BOSTON - On a day when more than 200 former Red Sox players and coaches returned to the major leagues' oldest ballpark to help the team celebrate Fenway Park's 100th birthday, the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez made some history, taking over fifth place with his 631st career home run as the New York Yankees spoiled Boston's celebration with a 6-2 win on Friday. Rodriguez's solo shot on the first pitch of the fifth inning put him past Ken Griffey Jr. and 29 homers behind Willie Mays' fourth-place total of 660. Eric Chavez added two homers and Nick Swisher and Russell Martin also connected for New York, while Derek Jeter moved into 18th place with his 3,111th career hit, passing Dave Winfield.

BOSTON - Fenway is a friendly park to the Sox - the White Sox. Chicago won its seventh consecutive game at the home of the Boston Red Sox as Paul Konerko hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning and a two-run homer in the ninth in a 7-4 victory that completed a three-game series sweep on Wednesday. "Playing three games here is not the same as playing in a lot of stadiums," Konerko said after another sellout crowd, the 660th straight at 99-year-old Fenway, watched the Red Sox waste a 3-0 lead after two innings.

The citizenry is nervous, Mo Vaughn was saying yesterday morning before the Red Sox played the Kansas City Royals in a matinee at Fenway. The Sox, leaders in the American League East, dropped a pair on the weekend, then another Monday night, and yesterday morning Maurice Samuel Vaughn, the Red Sox' first baseman and emotional core, was wondering what he could do to quiet "the panicking. " Vaughn - an emerging local hero for his unpretentious demeanor, his 24 homers, and his embracement of Boston's downtrodden neighborhoods - knows the root of the problem.

Roger Clemens is ready to return to the New York Yankees' rotation and likely will start at the Chicago White Sox next Monday. Clemens pitched six shutout innings for Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday, and Yankees manager Joe Torre said before last night's game against Toronto that he'll stay with Chien-Ming Wang, Mike Mussina and Andy Pettitte as his starters for this weekend's series at AL East-leading Boston. "I'm not disappointed that he's not pitching at Fenway," Torre said.

Having grown up in nearby Worcester, Ron Darling saw the Red Sox make enough outs over the years. Darling's local knowledge has allowed him to pitch 14 innings without an earned run in this World Series. Last night, he went seven unblemished innings as the Mets pounded Boston, 6-2, and tied the Series 2-2, with Darling all set up to pitch Game 7, if necessary, at Shea Stadium Sunday. "Winning this game in front of 40 friends and family members has got to be my biggest thrill," Darling said last night.

IMAGINE MICHAEL Irvin or Claude Lemieux doing a book signing in Center City. Imagine being that nauseated over anything sports-related that isn't an Eagles' draft. That's what New Yorkers had to deal with yesterday, when Red Sox slugger David Ortiz signed copies of his autobiography "Big Papi" in Manhattan, which is hard-core Yankees territory. Ortiz got out alive, which is more than we can say lately about the 9-14, last-place Yankees, who have lost five of six to Boston the last two weekends.

In the baseball capital of the world yesterday, the prospect of the first Subway Series in 43 years throbbed like the sound of taxi horns. Blue Mets and Yankees caps - their color and interlocking "NYs" similar yet distinctive - could be seen on the heads of men in Italian suits, in news kiosks amid the blaring tabloid headlines, on vendors' carts. The Mets, with their roller-coaster ride to a National League Championship Series meeting with the very un-New York-like Atlanta Braves, have stepped temporarily onto center stage here.

Bill "Spaceman" Lee was a pretty good pitcher for the Boston Red Sox in the 1970s. He is better known, however, for Delphic pronouncements that earned him his nickname and sound like Yogi Berra on acid. It was thus fitting that with the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox fighting for pennants - when Chicago last won the World Series, Mark Twain was still living; Boston last won 10 years later, Babe Ruth pitching - the Spaceman should be asked for predictions. On National Public Radio, he took the long view: Spaceman: "Uranus is in an 84-year cycle, and the last time Uranus was in this position after a loop around the sun was in 1918" - the Sox's last World Series victory, beating (who else?

Not a misprint The winning pitcher Thursday night for Baltimore? Adam Eaton struck out nine and walked nobody in 7 2/3 innings, giving up two runs against the White Sox. "We said before the game we were going to throw the fastball and throw it a lot," said catcher Chad Moeller. "Try and utilize his cutter and primarily try to pitch with those two pitches. I think it almost shocked them, based on some of the swings. " Earlier this week, Eaton got a public vote of confidence from Orioles manager Dave Trembley after getting shelled in his first two outings.

BOSTON - Freddy Galvis worked himself into a hitter's count, eyed up a fastball and probably hit the pitch as well as he has hit any pitch in a half-dozen years in professional baseball. It was the kind of swing the Phillies needed to create a different kind of swing in a lopsided game at Fenway Park. The Phils entered the sixth inning trailing by the equivalent of a touchdown (plus the extra point) to the revamped Red Sox. But they loaded the bases for their eight-hole hitter and he tried to do his best impression of the guy he was replacing.

BOSTON - In a few days, Jeff Bauman expects to be fitted for prosthetic legs to replace the ones he lost in the Boston Marathon bombing last month. For now, Bauman is still being carried by the "Boston Strong" spirit he has come to epitomize. Bauman, who spent part of his childhood in Philadelphia, threw out a ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's game between the Phillies and Red Sox at Fenway Park. He was joined by Carlos Arredondo, the man whose quick actions on Boylston Street likely saved the 27-year-old Bauman's life.

BOSTON - The fans called for Charlie Manuel, and the 69-year-old Phillies manager obliged. He signed some autographs and posed for a photo Monday on the Fenway Park dirt. He sauntered back toward the Phillies dugout until two young ladies cooed. For the next 10 minutes, Manuel greeted a procession of people who received a surprise attraction during their stadium tour. "You look much younger than you do on TV," one woman told him. A boy walked past and said to his father, "Charlie is so tall.

WASHINGTON - Phillies righthander Tyler Cloyd says that Boston's Fenway Park is a stadium he always wanted to visit, but he never had the chance. That will end on Monday when Cloyd gets the start against the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of a two-game series at Fenway. "I always wanted to go there," Cloyd said about Fenway. "My brother and I wanted to visit as many baseball fields as we could. " Cloyd couldn't fit it into his schedule and now he will get his chance. "Just going there is a big deal and to get the opportunity to pitch there is great," he said.

TERRY FRANCONA should be glad the standing ovation came early in the game. The former Red Sox manager, now managing the Cleveland Indians, got a video tribute and standing ovation after the first inning at Boston's Fenway Park. Then the Tribe pounded the Red Sox. Drew Stubbs and Mark Reynolds drove in three runs each and Cleveland had 16 hits - none of them a home run - in the Indians' 12-3 win over Boston last night. In 8 years as Red Sox manager, Francona won two World Series championships.

THE RED SOX had the emotion and a seven-game winning streak on their side. The Kansas City Royals had the pitching and enough timely hitting to come away with a doubleheader sweep. Lorenzo Cain walked with the bases loaded in the 10th inning to give Kansas City a 5-4 victory in the second game of a doubleheader on Sunday as the Royals swept a Red Sox team coming off an emotional week. "Doubleheaders haven't fared too well for us. We haven't won many series here," said Billy Butler, who tied the game with an eighth-inning homer.

This is how we do it. We get back to living, while remembering those who can't. We continue to strive, and no bombs or bullets can deter us for long. The Red Sox made an emotional and defiant return to Fenway Park on Saturday - their first home game since the Boston Marathon attack - and they brought Big Papi as an exclamation point. David Ortiz, who had played just once since July 17 after an Achilles tendon injury, made his debut and gave the crowd a passionate, if Utleyesque, speech, dropping an obscenity but getting the message across: "Nobody is going to dictate our freedom.

The massive manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings shut down the city of Boston on Friday, forcing the postponement of the Red Sox game against the Royals at Fenway Park, as the club tweeted, "to support efforts of law enforcement officers. " "We're locked in," Royals executive Mike Swanson said Friday morning from the team hotel. "They've told us not to leave the hotel and every place is closed right now. " Swanson described the lockdown, before the suspect was apprehended Friday night in nearby Watertown, as absolute.

The longest home sellout streak in major pro sports history is history. Fenway Park's streak ended Wednesday night vs. the Orioles at 820 games. The streak began in May 2003 and included the postseason. The string broke the record of 814 set by the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers in 1977-95. The average attendance during the streak was 36,605, the Red Sox said. Fenway Park's seating capacity was only 34,807 when the streak began. "We know that part of the reason it's over is because we failed last year," Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said before the game.

Also among the two dozen attending the ceremony were Carl Yastrzemski, Fred Lynn, Carlton Fisk, Pedro Martinez, and Roger Clemens. The team was chosen by the fans, historians, and members of the front office staff.
