Jeter's HBP act doesn't bother Maddon

NEW YORK -- Rays manager Joe Maddon said he has been amazed by the aftermath of Derek Jeter's antics on Wednesday, when the Yankees' captain acted as though he was hit by a pitch in Tampa Bay's 4-3 win at Tropicana Field.

"I really was quite amazed about the fallout from that," Maddon said. "He didn't do anything wrong. He got away with it, which he should try to do, and he did. And that's all there is to it. He did what he had to do.

"I, in turn, did what I had to do, and the end result, it all worked out well. I was really kind of amused by the whole thing. I thought it was over the top."
