TORONTO -- Ontarios Liberal government admitted Tuesday that the original $113-million security tab for Torontos 2015 Pan Am Games was just a "place holder" number, and warned the latest estimate of $239 million could go higher. Jordan Poyer Jersey . The Toronto 2015 Pan Am organizing committee came up with the figure because they had to put something in the bid book that helped secure the international event for the city, said Tourism Minister Michael Chan. "The $113 million was presented a long time ago, in 2010, and it was a place holder because security has to be there," said Chan. "You probably will appreciate TO2015 doesnt have the skills, they dont have the expertise, they dont have any knowledge about security." Saad Rafi, who took over as the CEO of the TO2015 Pan Am organizing committee after Ian Troop was fired, said he wasnt involved when the citys bid was prepared and couldnt say where the $113 million estimate came from. Officials wouldnt have had a good handle on the number of athletes and coaches that would be coming or how many venues would be used and in what communities when they prepared the security estimate for the bid book, added Rafi. "I think a myriad of elements and factors go into generating an estimate of costs," he said. "If you want a more detailed answer Im afraid we couldnt give it because we werent there to submit the bid book." The Opposition demanded Chan resign or be fired after the security bill for next years Games more than doubled. "The minister and this government and TO2015 and everyone involved in these games doesnt have a clue whats going on," said Progressive Conservative critic Rod Jackson. "They cant answer a straight question in the House on this, and it seems like no cost is too high." Chan bristled at suggestions he should have known what the original $113 million estimate for security at the Games was based on. "I wasnt there," he said. "Do you really want to know why they had that number in there? Theres probably a reason for that." The $239-million tab for security will likely change before the Games start in July 2015, but could go down or up, added Chan. "Anybody who thinks that number will be stationary, will not move, I think that would be unreasonable because we still have a year and five months before the Games and lots of things can happen," he said. "And that number can go down if we control costs, or security may go up. This is the nature of the Games." Rafi announced the Games were on schedule and on budget so far, and admitted one of his biggest concerns was getting people interested in the Pan Am competitions. "We want to engage the public and create a sense of excitement which will drive their participation in festivals as well as the Games themselves," he said. "We want to make sure we can maximize our ticket revenue." The 2015 Pan Am Games will take place at 34 different competition venues across the Golden Horseshoe, from Niagara in the south to Orillia in the north, running from July 7 to 26, followed by the Parapan Am Games Aug. 7 to 15. The total budget for the Games is now estimated at $2.5 billion. Jaquan Johnson Jersey . The top-ranked Djokovic also beat Gael Monfils and then routed Roger Federer en route to his first Abu Dhabi title. "Its always great to win a title. This is the best way to start the 2012 season," Djokovic said. E.J. Gaines Jersey . Rob Klinkhammer and Mikkel Boedker scored 63 seconds apart in the first period for the Coyotes, who handed the Kings their third straight loss and took over sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference. Mike Smith made 36 saves.LOS ANGELES -- All that separated Dan Haren from a possible chance at a no-hitter was a third-inning single that was awarded to Clevelands Michael Bourn after a replay review. Rookie Clint Robinson made sure the right-handers best outing of the season didnt go to waste, hitting a pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom of the seventh, and the Los Angeles Dodgers opened their interleague series against the Cleveland Indians with a 1-0 victory on Monday night. Dodgers shortstop Miguel Rojas made a diving stop of Bourns smash behind second base and got the out call from umpire Adrian Johnson before Cleveland manager Terry Francona successfully challenged the ruling. Bourn stole second, putting two men in scoring position. But Asdrubal Cabrera looked at a third strike. Had the play on Bourn not been overturned, Haren felt he had enough to try for the Dodgers third no-hitter of the season after the gems by Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw. Haren was lifted after seven innings. "I didnt even think about it until I came out of the game and Zack (Greinke) said something like: If this was last year, youd have a no-hitter," Haren said after his 103-pitch effort. "I think 2 2-3 was the longest Ive had a no-hitter this year, so that was pretty good for me." The defending NL West champions took over sole possession of first place in the division by a half-game over idle San Francisco. The Giants led them by as many as 9 1-2 games as recently as June 8. Since then, Los Angeles has gone 15-6 and San Francisco 4-15. The Indians, coming off a three-game series at Seattle in which they swapped one-hit shutouts with the Mariners, couldnt do a thing against Haren (8-4) after Felix Hernandez stymied them through eight innings on Sunday. "I would have liked to be on the winning side of all three," said Cleveland third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, whose single in the fifth inning against Hernandez was the Indians only hit on Sunday following Josh Tomlins complete-game 5-0 victory over the Mariners on Saturday. "Youve got to give the pitchers credit. That doesnt happen a lot," Chisenhall added. "We usually work counts, get deep into counts, get hits and put pressure on guys. But we havent done that two days in a row." Haren struck out five and walked one on the 11th anniversary of his major league debut, getting through seven innings for just the third time in 17 starts this seaason. Cheap Bills Jerseys Authentic. He ended a streak of nine consecutive outings in which he allowed a home run, one shy of his career-worst stretch in 2012. "I worked on some stuff in between starts, and tonight I was locating the ball really good," Haren said. "Weve been working on the curveball, trying to feature it a little bit more during the game." Brian Wilson pitched a perfect eighth and Kenley Jansen a 1-2-3 ninth for his 25th save. Corey Kluber (7-6) allowed a run and six hits over 6 2-3 innings and struck out five. The 28-year-old right-hander, who has spent all four of his big league seasons with the Indians, came in 6-0 with a 2.29 ERA in his six previous interleague starts. The Dodgers, who held the NL champion Cardinals to just four runs while taking three of four, had runners at second and third in the fourth when Kluber struck out Andre Ethier and retired Juan Uribe on a flyball. Ethier came up again in the seventh and led off with an opposite-field triple off the glove of left fielder Michael Brantley on the warning track. Two outs later, pinch-hitter Hanley Ramirez was intentionally walked and Robinson worked the count full before smacking a single up the middle for his first major league hit and RBI. "It put us in a position to win the ballgame. The crowd was cheering, all my teammates were fist-bumping, it was awesome," Robinson said. NOTES: A moment of silence was observed in memory of Bobby Castillo, a nine-year major league pitcher who spent his first five seasons and his final one with the Dodgers. "Babo," as he was affectionately called by everyone in the organization since his rookie year in 1977, died Monday at age 59 from cancer. The L.A. native was credited with teaching Fernando Valenzuela how to throw his trademark screwball. ... Dodgers reliever Chris Perez spent the previous 4 1-2 seasons with Cleveland. Two seasons ago, he made some disparaging remarks on the record about Indians fans because of the teams poor attendance -- and felt their wrath numerous times in the aftermath. But he has no regrets. "Everything I said was true. I didnt make anything up," said Perez, who turns 29 years old on Tuesday. "It became a little more of a distraction for me than I would have liked, but I think the team didnt let it bother them. Overall, I think I was more successful there than some fans would like to give me credit for."
