s c THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, MAY 10, 1993 5C IRCC falls 9-8 in state tournament Marlins Report Florida Marlins (14-16) vs. New York Mets (10-18), 7:40 p.m., Shea Stadium. PITCHERS: Marlins' Ryan Bowen (2-3) vs. Bret Saberha-gen (2-3). TV: WBFS-33. RADIO: WJNO- 1230AM and 1330AM; WQAM-560AM. Marlins Line 3321 jffff (iv upaates a game SEE 3? J IF THE PEOPLE in Coopers-town are shown a tape of Eddie Murray's final at-bat Sunday, the New York first baseman might never make it into baseball's Hall of Fame. That's how bad Florida closer Bryan Harvey made him look with his violent forkball. Representing the go-ahead run, Murray feebly waved his bat at three Harvey offerings, a somewhat limp finish to a ninth-inning rally that was very serious earlier. "I just split it and throw it as hard as I can," said Harvey, who has struck out nine of the last 10 He has retired. His escape Sunday was classic closer. Joe Orsulak led off with an 0-2 single, and Todd Hundley reached on Alex Arias' error. Howard Johnson, the tying run, struck out on a 3-2 splitter. "He should be fined and suspended by the league for that nasty pitch," shortstop Walt Weiss said. After striking out Vince Coleman, Harvey gave up an RBI single to Dave Gallagher. He then belittled Murray. "Without Harvey," manager Rene Lache-mann said, "we'd be in the outhouse." THE MARLINS released veteran left-handed reliever Gene Walter from their Class AAA Edmonton affiliate and promoted Tom McGraw to replace him. Walter, 32, who spent most of spring training with the parent club, was 2-0 with a 7.88 ERA in six appearances for the Trappers. McGraw, a left-handed starter, was 2-3 with a 3.55 ERA for Class A High Desert. He was obtained in the spring from Milwaukee in exchange for pitcher Jamie McAndrew. Florida also signed infielder Edison Renteria, the older brother of minor leaguer Edgar Renteria, and assigned him to High Desert. "IF I DON'T get it, I should be shot." Harvey when asked about breaking the expansion record of 1 6 saves in a season. He picked up No. 10 Sunday and is on a pace to save 54. JEFF MILLER FLORIDA AB R H Bl BB SO Avg. WEISS singled in a run in the second and doubled in another in the third. The double was Weiss' first extra-base hit since he tripled in his first at-bat of the season, snapping a streak of 22 straight singles. And all this, naturally, came after Weiss had to change a tire on his father's car just to make it to the park. Weiss and his dad, who lives in the New York City area, had a blowout about 2 miles from Shea Stadium Sunday morning. "I was out there playing the Penske racing team," he said. "I thought Lach was going to fine me for showing up in soiled clothes." Weiss was asked about the irony of how his trying start ended up being such a prosperous day. "I just might slice his tires on the way to the yard tomorrow," he said. CHRIS HAMMOND said he felt strong. Lachemann, however, felt he had had enough. So the Florida starter was pulled after seven innings and 1 02 pitches with a 6-1 lead. Hammond said he understood the rationale behind the move but was a bit curious about what circumstances will be necessary for a pitcher to get Florida's first complete game. "I felt good, especially with the big lead," he said. "But what's it going to take? A 6-0 lead, a tired bullpen and no chance for Harvey to get a save? But as long as we win and I pitch well, I'm happy." Hammond, who had not had a strikeout in 10 innings entering Sunday's game, struck out the side in the first.

THIRD BASEMAN Dave Magadan saved a run in the second inning with a diving stop of a Tim Bogar ground ball. Magadan picked himself up and threw to first in time to get Bogar for the final out as baserunner Tony Fernandez rounded third. Magadan took an extra base hit away from Vince Coleman in the eighth when he made another diving stop going toward the line. "It was just one of those games where I got a couple balls at a very diveable distance," he said. REMEMBER that undisclosed fine levied against catcher Benito Santiago for oversleeping Saturday morning? Well, he said he more than compensated for the loss by signing 1 .000 baseballs Saturday night. He estimated that the balls will bring him about $ 10,000 from memorabilia dealers.

Miami-Dade Wolfson, extracting revenge for two end-of-season defeats that cost it the Southern Conference baseball championship, scored eight runs in the third inning and outlasted Indian River Community College 9-8 Sunday night. The Barracudas (38-12), who beat No. 1 -ranked Manatee two nights earlier, remained the only undefeated team in the state tournament with their victory over the second-ranked Pioneers (37-12) at Osceola County Stadium. "It was a pathetic ending for a pathetic game," said IRCC coach Mike Easom, whose club scored two runs in the eighth and three in the ninth but could not get the tying run home from third with one out in the final inning. IRCC, which led the state with a .345 team batting average, did not get a hit off Joel Delgado (5-0) College Baseball until Tom Ward led off the sixth with an opposite-field single. By that time, Wolfson had scored nine runs on nine hits and five IRCC errors. Right-hander Dwayne Cush-man (4-2), who shut out Edison 4-0 in his last start for "The River," lasted only 2 innings against the Barracudas, giving up eight runs in the third before being relieved by Keith Brumm. Eddie Rivero's triple and Dan Serrano's double produced Wolf-son's ninth run in the fourth before Jay Evans relieved Brumm. Rivero and Serrano made first team all-state for the Barracudas. The Pioneers scored an unearned run on three Wolfson errors in the top of the first. They made it 2-0 in the second when Rob Gladwin walked, stole second, went to third on Bobby Dall's infield out and scored on Ricky Gonzalez's sacrifice fly. Delgado retired 11 in a row before Ward's sixth-inning single. The Pioneers loaded the bases on walks to Kelvin Washington and Neill James but failed to score when 6-foot-7, 240-pound freshman Matt Powell relieved Delgado and retired Gladwin and Dall. IRCC scored its third run in the seventh when Andy Stenger was hit by a pitch, went to second on Gonzalez's infield out, took third on Mark Weeks' single and scored on Washington's grounder to short. The Pioneers added two runs in the eighth. Gladwin doubled, went to third on Dall's infield out and scored on Stenger's single. Stenger reached second on an error, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a single by Gonzalez. In the top of the ninth, the Pioneers loaded the bases for the third time in four innings. Ward singled, Washington walked and first team all-stater Mitch Mark-ham was hit by a pitch. Ward scored on a wild pitch, and James walked, again loading the bases with nobody out. Washington scored on Gladwin's infield out, making it 9-7. Markham scored the eighth run on Dall's infield hit. With the tying run on third, Stenger and Gonzalez flied out to right, preserving the 9-8 victory. Indian River Wollien 110 008 123-8 7 I 008 100 001-9 9 S Cushman, Brumm 43), Evans (4) and R.

Prost wins in Spain, assumes points lead The Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain Alain Prost of France recovered from a slow start Sunday to win the Spanish Grand Prix, his 47th Formula One triumph. It was the third win of the season for Prost and moved him into first place in the drivers standings, ahead of Brazil's Ayrton Senna, who finished second. Prost has 34 points and Senna 32 this season. Auto Racing Michael Schumacher of Germany and Riccardo Patrese of Italy finished third and fourth place, respectively, in Benetton-Fords. Michael Andretti, Senna's McLaren-Ford teammate, was fifth, completing his first race of the season after four dropouts. It was the third Grand Prix on the Circuit of Catalunya, Britain's Nigel Mansell having won the first two in rainy conditions. After brief showers in the morning, Sunday's race was run in bright sun. Prost covered 65 laps, or 191.727 miles, over the 2.95-mile circuit in 1 hour, 32 minutes, 27.685 seconds, an average of 124.415 mph. Prost had the pole position but was beaten to the first turn by Williams-Renault teammate Da mon Hill. -"At the start, I didn't change from first to second gear and I lost a lot of time," Prost said. He went into the lead after 10 laps and held it the rest of the way. FELLOWS WINS TRANS-AM: Ron Fellows of Canada overtook Greg Pickett with 6 laps to go, then held off Scott Sharp at the finish to win his second straight SCCA Trans-Am Tour race at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga. : ' Hammond's pitching, Weiss' doubles key win MARLINS From 1C souvenir at a ballgame, an innocent seventh-inning foul pop behind home. What he was ruled to have done, however, was interfere with New York catcher Charlie O'Brien, who dropped the ball near the stands. After a long conference, home plate umpire Tom Hallion called Walt Weiss, the Marlins batter, out. When the inning ended, the law arrived, taking little Johnny from his seat, the traditional sounds of Take Me Out To The Ballgame playing in the back ground. That was weak, Marlins lett fielder Jeff Conine said. "The little guy didn't even know what he did." Justice at last prevailed, and the child was allowed to return minutes later, a development that was greeted with the most passionate ovation of the day. "There's no place better to win than New York," Florida third baseman and former Met Dave Magadan said. "But there's no ' place worse to lose." And the Mets contributed greatly to this tragicomedy in the fourth inning, when Florida scored three times to open a 6-0 lead. Carr singled, Junior Felix doubled and Benito Santiago walked to load the bases with no outs. The Mets took over from there. Second baseman Tim Bogar had a double play in his glove after fielding an Orestes Destrade ground ball. But his throw to shortstop Tony Fernandez sailed into shallow left field, allowing Carr and Felix to score and Santia go to take third. Destrade was thrown out try ing to advance to second, , but the circus hardly was over. After a ground out, third baseman Lhico Walker fell in pursuit of a Conine slow roller that went from being the third out to being an RBI single. "I don't like to see my friends struggle like this, Magadan said. But I still want to beat them. And the Marlins did, thanks mostly to Weiss, Harvey and start er Chris Hammond. Weiss, who had no extra-base hits since tn pling in his first at-bat of the season, doubled twice and drove in two runs. "I was hoping not to go the entire season without doubling, he said. "That would have been hard to explain." Harvey worked himself into, and then out of, a scary ninth inning by striking out the side for his 10th save in 11 chances. He struck out Howard Johnson when he was the tying run and Eddie Murray when he was the winning run. Harvey's pyrotechnics were the perfect match for the more pedestrian effort of Hammond (2-3), who hadn't won back-to-back games in more than a year. The left-hander allowed one run in seven innings, striking out four and walking none. It all added up to another heaping of calculated boos for the Mets and silent success for the Marlins. "You can say they've lost 2-of-3 to an expansion team," Magadan said, "but we're not playing like an expansion team. Were playing good. It's not just the Mets. We're putting this thing together." 1993 Florida Marlins Schedule Home game Away game 33-Broadcast on WBFS S-Broadcast on Sunshine Network TBS-Turner Broadcasting Station MAY mKm a a. a a (Si 9 ho 33 11 33 12 S 13 33 14 33 15 33 New York Montreal Montreal Montreal St. Louis St. Louis 7:40 7:35 7:35 7:35 8:35 8:05 ilk CUTTERSOUND GOLF & YACHT CLUB SEVEN DAYS GOLF ALL DAY DISC.
