Right fielder Scott Lusader of the Detroit Tigers tied a major league record he would rather not have anything to do with Saturday at Detroit. Lusader committed three errors during a seven-run first inning for the Chicago White Sox, who snapped the Tigers' seven-game winning streak with a 13-3 victory. Lusader, fighting the sun and a turf made soggy by overnight rains, became the eighth outfielder--the first in the American League since 1925--to make three errors in the same inning.

Scott Lusader drove in five runs with a pair of homers and Detroit pounded World Series hero Orel Hershiser for 10 runs on 10 hits as the Tigers beat the Dodgers 11-3 in exhibition baseball today. Nine of the runs off Hershiser, 1-1, were earned. Hershiser, who became the first Dodger to pitch five innings this spring, had allowed only one run on seven hits in his seven previous innings. He walked three and struck out one against the Tigers.

What has happened to the once-beautiful box score? Someone has cluttered it up with a lot of meaningless numbers that detract from its usual simplicity. Hey, I don't care how many times Scott Lusader (or anybody else) has been CS'ed. Caught stealing? As one accustomed to poring over a box score, I'm going to take it for granted that's what it is. Nor do I care to know the total errors Ken Caminiti (or anybody else) has to date. As for doubles and triples, can't we just rely on the weekly printing of these stats in "Major League Leaders?"

For some reason, the Toronto Blue Jays always stumble when their stretch run comes through Detroit. It happened in 1985 and '87. It happened again Tuesday night as the Blue Jays wasted a two-run ninth-inning lead and lost to the Tigers, 4-3. The fact that the Baltimore Orioles also lost enabled the Blue Jays to maintain their one-game lead in the American League East but didn't make the defeat any more palatable.

Chet Lemon was placed on unconditional release waivers Friday by the Detroit Tigers, who claimed infielder Luis de los Santos from Kansas City Royals. Lemon, 35, a 16-year veteran, received the news while the Tigers and Cincinnati Reds were playing to a 1-1 tie in an exhibition. He left before reporters were told. It is the continuation of a frustrating time in Lemon's life. He went through a divorce during the winter and has been injured much of the spring.

Mike Tyson, seeking a few minutes of relaxation before a press conference in New York, slipped out of the Plaza Hotel and settled down on a park bench in the company of closed-circuit promoter Shelly Finkel. Finkel told the New York Times: "All of a sudden a couple of people see him and ask for autographs. They don't speak English, but they recognize him. And point to him. Turns out they're from Spain and Italy. In 10 seconds, there's a line for autographs.

Dwight Gooden became the third-youngest pitcher in modern major league history to win 100 games, and Howard Johnson hit a pair of two-run homers to lead the Mets past the Montreal Expos, 5-3, Monday night at New York. Gooden (9-2) improved his lifetime mark to 100-37 at the age of 24 years 7 months. Bob Feller reached 100 victories at 22 in 1941 and Frank (Noodles) Hahn won his 100th game in 1903 at 24 years 2 months. "They were before my time, but I hear Feller was a pretty good pitcher," Gooden said.

It was no more than fitting that a player whose name rhymes with Caped Crusader acted like Batman against the Dodgers Monday. Scott Lusader is an obscure outfielder who doesn't figure to stick with the Detroit Tigers, but in this one meaningless exhibition game, he was the master of the top pitcher in baseball. Believe it, folks, it happened. Lusader went to bat twice against Dodger ace Orel Hershiser, and hit a home run each time.

Manager Sparky Anderson and his Detroit Tigers had learned to hate doubleheaders. In the only two they had played this season, they had not only lost all four games, they had been outscored, 40-15. That was BA----Before Alexander (Doyle). With the veteran right-hander pitching a shutout in the nightcap, the Tigers swept a doubleheader from the Orioles Wednesday night at Baltimore, 7-4 and 6-0.
