Right wing Todd Ewen's attempt to extend his career lasted one practice. The Phoenix Coyotes said that Ewen, who was attempting to make the club under a pro tryout agreement, reinjured his left knee and decided to retire. He last played in 1997 for the Sharks. . . . Scranton Wilkes-Barre rocked five Charlotte pitchers for four home runs and 16 hits in a 15-5 victory in the first game of the teams' best-of-five playoff series. The Red Barons' Pat Burrell was 4-for-5 with two homers and two RBIs. Dave Hollins homered for Charlotte. . . . Durham scored six runs in the third inning and Ramon Tatis allowed only one earned run as the Bulls beat Columbus, 7-4, in the opening game of an International League division series. . . . Substitute Chris Albright scored in the 80th minute to give a 10-man United States side a 2-2 draw with Jamaica in an international soccer exhibition. The match marked the 41st straight game Jamaica has played at home without a loss dating to November 1994 when it fell, 3-0, to the U.S. The U.S. brought what was essentially its third team with all but one member of the 19-man roster playing club ball in Major League Soccer, and was reduced to 10 men in the 79th minute when Ante Razov was sent off for dissent.
