Joba Chamberlain Blows Up

Joba Chamberlain's first big league start was over almost as quickly as it began.
The star reliever got just seven outs in his much-ballyhooed move to the Yankees' rotation, coming out after he approached his pitch limit in the third inning. By then he'd walked four batters, given up a pair of runs and generally looked nothing like the shut-down reliever he has been. "I was mad at myself," Chamberlain said. "You know you've only got so many pitches and I didn't do a very good job of conserving those pitches." Roy Halladay held New York in check despite some control problems of his own, leading the Toronto Blue Jays to a 9-3 victory on Tuesday night.
