Schilling adds another win for Diamondbacks

Monday, July 1, 2002

CLEVELAND -- Curt Schilling got his major league-leading 13th win -- and first in four starts -- with a five-hitter Sunday, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Schilling (13-3) cruised from the opening pitch, and got his first victory since June 8 and first complete game in 16 starts.

Junior Spivey homered and the Diamondbacks took advantage of some early wildness by starter Danys Baez (6-6), who walked four in the first inning and didn't get through the fourth.

Jim Thome hit his 24th homer and Ellis Burks homered for the struggling Indians, who went 6-12 in interleague play and 11-15 in June -- their worst month since April 1993.

Athletics 7, Giants 0

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Tim Hudson pitched a five-hitter for his third career shutout as Oakland beat San Francisco.

Blue Jays 7, Expos 5

TORONTO -- Carlos Delgado hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh inning as Toronto Jays beat Montreal in what was possibly the final game between the Canadian teams.

The Blue Jays improved to 18-13 all-time against the Expos, who could be contracted or moved after the season.

Cubs 9, White Sox 2

CHICAGO -- Matt Clement shut down the surging White Sox offense, and Mark Bellhorn homered from both sides of the plate as the Cubs avoided a sweep by their crosstown rivals.

Clement (6-5) scattered two runs and six hits over eight-plus innings, and matched his career high with 12 strikeouts.

Rockies 4, Mariners 3

SEATTLE -- Todd Hollandsworth hit a game-tying double in the ninth and Todd Zeile scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly as Colorado beat Seattle to break a five-game losing streak.

Larry Walker had a season-high four hits for the Rockies and Justin Speier (3-0) pitched the eighth, giving up a walk. He was also called for a balk.

Braves 7, Red Sox 3

BOSTON -- Keith Lockhart doubled in the game-winner during a four-run 10th inning as Atlanta beat Boston to sweep the Red Sox and win for the 10th time in 11 games.

Atlanta led 3-0 before Brian Daubach, Trot Nixon and Nomar Garciaparra hit solo homers to tie it.

Ugueth Urbina (0-3), who is usually a one-inning closer, pitched 1 2-3 innings, allowing three earned runs, three hits and two walks.

Phillies 8, Orioles 5

Devil Rays 6, Marlins 5

TAMPA BAY -- Brent Abernathy's RBI single snapped a 12th-inning tie and gave Tampa Bay a victory over Florida.

Abernathy entered the game in the 10th as a pinch-runner and his game-winning hit with one out in the 12th scored Steve Cox, who opened the bottom of the inning with a double off Vladimir Nunez (4-3).

Twins 4, Brewers 3

MINNEAPOLIS -- Luis Vizcaino walked Dustan Mohr to force in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning then balked in another run as Minnesota beat Milwaukee.

DETROIT -- Rob Mackowiak had two hits and scored twice and Brian Giles homered as Pittsburgh beat Detroit.

Kris Benson (2-4) won back-to-back starts for the first time since September of 2000, allowing one run and six hits in 6 2-3 innings. Benson, who missed the entire 2001 season after elbow surgery, walked one and struck out one.

Royals 13, Padres 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Raul Ibanez singled, tripled and homered and drove in four runs for the second time in three days, leading Kansas City to a rout of San Diego.
