Blue Jays: Roger Clemens has started 15 times after a Blue Jays loss and is 9-4 in those games. Clemens had not allowed a homer since Detroit's Tony Clark connected on July 12, a span of 97 innings.

Devil Rays: Tony Saunders (Glen Burnie) improved to 2-1 with a 1.71 ERA in three September starts after going 1-4 with a 5.08 ERA in August. Sanders has received the lowest run support in the AL at 3.34 runs per nine innings. The Devil Rays have scored two runs or less in 15 of his 30 starts. Tampa Bay, with 60 victories, needs to win three of its last 12 games to avoid 100 losses.
