TORONTO -- Noel Prefontaine came into the CFL as a Toronto Argonaut, and he will leave as one too. The veteran kicker/punter will retire after signing a one-day contract at Sundays game between Toronto and the B.C. Lions at Rogers Centre. Prefontaine spent most of his 16-season CFL career in Toronto, winning Grey Cup championships with the team in 2004 and 2012. "I would like to thank the Toronto Argonauts organization for giving me the opportunity to fulfil my dream of playing professional football," Prefontaine said in a statement. "Im honoured to have played in the CFL for 16 seasons. I played the game with a strong sense of commitment and passion and can only hope I left a mark in the hearts of Argonauts fans." Prefontaine made club history as the only Argonaut to ever be named a CFL all-star punter on six occasions. He was also named an East Division all-star 11 times (eight at punter, three at placekicker). He holds the Argonaut records for total punts (1,464), all-time punting yards (67,061), and most punting yards in a single game (744). He also holds club records for most all-time kickoffs in a career (688), and most kickoff yards (40,521). Prefontaine also wasnt afraid to get physical when he had to, recording 91 special teams tackles in his career. "Internally, we considered him our MVP because he influenced the game more than any other single player on the roster," Argos vice-chair Mike (Pinball) Clemons, a former teammate of Prefontaines, said in a statement. "He put the special in special teams, which is exceptional but not surprising for a kicker. Whats more unexpected is there were times when he was our best offensive player, leading us in scoring and changing field position with one smooth sweep of his lower left appendage. "From unexpected to shocking, there were times he was our best defensive player, making the kinds of tackles that would make (former Argos linebacker and current Winnipeg head coach) Mike OShea proud." Selected by Toronto in the 1998 supplemental draft, Prefontaine spent 10 years with the Argos before being dealt to Edmonton prior to the 2008 season. He was traded back to the Argos during the 2010 season and was released in February. In 254 regular-season CFL games with Toronto and Edmonton, Prefontaine has 347 field goals, 80,678 punting yards, 53,723 kicking yards, and 1,634 points. The son of a Canadian father and a Vietnamese mother, Prefontaine began his football career at Cal State Fullerton before moving to San Diego State University. In 1996, he set a new SDSU record for longest single punt (82 yards) and recorded 4,469 punting yards in his time with the school. He was named a first team all-American in his senior year.

The White Sox are 6-3 against Cleveland this season after losing 17 of 19 to their American League Central rival in 2013. Mike Aviles went 1 for 2 with a walk and drove in Clevelands run. Scott Carroll (2-3) worked three scoreless innings in relief to get the win. Ronald Belisario worked a perfect ninth for his third save in five chances. The anticipated matchup between Sale and Justin Masterson was cut short. The game began 41 minutes late because of rain and then was stopped again after the third inning. That delay lasted 1:58 and neither starter was able to continue. Sale, in his second start following a month on the disabled list with a flexor strain, seemed headed for another special outing after allowing just one hit in six scoreless innings last week against the Yankees. He was nearly perfect in his three innings, with the only blemish a one-out walk to Aviles in the third inning. The ace left-hander needed just 40 pitches record nine outs..dddddddddddd His potential pitch count was a topic of conversation in the pregame media session when manager Robin Ventura was asked for a number. "Somewhere between 127 and where he was at last time," Ventura joked. Sale threw 127 pitches April 17 in his last start before going on the DL. He threw 86 pitches against the Yankees last week. Masterson (2-4) was able to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the first. The White Sox then touched him up for a run in the third inning when Gillaspie drove in Adam Eaton with a single to centre. Beckham made it 2-0 after the rain delay when he cranked solo homer leading off the fifth. Cleveland got on the board in the seventh when Aviles hit into a fielders choice to score Lonnie Chisenhall.
