The New York Yankees on Saturday cut loose third baseman Wade Boggs and pitcher Dwight Gooden. The club announced it is passing on 1998 contract options for both. The moves saved $5 million in salaries at an expense of $400,000 in buyouts. Gooden was to receive a $3-million salary and got a $300,000 buyout. Boggs was given a $100,000 buyout instead of $2 million for 1998.

Paul O'Neill's two-run single in the first inning helped Jose Rijo gain his first victory since June as the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-2, Monday night at Cincinnati. Rijo (1-1) gave up four hits and struck out six in seven innings for his first victory in seven starts. Rob Dibble went 1 1/3 innings for his third save. Rijo's last victory was June 23 against the Dodgers. Lower back spasms limited him to four starts, none after he went on the disabled list July 17.

It wasn't as dramatic as Kirk Gibson's 12th-inning, game-winning home run in Game 4 of last year's National League championship series, but John Shelby will take it. Shelby hit a two-run homer with one out in the bottom of the 13th inning Monday to give the Dodgers a 5-3 exhibition victory over the new York Mets. It was Shelby's second homer of the spring and his second hit of the game. It hasn't been a good spring for Shelby, whose batting average had dipped to .174.

The way I look at it, nobody can win the World Series this year. The Cincinnati Reds can't win it because nobody repeats in baseball.

For some minor league baseball players, Sept. 1 can be as exciting as Christmas morning. Starting today, major league teams can expand their rosters to 40 players and a few select minor leaguers will be rewarded with promotions. Pennant contenders, such as the Dodgers and the New York Mets, will be adding reserves to help the battle for a playoff spot. Other teams will use their additional roster spots to test their top prospects against major league competition.

Ismael Valdes has the toughest assignment in the Dodger pitching rotation. He follows Hideo Nomo. The Dodgers, who have lost 15 of 24 games following a Nomo victory, lost again, 1-0, to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night before a paid crowd of 29,835 at Dodger Stadium. Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda said he can't explain the Dodgers' post-Nomo record. "How can you answer that question," Lasorda said with a sigh. Valdes agreed.

The Padres were getting closer Wednesday night to completing a deal that would send outfielder Kevin McReynolds--and possibly reliever Gene Walter--to the New York Mets for four players. Which four players? The Padres want infielder/outfielder Kevin Mitchell (he'd play third base), center fielder Stan Jefferson, left-handed pitcher Randy Meyers and pitcher Rick Aguilera. However, the Mets wouldn't trade those four just for McReynolds and wanted Walter, too, to sweeten the deal.
