ryj;i""Kr"' nf'y C8 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 1994 Tribe squeaks by Cubs 6-5 f By Don Bates STAR STAFF WRITER Monday night the Indianapolis Indians jumped to 5-0 fifth-inning lead and then hung on to beat the Iowa Cubs 6-4. ! Tuesday night the Indians took a different approach. They spotted the Cubs a 5-1 lead after five innings and then gradually overtook the visitors to post a 6-5 victory before 10,025 happy patrons on Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce night at Bush Stadium. "That was some kind of comeback," Tribe manager Marc Bombard said. "We don't know how the season will end. but, if we wind up on top, this win will be one of the biggest." Tuesday's win lifted the league-leading Tribe to a three-game advantage over the losing Nashville Sounds. Pinch-hitter Kurt Stillwell's bases-loaded sacrifice fly, which scored Kevin Maas in the eighth, gave the Tribe the lead. Rich Sauveur's ninth-inning relief heroics protected it. Sauveur served up three consecutive groundouts to third baseman Willie Greene in the final frame to earn his 12th save. Brian Warren, who pitched a scoreless eighth inning, was the winner. He improved his record to 5-1. "Those two guys did a helluva job," Bombard said of Warren and Sauveur. The Indians now are 75-51, their high point of the year in terms of games above .500. Tuesday's victory was their 30th comeback effort of the campaign. Casey Candaele, who went 3 for 5 and scored twice, and Barry Lyons, who had two hits and two RBI, spearheaded the Tribe attack which consisted of 14 hits. Greene. Maas and Jamie Dismuke had two hits each. The Cubs put the Tribe in a 5-1 hole with five runs in the fifth. The Cubs loaded the bases with no outs and right-hander Terry Bross replaced starter John Cour-trlght. Craig Worthington hit a sacrifice fly before Ozzie Timmons hit his 17th home run. One out later Rod Robertson hit his ninth round-tripper. The Tribe had taken a 1-0 lead in the third Inning when Greene drilled an RBI double to deep center. The Indians cut the deficit to 5-2 in the fifth. A one-out pinch-hit double by Adam Hyzdu, a hit by Candaele, and a walk to Greene loaded the bases with two outs. Lyons drove home Hyzdu with a line drive that third baseman Worthington was only able to knock down. In the sixth, a double by Maas and an infield hit by Dismuke resulted in another run. The Indians tied the game at 5 with a pair of runs in the seventh. Singles by Candaele, Greene and Lyons produced the first score. A fielder's choice grounder by Doug Jennings was responsible for the second. The Tribe gets today off. Thursday Louisville comes for the first of four games. Strike could delay expansion r ,, . , - Associated Press Even though groups in nine cities have submitted bids for new baseball teams, major league expansion may be held up by the sport's current economic situation, Red Sox owner John Harrington said Tuesday. ; Harrington, chairman of the Schedule Format Committee that is considering expansion, said many clubs are concerned that adding teams will end up costing them money. "There's this notion out there we may expand and get this $150 million expansion fee," he said. "It is not in baseball's best economic sense to expand, because you have to divide the pot up by a greater number of BASEBALL .NOTEBOOK clubs." Harrington said 27 groups representing nine cities, including three outside the United States, submitted bids for expansion teams by last Thursday's deadline. The applicants were Buffalo, N.Y.; Mexico City: Monterrey, Mexico; Nashville, Tenn; Northern Virginia: Orlando. Fla.: Phoenix: Tampa-St. Petersburg, Fla., and Vancouver, British Columbia. Converse sent down Jim Converse, a member of the Seattle Mariners' starting pitching rotation before major league players went on strike, was optioned to Class AAA Calgary. Converse, who turns 23 today, was 0-5 with an 8.69 ERA in 13 games, including eight starts, and 48 innings for the Mariners. With Calgary this season, he is 4-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 11 starts and 56 innings. Young has surgery The Chicago Cubs expect pitcher Anthony Young to miss all of the 1995 season after undergoing surgery on his right elbow. Young underwent surgery Monday at Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital that was similar to the elbow procedure used for the first time 20 years ago on Tommy John. A tendon graft was taken from Young's right forearm and weaved into his right elbow to reinforce the remaining ligament that was there and to create a new ligament for stability. The procedure was used for the first time in 1974 on John after his arm was injured. He went on to pitch 14 more seasons with the rebuilt arm.

Heading into his third week as president of the American League, Gene Budig had to wonder. With no games to attend, he's determined to focus on baseball's future instead of its acrimonious, strike-crippled present. "I'm spending time on the expansion issue," Budig said Monday from his office in New York. "I'm reviewing tons of data. More and more communities realize the value of major league baseball and see a major-league franchise as an enormous asset." 'i ' - A lifelong baseball fan. the former chancellor at the University of Kansas isn't directly involved in negotia tions between owners and players, who struck Aug. 12. He knew when he accepted the job that labor unrest threatened to disrupt or even prematurely end the 1994 season. So until things get back to normal, the new AL president is making the best use of some unwelcome spare time. "What I'm doing is educating myself." he said. "I've been meeting with owners and club officials. They're taking me to school on many of the issues which impact them and their organizations. "1 have learned much in a short period of time. There are fundamen-, tal economic issues that must be addressed. They are not going away, and they cannot be ignored if major league baseball is to thrive in the long run."
