Glavine Records Win #297; Bedard Blanks Yanks

American League Boston 1 Seattle 2, 11 innings - Jose Lopez doubled with one out in the bottom of the 11th sending Ichiro Suzuki around from first with the winning run as the Mariners outlasted Boston. Seattle has won 5 straight to close to within 5 games of the Angels in the AL West. LA has lost 3 straight. NY Yankees 0 Baltimore 4 - Erik Bedard (right) outdueled Roger Clemens, blanking the pinstripers on 2 hits over 7 innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. Bedard, 6-4, struck out 8, increasing his MLB-leading total to 129. Aubrey Huff's 3-run homer off Clemens in the 6th was the big blow for the O's. Kansas City 1 LA Angels 0 - Kansas City doesn't get many ace pitching performances, but some of the better ones come from Jorge De La Rosa (5-9), who scattered 10 hits over 6 innings to lead the Royals over the Angels and complete the unlikely 3-game sweep at LA.

Colorado 4 Chi Cubs 6 - The Cubs won their 6th straight and Carlos Zambrano improved to 9-6, allowing 2 runs over 6 innings while fanning 8.

The Rockies dropped 6 1/2 back of co-leaders San Diego and Arizona in the West. LA Dodgers 0 Arizona 2 - Brandon Webb gave up 7 hits and walked 5, but managed to keep the Dodgers off the scoreboard for 7 innings.
