Wally Joyner Hits 200th Career Homer, Other Mormon Athletes Have Off Week

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Atlanta Braves' Wally Joyner hit his 199th and 200th career home runs and hit .381 in taking advantage of an injury that put him on first base full-time for the Braves. Joyner is a 15-year veteran player who was traded to the Braves from the San Diego Padres at the end of last year.

Other Mormon athletes had a bit of an off week. Giants second baseman Jeff Kent, who pushed his team mates around the bases before the all-star break for a league-leading 89 RBIs, was still struggling at the plate, hitting just .190 and managing only one RBI for the week. Cardinals pitcher Garret Stephenson didn't fare much better, splitting the two games he pitched last week with an ERA of 5.25 for the week. However, his one win last week came against the Arizona Diamondbacks and their overpowering pitcher, Randy Johnson.

Meanwhile, Mormon News discovered a couple of new MLB pitchers to add to the list. Omar Olivares, a starting pitcher for the Oakland As is currently on the disabled list, and Relief Pitcher Mike Fetters of the Los Angeles Dodgers had a somewhat off week, racking up a 6.00 ERA, but managing to get a save in one of the three games he pitched in relief.

In golf, PGA tour members Keith Clearwater and Dan Forsman both failed to make the cut for the John Deere Classic, leaving both out of the money. Others on the list, including Richard Zobel, who Mormon News learned about this week, were idle. Meanwhile, Senior PGA tour member Bruce Summerhays managed to land in the money, barely, earning just $2,700 for his performance in the Lightpath Long Island Classic.
