It didn't take long for Jeff Liefer to shake off any rust against the Seattle Mariners. Liefer, in the starting lineup for the first time in six days, hit a three-run homer and doubled to help the Chicago White Sox defeat Seattle, 6-5, Sunday at Chicago. The left-handed-hitting Liefer was the designated hitter against Mariner right-hander James Baldwin. Liefer replaced Frank Thomas, who is in an 0-for-11 slump. "I definitely felt a little stale," Liefer said.

Recruited to punt for Nebraska's football team, Darin Erstad decided to play baseball for the Cornhuskers because he loved the sport. The decision paid off for Erstad on Thursday, when the Angels made him the No. 1 selection in the amateur baseball draft. "It's kind of hard to believe," he said. "The money's not going to change who I am. I play the game because I love it." Catcher Ben Davis of Malvern Prep outside of Philadelphia, the second player selected in the draft, received a $1.

Cleveland Indian third baseman Travis Fryman, who has struggled most of the year after off-season shoulder surgery, announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of the season. Fryman decided to make the announcement now because a strike could make Wednesday night's game his last. He also thought the timing was appropriate because the Indians were playing Detroit, where he started his career and spent eight seasons.
