Dave Winfield used his bat, Ken Griffey used his glove and Bruce Hurst used his logic. "It's two extremes," Hurst, the starting and losing pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, said Monday. "They're on one extreme and we're on the other, but we're going in opposite directions. We wanted to beat them because they're in front of us, but it just didn't work out that way."

Dave Winfield had four RBIs, Don Mattingly hit in his 17th straight game and Don Baylor drove in the game-winner, yet all anyone could talk about Monday at Yankee Stadium after the New York Yankees' 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox was "The Catch". With one out in the top of the ninth, Marty Barrett of the Red Sox sent a high fly to left. But Ken Griffey planted his right foot in the padding of the wall, extended his arm into the second row and came out with the ball to preserve the win.

Aware of the way the Boston Red Sox support him with runs, unbeaten Roger Clemens had little to fear when the Baltimore Orioles took a 1-0 lead. "I was just hoping to hold onto that 1-0 deficit and go from there," Clemens said after he posted his 14th victory, allowing seven hits and striking out 11 while pitching into the ninth inning of a 5-3 decision Friday night. "I was disappointed when I let them back in the game in the seventh," Clemens said.

The relationship is working well enough thus far. The Yankees' offense is dreaded, their starting pitching is dreadful. They work in perfect unison; one overwhelms while the other underwhelms. The good and bad were blended together again Tuesday night to produce another long, harrowing and not particularly handsome victory against the Brewers. "I didn't think we could play two in a row like that," Dave Winfield said. And he wasn't admiring the Yankees' effort.

Before 1980, only three pitchers in major league baseball had 3,000 career strikeouts, but since then, seven more have passed that milestone. Bert Blyleven joined the group with a flourish Friday night at Minneapolis. The 35-year-old right-hander pitched a two-hitter and struck out a career-high 15 batters in a 10-1 victory over the Oakland A's. Blyleven, who came into the came with 2,992 strikeouts, reached the 3,000 level when he got Mike Davis in the fifth inning.

Billy Martin, the embattled New York Yankee manager, suffered a broken right arm in a fight with pitcher Ed Whitson early Sunday at a Baltimore hotel. Martin held an impromptu news conference when he reported to Memorial Stadium for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles with his arm in a cast and a sling. "I think it happened when he (Whitson) kicked me," Martin said of the broken bone in the forearm. "He kicked me once in the groin and once in the arm."
