Hafner bad for O's at any level

Guess we should be thankful for small favors. At least Travis Hafner was finally picking on somebody his own size. He singled twice and reached base three times in all in the Indians' 6-1 victory, but the game ball belonged to former No. 1 draft pick Jeremy Sowers, who gave up just four hits over eight innings to reverse some bad numbers on the road and against the Orioles.

Hafner was activated for tonight's game after leading the Double-A Akron Aeros to victory over the Bowie Baysox in the best-of-five Eastern League Southern Division playoffs. He had not appeared in a major league game since May 23 because of a shoulder injury.

O's starter Radhames Liz needed 102 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings, so at least he got a full workout.

Wishing you were here dept.: Blue Jays pitcher A.J. Burnett pitched seven innings and gave up one hit in a 3-1 victory over the White Sox in the first game of a doubleheader. The Jays went on to sweep the twinbill and now have a 10-game winning streak.
