"Kind of hard to win a game when you give one of the greatest pitchers in baseball a 6-0 lead."

Red Sox RHP Matt Clement, after getting rocked for six runs in 22/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees and LHP Randy Johnson


Athletics: DH Erubiel Durazo will see a doctor for further examination on his sore left elbow when Oakland visits Anaheim tomorrow.

Indians: Placed RHP Matt Miller on the 15-day disabled list with tightness in his right forearm.

The team also recalled RHP Kazuhito Tadano was from Class AAA Buffalo, and he gave up one run over four innings in relief of Jake Westbrook yesterday.

Rangers: OF Laynce Nix (jammed left shoulder) missed his second straight game and could go on the DL.

Red Sox: Signed OF Gabe Kapler, who was released by his Japanese team, and placed him on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain.

Kapler, a backup outfielder with Boston last season, left the World Series champs in November when he signed a one-year contract with the Yomiuri Giants.



Number of consecutive starts Mark Buehrle has pitched at least six innings, the longest streak by a White Sox pitcher since Jack McDowell's 48-game streak from July 1992 to September 1993
