It will be a Dutch treat for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic - the only games that count for anything right now - after Wandy Rodriguez pitched six scoreless innings and three relievers completed a three-hitter in a 2-0 win over Puerto Rico in Miami on Saturday. Carlos Santana homered in the fifth and Francisco Pena knocked in an insurance run with a single in the eighth for the Dominicans. Both teams had already qualified for the semifinals in San Francisco, and were playing for seedings.

A PERSON familiar with the deal told the Associated Press that free-agent outfielder Jason Bay reached a 1-year contract with the Seattle Mariners. Bay, 34, is hoping to resurrect his career with the Mariners after three disappointing and injury-plagued seasons with the New York Mets. Last month, Bay and the Mets agreed to terminate his contract with 1 guaranteed year remaining on his $66 million, 4-year contract. The agreement let the Mets spread out the $21 million they still owed him. Bay hit .165 with eight home runs and 20 RBI last season.

David Wright and the New York Mets agreed Friday to a $138 million, eight-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press. The deal, the richest in franchise history, replaces Wright's $16 million salary for next season and includes $122 million in new money, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not yet final. A homegrown fan favorite and the face of the franchise, Wright is the club's career leader in several major offensive categories including hits, RBIs, runs and walks.

NEW YORK - Less than a week ago, as the Phillies embarked on this seven-game road trip through Houston and New York, manager Charlie Manuel declared that his team was "dead in" the middle of the National League race for the second wild card. After losing three of four to the Astros, the declaration was altered to "we're not dead yet. " It seems inevitable that some team is going to eventually serve as the anvil that crushes the Phillies' faded playoff hopes. Some would argue that is exactly what the Astros did over the weekend.

GIO GONZALEZ earned his big league-leading 19th victory and the visiting Washington Nationals backed him with three home runs to beat the listless New York Mets, 5-1, Monday night. Kurt Suzuki put the Nationals ahead with a home run in the third inning right after catcher Kelly Shoppach dropped his foul popup for an error. Four batters later Ryan Zimmerman launched a two-run shot, and Ian Desmond added a two-run drive in the fourth. That was plenty for Gonzalez (19-7) and the team with the best record in the majors.

This should have been a nice story about how Kyle Kendrick's resurgence continued with a fourth straight outstanding start. This could have been a happy account of Kevin Frandsen's continued success as the Phillies' fill-in third baseman. Instead, the Phillies' 3-2 victory that allowed them to salvage the final game of their series with the New York Mets will most be remembered for the benching of shortstop Jimmy Rollins. It was, in fact, the subject that dominated manager Charlie Manuel's postgame news conference.

Oh, to be Mike Trout. The Los Angeles Angels' rookie sensation, from Millville, turned 21 on Tuesday and is having a season for the ages - one that could make him the first player to be named both rookie of the year and most valuable player in the same season since Boston's Fred Lynn in 1975. On Monday night against Oakland, Trout went 2 for 3 and stole three bases. Going into Tuesday night's game, he was hitting .348 with a 1.009 OPS. He has 19 homers and 59 RBIs, and has stolen 36 bases while being caught only three times (keep in mind he started the season in the minors)
