MLB Headline News

 NEW YORK (AP) -Chien-Ming Wang carried his bid for a perfect game into the eighth inning before Ben Broussard homered with one out, leading the New York Yankees over the Seattle Mariners 8-1 on Saturday.
Facing a Mariners team that got season highs of 15 runs and 20 hits the previous night, Wang (1-2) was in control the whole way. He was trying for the 16th perfect game since 1900, including Don Larsen's gem for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series.
Randy Johnson has the last perfect game in the majors, for Arizona at Atlanta on May 18, 2004.
Brian Bruney took over for Wang to begin the ninth and finished off the two-hitter.
New York broke open the game in the sixth when Jeff Weaver (0-5) started struggling with his control. Weaver walked Jason Giambi with runners on first and third and then hit Hideki Matsui with a pitch to force in a run, making it 2-0.
Jorge Posada had a run-scoring single and Melky Cabrera walked with the bases loaded before Derek Jeter chased Weaver with a two-out, two-run double.
White Sox 6, Angels 3
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jon Garland won for the first time this season and Chicago ended a five-game losing streak.
Garland (1-2), an 18-game winner in each of the past two seasons, gave up three runs and eight hits over seven-plus innings. Bobby Jenks, the fourth Chicago pitcher, worked a perfect ninth for his ninth save in 10 attempts.
After squandering an early 3-0 lead, the White Sox went ahead in the sixth against John Lackey (4-3). A.J. Pierzynski doubled just inside the left-field line and Joe Crede's two-out single made it 4-3.
The Angels tied it in the fifth with an RBI double by Chone Figgins, his second hit in 16 at-bats since coming off the disabled list.
