For the first time in 32 years, a major league pitcher has a record of 16-1. Roger Clemens improved upon the best season of his career, record-wise, by giving up only four hits in seven innings at New York to lead the Yankees over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 10-3, Wednesday night. Clemens, 39, is only the sixth major leaguer since 1900 to start 16-1, the first since Dave McNally did it for the Baltimore Orioles in 1969.

A patch of barren ground in the Dodgers' otherwise bountiful farm system has been starting pitching. Chad Billingsley has been as good as advertised, but the only other starter projected to help the major league team in the next two seasons is left-hander Scott Elbert. Look lower on the ladder, though, and two names stand out. Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers' top selection in the draft two months ago, is pitching better than any other first-round pick.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Maury Wills was determined to focus on other dreams, hoping to maintain peace of mind this time.

Brooklyn Dodger teammates attending Pee Wee Reese's funeral Wednesday remembered the Hall of Fame shortstop as a man among the "Boys of Summer." "He was the tradition, he was the greatest Dodger of them all," center fielder Duke Snider said. Snider recalled a trip to Hawaii with Reese and Don Zimmer to attend the baseball winter meetings. "They had a big chair there that was called the 'Kahuna chair,' " he said. "Zimmer said to him, 'Captain, that's your chair.'

Detroit Manager Larry Parrish and catcher Brad Ausmus were given two-game suspensions and $500 fines by American League President Gene Budig on Monday for an argument with umpire Chuck Meriwether on May 31 in which contact was made. Parrish said his brush with Meriwether was incidental and not intended. "What's bad is everything was precipitated by a stupid call," Parrish said. "He pushed me twice, but I didn't really worry about that."

CHICAGO — Bobby Abreu had the opportunity to make a notable first impression with the Dodgers on Friday, but it wasn't to be. With the Dodgers trailing by two runs in the seventh inning, Abreu was the hitter with runners at first and third and two outs. But he took a called third strike. Then in the ninth, again with two outs, he had another chance to get the Dodgers even and hit the ball hard — but directly at the right-fielder. Before the game, the veteran outfielder said he was prepared for a part-time role with his new club and "just happy to be back" in the game.
