* BLUE JAYS: Toronto's five errors in its 7-1 loss last night to the Rangers were a season high, and one shy of the club record, set on May 13, 1982, against Texas at Arlington Stadium.

* BREWERS: Shortstop Pat Listach left yesterday's game in the eighth inning with a contusion on his right shoulder, an injury suffered after he dove for a Lance Johnson single in the eighth. . . . Outfielder Darryl Hamilton will consult another specialist for his jammed thumb today. . . . Kevin Reimer had his 12-game hitting streak stopped yesterday.

* INDIANS: Cleveland's five-game winning streak is its longest this year, and it equals its longest since its won six in a row in September 1990. . . . In five games this month, Cleveland's bullpen has gone 2-0 with three saves and an ERA of 0.69.

* MARINERS: Mike Felder is hitting .412, 7-for-17, in the first inning this year. . . . Pete O'Brien is hitless in his past 15 at bats. . . . Seattle has hit 19 home runs in its past 17 games.

* RANGERS: Texas optioned rookie reliever Jeff Bronkey to Class AAA Oklahoma City to make room for Nolan Ryan. Ryan will be activated prior to tomorrow's start against the Royals. . . . Kenny Rogers recorded his fifth pickoff of the season in the eighth inning last night.

* RED SOX: Andre Dawson faced his eighth knee operation today and hoped to be playing for the Boston Red Sox within a month after the arthroscopic procedure for torn cartilage in his right knee. The outfielder-designated hitter had four operations on his right knee in his previous 17 major-league seasons. Dawson, placed on the 15-day disabled list after the Red Sox' game with Oakland last night, was to have the surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Mass. Infielder Jeff Richardson was recalled from Pawtucket of the International League.

* ROYALS: With yesterday's win over the Tigers, Kevin Appier improved to 5-1 lifetime against Detroit.

* TIGERS: Pitcher David Wells continued to have great control, not walking a batter in eight innings yesterday. In 38 2/3 innings, he has walked only five batters, and never more than two in a game. . . . Wells missed a chance to become the first Tiger to open the season 5-0 since another left-hander, Frank Tanana, in 1988.

* WHITE SOX: Lance Johnson's three hits yesterday raised his career total to 600.
