Chipper Still Ailing

MIAMI (AP) - Chipper Jones will miss the rest of the World Baseball Classic because of a strain in his right side.

Jones, who is 0-for-10 with six strikeouts in the WBC, was scratched from Sunday's game against the Netherlands after he aggravated the injury. He planned to return to the Atlanta Braves' camp in Kissimmee for treatment.

Jones left last Sunday's game against Venezuela after five innings because of the injury. He missed a game Wednesday and went 0-for-3 Saturday in an 11-1 seven-inning loss to Puerto Rico that left the Americans one defeat from elimination.

He was replaced as the designated hitter Sunday by Derek Jeter.
