"He did exactly what weve come to expect." Five relievers held the Blue Jays to a run the rest of the way and closer Rafael Soriano nailed down his 24th save by getting the final two outs in the ninth inning.

LEVERKUSEN, Germany -- Bayer Leverkusen has signed Bernd Leno until 2017, giving the talented 19-year-old goalkeeper who came on loan from Stuttgart a long-term deal. The move throws into doubt the future of Germany goalkeeper Rene Adler, who is recovering from knee surgery and whose contract with Leverkusen expires at the end of the season. Adler was Germanys starting goalkeeper until a shoulder injury ruled him out of the 2010 World Cup. His place was taken by Manuel Neuer, now with Bayern Munich. When a knee injury and surgery ruled out Adler for several months going into the season, Leverkusen brought in Leno, who was a backup in Stuttgart. Lenos loan deal was set to expire in December. "With Bernd Leno, weve made sure of gaining the long-term services of one of the outstanding goalkeeping talents of Germany,&quuot; Leverkusen director Rudi Voeller said Wednesday. Calvin Johnson Jersey. "He has been an excellent deputy for the injured Rene Adler and played a major role in making us reach the last 16 in the Champions League. Leverkusen managing director Wolfgang Holzhaeuser said Leno earned the long-term contract with his good performances. "I am grateful that Leverkusen has given me the chance to play in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League," Leno said. No details of the deal between Leverkusen and Stuttgart were given, but Bild newspaper estimated the transfer fee at up to C8 million ($10.73 million). Leno still had 2 1/2 years on his contract with Stuttgart. Voeller told Wednesdays edition of Sport-Bild weekly that it was "unlikely" Adler would stay in Leverkusen if Lenos deal came through. ' ' '
