A sellout crowd kicked with excitement last night as 30 pregnant women and their nervous husbands waited to see who would be the first to go into labor and win a year's supply of diapers. In the latest and perhaps strangest twist on the old-time ballpark giveaway, the Class A Lowell Spinners Invited local expectant mothers for the first-ever "Birth Night." Women who registered were given free tickets to the game and the promise of prizes. None went into labor during the game, though the women did begin leaving midway through the game In varying degrees of discomfort. The first to deliver a baby will still win if she notifies the team. "Nobody's even warming up at this point," said Dr. Ed Li-pham, who had four paramedics and ambulances. "You can't do it on command. It's a matter of waiting for nature to run Its course." Led by childbirth coach Linda Jezek, the full house of 5,000 and threatening to multiply at any minute joined the women in their breathing exercises. "All right, everybody take a nice big breath and blow it out," she said over the loudspeaker. "Remember: Think birth tonight," the PA announcer added, as the sound of a crying baby blared in the background. The team also sponsored contests to name the baby and guess the time of delivery. "We heard there's someone that's overdue," said Lisa Armstrong, who's been having "mild contractions" all week. "It'll be a tight race." One man called owner Joann Weber as his wife began labor in the next room. -ASSOCIATED PRESS iVr :.kl fi1 I v 11 1 AP ! American Conference Central Division W L Pet.

He felt even better after beating them. Paul Konerko hit a pair of solo home runs, leading Snyder and the Chicago White Sox over the New York Yankees 5-1 yesterday. The Yankees have lost two straight and three of their last 10. "Pitching against the best, it's an honor," Snyder said of the defending World Series champions. "Going against the Yankees, they have so much tradition and history it's nice to do what I did." Snyder (8-6) gave up one run and three hits in seven innings. He won for the first time since being called up Friday from Triple-A Charlotte, where he went 3-0 in three starts. Keith Foulke got the last six outs for his fifth save. Rangers 3, Orioles 1 BALTIMORE - Mike Morgan pitched six innings of three-hit ball in his 400th career start, and the Texas Rangers hit three solo homers off Juan Guzman in a win over the Baltimore Orioles. Roberto Kelly, Royce Clayton and Ivan Rodriguez connected for the Rangers, whose 10th win in 11 games expanded their lead in the AL West to a season-high nine games. Texas is 12-2 since the All-Star break. Morgan (11-6) allowed one run, struck out two and walked two in taking over the team lead in wins. Mariners 8, Royals 4 KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Alex Rodriguez homered and John Halama won his eighth straight decision as the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals.

The game was scoreless until the bottom of the sixth when David Hulse's RBI single gave Memphis a 1-0 lead. Nashville's Aramis Ramirez tied the game in the eighth with his 18th homer of the season. Then in the ninth, Kevin Polcovich drove in a run to break the tie and Hermansen homered for the final margin. Matt Ryan (6-2) was the winner and Kevin Crafton (0-1) suffered the loss. Hermansen's 27th homer extended his hitting streak to eight games. He leads the PCL with 84 RBI. In his last eight games, Hermansen has six homers and 16 RBI. "He hasn't surprised anybody," Sounds Manager Trent Jewett said. "The tremendous thing about Chad is he's not too impressed with what he's done." The Sounds increased their lead to 7 12 games over Oklahoma in the Eastern Division. "We pitched good ' and played good defense. I'd certainly like to crank it up earlier in the game, but I don't want to complain," jewett said. It was the second night in a row Hermansen had a big blow. On Wednesday, Herman-sen and Darryl Brinkley hit three-run homers .as' the Sounds beat Memphis 154. ....... 1 Lr l I' ) K , I : V . ij i - i f. -t i -t .i ft V t v..
