Clark Clobbers 3 HR Against Indians
Tuesday, August 13th, 2002
Today was a special one for Tony Clark of the Oakland Athletics as he slammed three home runs in the 13-8 win over the Cleveland Indians.

"Lately, I been uppercutting the ball too much. I would hit it hard, but they just went sky high and stayed in the ballpark," he said to sportswriters after the game. "No big long outs for me in this game. I leveled out my swing and connected on the sweet spot three times. I knew they were gone the minute I hit 'em."

The Oakland first baseman had quite a game at Cleveland Stadium as he collected 3 hits in 4 at-bats, drove in 5, and scored 3 runs.

Tony Clark hit a solo-shot off Chris Mears in the 2nd, hit a three-run home run off Chris Mears in the 4th, flied out in the 5th, walked in the 7th and hit a solo-shot off Matt DeWitt in the 9th.

Thus far this season in 119 games Clark is batting .230 with 23 home runs, 68 RBIs and 58 runs scored. He has 100 hits in 434 at-bats.
Wohlers Finishes Off Pirates 5-4 for 300th Save
Monday, August 12th, 2002
The Colorado Rockies really celebrated their 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium. Not only did the Rockies win the game, but reliever Mark Wohlers recorded his 300th-career save. The bullpen ace stopped Pittsburgh on no runs and no hits in his 1 innings of work to seal the triumph.

"It's a pretty good milestone -- it doesn't happen very often," Wohlers said. "I was out there when my teammates needed me 300 times, and I'm real proud of that."

Wohlers's career numbers include 48 wins and 55 losses in 813 games with 300 saves, 3.10 ERA and 1211 strikeouts in 879.1 innings. Opposing hitters have averaged .193 against him.
