    A-Rod: 'I'm fighting for my life'

    CHICAGO -- Alex Rodriguez stepped up to the plate greeted by a standing boo-vation and blooped a single in his first at-bat of the season. Hours after Major League Baseball suspended the New York Yankees star through the 2014 season in the Biogenesis drug case, Chicago White Sox fans got their say Monday night. And, boy, did they let him hear it. They jeered him during pregame warmups and introductions, and they really tore into him when he walked to the batter's box leading off the second inning.

Frazier, acquired by the Yankees last week as part of a major deal with the Chicago White Sox, came up with the bases loaded in the second inning Tuesday night and proceeded to bounce into a triple play against the Cincinnati Reds. With rookie Reds starter Luis Castillo on the mound at Yankees Stadium, Matt Holliday singled to right, Didi Gregorius singled to right, and Chase Headley singled to left to load the bases in the second. Frazier, batting seventh, hit a bouncer to shortstop, leading to a double play. Gregorius then got stuck in a rundown and was tagged out.? It went
