Toronto Win 5-0 at Empty Comiskey

CHICAGO -- Roger Clemens allowed two hits in 5 2/3 innings before leaving with a muscle cramp in his groin, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 5-0 before a paid attendance of just 746.


It was Chicago's lowest home paid attendance since Sept. 21, 1970, when 672 attended a doubleheader against Kansas City at the old Comiskey Park. Including free tickets and those who used tickets from Tuesday night, total attendance in the 44,321-seat ballpark was 1,677.


The game was moved from night to day because of the cold. Temperatures were just above freezing Wednesday.


Clemens, beating the White Sox for the second time this season, struck out seven and walked two. He gave up singles to Dave Martinez in the first and Ray Durham in the second.


Joe Carter had three hits and drove in two runs for Toronto. The Blue Jays scored a run in the first and then added four in the third off Wilson Alvarez (0-2), who matched a career high with 12 strikeouts in seven innings.


Yankees 12, Angels 5. In Anaheim, California, New York scored eight runs in the third inning to rout Anaheim.


David Wells (1-0) pitched a nine-hitter and Mark Whiten got four hits for the Yankees, who went 4-4 on their season-opening trip.


Mariano Duncan went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and three runs scored for New York which, following an off-day Thursday, will open its home season Friday against the Oakland Athletics.


Wells, acquired in the off season as a free agent, pitched the Yankees' first complete game this season. The left-hander struck out three and walked two.


Whiten had two of his four singles in the third as the Yankees collected 18 hits against Angels starter Allen Watson (0-1) and Dennis Springer.


Mariners 11, Indians 1. In Seattle, Bob Wolcott pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings and Seattle roughed up Cleveland rookie Bartolo Colon for six runs in the first inning.


Russ Davis, Paul Sorrento and Jay Buhner homered for the Mariners.


Chad Curtis hit a ninth-inning home run off Seattle's Norm Charlton for the lone Cleveland run.


Wolcott (1-1), who gave up seven runs in three innings against Boston last Friday, recorded his first win since last Aug. 4.


Giants 3, Phillies 0. Barry Bonds hit his first homer of the season, and Kirk Rueter (1-0) allowed four hits in seven innings as the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Wednesday.


Bonds, moved up to third in the batting order from the cleanup spot, connected off Bobby Munoz (0-2) for a two-run homer in the first.


Rod Beck got three outs, finishing the five-hitter for his major league-leading fifth save.
