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.

TORONTO - David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox are steamrolling that 0-6 start into irrelevance. Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis each homered and drove in four runs as the Red Sox teed off on the Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight day - beating them, 14-1, on Sunday for Boston's ninth straight win. "That's why everybody was going crazy when we were losing all those games at the beginning of the season," Ortiz said. "Because you go position by position, this team can match against anybody.

David Ortiz hit a two-run homer and Jonathan Papelbon labored through the ninth inning to earn his 200th save, leading the visiting Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees, 6-4, last night. Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run and Adrian Gonzalez hit an RBI triple as the Red Sox roughed up Freddy Garcia (4-5) early to move within two percentage points of the first-place Yankees in the AL East. New York first baseman Mark Teixeira left the game in pain after getting hit on the kneecap by a first-inning pitch from Jon Lester.

Bartolo Colon believes he's a better pitcher at age 38 after missing an entire season than he was during his harder-throwing, Cy Young award-winning days. He sure pitched that way against Oakland, throwing a four-hitter for his first shutout in nearly 5 years as the visiting New York Yankees beat the Athletics yesterday for the eighth straight time, 5-0. "I feel really strong physically and mentally right now," Colon said through an interpreter. "I feel really good right now. It doesn't matter that I'm 38 years old. I feel really good right now. " Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer off Trevor Cahill (6-3)
