Glenallen Hill of the Toronto Blue Jays had a lot of explaining to do Saturday. Hill missed Toronto's 4-2 victory over Seattle because he injured himself Friday night trying to escape imaginary spiders in a nightmare. "I have a phobia about spiders," Hill said. "In the nightmare, I was trying to get away from spiders." Hill said he bounced off a wall and climbed up the 10 stairs in his apartment. "When I woke up I was on a couch and my wife, Mika, was screaming, 'Honey, wake up!' " he said.
