Danny Jackson became the fifth pitcher this season to hold the Angels hitless for more than seven innings Wednesday night but emerged as the fourth who was unable to equal Joe Cowley's no-hit feat. Jackson's bid made it as far as the ninth inning before the Angels scraped up some self-respect and reduced the Kansas City left-hander to an ordinary 2-0 winner at Royal Stadium. Jackson was not particularly pleased by this and had two potential targets for his anger. Pick a White.

Danny Jackson pitched a four-hitter Friday to end a nine-game winless streak and avoid the worst start to a season in St. Louis history as the Cardinals defeated the Florida Marlins, 4-0, at St. Louis. Jackson (1-9), who was treated for thyroid cancer in the off-season, had tied the club record set by Art Fromme in 1907.

Chatting with Cincinnati Reds pitcher Danny Jackson in Florida recently, Jackson alluded to the Reds and said he could guarantee the following: "Get this club in the playoffs one time and it will be there at least three of the next five years.

The Padres are getting sick of trying to explain it. Pitcher Andy Benes simply shrugs his shoulders and offers no answers. Padre Manager Greg Riddoch is speechless. But once again, with a new team in town and facing a pitcher who recently came off the disabled list, the Padres looked like the ones who had the hangover from jet lag, losing 7-3 to the Chicago Cubs. It's really nothing new. The crowd of 30,161 at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium actually is beginning to get accustomed to this.

The Philadelphia Phillies giggled at the commotion created by the Toronto Blue Jays. They snickered at all of the confusion over Who's at first, What's at second, and I don't know at third. Why, with the way the Blue Jays were acting Tuesday, the Phillies wondered if their American League counterparts would even be able to play the game, so despondent were they over not being allowed to use a designated hitter in Philadelphia.

"But I like to call it an 'ugly face.' " Jackson's black hair fell in disorganized locks around his forehead. His cheeks and chin were coated in stubble. His jaw was tight and lips were upturned.
