Minnesota pitcher Brad Radke first base for an out after catching Rany Winn's grounder. Gooden continues to impress Associated Press DETROIT - On a cool September night, Dwight Gooden found his control and got stronger as the game went along. It was exactly what the Cleveland Indians had hoped for. Gooden, with excellent de fensive support, won again on the road as the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 last night for their fourth win in five games. "We brought him here to be Doc Gooden," Indians manager Mike Hargrove said. "In certain respects, he may even have exceeded our ex pectations." Gooden (7-6) is 5-2 in nine road starts this season. Against the Tigers, he went seven innings for the third time this year, giving up five hits and one walk with five strikeouts. "The key thing was I had good control tonight," said Gooden, who won his fourth straight decision. "In this park, you have to make good pitches. There's nobody in their lineup you can really pitch around. Believe me, if anybody says they like pitch ing in close ballgames, they're lying." Gooden got all his strikeouts after the fourth inning. Mike Jackson got two outs for his 35th save in 40 chances. Sandy Alomar and Enrique Wilson, the last two batters in Cleveland's order, each singled off Justin Thompson (10-13) in the third and scored on Kenny Lofton's double into the left-field corner for a 2-0 lead. Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 3(11) TORONTO Shannon Stewart drove in the winning run with his fourth hit, and Toronto beat Boston for its Woodall hits homer to defeat Colorado Associated Press MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee pitcher Brad Woodall homered and pitched six strong innings, and Dave Nils-son hit a pair of two-run homers in the Brewers' 7-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Woodall (7-8), who got his first victory against Colorado after two losses, struck out seven and allowed three runs on nine hits. John Thomson (8-10), who did not allow a hit until the fourth inning, gave up six hits and five runs in six innings. Milwaukee broke a 2-2 tie with three runs in the fifth on home runs by Woodall and Nilsson. wooaan s first career home run, a solo shot to right, put the Brewers up 3-2. Mark Loretta walked with two outs and Nilsson followed with his second two-run shot of the game, his fifth in seven games. Burnitz hit a two-run homer, his 32nd, in the eighth, to make it 7-3.

In the opener of a four-game series, the Blue Jays overcame Pedro Martinez and moved within a half-game of overtaking Texas for second place in the AL wild-card race. Martinez gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings, struck out 11 and walked three. With the score 3-3 in the 11th, Dario Veras (0-1) walked Tony Fernandez leading off. Craig Grebeck's one-out grounder advanced the runner and Veras, called up from the minors earlier in the day, hit Alex Gonzalez in the back with a pitch. Stewart then singled to short center, making him 4-for-5. Twins S, Devil Rays 4 (12) MINNEAPOLIS - Todd Walker doubled and scored on Terry Steinbach's single in the 12th inning, giving Minnesota a win over Tampa Bay. A season-low crowd of 7,072 at the Metrodome saw the Twins rally twice. Minnesota made it 3-3 with a run in the ninth, and Matt Lawton's two-out homer in the 10th tied it at 4-4.

The Pirates lost their sixth in a row and are one loss away from being mathematically eliminated from the NL Central race. Matt Williams' two-out single in the third inning drove in the only run the left-handed Anderson (11-12) needed to outpitch Francisco Cordova (12-12), who struck out 10 while allowing only four hits. Anderson didn't allow a runner past second base while striking out three and, as usual, walking none. He has walked only seven since June 13 and his average of 1.2 walks per nine innings is tied with the Mets' Rick Reed as the best in the NL Sounds in final By MAURICE PATTON Sports Writer Sometimes, it even takes a while to get used to home. Once the Nashville Sounds did so, they were a tough team to beat, as last night's 3-2 victory over Memphis before 7,504 at Greer Stadium proved. "We played well the last couple of homestands," Sounds Manager Trent Jewett said after his team completed a 16-4 mark over its last 20 games in Nashville with the win, which came when Chris Wimmer scored from third on a wild pitch in the ninth inning. "Home means something to everybody," Jewett continued. "When it's a good atmosphere, good things tend to happen. But changing affiliates, home's not home until you've had time to make it home. When we come back next year, hopefully some of our players will be at home from the first series." Completing their first season at Greer Stadium, the Triple-A team of the Pittsburgh Pirates capped a 39-33 campaign on their turf with the victory, which was aided by another strong pitching performance by starter Jason Phillips.

He was in line for the win following Tim Edge's solo homer in the seventh, but Memphis knotted the game at 2-all off reliever Jimmy Anderson. "Every start Jason's had here has been a quality start," Edge said. "He's been exceptional since he's been here. It would have been nice to get him this win." Nashville moved to 67-73 and heads to New Orleans for a four-game series to finish the year. "It's disappointing we're not going to be able to continue our home games in the playoffs," Jewett said. "But this was a good representation of what this team has been, and is, about." Nashville went out front 1-0 when T.J. Staton singled in the second and scored on Jeff Patzke's base hit. Memphis tied the game with Nate Dish-ington's solo homer in the fourth. "At one point, the home run was the only ball they'd hit hard," Jewett said. "Jason was very impressive.

Anderson, who allowed three hits in two innings, fell into the win as he was the pitcher of record when Wimmer doubled to open the ninth, moved to third on Edge's sacrifice and scored when Curtis King uncorked a wild pitch during the at-bat of Darrell Whitmore who was pinch-hitting for Anderson. "That's a reaction play," Wimmer said of the gamewin-ner. "I saw it got away and went, and the umpire called me safe. It probably wasnt very smart; if I'm out, I look like a goat there."
