Lidback, 30, has never finished higher than fifth place In any tournament during her five years on the tour. She did not play for three straight months earlier this year, failing to get into tournaments because of her non-exempt status. But she moved atop the leaderboard with a birdie on No. 3 and got successive birdies on Nos. 9 and 10 before finishing with eight straight pars for a 9-under-par 204 total. Lidback didn't even look at the leaderboard, not knowing she held the lead until a reporter told her. "I didn't look because there's too much golf left," Lidback said. NOW'S THE TIME Both Lee Janzen (68) and Duffy Waldorf (70) bird-led the final hole and moved Into a tie for the lead at 4-under 209 after a massive collapse all but erased the red from the third-round leader-board in the Buick Classic.

Compiled from staff, wire reports by Carol Stuart mai i Shriver, Garrison-Jackson slug out verbally volleys An on-court flareup between Pam Shriver and Zlna Garrison-Jackson overshadowed their quarterfinal match at the Edgbaston tournament which Garrison-Jackson won 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. During the match, played on an Indoor court because rain made grass-court tennis unplayable, Shriver fired the ball at Garrison-Jackson and swore at her opponent's fans. After her match, Garrison-Jackson still was fuming over her run-in with Shriver. "She acted like a bitch. I couldnt believe that she didnt get a warning," Garrison-Jackson said. Garrison said that she was sure Shriver was "a good person at heart." "But I heard some of the things she was saying about me like calling me stupid," she said. "I would never say things like that about her." The 29-year-old from Houston said she considered some of Shrivers actions and comments to be racist Shriver, a 30-year-old from Baltimore, denied that allegation. "There are a lot of things about me but I don't have a racist bone in my body. That hurts a little bit," Shriver said. She said that she would apologize to Garrison-Jackson for her behavior on what she described as "not a good day".

Johnson, Armstrong wage their own battle But Bulls also winning point guard matchup By JOHN JACKSON Gannett News Service CHICAGO Forget about Michael Jordan vs. Charles Barkley. The matchup most responsible for the Chicago Bulls winning the first two games of the NBA Finals is the battle of the point guards. The Bulls, led by BJ. Armstrong, have done a terrific job containing and frustrating Phoenix all-star Kevin Johnson, who has a total of 15 points (6-for-21 shooting) and nine turnovers. Johnson has been so erratic that Suns coach Paul Westphal has had to replace him several times with backup Frank Johnson. Kevin Johnson had four points Friday. "It was just a rough game for Kevin," Westphal said. "He's probably taking this harder than anyone and he shouldn't" Johnson has attacked and taken the ball in the lane only to be swarmed by Chicago defenders. "They do a great job of helping out on the front line," Johnson said. "You get past one guy and you still have to face their front line." "BJ.'s done a good job," Michael Jordan said. "The team's done a good job of taking some of the passing lanes away from KJ. It's surprising to see that we've been able to keep him under wraps." The 19,023 fans also were surprised, some of whom booed Johnson. That infuriated Barkley, who lashed out at the fans at the post-game news conference. "We wouldn't be here without Kevin Johnson," Barkley said. "If you're not going to stick with him when things aren't going well for him, please don't come to the games. And I'm not concerned If they don't like it. They know where to find me." NBA Finals CHICAGO VS.

Barkley involved in Chicago lawsuit CHICAGO (AP) A Chicago man has sued Charles Barkley and Jayson Williams, alleging the two NBA players lied to police to get him arrested and avoid arrest after a barroom fight last year. Christopher Vincent a professional athletic trainer, claims In the lawsuit that Williams smashed a beer mug across his head and beat him severely in a hotel bar Jan. 15, 1992. He claims the attack was unprovoked and the players falsely told police he had threatened Williams, according to Daniel Alexander, Vincent's lawyer. Chicago police said at the time of the incident that Vincent harassed Barkley and Williams, then teammates with Philadelphia, at the bar after the 76ers lost to the Bulls. The players walked away, but Vincent persisted. Vincent was arrested and charged with aggravated assault The charges were dropped when neither player showed up on two trial dates. Neither Barkley nor Williams was charged. Today's game SOUNDS: Now a 6:35 p.m. double-header, the Sounds will go with Mike Mongiello (2-1, 4.18) and Steve Schrenk (1-2, 7.29) against the Indianapolis Indians' Scott Service (4-2, 4.62) and Mike Anderson (3-3, 3.60). XPRESS: The Xpress will spend today traveling to North Carolina, where they will begin a three-game series with the Carolina Mu-dats tomorrow at 6:35 p.m. Xpress win in the 10th against the Lookouts Nashville's Marty Cordova's two-run double in the 10th Inning broke a 6 tie as the Nashville Xpress beat the host Chattanooga Lookouts 8-6 last night in a Southern League game. The win dropped the Xpress' magic number to clinching the first half of the Western Division race to two games. It also broke the Xpress' nine-game losing streak for extra-inning games. Cordova went 2-for-3 in the game. Both of his hits were dpu-bles. Chattanooga took a 3-1 lead in the third on a two-run homer by Brian Koelling and a fielder's choice by Jamie Dismuke. But Nashville answered with three runs in the fifth, including one by Cordova and a two-run single by catcher Mike Durant Darron Cox then tied up the game at 6-6 for Chattanooga in the ninth with an RBI single. But Cardova gave the Xpress a two-run lead in the 10th and reliever Jason Klonoski held the Lookouts scoreless for his third save of the year. Nashville relief pitcher Bob Robinson (2-3) got the victory. Calvain Culberson (1-4) was the loser. The Xpress, off today, open a three-game series against the host Carolina Mudcats beginning tomorrow and return home to Greer Stadium Thursday, k Showers abound: It was a fitting occasion for a baby shower. Last night's Nashville-Indianapolis game was held up some 2-and-a-half hours by rain, but it gave the wives of the Sounds ample time for their baby shower for Trish Carter, wife of pitcher Jeff Carter. The heavy rains reduced a scheduled double-header to a single nine-inning game that got under way about 8:30 p.m. The washed-out second game will be made up as a seven-inning double-header tonight, beginning at 6:35. Renlck pleased: At nine games above .500, Sounds Manager Rick Renick can't help but be happy with the way things are going for his team. "We haven't played as well defensively as we can, but our pitching is starting to come around," Renick said. "We've had a lot of pitching moves and we've had some kids come up from Double-A, and inexperience has hurt them. But they keep working hard and if we can keep our heads above water until they get their feet on the ground, we'll be all right" ANTHONV COLEMAN and TOM WOOD Southern League Greenville (Braves) Orlando (Cubs) Carolina (Pirates) KnoxvIHe (Blue Jays) J'vMe (Mariners) First Haft Easttm Drvttien w LMGI 37 25 .S97 - 33 29 .532 4 30 32 .484 7 mi ill i 21 35 .444 tVi ill . i i.i ii riMtifln Nashville (Twins) 37 24 .587 -Huntsville (Alhllcs) 31 31 .500 5'J Chattanooga (Reds) 30 33 76 7 Birmingham (WSox) 2 34 .40 I Memphis (Rovals) 21 34 .452 IV Friday's Games Carolina 7, Orlando 2 Jacksonville I, KnoxvIHe 3 Nashville 3-6, Chattanooga 2-1 Huntsville I, Birmingham 7, (11) Greenville I.

Merullo wore a wireless microphone for the entire game on Friday night and had a stellar night Not only did Merullo have an outstanding night at the plate, but also behind the plate, as far as the video went Besides going 3-for-4 with four RBI, Merullo also took a ball on the catcher's mask and was involved in a play at the plate. "The idea was they just wanted to get a feel for what it was like as a catcher on just any regular day and just asked me to be myself, so that means they're going to have to bleep out a lot of bad words," Merullo said, grinning. "It turned out to be great because we had all kinds of action. We had the usual trip to the mound, a foul tip off the mask I'm sure that sounded good with the microphone right there and there was a crucial play at the plate in the last inning. "It also brought me some good luck at the plate. But I had to move the battery pack to my other pocket just in case I had to slide on it That wouldn't have been too comfortable." Sounds Manager Rick Renick hopes the upcoming special gives the fans an idea of a catcher's difficult role. "It will be a good insight as far as the fans are concerned what's said when guys go to the mound and the thinking of the pitcher-catcher relationshp. It will be good for the fans' perspective,. I just tried to keep out of the way and not try to mess them up," Renick said. Even though he'd never done anything like it Merullo was extremely comfortable in the feature role. And so were producer Shane Waldsmith and director Mark Greenwald of MaxiMedia. "It was incredible the way it worked out" Greenwald said. "We couldn't have scripted it better. We're also doing a feature on thira baseman Chris Cron." MMsWM!ltonL4ilhe
