Roof Falls In on Blue Jays, Fans

combined reports


TORONTO -- In a game in which seven fans were injured by falling aluminum and wood tiles, the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Blue Jays 9-0.


Medical crews removed two people on stretchers after the 13.5-kilogram tiles fell from the facing of the fifth deck during the seventh inning Thursday. A third spectator was taken away in a wheelchair, while another injured fan walked away.


The game was never halted, and Steve Sparks (3-2) combined with Mike Ignasiak and Graeme Lloyd for a four-hit shutout to complete a three-game sweep for the Brewers.


Danny Darwin (1-8) lost his eighth consecutive start since May 6. He gave up six runs and seven hits in six innings.


Red Sox 4, Orioles 1. In Baltimore, Roger Clemens (2-1) stymied the Orioles over 6 2/3 innings, his longest outing of the season, and Mo Vaughn hit his 18th homer to tie Oakland's Mark McGwire for the league lead.


Baltimore starter Kevin Brown (5-6) left the game with a dislocated first joint of the right index finger in the second inning after he instinctively tried to catch a line drive by Troy O'Leary with his pitching hand.


In the other AL game, it was Mariners 3, White Sox 2 in Chicago.


Reds 9, Braves 8. In Cincinnati, pinch-hitter Eddie Taubensee hit a two-run homer to cap Cincinnati's five-run eighth inning as the Reds out-homered the Atlanta Braves.


With Atlanta leading 8-4 in the eighth, Mark Wohlers relieved Greg McMichael with runners on first and second. Pinch-hitter Eric Anthony hit Wohlers' 0-2 pitch for his first home run of the season.


"I know he's not going to let you hit his second-best pitch," said Anthony. "I didn't think he was going to waste a pitch. I know he's got a 100-mile-per-hour fastball and he's going to come right at you."


Rockies 3, Padres 2. In San Diego, Armando Reynoso combined with five relievers on a six-hitter to win his first start in 13 months as the Colorado Rockies beat the Padres.


Cubs 13, Astros 2. In Houston, Sammy Sosa hit a three-run homer and drove in five runs, and Shawon Dunston returned from a two-game suspension with three hits as the Astros lost their seventh straight at home.


Doug Drabek (3-5) remained winless in six starts at home this season. Chicago got seven of its nine hits off Drabek in the third.


Phillies 8, Mets 2. In New York, Mariano Duncan had four hits and scored three times as the Phillies won their sixth straight.


Tom Marsh, who drove in three runs, Charlie Hayes and Jim Eisenreich each had three of Philadelphia's season-high 19 hits.


Dodgers 7, Giants 6. Whenever the Dodgers hit a home run in Los Angeles, the Dodger Stadium organist plays "Happy Days Are Here Again.''


It got monotonous after five Dodger homers, four in the first four innings, off San Francisco Giant starter Jose Bautista, to beat the Giants. Eric Karros hit two homers and the Dodgers hit five homers in a game for the second time in six outings.


Before last week, the last time the Dodgers had five home runs in a game was May 25, 1979, against Cincinnati.
