Angels: Dave Hollins' throwing error in the first was his third error in three games after he made a total of just two in his previous 43 games. His 29 errors in 1997 were the most in the majors by a third baseman.

Rangers: Shortstop Kevin Elster left the game after the second because of muscle spasms in his lower back. He was replaced by Domingo Cedeno. Ivan Rodriguez's errorless streak came to an end at 61 games.

Royals/Angels: Jose Rosado was a reliever when the season started, but became a starter May 10 after Hipolito Pichardo went on the DL. Omar Olivares also began the season in the bullpen but replaced the ailing Jack McDowell in the starting rotation on May 1.

Twins: Will Clark's fifth-inning double broke an 0-for-16 hitless streak. The Rangers started the day hitting .372 against left-handers.

White Sox: Chicago has reached a tentative agreement with left-handed pitcher Jim Abbott on a minor-league contract. Abbott has not pitched in the majors since 1996, when he went 2-18 for the Angels.
