San Francisco slugger

Barry Bonds

said there was no need to address the comments

Curt Schilling

made about him last week.

"I'm too old for childish activities," the 42-year-old Bonds said yesterday.

The Boston Red Sox ace criticized Bonds on a radio talk show, saying the slugger has admitted using steroids and cheating on his wife and his taxes. He apologized to Bonds on his blog the next day.

Los Angeles Dodgers fan Matt Schaefer, 25, got a reward for a night of heckling Cincinnati Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. - a size-XXL jockstrap.

"He was just on me every time I came in," Griffey told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Him being a little larger than normal, I just asked, 'Shouldn't you be wearing a support bra?' "

Griffey had a clubhouse attendant round up the biggest athletic supporter he could find, then wrote "JR" and "3" on the waistband and tossed it in a bag to the startled Schaefer.

The Texas Rangers placed righthander Kevin Millwood on the 15-day disabled list, a day after he returned to the team and aggravated a hamstring injury that had kept him out for two weeks.

Righthander Byung-Hyun Kim, demoted to the minors by Colorado earlier this season, will move into the Florida Marlins' rotation and is expected to start Friday at Tampa Bay.

Ron Villone will join the New York Yankees' overworked bullpen, general manager Brian Cashman said.

Roger Clemens could pitch for the Yankees as early as May 28. Two starts in the minors would pit the 44-year-old against Toronto on May 28 or 29.
