The Blue Jays scored on a throwing error following a fielders choice in the bottom of the 10th inning Tuesday night at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium to squeak out a 4-3 victory over Daytona in the first game of the Florida State League playoffs. The best-of-five series continues Wednesday at Dunedin.

Brian Van Kirk led off with a double for Dunedin against Juan Serrano, who had replaced Frank Batista to start the inning. Jon Talley then reached on a bunt single while pinch runner Ryan Schimpf went to third. Serrano intentionally walked Kevin Ahrens to load the bases before Justin Jackson hit a grounder to second.

Daytona second baseman Logan Watkins threw Schimpf out at but catcher Chad Noble made a throwing error while trying to complete the doubleplay, allowing Talley to score the winning run.

Jake Optiz had three hits and an RBI for the Cubs while Elliot Soto added three hits and a run scored. Jeff Antigua is slated to start Game Two for the Cubs while Matt Loosen will go in Game Three.

Tri-City completed its sweep of Boise Tuesday night at Gesa Stadium, cruising to a 9-1 victory to advance into the Northwest League finals. The Dust Devils will face the winner of the Eugene-Vancouver series for the crown.

Former Bulls center Joakim Noah suspended 20 games for violating NBA's anti-drug policy

The NBA announced Saturday that it has suspended former Bulls and current Knicks center Joakim Noah for 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

He tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement called selective androgen receptor modulator LGD-4033, which is prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement but would not have been under the new CBA starting next year, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

It was announced in February that Noah would miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. His suspension will carry over into the 2017-18 campaign with only 10 games left this year.

Noah averaged 5.0 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games in his first of a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks.

Scouting Report:

"Peterman's experience in a pro-style passing attack gives him a head start headed into the league. His physical attributes are just average, but his accuracy, composure and anticipation are what sets him apart from some of the more physically gifted quarterbacks in this year's draft. Peterman's tape is sure to catch the eye of at least a few teams in need of a quarterback and he should come off the board by day two with a chance to become a solid starting quarterback in the future." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
