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.

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.

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 start times for the remainder of the first round were announced tonight and the Phillies and Cardinals will play at 5:07 p.m. on Tuesday in Game 3 and 6:07 p.m. on Wednesday in Game 4, if necessary.

If Game 5 is needed, the Phillies would host an 8:37 start on Friday, if both NLDS go the distance.

The Cleveland Indians have agreed to terms with free-agent righthander Brett Myers on a one-year contract. Myers, who pitched for Houston and the Chicago White Sox last season, will get a chance to win a spot in Cleveland's starting rotation. His deal with the Indians includes a club option for 2014. It will not be finalized until he passes a physical. Myers went 3-4 with a 3.14 ERA in 35 relief appearances with the White Sox, who acquired him in a July trade with the Astros.

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 WAS a one-two punch. First, the Boston Red Sox lost, then Evan Longoria, seemingly knowing what was on the line, lifted the Tampa Bay Rays into the playoffs. The Rays clinched the AL wild card with a stunning rally last night, overcoming a late seven-run deficit, then beating the visiting New York Yankees, 8-7, on Longoria's home run in the 12th inning. The Rays' win came 4 minutes after Boston blew a one-run lead in the ninth at Baltimore and lost, 4-3. The Red Sox, who held a nine-game lead over the Rays in early September, and Tampa Bay began the final day of the regular season tied for the wild card.
