PHOENIX (AP) - The Diamondbacks are off to the worst start in franchise history. With Wednesday night's 5-2 loss to the New York Mets, Arizona is 4-14, the worst record in baseball and surpassing the start by the 1998 team that nearly lost 100 games. The Diamondbacks head to Los Angeles this weekend to play the Dodgers, hoping to turn around what has so far been a disastrous season.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Kevin Kouzmanoff delivered again, doubling twice and scoring two runs as the Texas Rangers beat Seattle Mariners 8-6 yesterday. Texas lost the opener of the four-game series on Monday night, but won the last three. Robinson Cano homered for the Mariners. He's in a 3-for-18 slump.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Franklin Morales allowed four hits in six innings and Wilin Rosario hit a tiebreaking groundout in a three-run seventh, lifting the Colorado Rockies over the San Diego Padres 3-1 yesterday. Morales (1-1) allowed a solo homer to Xavier Nady leading off the fourth, a drive off the facing of the second deck in left field, and Ian Kennedy (1-2) took a one-hit shutout into the seventh.

PHOENIX (AP) - Despite 48 wins, the Suns are staying home when the real fun begins. It's a frustrating situation because of the decidedly Western power tilt in the NBA. If Phoenix was in the Eastern Conference, it would be tied for the third-best record with Toronto and Chicago. The Suns won 10 more games than the East's No. 8 seed, Atlanta.
