TEMPE, Ariz. - The most interesting spring development regarding the Angels on Sunday happened in Florida, where Curtis Granderson of the New York Yankees suffered a broken arm. Granderson is not expected to return until May, so might the Yankees fill the void by taking Vernon Wells off the Angels' hands? Probably not. However, Wells was well aware of the Granderson injury by the time he spoke with reporters midway through the Angels' Cactus League game against the Oakland Athletics.

CHICAGO -- DeWayne Wise hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers, 11-7, to complete a doubleheader sweep after the bullpen blew a seven-run lead Sunday night. The White Sox won the first game, 4-2, behind right-hander Javier Vazquez's 7 2/3 scoreless innings. They appeared on their way to an easy win in the second game after taking a 7-0 lead. Jim Thome hit his 539th home run and Brian Anderson also hit a home run against left-hander Kenny Rogers, but the White Sox relievers imploded after left-hander John Danks pitched six scoreless innings.

However, Wells was well aware of the Granderson injury by the time he spoke with reporters midway through the Angels' 7-5 Cactus League loss to the Oakland Athletics. Wells reached base in each of his two plate appearances, once on an infield single and the other on an error, and stole a base.

The Yankees did not have a change of heart overnight. Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson were out of the lineup Wednesday night for Game 4 of the American League championship series against the Detroit Tigers. That game was postponed due to rain, but Manager Joe Girardi has opted to go with the same card when the game is made up Thursday afternoon. That leaves Rodriguez on the bench for the third time in nine postseason games. It also means that the highest-paid player in baseball won't be starting for the Yankees in an elimination game.

Justin Verlander kept the Detroit Tigers on top in the American League Central, pitching eight innings in a 6-5 win Tuesday over the Minnesota Twins that salvaged a split of a day-night doubleheader.

Verlander (18-9) gave up four runs and eight hits. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 36th save in 37 chances, overcoming some shaky defense that allowed Minnesota to pull within a run.

NEW YORK - The New York Yankees dialed long distance again Saturday as Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson each clubbed two-run home runs off Angels starter Jerome Williams in a 5-3 victory at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees, who have won 17 of their last 22 games against the Angels in the Bronx, lead the major leagues with 138 home runs, and of the 423 runs they have scored on the season, 218, or 51.5%, have come via the home run. The Angels scored twice in the top of the first when Mike Trout and Erick Aybar each singled, Mark Trumbo drew a two-out walk to load the bases and Alberto Callaspo lined a two-run single to right field.

LAKELAND, Fla. -- It's good to be Curtis Granderson. The Detroit Tigers center fielder is coming off a spectacular season in which he was mentioned in the same breath with Willie Mays and Ty Cobb. Unlike many baseball players, who skip college en route to the majors, the son of two teachers has two degrees. The 27-year-old Granderson is popular in the clubhouse and accommodates the masses outside of it by signing autographs incessantly, visiting schools, writing blogs and traveling the world as a Major League Baseball ambassador.

The expletive could be heard loud and clear. The clubhouse doors still were closed, but the four-letter frustration pierced the doors and echoed into the adjacent hallway. The Angels' bullpen collapsed again Sunday, this time in particularly horrifying fashion. The Angels took a one-run lead into the bottom of the eighth inning. Four walks, one brutal error and a grand slam later, they were losers. Clete Thomas hit the grand slam, powering the Detroit Tigers to a 9-6 victory at Comerica Park.

Given the depth and star power of the Yankees' lineup, you could probably argue for days over who was most responsible for getting New York to the postseason. But there's no debating who kept them there, with pitcher A.J. Burnett going 52/3 strong innings and center fielder Curtis Granderson saving at least four runs with a pair of great catches as the Yankees staved off elimination Tuesday with a 10-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 4 of the American League division series at Comerica Park in Detroit.

Garrett Richards was 12 pitches into his major league debut, with none out and the Angels' pitching coach heading to the mound. Richards had walked the first two batters, and Curtis Granderson was coming up. The 13th pitch was a wild pitch. Granderson hit the 14th pitch for a home run. Welcome to the big leagues, kid. "I didn't have butterflies or anything before the game," Richards said. "When you step on the mound, everything hits you at once. " The New York Yankees hit him, and hard.

Reporting from New York — This pennant race thing is new to so many of the Angels, including the kid closer that was not even in the major leagues this time last year. So, when Jordan Walden was in the middle of the play that clinched the Angels' 6-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday, exactly what was he thinking? "Oh crap," Walden said. He thought he had messed up. He had not. That fake-to-third, throw-to-first pickoff move, the one that never works?

This one was a delight for the second-guessers. The talk shows and the message boards no doubt lit up before the scoreboard did: Why did Mike Scioscia leave John Lackey in the game so long? There's no debate about the result. Lackey gave up back-to-back triples to start the seventh inning, sending the Detroit Tigers on the way to a 5-3 victory over the Angels Tuesday at Angel Stadium. The Angels lost for the fifth time in six games, and they have lost three consecutive games for the first time since June 20-22.

When Curtis Granderson was growing up in Chicago and imagining those backyard ninth-inning walk-off World Series homers, were the New York Yankees the hated opposition? "Really, there was no other team," he said. "I was playing for the Braves, but there was never another team. " Granderson is grown now and playing for the Yankees, not the Atlanta Braves. But he might have a chance to hit a walk-off home run in the World Series ? if the New Yorkers can survive the best-of-seven American League Championship Series that starts Friday against the Rangers in Arlington, Texas.
