May 16, 1999

Athletics: Pitchers have not walked more than three batters in any of the past 10 games. Doug Jones' appearance was the 737th of this career, tying him with Ron Perranoski for 36th place on the career games pitched list.

Blue Jays: Homer Bush started at second for the first time since being activated off the disabled list Friday. Alex Gonzalez, who missed Friday's game with soreness in his throwing shoulder, was the designated hitter.

Red Sox: Nomar Garciaparra's 16-game hitting streak was broken.

Tigers: Jose Macias' two-run homer in the ninth was his first major-league hit in his third career at-bat. The crowd of 39,769 was the second-largest of the season at Tiger Stadium, thanks to a pre-game youth clinic as well as the usual influx of Indians fans who flock to Detroit because they can't get tickets to sold-out Jacobs Field.
