The Boston Red Sox made several bad pitches in their 7-6 defeat Wednesday at Oakland. Jose Canseco hit two of them for home runs and Mark McGwire hit another for his major league leading 20th homer. But maybe the worst was the one starter John Dopson threw behind Jamie Quirk, the next batter after third-inning home runs by Canseco and McGwire. Quirk charged the mound, was tackled by Red Sox catcher John Flaherty and both dugouts emptied.

Hey, it was only a coin toss. That little pregame ceremony that precedes every football game. Nothing to get stressed about. But, hey, this was the Angelus League.

One night after Joe Cowley pitched a no-hitter for the Chicago White Sox, Mike Trujillo allowed only one hit--a two-out, line-drive single in the first inning by Jamie Quirk--as the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals, 3-0, Saturday night. Trujillo (3-0) mixed an assortment of breaking pitches and had near-perfect control, walking one and striking out three.
