The MLB Report / Scores and fast facts

New York Yankees: Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning for New York, which defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-1. CC Sabathia held the Phillies to one run, Jimmy Rollins' first homer, in 6 2/3 innings.

Chicago White Sox: Starter Jake Peavy has been shut down with what doctors believe is rotator cuff tendinitis. Peavy met with the team doctors Sunday, and they prescribed anti-inflammatory medication a day after he pitched 5 2/3 innings against Oakland. He also had been battling flu-like symptoms late last week. Peavy said the next 48 hours will likely determine whether he starts Thursday as scheduled.

Cleveland Indians: Grady Sizemore made two quick outs but wore a big smile after the Indians' 5-3 win over an Arizona Diamondbacks split squad. The three-time AL All-Star played for the first time since May. He had microfracture surgery on his left knee June 4. Cleveland shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left with a cramp behind his right knee.

New York Mets: Chris Young pitched six scoreless innings before the Florida Marlins rallied for a 5-0 win. Young, pegged as New York's No. 4 starter, has allowed three runs in 20 1/3 innings this spring.

Atlanta Braves: Chipper Jones went 3 for 3 to raise his average to .420, Wilkins Ramirez had a tiebreaking two-run double in the seventh inning and the Braves beat a Houston Astros split-squad, 5-3.

Baltimore Orioles: Brian Roberts played for the first time in two weeks, going hitless in two at-bats in a 9-8 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Roberts had been sidelined since March 7 with back spasms. He handled second base without problems, including a double play in the fourth inning.
