Never too many So nobody but the best team in baseball wanted Bartolo Colon? As if the Red Sox didn't have enough going for them - even before their two grand slams yesterday - they called up the former Cy Young Award winner, out of the majors since an elbow injury last season, and Colon pitched five innings Wednesday against Kansas City, giving up two runs in a 6-3 win. Colon is the eighth pitcher to start for Boston this season. "We say it all the time. If you think you [only]

A day after the Yankees clinched a playoff berth, Phil Hughes kept alive New York's slim hopes in the American League East. The rookie righthander allowed four hits in seven innings, and Jose Molina delivered a two-run single last night to lead the visiting Yankees over Tampa Bay, 3-1. Joba Chamberlain pitched on consecutive days for the first time, striking out B.J. Upton to escape a jam with runners at first and second in the eighth inning....

David Ortiz, Mike Lowell, Jason Bay, Jason Varitek, Kevin Youkilis and, finally, Jacoby Ellsbury. Home run by home run, the visiting Boston Red Sox pulled within .002 percentage points of first place in the American League East with a 13-5 victory over the division-leading Tampa Bay Rays last night. All totaled, they hit six homers, the most since they hit six on Aug. 3, 2003. The defending World Series champions won for the first time in seven games at Tropicana Field this season.

In the Yankees' bullpen, Mariano Rivera was using a heat pack to keep warm. "It's cold out there," Rivera said. With two outs in the top of the ninth inning and the score tied at 4-4, Johnny Damon singled to left field off Phillies reliever Brad Lidge. That was when Rivera rose to his feet. Both developments spelled doom for the Phillies. The Yankees rallied for three runs off Lidge, and Rivera closed the door with his record-setting 11th save in World Series play as New York took a 7-4 victory in Game 4. "Those guys are the best," Rivera said of the Yankees' hitters.

Joba Chamberlain went home to Nebraska over the All-Star break. He played with his 3-year-old son and just stayed away from baseball for a while. "Probably the best 4 days I've had in my life," he said. It also turned out pretty well for the New York Yankees. Chamberlain won for the first time in almost a month and the Yankees got home runs from Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez in a 2-1 victory over visiting Detroit yesterday, completing a three-game sweep of the AL Central leader.

The long-term role for New York Yankees righthander Joba Chamberlain has not been determined. New York general manager Brian Cashman yesterday didn't commit to or rule out Chamberlain getting an opportunity to be in the rotation next season. Chamberlain was moved into a relief role Thursday when he lost out to Phil Hughes in the fifth starter competition. Cashman said his focus is on this season and that there have been no decisions made on Chamberlain's status for 2011. "We haven't had any team meetings and said, 'All right, he's a reliever for the rest of his life.

Andy Pettitte became the latest aging, aching star on the Yankees. The lefthander had to leave his start against the Orioles after five innings yesterday, and New York's depleted bullpen - missing Mariano Rivera - almost coughed up a five-run lead before finally closing out Baltimore, 7-5, to finish a three-game sweep. The 37-year-old Pettitte felt stiffness above his elbow and in the back of his pitching arm. He went to the hospital for an MRI that showed mild inflammation of his elbow.

Yankees newcomer Brian McCann knocked a solo homer against Detroit in Lakeland, Fla., on Friday, while Joba Chamberlain watched his former team beat up on his new club. "I don't know if I've ever hit a home run this early in camp," said McCann, who left the Atlanta Braves for an $85 million, five-year deal with New York. "I don't know if it's a good sign or a bad sign. " McCann's blast was the only hit Detroit starter Max Scherzer allowed in two innings, but three more home runs led to a 7-4 Yankees win. Chamberlain did not pitch, but he noticed some changes that have come with switching teams.

What was already a bad time for umpires got worse Saturday when one of them walked a batter on just three called balls. It happened in Kansas City with two outs in the fifth inning. Royals batter Lorenzo Cain was awarded first base on the seventh pitch of his at-bat after the Yankees' Andy Pettitte buried a pitch in the dirt. Home-plate umpire Mark Wegner called ball four. Yankees manager Joe Girardi disagreed, setting off a controversy. "We thought in the dugout it was 2-2," he said.

KEVIN YOUKILIS agrees with Joba Chamberlain: Any tension between the new teammates is in the past. Youkilis took part in his first workout with the New York Yankees on Thursday and addressed past feuding with Chamberlain over tight fastballs. After Youkilis agreed to join the Yankees, the reliever left him a voice mail. Chamberlain said in January he had not heard back, then revealed earlier this month he had received a text. "You guys have written a lot about it, and I think it's just something you guys keep going on and on about," Youkilis told reporters Thursday.

Once Nick Swisher got the signs down, he delivered the big hit that helped the New York Yankees complete a three-game sweep. Swisher hit a three-run homer after mistakenly thinking he was supposed to bunt, to help A.J. Burnett snap an 11-start winless streak on the road as the Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics for the 10th straight time, 4-2, yesterday. The big blow came in the fourth inning when Swisher showed bunt against Gio Gonzalez for the first two pitches with runners on first and second and no outs.

NEW YORK - A healthy Curtis Granderson helped give the Yankees their earliest home win ever. Granderson hit a go-ahead homer leading off the seventh inning, and Mark Teixeira had a three-run shot off Justin Verlander, lifting New York over the Detroit Tigers, 6-3, on Thursday in the first March opener in the Bronx. "It was great - except for the weather," said Granderson. CC Sabathia pitched six workmanlike innings, Derek Jeter added a sacrifice fly in the seventh using his new stride-less swing, and Mariano Rivera earned his first save and 560th of his career.
