I see in Monday's paper that Kansas City outfielder Jermaine Dye was optioned to triple-A Omaha to make room for Jermaine Allensworth, who was acquired in a trade. Was Dye's hitting .213 germane to the move? E. FITZGERALD MOBLEY, Palmdale

Chicago 10, at Detroit 6: Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko reached 300 career homers with consecutive drives in the second inning for the White Sox. Dye and Konerko became the first teammates to hit century milestone home runs of at least 300 in the same game. at Kansas City 4, Cleveland 2: Zack Greinke (2-0) extended his scoreless inning streak to 25 innings. Baltimore 10, at Texas 9: Aubrey Huff went four for five with three of the Orioles' seven RBI singles.

CHICAGO -- A.J. Pierzynski found himself in the middle of another strange play, and once again the umpire involved was Doug Eddings. This time, the chaos followed a rundown between second and third, not a third strike. "Just a funny coincidence, I guess," said Pierzynski, whose bizarre trip around the bases in the 10th inning Sunday capped a 6-5 win for the Chicago White Sox over the Tampa Bay Rays. Eddings and Pierzynski were at the center of a disputed call in the 2005 AL Championship Series between the White Sox and the Angels.

Keys to the series: The White Sox had to win what amounted to three sudden-death playoff games just to reach the playoffs so they figure to arrive in Florida exhausted, but exhilarated, and with little time to rest before Thursday's series opener. Waiting for them is a Tampa Bay team that before this year had never had so much as a winning season, much less a division championship season. The Rays don't hit much -- only Oakland, among AL teams, had a lower season average -- but their young pitching staff had the league's second-best ERA, 3.82, and their bullpen was second in the majors with 52 saves.

The Kansas City Royals finished July with an 11-16 record, but they can't blame that on Jermaine Dye. Dye drove in five runs Saturday night, including a two-run double to key a five-run sixth, as the Royals rallied to beat the Texas Rangers, 12-8. Dye tied the team record for RBIs in a month with 32 in July, equaling the mark set by John Mayberry in July 1975. "He's grown up right before my eyes," said Royal Manager Tony Muser. "He's had physical problems in the past, but now he's healthy.

The best trade-deadline acquisition in baseball had to be carried off the field in the third inning of Game 4 Sunday, and with him may have gone the Oakland Athletics' World Series hopes. Cleanup batter Jermaine Dye, who hit .297 with 13 homers and 59 runs batted in 61 games for the A's after being traded from Kansas City on July 25, suffered a fractured tibia after fouling a ball off his left shin and is out for the season.

at Chicago 7, Cleveland 2: Jermaine Dye hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the sixth inning and hit a solo shot in the seventh to help the White Sox win their seventh consecutive game. Michael Aubrey hit a solo home run in the second for the Indians, who have lost a season-high five games in a row. at New York 8, Baltimore 0: Alex Rodriguez hit a home run and Darrell Rasner (3-0) won his third consecutive start since being called up from the minors.

Instead of trading prospective free agents Jason Giambi, Johnny Damon and Jason Isringhausen before Tuesday's non-waiver deadline, the Oakland Athletics elected Wednesday to build on their second-half momentum rather than break up the nucleus responsible for it. "Everybody thought we'd be in a selling mode," Oakland General Manager Billy Beane said by phone. "It's always fun to fool the naysayers."

CHICAGO -- The Angels and closer Francisco Rodriguez haven't seen eye to eye in contract negotiations, but they are on common ground heading into tonight's series against the New York Yankees. The magic number for both is three, for the Angels to win the American League West title and for Rodriguez to set baseball's single-season saves record. Rodriguez nailed down the last three outs of the Angels' 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox in U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday for his 55th save, moving the right-hander within two of Bobby Thigpen's record, set in 1990 for the White Sox. And the Angels took another step toward their fourth division championship in five years, riding Joe Saunders' strong start and Garret Anderson's tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to Sunday's win, which pushed their AL West lead to 17 games.

I don't get it. Just what did Dan Evans do to become the hands-down choice for the Dodgers' general manager job? Based on his performances during the season and in last week's winter meetings, I'd say he's no more qualified than Kevin Malone, no more respected, and, certainly, no less arrogant. What kind of a jerk simply doesn't bother to return phone calls? You'd think he was in the entertainment industry. I admit it's early, but clearly, no one around the majors takes him seriously.

Mike Sweeney offers an explanation for his record-tying streak: Jermaine Dye. Sweeney tied a 58-year-old American League mark by knocking in a run for his 13th consecutive game and Dye homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs, leading the Kansas City Royals over the Cleveland Indians, 10-9, Sunday at Cleveland. "I'm seeing more pitches with Jermaine swinging the bat like that," Sweeney said. "He's a big reason for the streak."
