Rangers Last to Lose in '96


CHICAGO -- Lyle Mouton's three-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Chicago White Sox to an 8-5 victory over Texas, handing the Rangers their first loss of the season.

Texas (7-1) had been the lone unbeaten team in the majors until the loss and was off to its best start in team history -- and the best by any team since the 1987 Milwaukee Brewers won their first 13.

With one out in the 11th, Mike Henneman (0-1) walked Frank Thomas and gave up a single to Harold Baines before Mouton homered to right on a 1-0 count.

Texas had taken a 5-4 lead when Will Clark led off the 10th with a homer.

But Henneman blew the save, allowing a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Ozzie Guillen scoring pinch hitter Jose Munoz, who got his first career hit leading off.

Tony Phillips also homered for Chicago.

Mickey Tettleton and Ivan Rodriguez homered for Texas.

Larry Thomas (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for Chicago, which had lost two straight.

Padres 2, Braves 1. The Padres stopped Greg Maddux's major-league record, 18-game road winning streak as Steve Finley singled in the go-ahead run in a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Finley, in a 2-for-33 slump, slapped a single into center field to score Jody Reed and break a 1-1 tie in the fifth.

Maddux (1-1) hadn't lost on the road in the regular season since a 7-2 setback to Montreal on June 27, 1994. He allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, struck out six and walked one.

Andy Ashby (1-0) gave up four hits in eight innings, and Trevor Hoffman finished for his third save.
