Chad Curtis drove in a run in his fourth straight game for the first time in his career. . . . Third baseman Kelly Gruber, who has missed the first 31 games with a torn left rotator cuff, will be assigned to the Angels' Single-A team in Palm Springs, Calif., on Monday.

* BLUE JAYS: Pitcher Dave Stewart will be recalled from the disabled list today to make his first start for Toronto. . . . Shortstop Dick Schofield left yesterday's game in the eighth inning with an injury to his left forearm after colliding with Milt Cuyler as the Tiger stole second base.

* BREWERS: Bill Wegman has pitched six innings or more in seven of his eight starts this season.

* INDIANS: Catcher Sandy Alomar, who has been on the disabled list since May 1, probably will have surgery to repair the bulging disk in his back, Cleveland manager Mike Hargrove said yesterday. "I'd say the chances of him having surgery are 90 percent," Hargrove said. . . . In his past 19 games, Felix Fermin is batting .344, 22-for-64.

* WHITE SOX: Mayor Richard M. Daley said yesterday he has asked for building inspectors to look at cracks in three public concourses at the 2-year-old, $134.8 million Comiskey Park. Repair of cracks in the concrete may cost up to $300,000 to repair, officials said.

* YANKEES: Jimmy Key's loss yesterday to the Brewers was his first in 14 starts including postseason since last Sept. 8, ending a 10-0 streak.
