The Yankees' surge up the standings continued on Tuesday, with a little spice thrown into the mix. Alex Rodriguez was hit in the leg on the first pitch he saw in the third inning, setting off two separate bench-clearing incidents. No one was ejected at the time, but Roger Clemens was tossed after hitting Alex Rios in the seventh.
