Tampa Bay outfielder Carl Crawford angrily shouted at teammate Pat Burrell in the clubhouse before last night's game in Baltimore, the latest breakdown in a lost season for the Rays. It was not clear what caused the dispute shortly before the Rays took the field for pregame stretching. The Orioles won the game, 4-2, on catcher Matt Wieters' two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Crawford, who had two hits for Tampa Bay but was twice caught stealing by Wieters, repeatedly yelled across the clubhouse at the Rays' designated hitter.

Javier Vazquez made his first relief appearance in 4 years. Marcus Thames got the third game-ending hit of his career. Only Alex Rodriguez was used to this sort of late-inning madness. "We did it the hard way today," the slugger said. Rodriguez hit a tying homer off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning and Thames connected moments later for a two-run shot of his own, giving the New York Yankees a wild, 11-9 victory over the visiting Boston Red Sox last night. With one out and a runner on third, Rodriguez hit the first pitch into the visitors' bullpen in left-center to tie it at 9. Papelbon (1-3)

After a sizzling first two playoff rounds, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez reverted to his previous postseason struggles. In last night's 6-1 loss to the Phillies in the opening World Series game, Rodriguez went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts against Cliff Lee.

NEW YORK - It sounds as if Jorge Posada will get his regular rest tonight. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated yesterday he is not inclined to use Posada as a designated hitter in Game 2, which will be started by A.J. Burnett. When Burnett starts, Jose Molina usually catches. Posada sits, unless he would be the designated hitter, in this case, in place of Hideki Matsui. However, the Yankees are carrying only two catchers on their roster for the World Series. That means if Molina were to get hurt, and Posada had to move from DH to catcher, the Yankees' pitcher would have to hit for himself.

Mark Teixeira was inspired to be a switch-hitter watching Eddie Murray with the Baltimore Orioles. Now, he's connected to the Hall of Famer in the record book. Teixeira hit two-run drives from each side of the plate in the New York Yankees' 12-4 win over the visiting Texas Rangers last night, the 11th time he's homered as a lefty and righty in the same game. That matched Murray and Chili Davis for most in history. "My dad used to say, 'Is Eddie going to hit one from the right side or the left side?

NEW YORK - Derek Jeter walked to home plate, toyed with his batting gloves, stepped into the batter's box as fans chanted his name and legged out an infield hit. A feeling of normalcy returned to Yankee Stadium. The captain was back after a 9-month layoff. But, perhaps, only for a few innings. Jeter singled on his first pitch of the season, then felt a tight right quadriceps and was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning of New York's 8-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals yesterday.

FORMER World Series MVP Manny Ramirez was arrested yesterday after a domestic dispute at his South Florida home and charged with battery, police said. Ramirez, 39, and his wife were arguing in their bedroom when he allegedly slapped her face, causing her to hit her head on their bed's headboard, according to a police report. She told the deputy she was afraid the situation would escalate and called police. Ramirez denied hitting his wife, according to the report, telling a deputy she hit her head after he shrugged her. Police said Ramirez' wife, Juliana, had injuries consistent with her story, but did not want medical treatment.

Derek Jeter quit thinking about it and just started trying to hit the ball again. That philosophy is starting to pay off for the New York Yankees and their much-scrutinized leadoff hitter. Jeter homered twice after going 62 games without a long ball and finished with four hits to raise his batting average 20 points as the Yankees beat the Texas Rangers, 12-5, yesterday, winning two of three in their only regular-season series in the Lone Star State this season. "Everybody needs a day like this, regardless if you're swinging well or you're not swinging well," Jeter said.

Baseball * Yankees captain Derek Jeter was placed back on the 15-day disabled list yesterday. He strained his right quadriceps in his first game back with New York last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle. The Yankees had waited to make a decision, using the 4 days of the All-Star break for the shortstop to receive treatment. But with New York set to open the second half of the season against the Red Sox in Boston this weekend, the team announced the move.

NEW YORK - The injuries have added up while attendance has gone down for an aging, perennial playoff team that is no sure shot for the postseason this year. Sound familiar? While this could be a description of the Phillies, it also fits their famous neighbors 90 miles north, the New York Yankees. Who would have thought that as the July 31 trade deadline approaches both teams have the potential to be sellers? The fans of both teams aren't buying as many tickets as in the past, although interest remains high.

NEW YORK - David Ortiz hit one of three Boston homers to back a tireless Tim Wakefield and the Red Sox extended their domination of the Yankees this season, beating New York, 11-6, on Wednesday night to take over first place in the AL East. Carl Crawford and J.D. Drew also connected, both in the ninth inning to break the game open for a second time. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and Adrian Gonzalez added two RBIs. Facing his most familiar foe in Wakefield, Derek Jeter finished 1 for 5 to move within 11 hits of 3,000.

Alex Rodriguez slid both hands into the pockets of his black jeans and smiled. "I showed them, didn't I?" he said before cracking a smile and laughing. Once again, a team intentionally walked Mark Teixeira to pitch to A-Rod. Once again, A-Rod came up with a big hit, even though this one didn't go very far. After Derek Jeter tied the score with a two-run single, Rodriguez followed Teixeira's walk with a 55-foot, six-hop single that put the New York Yankees ahead during an eight-run seventh inning yesterday that led them over the Mets, 9-3. Back in first place in the AL East, the Yankees took two of three at Yankee Stadium from their crosstown rivals, bouncing back after losing the opener.

Eric Hosmer and Melky Cabrera homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Yankees, 11-5, last night, sending New York to its first home series loss of the season. Robinson Cano homered a day after he was hit in the head with a pitch, and Alex Rodriguez homered for the first time in 65 at-bats. Sean O'Sullivan (2-2) retired his first 13 batters before running into trouble, but pitched into the seventh to give Kansas City its eighth win in 12 games, and knock the Yankees out of first for the first time since April 13. New York lost for the sixth time in nine games and slipped a game behind Tampa Bay just as the archrival Boston Red Sox prepared to come to town for three games.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Derek Jeter homered twice after going 62 games without a long ball and Curtis Granderson went deep again as the New York Yankees beat the Texas Rangers, 12-5, on Sunday despite an erratic outing by CC Sabathia. Jeter had gone 259 at-bats without a homer (since Aug. 24 of last season) before leading off the fifth with a liner that barely cleared the eight-foot wall into the Rangers' bullpen in right-center. Jeter didn't wait long for his next homer, leading off the seventh against Arthur Rhodes (1-2)
