DEREK JETER will be sidelined until after the All-Star break because of a new fracture in his broken left ankle - a blow to a New York Yankees team already reeling from injuries and one that raises long-term questions about the 38-year-old shortstop's future. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Jeter should be able to resume his rehabilitation when the new crack heals, in about 4 to 8 weeks. Cashman has repeatedly maintained the 13-time All-Star should be able to return at his previous level of play.

MIKE NAPOLI hit a three-run double in Boston's seven-run second inning and the Red Sox, playing with heavy hearts the day after the deadly bombings back home, beat the host Cleveland Indians, 7-2, on Tuesday night. Boston's players were already en route to Cleveland when they learned of the explosions near the Boston Marathon's finish line that killed three and injured more than 170. The Red Sox were hoping to bring some relief to those affected by the tragedy, and they may have while winning their fourth straight.

Rangers catcher Mike Napoli was a bit perturbed when Angels pitcher and former teammate C.J. Wilson put Napoli's phone number on Twitter. Wilson sent a tweet acting as if he was giving his former teammate his number, but instead posted an old phone number of Napoli's. Wilson then deleted the tweet and called it a prank. Later Wilson tweeted, "Okay I think we've all had a good time, I'm even with mike for saying he can't wait to hit homers off me. " Napoli said he hasn't spoken to Wilson since last season ended, adding that he thought picking up the phone would have been a better solution than going to Twitter.

Breaking news: The Yankees and Red Sox have wrapped up their three-game series. That's right - for the first time in modern memory, Boston and New York are not playing each other. OK, we exaggerate. But not by much. The three-game series took 11 hours, 36 minutes to complete, with the Bombers taking the series, two games to one, with a 4-2 win at Fenway that took 4 hours, 21 minutes on Thursday. (Comparison: On Monday, the Yanks put away the Orioles, 3-2, in a tidy 2:32.) The first two games of the series went 3:59 and 3:16, respectively.

IT STARTED with a bang and ended with a bummer. Let's just say that wasn't his name they were chanting when Raul Ibanez struck out to end yesterday's sweep-avoiding Boston victory at Citizens Bank Park. In the end, the big October preview series felt more like a matchup from March, at least until Ryan Howard's breathtaking ninth-inning blast off Bobby Jenks forced Boston manager Terry Francona to march out closer Jonathan Papelbon for the final two outs of yesterday's 5-2 loss, giving any remaining fans from the sellout crowd of 45,810 one last chance to lustily boo their least favorite manager.

BOSTON - Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart homered on consecutive pitches in the first inning to help the Milwaukee Brewers spoil Jon Lester's bid to become the major leagues' first 10-game winner in a 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night. Randy Wolf (5-4) battled through seven tough innings, and George Kottaras also hit a solo home run for Milwaukee, which won for just the second time in its last six games. Wolf scattered nine hits, walked one, and struck out three, ending a string of four consecutive no-decisions.
