White Sox Smother Orioles

CHICAGO -- Doug Drabek allowed one run over eight innings, and Dave Martinez and Albert Belle each drove in three runs, powering the Chicago White Sox to a 9-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.


Drabek, who was hammered for 13 runs over 7 1/3 innings in his first two starts, gave up three hits with four walks and three strikeouts for his first American League win since 1986 with the New York Yankees.


"I was putting the team in a hole early. So when I got those runs, I told myself to treat it like a 1-0 lead," Drabek said.


Former Oriole Harold Baines hit a solo homer in the third, and Belle had a three-run shot in the fourth for Chicago, which won for just the second time in eight games.


Rockies 4, Cubs 0. Roger Bailey tossed a five-hitter for his first career shutout as the Colorado Rockies posted a 4-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs, who set the all-time National League record for the worst start to a season.


The Cubs fell to 0-12 to break the 1884 Detroit Wolverines' all-time NL record for losses to start a season. The major-league record of 0-21 was set by the Baltimore Orioles in 1988.


Mariners 7, Tigers 3. In Detroit, Randy Johnson won his 14th straight decision and Ken Griffey Jr. hit a two-run homer as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers, 7-3.


Johnson (2-0), who hasn't lost since Aug. 1, 1995, allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings.
