Team doctor Will Straw said Craig could be back in uniform as early as Monday night. "Knowing him, he'd probably try to get here tonight," said second baseman Robby Thompson. "But there's no need for him to rush back." Speculation exists that stress over Craig's first losing season as Giants manager may have contributed to his health problem. "I understand what he does is what he loves," said outfielder Kevin Bass, "but life is more important than this. Don't rush it. Baseball's going to be here." Craig, 61, checked into the hospital after experiencing discomfort while exercising on his treadmill Friday morning. The angioplasty, a procedure that can sometimes last two to three hours, took less than 30 minutes and was performed by Dr. Marc Gradman. Kruk, Phils agree PHILADELPHIA John Kruk became the first of the potential free agents to agree to a new contract, signing a $7.2 million, three-year deal Friday with the Philadelphia Phillies. Kruk, 30, was batting .282 with 16 home runs and 77 RBI. He was eligible to file for free agency following the World Series.

The Red Sox, playing without injured Wade Boggs (bruised ankle) and Ellis Burks (sore back), still won for the ninth time in 10 games. They began the day 3'2 games behind Toronto in the AL East. Plantier hit Boston's first pinch homer since Burks connected on July 14, 1990. Plantier's fifth homer of the season landed in the third deck in right field for a 5-3 lead, and Boston used five relievers to stay ahead. Mike Gardiner (8-7) pitched five-plus innings and won for the fifth time in six decisions.

"Just hit the ball," he said. "What else can you do?" Strawberry answered the jeers of a sellout crowd of 45,769 in Atlanta on Friday night with a home run and three singles as the Los Angeles Dodgers climbed over the Braves into a half-game lead in the NL West with a 5-2 victory. "The fans are a part of the game," Strawberry said. "They can be an inspiration to you. It's not a big thing. They boo me, I love it." Strawberry drove in two runs and also scored twice. With the score 2-2 in the seventh inning, Mike Shar-person started a two-run rally with a double off Atlanta ace Tom Glavine (18-10) and went to third on Strawberry's single. Eddie Murray then flied out at the fence in left field, scoring Sharperson with the tie-breaking run. The Dodgers added another run when Strawberry scored from first on a double by Kal Daniels, who was thrown out at third trying to stretch it into a triple. "Strawberry's the scariest guy in the league," Atlanta infielder Mark Lemke said. "He's hot. He really blew us away tonight." "Darryl was awesome, outstanding," Los Angeles manager Tom Lasorda said. "What a performance." It was the third victory in a row for the Dodgers, who snapped the Braves' seven-game winning streak, their longest of the year. It was the Dodgers' ninth victory in 13 meetings with the Braves this year.

Champion's son looks Sharp in Trans-Am Andretti wins provisional pole THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LEXINGTON, Ohio Michael Andretti attacked the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Friday and came away with the provisional pole for Sunday's Pioneer Electronics 200. Andretti, who trails CART Indy-car series leader Bobby Rahal 154-151, would earn another point today if he can hang on to his lead in qualifying on the 2'4-mile, 15-turn road circuit. Andretti, the defending race winner, set the current track qualifying record of 115.652 mph a year ago and was just shy of that on Friday with a lap of 115.230. Scott Pruett, in a Judd-powered Lola the only driver among the top 10 on the opening day of time trials not propelled around the circuit by a Chevrolet Indy V8 was a surprising second on his home circuit at 114.512. Robbie Buhl of Grosse Pointe, Mich., led the field in the first round of qualifying for the Fireston Indy Lights Championshipship race for single-seat race cars. , Buhl toured the 2.25-mile, 13-turn road course at an average speed of 100.417 mph. BY TERRY FLYNN The Cincinnati Enquirer Everything has come together for Scott Sharp this season, as he enters the Sports Car Club of American Trans-Am race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, with a comfortable lead in the series standings. Sharp, the 23-year-old son of six-time national SCCA champion Bob Sharp frdm Norwalk, Conn., said he was looking ahead eagerly to today's 42-lap Liquid Tide Trans-Am race over the 2.4-mile Mid-Ohio road course. "In the last couple of years, we always had some sort of problem keeping us down," Sharp said of "It's a tough track for a driver, but I love racing there," Sharp continued. "It's always a challenge, and when you're racing that's what it's all about." While Sharp attempts to extend his lead in the Trans-Am series, veteran Irv Hoerr is looking for his third victory of the season and thge opportunity to move up from third place. The 44-year-old Hoerr began racing near his Peoria, 111., home in 1975 and currently campaigns an Oldsmobile with teammate Darin Brassfield, the defending Mid-Ohio Trans-Am champion. "The Trans-Am is a very competitive series this year, and I think this race (Mid-Ohio) will be one of the closest," Hoerr said. "The great thing about Trans-Am racing is, you can get beat one week, go home and work hard, overcome your problems and win the next week." Today's race is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. The weekend at Mid-Ohio winds up Sunday with the 200-mile Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) race for Indy cars, featuring Al Unser Jr., Michael Andretti, Indy 500 champ Rick Mears, and Emerson Fittipaldi. The Indy car race is scheduled for 1 p.m., followed by a 25-lap Formula Atlantic championship race at 3:30 p.m.- his Chevrolet Camaro team. "Last year we had engine failures, and before that it was chassis problems. But Chevrolet has really put together a package for us this year and we're winning." Five victories in 12 events this season, to be exact. Although he agrees that the twisting Mid-Ohio course calls demands a premium on driver ability and car handling, Sharp called the track "probably the best permanent road course in the country. The track surface is good, and the entirely facility is so good." - 'I r ' -I mi , n M 11 I' - - ,- - . - - - w-,
