  4. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 9, Red Sox 5

    Wallace Matthews

    BOSTON -- Derek Jeter's farewell to baseball was brief, effective and relatively satisfying: An impressive pregame ceremony, a good first-inning at-bat, an RBI single of a uniquely Jeterian variety in the third, and a graceful exit from the stage. ...

  6. Rapid Reaction: Red Sox 10, Yankees 4

    Wallace Matthews

    BOSTON -- Don't worry, Yankees fans, your suffering is almost over. One more game, and we can close the book on this disappointing 2014 season, in which the Yankees will wind up winning fewer games than the 2013 Yankees did, which is quite an indictm...

    Wallace Matthews

    BOSTON -- Derek Jeter is back in the lineup Saturday, no doubt to the relief of the Fenway Park crowd, which was denied the chance to see him play Friday night. As promised, he will not play shortstop but is in his familiar No. 2 spot in the batti...

  11. Derek Jeter conquers Fenway

    Wallace Matthews

  12. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 3, Red Sox 2

    Wallace Matthews

    Wallace Matthews

    BOSTON -- Lost in the whirlwind of Derek Jeter's final game at Yankee Stadium Thursday night was the reality that it might also have marked the Bronx finales for two other Yankees, Ichiro Suzuki and Hiroki Kuroda. Ichiro is not likely to be back -...

  16. Jeter: Play first, cry later

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- In his 20th season of major league baseball, Derek Jeter made a rookie mistake tonight, turning up in the overcrowded Yankees clubhouse about five minutes before it was to be closed to the media. So naturally, he was swarmed at his locker...
