Mariners finish Clemens' streak Associated Press TORONTO Roger Clemens lost Wednesday for the first time after 11 victories this season when the Seattle Mariners beat the Toronto Blue Jays 15-1 behind the key pitching of Jeff Fassero.

Fassero (6-2) allowed five hits and one run, struck out seven and walked two. Clemens suffered his first loss since the New York Yankees beat him 4-2 at Fenway Park on Sept. 28, 1996, when he was with the Boston Red Sox. Clemens (11-1) gave up five runs, four earned, on seven hits with five strikeouts and three walks over seven plus innings. Alex Rodriguez and Brent Gates each had two hits off Clemens, while Rodriguez scored and drove in a run to lead the Mariners to their seventh win in their last nine games.

Galarraga's two RBIs increased his major-league lead to 68, while Reed drove in three runs. Fred McGriff, Chipper Jones and Eddie Perez homered for Atlanta. The Rockies won twice in the three-game series with Atlanta and the paid crowd of 48,633 and actual attendance of 50,212 were Rockies franchise records. John Thomson (2-4) went 6 2-3 innings to earn his second career win.

He allowed four runs and nine hits. Chris Brock (0-1) lost in his big league debut. Called up this week from Triple-A Richmond, he left after issuing a leadoff walk in the fifth inning after allowing seven hits and two runs.

On Wednesday, he was finally a winner after Curtis Pride's two-run single in the eighth inning helped rally the Detroit Tigers to a 4-2 win over the Oakland Athletics. The win snapped a personal nine-game losing streak longest in the majors for Brocail (1-4). He hadn't won since pitching Houston past Cincinnati on April 19, 1996.

"When you lose as many ball-games as I have in the past, you know exactly how long if been," Brocail said. "The most positive thing I've had in two years was the save." Brocail was Detroit's opening day starter, but went to the bullpen after four starts. He picked up two saves in a brief stint as a closer. "His mechanics got fouled up, but thafs probably my fault as much as anything," Tigers manager Buddy Bell said. "I wasn't using him." Brocail worked two shutout innings against the A's, giving up three hits with a strikeout after starter Felipe Lira exited trailing 2-1 in the sixth.

Pride's bases-loaded single off Mike Mohler capped a three-run rally that gave the Tigers a sweep of the two-game series. The Tigers had tied the game on pinch-hitter Jody Reed's bases-loaded sacrifice fly. Pride normally wouldn't have batted against the left-handed Mohler. But the Tigers were shorthanded after Bobby Higginson was a late scratch with a strained abdominal muscle and Travis Fryman left in the third inning with neck spasms. Jones pitched the ninth for his eighth save.

He struck out Matt Stairs, who homered off him last week at Oakland, to end the game. -The thing about Jones is he's showing a lot of confidence, which he should," Bell said. "When he shows us that confidence, he picks everybody else up."

He moved to third on a fielder's choice.

Derek Mitchell laid down a suicide squeeze bunt toward the mound, allowing Wakeland to score. Lansing used a nice piece of luck to tie the game at two in the seventh inning. Steve Medrano walked and Moore singled. Miranda hit into a fielder's choice. Layne came up big again, slamming a line drive for a single.

But this wasn't a garden-variety liner. It first hit the left leg of West Michigan reliever Romulo Martinez, caroming inta the hole between second and first. Medrano scored on the creative single. "I'll take them anyway I can get them," Layne said of his unusual hit. "I'm just trying to get back to the way I felt comfortable hitting.

I'm feeling good at the plate." The Lugnuts added another run in the seventh more conventionally for a 3-2 lead. Kit Pellow singled to left, driving in Miranda. One mistake by Moreno in the seventh killed Lansing's short-lived lead. Moreno threw another high fastball and Mitchell jumped on it for a two-run homer to right. Moreno (1-5) took the loss, with West Michigan reliever Mark Za-marripa (2-1) picking up the win.
