At this rate, it may not be long before the New York Yankees clinch a playoff spot. Picking a postseason roster, though, may take a little longer. Willie Banks won in his first major league start in nearly two years, and the Yankees cut their magic number for sealing a playoff slot to four, beating Boston, 4-3, Tuesday night to complete a doubleheader sweep at New York. In the opener, Andy Pettitte struck out a career-high 12 in eight innings as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox, 2-0.

Angel second baseman Rex Hudler stood in the on-deck circle in the eighth inning, leaned over into the stands, and calmly told the Texas Ranger fans that he was going to ruin their night. In an act of braggadocio, or perhaps stupidity, Hudler vowed he was personally going to ruin Ranger pitcher Kenny Rogers' perfect game. "I was telling the fans in the first five rows that I was going to get him," Hudler said. "I wanted him bad. I was going to hit an ugly bleeder that would (tee) off everyone."

He went seven innings, limiting the team that leads the major leagues in batting to five hits, but there was still no joy in Abbott-ville Tuesday night. The Texas Rangers couldn't have timed their hits off Jim Abbott any better, bunching four in the second and third innings en route to a 6-2 victory over the Angels before 34,680 in the Ballpark at Arlington. It was Abbott's best game in more than two months, a performance the left-hander hopes to build on as he tries to emerge from the depths of what is now a 1-12 season.

Sidney Ponson of the Baltimore Orioles was on the brink of his first career complete game when he ran into trouble in the ninth inning. After each batter, the right-hander peered into the dugout, fully expecting to be removed by Manager Ray Miller. Ponson hung on, however, retiring the heart of the Texas Rangers' order to complete a six-hitter in the Orioles' 3-2 victory Friday night.
