THE COURIER-JOURNAL, THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1991 D3 SPORTS BEAT EDITED BY USA FROST Middle's Stewart resigns to take CBA coaching job Middle Tennessee State University basketball coach Bruce Stewart said yesterday he's leaving to take the head coaching job with the Grand Rapids Hoops of the Continental Basketball Association. He replaces former NBA great Cazzie Russell. The Blue Raiders' basketball program received a letter of inquiry this spring from the NCAA concerning possible rules violations, but Stewart said it didn't figure in his decision. "There was no pressure," he said. "We've been planning for the future of the Blue Raider program right up until now." In his seven years as head coach, Stewart took Middle to three NCAA Tournaments and earned a pair of National Invitation Tournament bids. His teams compiled a 141-76 record. DOXING George Foreman, upset over being passed over by heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield for Mike Tyson, has filed a $100 million lawsuit in Harris County, Texas, against Holyfield, promoter Dan Duva and trainer Shelly Finkel, claiming a breach of contract. The lawsuit also asks that a judge issue an injunction to prevent Holyfield from fighting Tyson for the title. Holyfield and Tyson have set their bout for Nov. 8 in Las Vegas. The lawsuit contends Holyfield already had signed a contract to fight Foreman Nov. 8 when he agreed to fight Tyson. As part of the agreement with Holyfield, Foreman agreed to back off nearly completed negotiations for a fight with Tyson. TRACK AND FIELD Ben Johnson will not attempt to regain his 100-meter title at the world championships in Tokyo next month, concentrating instead on earning a spot on Canada's 400 relay team, said his manager, Kemeel Azan. The announcement follows a report from Zurich that the organizer of a Swiss track meet next month suggested Johnson run in a relay race to avoid the "humiliation" of having to compete in the "B" division of the 100. Johnson has struggled since returning last September from a two-year ban for failing a drug test in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Merlene Ottey won the women's 100 in 10.87 seconds in the ' Golden Gala Grand Prix meet in Rome, extending her string of consecutive victories in the event to 52. The Jamaican led all the way, with American Carlette Guidry second in 11.07. Britain's Colin Jackson won the men's 110-meter hurdles in 13.09, the fastest in the world this year. He beat American Greg Foster, second in a photo finish at 13.10. CYCLING The Tour de France reaches the mountains today for two long stages across the Pyrenees toward the Alps with three-time champion Greg LeMond in the lead. Two Spaniards are among the few riders given even a chance of overtaking LeMond Miguel Indurain, who is third overall and 2 minutes, 17 sec onds back, and '88 winner Pedro Delgado, who is 4:30 behind in eighth. PRO FOOTBALL National Football League players convicted of drunken driving face a fine and four- or six-game suspension under a new league policy instituted by commissioner Paul Tagliabue. Under the policy, a drunken driving convictiori doesn't mean an automatic suspension, and the player will be entitled to a hearing. The New York Giants reached agreements with running back Ottis Anderson and receiver Stacy Robinson. Anderson is believed to have signed another one-year deal worth slightly more , than his $450,000 base. Robinson's contract was also for one-year. WORLD UNIVERSITY GAMES American swimmers continued their success at the World University Games in Sheffield, England, as Barbara Bedford won the 100-meter backstroke 1:02.08, to break a Games record by .39 seconds. William Schwenk took the gold in the men's 200 backstroke. And the women's 400 freestyle relay team Grace Cornelius, Dyne Burrell, Julie Sommer and Melanie Morgan finished in 3:47.48 to beat Canada. In basketball, Lisa Leslie and Katy Steding had 17 points each to lead the U.S. women over Hungary 104-89 for their third straight victory. The U.S. men, led by Adonis Jordan with 26, whipped Finland 141-66. In women's gymnastics, a U.S. team beat a squad from the Soviet Union for the first time in any major competition, only to get Deaten ror me goia meaai Dy Norm Korea. In men's singles tennis, Vimal Patel of Owensboro, Ky., defeated Andrew Bade of New Zealand to advance to the fourth round. TENNIS Third-seeded Amy Frazier scored a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Nicole Hummel and paced the advance of favorites into the quarterfinals of the Pathmark Women's Tennis Classic in Mahwah, N.J. Top-seeded Monica Seles makes her tournament debut tonight in a second-round match against Andrea Leand. Jaime Yzaga, the No. 6 seed, beat Mark Knowles 7-5, 6-1 to advance in the Sovran Bank Classic in Washington, D.C. Seeded winners also included No. 10 Jimmy Arias, No. 11 Malavai Washington, No. 12 Petr Korda of Czechoslovakia and No. 13 Grant Connell of Canada. GOLF University of Arizona senior-to-be David Berganio Jr. of Syl-mar, Calif., shot a second-round, 5-under-par 67 Tuesday for a 139 total and a two-shot lead over David Woliner of Brick, N.J., in the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Columbus, Ind. Dodgers drop seventh in row Continued from Page D 1 homer off starter Mike Morgan. "I was just protecting the plate," he said. "You have to hack at anything close (with two strikes). It was a fastball tailing away." Dykstra had two more hits, making him 6 for 13 since his 70 days on the disabled list following his DUI car accident on May 6. Morgan was sent back to Los Angeles following his six-inning outing after complaining of dizziness, nausea and throat soreness. He was given medication for a possible inner-ear infection. Mets 6, Giants 5: Mackey Sasser's bases-loaded, none-out sacrifice fly in the ninth lifted New York past visiting San Francisco. Reliever Alejandro Pena (6-0), who survived a shaky ninth inning, was the winner. Dave Righetti (2-4), the fifth Giants pitcher, who yielded a pinch-hit homer to Kevin McReyn-olds in the eighth that tied the score 5-5, was the loser. Gregg Jefferies opened the ninth with a single and went to third on Hubie Brooks' double. Howard Johnson was walked intentionally, before Sasser, who had a sacrifice fly in the seventh, hit his fly ball to right. On Mike Felder's throw home, Jefferies failed to touch the plate originally, then scrambled back and tagged it for the winning run. "I looked at Bruce (Froemming, the plate umpire), and he didn't give any sign," Jefferies said. "I figured I missed the plate since (Terry) Kennedy had it blocked so well, so I went back the secpnd time." Padres 7, Expos 5: Catcher Ron Hassey's throwing error enabled three runs to score on the same play as guest San Diego rallied past Montreal. San Diego trailed 5-3 in the sixth when Benito Santiago hit an RBI single off Dennis Martinez (10-6). With the bases loaded, Tim Teufel followed with a grounder to third base that Wallach fielded and threw home for a forceout. Hassey's relay to first, however, sailed into the right-field corner, and Teufel came all the way around behind Jerald Clark and Santiago. Reliever Jose Melendez (5-3) pitched six shutout innings for the victory, allowing three hits and striking out six. Tigers sweep Rangers as Deer homers in 10th; Associated Press These are the games that make Rob Deer glad he's in Detroit. Deer's two-run, lOth-inning homer gave the Tigers a 64 victory over Texas yesterday at Tiger Stadium and a sweep of the three-game series with the Rangers. A year ago, playing for the Milwaukee Brewers, Deer might not have had the chance to win a game like this. He has just two hits in 23 at-bats since the All-Star break, and his average has fallen to .185. But at this rate, he might be the most valuable .185 hitter in the major leagues. His last two hits were homers. The one he hit Tuesday night, breaking an 0-for-18 spell, tied the game in the eighth and the Tigers won in the ninth. "With the Brewers, I always felt pressure to hit just to stay in the lineup," Deer said. "It's a whole different story playing for (Tigers manager) Sparky Anderson. Here, I get a chance to hit just to win ball-games. Wayne Rosenthal (1-1) started the 10th by walking Pete Incaviglia. AMERICAN LEAGUE Deer hit the next pitch into the left-field seats for his 19th homer. Jeffersonville, Ind., native Walt Terrell (6-9), making his second relief appearance since being sent to the bullpen, gave up two hits over the last three innings for the Tigers. Indians 2, Athletics 1i Glenal-len Hill's two-run homer in the fifth inning helped Rod Nichols earn his first victory since 1989 as visiting Cleveland edged Oakland. "Is there a monkey off my back? It feels like a whole zoo off my back," said Nichols (1-8), who broke a 13-game losing streak with a four-hitter. Nichols was 0-4 lifetime against Oakland and 0-16 versus the American League West . before finally breaking through with his first victory since Sept. 14, 1989. Trailing 1-0 in the fifth, the Indians took the lead against Bob Welch (8-6) when Mark Whiten led off with a single and scored on Hill's Lis, - : ' ' ". --r iii.i. ii-T - , .I ASSOCIATED PRESS The Reds' Hal Morris tagged the Cardinals' Gerald Perry after he was picked off first base during the second inning last night. Reds suffer ninth straight loss Continued from Page D l season for the former catcher converted into a third baseman this year, and it tied the score at 3-3. In the fifth, Gedman jerked Armstrong's first pitch on a line into the right-field lower deck about 10 feet inside the foul pole to make it 4-3. It was the third homer of the season for Gedman, who was hitting .116 coming into the game. Two outs later, Smith walked and Ray Lankford singled him to third. Then Perry lined a shot down the right field line for a double. Smith waltzed home. O'Neill's throw would have nailed Lankford, but catcher Glenn Sutko dropped the ball. It was 6-3 and Armstrong"t6-9) was finished, replaced by Tim Layana. It was a third straight loss for Armstrong, who has given up 14 earned runs in his last 14 innings. Down 6-3, Cincinnati got one back in the sixth on singles by Paul UNeill and Chris babo and Luis Quinones' sacrifice fly. Cris Carpenter then pitched two perfect innings in relief. But the league's top closer, Lee Smith, gave up three hits and a run in the ninth before striking out Bar ry Larkin to complete his 26th save in 29 opportunities. The Reds got three runs one earned off Byrn Smith in the first two innings. Bill Doran singled and Hal Morris walked to start the first, and both moved up on a passed ball. Eric Davis scored Doran with a sacrifice fly, and O'Neill's liner up the middle scored Morns. Redbirds fall to Zephyrs 10-9 Continued from Page D 1 reason why the Redbirds are 20 games under .500 and in last place in the Eastern Division. The game lasted 3:39, the longest nine-inning contest of the season for the Redbirds. After Denver left nine runners on base in the first three innings, it stranded just one more. Louisville left 15, including three each in the second, sixth and eighth innings. "I thought after we left so many on in the first three innings, there was no way we were going to win that game," Muser said. "But all of a sudden we score nine. What a crazy game." Fortugno's first save was not a thing of beauty. In two innings, he walked three, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. But he gave up no hits. "It was getting a little crazy and I wanted to close the door," he said. "I survived, basically." He survived when Canale stabbed a rocket off the bat of Joey Fernandez for the final out. Left-hander Mike Milchin (4-4) will pitch tonight's 7:15 game for the Redbirds. He'll be opposed by ex-Redbird and St. Louis lefty Greg Mathews (2-1). NOTES Outfielder Willy Ma-gallanes and catcher Orlando Thomas were added to the Red-birds' roster yesterday, Magallanes from the disabled list and Thomas from Class A Springfield, 111. Magal lanes suffered a compound fracture of his left ankle in spring training. Thomas had been a player-coach at Springfield, playing in nine games and getting two hits in 21 at- bats Catcher Ray Stephens and infield- er Bien Figueroa were put on the disabled list. Stephens has a pulled groin muscle and Figueroa a sprained knee. . . . Jesus Mendez's fifth-inning single extended his consecutive-game hit ting streak to 10. Lonme Machn s streak ended at eight with an 0-for-5 night Royer's two-hit night was his sev enth in the last nine games.

He had allowed a first-inning single to Alex Cole and fourth-inning single to Carlos Martinez, but no hits after the fifth. On Tuesday night, the Indians intentionally walked the bases loaded with nobody out, and it worked. When the going got rough again, that strategy cost them the game as the A's won 7-6. Mike Gallego's two-run triple off Doug Jones (1-7) in the 13th tied the score. After the bases were then intentionally loaded, Gallego scored the winning run when reliever Mike York walked Terry Steinbach. Gallego was walked intentionally when the A's had a chance to win the game in the 11th. But Steve Olin struck out Mark McGwire and Rickey Henderson and got Steinbach on a grounder. The five intentional walks issued by Cleveland tied an American League record last set in 1972 by the Minnesota Twins.
