CINCINNATI REDS Former Dodg ers pitcner Tim beicner after Sunday's 1-0 loss to Tom Candiotti at Dodger Stadium: "I Ditched well, but he pitched one run better. I was excited to pitch in this park, but I wasn't overly pumped up to face old teammates, but I was excited to pitch in this park because I've had so much success here."

PITTSBURGH PIRATES Manager Jim Leyland, asked what he thought the Mets could ultimately do after Pittsburgh beat New York 4-0 Sunday: "I think, and I'm being honest when I say this, that they are the only club that could blow the race open. The Cardinals, the Pirates, Montreal, Chicago all can win it. The Mets can run away." ST.

Montreal's Hill one-hits Mets 6-0 The Associated Press MONTREAL - Ken Hill pitched his first career one-hitter and drove in a run as the Montreal Expos beat the New York Mets 6-0 Monday night for their third straight victory. The only hit off Hill was pitcher Anthony Young's infield single to shortstop with two outs in the fifth inning. Shortstop Tom Foley went to his right and probably would have thrown out Young had Foley made the play, but he bobbled the ball. Official scorer Bob Mann said he ruled the play a single because the ball was hit deep into the hole. "I really wasn't thinking about that play," Hill said. "I had to stay focused. It was a little frustrating at the end of the game to think what might have been." Several Expos disagreed with Mann's call and made motions to the press box after the game ended. "It was a tough play," Foley said. "But if I come up with the ball who knows?" The Mets were shut out for the second straight game, losing 3-0 to Pittsburgh's Randy Tomlin Sunday, and for the ninth time in 56 games this season. Hill, who struck out eight and walked four, shut out the Mets for the second time this season. He beat the Mets 4-0 with a four-hitter at New York April 10. "Hill had the best stuff we've seen all year," Mets manager Jeff Torborg said. "I have no explanation. He just had good stuff." Cubs 5, Cardinals 2 (13 innings) ST. LOUIS Gary Scott and Jose Vizcaino, each batting under .200, keyed a four-run 13th-inning rally as Chicago beat St. Louis in the first game of a doubleheader. Scott, batting .109, hit the first pitch of the 13th inning from Juan Agosto (2-4) for a ground-rule double and advanced on a sacrifice. Agosto then hit Jerome Walton with a pitch before Vizcaino, batting .181, singled. Ryne Sandberg followed with a run-scoring single to make it 3-1. Andre Dawson drove in a run with a groundout, and Mark Grace had a run-scoring single. Phillies 7, Pirates 0 PHILADELPHIA Curt Schilling pitched a three-hitter for his first major league shutout and doubled in two runs in a six-run second inning as Philadelphia routed Pittsburgh. Reds 4, Giants 1 SAN FRANCISCO Greg Swindell, after giving up a leadoff homer to Darren Lewis, pitched eight strong innings as Cincinnati beat San Francisco. St. Lucie defeats Vero 7-5, ends 7-game slide By VICKI MICHAELIS Palm Beach Post Staff Writer PORT ST. LUCIE Vero Beach is becoming the team the St. Lucie Mets want to see on their schedule when they're on a losing streak. The Mets beat the Dodgers 7-5 Monday in front of 881 at Thomas J. White Stadium to end a seven-game losing streak. They snapped a nine-game losing streak, the longest this season, with a 9-7 win over the Dodgers May 27. "They always play us hard," Mets manager John Tamargo said of the Dodgers. "But we play them hard too." The Mets (28-30) scored first when Jay Davis doubled in Bernie Millan in the third inning. Roberto Mejia hit a solo home run for the Dodgers (26-31) in the fourth, then a three-run fifth gave Vero Beach a 4-1 lead. Willie Otanez singled and scored on a walk. Alton Pinkney singled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jay Kirkpatrick. Billy Lott singled to drive in Vernon Spearman, who reached on a bunt, before the Mets brought in right-hander Rob Carpentier to relieve starter Juan Castillo. Carpentier got the Dodgers' next two batters to ground out to end the fifth inning. Right-hander Denny Harriger relieved Carpentier in the eighth, striking out two. Mike Freitas pitched the ninth and recorded his 11th save. "Middle relief really helped us out, kept us in the ball game," Tamargo said. The Mets pulled within one in the seventh when Ed Fully scored on a groundout by Tim Sandy, and Alberto Castillo singled to score Aaron Ledesma. A four-run eighth, aided by a wild pitch and a throwing error by Jason Kerr, put the Mets ahead 7-4. Davis singled to lead off the inning and scored on a fielder's choice. Butch Huskey, who singled, scored on the error. A sacrifice fly by James Harris scored Fully, who was hit by a pitch. Ledesma scored on the wild pitch for the Mets' last run. Spearman doubled and scored FSL Standings W L Pet.

One day, the St. Louis Cardi-l nals' right-hander may be a teacher in a classroom, but he definitely will be on baseball fields, working with Little Leaguers, he says,; "teaching them how to pitch, how-to throw strikes." ,.' i What a shame that just one small group will get to partake of this knowledge. For Bob Tewks-i bury should be doing the teaching: of that lost art of pitching on a; much grander scale. -Tewksbury, simply put, is a! craftsman more than capable of; practicing a lost art, that of pitch-j ing capably and efficiently without! the benefit of overpowering stuff. ; He is a pitcher rather than a thrower, a thinker with an idea in a fraternity that, unfortunately,; seems more and more populated with lost souls without much of a! clue. ! Tewksbury is 6-1 while pitching for a team perilously close to the .500 mark. The 31-year-old pitcher, has allowed only 72 hits and 19 runs in 82 innings. His walks-to-strike-. outs ratio of 7 to 33 on the season! continues to defy imagination. ; And Tewksbury's ERA, built; over the course of 12 games (11! starts), is 2.09, indicative of the line; of demarcation he draws in front of; home plate in every game he pitch-! es. v' ! "The whole key to pitching is; not tricking people, it's the fastball, or the location of the fastball,"! Tewksbury said. ; "It's still the hardest pitch to hit-in baseball if it's put in the right! place. You can't hit both the outside; fastball and the inside fastball si-; multaneously. You have to hit one! better than the other and it's just; the job of the pitcher to find out; which one that is." " i Nowadays, though, strategies: such as "up and in, down and away" ; are in tatters in the psyches of too- many pitchers. '' i You can blame it on their nur-; turing in the era of the aluminum bat, the trauma starting in Little ! League and continuing through col- ; lege. i ! Or you can blame it on pitching . coaches who, reacting to those bal-; listic ball launchers called bats, put pitchers in a permanent defensive mode at an early age by emphasiz-! ing breaking balls and cunning; rather than fastballs and aggres-; siveness. Whatever the cause, the effect ; , is too often very obvious. Pitchers, ; having surrendered the inside part . of the plate, see emboldened hitters ; literally diving over the plate in ; order to lay into pitches. The results often are shell- shocked pitchers who look as if ; they are deciding on the lesser of two evils when it comes to pitch I selection, or who look like they ; would rather do almost anything ; than throw the ball to home plate. . These are the tricksters, by ; Tewksbury's definition, guys who ; try to fool the hitters because they . are afraid to throw certain pitches. Ah, but a pitcher, Tewksbury ; adds, "is somebody who utilizes all his pitches and all parts of the plate ! to exploit hitters' weaknesses." -Z ; SAN FRANCISCO Heredia L, 2-2 Hickerson Downs M.
