Blue Jays: Roger Clemens broke the team scoreless innings streak record set by Dave Stieb in 1988. Clemens struck out John Valentin in the first, the 3,100th of Clemens' career. Jose Canseco homered into SkyDome's fifth deck for the second time in his career. Carlos Delgado, Joe Carter and Mark McGwire are the only other players to reach the 500 level. McGwire hit the longest home run in SkyDome history on July 25, 1996, a 488-foot shot.

Indians: Richie Sexson has homered in two straight games and six of his past eight.
