JULY 15; 1994' THE PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS-' i-T 1 ROYALS 5, TIGERS 2 (r At least, an wasn't added to spell Torotno' Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas Toronto Blue Jays rightfielder Joe Carter wore an eye-catching uniform for most of last night's game against the Texas Rangers. Carter's jersey spelled "Torotno," a mistake made by the manufacturer, Wilson Sporting Goods, according to a Blue Jays spokesman. Carter was unable to use his primary road uniform because it contained a patch attached when he played in Tuesday's All-Star Game. The misspelling was discovered when Blue Jays equipment personnel took the backup uniform out before the game, but it was too late to do anything about the mistake. In the sixth inning, Carter switched to the uniform with the All-Star patch.

At Kansas City, winner Kevin Appier 6-6) allowed a leadoff single by Tony Phillips and a two-run home run by Travis Fryman in the first, but did not give up another hit in eight innings. Jeff Montgomery pitched the ninth for his 15th save. BREWERS 6, TWINS 4 At Minneapolis, pinch-hitter Jeff Cirillo's two-run double off Mark Guthrie with one out in the ninth won it for Milwaukee. Turner Ward and Matt Mieske both hit one-out singles off Carl Willis (1-4) before Cirillo, a rookie batting just .107, greeted Guthrie with a double to left-center. ORIOLES 3, ANGELS 2 At Anaheim, Chris Sabo and Rafael Palmeiro hit back-to-back homers in the eighth inning off Mark Langston, and Ben McDonald pitched eight solid innings for Baltimore.

McDonald (11-6) allowed five hits, struck out five and walked three. Lee Smith earned his 30th save. YANKEES 13, MARINERS 8 At Seattle, Paul O'Neill, Mike Stanley and Bernie Williams hit two-run doubles in a seven-run ninth inning as New York rallied to hold on to first place in the AL East, a half-game ahead of Baltimore. The Yankees trailed 8-6 entering the ninth against Bobby Ayala (3-2). Steve Howe (2-0), the fourth Yankees pitcher, got the win.

Daily News Wire Services After a monthlong chase of the Cleveland Indians, the Chicago White Sox are back on top in the American League Central. And in this season of uncertainty, they know how important that can be.

"You'd be kidding yourself to say this is not a big series," winning pitcher Alex Fernandez said after the host White Sox won the opener of the division showdown last night night, 6-3. The White Sox, who were tied for first place with Cleveland on June 13 before dropping back, rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win their seventh straight and take a one-game lead over the Indians. The teams will meet seven more times in the next 10 days and then not again in the regular season. Chicago is 4-1 against Cleveland this year. "It's big when you are going to play another team eight times in 11 games for Fernandez said.

"You don't know when the strike is going to happen, if it happens," Fernandez (8-7), pitching on eight days' rest, struck out a career-high 12. He gave up three runs in the first two innings, but then got stronger, retiring 13 straight at one point He finished with a seven-hitter, one walk and his fourth complete game. "After the second inning he was dominating," Cleveland manager Mike Hargrove. Trailing, 3-2, in the seventh against Charles Nagy (7-6), the White Sox loaded the bases on singles by Norberto Martin and Tim Raines and a walk to Frank Thomas. Julio Franco then hit a game-tying sacrifice fly to finish Nagy, and Robin Ventura, celebrating his 27th birthday, punched an 0-2 pitch over short his third hit of the game to score Raines.

In other games: RED SOX 2, ATHLETICS 1 At Oakland, Boston's Roger Clemens, who held the A's hitless until Ruben Sierra led off the seventh by grounding a single into right, wound up with his 12th career two-hitter and his third of the season. Clemens (8-4) was within two outs of his second career one-hitter when Troy Neel hit his 11th homer. He struck out seven and walked four in his third complete game. RANGERS 7, BLUE JAYS 3 At Arlington, Texas, the first-place Rangers rode a four-run second inning off Todd Stottlemyre (5-7) to their eighth win in 12 games. Dean Palmer hit his 18th homer for Texas.

for criticizing the way he wears his baseball hat backward and lets his shirttail hang out during warmups. "It would be pretty hypocritical for me to apologize for something I feel," Showalter said. In a show of support for Griffey, the entire Mariners team wore their hats on backward during their stretching exercises. Some Mariners players wore their hats backward during batting practice, too. Said Griffey: "I'm not going to change for one person.

I've had my hat on this way since I was a kid. I'm not going to change now."
