OAKLAND -- A successful return to the rotation by Angels right-hander Garrett Richards on Saturday was marred by a rare meltdown by reliever Scott Downs, who gave up a pinch-hit, two-run home run to Derek Norris in the seventh inning of a 3-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum. Richards gave up three hits in five scoreless innings and left with a 1-0 lead, but a bullpen that suffered its second blown save in five games couldn't hold on, and the Angels fell 12 games behind the American League West Division-leading A's, matching their largest deficit of the season.

The Soviet Union, in an apparent bid for a propaganda coup, may soon challenge the West by scrapping up to 100 aging submarines and warships lying idle in its ports, according to the authoritative defense review "Jane's Fighting Ships." The editor, Richard Sharpe, told reporters that Western navies do not have the same reserves of obsolete ships and could not easily answer such an initiative. He wrote in the foreword to the 1989-90 edition, published Tuesday: "Because of their traditional reluctance to throw anything away, the Soviet navy has thousands of tons of ancient ships and submarines that it could unilaterally scrap with minimal effect on its overall effectiveness.
