By GEORGE RORRER Staff Writer Mark Petkovsek started his ninth professional baseball season last night with one of the best games of his career. In his first game as a Louisville Redbird, the 29-year-old Petkovsek (pronounced Pet-KI-sek) shut out the defending American Association champion Indianapolis Indians 4-0 on two hits before a Cardinal Stadium crowd of 10,675. The numbers were about as good as a sinkerball pitcher could hope for. Seventy-eight pitches. Nineteen outs on ground balls. Seventeen putouts by first baseman Domingo Martinez. Four strikeouts. No walks. All wrapped up in two hours and one minute. "That's the lowest number of pitches I think I've seen," Louisville manager Joe Pettini said. "I saw Randy O'Neal throw 82 at Omaha, but not 78." Indianapolis' hits were a leadoff double by losing pitcher Scott Scud-der in the sixth inning and a roller to third by Keith Gordon with one out in the eighth. Louisville got home runs by Tracy Woodson in the second and Ray Giannelli in the sixth, plus a run-scoring double by Giannelli and a towering sacrifice fly by Martinez in the eighth. "That was an outstanding job by a guy who knows his strength and sticks with it," Pettini said. "Late in the game he went to his change-up effectively. For a sinkerball guy to be effective, you've got to make the plays behind him, and we did." Petkovsek acknowledged that support, especially by shortstop Joey Aversa. The rookie had nine assists, including a big one to retire Kurt Stillwell on a grounder up the middle, ending the inning with Scudder on third. "Any pitcher needs help," Petkovsek said. "You get games like this when you're down in the strike zone and the other team is aggressive. When you're up in the zone, you're not going to be around long." Petkovsek, a right-hander, was in the big leagues briefly with Texas in 1991 and Pittsburgh in 1993 after he pitched in '92 for a Buffalo team managed by current Indianapolis Redblrds 4, Indians 0 Indianapolis ab r h bl Louisville ab r It M Bnley cf 4 0 0 0 McNeely d 4 0 0 0 Kremblas 2b 4 0 0 0 Caraballo 2t 4 1 1 0 Stillwell ss 4 0 0 0 Gane rf 4 2 2 2 Brooks c 3 0 0 0 Martinez 1b 3 0 11 Brown 3b 3 0 0 0 Woodson 3b 3 1 1 1 Dismuke 1b 3 0 0 0 Deak c 3 0 2 0 Rorirmwer rf 3 0 10 Chdowsky II 3 0 10 Gordon If 3 0 10 Diggs If 10 10 Scudder p 2 0 10 Aversa ss 4 0 10 Vasquez p 0 0 0 0 Petkovsek p 4 0 10 Denson ph 10 0 0 Warren p 0 0 0 0 Totals 30 0 2 0 Totals 33 4 11 4 INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS 000 000 000-0 LOUISVILLE REDBIRDS 010 001 021-4 E-Wamnez, Woodson.DP-lndians 1, fledbirds 1.

We just got beat by a guy pitching a great game." Petkovsek has been in Triple-A or the big leagues for six seasons. Last year he pitched the first no-hitter in Tucson Toros history, beating Colorado Springs on May 16. But he's still looking for a job in the majors. Petkovsek said he signed in November with St. Louis as a free agent because the Cardinals' roster was top-heavy with left-handers. "That," he said, "and Louisville's a great place to play." Woodson's homer, his second extra-base hit in as many games, went high into the right-field bleachers. Giannelli's homer found the lowest corner just to the left of the right-field "Blue Monster" wall, and his double was a longer blast to left-center field. "I'm having trouble getting that wall out of my mind," Giannelli said. "I've got to remind myself to go the other way." Pettini said, "That's the style of ball we have to play right now. We've got to be businesslike and get some longballs." Marlins' hot pursuit of Pendleton pays off Associated Press The last time Terry Pendleton signed on as a free agent was four years ago, and he went on to become the National League's Most Valuable Player while winning a batting title with the Atlanta Braves. Yesterday the Florida Marlins signed the 34-year-old third baseman to a $1.5 million, one-year deal with an option year for 1996. Pendleton also was being wooed by the Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies but chose the Marlins because of their dogged pursuit. "My big concern when I was a free agent in 1990 was that Atlanta wanted me, and not just to fill a void," he said. "Florida showed an interest in me, wanted me, and they came after me." Pendleton doesn't expect to duplicate his 1991 MVP season, when he hit .311 with 21 homers and 105 RBIs. He's a three-time Gold Glove with more than 1,500 hits. "I bring leadership with me as well as my play in the field," said Pendleton, who has recovered from a back injury that limited him to 77 games in 1994, when he hit .252 with seven homers. Other slgnlngs: Texas lefthander Kenny Rogers agreed to a one-year contract worth $3.7 million, a raise of $1.4 million. In 1994 he was 11-8 while pacing the Rangers in complete games (six) and shutouts (two). He threw a perfect game July 28 against California. Mark Grace, who made $4.4 million with the Chicago Cubs in 1994, agreed to stay with the team. Details weren't available. "The Pittsburgh Pirates signed right-hander Jim Gott, 35, to a $900,000, one-year contract. He led the Pirates with a club-record 34 saves in 1988, then badly injured his right elbow on opening day in 1989 and never pitched for them again. He spent the past five seasons with Los Angeles and had 25 saves and a 2.32 ERA in 1993. But in 1994, despite going 5-3 as a set-up man, his ERA rose to 5.94. Atlanta second baseman Mark Lemke agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.25 million, a raise of $150,000 from 1994, when he hit a career-best .294 in 104 games. Seattle Mariners first baseman Tino Martinez agreed to a take-it-or-leave-it one-year contract believed to be worth $1 million. He made $500,000 last season, when he hit 20 home runs in 97 games. I MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL Cleveland signed free-agent left-hander Bud Black, who toiled for the Indians once before, to a minor league contract worth $350,000. Black, 37, got $3 million last year, when he was 4-2 with a 4.47 ERA with San Francisco in 10 appearances. He missed two months of the season while recovering from offseason elbow and knee surgeries. Former Cy Young Award winner Bob Welch, who made $2.9 million with Oakland last season, resigned for $225,000 and no performance bonuses. The Athletics also signed infielder Mike Bordick to a $1.35 million, one-year contract. Catcher Pat Borders, who made $2.5 million with Toronto in 1994, signed with Kansas City for $310,000. ""Free agent right-hander Kirk McCaskill decided to go back to the Chicago White Sox, agreeing to a two-year, $1.5 million deal. " Pitcher Joe Boever agreed to a two-year deal ($500,000 in 1995, : $650,000 in 1996) with Detroit, and : the Tigers signed Juan Samuel to a ; minor league contract for $325,000. ; No arbitration: St. Louis decid- ; ed not to offer a contract to Bernard Gilkey, the Cardinals' starting left ! fielder the past three seasons, mak- ; ing him a free agent. Yesterday was the last day for a '. club to offer salary arbitration to its ; former players who became free ; agents or lose the right to negotiate : until May 15. It also was the last day ; to offer contracts to salary arbitra- ; tion-eligible players. Gilkey, who hit .253 with six' '. homers and 45 RBIs last year, had 1 been eligible for salary arbitration. '. ; St. Louis also elected not to offer. contracts to arbitation-eligible pitchers Omar Olivares (3-4, 5.74 ERA) and Mike Perez (2-3, 12 saves,: 8.71 ERA). The team earlier de-; clined to offer a deal to Bob Tewks-bury, who led the team with 12 wins last year while making $3.5 million.
