I have spurts where I go out there and

San Antonio, TX ( - Tony Parker scored 26 points and Tim Duncan posted his third straight double-double to help the San Antonio Spurs get back in the win column with a 125-118 decision over the Los Angeles Clippers. Duncan went for 21 points and 12 rebounds, Boris Diaw added a season-high 23 points off the bench and Manu Ginobili scored 19 with 10 assists for the Spurs, losers of an unlikely four straight games before this win. The Spurs assisted on 37 of their 49 baskets and shot a season-high 63.6 percent from the field. Chris Paul scored 25 points and Blake Griffin had 22 in LAs fourth straight road loss. The Clippers were up by eight early on following DeAndre Jordans layup, but lost their lead late in the first quarter and never led again. They did, however, make things interesting. Despite trailing by as many as 17 points, the Clips pulled even at 102 on Jamal Crawfords jumper with 8:17 left in the fourth. They then had two possessions to try to go in front, but Glen Davis missed a jumper and Jordan was whistled for a charge. Parker put the Spurs up for good with a 3-pointer from the left wing. Danny Green hit two treys after that and Duncan converted a three-point play to seemingly put the game away, but Diaw missed two free throws and Ginobili split a pair in the final 30 seconds to give the Clippers life. They failed to capitalize. Paul missed two 3-pointers at the other end and Green put the game away with two from the stripe. Marco Belinelli hit from deep and Diaw canned a pair of 3s during a 9-2 run late in the first quarter that gave the Spurs a 35-33 lead through one. The Clippers kept things close until seven straight from the Spurs pushed their lead to 62-49 3:57 before halftime. San Antonios best scoring half of the season ended when Ginobilis runner made it 72-60 at the break. Green and Kyle Anderson hit 3s around a Griffin free throw that made it 78-61 early in the second half. But just when the hosts appeared to be in complete control, the Clippers made their push. They shot 60 percent in the period, which it closed on a prolonged 29-17 run to pull back within five. Game Notes San Antonios previous highest scoring half was 68 points against Minnesota on Dec. 6 ... San Antonio won the first matchup this season, 89-85, on Nov. 10 ... J.J. Redick scored 21 points and Crawford had 18 for LA. Al-Farouq Aminu Jersey . - Because they didnt go into Beast Mode, the Seattle Seahawks found themselves in Spin Mode. Anfernee Simons Jersey . Head of clinic Josef Obrist tells the Austria Press Agency on Thursday that Morgenstern "is doing surprisingly well. ... He still has a memory gap but thats nothing unusual." Morgenstern has moved to a rehabilitation clinic in Klagenfurt for further recovery. So far, so good: Gonzalez has allowed one run through 12 innings this season. His second start came Tuesday night, when he gave up only three singles over six innings to lead the Nationals to a 5-0 victory over the Miami Marlins. Caleb Swanigan Jersey .Heres Ralph the Dog with the crew here at TSN jumping into the James Duthie TradeCentre selfie: Happy to drop by! RT @TSN_Sports: @tsnjamesduthie: Take this Ellen. Georgios Papagiannis Jersey . Didnt need any help this time. Wood beat Cincinnati for the first time in his career, repeatedly pitching out of threats for seven innings, and Chicago stalled the Reds week-long surge with a 2-0 victory Monday night.BOSTON - Ricky Romero is here in the literal sense. In the baseball sense, while he continues to put in the time and the work, he could just as easily be somewhere else. Relegated to a long role in the bullpen since returning as a September call up, Romeros appeared in just one game, a two-inning outing against the Angels almost two weeks ago. "Its different," Romero told "Its definitely something Ive never been used to but Im adapting to it. As they say, youve got to be comfortable being uncomfortable sometimes and Im getting my work done." At this point, it seems doubtful Romero will get a start prior to the season ending next Sunday. Manager John Gibbons remains committed to his current five-man group of R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle, J.A. Happ, Todd Redmond and Esmil Rogers. Happ is scheduled to pitch on Monday in a make up game in Chicago, the Jays last remaining game against a fellow non-contender. If there was to be an opportunity for Romero, or Kyle Drabek, to get the call, that would have been it. Romero knows he wont be pitching late in a close game. With the rotations improved performance of late and the larger number of available relievers in September, there havent been many innings to parcel out. Still, Romero tries to stay prepared. "If its been a few days and I feel like I need to work and just kind of to stay fresh Ill go in there and ask (pitching coach) Pete (Walker) and get some work done," he said. "Obviously, like I said, its something that Ive never really been used to. You know, (Friday,) getting up and you fire away and its crazy. Its a different feeling. We have a good group of guys down there that, you just continue to learn and appreciate those guys even more. Not that I didnt before but now youre like, wow, kind of like its a little bit of a chaos that goes down there when that phone rings and everyones just kind of watching (bullpen coach) Pat (Hentgen) to see whose name hes going to call out. "Its a different adrenaline rush," Romero continued. "I dont like it. I like my starter role but, like I said, its a little different but Im adapting to it." Like appearances this month, nothing is guaranteed Romero heading into next season. Hes back on the 40-man roster but he could, once again, be designated for assignment to clear space for someone else. Owed at least $15.6-million over the next two seasons, its difficult to imagine another club making a waiver claim for such a steep price. Romero understands the business side of the game. He tries to avoid thinking about it when possible. "Stay positive and just go about my business and continue to do that and just be ready whenever my name is called," he said. "Thats all I can do. I dont make those decisions on when Im going to come in and stuff like that. All I can do is just continue to come here, put on my uniform and go to work." Admittedly tired of the questions about his future, about how hes handled the adversity of the last almost two calendar years and about where he sees his career going, Romero insists he will emerge stronger than before. "These struggles go beyond baseball," he said. "It goes beyondd all that stuff.dddddddddddd. Its made me tougher in other aspects of life. Its one of those things where this games not easy. I dont want to go out there and fail. I think I have spurts where I go out there and think about it and reflect on stuff. The past, theres nothing I can do about it anymore. Nobodys more disappointed than me but at the same time its a learning experience and from talking to the older guys theyre like, man, this is going to make so much better for years to come for you and one day youre going to look back on it and its not going to matter that much. Thats the way I kind of approach things, one day at a time, come in, do my work and go to home just knowing that youre giving it your all." SANTOS DEALING After his perfect inning on Saturday night, Sergio Santos hasnt allowed a run in 16 appearances dating back to August 16 nor a hit in 14 appearances dating to August 20. "Just command right now," said Santos of whats working for him. "Just kind of, I feel like Im throwing strikes and attacking hitters and just getting myself an opportunity to get ahead. Im doing that so hopefully I can keep doing it." Santos was acquired from the White Sox on December 6, 2011, for Nestor Molina, with the expectation he would be the Blue Jays closer. Injuries opened the door for Casey Janssen to take over the role. He saved 30 games for Chicago two seasons ago and, following a surgical elbow clean up earlier this year, Santos offered up reason for Jays fans to be confident in him down the road. "To me, I feel better (than in 2011,)" he said. "I feel better just because Im able to command my fastball a little more consistently to the inner and outer half so Im feeling good right now, Im kind of in a little groove right now and hopefully I can keep it going for as long as I can." DELABAR GRINDING Steve Delabars been struggling of late. Hes allowed at least one run (five total) in each of his last three appearances, marking only the second time this season hes allowed runs in consecutive outings. Delabar missed most of August with right shoulder inflammation from which hes recovered. Now, he admits, hes fatigued. "Where we are in the season and, you know, mentally just as much as physically everybodys beat down right now," he said. "Everybody on our side is probably on the same level right now. Im just, like everybody else, just grinding it out and finishing the season strong." Delabar, at 30, is completing his first full season in the big leagues and with it has come some lessons. "Youve got to pace yourself," he said. "You come out in April, in spring training, and all the throws that you make from before BP to during BP and you feel great so youre letting it go. You maybe catch a fly ball off the wall and you turn around and you fire it in and you cant do that. Youve got to pace yourself out and realize that those throws count even more later on. Casey (Janssen) and (Darren) Oliver, they tell you that kind of stuff and it really doesnt sink in until you actually need them. Youre going, hey, yeah, that makes sense. Just pace yourself throughout the season and dont go crazy."
