Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster Jack Morris knows why the Red Sox were able to beat the Blue Jays, 10-1, on Wednesday, and surprisingly, it had nothing to do with Boston's five homers. No, it was Clay Buchholz's spit. Morris, a former standout pitcher with the Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins, and the Blue Jays, told ESPN he sussed out Buchholz's spitball while watching a replay of the game Thursday. Buchholz denied it, saying he had wet hair and rosin on his arm. "There probably are stains on my shirt, because I've been wearing the same shirt for the last three years.

A pair of former Phillies righthanders went to American League contenders in separate deals yesterday. The Boston Red Sox acquired Paul Byrd from Cleveland, hoping to boost a rotation hurt by an injury to Tim Wakefield and the struggles of Clay Buchholz. And the Detroit Tigers signed free agent Freddy Garcia, who last pitched in the majors with the Phillies in June 2007 and required shoulder surgery shortly afterward. The 37-year-old Byrd is 7-10 with a 4.53 ERA. But he has won all four of his starts since the all-star break with a 1.24 ERA. Garcia, a two-time all-star, agreed to a minor-league contract with the Tigers.

NEW YORK - Clay Buchholz chilled the Yankees' bats, and Jackie Bradley Jr. got his first major-league hit as the Boston Red Sox beat the Yankees, 7-4, on a cold Wednesday night to open a season with consecutive wins for the first time since 1999. Righthander Hiroki Kuroda became the latest Yankee to get hurt, leaving in the second inning with a 2-0 deficit, four batters after Shane Victorino's line drive bruised the middle finger of his pitching hand. While the Red Sox under new manager John Farrell are off to their best start since going 5-0 in 1999, New York has been outscored by 15-6 and outhit by 26-15.

Ted who? Philly boo-bird favorite J.D. Drew had himself a June for the Red Sox. Drew hit 12 home runs in the month, with 27 RBIs. His 21 extra-base hits led to a slugging percentage of .848, the highest in a month by a Red Sox player since 1956, which was as far back as the club could research. The previous high? An .803 slugging percentage by Ted Williams in 1960. Sweet 16 The Oakland Athletics signed Dominican prospect Michael Inoa to a minor-league contract with a $4.25 million signing bonus.

Sam Fuld went 4-for-6 with a two-run homer, drove in three runs and fell a single shy of the cycle to help the visiting Tampa Bay Rays bust out of an early-season slump with a 16-5 win over the Boston Red Sox last night. Johnny Damon had three hits, including a solo homer, and three RBI against his old team, which now is 2-8. Daisuke Matsuzaka was knocked out in the third inning after allowing pounded for seven runs.

Was it dirt? was it pine tar? Whatever the brownish substance was on N.Y. Yankees starter Michael Pineda's right hand in the early innings of Thursday's game against Boston in the Bronx, it was gone by the fifth. That's why Boston manager John Farrell didn't point it out to the umps, he said after the Yankees' 4-1 win. Maybe the fact that two of his starters, Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester, have been accused of using a foreign substance swayed him, too. Pineda, who allowed one run in six innings while striking out seven, said afterward it was only dirt, moistened by sweat.

ASDRUBAL CABRERA hit a pair of two-run homers to lead the visiting Cleveland Indians to a 9-6 win over the Boston Red Sox last night. The Sox may have suffered an even bigger loss before the game. Boston righthander Clay Buchholz was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back and may miss the rest of the season, according to reports. ESPNBoston.com, Comcast Sports New England and the Boston Globe all reported the news. Buchholz (6-3, 3.48 ERA) was moved from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list Sunday to make room for new acquisition Erik Bedard.

If you were wondering why Astros lefthander Erik Bedard departed in the seventh inning Saturday against the Mariners when he had a no-hitter going, the answer is that he had a high pitch count. Houston manager Bo Porter explained Sunday that the 34-year-old Bedard, who has had three shoulder surgeries, decided to remove himself because he had thrown 109 pitches. "Whenever you start to talk about health issues, I'm always one that leans toward the side of protecting the player," Porter said.

WASHINGTON - Ryan Howard continues to be bothered by a sore left knee. For the second straight Sunday, Howard could not start at first base because of his knee. He did pinch-hit against winning pitcher Stephen Strasburg during Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Washington Nationals, hitting into a double play in the eighth inning. Howard received a cortisone shot last Sunday and did not play for two days. He started the next four games. After Howard struck out four times in Saturday's 5-3 win, it was thought that manager Charlie Manuel was just giving him a mental day off. That was not the case.

The Phillies boarded a plane for Philadelphia last Thursday. They had scored three or fewer runs in 17 of their 31 spring-training games. Perhaps their offensive struggles would be left behind. Those thoughts were quickly dispelled Monday with a listless 8-0 loss to Boston on opening day. The Phillies mustered just three hits, tied for their all-time lowest opening-day output. It was their first scoreless season opener since 1998. The team's first three batters - Ben Revere, Odubel Herrera, and Chase Utley - combined to go 0 for 12 with four strikeouts.

YOU CAN TALK yourself into most any lineup this early in the season. Opening Day is Opening Day because of the hopelessly optimistic hypotheticals it allows. The right amount of bunting and beer can make you believe in pretty much anything for a day. Yet no matter how many scenarios you spin in your head, you still can't get this Phillies lineup to a place where it is anything other than what you saw in yesterday's 8-0 loss to the Red Sox: a parade of strikeouts and groundouts interrupted by the occasional single.

EVEN MINUS Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup hardly skipped a beat. Jonathan Lucroy had four hits, Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings and visiting Milwaukee beat the Miami Marlins, 6-1, last night for its fourth consecutive victory. Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBI for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite playing without Braun after he aggravated his sore right thumb Sunday against the Phillies.

A CASUAL GLANCE at the lineup card was all you needed to recalibrate your expectations. With back-to-back wins over the Red Sox threatening to lure you back into believing in a season beyond September, the Phillies unveiled a batting order that featured a pair of corner infielders who had combined for 17 home runs in their major league careers and a second baseman who was making his first major league start. The result was what you might have expected, even with a spot starter on the mound.

IT WAS AN opportunity, not a necessity. That's what Charlie Manuel said of his decision to keep Chase Utley out of the lineup last night, despite the fact that the Phillies were coming off an off day and would enjoy another one tomorrow. With lefty Scott Kazmir on the mound and a day game today, Manuel decided that he would take advantage of the opportunity to get his 34-year-old second baseman 3 days of rest in a 4-day span. "I saw that it was an opportunity to kind of give him a blow," said Manuel, adding that the chance to "monitor him" and "get him off his feet" would be "good" for his star.

THE BOSTON RED SOX entered the first weekend of May with baseball's best record and the game's hottest pitcher, too. Former top prospect Clay Buchholz is 6-0 with a 1.01 ERA. He won American League Pitcher of the Month honors earlier this week. He also was accused of cheating. After throwing six shutout innings Wednesday in Toronto, Buchholz was accused of doctoring pitches by two former big-league pitchers-turned-Toronto broadcasters: Jack Morris and Dirk Hayhurst. Both said Buchholz was applying a foreign substance to the ball, which is illegal.
