For the third straight time in this spring training, Jamie Moyer pitched in a B game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Yesterday morning's exhibition, however, was quite different for the Phillies' 47-year-old lefthander and it wasn't a good different. His pitching line: five runs - all earned - eight hits, one walk, four strikeouts, three innings and quite a few expletives. "I didn't think I threw very well," Moyer said after the Phillies' 8-1 loss to the Jays. "I elevated a few too many pitches.

On the first day of his chase to overtake Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez limped around the clubhouse, an ice pack on his leg. A-Rod was hit on his right calf by a pitch from Toronto's Josh Towers last night and wasn't in the starting lineup for only the second time this season. Yankees manager Joe Torre said before last night's game that he didn't expect Rodriguez to miss significant time, adding that Toronto's artificial turf played into the decision to hold A-Rod out. Torre and Roger Clemens were ejected after Clemens hit Alex Rios in the middle of the back in the seventh.

For most of the day, Chien-Ming Wang grounded the Toronto Blue Jays. Then, a little trickler turned the whole game. Wang could only watch when Vernon Wells' tapper rolled to a stop and the visiting Blue Jays suddenly broke loose, rallying for three runs in the seventh inning to beat New York, 3-2, yesterday and end the Yankees' five-game winning streak. The 45-foot single that nestled in the grass near the line was the key play. "The difference was we got the big hit. We picked up each other up, even though one of the hits wasn't much," Toronto's Lyle Overbay said.

C.C. could stay While every writer, fan or foe has C.C. Sabathia pegged to be dealt before the trade deadline, it's important to note that the lefthander is still with the Indians and may be beyond this season. According to a report in the Newark Star-Ledger, Cleveland is burning the midnight oil hoping to sign Sabathia to a contract extension before it's left with only the option of trading him. It's a long shot, however. The 2007 Cy Young winner said that he didn't want to discuss an extension during the season after negotiations stalled in spring training.

Mark Buehrle was perfect. And then, for 6 weeks, he was winless. Buehrle won yesterday for the first time since his perfect game on July 23, ending an eight-start drought by pitching the Chicago White Sox over the visiting Boston Red Sox, 5-1. "A couple of guys joked around and said I got to buy them something like I did on the perfect game and the no-hitter," Buehrle said. "It's obviously nice to go out there and score some runs. " Buehrle (12-7) outpitched Josh Beckett (14-6)

The Toronto Blue Jays did just about everything necessary to end their miserable losing streak. They got a fine pitching performance from ace Roy Halladay, reached double figures in runs for the first time since May 6 and twice had an apparently secure lead. And still, the host Baltimore Orioles rallied for an unlikely 12-10 victory in 11 innings yesterday. Nolan Reimold hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning, providing the Orioles with their first three-game winning streak of the season and extending the Blue Jays' skid to nine games.

Roy Halladay pitched a five-hitter to best former teammate A.J. Burnett, Scott Rolen had three hits and three RBI and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the visiting New York Yankees, 5-1, last night. The Yankees played without shortstop Derek Jeter, who is day-to-day with a sore right oblique muscle. "It just hasn't gotten any better," Jeter said. "It was their thinking that we had yesterday off and a day or two can't hurt. " Aaron Hill hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who improved to an American League-best 23-12.

Beer and alcohol sales were banned at the Detroit Tigers at Toronto Blue Jays game last night, a day after their season opener was delayed when unruly fans littered the field with baseballs and debris. The clubhouses were cleared of booze, too, after the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario suspended the liquor license at Rogers Centre for three dates because of past infractions. That meant a very sober crowd saw Rod Barajas hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to give the Blue Jays a 5-4 victory over the Tigers last night.

AS A MAJOR LEAGUE pitcher, it isn't every day that you turn around and find a baseball in your neck. Which is a good thing - turns out it hurts. "It's like I got punched in the throat from around the corner," Sean O'Sullivan said. This was in the sixth inning of the Phillies' 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks yesterday. On most afternoons, the six scoreless innings that O'Sullivan pitched would have been the headline, but he spent at least as much time after the game talking about a throw from his own catcher that nearly ended his outing at its most pivotal moment.

NEW YORK - J.P. Arencibia drilled a three-run double in a five-run sixth inning, and Jose Bautista homered to help spot starter Carlos Villanueva and the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Monday night. Starting in place of injured Jesse Litsch, Villanueva (2-0) limited the Yankees to two hits and a run in five innings. With a looping curveball, he struck out the side to open his first start since Oct. 3, 2009, for Milwaukee. Arencibia added an RBI single in the eighth, and Bautista didn't disappoint in his matchup with Curtis Granderson as the top two home run hitters in baseball.

Toronto manager Cito Gaston didn't need a map to tell him he wasn't in the wrong city in the wrong country. After all, the club designated as the home team in interleague play is dictated by the rules of Major League Baseball, and Gaston said those rules should make him and his Blue Jays feel right at home in South Philly this weekend. "I've never been involved in anything like this personally," Gaston said before the Phillies routed Toronto, 9-0, Friday. "This is something different.

Guillen: I'm to blame Ozzie Guillen talks a lot. In fact, the Chicago White Sox manager is a sportswriter's dream. No matter what the question, the loquacious skipper has an opinion. Yesterday, he talked about himself, taking the blame for a season that probably will end with the defending AL Central champs out of the playoffs. Before the game, Guillen told reporters that the disappointing season is not the fault of general manager Ken Williams, owner Jerry Reinsdorf, or his players.

Roy Halladay pitched a one-hitter last night to snap a three-start losing streak and Toronto beat the visiting Yankees, 6-0, ending New York's winning streak at seven games. Aaron Hill doubled twice and had two RBI and Adam Lind had three hits for the Blue Jays, who won for the first time in five games. The complete game was the sixth of the season for Halladay (14-8), tying him with Kansas City's Zack Greinke for the major league lead, and the 46th of his career. He struck out nine and walked three to win for the first time since Aug. 14. "To feel like, at any moment, I could make a pitch if I had to makes a big difference," Halladay said.

The Blue Jays parted ways with popular teammate Alex Rios in the visitors' clubhouse just before the first pitch last night, their task of slowing down the streaking New York Yankees made that much more difficult. The Yankees had won seven straight, and were fresh off their first four-game home sweep of bitter rival Boston in 24 years. Their pitching had been dominant, their offense explosive. Leave it to the Toronto bullpen, of all things, to turn the game upside down. Lyle Overbay and Aaron Hill hit solo homers, and the Blue Jays' gritty relief corps made a meager lead stand up in a 5-4 victory that gave visiting Toronto its first three-game winning streak since the last week of June.
