"It's tough because the two outings were just brutal compared to what I know I can do," Bonser said.

Hunter regains speed

Wearing No. 42 with his socks pulled high to honor Jackie Robinson, Torii Hunter scored the tying run with a nifty headfirst slide in the seventh inning. He entered Sunday leading the majors with eight doubles and tied for the league lead with four stolen bases.

Hunter keeps saying he will steal 30 bases this year.

"All last year my ankle bothered me," he said. "I couldn't run balls out. Infield hits -- I couldn't get those. I couldn't do anything, but I kept playing, and now I feel good. It's kind of scary. I can run, so I'm going to go out there and use it."

Crain improves

Pitching coach Rick Anderson said Jesse Crain looked good in a 10-minute pregame bullpen session. Crain hasn't pitched since last Tuesday because of a sore right shoulder, but Anderson thinks he'll be ready by Tuesday.
