4C THE PALM BEACH POST . SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1998 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." Around the horn 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.

S-Hampron, Henry. Thursday's results 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 Henry. "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." LOWLIGHT: 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 Thursday that 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.

"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 sec Today's games Sntngelo 2b May If Lvngslne 3b Fullmer lb White If Batista p Pachot ph-c McGuire rf Stovall cf Chavez c DeHarf p Perez p Urblna p Vidro 2b Reboulet 2b Surholf If Tavarez If-cf Carter rf Palmeiro lb Johns p Forbes 3b Ripken 3b Rosarioc Davis ph Hammonds cf Guillen ph-lf Hoilesc Orosco p Rhodes p Bordlckss Erlckson p Minor lb 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 1000 Houston vs. Florida at Melbourne, 1:0$ p.m. Montreal vs. St. Louis (ss) at Jupiter, 1:05 p.m. Boston vs. Minnesota at Fort Myers, 1 :05 p.m. Kansas City vs. Detroit at Lakeland, 1:05 p.m. Philadelphia vs. Toronto at Dunedin, 1:05 p.m. Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh at Bradenton, 1:05 p.m. Cleveland at Atlanta, 1:10 p.m. New York Mets vs. Baltimore at Fort Lauderdale, 2:10 D.m.

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. "He started out throwing too many off-speed pitches," Mets manager Bobby Valentine said. "Then he went to his hard stuff and pitched well." Alicea 3b Totals between starts because of soreness in his right shoulder. As a precaution, he will miss his scheduled start tonight against Tampa Bay but plans on starting Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers in St. Louis. Stottlemyre sharp: Opening-day starter Todd Stottlemyre was the first St Louis pitcher to go seven innings this spring. He lowt ered his ERA from 5.65 to 2.80 Thursday with seven scoreless innings against Montreal at Roger Dean Sta: dium. Spotlight on basketball: The Cardinals' opening-day ceremonies Tuesday against the Dodgers will fea,-ture a first pitch from representatives of the only three title-winning basketball teams in St. Louis history Nancy Fahey, coach of the 1998 NCAA Division III national champion Washington University Lady Bears, and Easy Ed Macauley, who played for the 1948 NIT champion St. Louis University Billikens and the 1958 NBA champion St Louis Hawks. Big sticks: Royce Clayton went 2-for-2 for the Cardinals, raising his average to .365. John Mabry's 2-for-2 night lifted his average to .271. ... Rich Becker went 2-for-4 for the Mets. He's hitting .355 this spring. Rey Ordonez went 2-for-3, raising his average to .315. Carlos Baerga's 2-for-3 effort lifted his average to .269. Bernard Gilkey (l-for-2) is batting .306. Meacham stays perfect: Right-hander Rusty Meacham of Palm City, assigned to the Cardinals' minor-league camp last week, pitched 2 scoreless innings Friday night. Meacham, who has allowed only three ba-serunners this spring, struck out three and gave up two hits Matt Franco's pinch-hit single in the fifth and an infield hit by Craig Paquette in the sixth. The former Martin County High School and Indian River Community College pitcher has an ERA of 0.00, with three hits and five strikeouts in 4'A innings.
