Girardi 'didn't really care for' Ortiz' bat flip

NEW YORK -- Speaking after his team's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he had an issue with David Ortiz' bat flip following the designated hitter's fifth-inning, two-run homer off New York pitcher Hector Noesi.

"I didn’t really care for it," Girardi said. "I don’t know if he was upset that he missed some pitches earlier. I’ve got a young kid on the mound. I didn’t know if he was upset that he came in hard on him. Of course when it happens to you, you’re going to defend your guy. If it’s our guy, I’m going to say there was nothing intentional about it."

Noesi said that he didn't notice how Ortiz reacted following the home run, and Girardi admitted that his reaction stemmed mostly from looking out for his 24-year-old rookie hurler.

"David has always played the game hard. I’ve never had a problem with David Ortiz," Girardi said. "...

Papelbon: Credit for record goes to Mariano

NEW YORK -- Jonathan Papelbon became the fastest player to accumulate 200 saves, Tuesday night, notching the save with a one-inning, one-run outing in the Red Sox' 6-4 win over New York at Yankee Stadium.

Papelbon reaches the milestone in 359 appearances, surpassing the previous mark set by Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, who needed 382 games to make it to 200 saves.

"I'm' excited about it," said Papelbon, who struck out Alex Rodriguez -- the potential game-tying run -- to collect his 12th save of the season. "It's something that I take pride in. This game will definitely hold an extra little special something in my heart."

After the game, Papelbon went out of his way to credit the closer on the other side of the diamond Tuesday night, Rivera, in making the feat possible.

"I think I've said this 100 times, I've always called him the godfather. And that's what he is, he's the godfather of this role and the's the...

Jenks to undergo MRI after muscle spasms

NEW YORK -- Bobby Jenks explained the back injury which forced him from his appearance at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night stemmed from muscle spasms that give him "fits every now and then." It is an injury, the pitcher said following the Red Sox' 6-4 win over the Yankees, that first cropped up in the minor leagues and reappears sporadically.

"It's just from pitching," said Jenks, who left the game after throwing just four pitches in the seventh inning. "It's literally a muscle that's about this big, and I tore it a bunch of years ago. It's one of those things that just comes and goes every now and then. It's on my left side, right behind my left [scapula]."

Jenks said the plan is for him to receive an MRI Wednesday, although he views the procedure as nothing more than precautionary.

"I think it’s for their own benefit," Jenks said. "When this did happen, it acts up and then two or three days...

Dirk and Dallas even NBA finals at two

Dirk Nowitzki shook off illness and scored 10 points down the stretch to help lift Dallas to an 86-83 win over Miami Tuesday night and tie the NBA finals at two games each. The Mavericks went on a 21-9 run over the final 10 minutes to take the win, and were bolstered by Nowitzki, who ended up with 21 points on the evening. Dwyane Wade had 32 points for the Heat, but couldn't control the ball in an inbounds play with 6.7 seconds left. Miami's Mike Miller recovered, but his 3-point attempt at the buzzer was off the mark. Game 5 is Thursday in Dallas.

Ellsbury, Ortiz go deep; Sox sink Yanks

NEW YORK -- Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run and the Red Sox never looked back, claiming a 6-4 win over the Yankees Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox (34-26) are now tied with the Yankees (33-25) for first-place in the American League East.

Ellsbury's homer set the stage for a three-run first inning against New York starter Freddy Garcia, who lasted just 1 2/3 innings. Also coming up with key hits in the first frame were Adrian Gonzalez, who tripled home Dustin Pedroia, and Kevin Youkilis (sacrifice fly). After the Yankees responded with one run in the first off Sox starter Jon Lester, the visitors came right back with another run in the second when Pedroia doubled in Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Lester rebounded from his worst start of the season, giving up three runs over six innings, striking out five and walking one. Relievers Bobby Jenks, Matt Albers, Daniel Bard, and Jonathan Papelbon closed it out for the Red Sox. Jenks...
