Sports is a unifying element in many communities. Orange County is also a place that provides a deep talent pool. When a local product makes good, as was the case with the swimmer Amanda Beard of Irvine during the Olympics, the whole community turns out to cheer on a friend or a neighbor.

Alex Rodriguez hit a three-run homer, Derek Jeter also connected and New York got a useful start from Jaret Wright in a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Wright (1-2) held Oakland's slumping lineup in check into the sixth inning, helping the Yankees improve to 12-0 in day games. He got strong relief work from Scott Proctor and Kyle Farnsworth, who worked around Jeter's ninth-inning error to earn his first save with the Yankees.

Jaret Wright wiped the sweat from his brow, stood upright and inhaled the deepest breath of his young life as the firing squad took aim last August in San Diego. The setting was the annual Area Code Games, an event designed to help professional scouts and college recruiters in their search for young baseball talent. Wright was an especially hot item during the four-day window-shopping extravaganza in which the top players in the class of 1994 showcased their stuff.

When Jaret Wright walked off the mound at Yankee Stadium with an aching right shoulder April 23, he didn't know whether his season was over. He returned triumphantly Monday night at New York, giving the Yankees his second straight strong start after a layoff of nearly four months.

Former Katella High pitcher Jaret Wright is recovering at home after suffering a broken jaw in a freak accident before the California-Carolina League All-Star game Tuesday night in Rancho Cucamonga. Wright, Cleveland's No. 1 pick in the 1994 draft, was injured when he walked into a practice swing by Durham Bulls' player Ron Wright. Wright had surgery Wednesday morning at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange. The surgery was performed by Mighty Ducks' oral surgeon Jeff Pulver.

The Cleveland Indians put right-hander Mark Clark on the 15-day disabled list and recalled right-hander Jerry DiPoto from triple-A Charlotte. Clark's right wrist was broken Wednesday night when he was hit on the pitching hand by a line drive by Texas' Gary Redus. Cleveland's winningest pitcher, Clark (11-3) will be in a cast for four to six weeks. The Indians' first-round draft pick, pitcher Jaret Wright of Anaheim, is in Cleveland to sign his contract.

Indian Manager Mike Hargrove was so concerned about the wear and tear on rookie pitcher Jaret Wright's arm that he pushed the right-hander back in his World Series rotation so he'd have only one start, in Game 4 tonight. Wright has thrown a combined 210 innings between double-A Akron, triple-A Buffalo and Cleveland, more than he has in any other season, and Hargrove said he wasn't sure "how much Jaret Wright has left in his tank."

Jaret Wright threw a no-hitter to lead Katella to a 7-1 victory over Laguna Hills in the second round of the Loara Diamond baseball tournament. Wright, who struck out 11 and walked only two, also had two home runs and four runs batted in for the Knights. In other Loara Diamond tournament second-round championship bracket games: Brea-Olinda 6, Long Beach Jordan 1--Bryan Robinson had a perfect game through 6 1/3 innings and settled for the one-hitter.

The nerves were the worst part. That gut-wrenching feeling. The agony that came with every pitch. And that was just Clyde Wright sitting in the stands. For Jaret Wright, his son, it was worse . . . and then it was better. He went to the Wright family's most hallowed ground Wednesday night, the pitching mound at Anaheim Stadium, and came away the winner in the Cleveland Indians' 10-4 victory over the Angels. This was more than a major league start for Wright.

Nearly four months after thinking his career might be over, Jaret Wright is back, and pitching well for the New York Yankees. Wright won his first start since going on the disabled list because of shoulder pain, and Alex Rodriguez and Gary Sheffield homered Monday night, helping the Yankees beat the host Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 5-2, for their fifth consecutive victory.

The Cleveland Indians on Wednesday declined to pick up their 2003 contract option on right-handed pitcher Jaret Wright, a former Anaheim Katella High standout whose career has been slowed by injuries. Wright, son of former Angel left-hander Clyde Wright, has been on the disabled list seven times since 1999. He declined to be outrighted and will file for free agency, the Indians said. Cleveland had a $6-million option on Wright for 2003.

The dark cloud that has followed Cleveland Indian pitcher Jaret Wright the last two seasons reappeared suddenly this spring, reminding him once again that nothing comes easily. Wright had just tossed his 60th and final warmup pitch before an exhibition last month against Detroit in Florida. He was about to test his surgically repaired right shoulder, throwing against major league batters for the first time in 10 months. "This storm came out of nowhere," Wright said.

The game had a little bit of everything, including Jaret Wright taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning. Kenny Lofton and Omar Vizquel made dazzling plays in the field. Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez hit long home runs. And the Cleveland Indians defeated the Seattle Mariners, 5-3, on run-scoring singles by Einar Diaz and Jacob Cruz with two outs in the 10th inning Wednesday at Seattle.

Jaret Wright is driving his dad to . . . Well, since Clyde Wright, the former Angel left-hander who won 22 games and pitched a no-hitter in 1970, gave up drinking a long time ago, he had to come up with another analogy. "I talked to him on the phone the other night," Wright said, "and I said, 'Son, you've got to win a game soon or these tranquilizers you've got me taking are going to kill me.' " Father and son laughed, but there have been few laughs for either.

Lake Elsinore Storm pitcher Jason Stockstill had to shake himself a couple times last fall to believe what he was seeing. His Katella High teammate, Jaret Wright, was pitching in the seventh game of the World Series. "It was indescribable," Stockstill said. "I mean, I had just played with him a couple years ago." Wright's quick rise through the Cleveland Indians' organization, Stockstill said, has him thinking more optimistically about his future with the Angels.

Rookie Jaret Wright came within one out of his first major-league shutout Saturday. But Wright, the son of former Angel pitcher Clyde Wright, had to settle for his third victory in five major league starts as the Indians defeated the Oakland Athletics, 6-3. "Sure, I wanted a shutout," said Wright, 21. "But I'm never unhappy to get the win." Wright (3-1) gave up three runs--two earned--and six hits in 8 2/3 innings as the Indians ended a three-game losing streak.

Jaret Wright pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout as the Cleveland Indians continued their domination of the Tigers with a 2-0 victory Monday at Detroit. Manny Ramirez homered for the Indians, who are 3-0 against Detroit this year and 39-11 since the start of the 1994 season. "There are times you come out of the pen [after warmups] feeling good," said Wright, an Orange County native. "Tonight was one of those times."

The Cleveland Indians lost the seventh game of the World Series last year, but Jaret Wright--the rookie right-hander who gave up just two hits in 6 1/3 innings of the game eventually won by the Florida Marlins--still returned home to Anaheim the conquering hero. Apparently, it was an off-season of hometown boy makes good. "A young guy who had that kind of exposure and success. . . . I'm sure he was on top of the world," catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. said, smiling.
