No matter how you feel about the Bronx Bombers, you have to get a kick out of the New York Yankees' Old-Timers Day, if only because it puts Hall of Famer Yogi Berra back on a ball field. It was good to see the 88-year-old Berra talking with 27-year-old Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria before the 67th annual game on Sunday, as a reminder that the game's history ain't ever going to be over.

Both benches cleared during the second inning of a spring-training game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays yesterday, leading to the ejections of two players and two coaches. The teams, meeting in St. Petersburg, Fla., 4 days after Yankees manager Joe Girardi complained about Tampa Bay's aggressive play after a home-plate collision that injured catcher Francisco Cervellio, had been warned before the game that the umpires would have little tolerance for any further problems.

How's this for clutch pitching? The Phils were clinging to a one-run lead in the sixth inning. The Tampa Bay Rays put the potential tying run on base when first baseman Ryan Howard - would his defense be an issue before the Series was over? - made an error on a grounder by Carlos Pena. The temperature was rising at Tropicana Field, but Cole Hamels stayed cool. As he prepared to face cleanup man Evan Longoria, Pena broke for second. Hamels saw Pena go and threw to first.

IT WAS a one-two punch. First, the Boston Red Sox lost, then Evan Longoria, seemingly knowing what was on the line, lifted the Tampa Bay Rays into the playoffs. The Rays clinched the AL wild card with a stunning rally last night, overcoming a late seven-run deficit, then beating the visiting New York Yankees, 8-7, on Longoria's home run in the 12th inning. The Rays' win came 4 minutes after Boston blew a one-run lead in the ninth at Baltimore and lost, 4-3. The Red Sox, who held a nine-game lead over the Rays in early September, and Tampa Bay began the final day of the regular season tied for the wild card.

It took Oakland's Josh Reddick 82 games to hit five home runs. He doubled his season total in two, parking a couple in the Athletics' 5-4 win over Toronto on Saturday, one day after blasting three into the stands as the A's routed the Blue Jays, 14-6 on Friday night. The hirsute slugger, who has one of the best beards in sports this side of James Harden, matched the majors' record for homers over two games. Reddick, hitless in his previous 20 at-bats before the sudden power surge, had 32 dingers last year.

Matt Garza had to settle for his second career shutout after making a bid for the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay history. Garza didn't allow a hit against the Rangers until a debatable call with two outs in the sixth inning last night, then finished with a two-hitter as the Rays beat host Texas, 7-0. Meanwhile, a Tampa Bay lineup missing injured stars Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford hit four home runs in 4 2/3 innings off Kevin Millwood (6-7)....

THIS PAST TUESDAY, my son Jesse and I went to see the Phillies play the Tampa Bay Rays. Like many fans, we went to see the Phils' best pitching prospect, Aaron Nola, make his major league debut. I was lucky enough to have great seats about 12 rows behind home plate, which provided a great vantage point to gauge Nola's command and his "stuff. " Nola was extremely impressive in the six innings he pitched, holding the Rays to only one run and five hits, while striking out six and walking only one. To Phillies fans who have been starved for anything to get excited about, this confirmed that Nola was the next Cy Young, Robin Roberts or, at least, Doc Halladay.

FORTY-FIVE minutes before game time, the few fans who were in their seats and paying attention in rightfield broke out in a round of applause. A lone figure was jogging across the outfield grass toward the 401 sign in dead centerfield. The sound of 60 or so hands clapping mixed with the pregame elevator music that played over the sound system. The grounds crew watered the infield. Aaron Nola paused in front of the 401 sign, then jogged back. The smattering of fans clapped again. Hey, I wish I had something more dramatic for you, a slow clap or a rhythmic chant or an electric sense of anticipation rippling through a sold-out crowd as fathers lift sons upon shoulders to catch their first glimpse of the kid. But maybe the anonymity is fitting, because the Phillies' best pitching prospect since Cole Hamels is that kind of pitcher: understated, efficient, ready to pounce on any hitter who scoffs that he isn't a fire-breather named Thor.

Cole Hamels threw a seven-pitch scoreless first inning Wednesday and plopped down on the Phillies bench, where Roy Halladay sat at his right. The erstwhile ace did not disappear after May surgery on his prized right shoulder. He will board a plane Thursday bound for Florida, and a recovery that started in stadium bullpens around the country will intensify. Halladay will pitch in a simulated game Saturday in Clearwater, which could be the final progression before he appears in a minor-league game.

A YEAR AGO, Ike Davis hit 32 home runs for the Mets. Now, batting .176 in a season that has seen him sent to the minor leagues, the slugging first baseman is doing anything he can to get on base. Twice, he tried to bunt for a hit against visiting Atlanta. His first try went foul. The second went to the pitcher, who threw him out. And the Citi Field faithless let their favorite whipping boy have it with choruses of boos on each try. It was different in the sixth inning, when his RBI double off the rightfield wall drove in the go-ahead run and triggered a three-run rally in the Mets' 4-1 win. Davis was given a huge ovation as he stood on second base.

NEW YORK YANKEES third baseman Alex Rodriguez isn't ready to rejoin the team. The Yankees said Rodriguez has a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps muscle and won't be able to return this week in Texas, as had been planned. Instead, he will remain on the disabled list and return to Tampa, Fla., "for rest and treatment," the Yankees said in a statement issued before their game against the Red Sox last night in Boston. Rodriguez and manager Joe Girardi had said they were hoping he would return for tomorrow night's game against the Rangers.
