THE SALINA JOURNAL T COLLEGE WORLD SERIES LSU turns back USC; Gators fall Jwo-time defending ichampion Tigers belt record eight homers By The Associated Press • iOMAHA, Neb. — On a warm Sat- .urday, the wind and the baseballs ,W ; ere blowing out of Rosenblatt Stadium. Brad Cresse hit two of LSU's record eight home runs and the Tigers began their quest for a third straight College World Series title with a 12-10 victory over Southern Cal. "We had a lot of monster shots today," said Eddy Furniss, one of seven Tigers to homer. "I've been in some games where we hit six home runs but some were jam shots. Today, we got them all on the barrel every time." Added Tigers coach Skip Bertman: "That's what we do. We'd like to walk a little more and get singles, but it doesn't always work that way." ..Cresse's second homer tied it at 10-10, a towering seventh-inning shot that passed high above the left field bleachers. Although the fifth-seeded Tigers (47-17) rallied with power, they went ahead for good with an infield hit and a bloop single. With two outs in the top of the eighth, Josh Dalton beat out an infield dribbler on a play on which USC reliever Jason Lane (8-2) was charged with a throwing error. Cedrick Harris, who had reached ona fielder's choice, moved to third on the play. Moments later, Trey McClure's soft shot over the head of second baseman Wes Rachels scored both runners. Doug Thompson (12-4), the third of three LSU pitchers, pitched the last three innings. After allowing USC's Morgan Ensberg to reach third in the bottom of the ninth, Thompson struck out two batters to end the game. Mississippi State 14, Florida 13 OMAHA, Neb. — Van Johnson, who came within inches of being the goat, pitched out of a ninth-inning jam to give Mississippi State a victory of top-seeded Florida in the final opening-round game. -Florida (46-17) had cut a six-run deficit to 14-10 when Brad Wilkerson, named earlier in the day as the college player of the year, had what would have been a game-tying grand slam go just foul. Although Wilkerson walked to force in a run, Johnson managed to keep the Gators from collecting a big hit. Casey Smith's sacrifice fly made it 14-12 but cost Florida a vital out. After Greg Catalanotte bounced a single to right to make it 14-13, Johnson got Derek Nicholson on a grounder to first to give the Bulldogs (42-21) only their second CWS victory in 18 games since 1991 over their Southeastern Conference rival. Barry Patton had a leadoff home run and Richard Lee added a two- out single as Mississippi State scored what turned out to be vital runs in the ninth. SUNDAY, MAY 31, 1998 07 V FRENCH OPEN TENNIS Williams: 'La Terreiir* of French Open Intimidating 16-year-old powers her way into fourth round with 6-1, 6-1 victory By ROB GLOSTER Tlie Associated Press PARIS — Serena Williams has become "La Terreur" of the French Open. When she's not making opponents flinch at 104 mph serves or slamming backhand winners, the 16-year-old Williams intimidates them by hovering menacingly close while returning serve. Williams won 10 straight games Saturday while overpowering 15th-seeded Dominique Van Roost 6-1, 6-1 on center court. While Williams was one of five American women to reach the fourth round, the last survivor among the U.S. men — llth-seeded Michael Chang — was defeated by unseeded Spaniard Francisco Clavet. Chang, the only American man to reach the third round, had a trainer massage his thighs in the third set of his 3-6,7-6 (7-5), 6-2, 6-4 loss, a match that lasted nearly three hours. Chang, the 1989 French Open champion, sat with a towel over his head at the end of The Associated Press Serena Williams returns a shot during her victory over Dominique Van Roost. the center-court match. "I think that I was hurting a little physically out there. Maybe I didn't prepare as well as I should have," he said. "Obviously, in the French Open, you have to be very physically fit." American men already had been doomed to their worst Grand Slam showing in at least 30 years when Chang was the only one of 12 original participants to make it past the second round. In Williams' victory, Van Roost won just four points in her first five service games and the American, standing five feet inside the baseline to return second serves, menaced her Belgian opponent into six double faults. One usher on center court warned a writer watching the match: "This is not for your eyes. This is carnage." Williams joined her older sister, Venus, among the final 16 in her French Open debut — just her second tournament on clay. In her first clay-court event, she lost to Venus in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open earlier this month. "A lot of people say you have to rally on the clay," Serena said, "but I think it's really exaggerated what they say. I don't feel my game has to change at all on the clay." Joining, the Williams sisters in the fourth round was another American, second-seeded Lindsay Davenport, who beat Russia's Elena Likhovtseva 7-5, 7-5. Also advancing Saturday were No. 4 Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, a two-time champion who faces Serena Williams in the next round, No. 7 Conchita Martinez, defending champion and lOth-seeded Iva Majoli and No. 14 Sandrine Testurt.

Rusty Wallace, on the pole for the running today of the $1.7 million MBNA Platinum 400, knows that better than most. Three career victories on the treacherous track prove he has discovered the fast way around. But Wallace says races at Dover often are decided off the track. As T PRO GOLF the pole sitter, he chose the stall closest to the exit of pit road. "I think we'll have a real good pit deal all day long," Wallace said. "Being WALLACE down there at the end, all you've got to do is pop it, turn the tires and you're over the line." The first car to hit the yellow line — no more than a few yards from the nose of Wallace's Ford — at the end of the 1,076-foot pit road will be the leader for all restarts. There have been as many as 16 in a race on a layout known as the Monster Mile. "So, I think staring up front is a definite advantage," said Wallace, who clocked a record lap of 155.898 mph in qualifying Friday. "It's like that at any place where track position is real important." But this isn't all about caution flags and pit stops. The leader can dictate so much of the flow of the race and save his equipment for the crucial final laps. "It's easier on the car, it's easier on the team," said Wallace, who with Jeff Gordon and David Pearson once won three straight Dover races. "It's easier on the tires because you don't use them up coming from the back to the front. It's just a better deal." It can be a winning deal if the pit crew does its job, no small detail in a sport where the goal is to change four tires and put 22 gallons of gasoline in the car in 18 seconds. Wallace's crew is among the best in NASCAR, and he credits them with helping him finish second to Gordon last Sunday night in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. But a pit crew can't do much for a driver unable to say at or near the front, especially at Dover, where passing is risky and certainly not equipment friendly. Wallace, seeking his first victory this season and the 48th of his career, thinks he has that covered. "This car is very derivable and real fast," he said. It will need to be just that to hold off Gordon and Mark Martin. They also have fast cars, fast crews and records of success attacking the White Lightning surface. "I drive every race at Dover as hard as I can, given what the tires can withstand," said Martin, who despite 10 previous top-five finishes had not won a Winston Clip event on the high-banked oval prior to last September. "There were so many races I felt we were good enough to win, but the win eluded us for so many years." It's still eluding Jarred, winless in 22 previous forays at Dover. But he has had a formidable car the last few years, and is starting in the top 10 here for the fifth straight time. He'll go from the fourth spbt on the grid, astride fellow Ford driver Martin and behind the Chevrolet of reigning series champion arid current points leader Gordon. Like most, Jarred says Goodyear's new tire compound is responsible for faster speeds this weekend. "It's got a lot of grip to it,"-he said. , Couples takes control at the Memorial Tournament By The Associated Press DUBLIN, Ohio — The names on the leaderboard of the Memorial Tournament looked like a jumble of the best players on tour before Fred Couples put aside a migraine headache and unscrambled the listing with a late surge to take control Saturday at Muirfield Village. Closing with a curling 12-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole, a 25- footer for birdie on the next hole and a 10-foot par-saving putt on No. 18, Couples shot a'67 to be at COUPLES 14-under-par 202, three strokes ahead of Davis Love III going into Sunday's final round. It's the third time Couples has gone into the last round with the lead this year. He let both the Masters and the Byron Nelson get away when he hit shots into the water on the back nine. In his only victory this year, the Bob Hope Classic, Couples trailed by three strokes going into the final round. If those squandered opportunities bothered Couples, he did not show it on Saturday at Muirfield. Moving in his usual easy style, Couples cruised through the first eight holes even par then closed with a rush, playing the last 10 holes 5-under par despite his first migraine in years. "I don't know what I had other than a migraine," Couples said. "I felt bad on the range and worse on the first tee. It never let up until I got out of the sun." Couples pulled himself together for a fast finish that created some breathing room over one of the best leaderboards of the year. Ernie Els shot a 67 and was at 206, four strokes back along with Ted Tryba and Andrew Magee. David Duval also had a 67 and was alone at 207. Tiger Woods was one of the players back in the pack who was unable to make a move. Hampered by a tricky design with narrow landing areas and devilish doglegs, Woods was able to hit his driver only three times and shot a 71 to be at 215,13 strokes back. LPGA ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rosie Jones, an eight-time winner in 16 years on the LPGA tour, bolted four shots clear of a stalled field with an 8-under-par 64 Saturday in the LPGA Rochester International. Capping a sizzling display on the greens — and a course-record 29 on the first nine — Jones finished the round with an 8-foot birdie putt. She punched her fist skyward as the gallery roared. "I could have shot nothing — that's how you feel sometimes," said Jones, who moved to 9-under 207. "You have days like today that are just easy." ;;" . Sherri Steinhauer shot a 6:under 66 and was at 5-under 211. She was one ahead of Dale Eggeling, Jenny Lidback, Hollis Stacy and second-round co-leader Moira Dunn, who shot 73. Seniors SEWICKLEY, Pa. — Larry Nelson tied the course record for the second straight day Saturday, shooting another 7-under-par 65 to take an eight-stroke lead with one round left in the Pittsburgh Senior Classic. ± Nelson's 14-under 130 totalhad him well in front of Jay Sigel and John Bland.
