Considering the possibilities, the Angels got away better than expected Wednesday night. Nolan Ryan did not pitch a no-hitter. Nolan Ryan did not throw a shutout. Nolan Ryan did not strike out 15 batters. The Angels avoided each of these indignities with a seven-hit attack, actually scoring a run against Ryan and actually knocking him out of the game in the ninth inning of a 5-1 loss to the Texas Rangers. This was notable in that the Angels preceded that one run with 23 consecutive scoreless innings--and followed it with seven more against Charlie Hough, whose 6-3 victory completed a doubleheader sweep in Arlington Stadium.

When Jeff Kent finally got his chance for the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, he was anything but full of confidence. However, the reserve infielder doubled home the winning run against Donn Paul in the 11th inning, giving the Blue Jays a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox at Toronto. "I wasn't predicting a game-winning RBI," Kent said. "I went out there and just tried not to strike out.

While Barry Bonds waited for No. 40, Calvin Murray embraced No. 4. Murray hit a three-run home run in the second inning Sunday and the San Francisco Giants defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-4, at San Francisco for their third consecutive victory. It was Murray's fourth home run of the season, which he has spent bouncing between the Giants and triple-A Fresno. Bonds, who became the 17th major leaguer to hit 500 homers in April, was honored with an on-field ceremony.

Billy Ashley was in a Boston uniform for a little more than a week when he finally joined the assault on opponents' pitching. "These guys can flat-out hit," he said Friday after getting three hits, including his first career grand slam, in the Red Sox's 15-2 victory over Chicago at Boston. "It's real exciting to watch the past couple of days, and today, to be a part of it."

Is swooning in the press box allowed? If so, I'm guilty. I just saw Nolan Ryan pitch. He wears a Texas Ranger uniform now--as if it matters. Ryan could wear a clown outfit (some say he did with the Houston Astros) and hitters still would tread lightly in the batter's box. After all, clothes don't make the pitcher; fastballs, curveballs and change-ups do, and Ryan has a closet full of those. Ryan didn't do anything extraordinary Wednesday evening, except win, which, at 42, probably deserves a hyperbole or two. He is the oldest player in the game, but still one of its most feared--no small compliment.

Trading in baseball is almost a lost art. But even in its heyday, it used to be axiomatic that the best trades are often the ones you never make. This is because the worst ones are so highly visible. And humiliating. They haunt the general manager for the rest of his baseball life. The worst trade in the history of the major leagues is a matter of subjective evaluation, but in the hunt has to be the dealing of Frank Robinson to the Baltimore Orioles for right-handed pitcher Milt Pappas.

Terry Mulholland knew he had baseball history as soon as Charlie Hayes caught the ball. Mulholland pitched the record eighth no-hitter of the season Wednesday night as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants, 6-0. "You can't realize what went through my mind when he caught that ball," Mulholland said. "It was such a rush of emotion. I'm not usually an emotional guy, but I knew the significance of that."
