Ricky Nolasco takes the mound opposite R.A. Dickey on Monday night when the Minnesota Twins open a three-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays. Nolasco will try to pick up where he left off against Milwaukee on Wednesday, when he went seven innings and gave up four runs on six hits to go along with seven strikeouts. Most of that damage came on a three-run homer to Aramis Ramirez in the seventh. For Toronto, Dickey eyes up a third win in his last four starts. He labored through five innings at Detroit his last time out, as he allowed four walks and seven hits. However, Dickey also struck out four and yielded only two earned runs. "It felt like a tightrope the whole game," Dickey said. "You have three or four games a year where your body is just cranky. Who knows what its from? It could be that Im getting close to 40 years old. That could be something, too. "Its not an issue. Ive had cranky days before and pitched well. Its just something I need to monitor and be ready to go (Monday)." After reeling off six straight wins and 15 of 17 overall, Toronto suffered consecutive 5-0 losses to St. Louis over the weekend as the bats have suddenly gone silent. The Blue Jays, one of the top hitting teams in the AL, combined for only seven hits in those two losses. Middle-of-the-lineup stalwarts Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion went 0-for-14. "Its hard to put a finger on it," manager John Gibbons said of his teams first series loss in seven tries. Minnesota has lost three of its last four games and currently resides at the bottom of the AL Central standings. The team is coming off Sundays lopsided, 14-5 setback to the Houston Astros. Twins pitchers gave up four home runs on the day, including a pair of grand slams to Chris Carter and Jon Singleton. Starter Samuel Deduno lasted just three innings. Mondays opener kicks off a nine-game road swing for the Twins, who will also face Detroit and Boston during the trip. The team signed designated hitter Kendrys Morales to a prorated one-year, $12 million contract over the weekend, although he is not expected to play in this series.

Jack McInerney and Dilly Duka scored in the final 10 minutes to give the Impact a 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night, leaving them 3-0-1 in their last four league games at Saputo Stadium. It wasnt enough to stave off mathematical elimination from the playoffs as the New York Red Bulls and Columbus Crew both won to move out of reach of the 6-17-6 Impact, who have five regular season games left to play. "We can still play spoiler, even though San Joses not really there either, but we can still put good performances in for the fans and for ourselves going into next season," said McInerney. "Its important to end on a good note." San Jose (6-12-10), whose winless run stretched to nine games, is also in grave danger of missing the post-season. The Impact got the fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot in only their second MLS season in 2013, losing their lone post-season game 3-0 in Houston. But they took a step backward in 2014, when poor defence and a 0-11-3 road record was their undoing. But the season is not a write-off yet. Their 1-0 win over the Red Bulls at home on Wednesday put them in first place in their CONCACAF Champions League group with one game left (Oct. 22 in New York), so there is motivation to keep their level of play up to try to salvage something from the campaign. "These games will carry into that," said McInerney. The Impact got new life in early August when the gifted Ignacio Piatti joined as the teams second designated player. Since then the entire squad has stepped up the pace, so that they are winning games theyd have let slip away earlier in the season. Other in-season acquisitions, such as Duka and midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran, have also helped. "You never want to use a season to build for the next one, but the club is trying to build something long-term," said defender Heath Pearce, who due to injuries anchored an inexperienced back line against San Jose. "You can see the pieces starting to come together slowly. "Hopefully that will lead into something special next year. You can see the team coming together. You can see a system and a style that weve been hoping for all year, aand weve added some pieces and now its a lot more realistic style.dddddddddddd" Nakajima-Farran said it may help that there is little pressure on the Impact in league play at the moment, but he said the players still feed off wins and have had enough of losing. "Its just being the players we are, we hate losing," he said. "Especially the training after a loss, when everyones still feeling the loss. "Its the worst feeling ever. This has been going on for quite a while in Montreal. And when the team doesnt change, guys are getting itchy to get on the pitch. And when we get on, theres a lot to prove, so its good to get a win." Piatti, who has been playing through a nagging bout of tendinitis in his left knee, limped off the field in the 57th minute. Even though the Impact are eliminated and it would be a chance to rest Piatti up for next season, coach Frank Klopas said "Well have to see" how much action the Argentine midfielder sees. "These guys are so competitive, they want to play," said Klopas. McInerney got his eighth of the season and his first since June 29 in the 81st minute to open the scoring. The ball went to Marco Di Vaio from a corner kick and the veteran strikers curling shot needed a diving save from Jon Busch. McInerney was standing on the doorstep and he put up his hands, as though in apology, as the rebound went off his body and into the net. In the 88th, Di Vaio fed Duka near the San Jose area. He cut inside and put a shot between two defenders in off the far post for his third of the season. The Impact were on full attack in the first half, when Piatti and Duka shot over the bar early on and McInerney just missed on a bicycle kick after a lob from Andres Romero. The closest call came in the 38th minute when Piatti tried a long shot that forced Jon Busch into a desperate leap to tip over the bar. The second half saw San Jose get chances, with Chris Wondolowski stopped from close range early and Atiba Harris heading just wide in the 70th. Notes: Montreal outshot San Jose 19-8. . . Playing a third game in eight days, the Impact gave Troy Perkins the start (and the captains armband) in goal ahead of Evan Bush. Academy product Jeremy Gagnon-Lapare got a start at left back and drew praise from Klopas. Left back Krzysztof Krol sat out a suspension from a red card shown in last weeks 2-1 loss at New England.
