The frightful Yankee Stadium episode Wed. in which a little girl was injured by a foul ball calls to mind the ongoing concerns of Mandy Coolbaugh, whose husband Mike -- a minor league first-base coach -- was killed 7/22/07 on a liner that struck him in the neck. She says when she and their two toddler sons attended Mike's games, he insisted that they stay in an area with protective netting and that she advocates extending netting at ballparks.

The Dodgers had a chance to clinch the NL West on Wednesday, but instead suffered a third straight loss to the lowly Phillies, who will go for the series sweep on Thursday. The Dodgers are 5-20 over their past 25 games and their magic number remains at two. The Red Sox did clinch at least a wild-card spot with their win and the Angels' loss. Other magic numbers: Red Sox: 8 (to win AL East) Cubs: 8 (to win NL Central) Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card)

Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Austin Seferian-Jenkins' DUI arrest while playing for Tampa Bay. The Jets' tight end, coming off a two-game suspension stemming from the arrest, says he has gone 242 days without alcohol. He hopes his story can serve as an example to others.

Judge hits 45th HR; Gregorius passes Jeter

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "got to get in a little better shape. That's to be expected with two weeks off, but he'll get going." Bowles said it's too early to say for sure that Seferian-Jenkins will be active on Sunday against the Dolphins. It would be a surprise if he's not. The Jets have four other tight ends on the roster, but three are dealing with injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from a two-game suspension.

Three offensive starters missed practice for the Jets -- RG Brian Winters (abdomen), WR Robby Anderson (knee) and TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow). They're banged up at tight end, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to play this week after a two-game suspension. Winters bears watching because the right guard draws Ndamukong Suh. DE Mo Wilkerson said he's not concerned about his shoulder.
