NEW YORK, N.Y. - The game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees was postponed by rain Tuesday night, delaying the renewal of their old October rivalry.
The game was called about 30 minutes before the scheduled first pitch. It will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday, with start times of 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m.
ATLANTA - Tim Lincecum isn't lacking confidence even if his statistics are below average.
"Every outing I go out there, I know I can take some positives from it and try not to lean on the negatives so much," he said, "because that kind of focus can lead to some compounding issues."
Lincecum lost his second straight start, and left fielder Andres Torres cost him an unearned run in the sixth inning of San Francisco's 3-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night.
ARLINGTON, Texas - Toronto manager John Gibbons knew Chien-Ming Wang could help the beaten up Blue Jays pitching staff. He just didn't think it would happen this soon.
Wang won for the first time in more than a year, Colby Rasmus homered for a third straight game, and the Blue Jays completed a four-game sweep by beating the Texas Rangers 7-2 on Sunday for their fifth straight victory.
ATLANTA - Freddie Freeman's bases-loaded, line-drive single off closer Sergio Romo capped a two-run rally in the ninth that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
B.J. Upton hit two homers off Chad Gaudin, but the Braves trailed 5-4 entering the ninth.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Tampa Bay right-hander Alex Cobb was taken off the field on a stretcher after he was hit on the right ear by a liner off the bat of Kansas City's Eric Hosmer in the fifth inning of the Rays' 5-3 win over the Royals on Saturday.
SAN ANTONIO - Tony Parker's hamstring, not Dwyane Wade's knee, is the current chief injury concern.
Manu Ginobili, not Chris Bosh, is mired in the slump of the moment.
Things change quickly at the NBA Finals, and with everything suddenly seeming right with the Miami Heat, it's up to the San Antonio Spurs to change them back Sunday night in Game 5.
ARLINGTON, Texas - Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey was feeling a bit nostalgic even without his best stuff. Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus just hit the ball hard.
Lind and Rasmus both hit two-run homers while Dickey worked into the sixth inning against his original team, as the Blue Jays stretched their winning streak to four games with a 6-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb was taken off the field on a stretcher after he was hit on the right ear by a liner off the bat of Kansas City's Eric Hosmer in the fifth inning of Saturday's game.
Cobb put a hand on his head after being struck. Trainers from both teams and other medical staff immediately ran onto the field.
ATLANTA - Madison Bumgarner allowed two hits in seven innings and combined with Sandy Rosario for a three-hit shutout in the San Francisco Giants' 6-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Bumgarner (6-4) was dominant in earning his second straight win. The left-hander did not allow a baserunner for 4 2-3 innings before losing his bid for a perfect game in the fifth and shot at a no-hitter in the sixth.
Bumgarner matched his season high with 10 strikeouts while walking one.
ARLINGTON, Texas - Even though Mark Buehrle has struggled for most of the season, the veteran left-hander is still enjoying plenty of success against the Texas Rangers.
Buehrle threw seven shutout innings, Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays handed the Rangers their fourth straight loss, 8-0 on Friday night.
