ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive and taken off the field on a stretcher during Toronto's 6-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
The team said Happ was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was alert and undergoing tests. Nursing supervisor Natasha Keller told The Associated Press that Happ had been admitted to the hospital and was in stable condition.
"I think the last indication was that he was alert and feeling better and had gone for a CT scan. That's the last I heard," Toronto pitcher R.A. Dickey said.
In a frightening scene at Tropicana Field, Desmond Jennings' second-inning liner caromed off the left side of Happ's head with a loud "thwack!" that could be heard up in the press box.
The ball went all the way into the bullpen in foul territory halfway down the right-field line. Happ dropped face down at the front of the mound, holding his head with his glove and bare hand.
Jennings ended up on third base with a two-run triple. Team trainers, paramedics and medical officials rushed to Happ's aid as Tropicana Field fell into a hush.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies are still unsure how long they'll be without injured two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay.
Halladay, on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his throwing shoulder, met with Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles, but Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said he had yet to hear results of the examination.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Matt Kemp became an Internet sensation after an impromptu gesture he made toward a cancer-stricken Dodgers fan attending a game at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
The Dodgers' Gold Glove center fielder was informed of the disabled fan's plight by third base coach Tim Wallach during a 4-3 loss to the Giants on Sunday. After the game, Kemp went to the other side of the field with Wallach and met the fan and his father, who were sitting in the front row adjacent to the third base dugout.
The fan, whose name is Josh, appeared to be a teenager and was dressed in a hooded Dodgers sweatshirt. Kemp shook hands with him, autographed a ball and handed him his cap.
The video, which can be seen on YouTube, also shows Kemp pulling his jersey over his head and handing it to Josh -- along with his shoes -- while his friend Tommy was recording it on his cellphone.
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is retiring at the end of the season, bringing an end to more than 26 trophy-filled years at the club.
"The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about and one that I have not taken lightly," Ferguson said in a statement on Wednesday. "It is the right time."
The club did not immediately announce a successor.
Since taking charge at Old Trafford in 1986, Ferguson has established himself as the most successful manager in British football history, having reversed a previous plan to retire at the end of the 2001-02 season.

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns hired Boston Celtics executive Ryan McDonough as their next general manager.
The 33-year-old McDonough replaces Lance Blanks, who was fired on April 22 after failing to take the Suns to the playoffs in three seasons.
McDonough worked his way up from a 23-year-old special assistant to basketball operations in Boston to becoming assistant general manager the past three years.
McDonough helped the Celtics acquire All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo with a draft-day trade in 2006 and had a hand in pulling together the 2007-08 team that won the NBA championship.
His father, the late Will McDonough, was a long-time columnist for the Boston Globe. His brother, Sean, is an announcer for ESPN and another brother, Terry, is the former director of player personnel for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
