PITCH BREAKS WRIST OF PHILS' HAYES

Outfielder Von Hayes of the Philadelphia Phillies broke his right wrist Friday night when hit by a pitch from Cincinnati's Tom Browning and is out for the rest of the season.

Hayes, who in the last week has been rumored going to Cincinnati for infielder Mariano Duncan, was batting in the sixth inning when a Browning pitch broke the ulna bone in the wrist.Hayes went to first base after he was hit but was removed and sent to a hospital when the Phillies took the field for the seventh. General manager Lee Thomas disclosed that the outfielder was done for the season.

Hayes only recently emerged from a season-long slump, hitting .395 in his last 12 games which upped his average to .227. He has five home runs and 21 RBI. He becomes a 10-year player July 25, and since he has played five years with the same team earns the right to veto any trades.
