BOSTON No baseball and no fights. But plenty of rain, fines, apologies and finger-pointing at Fenway Park.
Game 4 of the AL championship series was rained out Sunday, giving the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox a day to reflect on the nastiness of their basebrawl game the day before.
Boston's Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez were fined for their roles in the main melee, along with New York's Karim Garcia and Don Zimmer, the 72-year-old coach thrown to the ground by Martinez.
''I'm embarrassed at what happened,'' Zimmer said, fighting back tears. ''I'm embarrassed for the Yankees, the Red Sox, the fans, the umpires and my family.''
The best-of-seven series resumes Monday night, with the Yankees ahead 2-1 after their 4-3 victory Saturday. The fifth game will be Tuesday at Fenway Park, and a sixth game, if needed, would be Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.
