But the Unicorns’ record of 5-1, including pool play matches, comes entirely against 26-5 A and 27-5 A teams.

Saberhagen no-hits White Sox Briefly
KANSAS CITY (AP) — By now, almost all of us have seen the play that saved Bret Saberhagen's no-hitter. So was it a hit or an error?
Dan Pasqua thought he deserved a hit, and the scoreboard operator at Royals Stadium thought so, too. Bul Kirk Gibson thought he committed an error, and the official scorer, whose opinion was the only one that counted, agreed.
That resolved, sort of, Saberhagen went back to business. The two-time Cy Young winner finished the first no-hitter of his career and the seventh of the season, pitching the Royals past the While Sox 7-0.
“Now I know how Nolan (Ryan) feels like,” Saberhagen said. “I realize what I’ve accomplished and it’s something I’ll always look back on.’’
The While Sox lost their seventh straight game. Saberhagen, meanwhile, almost lost his no-hitter in the fifth inning.
With one out, Pasqua sliced a long liner over Gibson’s head in left field. Gibson ran back toward the alley, jumped at the front edge of the warning track and the ball grazed off his glove as Pasqua pulled into second base.
Royals Manager Hal McRae preferred not to talk about the play.
"It’s something we shouldn’t talk about. He pitched a no-hitter. The less said the better,’’he said.
Saberhagen (10-6) struck out five and walked two.
Todd Benzinger drove in three runs as the Royals beat Charlie Hough (7-8).
Rangers 10, Yankees 2
NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Brown and Erie Plunk used different methods to clear opposition runners off the bases.
Brown pitched out of tight spots, especially in the sixth inning. Plunk, on the other hand, gave up home runs — three, in fact — and the Yankees lost a 10-2 decision to the Rangers Monday night.
“Overall. I was satisfied. I made aAmerican League

and it was a big homer,” Rangers Manager Bobby Valentine said.
Penal Ii had not homered in more than two seasons since June 20, 1989 when he cashed rn off Mike Boddick-er at Fenway Park, 223 games ago and a span of 544 at-bats.
“I haven’t been able to drive the ball the way I feel I’m capable of this season,” Ptiralli said. “I decided to try to put it out of my mind. I might have been pulling too much pressure on myself.”
Brown had his difficult moments in the sixth when he gave up four hits and issued his only walk while the Yankees scored both their runs.Swim practices ongoing
