"Uribe can't hit a guy who throws junk. And then he hits a triple against the toughest pitcher in baseball."

White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen after Juan Uribe struck out three times against the Yankees' Aaron Small, then tripled and scored the winning run in the 10th inning off Mariano Rivera


Blue Jays: RHP Roy Halladay will not return from the disabled list on Monday as planned and the team is unsure when he might be able to pitch again.

Halladay cut short a simulated game yesterday after three innings, saying he felt stiffness in his left leg, which was broken by a line drive last month. Toronto was hoping he would start against the Angels on Monday.

Also, LHP Ted Lilly, on the DL with biceps tendinitis, threw off a mound for the first time since leaving a game on July 24. He threw 40 pitches.


Rangers LHP Kenny Rogers, fresh off his suspension, was hammered for five runs in five innings and took a line drive off his right forearm in the first inning (X-rays taken later were negative) in a loss to the Red Sox.

Fenway Park fans were ready, with one holding up a sign during batting practice that said, "Kenny Should Play Nice." When he took the mound for the bottom of the first, he was jeered resoundingly.

Rogers's ERA, which had been second-best in the AL at 2.77, rose to 2.99.
