(Game #23's)

Pudge Rodriguez hit a two-run homer to tie it up 5-5 in the 7th.

LP- Carleton (2-3)

The Rangers trailed 5-1 after 5 innings, the clouds got darker, the Rangers offense took the lead 6-5 on a RBI single by Todd Zeile -- making the Cardinals go to the bullpen & while Jim Lindsey was getting a last few warm up pitches, the sky opened up & mother nature took over. Game called, far enough along to lock up a strange victory for the Rangers.

The Padres erupt for 8 runs during the top of the 7th, including a three-run HR by Ken Caminiti as the Padres keep rolling with their 6th straight victory & only trail first-place 1998 Yankees by a game.

WP- Neagle (3-1)
LP- Shocker (2-3)

Denny Neagle kept the Yankees on their heals, allowing only 3 hits in eight innings. Andruw Jones keeps his hot hitting of late going with a 2-for-5 day, that included a double & RBI triple. Javy Lopez added three hits with a solo HR, for a total of 2 RBI. Babe Ruth got both of the Yanks' ribbies, one that included a solo HR off of Neagle during the bottom of the 7th.

WP- Boddicker (2-2)
LP- F.Green (0-3)
SV- Tp.Martinez (5)

The Orioles avoided their fourth straight loss with an excellent outing by Mike Boddicker, as Boddicker struck out 10 Pirates, allowing only 3 hits & no walks in seven innings. Gary Roenicke (off the DL for two days now) provided the go-ahead solo HR during the top of the 8th. Bill Virdon & Roberto Clemente provided both of their team's runs on solo HR's as well.

WP- W.Hernandez (2-0)
LP- Kuzava (3-1)

The Tigers finally get a win in the series, as Kirk Gibson (who has a flair for the dramatics) broke a 2-2 tie during the top of the ninth with a two-run blast into the right field stands at Old Yankee Stadium; Rupert Jones added a two-run pinch-hit single to widen the gap, 6-2. Billy Martin for the 1953 Yankees, has shown an unusual amount of power in a short span this season -- hitting his 5th HR & 24th RBI already during the season. Dave Rozema will start for the first time this season for the 4th & final game, due to the injury to Juan Berenguer.

1937 Giants      9   12   0
1962 Dodgers   2    8    1     F

New York (8-15) / Los Angeles (7-16)

WP-Schumacher (2-4)
LP- S.Williams (0-2)

Stan Williams got rocked, allowing 5 hits & 9 walks in 4 1/3 innings; Williams, who usually pitches in the fourth slot of the rotation, got bumped up a slot due to the Dodgers resting Sandy Koufax this series. Joe Moeller will get his first start of the season against the Giants' Harry Gumbert in the final upcoming game of the series.

The Dodgers allowed 23 base runners, as the Dodgers' pitching troubles continue and their team ERA inflates to a whopping 5.43!
