I could tell you dozens of horror stories about what the Giants have done to guys, but I'm not going to get into that. "They just don't like to help you. If you're struggling at all up there, they'd just as soon send you down to the minors, then .try and give you some help. That's their style. They don't want to deal with it." He was 2-6 with a 5.88 ERA average this season. McGwire belts No. 27, boosts A's over Mariners Spoils Seattle's 1st game under new ownership SEATTLE Mark McGwire hit his major' league-leading 27th homer, a two-run shot in the eighth inning Wednesday that gave the Oakland Athletics a 3-1 victory over Seattle in the Mariners' first game under Japanese-led ownership. The $106 million sale by Jeff Smulyan to' The Baseball Club of Seattle was completed late Tuesday night and some of the new Mariners owners watched the game from Smulyan's old owner's box. John Ellis, chief executive officer, and Chuck Armstrong, club president, were in the Kingdome for the game. A crowd of 21,127 saw the Mariners lose for the 10th time in 12 games. The A's completed a three- game sweep and improved to 6-0 against the Mariners. Mike Moore (8-7) broke his four-game losing streak, giving up one run and four hits in seven innings. Dennis Eckersley pitched the ninth for his third save of the series. He converted his 28th straight save chance of the season and 32nd in a row in two years, extending his major league records. Harold Baines singled with one out in the eighth and McGwire followed with a 427-foot homer to center field off Mark Grant (0-1). It was McGwire's first homer of the series but fourth in 1 1 games. "It was a fastball," McGwire said. "In fact, it was the first fastball I got over the plate in the whole series." Seattle's Jay Buhner had hit a two-out homer, his 10th, to tie the score at 1 in the seventh. Twins 2, Angels 1 ANAHEIM, Calif. Chili Davis snapped a tie with a sacrifice fly in the sixth and Minnesota's pitchers came up with another fine performance as the Twins won their sixth straight game. Johnson's help Mets CHICAGO Howard Johnson hit a go-ahead single in the 12th inning and Junior Noboa hit a sacrifice fly as the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, 6-4, Wednesday and stopped a three-game losing streak. Todd Hundley opened the 12th with a single off Jim Bullinger (0-1), and pinch-hitter Willie Randolph and Johnson followed with singles. Bill Pecota walked, loading the bases, and Noboa flied to medium center. Lee Guetterman (1-0) pitched 1 innings for his first league victory and Anthony Young got three outs for his first save. Chicago had a chance to win in the ninth when Kal Daniels, making his first appearance since being acquired from Los Angeles, singled and Jose Vizcaino doubled. But the sore-kneed Daniels was thrown out at the plate by first baseman Eddie Murray, who relayed the throw from right fielder Bobby Bonilla. Astros 3, Reds 2 HOUSTON Eric Anthony homered off Scott Bankhead leading off the ninth as Houston completed a three-game sweep. Cincinnati starter Tom Browning suffered an injury to his left leg in a sixth-inning collision with catcher Scott Servais. Doug Jones (5-5) pitched two hitless innings for the victory, Houston's fourth in five games. Anthony, who has 33 RBIs in his past 47 games, hit his sixth home run on the first pitch of the ninth by Pena gets call during Birds' loss Reprinted from Wednesday's late editions By Bob McManaman The Arizona Republic Firebirds pitcher Jim Pena started to get a little hot under the collar when Manager Bill Evers gave him the hook after only three innings Tuesday night. Pena had given up four runs and six hits, two of which were solo home runs, but he thought his manager would stick with him a little bit longer. "Yeah, but then he told me why I was really coming out," Pena said. "I couldn't believe it." Despite taking the loss as the Colorado Springs Sky Sox' defeated the Firebirds, 7-3, Pena learned he was getting promoted to the parent San Francisco Giants. What started out to be a pretty depressing night in front of 4,709 at Scottsdale Stadium, turned into a American League The Twins have won 13 of 15, and have pitched shutouts in five of the past 11 games. They are 6-0 against California, which has lost four in a row. Jim Abbott (4-10) lost again because of a lack of hitting support. He gave up two runs and eight hits, striking out seven and walking one in his fifth complete game, only one of them a victory. Willie Banks (3-1) limited the Angels to a run in five innings, giving up three hits, walking two and striking out four. Relievers Mark Guthrie, Gary Wayne and Tom Edens blanked California until Rick Aguil-era took over in the ninth for his 23rd save. Orioles 7, Brewers 4 BALTIMORE Bill Ripken had a homer and three RBIs and Ben McDonald won his first game in a month for Baltimore. Sam Horn and Brady Anderson also homered for the Orioles. McDonald, 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA in his past five starts, allowed four runs, eight hits and two walks in six-plus innings. McDonald (8-5) departed in the seventh after giving up his major league-high 20th homer, a two-run drive by Franklin Stubbs. Ripken went 4 for 4. He is 9-for-ll lifetime against Milwaukee's Bill Weg-man (7-6). Yankees 7, Royals 6 NEW YORK Matt Nokes hit a two-run, pinch-homer in the seventh and New York overcame an early six-run deficit to rally past Kansas City. Wally Joyner's three-run homer in the second off Tim Leary put the hit, Noboa's sacrifice down Cubs in 12th National League Bankhead (8-2). Expos 6, Phillies 3 PHILADELPHIA Dennis Martinez won for the eighth time in 10 decisions as Montreal sent winless rookie Kyle Abbott to his 10th loss. Martinez (9-6) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings, struck out out four and walked one. John Wetteland pitched 1 perfect innings for his 13th save. Abbott moved within two of Ken Reynolds' 1972 Philadelphia record for most consecutive losses at the start of the season. Montreal blew open the game in the seventh when it batted around. Giants 2, Braves 1 SAN FRANCISCO Bud Black gained his 100th career victory as San Francisco shook off its June swoon by opening July with a win. The Giants, who lost 19 of 26 games last month and fell from first place to fourth, scored two first-inning runs and won for the second time in eight games. Atlanta lost for the fourth time in five games after winning 16 of 19. Black (5-2) evened his career record at 100-100 and won for the fifth time in six decisions. He held Atlanta to five hits in 7W innings, struck out five and walked one. Terry Pendleton hit his 13th home run with two outs in the eighth, and Rod Beck finished with one-hit relief pleasant surprise for the 27-year-old left-hander, who never has tasted life in the majors. "It hasn't sunk in yet," said Pena (7-3), who was making only his second start after 31 appearances in relief. Infielder Craig Colbert also was promoted to the Giants, who will be sending infielder Greg Litton and pitcher Gil Heredia back to the Firebirds. Evers said the conversation with Pena went something like this: "I told him, 'Jim, that's enough,' and he said, 'Why?' I said, 'Because you're going to San Francisco in the morning.' "He thought I was kidding him." Pena also thought about maybe saying something he shouldn't have. "When he told me he was pulling me out, I started to get mad," he said. "I didn't understand what was going Royals ahead, 6-0. Leary", pitching for the first time since the league's president, Dr. Bobby Brown, cleared him of cheating allegations filed by the Baltimore Orioles, gave up six runs and five hits, three walks and a wild pitch in 1 innings. "It's a tough loss any time you lose a six-run lead," Royals Manager HaL. McRae said. "Usually I like to have a beer after the game. Today I'm having milk." Nokes hit his 10th home run and second in two days. Tom Gordon (1-8) hit Jim Leyritz with a pitch and gave up Nokes' third career pinch home run.
