Managing general partner Vince Naimoli employed not one but two good-luck charms on Saturday to help the team break its losing streak. In his right pocket he had a small flashlight with a green beam that an associate had given him. "It's the green ray," he said.

He also made a pregame visit to the clubhouse for a bowl of soup. "I hadn't done that in a long time," he said.
