Antonio Bastardo had one bad inning. Cliff Lee had two bad innings. As a result, the Phillies suffered through one extremely bad day, and night, suffering a split-doubleheader loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays at Citizens Bank Park. Lee allowed three runs in the second inning and two in the sixth during the Phillies' 7-3 evening loss to the Rays. After Cole Hamels had thrown seven shutout innings in Game 1, Bastardo came on in the eighth and allowed two walks and Carlos Pena's three-run home run in a 3-2 defeat.

It was a #badloss, and the line of questioning afterward appealed to Charlie Manuel about as much as his late-inning bullpen bridge to closer Jonathan Papelbon. Already grumpy after watching Antonio Bastardo turn seven shutout innings from Cole Hamels into a 3-1 deficit in the top of the eighth inning, Manuel also had to answer for his own handling of the bench Sunday as the Phillies tried to rally in the bottom of the eighth in the first game of a doubleheader. "You guys ought to sit in the dugout with me and give me all the scenarios if you don't think I know them," the manager told reporters, mixing his Southern drawl with biting sarcasm.

MASCOTS ARE supposed to romp among the fans, kiss babies, flirt with the ladies and act silly. Someone, it seems, forgot to tell that to Raymond, the blue creature (he's supposed to be a sea dog) employed by the Tampa Bay Rays. On Wednesday, in a home game against the Orioles, a fan with a sick sense of humor handed Raymond a sign. The mascot looked it over and then held it up. Bad move. As you can see from the photo, it wasn't funny. Steve Irwin, you might remember, was better known as the host of "The Crocodile Hunter" TV show.

THE PHILLIES have signed veteran infielder Reid Brignac to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training. Brignac, who turns 28 in January, is a versatile, lefthanded-hitting reserve who provides inventory, not unlike the roles Michael Martinez and Pete Orr have held in the last few seasons. A former top prospect with the Tampa Bay Rays, Brignac hit .185 in 46 games with the Colorado Rockies and New York Yankees in 2013. Brignac is a career .221 hitter with a .573 OPS in 302 games with Tampa, Colorado and New York.

KEVIN YOUKILIS' teammates came to his defense Monday after Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine questioned his commitment to the game and then apologized to his third baseman. During an interview aired Sunday night on WHDH-TV, Valentine said he didn't think Youkilis was "as physically or emotionally into the game. " That drew a sharp response from Dustin Pedroia before Monday's 1-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. James Shields (2-0) allowed four hits in 8 2/3 innings, and the Rays beat the Red Sox in the annual Patriots' Day game to avoid a four-game sweep.

It took Oakland's Josh Reddick 82 games to hit five home runs. He doubled his season total in two, parking a couple in the Athletics' 5-4 win over Toronto on Saturday, one day after blasting three into the stands as the A's routed the Blue Jays, 14-6 on Friday night. The hirsute slugger, who has one of the best beards in sports this side of James Harden, matched the majors' record for homers over two games. Reddick, hitless in his previous 20 at-bats before the sudden power surge, had 32 dingers last year.

NEW YORK YANKEES third baseman Alex Rodriguez isn't ready to rejoin the team. The Yankees said Rodriguez has a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps muscle and won't be able to return this week in Texas, as had been planned. Instead, he will remain on the disabled list and return to Tampa, Fla., "for rest and treatment," the Yankees said in a statement issued before their game against the Red Sox last night in Boston. Rodriguez and manager Joe Girardi had said they were hoping he would return for tomorrow night's game against the Rangers.

The Curse of the Home Run Derby strikes again. Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes, who won the event during all-star festivities, was scratched from the Athletics' game against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night because of a sore left wrist. "It came up today in batting practice," A's skipper Bob Melvin said. "When he was taking some swings in the cage, he still felt it, so we pulled him out. " Cespedes hit 32 homers to win the Derby on Monday night at Citi Field in New York, something nobody except TV producers and Major League Baseball executives will remember.

The 54-year-old remained in jail yesterday afternoon on $11,880 bond. Officers found a pipe for smoking crack cocaine in Nixon's pants pocket and found a suspected crack rock in the driver's seat, the report says.

MLB announced Monday that he is recovering from an intestinal tear that forced him to make a sudden exit. There was no timetable for his return. The 50-year-old had been feeling ill before the game in New York. He was the plate ump and quickly left the field during the bottom of the first, hurrying through the Mets dugout. The game was delayed nine minutes and resumed with three men in blue.

THE RED SOX and Tampa Bay Rays were making their ways out of Fenway Park when two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon were heard at the stadium. The Red Sox beat the Rays, 3-2, Monday on an RBI double by Mike Napoli in the ninth inning on Monday in Boston's traditional Patriots' Day morning game. The game began at 11:05 a.m. and ended at about 2:10 p.m. A little less than an hour after that, about a mile away, the explosions from Copley Square could be heard by those in and around Fenway - but not in the clubhouses where the teams were getting ready to leave.
