TORONTO – Dustin McGowan is determined to get to the bottom of the fatigue which plagues him during his starts. Adidas NMD XR1 Suomi . In-between outings, hell become better acquainted with a treadmill. "Actually Im going to start running a lot more, just see if that helps with endurance," McGowan told on Friday afternoon. If only it was that simple. McGowan is a type 1 diabetic. "I think a lot of it, for me, Im starting to figure out its got something to do with my blood sugar," he said. "Its so high." To put it into context, according to the National Institute of Health, the normal blood glucose level for a non-diabetic should be less than 125 milligrams per deciliter. Once McGowan takes the mound, his readings skyrocket to disconcerting levels. "I get so anxious and stressful and nervous leading up to the game," said McGowan. "Before I go out, Ill be fine, itll be 140, 150 and, without drinking anything or eating anything after I come out of the game, its over 300." In the ongoing effort to find a solution, hes going to take in insulin while hes pitching. "I may start wearing my pump during the game just to see if (the blood sugar) levels out a little bit," he said. McGowans injury history is well documented. He was a mainstay in the Blue Jays starting rotation in 2007, winning 12 games in a breakout season, and appeared poised to live up to the promise his status as a top prospect suggested. After remaining healthy through the first half of the 2008 season, he was forced from a July start with shoulder pain. Three weeks later, McGowans season was over when it was announced he would need surgery to repair his labrum. He had knee surgery in 2009 and a second shoulder procedure in 2010, this time to fix a torn rotator cuff. After returning to the rotation in September 2011 and making five starts at the end of the season, he experienced more shoulder problems in 2012, which led to another surgery. McGowan doesnt blame diabetes for his injuries but he believes the condition has hampered his ability to make hastened returns. "Recovery has been a pain because even when I get a blister or a cut, it takes forever to heal," said McGowan. "I can only imagine after getting my arm sewn back together what it was like. In that way, its been brutal but I dont think its done anything to cause me to get hurt. Its just the healing process takes a little longer." Finally last season, McGowan rejoined the club in June and settled into a relief role in which he posted a 2.45 ERA in 25 appearances. His return to the rotation this year is a testament to his perseverance but also a reflection of the Blue Jays desperation. There were no other immediate options after Ervin Santana spurned the club for the greener pastures of the National League and a contract with the Atlanta Braves. McGowan would like his blood sugar level to be between 150 and 160 milligrams per deciliter while hes pitching. Hes as concerned with the reading dropping too low as he is with disturbing spikes and so hes okay with a slightly higher count than what a non-diabetic would expect. "When youre doing exercises, its supposed to go down," said McGowan. "I think just because of the stressful situations pitching and stuff like that, it just causes it to boot up a little bit." Manager John Gibbons is openly musing about using a six-man starting rotation with the schedule about to get busier. The Jays have one off-day between the start of the next road trip, Tuesday in Kansas City, and Sunday, June 1. There are only four off-days remaining between now and the All-Star Break in mid-July. After admitting hed wondered to himself if a return to the bullpen makes the most sense, McGowan wants to clarify: he wishes to remain in the starting rotation. "Its something Im not going to shy away from," said McGowan. "Im going to do it until they take it out of my hand." Adidas NMD Pharrell Human Race .J.

WASHINGTON -- The way his team keeps piling up losses, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel is on the verge of losing his cool. Considering how his bullpen imploded in Cliff Lees latest start, it would be understandable. Jayson Werth launched a two-run homer in the seventh inning for his 1,000th career hit, highlighting a five-run rally that sent the Washington Nationals over the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5 Saturday night. Werth got three hits against his former team, including an RBI single in the fourth and his two-out, tiebreaking shot off reliever Zach Miner. Jake Diekman (0-3) took the loss in a game the Phillies led 4-0 in the second inning. Lee left after six innings with a 4-3 edge, but Philadelphia dropped its 10th straight road game. Overall, the Phillies have lost eight of 10. Manuel was asked if losing this game combined with the teams poor play since the All-Star break made him want to scream. "It kind of gets me in a screaming mood, but Im trying to keep my cool," Manuel said. "When you start losing and you find different ways to lose every night it becomes tough. Youve got to fight through it." The Nationals rally denied Manuel his 1,000th win. In his second major league game, Tanner Roark (1-0) pitched two spotless innings. Tyler Clippard surrendered Domonic Browns 26th home run in the eighth and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 29th save. Darin Ruf also homered for the Phillies. Pinch-hitter Steve Lombardozzi drew a leadoff walk from Diekman in the seventh. With one out and runners at the corners, Diekman faced Bryce Harper in a lefty-lefty matchup. Nationals manager Davey Johnson called for a safety squeeze on a 1-1 pitch. Harper bunted, and the ball popped in the air and landed in front of second baseman Chase Utley, who recorded a forceout at second as the tying run scored. Werth, a former Phillies star, then greeted Miner with his homer, and Anthony Rendon tacked on a two-run single later in the inninng.

"When you set out playing this game however many years ago, that was one thing, a benchmark you put on the list of things you want to accomplish," said Werth, who scored three runs. "It was good." In 58 games since returning from a hamstring injury on June 2, Werth is hitting .355 with 13 homers and 38 RBI "Hes absolutely raking right now." Bryce Harper said. "Im just trying to touch his bat so I can get some hits in there." Lee had lost his previous three starts. The veteran left-hander has not won since defeating Atlanta on July 5. Wilson Ramos hit a two-out single in the sixth to score Werth, trimming Philadelphias lead to 4-3. Lee ended the threat then exited the game. "They got my pitch count up and I was done after six," said Lee, who threw 97 pitches. "I feel like when Im out my jobs done. Its up to the guys coming in behind me to keep it where its at," he said. Asked later if he had confidence in the Phillies bullpen, Lee said, "Yea, I mean hey, why not." Lee picked up an RBI with his own safety-squeeze bunt during Philadelphias four-run second inning. Ruf hit a two-run homer off Taylor Jordan and later Jimmy Rollins singled home a run. "We did some good things tonight early in the game," Manuel said. "Our young guys hit the ball good, things like that. We scored some runs, but we couldnt add on." NOTES: Making his eighth career start, Jordan allowed four runs and seven hits over five innings. ... Facing minor league batters, Phillies RHP Roy Halladay threw five 15-pitch innings during a simulated game in Clearwater, Fla. "He came out of it great," Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said.
