Angels: Closer Troy Percival played catch for five minutes before Tuesday's game and was cleared to pitch, but wasn't used. Percival hasn't appeared in a game since Friday due to what was termed a tired shoulder. The 5-0 loss to Minnesota Tuesday ended a six-game personal winning streak for Steve Sparks, who hadn't lost since July 16.

Devil Rays: Tuesday's 10-0 rout of Seattle was Tampa Bay's largest victory margin and a franchise-low two-hitter by Wilson Alvarez and two relievers.

Mariners: The Kingdome crowd of 20,679 on Tuesday was the smallest of the season.

Tigers: Justin Thompson lost his fifth straight start Tuesday.

Twins: Brad Radke pitched seven shutout innings against Anaheim Tuesday to end a personal five-game losing streak. He has a 7-1 career record with a 1.57 ERA against the Angels. On Tuesday, Terry Steinbach became only the second Twin to hit two homers in a game this season. Pat Meares accomplished the feat on April 12 in Kansas City.

Yankees: David Cone struck out at least 10 batters without issuing a walk for the fifth time in his career against the Red Sox Tuesday. He is 4-0 in his career against Boston with a 2.55 ERA.
