Clemens Blanks Orioles As Toronto Ends Slump

BALTIMORE, Maryland -- Roger Clemens pitched seven shutout innings and Joe Carter broke a scoreless tie with a two-run single in the eighth as the Toronto Blue Jays ended a five-game losing streak by beating Baltimore 3-0.


Clemens (12-2) struck out nine, walked two and allowed five hits Thursday night in becoming the American League's first 12-game winner. Clemens extended his scoreless streak to 17 innings; in his previous start, he wasn't involved in the decision despite throwing seven shutout innings against the Orioles. This time, however, the Blue Jays' bullpen held the lead.


Dan Plesac got one out and Mike Timlin finished for his seventh save.


Tigers 10, Red Sox 6. In Boston, Brian Hunter stole four bases for the Tigers. Hunter reached in all five plate appearances as the Tigers overcame solo homers by Mike Stanley, John Valentin and Shane Mack to stop Boston's four-game winning streak.


Expos 5, Marlins 2. In Miami, Jeff Juden pitched a four-hitter, had two hits and drove in two runs to beat Florida for the second time in a week.


Juden (9-2), who didn't allow a hit until Gary Sheffield's fifth-inning homer, struck out six and walked two.


Meanwhile, Wayne Huizenga, who says he will lose $30 million on the Florida Marlins this season, is putting the professional baseball team up for sale, but won't let them move out of town.


"The simple answer is we are not willing to sustain the losses,'' he said prior to a news conference.


Eric Davis said Thursday that he hasn't made a decision yet about undergoing chemotherapy treatments, but hopes to play for the Baltimore Orioles again this season.


Davis made his return to Oriole Park at Camden Yards 13 days after having a cancerous tumor removed from his colon during surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
