San Diego Stadium Tries Something New

Associated Press

The San Diego Padres finalized plans on Saturday for an auxiliary scoreboard that will hang on the right-field wall at Jack Murphy Stadium, making the outfield asymmetrical for the first time in the team's 28-year history and giving the multipurpose stadium a touch of the quirkiness found in more traditional ballparks. . . . Kenny Rogers was roughed up for the second time in two starts as the Cincinnati Reds, behind five shutout innings from Pete Schourek, defeated the New York Yankees, 6-1. Rogers, signed by the Yankees to a $20-million, four-year deal after seven years with Texas, gave up three runs and six hits in three innings. "I'm glad we've got spring training," he said.
