From the miracles-do- happen department: Major League Baseball will not expand the use of its instant-replay system this season. The bosses - who had looked forward to reviewing trapped balls, fair-or-foul rulings, and fan interference - now hope to do so in 2013. This season will be the same as last season: Replay will remain an option only on disputed home run calls. According to the Associated Press, which cited sources familiar with the situation, there were at least two roadblocks to expanding replay reviews: umpires and players.

New York Yankees rookie Phil Hughes was halted in his no-hit bid by a left hamstring injury that could sideline him for 4 to 6 weeks. Despite his setback, the Yankees routed the host Texas Rangers, 10-1, last night. Hughes winced and grabbed his left thigh after throwing an 0-2 breaking ball to Mark Teixeira with one out in the seventh. It was his 83rd pitch of the game. Mike Myers got through the rest of the inning without a hit, then allowed a leadoff double to Hank Blalock in the eighth.

Franklin Gutierrez hit a three-run homer and the visiting Cleveland Indians rebounded from a tough loss to beat the Detroit Tigers 11-8 last night. The Indians overcame homers by Carlos Guillen, Magglio Ordonez and Marcus Thames to tie the series at a game apiece and increase their AL Central lead to 1 1/2 games over Detroit. The Tigers rallied for two runs in the ninth when Jensen Lewis allowed four hits, including RBI singles by Placido Polanco and Ordonez with one out. Joe Borowski relieved with two on and retired Guillen before striking out Ivan Rodriguez on a 3-2 pitch for his 35th save in 40 chances.

There was no word from George Steinbrenner about Joe Torre's job status after the Yankees' latest loss, 7-4, to the Boston Red Sox yesterday at Yankee Stadium, completed a 9-14 April. Yankees captain Derek Jeter defended his manager. "It's unfair," Jeter said. "There's no way he's responsible for us performing. He's not hitting for us. He's not pitching for us. He puts the best players out there on the field. We're just not doing the job. That's the bottom line. " Home runs by David Ortiz, Alex Cora and Manny Ramirez gave the Red Sox a 5-1 record against New York this season, and a 6 1/2-game lead in the standings.

Despite being told he would not be back next year, Wedge will manage the remainder of the season.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Phillies' front-office contingent left Walt Disney World's Swan and Dolphin Resort early yesterday afternoon hoping it had found an answer in the quest for pitching depth. According to multiple reports, the first from CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies have come to an agreement on a deal with free agent pitcher Roberto Hernandez. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. couldn't comment specifically about the deal - nor name the pitcher - as he prepared to leave the site of baseball's winter meetings following yesterday morning's Rule 5 Draft.

Fausto Carmona won his 18th game, Ryan Garko and Jhonny Peralta hit back-to-back homers and Cleveland beat the visiting Oakland Athletics, 4-3, last night to lower its magic number to two for clinching its first AL Central title since 2001. Coupled with Detroit's 5-4 win over Kansas City, the Indians remain 7 1/2 games ahead in the division. "It's real exciting," Garko said. "The best part is we've been able to stop watching the scoreboard. " Carmona (18-8) has won his last four starts, allowing a total of four earned runs during the streak.

Deciding the AL Central champion will take a while. Fausto Carmona struck out a career-high 10 and finally got his 14th win as the Cleveland Indians regained a share of the division lead with Detroit by beating the visiting Tigers, 5-2, last night to split the two-game showdown series. Carmona (14-7) dominated Detroit, allowing one earned run and four hits in eight innings. Staked to an early 3-1 lead, Carmona unleashed his breaking pitches on the Tigers, retiring 13 of 14 in one stretch, and earned his first win since beating Boston, 1-0, on July 25. "Whew, Carmona was something," Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge said.

There is time for Ruben Amaro Jr. to make the following words trivial. Pitchers and catchers report to Clearwater on Feb. 12, so the Phillies have a little less than two months to amend the Winter of Indifference. Chatter among the baseball world at last week's winter meetings sounded like, "What, exactly, is the Phillies' plan?" Then again, this franchise has operated rudderless since July 31, 2012. You remember that day, the day the Phillies traded two-thirds of their outfield in the name of "payroll flexibility" and "deeper inventory.

About the only bright spot for the Angels in Saturday's 9-2 whipping by the Rangers was Mike Trout. The pride of Millville, N.J., drove in Los Angeles' first run in the third inning, and then scored on a fifth-inning single to become the first AL rookie to score in 13 straight games since Don Lenhardt did it for the St. Louis Browns in 1950. By the way, Trout got in scoring position via his 22d consecutive stolen base. Meanwhile in Washington, Bryce Harper, had a day he likely wants to forget.

DETROIT - Power-hitting first baseman Prince Fielder, who said it was "a dream come true," was introduced Thursday by the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park after finalizing a $214 million, nine-year contract, the fourth-largest deal in baseball history. "I just never thought this could happen," said the son of former Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder. Fielder recalled hanging around Tiger Stadium when his father played for Detroit. "For me, it was always Sparky saying I was going to pinch-hit - and I really believed him," Fielder said, referring to former managerSparky Anderson.

In 10 years, Austin Kearns has just two career hits against A.J. Burnett. He's made them both count. Kearns hit his first homer in 105 at-bats this season, a stunning three-run shot in the seventh inning off Burnett, sending the Indians to a 6-3 win and spoiling All-Star shortstop Derek Jeter's return to the Yankees' lineup last night in Cleveland. With two on and the Indians trailing 2-1, Kearns, who has been in a slump all season, hit a 1-0 pitch from Burnett (8-7) the opposite way to right for his first homer since Aug. 22, when he wore Yankee pinstripes.

CLEVELAND - Josh Beckett picked up his first regular-season win in Cleveland - where he pitched an October gem four years ago - to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 4-2 win Tuesday night over the Indians, who couldn't quite muster another late-inning rally and lost for just the fifth time at home. Beckett (4-1) allowed one run and five hits in 62/3 innings for his only non-postseason win at Progressive Field. He won here in the 2007 ALCS, pitching eight dominant innings in Game 5. Jason Varitek hit a two-run homer in the seventh off Fausto Carmona (3-5)

Grady Sizemore never heard the crowd's roar. Striding to the plate for his first at-bat in 11 months on a surgically repaired left knee, Sizemore's mind raced. His thoughts drowned out a welcoming ovation from fans who couldn't wait to see him back in Cleveland's leadoff spot and roaming centerfield. As he stepped into the box, the noisy ballpark went silent. "There was a lot going on right there," he said. The grueling rehab. The hours of practice. The wait. All of it was over.

In a season where nothing has gone right, the winless Boston Red Sox found a new way to lose yesterday. A couple of them, in fact. The Red Sox lost their sixth in a row when the Cleveland Indians squeezed home the only run in the eighth inning, then trapped pinch-runner Darnell McDonald off second base for the final out in a 1-0 victory. "It can't get any worse than this and there's only one way to go," third baseman Kevin Youkilis said. "That's up. " At 0-6, the Red Sox are off their worst start since 1945, when they lost a team-record eight straight.
