Real quickly, with more coming later…

• Mark Teixiera has a Grade 1 strain of his left calf. He felt it on that foul ball in the fourth, tried to stay in the game and knew he was legitimately hurt while he was running the bases. “It could be seven days, it could be two weeks,” he said. Derek Jeter had a Grade 1 calf strain last season.

• Alex Rodriguez has been cleared to take batting practice tomorrow.

• Andy Pettitte will throw another flat ground tomorrow, and if that goes well, he could progress to a mound.

• Everyone seemed to be in agreement that Jayson Nix did the right thing on that groundball in the 11th. “He didn’t have time to look the runner back,” Girardi said. “It was just a great baserunning play by McCoy.”

• Rafael Soriano did not speak to the media after tonight’s game.
