Wade Davis threw a complete-game shutout for his first major league victory Thursday, bringing Tampa Bay a 3-0 victory over Baltimore. The four-hit performance by Davis provided a bright spot in an otherwise dismal late-year slump that had seen the Rays lose 13 of 14 games. Davis (1-0), who spent most of the season with Class AAA Durham, threw seven innings in his major league debut last week. He did not figure in the decision in that game, then gave up eight runs in just 2 2/3 innings in a...

Yankees catcher Jorge Posada and Toronto pitcher Jesse Carlson received three-game suspensions Wednesday for their parts in a benches-clearing incident. During Tuesday's 10-4 Toronto rout, Posada elbowed Carlson after he scored on Brett Gardner's double in the bottom of the eighth. During the at-bat, Carlson threw behind Posada, continuing a pattern of seemingly errant pitches by both clubs. Carlson later said something Posada didn't like, and when Posada ran towards him, both benches...

A brawl between Yankees and Blue Jays players cleared the benches Tuesday before Toronto went on to win 10-4. New York's Mark Melancon hit Aaron Hill in the back with a pitch in the eighth inning. Jesse Carlson retaliated by throwing behind Jorge Posada in the home half. Posada drew a walk and eventually scored on Brett Gardner's double. As Posada was crossing home, he brushed past Carlson. Then Carlson said something to Posada, who rushed back, and the benches cleared. Yankees manager Joe...
