Notable

June 18, 1998

Angels: Despite six blown saves by their bullpen, including two by Troy Percival, the Angels are 38-0 when they've led after eight innings.

Blue Jays: Shawn Green's nine-game hitting streak ended. Toronto made room for Dave Stieb by placing catcher Kevin Brown on the disabled list retroactive to June 13 with back spasms.

Devil Rays: Tampa is the only team without an outfield error.

Indians: Jose Mesa, who relieved Alvin Morman in the seventh to face Jeff King, was booed loudly by the sellout crowd of 43,196. Mesa, who gave up King's 10th-inning homer Monday, was booed the instant he opened the bullpen door.

Mariners: Seattle has lost nine of 11 to fall 13 games behind the Angels.

Red Sox: The victory was the 400th for manager Jimy Williams. Mo Vaughn moved into a tie for seventh on Boston's all-time home run list with Rico Petrocelli with 210.

Tigers: Tony Clark had his first multi-homer game of the season and sixth of his career. He last did it May 17, 1997, at Kansas City. Outfielder Luis Gonzalez, who had three hits last night, has played 92 straight games without an error over the past two seasons.

Twins: Minnesota gave up five unearned runs.

White Sox: First baseman Wil Cordero did not start because of flu-like symptoms that forced him out of Tuesday's game. His status is day-to-day.
