THE PALM BEACH POST WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 1988 5C Nezelek pitching for a spot BRAVESfrom 1C and control (34 walks) are strong enough that the Braves invited him to camp. It was quite a step, considering Nezelek wound up in professional baseball almost by accident. A two-sport star at Union Endicott (N.Y.) High School, he was set to accept a basketball scholarship to the University of Rochester. The school was doubly appealing: Nezelek wanted to major in mechanical engineering and Rochester has a good school and a good-enough basketball team. But Bucknell had the J.P. Mathi-as Award, a scholarship given to an athlete based on need and academic achievement. Nezelek was offered the award to play baseball. He accepted, knowing Bucknell's engineering school is one of the best in the Northeast. "I was just using the baseball to get an education ..." he said. "If I had the intentions of playing professional baseball, I wouldn't have gone to Bucknell. It's a lot of fun and a good school but it's not an outstanding baseball program." Not since Christy Mathewson has a Bucknell player gone to the major leagues, and Nezelek, playing against the Lehighs, Lafayettes and Drexels of the college baseball world, didn't figure he'd be the next. But scouts started watching him pitch in the summer of 1985 in the Northeastern Collegiate Baseball League. They sarted calling him (luring his junior year. When they called, though, he told them if he did turn pro before he got his degree he would want "an incredible amount" of money. "That way I figured they'd leave me alone and I could finish school," he said. But the Braves made him their fifth round pick in the 1986 draft. He told the team he'd sign if they would let him graduate. "That's all I really wanted," he said, "and they gave it to me." 'I So Nezelek finished his junior year and then went 2-4 with a 2.71 ERA for Pulaski in the Rookie ; League in 1986. After he was graduated last year, he went to Class A Sumter (S.C.) and went 6-3 with a 1.80 ERA, walking 12 and striking out 67 in 85 innings. Nezelek's out pitch is his curve, which some have said is the best in the Braves organization. He said he needs to work on it to throw it more consistently, and he needs to develop an offspeed pitch. Because of that and because of his limited experience, he expects to begin the season in the minors. But he won't be surprised if he's in Atlanta before the season ends. "Of course I hope to make the team, but being realistic, I'd be happy in AA or AAA," he said. "Especially in this organization. Being with either team anything can happen. You can get moved up from AA or AAA." Akins, 25, is in the same situation. "I expect to start in the minors," he said, "but sometime during the year I might be up." A member of the 1984 U.S. Olympic team, Akins has emerged during camp. Tuesday he came in with one out and the bases loaded in the seventh and threw four strikes in a row to Dave Magadan. Two were called strikes, one was fouled off and the third was hit into a 6-4-3 double play. "Sure I was nervous," said Akins, the winning pitcher. "Really nervous. I didn't expect to even be called in there like that in a spring training game." "I've said before I wouldn't hesitate to do something like that," Tanner said. "It's good for these guys. He handled it well. That guy (Magadan) is a good hitter, but he . kept the ball down and got him to ; hit it on the ground." At 6-feet-4 and 170 pounds, Akins ! is a deceptively fast pitcher whose J motion makes it hard for the hitter 1 to pick up the ball. In 285 profes-! sional innings, he's walked just 87 ! hitters and struck out 244. ! "You just play the odds," he said. ; "Throw strikes and you'll get them ' out most of the time." Akins originally was selected by Texas in the third round of the June, 1984 draft. After 1985 the Rangers didn't re-sign him, though. "I had some arm trouble over there," Akins said. "Some tendinitis. My velocity was only about 79, 80 miles per hour." The Braves took a chance and signed him as a free agent in May of 1986. Last year, his first as a reliever, he went a combined 6-6 with a 2.56 ERA and six saves for Class A Durham (N.C.) and Class AA Greenville (S.C). The ability to come in and throw strikes as a reliever the way he did Tuesday may be his ticket to the majors. "I'd like to be a starter," he said, "but I'd do anything to play in the major leagues." Said Tanner, "They're here to show us their ability, to do all they can to impress us and then not worry what we'll do. It's not like they're 38 and this is their last time to the post. i ExposBraves Today Next gam: The Montreal Expos piay the Atlanta Braves today in a 1 :05 game at Municipal Stadium.

Tampa's Special to The Palm Beach Post BOCA RATON - Tampa scored three unearned runs in the last two innings Tuesday for a 3-2 victory over Florida Atlantic University in a college baseball game at FAU.

FAU (17-5-1), ranked second among the nation's NCAA Division II baseball teams, took a 2-0 lead on singles by Jeff Bennett and Eric David, a walk to Mike Harrison and Jack Penrod's two-run single, but Militello got out of trouble by getting Brian Covin to hit into a double Play-Left-hander Mike Fascetti (4-2) shut out the sixth-ranked Spartans (7-6) until the eighth, when shortstop Rene Martinez was safe on a two-out error and catcher Freddie Langiotti hit his second home run in two days to tie the score.

Seles, , who won her first pro match in her first try Monday, drew the attention of quite a few players who watched her play Evert. Afterward, she was happy to go home with the added experience. "I'm so happy to get to play her," said Seles. "It was a little harder than I thought but it helped me get some confidence." Since beating Navratilova in the semifinals of the Australian Open and subsequently losing the final to Graf, Evert has been practicing her game in a variety of places. She spent some time at her home at the Polo Club, training with local pro Juan Nunez of Royal Palm Polo Club. Then she met boyfriend Andy Mill at the Winter Olympics in Calgary and trained for a week in Aspen before returning to Boca Thursday. "Ideally, I wouldn't like to play a 14-year-old phenom after five weeks off," said Evert. "Especially after what happened here last year." Evert lost to Kate Gompert in the third round of last year's Slims of Florida. That loss, however, came after a five-month layoff. Pate knocks off Connors; Nystrom falls at Du Pont Palm Beach Post Wire Services ORLANDO - Unseeded David Pate upset third-seeded Jimmy Connors 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 Tuesday in the first round of the $415,000 Du Pont Classic tennis tournament. Pate, of Las Vegas, Nev., is ranked 20th in the world, Connors fifth. "I used to idolize him," Pate said. "It's hard to play someone you used to ballboy for." Dan Cassidy of "Atlanta, ranked 119th in the world, upset seventh-seeded Joakim Nystrom of Sweden 6-0, 7-6 (7-5). Other first-round winners included Miloslav Mecir of Czechoslovakia and top-seeded Mats Wilander of Sweden, who is playing in his first tournament since winning the Australia Open. Connors was up a break in both sets against Pate. In the second set, Connors was serving for a 4-2 lead. At deuce, the chair umpire overruled an out call against Pate to give him a break point, which he won. "The overrule is the worst rule in tennis." Connors said. "I don't care For the record, 1,203 When Dan Woodard, Ken Zimmer, Ed Booke, Jan Landak and Jim Vitolo bowled an 1,185 scratch game at Verdes Tropicana last month, they thought they had set a county record. According to this year's Palm Beach County American Bowling Congress record book, the highest five-man single game total was 1,174 pins. Actually, they did not set a record. Last year, the record was broken twice, but the scores were not recorded before the latest printing of the ABC book. During the Tenth Frame Pro Shop Winter league last year, the team of Jimmy Dimeglio, Mark Gallo, Tim Hepler, Larry Morris Jr. and Dan Ross rolled an 1,197, led by Gallo's 277. The team also set a county record for scratch series with 3,374 pins, which still stands. The next night, during the Ultimate Bowlers Association Winter Classic league, the team of John Wagner, Joe Lavender, Tom Co-burn, Steve Berris and Mark Kennedy rolled a 1,203 game to establish the record. Wagner bowled a 265. The 1,185 game rolled by Woodard's team is actually the third-best sanctioned team score in county history, but ranks as the highest single-game score of the season, and the highest in Verdes history. The Palm Beach County Bowling Classic is giving its final show a new twist. The show, which will be taped in April, will feature only junior bowlers. The two boys and girls chosen unearned College Baseball Florida 6, Stetson 0 GAINESVILLE - It wasn't pretty and Gators coach Joe Arnold wasn't that impressed with it, but junior Tim Cox, making his first start of the season, pitched six scoreless innings before giving way to Jamie McAndrew in a shutout win over the Hatters (8-8) at Perry Field. Cox scattered seven hits over six innings, struck out three and walked none before being relieved in the seventh. McAndrew struck out five and gave up only one hit in getting his second save of the year. But Arnold wasn't impressed. "I wasn't that impressed with him (Cox). He was fair," Arnold said after the game. "It was only a matter of time before he came out because they started to hit him sharply. His location was way off. We know where we want to pitch certain people but he didn't get it there. He needs better location "I didn't feel rusty tonight," said Evert. "I don't feel like I've dropped off from Australia." Shriver's victory was nearly as overwhelming as George Bush's, for whom she has been campaigning in Florida. "Yeah, I served pretty well today," said Shriver. "I'm glad I had a day match because I want to watch a few of the election returns tonight." Sukova, who was the runner-up to Graf last year here, said she played well considering the adjustment from indoors. "The wind makes it a little more difficult but it's nice to get out in the sun. I always kind of look forward to a tournament when I did well in it the year before. It gives you that confidence." Notes . . . Carting Bassett Seguso, who lives in Boca Raton, was at the tournament Tuesday. She is seven days overdue with her baby and said she plans to have labor induced March 15 if she hasn't delivered. She has gained only 15 pounds during her pregnancy. . . . Shriver, who is registered to vote in Maryland, mailed her absentee ballot Thursday for Bush. "It's looking all right for him now," she said. "But I never doubted him." Tennis if I won or I lost. I just go out there and try to play good tennis, but some of these rules, I just don't know."

Cox missed last weekend's road trip to Kentucky, where Florida (13-7-1) lost two of three games. "My location hasn't been there the last times that I've pitched," Cox said. "That's why I didn't get to go to Kentucky. But I thought about it a lot over the weekend and I made up my mind to go out and have a positive outing. There were some problems, but I think I got one." Florida got all the runs it needed when Jose Fernandez, former Palm Beach Junior College player, doubled in the second inning to score Allen Rutledge for a 1-0 lead. In the third, Tommy Edwards singled and went to second base on a throwing error. He went to third on a single by Ned Brigham and scored on an error by third baseman Kevin Weickel.
