RIO DE JANEIRO -- An Algerian womens goalball team could be expelled from the Paralympics for failing to show up for two matches.IPC officials said the absence could be a form of political protest, which is banned in the Paralympics as it is in the Olympics.The International Paralympic Committee said the team did not appear for a Friday match against the United States, and would also miss a match on Saturday against Israel.In terms of political protests, there are a range of actions we could take, IPC spokesman Craig Spence said. It could be a slap on the wrist. It could be as easy at that. It could be that the team is removed from the competition.Spence said Algerian officials claim they suffered multiple delays, cancelled flights and missed connections attempting to board a flight Sept. 5 from Warsaw, Poland en route to Rio de Janeiro.Spence said the rest of the Algerian delegation was in Rio. Algerian officials told the IPC that the goalball team would arrive on Sunday.Even if you caught a boat from Poland to Brazil, you probably could have got here in time, Spence said. So were still working with the Algerians as to whether they can give us a sensible explanation.Goalball is a Paralympic sport for the blind or visually impaired. Three players on each side occupy a small court and try to maneuver a ball into the opposing net, getting directional clues from bells inside the soccer-size ball.During last months Olympics, Middle East politics also spilled over when an Egyptian judo athlete was sent home after refusing to shake the hands of an Israeli opponent.The IOC acknowledged the rules of judo did not oblige players to shake hands, but said the Egyptians behavior went against Olympic rules of fair play and spirit of friendship.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP .

BALTIMORE -- The Toronto Blue Jays took a big step toward taking more command of the American League East on Monday night with a win over the Baltimore Orioles. Now the Jays will try and do a little more Tuesday.Toronto (75-56, a season-best 19 games above .500) holds a two-game lead over Boston and a four-game edge against Baltimore (71-60). The Jays and Orioles meet again in the middle game of the three-game series, and Toronto cant leave town any worse than two games ahead of Baltimore.You try to win every game from here on out, Toronto manager John Gibbons said after Mondays win. We always have battles with these guys. Any time you get that first game of the series, you always feel that much better.Toronto also gets a favorable pitching matcup Tuesday, sending out J.A. Happ (17-4, 3.19 ERA) against Ubaldo Jimenez (5-11, 6.62). Happ saw his 11-game winning streak end in his last outing, a 6-3 loss to the Angels on Aug. 25.Happ gave up four runs and six hits in five innings in the loss. Jimenez stepped in for Chris Tillman in the Baltimore rotation as hes on the disabled list with right shoulder bursitis, retroactive to Aug. 21. In his last start, Jimenez allowed just one run in six innings but took the loss as Washington posted a 4-0 victory last Thursday.Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Mondays game that Tillman threw fine on flat ground and will go again Wednesday. Theyre hoping he can come off the DL close to the time hes scheduled to do so.As Gibbons said, this is the biggest time of the year for both teams.dddddddddddd. The Orioles and Blue Jays both will have chances to make noise in the division and fight for playoff spots.Showalter said his team is ready for the grind of the final five weeks.The last 30, 40 games are an eternity, Showalter said. Were just trying to do things to keep us involved in it. We have an opportunity ... to play meaningful games down the stretch.The Orioles also have been dealing with a number of injury issues in recent days. Setup man Darren ODay is on the disabled list for the second time this year (rotator cuff strain), and offensive spark-plug Adam Jones now has not played since Friday night because of a hamstring strain.The Orioles made the playoffs in 2012 and 2014 but missed out last year while Toronto won the division before losing to the World Series champion Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series. Baltimore remains in line at least for a shot at the wild-card game but is slipping back in the division race.Much of the final months games will be played inside the competitive American League East as the Jays are fighting the Orioles and Boston for the division title and/or a wild-card berth.Gibbons likes the schedule working out this way. He thinks its probably what tells the true story.Thats (how) it ought to be, Gibbons said.
