iC THE PALM BEACH POST THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1991 msl lo St. Lucie rallies to defeat St. Petersburg 7-5 By PAUL BARNETT Palm Beach Post Staff Writer PORT ST. LUCIE - The St. Lucie Mets overcame an early 4-0 deficit to defeat the St. Petersburg Cardinals 7-5 at Thomas J. White Stadium Wednesday night. A pitching change and a four-run fourth inning made the difference. "Pitchers are going to have a bad night," Mets manager John Tamargo said. "It's been a long time since we had a four-run inning." St. Lucie pitcher Pete Walker in his 14th start hadn't give up more than one earned run in his last six outings but had to be replaced after giving four runs in three innings in his debut against the Cardinals. There were eight pitching changes, three for St. Lucie. The Mets (3-2) and the Cardinals (3-4) meet at Thomas J. White Stadium for the final game of a four-game series (St. Lucie leads 2-1) Thursday night at 7. The Cardinals touk the lead early when second baseman Brad Beanblossom singled and scored on a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Mauricio Numez. Numez also scored on a hit by first baseman Jonas Hamlin making it 2-0. St. Petersburg added to its lead in the top of the third on a two-run homer over the right field fence by catcher Paul Ellis. St. Lucie made it 4-2 in the bottom of the third inning as Cardinal pitcher Scott Baker walked Florida State League Mets catcher Kevin Carroll and second baseman Doug Saunders who were driven in by right fielder James Morrisette. Morrisette said he feels that the Mets have reached a turning point offensively. "When we got seven runs I said if we don't win now, I don't know what to do," Morrisette said. "This was a real uplift a real positive win." St. Petersburg resumed its scoring in the top of the fourth as shortstop Tripp Cromer singled and later scored on a hit by third baseman Steve Fanning. St. Lucie got its offensive game going as they batted around in the fourth inning with one walk and six hits scoring four runs to take the lead. A double by designated hitter Brook Fordyce brought in the tying run and after the second Cardinal pitching change of the inning, Morrisette's second RBI single gave the Mets a 6-5 lead. St. Lucie left fielder Mark Thomas walked in the fifth and managed to score on a double by center fielder Curtis Pride to increase the Mets' lead to 7-5. Tamargo said he was pleased with St. Lucie's ability to rally and hold the Cardinals mainly on the relief pitching of Chris Dorn. "Dorn did a great job in relief," Tamargo said. "We have strong relief pitching; now we have to work on hitting on the ground." West Palm Beach 6, Sarasota 5 WEST PALM BEACH Shortstop Scott Davison hit a grand slam to lead the Expos (3-2) over the White Sox (3-4.) Doug Bochtler (7-5) pitched six innings for the win, giving up two runs on four hits in six innings. Rusty Kilgo picked up his third save of the year, his second in two nights. Davison hit his grand slam jn the fourth following two singles and a walk. The Expos added two in the seventh, which turned out to be important when the White Sox rallied for three runs in the eighth. J Notes ...

Wimbledon scrambles to get back on schedule WIMBLEDONfrom 1C Richey Reneberg defeated 12th-seeded Cherkasov 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 in a match that began Tuesday and Gigi Fernandez eliminated 10th-seeded Sukova 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. The long rain delay further complicated an already messy schedule. Some players originally set to play Monday still have been unable to get on court. Only 46 first-round matches have been completed. At this point, about 180 first-and second-round matches should have been finished. "It's not quite critical, but it's getting close to that," Wimbledon referee Alan Mills said. "It's obviously been a very frustrating and depressing three days." But Mills said he still hopes to avoid play Sunday, traditionally a rest day at Wimbledon, and was optimistic the tournament can end as scheduled July 7. Mills said the two-week event could be completed on time even if the first round is not finished until Monday. Wimbledon librarian Alan Little, who has been at the Grand Slam tournament for 46 years, said the soggy weather was unprecedented. "I can't remember a wetter first three days," Little said. And the London Weather Center did little to lift the gloom, forecasting "a lot more showers" today. "Some of them may be heavy and prolonged and there may also be thunderstorms," forecasters said. "The showers are likely to start fairly early in the morning and are unlikely to die out until late evening, so prospects are not good (today)." Five matches were completed Wednesday before the rain began. Women's seeds Nathalie Tauziat and Anke Huber scored straight-set victories. The llth-seeded Tauziat defeated Regina Rajchrtova 6-4, 7-5 and 13th seed Huber beat German compatriot Veronika Martinek 6-1, 6-2. Pam Shriver, a three-time Wimbledon semifinalist, completed her 6-0, 7-5 victory over Baltimore neighbor Andrea Leand just before the rain began. "I noticed there were some dark clouds," Shriver said. "It's a funny thing playing with weather pressure. I nearly messed things up." Fourth seed Jim Courier was originally supposed to play Ro-dolphe Gilbert on Monday. Jimmy Connors also was rained out. Edberg, who as defending men's champion traditionally plays the first Centre Court match of the tournament, was bumped to the second match Tuesday and still has not completed his match with Switzerland's Marc Rosset. Edberg led 6-4, 6-4, 0-1 when rain forced play to be abandoned late Tuesday afternoon. Rosset managed to break his own mark for the fastest serve of the year with a 134 mph ace against Edberg, edging his mark of 132 mph set at the International Players Championships at Key Biscayne in March. Sukova, the women's 10th seed, had looked in good form Tuesday when she led Fernandez 6-4, 0-3 at the suspension of play. But returning Wednesday, the tall Czechoslovak let the match slip away and handed Fernandez a vie- Results Schedule Wednesday's results Men's singles First round Richey Reneberg, Palm Desert, Calif., def.

Sabatini found Javer a tough opponent on the Centre Court grass. The American-born Briton, ranked 104th in the world, began by serving well and her good returns took her to break point in the fourth game before Sabatini produced a service winner to hold. Broken in the fifth game, Javer gave Sabatini another fight in the eighth when she had two breakpoints and took the game five times to deuce. But after failing to convert three break points as Sabatini served for the set, Javer's spirits sagged and she allowed the Argentine to run away with the second set.
