DETROIT FREE PRESSWEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 1990 5D Marshall rates 10 as starter The top 10 reasons the Fayetteville Generals are leading the South Atlantic League's Northern Division? How about left-hander Randy Marshall, who has won his first 10 starts this season for the Tigers' Class A affiliate. "I'm surprised by the start," Marshall said. "But then I'm not surprised because of the way I approach each game. I go out to win every time." Marshall has five complete games and three shutouts with a 1.38 ERA. He has 53 strikeouts and eight walks. Marshall, of Farm report ", Ypsilanti, was drafted by the Tigers in 1988. He made his pro debut in 1989 at Fayetteville, pitching mostly in relief. This season, Marshall has shown the stamina to be a starter, with 71 innings in 10 games. "If I get past the first three innings, I just keep getting stronger," he said. "If I get in a groove, then the innings don't matter." Marshall is well-traveled for a 23-year-old. After starring at Ypsilanti Calvary Christian High, he played at Spring Arbor his freshman season. He transferred to Michigan, then to Eastern Michigan, but lost his remaining college eligibility in the shuffle. Marshall, whose next start is Friday or Saturday, claims not to be worried about the streak: "If I lose, then I lose. The only way I would be mad is if I didn't pitch well." That's not to say Marshall hasn't enjoyed the streak. "I haven't had a lot of notoriety," he said. "My family always knew I had the stuff, but there always was some problem. Now I'm here and loving it." MINOR QUIZ: Which of the following Tigers' first-round draft picks was the highest Glenn Wilson, Kirk Gibson, Jerry Manuel, Pat Underwood or Lance Parrish? Answer below. IN MODERATION: Labatt's may mean beer in Canada, but the government has forbidden sale of suds at Labatt's Field, home of the London Tigers. Beer sales in Canada are restricted to outdoor sports facilities. But when the Tigers' Double-A affiliate sought to be included, they were told the law applied to major-league sports. The government relented and will allow the sale of light beer through the seventh inning, starting with the June 25 Eastern League all-star game. BACK IN ACTION: Former Tigers farmhand Chris Hoiles remained a headache for Triple-A Alliance pitchers in his first start since suffering a 16-stitch cut from a beanball. Hoiles went 4-for-4 with a home run in Rochester's 7-3 victory over Pawtucket Monday, raising his International League-leading batting average to .406. Hit by a rising fastball at Indianapolis on May 19, Hoiles lay motionless at home plate for five minutes before being carried off on a stretcher. Hoiles has a 14-game hitting streak and is batting .481 for May. He is 13-for-18 (.722) in his last five games. A former Eastern Michigan star drafted by the Tigers in 1986, Hoiles was one of the three players sent to Baltimore for Fred Lynn in 1988. ANSWER: Underwood was No. 2 overall in 1976. He made his major league debut in 1979 against his brother Tom, who was with Toronto. Gibson was the 12th player taken in 1978, Parrish was 16th in '74, Wilson was 18th in '80, and Manuel was 20th in '72. Cahadian JOE CYBULSKI Never before offered.

The night before, the Phillies won their fourth straight and moved into the National League East lead by a half-game, their first time in first since in 1984. The Phils followed that four-game winning streak with three straight defeats, losing the top spot to Pittsburgh. But that's not important right now, because the ' Phillies won't win a pennant this season anyway. What is impor tant is that the Phils aren't the sad-sack bunch penciled in for 90 losses before the season. The Phillies play like they care whether the game is won or lost. That's not the way it used to be. The Phillies lost 191 games the last two seasons and acted as though it was their destiny, so why fight it? What's the difference this season? Manager Nick Leyva says it's a blue-collar work ethic No collar is bluer than that of Len Dykstra, the centerfielder-leadoff hitter acquired from the New York Mets. Mets outfielder Darryl Strawberry used Dykstra as an example when he said the Mets have traded away all their players who fought hard because they didn't like to lose. Dykstra isn't an overly gifted athlete, but plays with infectious enthusiasm. How can his teammates take a casual approach when they see him diving and sliding all over the place? Dykstra, who hit .222 after going to Philadelphia last year, has been over or near .400 most of the season. But like the Phillies' brief stay in first, Dyk- GAME 48 Royals 5, Tigers 3 Gene Cuidi NL y DETROIT KANSAS CITY abrhbi abrhbi Whiloker 2b 5 0 10 Seltzer 3b 5 0 10 Phillips n 4 2 10 Sllllwell ss 3 110 Mojeby d 4 0 10 Perrv dh 4 0 0 0 Fielder lb 3 111 Tarlabull rt 3 0 10 Sheets ri 3 0 2 0 Wilson H 0 100 Jones If 0 0 0 0 Brell lb 4 12 1 Nones dh 2 0 0 0 Jackson cf 3 2 10 Williams ph 0 0 0 0 Eisenrelch K 4 0 2 2 Bergman ph 1 0 0 0 Maclarlane c 4 0 11 Ward If 4 0 2 2 White 2b 4 0 2 0 Healh c 4 0 10 Romero 3b 2 0 0 0 Solas ph 10 0 0 Totals 33 ) 9 3 Totals 34 511 4 000 100 020-3 Kamai City 010 000 04X-S E: Word.

HNAl SCORE: Royals 5, Tigers J. LAinisilPIP stra's pursuit of .400 won't last long. But the Phillies have made their point. They might lose more games than they win, but they don't have to like it. Sports Semantics: when Davey Johnson was managing the Mets to 90 victories a season, winning division titles and a World Series, he was lauded for creating a relaxed atmosphere by treating his players like adults. But after winning 87 games last year and a slow start this spring, Johnson was fired Tuesday because, management said, he lacked discipline. For the real reason the Mets aren't winning like they used to, look no further than trades that sent away gamers such as Dykstra and Mookie Wilson and brought in Juan Samuel and Mike Marshall, players who will never make the all-fortitude team. IN GOOD HANDS WITH AVERY: Most teams are starving for pitching, but Atlanta is offering to trade a starter for a right-handed hitter. How can the Braves afford to part with a valuable commodity? Left-hander Steve Avery. Avery, 20, the former Taylor Kennedy star, is pitching for the Braves' Triple-A farm club in Richmond, Va. But he probably will make the jump to the majors in a week or two. Some people in the Braves' organization including manager Russ Nixon wanted Avery to start the season with Atlanta. But general manager Bobby Cox thought Avery, the No. 3 overall pick in the June 1988 draft, needed a little more time to develop. In 10 starts for Richmond, Avery is 5-3 with a 3.43 ERA. HOWE NOW? Art Howe did a marvelous job with Houston in his first year as manager last season. The Astros weren't expected to do much, especially after they got off to a 14-19 start. Howe remained calm and rallied his troops to an 86-76 record. Royals' four-run eighth pushes Tigers' skid to 4 TIGERS, from Page ID helping make it the worst year of his career. Trammell missed his second straight start, but he hoped to play in the series finale tonight. Tanana left after Kurt Stillwell's leadoff double and a groundout. The next five batters reached base against Henneman and Paul Gibson, a span in which all four runs scored. Henneman was seeking his 12th save in 13 opportunities. He was wild and didn't appear to be throwing as hard as normal. He walked his first batter, Danny Tartabull. George Brett singled to right, making it 3-2 and sending pinch runner Willie Wilson to third. Henneman's 1-0 pitch to Bo Jackson was wild, allowing Wilson to score the tying run without a play. Henneman left after walking Jackson, leaving runners at first and second with one out. Gibson, outstanding this season at escaping inherited jams, needed a double play and almost got it when left-handed Jim Eisenreich hit a hard'grounder up the middle. But the ball scooted past Gibson into center-field for the go-ahead single. Mike Macfarlane followed with a hit to deep shortstop, scoring Jackson from third and making it 5-3. Tanana's record remained 4-4 this season; he's 0-12 in 18 lifetime starts in Kansas City. Ward broke a 1-1 tie with a two-out, two-run single with the bases loaded in the eighth. He drove an 0-2 fastball from reliever Steve Farr the other Mazda Senior IPC June 4-10 Rodriguez The Motor City is revving up for the world's greatest Senior TOUR players.

Houston is 18-27 and 14 games behind West-leading Cincinnati. Howe said he expects the Astros to turn things around again: "If we go out and play every game like I know we can, we'll have more wins than losses." That's not likely. Last year, Houston led the majors with 35 one-run wins. Teams that win most of the close games usually fall on hard times the next year. ZlMMER SIMMERS: After a 10-minute tirade when the umpires reversed a call and took a home run away from Ryne Sandberg on Sunday, Cubs man: ager Don Zimrner said he apologized only for the profanity he spewed. "You know you're right, and they make you go out and argue so you look like a dummy," Zimrner said. "I don't think a first base or a third base ump should ever be overruled on a home run call." First base ump Harry Wendel-stedt, the crew chief, and second base ump Joe West called Sandberg's drive into the seats foul. Third base ump Bill Hohn had signaled a home run. "Wendelstedt and West have the worst views in the park," Zimrner said. "Without a doubt, it's the most upset I've been in 42 years in baseball." way. Tanana took the 3-1 lead out for the bottom of the eighth. , , "Mike has done a great job for us this year," said Tanana, nodding toward Henneman, who was staring into his locker. "It was one of those nights where he didn't have it. "Every team I've played on has had trouble in this park. It's just one of those unusual circumstances that are part of a career." Tanana has pitched much of his career for teams that struggled to score, and the Tigers certainly have been one of those in recent days. It looked like the eighth inning would only be the latest example. Starter Mark Gubicza and reliever Mark Davis combined to walk the bases loaded with one out. Dave Bergman pinch-hit against right-hander Farr and struck out. It marked the fifth time in this two-game series a Tiger had failed to drive in a runner from third with less than two out. Then Ward fell behind, 0-2, before lining his hit to right, past diving first baseman Brett and into right. But afterward, manager Sparky Anderson sounded the same as he did after Monday's 3-2 loss: "You can't leave that many men on base with less than two out. You can't do that and win games." For the second straight night, the Tigers missed chances in two of the first five innings to drive in a runner from third with less than two out. Each night, Lou Whitaker was the batter who missed one of the opportunities. at" - S V .i-y J A. f MAZDA I v SENIOR,, w
