AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP : Bosio Out 6-8 Weeks, Breaks Collarbone

April 28, 1993|From Associated Press

Chris Bosio, making his first start since pitching a no-hitter, suffered a broken left collarbone but wound up the winner Tuesday night in the Mariners' 4-0 victory over Cleveland at Seattle.

Bosio's bid to duplicate Johnny Vander Meer's 1938 feat of consecutive no-hitters lasted all of one batter, when Kenny Lofton led off with a single.

Bosio is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks. His evening ended when he was run over by Jeff Treadway at first base while catching a double-play relay that ended the fifth inning.

A right-hander, Bosio landed on his left shoulder and was taken to Providence Hospital for X-rays.

Bosio (2-1) gave up three hits and extended his scoreless streak to 17 innings. Last Thursday at the Kingdome, he pitched the first no-hitter of the season and the second in Mariners' history when he beat Boston.

Kansas City 4, Detroit 3--Chico Lind singled through a drawn-in infield with one out in the 10th inning, as the Royals ended the Tigers' six-game winning streak.

The Royals, trailing 3-0, scored twice in the eighth inning and tied it in the ninth at Kansas City.

In the 10th, Wally Joyner drew a leadoff walk from John Kiely (0-2). Kevin McReynolds singled, and Mike Macfarlane sacrificed the runners to second and third. Lind singled up the middle on a full count.

Toronto 4, Texas 3--Pat Hentgen held Texas to three hits for eight innings and the Blue Jays beat Rangers for their fourth consecutive victory.

Hentgen gave up two runs, both on Dean Palmer's homer in the second inning. He walked none and struck out four at Toronto.

Duane Ward relieved to start the ninth inning, and Julio Franco homered with one out.

Chicago 9, Baltimore 4--Jack McDowell became the American League's first five-game winner, and Frank Thomas drove in four runs, sending the White Sox to the victory at Chicago.

Thomas, who had driven in three runs Monday against Baltimore, had three of Chicago's 18 hits. Lance Johnson had four hits and Joey Cora added three hits and scored four runs. Baltimore lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Milwaukee 3, Minnesota 2--Pat Listach went four for four and the Brewers handed Jim Deshaies his first loss, beating the slumping Twins at Milwaukee.

Listach had four singles, raising his average from .182 to .250, and also scored and drove in a run. The loss was Minnesota's fifth in a row.

Bill Wegman allowed eight hits over 7 1/3 innings. He got relief from Jesse Orosco, Mike Fetters and Doug Henry, who pitched the ninth inning for his fourth save.

Oakland 7, Boston 2--Mark McGwire hit two long home runs, and Ruben Sierra and Lance Blankenship got home runs on balls that glanced off outfielder's gloves as the Athletics sent the Red Sox to their sixth consecutive loss.

Bobby Witt pitched six innings and Goose Gossage worked two scoreless innings at Oakland for his first save since 1991 and the 309th of his career.

Danny Darwin (0-4) was the loser.
