Northamptonshire 345 for 6 (Keogh 154, Crook 84) v WorcestershireScorecard Rob Keoghs first century of the season in the Specsavers County Championship, backed up in a partnership of 159 with Steven Crook, put Northamptonshire in control on the first day against Worcestershire at New Road.The 24-year-old Keogh made 154, with three sixes and 21 fours from 236 balls, and Crook provided aggressive support with an unbeaten 84 from 123 deliveries in their sides progress to 345 for 6.The end for Keogh, after nearly five hours, came from a misjudgement when he was run out by Ed Barnard, swooping from mid-off as the batsmen went for a sharp single.This was a big change of tack for Northamptonshire. Three days after winning the NatWest T20 Blast trophy at Edgbaston, they needed to refocus on avoiding the Division Two wooden spoon in the Championship.Thanks to Keoghs guidance, its a case of so far, so good. Having started the day 17 points clear of bottom county Derbyshire, they extended the gap by taking three bonus points in a challenging response to Worcestershires decision to bowl first.The initial skirmishing marginally went in the home sides favour as Northants lost their fourth wicket at 118 after a hard-fought 41 overs, but in the 90 minutes up to tea Keogh and two partners scored 128 in 23 overs.Richard Levi was first to raise the tempo, although the South African would have been disappointed to fall into a Worcestershire trap after making 33 out of 54 in 10 overs.Tempted by a short ball from Charlie Morris, he pulled it straight to deep square leg for a comfortable catch by Joe Clarke, one of two men posted for the shot.By then, Keogh was approaching his best score of the season, 75 against Sussex at Arundel, and ready to avoid Levis mistake when he succeeded in clumping a similar shot over the rope.Crook was just the man to put pressure on a quartet of seamers, toiling on a hot afternoon. Not for the first time at New Road, the allrounder took the game to the bowlers as a new partnership raced along at five runs an over.Keogh hit another six and duly reached three-figures with his 15th four from 144 balls. His innings was perhaps not quite chanceless after a couple of flirtations outside off stump, but it was a high-value performance in straightening out his teams early problems.Rob Newton, after a double century in the previous match, was out in the sixth over, a leading edge off Barnard falling to Morris at mid-off, and Ben Duckett, after a bright start, went for 26, driving Joe Leach to extra cover.Alex Wakely followed up his valuable runs on T20 finals day by making 25 out of 64 added for the third wicket, but was out soon after lunch, pushing at a ball from Barnard for a routine catch by wicketkeeper Ben Cox.Levi was involved in a stand of 54, at more than twice the rate, and Worcestershire were pushed back by the force of Crooks half-century from 64 balls.Keogh was on 106 at tea and could have gone without addition when pulling Barnard to deep mid-wicket, but Tom Fell, having made ground to his left, was unable to take a difficult chance.

TORONTO -- In back-to-back postseasons, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion hit the two biggest home runs Blue Jays fans had seen in a generation.But after making baseball history in Toronto, both might be about to become history in Toronto.One year after a six-game AL Championship Series loss to eventual champion Kansas City, the Blue Jays fell to World Series-bound Cleveland in five-games Wednesday. Now a winter of change is expected. Bautista and Encarnacion highlight a list of nine Toronto free agents, including six on this years playoff roster.Largely unheralded when each arrived by trade -- Bautista from Pittsburgh in 2008 and Encarnacion from Cincinnati in 2009 -- the Dominican sluggers developed into All-Stars. The team evolved, too, from an also-ran playing before sparse crowds to a contender that led the American League in attendance this season, reinvigorating a national audience across Canada.After Toronto ended a 22-year playoff drought with an AL East title last year, Bautista blasted the Blue Jays into the ALCS with a three-run homer to win Game 5 against Texas, punctuating his shot with a memorable bat flip.This year it was Encarnacions turn, with a three-run drive in the 11th inning to beat Baltimore in the wild card game.The two homers are Torontos most indelible moments since Joe Carters World Series walk-off gave the Blue Jays a second straight title in 1993.They really helped put this team back on the map again, what theyve accomplished, manager John Gibbons said. Both of them made their name here in Toronto. But baseball is still a business. Its a game we play, but its still a big business and guys earn the right to try free agency.In a September radio interview, Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro said probably the most likely scenario was that Torontos free agents would be allowed to hit the open market. Outfielder Michael Saunders, right-hander R.A. Dickey, left-hander Brett Cecil and right-hander Joaquin Benoit are among the remainder of that group.A sold-out crowd of 48,000 roared as Bautista and Encarnacion batted in the ninnth inning Wednesday.ddddddddddddAfterward, Encarnacion acknowledged mixed emotions about his future.Im really sad because I dont know whats going to happen next, Encarnacion said through an interpreterr. But overall I feel really proud for the fans and what this organization has done for me.Bautista (265) and Encarnacion (239) rank second and third behind Carlos Delgado (336) on the Blue Jays career home run list.Encarnacion signed a three-year, $29 million deal in in 2013 and is coming off a team option at $10 million. After matching a career-best with 42 homers and career-high 127 RBI, he could command a nine-figure contract.Encarnacion stopped to sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans still chanting his name as he left the stadium more than two hours after Game 5. Citing an affection for the city, he called Toronto his first choice in free agency.Bautista signed a $65 million, five-year deal in 2011 and the team picked up a $14 million option this season. The six-time All-Star arrived at spring training openly demanding a big raise, but may not earn what he once hoped. Limited to 116 games by injuries, he finished with 22 homers, his lowest total since 2009, and 69 RBI.In a somber clubhouse Wednesday, Bautista said he wasnt in the proper state of mind to consider whether he and longtime friend Encarnacion had played in Toronto together for the final time.I know its a possibility but well see what happens, Bautista said.Even if their free agents find new homes, the Blue Jays still have several key players under contract next season, including 2015 AL MVP Josh Donaldson, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and catcher Russell Martin. Toronto also controls closer Roberto Osuna, AL ERA leader Aaron Sanchez and four other starters from the rotation that posted a league-low 3.64 ERA.Shapiro has said Gibbons will return for in 2017, the final year of his contract. The rest of Torontos coaching staff is also expected to stay.
