F-MCC baseball swept in Virgina

Monday, March 25, 2013 - Updated: 4:29 PM

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- The Fulton-Montgomery Community Colelge baseball team had a rough start to its southern swing, managing just six hits over two games Sunday in dropping both ends of a doubleheader to the Apprentice School.

The Raiders dropped Game 1 2-0, despite getting eight strikeouts over six strong innings from starting pitcher Matt Snyder. Shawn Strong had a base hit for F-MCC (1-5), which was shut out on two hits by the Builders' (23-4) Chris Perry.

In the second game, four F-MCC errors cost the Raiders in an 8-1 loss. Strong led the Raiders' offensive charge with two hits, including a double, while Kelvyn Vasquez chipped in a run-scoring single to produce F-MCC's only run of the day. Cody Norris scattered four hits to earn the complete game win for the Apprentice School.

Jeter expected to start season on DL

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Derek Jeter will likely join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the New York Yankees' star-studded disabled list for the season opener against the Boston Red Sox on April 1.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says it's "more likely than not" Jeter will start on the DL because of a sore left ankle, still recovering from surgery last October.

"April 1 is unrealistic in my mind now," Cashman said Sunday. "There's nothing new going on other than growing pains as he gets through these final hurdles of his rehab."

Eduardo Nunez, known for his bat more than his glove, would fill in at shortstop for the 13-time All-Star, who broke the ankle Oct. 13 during the AL championship series opener against Detroit and had surgery a week later.

The 38-year-old, who has repeatedly vowed to be ready for opening day, played in his first big league spring training game on March 9 as a designated hitter. He returned to shortstop four days later, then played consecutive games on March 15 and 16 before inflammation kept him out of the lineup.

He received an anti-inflammatory injection Wednesday and had four at-bats as a DH Saturday in a minor league exhibition game.

"I know Derek extremely well, and I can read his face," Cashman said. "And his face today tells me that the reality of his circumstances is starting to sink in, and the disabled list might be necessary. I told him what I think, and he didn't fight me on it. That's reality."

Yanks on verge of getting OF Wells

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Vernon Wells is on the verge of becoming the latest addition to the New York Yankees' injury-depleted lineup.

New York neared an agreement with the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday to acquire the 34-year-old outfielder, who has slumped since hitting 32 homers with 106 RBIs for Toronto in 2006.

"It'd be a huge change. I don't think it's ever easy saying goodbye, but at the same time, if this were to happen, it's a good group of guys over there," Wells said in Tempe, Ariz. "I'll just get to know a new family."
