Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.
TORONTO - Brendan Donnelly's wild pitch with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 10th inning allowed Toronto to score the winning run and the Blue Jays beat the Angels 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Russ Adams led off Toronto's 10th with a single off Donnelly and Frank Catalanotto advanced him with a sacrifice bunt. Donnelly intentionally walked Vernon Wells to face rookie Aaron Hill, who ended an 0-for-18 slump with an infield single to third that loaded the bases.
Donnelly then bounced his first pitch to Corey Koskie, allowing Adams to slide in for the winning run.
Miguel Batista pitched two innings for the victory as the Angels lost their third straight.
Koskie, Toronto's third baseman, made a spectacular catch in foul territory in the top of the 10th. Chone Figgins hit a pop up near the stands in left and Koskie tracked it down before crashing to the turf.
Darin Erstad followed with a single and Batista intentionally walked Vladimir Guerrero, who had homered, to face Garret Anderson, who flied out.
Steve Finley followed with an infield single to load the bases, but Batista escaped the jam when he got Bengie Molina to hit a comebacker.
ROYALS 6, WHITE SOX 5 (13): Mike Sweeney homered twice and drove in five runs, and Emil Brown hit a run-scoring single in the 13th inning as host Kansas City overcame a five-run deficit.
Chicago starter Jon Garland, trying to become the first 16-game winner in the major leagues, left with a 5-2 lead but his bullpen couldn't hold it, partly because of sloppy fielding.
The Royals took two of three games in the series against the White Sox, whose 65-35 record is the best in the major leagues. Kansas City is 38-63, the second-worst record in the AL ahead of only Tampa Bay.
Shawn Camp, who was just promoted Monday from Triple-A Omaha, pitched a perfect 13th. The White Sox protested the game because Camp was not listed on the lineup.
ATHLETICS 5, INDIANS 4 (10): Marco Scutaro lined a single to left to drive in the winning run.
Mark Ellis hit a two-out single in the 10th and Jay Payton followed with a double against David Riske, who then gave up Scutaro's single. Rookie Huston Street pitched two innings for the victory.
The A's tied it in the ninth against closer Bob Wickman, who had converted his previous 11 saves but blew his fourth save opportunity of the year.
TWINS 7, YANKEES 3: Johan Santana had his best start in six weeks, shutting down host New York for seven innings.
Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with two walks on his 30th birthday, and Al Leiter struggled with his control and lost his second straight start for the Yankees, who fell two games back of Boston in the AL East.
The Twins broke open the game with three runs in the seventh against Tanyon Sturtze and stopped a 10-game regular-season losing streak at Yankee Stadium.
Santana scattered seven hits and only once came close to giving up a run - center fielder Torii Hunter threw out Derek Jeter at the plate in the third inning.
MARINERS 9, TIGERS 3: Jamie Moyer worked eight solid innings for his 201st career win and Richie Sexson homered twice for host Seattle.
Moyer used his usual array of curveballs and changeups, improving his career mark to 201-148.
He gave up two runs and eight hits with two walks and five strikeouts to win for the first time since July 8.
The Mariners won twice during the three-game series, racing to a 6-0 lead in the second inning against Tigers starter Mike Maroth.
RANGERS 11, ORIOLES 8 (10): Gary Matthews hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning to complete his first career two-homer game, and the Texas Rangers overcame a milestone shot by Sammy Sosa to beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-8 on Wednesday night.
Matthews connected in the 11th off Jorge Julio after Richard Hidalgo reached on a walk and Mark DeRosa singled.
Miguel Tejada and Javy Lopez also homered for the Orioles, whose seventh loss in eight games dropped them a season-high 41/2 games behind first-place Boston in the AL East.
