Florida's Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning before giving up a broken-bat leadoff single to Colorado's Dexter Fowler, and the host Marlins beat the Rockies, 4-1, last night. Sanchez (1-1) struck out nine and allowed one unearned run as he bid for his second career no-hitter before settling for a one-hitter. He walked three, including Fowler to lead off the game. A two-out fielding error by first baseman Gaby Sanchez allowed Fowler to score. On Sanchez's 116th pitch of the night, Fowler singled to right past second baseman Omar Infante and ended the no-hitter.

Bill Buckner times two "Croquet, anyone?" That's what Atlanta Braves announcer Joe Simpson said after seeing the unbelievable double error committed by Gaby Sanchez and Dan Uggla on Monday night. The ball went through the legs of both of the Florida Marlins players on one play. With Uggla playing a very deep second in the first inning, Braves catcher Brian McCann pulled a grounder that went through the wickets of first baseman Sanchez and Uggla. The double flub allowed McCann to reach safely and base runner Martin Prado to go from first to third.

Chris Perez is treading on dangerous ground. He's speaking his mind. On Saturday, the Indians' all-star closer ripped the fans of Cleveland for not supporting the team with their hard-earned dollars. The righthander told reporters, "Nobody wants to play in front of 5,000 fans. We know the weather stinks, but [other players] see that . "You had a choice of playing in St. Louis where you get 40,000 like [Carlos] Beltran chose to do, or you can come to Cleveland.

MIAMI - Carlos Ruiz had to wait an inning to launch the game-winner. At the plate with one out in the ninth inning of a tie game, the catcher watched the Phillies' shot at winning in regulation end with two straight outs on the basepaths. But when he finally got a chance to swing, he made it count, leading off the 10th inning with a solo home run to leftfield that lifted the Phillies to a 5-4 win that capped a series sweep over the Marlins. It was a whacky game, to say the least, one that featured blown leads by both teams, a controversial fair-or-foul call, and a save by closer Brad Lidge.

The kid sure knows how to answer a call. Starlin Castro got awakened by his first call to the majors yesterday and arrived in historic style, hitting a three-run homer in his first at-bat and driving in a record six runs during the Chicago Cubs' 14-7 victory over the Reds in Cincinnati. "The kid - what a debut!" manager Lou Piniella said. "He's got to be ecstatic. He should be. " The 20-year-old became the youngest shortstop in Cubs history when he stepped onto the field for the first time.

Cincinnati put runners in scoring position in the second, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings but Wolf managed to work his way out of trouble every time.

Johnny Cueto (2-1) pitched a one-hitter for his first major league complete game, allowing only a third-inning single that went off shortstop Paul Janish's glove, and the visiting Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-0, last night for their fourth consecutive win. The Pirates' only hit was by Ronny Cedeno - and it nearly wasn't one. Janish managed to deflect Cedeno's one-out grounder into leftfield, barely missing making the play....

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - When Kyle Kendrick last pitched here in late May, he did not allow an earned run in six innings. But afterward, Charlie Manuel criticized his fifth starter for having a slow pace on the mound, accusing him of "acting like he's afraid to throw the ball. " On July 20, the Phillies, still not satisfied with his progress, demoted Kendrick to triple A. Of course, Kendrick replaced himself in the rotation four days later. He has yet to do anything wrong since. The righthander won his seventh game of the season Wednesday, a 7-2 Phillies victory over the Marlins at Sun Life Stadium after a 58-minute rain delay.

Police believe many fans witnessed the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan that left him critically injured after the Opening Day game at Dodger Stadium and they're asking for their help in identifying the attackers. Two men in Dodgers clothing followed three men in Giants gear as they walked to their car after Thursday night's 2-1 Dodgers victory, Sgt. Sanford Rosenberg said. He said the men yelled slurs against the Giants and began kicking and punching the men, causing one victim to suffer a head injury.
