Rangers fall to Mariners 8-1
SEATTLE (AP) — In Randy Johnson, the Seattle Mariners could have the AL Cy Young Award winner. His pitching could be taking the team to its first playoff berth.
The Texas Rangers, trying to stay in the league’s wild-card race, got a look at Johnson in one of the season’s biggest games Monday night. Johnson (15-2) was at his overpowering best for Seattle.
The 6-foot-10 left-hander allowed only three hits in eight innings, striking out 10, as the Mariners defeated Texas for the sixth time in seven games. The Mariners are 24-3 in games in which Johnson has started this year.
“He’s pitched awfully, awfully well all year," Mariners manager Lou Piniella said after Johnson’s 8-1 victory. “Certainly, I’m prejudiced because I manage him, but he’s been dominating all year.
Leading a four-team wild-card battle, the Mariners — winners of five of six and eight of 10 — woke up today only two games behind California in the AL West race.
Cowboys vexed by miscues
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Buffeted by fumbles, dropped passes, a missed extra point and a blown chip-shot field goal, somehow the Dallas Cowboys managed to win a game they should have lost.
Quarterback Troy Aikman stood in a somber locker room Monday and explained how the Cowboys overcame a slick ball, crowd noise and enough errors for a month of games.
“We have players on this team who refuse to lose no matter what’s happened," Aikman said. “We’ve grown accustomed to winning and this is a team that goes down fighting.”
Although the offense struggled through a mess of mistakes, Dallas beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-17 on Emmitt Smith's 31-yard touchdown run in overtime Sunday night.
Aikman botched a two-minute drill at the end of the first half when he let time run out. He also lost the ball on a fumbled snap. Smith lost the ball on a fumble and Michael Irvin, Daryl Johnston and Jay Novacek all dropped passes.

Irish, Longhorns look to regain winning tradition
AUSTIN (AP) — The last three times Texas and Notre Dame have met, a national championship was al stake. I’hat was nearly 20
On Saturday, when the No. 13 Longhorns visit the 2lst-ranked Fighting Irish, both teams will continue a battle of rebuilding.
Texas (2-0) is try mg to overcome a decade of decline, while Notre Dame (2-1) is out to show last year’s 6-5-1 record and a season-opening loss to Northwestern were aberrations.
“We want to be the best program in America," said Texas coach John Mackovic. “I am not suggesting we must win this game, but it’s a game that certainly draws a lot of attention.
“I call it a marquee game rather than just a big game because it pits two universities with great traditions and histones of college football against each other,” Mackovic said. “I believe our players come to Texas to play in games like this and look forward to playing the best teams in America.”
While Mackovic avoids placing emphasis on one game over another, this one clearly means a Un to Tex as.The Longhorns are on the verge of rejoining the Top IO for the first time since 1990 and for only the second time since 1984. This year’s team is w idely considered the best under Mackovic, who has felt heat over a 21-14-1 record in his fourth year at Texas. A victory — even against Fighting Irish team lower in the rankings — would boost the lamghoms in their struggle back to prominence.
“We need everyone to play well this week because we are playing one of the best programs in the nation,” Mackovic said. “I would expect Notre Dame to play their best football game of the year, and we have lo be ready for that.”
