MATEUR BASEBALL 18Unct,r Midland Rtdsains 8, Cinciriruti Mwbals 0 16 Under CiocHirxrJ SUi 5, Likota SlMters 4 events Digest Dutrow blames jockey for loss Enquirer staff and wire reports Trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. still blames Kent Desor-meaux for Big Brown's stunning last-place finish in the Belmont Stakes, but he wouldn't object to the jockey riding the horse in his next race. The decision of whether to change jockeys is up to co-owner Michael Iavarone, Dutrow said. "I don't want to hurt anyone, especially Kent," Dutrow told the Associated Press Tuesday morning in his barn at Aqueduct. "But I still don't understand what happened. I don't see the horse with a problem, so I have to direct my attention toward the ride. That's all I can come up with." With Big Brown trying to become the first Triple Crown champion in 30 years after dominant wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preak-ness, Desormeaux eased up the unbeaten colt with a quarter-mile remaining in the Belmont on Saturday. "I had no horse. He was empty," Desormeaux said after the race. Colleges TRACK AND FIELD: Two Bearcats, senior pole vaulter Brittany Klima and sophomore high jumper Brandon Fitch, will make their first appearances in the NCAA Championships this week at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa. Fitch won the Big East high jump title this season, and Klima was the '07 league pole vault champ. A sprint showdown could determine whether Walter Dix-led Florida State can hold off LSU for a third consecutive NCAA men's track championship. The women's team race looks to be a three-way fight between defending champion Arizona State, Texas A&M and LSU. High schools ANDREWS' WIFE DIES: Jackie Andrews, wife of Lockland boys basketball coach Paul Andrews, died Monday night. Jackie Andrews, 60, had been suffering from bone marrow can cer. Paul Andrews recently announced a one-year leave of absence from coaching the Lockland team, with former Aiken coach Steve Gentry to replace Andrews on a one-year interim basis. Andrews will remain on leave until he decides his plans, Lockland athletic director Ken Meibers said. "It's really sad," said Meibers, a longtime friend of the Andrews family. "I know it had been a tough time for Paul and his wife." Tom Groeschen NHL MAPLE LEAFS: Ron Wil son was introduced as Toronto's new coach, less than a month after he was fired by the San Jose Sharks. Wilson, 53, signed a four-year deal. KINGS: Marc Crawford was fired as coach of the Los Angeles Kings after his team finished with the fewest points in the Western Con ference this season. He spent two seasons with the team and had a year left on his contract. Crawford coached the Kings to a 164- 59-84 record. Last season, . the Kings had 71 points, tied with Tampa Bay for the fewest in the league. RED WINGS: A person in the NHL tells the Associated Press that Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings have agreed to a 3-year contract for the Stanley Cup winning coach. Babcock, a former AHL Cincinnati Mighty Ducks coach, led Detroit to a title in his third season behind the bench after helping the fran chise get the most points in the regular season for the second time in three years. Babcock and the Red Wings had expected to reach an agreement shortly after the season ended last week with Detroit's win at Pittsburgh, where the team hoisted the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in 11 sea- s. College basketball UCLA: Guard Josh Shipp has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will return to the Bruins for his senior season.
