Old Skool. So it was disappointing. But hey, we left so many guys on base (12), and there comes a time youve got to blow open a game." Marcus Stroman was charged with five earned runs and eight hits through 4 2-3 innings in his eighth big league start. The 23-year-old right-handers teammates staked him to a 6-3 lead with a five-run fourth, but David Freese scored on a wild pitch in the bottom half and Calhoun drove his 10th homer into the lower seats in the right-field corner. "Early on against me, I felt like he was putting the ball anywhere he wanted to. But with a 2-0 count, I got a fastball that got a lot of the plate and I put a good swing on it," Calhoun said. The Blue Jays parlayed three hits, two errors and a bases-loaded wild pitch into their five-run rally against Wilson. He was charged with six runs -- three earned -- and eight hits in 3 2-3 innings. He is 3-3 with a 5.70 ERA in 10 starts since May 17, when he threw 127 pitches in a five-hit shutout against Tampa Bay. "I think my delivery was a lot better today and the ball was going where I wanted it a lot better," said Wilson, who gave up three homers in his previous start against Houston. The Angels took a 2-0 lead in the second, capitalizing on a two-base error by shortstop Jose Reyes. Howie Kendrick and Freese each had an RBI single. The Blue Jays got one run back in the third on a bases-loaded walk to Reimould. Trout, thrown out by Melky Cabrera in left field Tuesday night as he tried to stretch a double, tested Cabreras arm again in the third inning Wednesday and was cut down at home plate after Pujols single. Pujols scored on a single by Josh Hamilton that ended his 0-for-16 drought and gave the Angels a 3-1 lead. NOTES: LHP Joe Thatcher relieved Cam Bedrosian in the Toronto fifth after a leadoff double by Navarro and walked Darin Mastroianni, ending a stretch of 25 appearances in which Thatcher pitched 14 innings and faced 56 batters without walking anyone. ... Calhouns homer was the second allowed by Toronto pitchers in a span of 74 innings since the start of the month, after they gave up 27 during their final 22 games in June. ... Wilson threw 25 pitches in the first inning and gave up three hits without allowing a run.
