Late Run Seals Dodger Win

PHILADELPHIA -- Mitch Webster singled in Eric Karros with the winning run in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored four times in the eighth Tuesday to rally past the Philadelphia Phillies 8-7.


The Dodgers, who have scored 31 runs in their last three games, trailed 7-2 entering the seventh. In the ninth, Karros singled with one out off Doug Jones (1-1) and took second on Dave Hansen's single. Webster then delivered his base hit to center, scoring Karros.


Todd Worrell (1-1) pitched the eighth for the win, and Darren Dreifort picked up his first major league save despite allowing two singles in the ninth. Dreifort retired John Kruk on a deep fly to center and struck out Ricky Jordan with two runners on for the final out.


Milt Thompson hit a three-run homer for the Phillies.


Expos 4, Giants 3. In San Francisco, Moises Alou homered off Dave Burba in the ninth inning to snap the Expos's four-game losing streak. Alou, who went 3-for-4 and scored twice, was the first batter to face Burba (0-1) and drove a 2-2 pitch over the right-field fence for his third homer.


Cardinals 5, Braves 4. In Atlanta, the St. Louis Cardinals took advantage of an error by third baseman Terry Pendleton to rally for three runs in the seventh inning and stopped the Braves' six-game winning streak. The Braves lost for only the second time in 15 games this season. Greg Maddux, (3-1), the two-time Cy Young Award winner, took the loss.


Reds 8, Pirates 2. In Cincinnati, Roberto Kelly put the Reds in control with a three-run homer and Jose Rijo allowed just two hits in seven innings to beat Pittsburgh.


Astros 3, Cubs 0. In Chicago, Greg Swindell won his third straight start and the Houston Astros hit three solo homers to beat the Cubs, still the only major league team without a win at home. The Cubs, now 0-7 at Wrigley Field, matched the second-worst home start in team history. The club went 0-8 in 1957 and 0-7 in 1944.


Mets 4, Padres 3. In San Diego, Bret Saberhagen pitched eight effective innings and Jeff Kent got three hits, leading the New York Mets over the Padres. Saberhagen (2-0) won despite allowing 11 hits, including five straight to start the game. He walked none and struck out five.


Marlins 6, Rockies 4. In Denver, Bret Barberie and Gary Sheffield hit home runs and David Weathers weathered a rain delay as Florida beat Colorado.


Red Sox 13, Athletics 5. In Boston, Mo Vaughn and Tim Naehring twice hit back-to-back homers and Scott Cooper added a grand slam as the Red Sox defeated Oakland.


Tigers 9, Royals 5. In Detroit, Kirk Gibson broke out of a 1-for-15 slump with a pair of three-run homers. For Gibson, who scored three runs, the multi-homer game was the 13th of his career and gave him a career-high six RBIs. Mike Moore (2-1) allowed five runs and four hits in 7 1-3 innings. He walked three and struck out three before leaving with a 6-4 lead in the eighth.


Orioles 4, Angels 3. In Baltimore, Jeffrey Hammonds homered and Lee Smith got his major league-leading seventh save as the Orioles won their third straight.


White Sox 6, Brewers 2. In Milwaukee, Frank Thomas, Julio Franco and Ron Karkovice each homered during a five-run eighth inning for the White Sox. Jason Bere (2-0) allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings to win his ninth straight decision.


Mariners 7, Yankees 1. In New York, Jay Buhner hit two long home runs, leading Greg Hibbard and the Mariners to their first road win this season. Buhner hit an RBI single in the first inning, a solo homer in the third and two-run shot in the fifth off Jim Abbott (1-2).


Blue Jays 13, Rangers 3. In Toronto, Carlos Delgado and Joe Carter hit three-run homers in the Blue Jays season-high 17-hit attack. Juan Guzman (2-1) allowed two runs, one earned, on seven hits in seven innings.
