Athletics: Jimmy Haynes became the first Oakland pitcher with 100 strikeouts in a season since 1995. The six homers were a season high. They also were a season high for homers allowed by the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays: Jose Cruz extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games.

Red Sox: The day game was the 14th consecutive sellout at Fenway Park, but the night game drew only 26,677. Pedro Martinez has seven double-digit strikeout games this season, 34 in his career.

Yankees: New York has hit 67 homers since the All-Star break, the most in the majors, including 39 in the past 20 games. New York pitchers have given up the fewest home runs (113) in the league.
