City officials said they won't be able to open more streets in time for today's doubleheader, and it will probably take a few days before traffic is back to normal. The tunnel runs directly under Howard Street, a north-south artery that is used by cars and light rail. But before the street can be reopened, officials have to determine how much structural damage to the tunnel was caused by the fire and a resulting water-main break.

But he used four relievers on Wednesday night, and last night, after Mike Mussina was pounded, Johnson called on Archie Corbin in the top of the fourth.
