  • Yastrzemski has heart bypass surgery (AP)

    In this April 6, 2001 file photo, Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski waves as he is warmly received by the crowd moments before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the Boston Red Sox first home game at Boston's Fenway Park. Yastrzemski, the last player to hit for the Triple Crown, was hospitalized for tests Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008 after experiencing chest pains. The Red Sox confirmed the 68-year-old Yastrzemski was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital and was undergoing evaluation and testing.

    Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, the last player to hit for the Triple Crown, was resting comfortably Tuesday night after having triple bypass heart surgery. Yastrzemski, who turns 69 on Friday, had the operation at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he underwent tests after experiencing chest pains in the morning, said his spokesman, Dick Gordon.

  • Aybar rallies Rays past Angels 4-2 (AP)

    Los Angeles Angels pitcher Scot Shields, right, walks back to the mound with catcher Jeff Mathis after loading the bases with Tampa Bay Rays during the eighth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008, in St. Petersburg, Fla. Shields took the loss in the Rays' 4-2 win.

    One night the Tampa Bay Rays play long ball. The next they rarely get the ball out of the infield and still beat the Los Angeles Angels. The surging Rays won for the ninth time in 11 games Tuesday night, using Willy Aybar's two-run single to break an eighth-inning tie in a 4-2 win over the Angels that gave Tampa Bay the best record in the American League.

  • Trade sends Maddux back to Dodgers (AP)

    In this Aug. 15, 2008 file photo, San Diego Padres starter Greg Maddux pitches against the Philadelphia Phillies in the first inning of their baseball game, in San Diego. The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Maddux and cash from the San Diego Padres for two minor league players to be named later or cash, according to a report Tuesday Aug. 19, 2008.

    Greg Maddux is back with the Los Angeles Dodgers for another stretch drive following a 120-mile trip up the California coast. The Dodgers reacquired Maddux from the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, getting the future Hall of Famer and cash for two minor leaguers to be named or cash. "It's nice to be back," Maddux said with a smile.

  • Dice-K labors, but wins again for BoSox (AP)

    Boston Red Sox's Jacoby Ellsbury (46) steals second against Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts (1) during the eighth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008, in Baltimore. The Red Sox won 7-2.

    On a night in which he struggled to get through five innings, Daisuke Matsuzaka got offensive support from an unlikely source: batterymate Jason Varitek. Matsuzaka won his fourth straight start, the Boston Red Sox got homers from Varitek and Kevin Youkilis in a 7-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

  • Mets score 5 in 8th to rally past Braves (AP)

    New York Mets' Damion Easley follows through on a two-run single during the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008, in New York. The Mets won the game 7-3.

    The Mets got big hits with the bases loaded and their bullpen was outstanding, for a change. If they keep that up, they'll have a much better chance of hanging on in the NL East. Carlos Delgado hit a go-ahead double off the left-center fence to end New York's long stretch of bases-loaded futility, and the Mets broke loose in the eighth inning to rally past Atlanta 7-3 Tuesday night.

  • Harden leads surging Cubs over Reds 5-0 (AP)

    Chicago Cubs' Kosuke Fukudome, of Japan, watches his two-run single against the Cincinnati Reds in the eighth inning of a baseball game in Chicago,Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008. The Cubs won 5-0.

    Rich Harden's been as good -- maybe even better -- than the Chicago Cubs expected when they acquired him in a trade from Oakland six weeks ago. Harden allowed two hits in seven innings Tuesday night, striking out 10 and bunting in the go-ahead run for his first major league RBI as the surging Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0.

  • Twins' Slowey overwhelms A's with 12 Ks (AP)

    Oakland Athletics' Jack Cust strikes out against the Minnesota Twins in the fifth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008, in Minneapolis. Cust struck out three times in the Twins' 13-2 win.

    There are no 96 mph heaters from Kevin Slowey. No bat-breaking sliders or splitters that feel like bowling balls to opposing hitters. It's all about pitching smarts and location for the 24-year-old right-hander. Facing an Oakland Athletics lineup that is turning swinging and missing into an art form, that combination proved to be just as dominant on Tuesday night.

  • Phillies hand Nats 11th straight loss (AP)

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Joe Blanton throws in the first inning of a baseball game against the Washington Nationals, Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008, in Philadelphia. The Phillies won 5-4.

    Making Jayson Werth an everyday player might be what solves the Philadelphia Phillies' hitting troubles. Werth hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning to lift the Phillies over Washington 5-4 on Tuesday night, the Nationals' 11th straight loss. The losing streak is the longest for the Nationals since they moved to Washington before the 2005 season.

  • Cards' Isringhausen's season likely over (AP)

    Cardinals reliever Jason Isringhausen, twice demoted from the closer role this season, is likely out for the rest of the season with an elbow injury. The 35-year-old Isringhausen had an MRI on Tuesday. He left Busch Stadium after consulting with team medical personnel and before the Cardinals' 4-1 loss to the Pirates.

  • Dunn's homer helps Arizona beat Padres (AP)

    Arizona Diamondbacks' Mark Reynolds, top, chases San Diego Padres' Adrian Gonzalez in a run-down to prevent the tying run from scoring during the ninth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2008 in Phoenix. The Diamondbacks won 7-6.

    Adam Dunn confessed he had some jitters before taking the field for his home debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks. But any worries disappeared when Dunn hit his National League-leading 33rd home run, powering the Diamondbacks to a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. "It's a good feeling to have," Dunn said.
