After Wednesday night's shenanigans, one wouldn't be surprised if the ill will between these teams boiled into Thursday's game. Thus far, that hasn't been the case.

In fact, we saw a nice sign of sportsmanship in the bottom of the third. Ramiro Pena (pictured) grounded a 3-and-1 fastball to Miguel Cabrera, who picked it up and flipped to Rick Porcello, who was running over to cover the bag.

Pena and Porcello collided as Porcello made the out. Neither was injured and afterward they each pat each other on the back to show there were no hard feelings.

Nice to see the boys playing nicey.

Pena had an RBI triple Wednesday night and scored a run, but so far nobody has thrown at him.

*Porcello had a no-hitter going for 3 1/3 innings, but Mark Teixeira broke it up with a single to right. 

**In fact, the Yanks got four singles off Porcello in the fourth, including RBI base hits to center from Nick Swisher (70 RBIs) and Curtis Granderson (38).
