Mets' K-Rod released without bail

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was released without bail Thursday and ordered to stay away from his girlfriend's father after allegedly attacking the man outside a family lounge at Citi Field Wednesday night. Rodriguez was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, which led to the team suspending him. He is on the restricted list without pay for two days, costing him $125,683.

 

Rodriguez, 28, is accsued of grabbing 53-year-old Carlos Pena, hitting him in the face and banging his head against a wall following the Mets' 6-2 loss to the Rockies.

 

"Ownership and the organization are very disappointed in Francisco's inappropriate behavior and we take this matter very seriously," Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said.

 

Rodriguez, who signed a $37 million, three-year contract with the Mets in 2008 after saving a record 62 games for the Angels, is 4-2 with 25 saves and a 2.24 ERA...

Papelbon blows save, Blue Jays walk off
By: DJ Bean

Jonathan Papelbon had his sixth blown save of the season and first in 25 career opportunities against the Blue Jays in a 6-5 loss in Toronto on Thursday.

 

The Blue Jays entered the inning trailing 5-2, but were able to muster four runs off Red Sox pitchers. John Lackey pitched eight-plus innings and allowed three runs on the day. Jose Bautista hit Lackey's 98th pitch to left for his 36th homer of the game. The shot made it a two-run game and chased Lackey from a start in which he gave up eight hits, walked one, and struck out four.

 

Later in the inning, Edwin Encarnacion hit a game-tying two-run double off Papelbon and Fred Lewis hit a sacrifice fly to center off Daniel Bard to give the Blue Jays the walkoff win. Papelbon took the loss and fell to 4-5 on the season.

 

David Ortiz and Jed Lowrie each hit solo shots for the Red Sox in the loss. For the complete recap, see...

Mets' K-Rod arrested for assaulting in-law

Following a scuffle with his father-in-law at Citi Field late Wednesday night, Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was charged with third-degree assault, according to police.

 

The altercation resulted in Rodriguez' arrest and holding at the ballpark early Thursday, while his father-in-law landed in a hospital with a scraped face and a bump on his head.

 

Several security guards, as well as women and children, were around the the clubhouse after the Mets lost to the Rockies, 6-2, when Rodriguez' father-in-law was identified with a swelling over his right eyebrow. Rodriguez did not pitch in the loss, which dropped the Mets below .500.
