www.tennessean.oom THE TENNESSEAN Thursday, June 29, 2000 5C SPOR tS: BASEBALL ulholiaiid conhnu T FT TT 1 M amice o: donnn t tepos Associated Press MONTREAL - Terry Mulholland kept up his mastery of the Montreal Expos and Brian Jordan hit a pair of RBI singles to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 74 victory last night. The NL East-leading Braves, just 12-14 in June, split their two-game series with Montreal and headed to New York for their highly anticipated four-game series with the Mets. Mulholland (8-6) improved to 17-4 lifetime against the Expos. He pitched 8 1-3 innings and allowed 11 hits, leaving after Fernando Seguignol's RBI single made it 7-4. Kerry Ligtenberg got two outs for his tilth save. Vladimir Guerrero hit his 22nd home run in the Expos eighth. He also doubled and singled. Jordan hit a run-scoring single off Dustin Hermanson (6-5) to cap the Braves' three-run third and hit another RBI single in the fifth to give Atlanta a 5-1 lead. Chipper Jones went 3-for-4, including two doubles, with a walk. Andruw Jones doubled and hit his 21st homer off reliever Felipe Lira to lead off the seventh. Atlanta reliever Mike Remlinger and rookie shortstop Rafael Furcal will rejoin the Braves today in New York. An MRI performed on Remlinger's left elbow Tuesday revealed no damage after he fell while trying to make a play at first base last Thursday. Eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list yesterday, Furcal was sched- K uled to make one final rehab start with Double-A Greenville before joining the team in New York. Mets 6, Marlins S NEW YORK New York won its seventh straight game, as Mark Johnson's two-run single capped a five-run sixth inning in the Mets' win over Florida. New York remained two games behind Atlanta in the NL East, with a four-game showdown with the Braves beginning today at Shea Stadium. Mike Piazza set a Mets' record by driving in a run in his 11th straight game. Piazza's RBI groundout in the third scored Melvin Mora, breaking the record he set last August Reds 7, Cardinals 3 CINCINNATI Benito Santiago's first homer in nearly a month put Cincinnati ahead and Sean Casey doubled with the bases loaded as the struggling Reds rallied for a victory over St. Louis. Cincinnati won for only the sixth time in 21 games and moved to 712 behind St Louis in the NL Central. The Reds have won two of three in a series that wraps up today. Dennys Reyes (2-1) struck out four of the five batters he faced to get the win, and Scott Sullivan pitched the last two innings to close it out. Flashbulbs went off every time Ken Griffey Jr. and Mark McGwire came to bat, but neither got a hit. Cubs 5, Pirates 4 PITTSBURGH The Chicago Cubs put aside the Sammy Sosa trade rumors for one night, rallying from a three-run deficit behind Jon Lieber's pitching and Jose Nieves' two-run homer to beat Pittsburgh. Sosa, who could be traded in the next few days, went l-for-3 with a double and two runs scored. " .-urn -'A ir -- . . AP Montreal pitcher Dustin Hermanson catches a line drive by Atlanta's Walt Weiss to end the second inning. Wells gets 13th victory Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. David Wells became the majors' first 13-game winner and Jose Cruz Jr. homered as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 5-2 last night Wells (13-2) pitched a five-hitter in picking up his sixth straight win and fourth complete game of the season. The left-hander struck out five and did not walk a batter for the ninth time in 17 starts. Toronto's Carlos Delgado extended his career-high hitting streak to 21 games with a fourth-inning single. He is tied with Baltimore's B.J. Surhoff for the longest current streak in the American League. Russ Johnson hit a solo homer for Tampa Bay in the third. The Devil Rays have home red in a team-record eight straight games. Tigers 13, Yankees 6 DETROIT Juan Encarnacion homered and drove in four runs as Detroit pounded the reeling New York Yankees. Tony Clark, Luis Polonia and Deivi Cruz also hit home runs for the Tigers, who have won three straight and are 5-0 at home this season against the two-time defending World Series champions. LtitVl afcj I .JS""'"t RIPKEN Ripken to miss All-Star Game: Cal Ripken was put on the 15-day disabled list yesterday because of an inflamed lower back, meaning the Baltimore third baseman will still be sidelined during the All-Star Game on July 11 at Atlanta. I i mpnen nas Deen voiea me stare-y " 1 ing AL third baseman a record 16 consecutive years. Ripken, who turns 40 in August, was batting .239 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. He had been healthy this year, playing in 62 of Baltimore's 74 games. The Orioles recalled third baseman Ryan Minor from Triple-A Rochester. Sosa trade stalled: The staredown between the Newbrk,iankees and Chicago Cubs continued yesterday, with neither side showing signs of blinking. It seems the Cubs are willing to wait this out until the Yankees are overcome with desperation, perhaps until the Jury 31 trading deadline. With pitcher Ramiro Mendoza going on the disabled list with a sore shoulder yesterday, the Yankees might shift their attention to bolstering their pitching staff. They had a scout in Philadelphia to watch the Phillies' Andy Ashby yesterday. Sosa's agent, Adam Katz, said his client wants to play at least another five or six years, and he reportedly wants from $15 million to $20 million a season. Shaw put on DL for first time: Los Angeles closer Jeff Shaw was placed on the disabled list yester day for the first time in his career because of tendinitis in his elbow. The move is retroactive to June 27 Replacing Shaw on the roster is right-hander Jamie Arnold, who was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. All-Star captains: Dale Murphy and Dave Win-field were picked yesterday as the honorary captains for the Jury 11 All-Star game at Turner Field. Murphy won the NL Most valuable Player award playing for the Atlanta Braves in 1982 and 1983. Win-field, a 12-time All-Star, had 3,110 hits. Mendoza injured: Right-hander Ramiro Mendoza, scheduled to start for the New Vbrk Yankees tonight at Detroit, was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with weakness in his right shoulder. Yankees Manager Joe Torre said left-hander Andy Pettitte, who pitched last Sunday at Chicago, will start today on three days' rest. Mendoza (7-3, 3.72 ERA) joins right-handers Roger Clemens and Orlando Hernandez on the Yankees' injury list. Torre said there's some hope that either Clemens or Hernandez or both could return by this weekend's series at Tampa Bay. Gonzalez hurting: Juan Gonzalez was a late scratch from the Detroit lineup against the New York Yankees last night with soreness in his left foot. Gonzalez was injured last Saturday when he fouled a pitch off his foot. He didn't play Sunday but was back in the lineup Tuesday, going 0-for-6 against the Yankees in the Tigers' 7-6, 11-inning win. Redman's offense gives Sounds a win Fly baB in 13th beats East leader By MAURICE PATT0N Sports Writer Tike Redman opened the game with an RBI and ended it with one, as his Bth-inning sacrifice fly gave the Nashville Sounds a 10-9 come-from-behind victory over Memphis yesterday. The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for the Sounds, who have lost 12 of their last 15 games. However, they are 13 12 games behind Memphis in the PCL Eastern Division "I was just glad to get the game over with," said Redman, who led off the game with a solo home run and tied the game at 9-9 with his eighth-inning fielder's choice. "We never quit battling. The pitchers threw well, and we got some key hits." But Redman also hit into a double play with runners at first and second to end the 10th. Behind Redman's solo shot and a two-run blast from Ray Montgomery, Nashville went up 3-0 in the first. However, Memphis got to Sounds starter Rob Mattson for eight runs in the second and third innings, and led 9-4 heading to the bottom of the fifth. Alex Hernandez, batting .089, tripled home a pair of runs to key a four-run rally as Nashville cut the margin to 9-8. The bullpen came through to let the offense eventually win it "I wouldn't say the bullpen has pitched badly," said Montgomery, who had a double and scored three runs. "We just haven't hit for them. We've got to catch and throw behind them We've got to get on the same page." Gavin Osteen, the fifth Sounds reliever, worked two-thirds of an inning to claim the victory. "It was a nice comeback," Sounds Manager Richie Hebner said. "The first four innings If" "irnHiwaii Sounds vs. Redbirds LHPDanSerafinl(24, 6.88), acquired yesterday from the San Diego organization, is expected to start for the Sounds against Memphis RHP Br! Reames (2-2, 2.88). Game time is 7 p.m. weren't real pretty to watch. I tried to stay with Mattson, but it wasn't one of his better performances." Hernandez finished with three hits to pace Nashville's 14-hit attack. Montgomery, Craig Wilson, John Wehner and Jarrod Patterson each added a pair of hits. Wilson was a late addition to the lineup, as Tim Laker was scheduled to catch knuckleball pitcher Mattson but arrived at the ballpark with a fever and had to be scratched. Wilson had a pair of passed balls and an error. "That was a good win for us," Montgomery said. "We played poorly early in the game, but nobody in here was just going to give it away." Comings and goings: The Sounds are also expected to add Pirates left-handed reliever Scott Sauerbeck to the roster soon Currently on the disabled list with a sprained left elbow, Sauerbeck is set to start a rehabilitation assignment. Jimmy Anderson returned to Pittsburgh following Tuesday's loss and will take the roster spot of reliever Rich Loiselle, who went on the DL with right shoulder bursitis. Anderson made two starts with the Sounds after being sent down on June 17 and compiled a 4.15 ERA over 13 innings, with seven strikeouts and four walks. Outfielder Emil Brown may soon be rejoining the Sounds on a rehab assignment following uro-logical surgery. Brown has not been cleared medically since going on the DL on June 19. -NEWSSERVICES American Conference Central Division W L Pet GB Albuquerque (Dodgers) 43 37 .538 Col.Springs (Rockies) 40 37 .519 ?Vi Omafio (Royals) 37 40 .481 5'i Iowa (Cubs) 33 47 .413 II Eastern Division Memphis (Cardinals) 49 31 .613 New Orleans (Astros) 39 39 .500 9'A Oklahoma (Rangers) 39 39 .500 9 Nashville (Pirates) 35 44 .443 13Vi Pacific Conference Southern Division W I Pet.
