CHICAGO -- DeWayne Wise hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers, 11-7, to complete a doubleheader sweep after the bullpen blew a seven-run lead Sunday night. The White Sox won the first game, 4-2, behind right-hander Javier Vazquez's 7 2/3 scoreless innings. They appeared on their way to an easy win in the second game after taking a 7-0 lead. Jim Thome hit his 539th home run and Brian Anderson also hit a home run against left-hander Kenny Rogers, but the White Sox relievers imploded after left-hander John Danks pitched six scoreless innings.

The Montreal Expos were doing well without a victory from ace Javier Vazquez. Now, they've got him going too. Vazquez pitched a five-hitter and Peter Bergeron drove in two runs, and the Expos beat the Astros, 5-1, Tuesday night at Houston. Vazquez (1-1), who pitched nine innings in a 15-inning victory over Milwaukee in his last start, struck out nine and walked none. It was his 11th career complete game. "He pitched what I call a clean game," Expo Manager Frank Robinson said.

San Francisco finished 0-7 against Montreal overall, the first time in the franchise's 121-year history that it was swept in a season series involving more than three games.

Javier Vazquez is being held to a pretty high standard. Vazquez pitched eight strong innings and Orlando Cabrera and Vladimir Guerrero each had three hits to lead the Montreal Expos to a 6-3 victory over San Francisco on Friday night, ending the Giants' season-high winning streak at seven. Vazquez (2-2) allowed six hits--including a leadoff homer and an RBI single by David Bell. "Vazquez is better than that," Giant Manager Dusty Baker said. "I've seen him sharper than that.

Javier Vazquez appeared to be on his way to a perfect night. After trying to sneak a curveball past Ken Harvey, the New York Yankee right-hander settled for a mostly dominant outing. Vazquez gave up two runs and two hits -- including Harvey's homer in the fifth inning -- and the Yankees won their season-high fourth game in a row, 5-2, over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night at New York. "I felt pretty good, but when you're pitching, someone's usually going to get a hit," Vazquez said.

Shawn Green doesn't have to house-hunt in Scottsdale, Ariz. No need for Brad Penny to descend the mountain he's climbing to take a physical. Kazuhisa Ishii can continue vacationing in Hawaii, and Yhency Brazoban can cancel the U-Haul. But slugging free-agent outfielder J.D. Drew can book a flight to Los Angeles anyway.
