CHASING AARON
Barry Bonds hit 742nd home run Saturday night, moving within 13 of Hank Aaron's career record. It was Bonds' eighth home run of the season - in 56 at-bats, but San Francisco lost 5-4 at Arizona.

STRANGE PLAY
Umpires added a run to Baltimore's total three innings after it appeared to be waved off in the third and the Orioles beat Cleveland 7-4 Saturday night. The bizarre sequence started with Baltimore leading 2-1 in the top of the third. Ramon Hernandez hit a line drive to center field that Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore caught and Nick Markakis, who was on third, tagged up and headed for home and appeared to cross the plate before Miguel Tejada was doubled off first. Yet, plate umpire Marvin Hudson waved off the run. The umpiring crew conferred separately with Baltimore manager Sam Perlozzo and Cleveland's Eric Wedge twice after the top of the third. After the Indians scored a run in the fifth to tie it at 2, it was announced in the bottom of the sixth that the Orioles' run in the third had counted, giving Baltimore a 3-2 lead. The Indians then announced they were playing the game under protest.

STREAKS
s unbeaten against St. Louis in his last eight starts, going 5-0 with a 1.54 ERA (58 2-3 innings) over that stretch. With the 8-1 win, the Cubs have now won three in a row for the first time since Sept. 16-18 of last season. Albert Pujols extended his hitting streak to eight games with a home run for the Cardinals.

SNAPPED
The Yankees snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Saturday, avoiding their first eight-game skid since August 1995. ... The Astros snapped a seven-game skid with a 10-1 win over the Brewers. It also marked the first time the Brewers scored fewer than two runs in a game this season. ... Baltimore snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-4 win over Cleveland, ending the Indians' six-game winning streak.

SIDELINED
White Sox slugger Jim Thome was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib cage injury after Chicago's 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. Thome, who did not play on Saturday, left Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels after fouling off a pitch in the first inning. He re-aggravated a right rib cage injury that caused him to miss the two previous games. The White Sox recalled outfielder Ryan Sweeney from Triple-A Charlotte. Sweeney hit .256 with two homers for Charlotte.

STRUGGLING
Seattle starter Jeff Weaver recorded just one out in an 8-3 loss to Kansas City on Saturday, while giving up seven hits and six runs. Winless, and with an ERA already in double-figures, Weaver may have cemented his removal from Seattle's rotation. Signed for $8.325 million in the offseason, Weaver surrendered five consecutive hits to start the game.

SPEAKING
``They said no throwing tomorrow at least.'' - Yankees starting pitcher Jeff Karstens after breaking his leg in New York's 3-1 win over Boston on Saturday. On his first pitch of the game against Boston, Karstens was hit on the side of his knee by Julio Lugo's liner. He won't need surgery and is expected to return this season, team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon said.
