Early in spring training, Manager Billy Gardner didn't like what he saw in a sore-armed rookie pitcher who was trying to earn a spot on the Minnesota Twins' roster. But that pitcher assured his manager that "he ain't seen nothing Yett"--and then Richard Yett went and proved it.

A baseball game that included 41 players, 21 runs, 29 hits, 4 errors and 3 wild pitches ended the way most of the 9,320 fans at Cleveland Stadium figured it would--on a botched play. Angel third baseman Jack Howell booted a tricky ground ball in the 10th inning Saturday afternoon, allowing Brett Butler to score the winning run for an 11-10 Cleveland victory.

George Bell does most of his talking with the bat--and it is speaking loudly these days. Bell, who turns down requests for interviews and gives brief replies to postgame questions, hit his 46th home run of the season Sunday at New York to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-2 victory over the Yankees. With the Detroit Tigers losing to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Blue Jays are only a half-game out of first place in the tight scramble in the American League East.

For the second game in a row, hot-hitting Kirby Puckett hit a home run on the first pitch Saturday night at Detroit. It was the new slugging star's 11th home run in just 24 games. Friday night, Puckett hit the first pitch Jack Morris threw, and the Minnesota Twins went on to win handily, 10-1. Saturday night, although he gave up a two-run home run later in the first inning to Gary Gaetti, Walt Terrell (3-1) made the outcome different.

Scott Bailes, who had been hospitalized three nights earlier for treatment of stomach ulcers, shut out the Detroit Tigers on two hits in four innings of relief to help the Cleveland Indians to an 8-7 comeback victory Thursday night at Cleveland. The rookie left-hander held the Tigers scoreless while Cleveland overcame a six-run deficit with three runs in the fifth and four in the eighth. Carmen Castillo's RBI double capped the four-run eighth inning.

It's been the Year of the Rookie in the American League, and the Cleveland Indians have been part of the trend. "They've definitely made us a better team," said Indian Manager Pat Corrales. "And they're going to get better next year." The Indians have eight rookies, including Jay Bell who joined the team late in September, and four of them are certain to make next year's squad.

Little-used Henry Cotto drove in three runs with a home run and a double Thursday to lead the streaking New York Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the slumping Baltimore Orioles at New York. The win moved the Yankees, who have won six of seven games, within four percentage points of the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East and gave them a sweep of the four-game series. The Orioles have lost 4 straight and 14 out of 15.

The usually talkative Dennis (Oil Can) Boyd chose to be silent after quieting the bats of the Cleveland Indians. "I ain't doing no talking. I ain't doing no rapping," Boyd said after pitching 6 1/3 innings as the Boston Red Sox handed Cleveland its sixth consecutive defeat, 5-2, Thursday. Two-run home runs by Nick Esasky and Jim Rice and a solo shot by Dwight Evans accounted for all the runs by the Red Sox, who have won three straight games and seven of nine since beginning the season with four losses.

The Detroit Tigers traded left-hander Mark Thurmond to the Baltimore Orioles for veteran infielder Ray Knight Saturday. Knight, 35, has hit .275 over 11 major league seasons, most of which he has spent at third base. Besides Baltimore, he has played for the Cincinnati Reds, Houston Astros and the New York Mets. He is expected to play first base and be a designated hitter for the Tigers. "Ray is an established hitter who gives us help from the right side," Tiger General Manager Bill Lajoie said.
