Hits and misses

June 21, 1996|By Peter Schmuck

On the field: Left-hander David Wells gave up a first-inning home run to Texas Rangers third baseman Dean Palmer, but settled down again to pitch well. He worked 7 1/3 innings and gave up two runs on six hits to earn his fourth victory of the year.

In the dugout: Manager Davey Johnson pulled Wells after a great throw by center fielder Brady Anderson cut off the potential tying run at the plate in the eighth inning. Roger McDowell and Randy Myers shut the Rangers down the rest of the way.

In the clubhouse: Johnson was happy to see the weather finally turn yesterday. "It seems like it [the rain] has been following us around and that wears on you. This club has a lot of guys who like to come to the ballpark, but we've been around [the clubhouse] so much that it seems like we're running around in a maze."
