t t v t- t T w r w- 4C THE PALM BEACH POST SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1998 Around the horn Spotlight's on... Donnle Sadler, Red Sox Sadler, a prospect with no major-league experience, is expected to fill in at second until Mark Lemke (signed Thursday) is ready. Sadler, hitting .333 this spring, made a nice play Friday on a grounder behind first baseman Mo Vaughn to catch a runner at third. "He's got what it takes," Vaughn said. "He plays hard and with confidence." The price of success? Baseball's average ticket price rose 10 percent this season, to $13.60, and the Red Sox have the highest average at $20.63. Boston's average is followed by : the Yankees at $20.51, Baltimore ($19.77), Cleveland ($17.35), and Atlanta ($17.18). The Twins, who may be playing their final season in Minneapolis, have the lowest average at $8.22, unchanged from 1997. A lot of people say we are going to finish last -then so be it. There will be no pressure. If one team finishes behind us in the standings, that will be a victory. FELIPE ALOU, Expos manager.

Marlins report HIGHLIGHT: Third baseman Josh Booty hit a three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning Friday to give the Marlins a 10-8 comeback victory over the Houston Astros in Kissimmee. Booty hit a 1-2 slider from reliever Doug Heniy. "Not a lot of guys hit homers on breaking pitches with two strikes," Booty said. "Something I've been working on is choking up a little bit with two strikes, and you see what happens." LOWUGHT: Starting pitcher Felix Heredia gave up five runs on five hits and three walks in five innings in his final spring start. Heredia, who will start Wednesday night at Pro Player Stadium against the Cubs, was 1-3 this spring with a 7.43 ERA. "He was all right," Marlins manager Jim Leyland said. "His control is still not sharp, and he's still throwing too many bad pitches, but he threw better today." PROSPECT WATCH: Left-handed reliever Vic Darens-bourg, who had struggled most of the spring, pitched a perfect ninth that included two strikeouts. Darens-, bourg said finding out ThursdayMhat he'd made the . team took a lot of pressure off him and made it easier to pitch. QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Gabe Gonzalez, I think he called my mother." Leyland, still marveling at how excited the reliever was to make the team. Dan Graziano E-Gulierrez. DP-Florlda 2. LOB-Florlda 9, Houston 5. 2B-Alou, Booty. 3B Kotsoy, Hidalgo.

The Florida Marlins on Friday signed left-hander Chris Hammond to a minor-league contract. Marlins notes Yes, the same Chris Hammond who pitched for the Marlins from 1993-96 and still ranks among the team's career leaders in almost every pitching category. The Kansas City Royals waived him Monday, and the Marlins signed him Friday to pitch for their Class AAA team in Charlotte, N.C. "We really have nothing to lose," Marlins General Manager Dave Dombrowski said. "We don't have a lot of depth of guys who are ready to pitch at the big-league level, so you go ahead and add somebody like him, and see what happens." Hammond was 29-30 with a 4.46 ERA in the Marlins' first four years, but they released him after a disappointing 1996 season, and he signed with the Boston Red Sox. He went 3-4, 5.29 in 29 appearances (eight starts) for Boston in 1997, but he had surgery at the All-Star break to remove bone fragments from his left elbow and didn't pitch in the second half of the season. Dombrowski said Hammond, 32, will join the starting rotation in Charlotte, with an outside chance of joining the big-league team later. "I'm not looking at it as coming back into the Marlins' organization," Hammond said Friday from his home in Fort Lauderdale. "I was just looking to get on a Triple-A team, get my arm strength back up and go from there. I'm just glad Dave brhbl 2 110 2 120 3 110 10 10 4 112 4 0 12 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1000 2 0 0 0 4 0 2 0 30 10 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1000 Grdzlnek ss Mordecai ss Sntngelo 2b May If Lvngstne 3b Fullmer lb White If Batista p Pachot ph-c McGuire rf Stovall cf Chavez c DeHart p Perez p Urbina p Vidro 2b 4 0 0 0 3 0 2 0 1000 40 10 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 10 10 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 10 10 2 0 00 20 10 2 00 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 1000 Reboulet 2b Surhoff If Tavarez If-cf Carter rf Palmeiro lb Johns p Forbes 3b Ripken 3b Rosario c Davis ph Hammonds cf Guillen ph-lf Holies c Orosco p Rhodes p Bordick ss Erickson p Minor lb 021 101 110 -7 000 103 14x -1 Colorado Seattle Today's games E-Cora.

LUCIE Left-hander Brian Bohanon overcame a horrendous start Friday night and pitched the New York Mets to a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Bohanon, the No. 5 starter in the Mets' rotation, gave up six hits and three runs in the first two innings but pitched three hitless innings and left the game with a 6-3 lead at Thomas J. White Stadium. "It looked like I was going to be in for a long night," said Bohanon, who was 6-4 with a 3.82 ERA for the Mets last season. "I didn't spot my fastball and was leaving breaking pitches up they could hit. But I made a quick adjustment and felt pretty good the last three innings." After Bohanon struck out Gary Gaetti to start the fourth, the Cardinals loaded the bases on a hit batter, an error and a walk, but the big left-hander struck out De-lino DeShields and Mark McGwire to end the inning.
