THE COURIER-JOURNAL' 'SPORTS MONDAY, JULY 6, 1998 Jenkins' slam gives Birds split against Indians By MATT ROBERTS Special to The Courier-Journal INDIANAPOLIS After losing the front end of yesterday's doubleheader to the Indianapolis Indians 4-3 and extending their losing streak to three games, things didn't look promising for Louisville. Despite notching only four hits in the nightcap, however, the Redbirds through a combination of walks, errors and timely long balls salvaged a split with a 9-5 triumph in front of 11,188 fans at Victory Field. Redbirds starter Frank Rodriguez appeared to labor at times in the nightcap, but he battled through some tough situations to collect the win. "That's not an easy lineup," he said. "I just tried to make the best pitches I could, and whatever happens, happens. My last start was against these guys, so I had to mix it up a little bit more. ... My curveball wasn't working, and I was just trying to throw my fastball in and out." Louisville scored in the first inning without a hit as Greg Martinez's walk turned into a run after an error, a sacrifice and a ground ball. The Redbirds scored the rest of their runs via the long ball. They pushed their lead to 4-0 on a three-run homer by Kevin Barker in the third inning. Barker hit the ball hard throughout the series, going 3 for 10 with 4 RBIs, the homer and a double. "I think it's the atmosphere," he said. "It's a lot of fun to play in front of fans that give you a hard time. Last night the place was packed, and that gets you kind of pumped up." The Indians scored three runs in their half of the third. Jon Nunnally hit a two-run triple then scored on a groundout. Scott Krause hit a solo homer in SCORECARD , , K..r... nn-, n m .mm. i INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE STANDINGS NORTHERN DIVISION W L Pet.

The Indians closed the gap on a solo homer by Pat Watkins in the bottom of the inning, but the Redbirds' final hit put the contest on ice. Louisville pinch-hitter Eric Owens was walked to lead off the seventh inning. Greg Martinez then reached on an error, and one out later Krause was walked to load the bases. Geoff Jenkins, who was sent down by the parent Milwaukee Brewers last week, followed with a grand slam to right to take the air out of Indianapolis. The first game, however, was a completely different story. Louisville did start out on the right foot, as was evidenced in the first inning when Owens reached on an infield hit and Jenkins followed with a walk. Krause, who was given the green light on a 3-0 pitch, then ripped a three-run homer to right field. "Maybe (manager Gary) Allenson had a feeling," Krause said. "Sometimes I get the green light, and sometimes I don't. I just got a good pitch to hit." Louisville starter Tim VanEgmond pitched his way to a 3-1 lead until the fifth inning, when he allowed the Indians to tie the score with two walks, two hits and a wild pitch. Johnny Ruffin relieved and struck out the only two hitters he faced, but the damage was done. Todd Williams gave up two hits in the seventh, but he got pinch-hitter Mike Kinkade to hit into a 6-3 double play to end the game and record his league-leadiung 18th save. The Redbirds will return home for one game tonight at 7:05 against the Indians before the Triple-A All-Star break. The projected starting pitchers are Indianapolis' Brian Keyser (3-3, 4.17 ERA) and Rod Henderson (4-3, 3.36). yj WNBA EASTERN CONFERENCE W L Pet GB Charlotte 8 2 .800 Detroit 6 4 .600 2 New York 7 6 .583 2 Cleveland S 4 .656 2 ft Washington 1 10 .091 714 WESTERN CONFERENCE W L Pet GB Houston 9 1 .900 Phoenix 7 3 .700 2 Utah 3 7 .300 6 Los Angeles ... 2 7 .222 6V4 Sacramento .... 2 7 .222 6)4 YESTERDAY'S RESULTS New York 62, Washington 81, OT Utah at Sacramento SATURDAY'S RESULTS Charlotte 68, Phoenix 66 TONIGHTS GAMES Houston at Cleveland, 7 p.m. Detroit at New York, 7:30 p.m. Sacramento at Utah, 9 p.m. Yesterday's summary At Washington NEW YORK (62) Lobo 7-18 OO 14, Johnson 3-16 1-2 7, Hampton 7-12 3-3 17, Witherspoon 8-12 2-4 14, Weatherspoon 2-6 00 4, Wicks 04 2-2 2, Ford 0-6 0-0 0, Cebrian 1-2 OO 2, Thompson 0-2 1-2 1, Branzova 0-1 1-2 1.

He was 81. In his 12 seasons with the Bears, Luckman became the team's career leader in touchdowns with 137, and yards gained with 14,686. Luckman once said he wanted three sentences on his tombstone: "He had it all. He did it all. He loved it all." Born in New York in 1916, Luckman attended Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn. He went to Columbia University, where he earned Knight's aim: Help Dad restore Continued from Page E 1 never was a potent scorer and lacked great athleticism. Some fans saw his recruitment as favoritism by his father, who admitted to Pat's athletic shortcomings but liked the knowledge he brought to the court. The younger Knight often was booed when he entered games and once expressed his desire to get away from Bloomington and his critics. "I'd lived here my whole life, and then I go to college here," he said. "You sort of want to see what else is out there. I did that. I've been away for three years, and I thought it was time to come back." Although this will be his first year coaching on the college level, Knight isn't a novice. Knight worked with the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association after leaving IU in 1995 and later was an aide to current IU assistant John Treloar in the Continental Basketball Association. Last year he was head coach of the Wisconsin Blast of the International Basketball Association. He recently was fired as coach of the Columbus Cagerz of the summer World Basketball League. The recent resignation of Craig 6-10 Oldham Co. product grows Continued from Page E 1 lege players can be drafted after their junior seasons. "I'll see what happens next year," he said. Rauch wasn't drafted out of high school and wasn't heavily recruited by colleges. "I wasn't that good," he said. "I wasn't throwing but 83-84. I was all over the place. I didn't have that much control. I was kind of wild." Larry McMillin, Rauch's coach at Oldham County, remembers a better pitcher than that. "He probably was the most fundamentally sound pitcher I have ever coached," said . McMillin, who coached the Colonels 27 years before retiring two years ago. "He had all the mechanics down pat. He threw well and threw hard. "The only thing between Jon and his being an exceptional high school pitcher was his temperament. Things got to him sometimes. You have to master yourself, but he was a good kid." McMillin wouldn't be surprised if Rauch made it in the pros. "He has the size, velocity and all the things the pro people are looking for," McMillin said. "They're likely to give him a chance." 1 Prutm Hwy. rssri f I Trw PALM TREE 1679 Old Preston Hwy. 957-2004 Silk Essence Spa Relaxing Massage 8234 Preston Hwy. 65 South to Outer Loopttast) ft To Preston Hwy.

Luckman made the cover of Life Magazine in his senior year, with the headline, "Best Passer, printed under his picture. Bears owner George Halas traded two players and a draft choice to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1939 to acquire the 5-foot-ll inch, 190-pound Luckman. Halas offered Luckman the highest salary ever paid by the team at the time, $5,000 a year. Luckman played his first game against the New York Giants in 1939, a 16-14 loss. "You'll never know the emotion, stress," Luckman once said of that game. "That had to be the most emotional time in my football history. My family, my friends from college, the Columbia coaches, the dean of the college . . . they were all at the game." Hartman, who said he wants to pursue business interests, opened the door for Knight to join his father's staff. But the appointment raised a lot of eyebrows. "There are going to be people complaining about me coming back here now, and that's fine," Pat said, "The only person I've got to satisfy is my dad. Everybody else can talk. You can't please everybody." Bob Knight was unavailable for comment. The media-friendly Pat apparently has some courtside similarities to his father, who late last year was fined $10,000 after an altercation with an official during a game against Illinois. "I think I led the league in technicals," the younger Knight said. "Now I understand why coaches get upset with the referees, but I had a good relationship with referees. I always told them: 'Don't pay a lot of attention to me. I'm just wrapped up in the game.' Even with guys who 'T'd' me up, I still had a good relationship with them off the court." Knight says he is much better prepared to coach than when he left IU because of his experiences as a head coach. Rauch's height certainly helps. "It gives you more leverage, a better down angle to the plate," he said. "It means you throw from a shorter distance." "He'll scare the heck out of you," Farris said. "It looks like he's on top of you." Farris has been working with Rauch to improve his change-up. "It wasn't too good when he got here," Farris said. "It'll just make his fastball look even better. He competes real good, and that's a good thing. That's hard to teach or coach." Rauch said the mental part of his game also has improved. "I had to learn to deal with adversity," he said. "If something bad happens, you have to play through it and stay mentally in the game for nine innings." He said he owes a lot to his American Legion coaches at Shelbyville, Jim Wiley and Roy Bailey. "They gave me a chance to improve," he said. "What I've become, I owe to them." Morehead gave him a chance, too. He was 3-3 as a freshman with a 5.11 ERA. He struck out 33 and walked 19 in 44 innings. As a sophomore, Morehead started 0-13 and finished 20-34, but Rauch was 6-5. He won his last three starts.

In 1940, Luckman led the team to a 73-0 victory over the Washington Redskins for the NFL championship. Luckman was named NFL MVP three times during his 12 seasons as a pro and was selected All-Pro seven times. When he stopped playing football in 1950, Luckman's salary was $23,000, matched only by Redskins quarterback Sammy Baugh. He then began a 14-year part-time coaching career for the Bears and other teams Halas wanted to teach about the T-formation. Luckman never accepted a coaching salary from the Bears. "I can never repay the Bears for making my life a more enchanting life," he said. Luckman is survived by a son. His wife, Estelle, died in 1981. Indiana's glory "I lost games on decisions I made and won games on decisions I made," he said. "It helped me deal with players and round out my basketball philosophies. I'd come up with an idea in the middle of the night, and the good thing about being a head coach is I could try it the next day." Pat dismisses his recent firing as something that just didn't work out. "We didn't see eye to eye although we left on good terms," he said. "But I was really close to my owner in Wisconsin."
