Angels notch team-record 98th victory

Posted: Sunday, September 29, 2002

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Brad Fullmer hit a two-run triple and a single during a seven-run sixth inning and the Anaheim Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 8-4 Saturday.

The Angels, the AL wild card winner, extended a team record with their 98th victory. They matched a club mark of 53 home wins set in 1967.

Blue Jays 10, Tigers 2

TORONTO -- Carlos Delgado hit his 10th home run in September and Toronto matched its season high by winning its sixth straight. Eric Hinske hit his 24th homer for the Blue Jays, 43-32 since the All-Star break.

Justin Miller (9-5) won for the sixth time in seven starts, allowing two runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings. Jason Beverlin (0-3) lost his third straight start, and the Tigers (55-105) made two errors that increased their league-leading total to 142.

Devil Rays 9, Red Sox 6

BOSTON -- Boston's Manny Ramirez doubled twice, going 2-for-4 to improve his AL-leading batting average to .349.

Indians 6, Royals 5

CLEVELAND -- Jim Thome tied it with his 52nd homer, a three-run drive in the eighth, and Ellis Burks had an RBI grounder in the 10th off Mike MacDougal (0-1), a ball that rolled off the glove of shortstop Angel Berroa for an error.

Twins 3, White Sox 2

MINNEAPOLIS -- Bobby Kielty hit a two-run homer in the eighth off Mark Buehrle (19-12) to send the AL Central champions on to their fourth win in five games.

Minnesota opens the playoffs Tuesday at Oakland.

LaTroy Hawkins (6-0) pitched the eighth, and Eddie Guardado pitched the ninth for his 45th save.

Yankees 4, Orioles 2

BALTIMORE -- David Wells (19-7) allowed two hits over six innings, and Bernie Williams had three hits, including a two-run double off Travis Driskill (8-8), as New York won its fourth straight.

New York (102-58) maintained a half-game lead over Oakland (102-59) in the race for home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs. Because the Yankees have the tiebreaker edge, New York needs one more victory or an Oakland loss to clinch it -- and avoid a Monday makeup game against Tampa Bay.

Athletics 10, Rangers 8

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Terrance Long and Eric Byrnes had consecutive RBI singles in the seventh inning as Oakland rallied from a 7-2 deficit.

Miguel Tejada homered twice for the A's, who overcame a 7-6 deficit in the seventh off Danny Kolb (3-6).

Ted Lilly (5-7) pitched two shutout innings, and Jim Mecir got three outs for his first save of the year. Texas has lost 12 of 15.
