BASEBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE MAJORS : Who's at Home? Mix-Up Costs Aude Hit

September 27, 1993| Associated Press

A batting order mix-up Sunday by the Pittsburgh Pirates cost rookie first baseman Rich Aude a hit. The Pirates were caught batting out of order in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs, which they won, 1-0.

The error occurred between games. Pirates Manager Jim Leyland put the proper lineup on the official card that went to the umpires and Cubs. A different order was posted on the large dugout card. That was the one the players followed.

The worst season of Roger Clemens' career ended because of an inflamed pitching elbow. Clemens, plagued by injury and inconsistency throughout his first losing season, finished 11-14, with an earned-run average of 4.46.
