Romero tweeting a different tune Toronto pitcher Ricky Romero did some griping Monday night after a 2-0 loss to Atlanta, so the Blue Jays did some talking before Tuesday night's game. Manager John Farrell said the Jays met to discuss Romero's remarks about his teammates. Farrell would not say whether he approached Romero or Romero approached him about speaking to the team before the game. Farrell told the Associated Press he thinks Romero recognized that some of his comments might have been misinterpreted, and he credited the lefthander for taking accountability.

The Yankees are still the favorites in the American League, but the Red Sox might have closed the gap by adding a stud starting pitcher. Or, if the guy's past performances are any indication, maybe they didn't. While we wait to see the October weather forecast for Minneapolis, here are some AL nuggets to chew on: 1. Ruben Amaro certainly doesn't enjoy the fact that Cliff Lee is battling an abdominal strain, but he probably doesn't mind how it has quieted those who criticized him for not keeping Lee and Roy Halladay.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - When Cliff Lee pitches at this point of the spring, no news is good news. In that sense, the Phillies have to be thrilled with his uneventful outing against the Blue Jays. The prized offseason free-agent acquisition pitched six ho-hum innings at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium yesterday and then pronounced himself eager to get the season started. "I'm there. I've basically got one more simulated game or something like that and then it's go-time. It's really winding down pretty quick now so I'm ready and anxious to get to Philly and get this thing going," he said after the Phillies' 5-4 win improved their Grapefruit League record to 17-9.

SHARP FROM HIS first pitch, Ervin Santana came full cycle against the Cleveland Indians. Santana threw the first solo no-hitter for the Angels in nearly 27 years and exacted some long overdue revenge, leading Los Angeles over the Indians, 3-1, yesterday. This was the first no-hitter at Cleveland's Progressive Field, a ballpark that opened as Jacobs Field in 1994. And it marked quite a bit of role reversal for the 28-year-old righty. Santana made his big-league debut on this very same field on May 17, 2005, and the Indians gave him a rude welcome.

THE YANKEES hit three home runs to help CC Sabathia halt a two-start losing streak and visiting New York defeated the depleted Minnesota Twins, 8-4, last night. The Twins were so shorthanded that catcher Joe Mauer played rightfield for the first time since he reached the majors. The Yankees lead the majors with 163 homers this season, despite only 13 from Alex Rodriguez, who has been out following knee surgery last month. Mark Teixeira hit his 33rd, a two-run shot in the third, and Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones hit back-to-back deep balls in the fifth inning against Brian Duensing (8-12)

Andy Pettitte hit the corners, Derek Jeter homered into the right-centerfield stands, Jorge Posada rambled into second base for a double. And for good measure, Mariano Rivera closed it out with a cutter. Don't tell the Yankees' core four it's 2010. The longtime All-Stars each picked up World Series ring No. 5, then led New York to a victory in its home opener yesterday, 7-5, over the Los Angeles Angels in front of a record crowd that included owner George Steinbrenner. "Everyone talks about how long we've been here but in our minds it seems like we are just still little kids," said Jeter, the American League Rookie of the Year in 1996.

FREDDY GARCIA returned from the disabled list to pitch six innings of two-hit ball, Nick Swisher homered and the visiting New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles, 3-2, last night earn a split of the four-game series. It was New York's second straight win without third baseman Alex Rodriguez and shortstop Derek Jeter. Rodriguez will join the team in Boston today after getting an MRI on his sore left thumb in New York, and Jeter rested a bruised right knee but was available "in case of an emergency," manager Joe Girardi said.

A TOUGH START to September is costing the Boston Red Sox a chance to catch the first-place New York Yankees. Now, as they head to Tampa Bay for a four-game set, the Red Sox must make sure they continue to keep the Rays at bay in the wild-card race. Ricky Romero won for the seventh time in nine starts, J.P. Arencibia hit a three-run homer and the host Toronto Blue Jays beat the Red Sox, 7-4, last night, Boston's seventh defeat in 10 games. The Red Sox dropped to 2-6 in September and failed to gain ground on the Yankees, who lost 5-4 in 10 innings to Baltimore earlier in the day. The Red Sox are 2 1/2 games behind New York with 19 left to play.

ATLANTA - Tim Hudson pitched eight scoreless innings and hit his second career home run in the Atlanta Braves' 2-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night. Hudson (6-6) allowed two hits, one walk and struck out a season-high eight, including the 1,600th of his career. He took Ricky Romero (6-7) deep to make it 2-0 with two outs in the sixth. Toronto has lost two straight and five of seven. Hudson retired 20 straight batters before Mike McCoy walked to lead off the ninth and advanced to second on Yunel Escobar's infield single.

Royals 3, Blue Jays 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jeff Francoeur drove in two runs, helping Luke Hochevar win for the first time in seven starts, and Kansas City survived Joakim Soria's shaky ninth to beat Toronto. It was just the Royals' fourth win in the 11-game stand at Kauffman Stadium. Soria, reclaiming the closer role he lost May 30 after back-to-back blown saves, loaded the bases in the ninth but got his eighth save in 13 opportunities. Hochevar (4-6) allowed two runs in the fourth but nothing else in seven innings.
