(UPI photo) Baines belts 3 home runs to lift Sox MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) - Harold Baines has become rather selective about his pitches, choosing the ones that can sail out of the ballpark. The Chicago outfielder found three he liked Monday night, smacking a trio of home runs to drive in four runs, powering the White Sox to a 7-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins. The loss dropped the Twins out of first place in the American League West, which Kansas City took over with a 10-1 victory over California. The Twins are now one game behind while the Angels are Vt games out. "This is the second time I've hit three homers," said Baines, who notched home run Nos. 25, 26 and 27. "The last time one of the homers was a grand slam, so that was a little more enjoyable." Twins Manager Billy Gardner said starting and losing pitcher John Butcher only made a few mistakes, which "Harold Baines didn't miss." Butcher, 12-9, gave up two solo shots to Baines in the first and fifth innings, while reliever Ed Hodge served the third a two-run shot 460 feet to right. "I'm going to play trivial pursuit now," Butcher said. "I'll be the answer to one of the questions 'who is one of two pitchers to give up three home runs to Harold Baines in one game?'" The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the White Sox, who had scored only nine runs in six previous games. "I hate to play a club like this," Gardner said. "They haven't been hitting and they've got a lot of talent on their club. I'd rather play the contenders." Cub lottery starts Cub fans interested in joining the team's PlayoffWorld Series Lottery to have a chance at purchasing postseason tickets need to act immediately by sending a post card with their name, address and phone number to the club.

(UPI) - Coaches Bill Mallory of Indiana and Dennis Green of Northwestern both have had losing seasons so far, but Mallory is disgusted and Green is pleased. "I'm quite disgusted with the way we played. I just thought that we'd come out and play sounder," Mallory said Monday of Indiana's 48-14 loss to Kentucky Saturday. He said the team's mistakes were caused by carelessness and lack of poise. Chicago lost three straight to the contending Angels and White Sox Manager Tony LaRussa tried to compare the two teams.;; "The Twins were really ready tonight just as the Angels were," LaRussa said. "But when you have a pitcher like (LaMarr) Hoyt throwing like that, there's nothing you can do." Hoyt, 13-16, scattered seven hits, struck out four and walked no one. The right-hander just missed notching his 12th complete game when he was struck in the kneecap by Randy Bush's grounder with two out in the ninth. Ron Reed finished the game for the White Sox. "The ironic thing is I was thinking, he was going to hit it back at me and he did and I didn't see it," Hoyt said. Minnesota's Kent Hrbek smashed a one-out, two-run home run, his 26th, in the ninth inning into the center field seats which Hoyt didn't see either. "Herbie got a hold of one and maybe that will pick us up," Gardner said. "The thing we have to avoid is a sweep." Hoyt, who leads the American League in fewest walks allowed, said the Twins seemed a little anxious. "Really none of my pitches were working," the 29-year-old righthander said. "But it didn't matter. The Twins were swinging at just about anything. "When they got a man on base, I'd look over there a couple of times -and I could see the batters getting nervous," Hoyt said. "We're hitting the ball well but they aren't falling for us," Minnesota's Tom Brunansky said. only 7,000 tickets would be available. That means only 3,500 winners will be drawn for each game.

"We are not as poised as one has to be when you encounter adversity." Kentucky battered Indiana, sidelining Tom flendrickson and Dave Zyzda for the Northwestern game with knee injuries and making Mark Weiler doubtful with an ankle injury. Mallory said there was no fundamental fault with Spartans overpower Marengo SYCAMORE - Sparked by the serving of Shelley DuBois and the net play of Debbie Cornils and Missy Winter, Sycamore High School's girls' volleyball team pummelled Marengo Monday 15-3, 15-7. The win boosted the Spartan girls' record to 5-1 on the season. "I was happy we played at a pretty high level of play despite the fact the score was lopsided," Sycamore coach Jeff Welcker said. "Debbie Cornils came off the bench to do a good job spiking and Missy Winter had a good game, too. She was six for eight with7 three spike kills."
