Morris (6-7) allowed one earned run and eight hits in seven innings before Eric King finished. American League "I thought I threw decent, but when you get 11 runs, obviously it's the offense that you want to talk about, not pitching," said Morris, who raised his lifetime record to 21-8 against Cleveland. "Our hitters were the story." Detroit, which had 13 hits, has won four straight and moved into second place in the American League East. The Tigers scored three runs in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie. Cleveland pitcher John Farrell (6-4) walked Chet Lemon with two outs and Lemon took third on a single by Matt Nokes. Luis Salazar beat out a bunt single, scoring Lemon, and Dave Bergman's run-scoring single knocked out Farrell. Pettis greeted reliever Bud Black with an RBI single. Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 3 TORONTO Sil Campusano's run-scoring single with two outs in the 10th inning gave Toronto a victory over Boston, the Blue Jays' eighth straight victory over the Red Sox. Fred McGriff led off the 10th with a single off Dennis Lamp (1-2). After Kelly Gruber's forceout, Nelson Liriano's groundout moved Gruber to second and Campusano singled. Another late rally gives Reds THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Reds' Dave Concepcion (left) is held back by umpire Bruce Froemming while protesting a call by plate ump Mark Hirschbeck. Concepcion was ejected for arguing after his fifth-inning strikeout. Brown's effort futile By SCOTT ROSENBERG Palm Beach Post Staff Writer PORT ST. LUCIE - Kevin Brown pitched well in his first seven starts this season for the St. Lucie Mets. But each time, the Mets had trouble scoring runs and each time. Brown got no decision. Going into Saturday night's game against West Palm Beach, Brown had won three in a row and the Mets supplied him with plenty of run support, scoring 23 in three games. But the old problem returned. Against three Expos pitchers Saturday, St. Lucie managed just two hits. Brown allowed just an unearned run in the ninth, but it was enough to give West Palm Beach a 1-0 win at the St. Lucie County Sports Complex. Brown, a 22-year-old lefthander, allowed just four hits, walked one and struck out 10. But two errors in the top of the ninth, one by Brown (3-3) and one by shortstop Juan Villanueva, produced the winning run. St. Lucie is 33-31. Brown tly ew the ball into center field tryinto get a force at second Rhoden first AL pitcher to start as designated hitter The Associated Press NEW YORK - Rick Rhoden of the New York Yankees on Saturday became the first pitcher to start a game as a designated hitter since the American League adopted the rule in 1973. Rhoden, who pitched and lost to Baltimore on Friday night, batted in the No. 7 spot Saturday against the Orioles and grounded to third against Jeff Ballard in the third inning in his first at-bat and hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth. "Art told me that I was DHing," Rhoden said, referring to Yankees pitching coach Art Fowler. "I thought he was kidding. Obviously, I was very surprised. Once the surprise wore off, I had to start thinking about not embarrassing myself. If I thought this was going to happen, I would have practiced all along." Rhoden borrowed a bat from first baseman Don Mattingly, who is on the disabled list. Yankees manager Billy Martin said he used Rhoden as the DH because Willie Randolph and Rickey Henderson also are hurt and he thought Jose Cruz and Claudell Washington would have Duane Ward (3-0) pitched three innings of one-hit relief, striking out one and walking one. The Blue Jays have not lost to Boston since Roger Clemens beat them last Aug. 10. Ranee Mulliniks tied the score in the eighth with an RBI double off Florida State League on a bunt, and Villanueva couldn't field the potential inning-ending double play. Scott Clemo, running for pinch-hitter Terrell Hansen, who singled, came home on Villan-ueva's error, St. Lucie's 100th error of the year. Hansen joined the Expos Saturday. "It's rough," Brown said. "But at least I didn't get a no-decision. I felt great all night. But I just came up a little short." The win was a big one for the Expos (36-27) and manager Felipe Alou, who are battling Fort Lauderdale, Baseball City and Lakeland for the Florida State League's wildcard playoff spot. The Expos have seven games left in the FSL's first half. "We can't lose any more games, so this was a big one," Alou said. "It was a well-pitched game by both sides. That Kevin Brown really looked good." Hansen led rff the ninth with a single to left. Jj-ner Munoz bunted, '' trouble hitting Ballard. "This is nothing new. I said it in spring training," Martin said. "He's a good hitter. With the injuries that I have, and with my other available hitters not very good at hitting slow, breaking pitches, I didn't have much else to do." Although no pitcher had started as a designated hitter, several have batted since the DH rule was adopted by the AL. Mike Henneman of the Detroit Tigers was the last AL pitcher to bat, striking out against Jose Nunez of the Toronto Blue Jays last Sept. 26. Rhoden, 35, was one of the top-hitting pitchers in the National League before was was traded to the Yankees by the Pittsburgh Pirates on Nov. 26, 1986. He has a .239 career average with nine home runs in 732 at-bats and batted .300 or better in 1976, '80 and '84. He led NL pitchers with a .278 batting average in 1986. Rhoden, 2-5 with a 5.03 ERA this season, last batted for the Pirates on Sept. 30, 1986, going 2-for-3 against the St. Louis Cardinals with a double and a home run off Danny Cox. Lee Smith, scoring Gruber, who singled with two outs. Smith had converted four consecutive save opportunities. Boston took a 2-0 lead in the first on run-scoring singles by Rick Cer-one and Mike Greenwell. Palm Beach Post Wire Services SAN FRANCISCO - Cincinnati's second consecutive six-run eighth inning was better late than never for Pete Rose Saturday. But Rose wishes it wasn't so late. The Reds also scored six runs in the eighth Friday night, but it was after the Giants had taken a 9-0 lead. "I'd rather have them in the first inning," Rose said after the Reds defeated the San Francisco Giants 7-2. "I'm not complaining about the win but I wasn't pleased about the execution." The Reds won for only the sixth time in their last 20 games. "We just got the breaks today," said Rose. With the Reds trailing 2-1, Chris Sabo opened the eighth by hitting his seventh home run on the first pitch from reliever Craig Lefferts (1-4). A walk to Kal Daniels, Eric Davis' fourth single and a walk to Nick Esasky loaded the bases, and with one out Terry McGriff hit a grounder to shortstop. Matt Williams tried for a force at the plate, but his throw was wide for an error as Daniels scored with the go-ahead run. Jeff Treadway followed with a grounder to shortstop and Davis beat Williams' throw home. Barry Larkin's two-out, two-run double and Daniels bases-loaded walk completed the scoring. Pirates 8, Phillies 2 PITTSBURGH - Andy Van Slyke homered and drove in four runs and Mike Dunne pitched a five-hitter as Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia. Dunne (4-4) overcame 10 walks and pitched his first complete game in 10 starts. He struck out four. Sid Bream hit a solo homer and a sacrifice fly during a four-run fifth as Expos Brown picked up the ball and threw it into center field. John VanderWal's sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third. Brown intentionally walked Tyrone Kingwood. On a 3-2 pitch, Garrett Nago hit what appeared to be a double-play ball to Villanueva. But he couldn't field it, and Clemo scored the game's only run. "I just lost it," Villanueva said of the ground ball. "It was between the runner and the base, and I just couldn't get it. It was right in my hands. I just lost it." "Kevin pitched outstanding. You can't get any better than that," Mets manager Clint Hurdle said. "He left his guts on the mound. There were some tough situations where we stayed with him, and he stood right there with them, toe-to-toe. "I thought Kevin's throw to second was catchable. And that grounder had double play written all over it. Juan was looking at the runner and you just can't do that. "But you've got to give their staff credit. (Three pitchers) held us to two knocks and a goose egg." Expos starter Ross Jones entered the gam with a 1.78 ERA Yankees 8, Orioles 6 NEW YORK - Rookie Jay Buhner hit his first major-league grand slam and John Candelaria won his seventh straight start as New York beat Baltimore. The victory kept the Yankees in first place in the AL East, two games ahead of the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians. White Sox 5, Brewers 3 CHICAGO - Daryl Boston homered in the third inning and scored the go-ahead run in the fifth after hitting a controversial triple as Chicago defeated Milwaukee. Boston's triple against Paul Mir-: abella (0-2) appeared to bounce in and out of the right-field seats for a ground-rule double, but first base umpire Mark Hirschbeck ruled that the ball hit the top of the fence. Milwaukee manager Tom Trebel-horn argued the call and was eject-' ed by third base umpire Rich Garcia. Steve Lyons singled to score Boston but the dispute between Trebel-horn and Garcia erupted again when the Milwaukee manager ap-' peared in the dugout runway and had to be told to leave by Garcia. Royals 7, Angels 0 ANAHEIM, Calif. - Mark Gubicza allowed only two hits and j Kurt Stillwell had the first four-hit ; game of his career, as Kansas City beat California. Both hits off Gubicza (8-5) were ; singles by Chili Davis in the fourth inning and an infield bounc- er by Darrell Miller in the eighth. ; Gubicza walked one and struck out ; nine, his high for the season. 7-2 win National League that put Pittsburgh ahead 6-2.

Expos 6, Mets 4 MONTREAL - Tim Wallach drove home three runs with a double and two singles as Montreal beat New York and sent the Mets to their fourth straight loss.
