Reporting from St. Petersburg, Fla. ? Like many challenges that Cliff Lee has encountered in his last two seasons, Texas' left-hander handled them with the tranquility of a big-game pitcher. Lee worked out of a first-inning bases-loaded jam Wednesday to further extend his distinction as one of baseball's clutch pitchers. Lee struck out Carlos Pena and Rocco Baldelli to end the threat, and then embarked on a seven-inning, no-walk, 10-strikeout performance that enabled Texas to cruise to a 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay and 19-game winner David Price in Game 1 of the American League division series.

CHICAGO -- With one big swing, Rocco Baldelli gave a big indication that he is finally feeling better. He hit his first home run in more than a year, Carlos Pena and Ben Zobrist also homered and the Tampa Bay Rays opened a weekend showdown against the Chicago White Sox with a 9-4 victory Friday night. "I just want to get back into the swing of things where I feel comfortable and it's not a big deal when I go through a game and do something well," said Baldelli, sidelined most of the last two seasons because of a muscular disorder and hamstring injuries.

Manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that the status of Baldelli and Delcarmen probably won't be determined until Thursday morning, when rosters for the first round of the playoffs must be submitted.
