Del Rto, T«XM NEWS-HERALD. Thurutoy. July a? r im_« Yankees losing skid continues By The Aseoclated Press George Steinbrenner and Dallas Green now know what most of baseball realized last winter: the Yankees' pitching stinks. New York took a 2-0 lead against Cleveland Wednesday night. After falling being 6-2, the Yankees took a 7-6 lead. Didn't matter. The bullpen got involved and Cleveland won 8-7 for New York's eighth loss in nine games. "I don't know where the comedy of errors begins and ends," Green said, "but it sure surfaced in that inning. You can't give major-league players that many outs and not expect to get the loss." After Luis Polonia's two-run homer gave the Yankees a 7-6 lead in the top of the eighth, Lee Guetterman, 2-5, allowed a leadoff single to Jerry Browne in the bottom half. Felix Fermin bunted and Guetterman's throw sailed 20 feet over first base and rolled down the right-field line as the runners went to second and third. Dion James popped out and Joe Carter was walked to load the bases. Pete O'Brien then popped the ball down the left-field line and Polonia allowed it to drop for a double. O'Brien had three hits and drove in four runs. "All he has to do it catch the ball," Green said of Polonia. "I expect outfielders who are paid to play to catch the baseball. He didn't play O'Brien's ball right in the fifth, either. It cost us two more runs." In other games, Oakland beat California 9-5, Minnesota beat Baltimore 5-4, Chicago beat Seattle 5-3, Kansas City beat Boston 7-4, Texas beat Toronto 11-1 and Milwaukee beat Detroit 3-2. Doug Jones, 4-5, got the victory despite allowing Polonia's eight- inning homer. The Yankees' bullpen is 0-5 since July 15 with an 11.88 earned-run average. Athletics 9, Angels 5 Matt Young, 1-3, retired one batter for his first victory since July 19, 1987. With the score tied 5-5, Mark McGwire and Dave Henderson started the eighth with singles off Mike Witt, 5-5. Rich Monteleone struck out Jose Canseco but Ron Hassey's single scored pinch- runner Stan Javier. Tony Phillips walked, loading the bases, and Mike Gallego hit an RBI groundout. Rickey Henderson and Carney Lansford added RBI singles. Twins 5, Orioles 4 Doug Baker singled in the winning run in the ninth and Kent Hrbek homered twice. Jeff Reardon, 3-2, got his first victory since June 26. In the ninth, Tim Laudner and Al Newman hit one-out singles off Mark Williamson, 6-3, Randy Bush was walked intentionally and Baker lined a 1-1 pitch to right. White Sox 5, Mariners 3 Ozzie Guillen stretched his hitting streak to 16 games with a pair of run-scoring singles. Greg Hibbard, 2-2, allowed three hits and struck out five in 6 2-3 innings and Bobby Thigpen got five outs for his 21st save. Bill Swift, 6-3, lost his fifth consecutive decision against Chicago since Oct. 3,1985, giving up six hits and three runs in six innings. Royals 7, Red Sox 4 Bret Saberhagen, 10-5, won for the seventh time in eight decisions, allowing nine hits and four runs in 6 2-3 innings, walking five and striking out four. Willie Wilson had four hits as visiting Kansas City rallied from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits, Jeff Montgomery pitched 2 1-3 innings for his fifth save as the Royals stopped a three-game losing streak. Joe Price, 1-5, relieved Boston starter Eric Hetzel in the fifth and Price allowed three hits and two runs. Rangers 11, Blue Jays 1 Julio Franco drove in three runs to take over the American League lead in RBIs and the Texas got 16 hits. Rookie Kevin Brown, 9-6, allowed seven hits in eighth innings. Mike Flanagan, 6-7, lost, allowing six runs and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings. Brewers 3, Tigers 2 Robin Yount hit a two-run homer in the first to extend his hitting streak to 16 games and walked with the bases loaded in the eighth off Edwin Nunez, 1-2, to force in the go-ahead run. Teddy Higuera, 5-4, allowed three hits in eight innings, walking four and striking out four. Dan Plesac pitched the ninth to earn his 24th save in 29 opportunities. Cincinnati loses tenth straight By DICK BRINSTER AP Sports Writer With the Cincinnati Reds one defeat short of matching a 23-year-old low-water mark, Manager Pete Rose says there's nothing the team can do but keep playing — and hoping. The Reds lost their 10th consecutive game Wednesday night, a 5-3 defeat by San Diego. The Reds can tie a 1966 mark of futility with a loss to' the Padres today. Is there anything the Reds can do to changes their fortunes? "That's the same question we've asked each other the last seven or eight days," Rose said. "Just keep playing, that's all you can do." Elsewhere in the National League, it was Houston 6, Los Angeles 2; Philadelphia 4, Montreal 3; Atlanta 5, San Francisco 4; Pittsburgh 3, New York 2, and St. Louis 2, Chicago 0. Cincinnati's slump is its worst since an 11-game slide from June 29 to July 9, 1966. The Reds, beset by injuries, suffered again from a lack of offense. They managed only four hits. "(John) Franco gets beat on a check swing (by Mike Pagliarulo Diablos defeat Jackson By The Associated Press Tim Mclntosh slugged a grand slam homer to lead the El Paso Diablos to a 6-5 Texas League baseball victory over the Jackson Mets. In other Texas League games Thursday night, Snreveport defeated Midland, 8-5, in 11 innings, and Arkansas defeated San Antonio, 5-1. Mclntosh had been hitless in 11 at-bats against Jackson during the series before his grand slam homer that sparked a five-run sixth inning for El Paso. It was Mclntosh's 12th home run of the season, and the first grand slam of his professional career. Angelo Cuevas had a two-run homer for the Mets. Mark Owens had a home run in the llth inning to give the Shreveport Captains an 8-5 victory over the Midland Angels Otto Gonzalez hit a homer for Midland to tie the game in the ninth and send it into extra innings. The winning pitcher was Doug Robertson, 2-2. The loser was David Graybill, 2-3 Pitcher Mike Perez halted a late rally by the San Antonio Missions as the Arkansas Travelers defeated San Antonio 5-1. Arkansas scored its first run in the fourth after Geronimo Pena doubled and then was knocked in by Rod Brewer's single. The Travelers picked up another run in the seventh when Ray Lankford tripled and scored on an infield ground-out by Jesus Mende*. in the eighth inning) and an infield ground ball," Rose said. "Things are tough. But if you score runs, you overcome things like that." With the score tied 3-3, Pagliarulo singled Marvell Wynne to third. Luis Salazar followed with an infield hit that proved decisive. Dennis Rasmussen allowed three hits over 6 1-3 innings before yielding to Mark Grant, 4-1, who pitched 2 2-3 innings. Mark Davis earned his 25th save. Relief ace Franco, 2-4, lost. Phillies 4, Expos 3 Down to its final strike, Philadelphia ended a six-game losing streak on a two-run single by Randy Ready off bullpen ace Tim Burke. Bob Dernier led off the ninth inning against Zane Smith, 1-13, with a grounder that was booted by third baseman Tim Wallach. Von Hayes followed with a ground-rule double. Burke, who has 21 saves in 27 opportunites, came on to retire Ricky Jordan on a fly ball before Ready lined a 1-2 pitch to left. Jeff Parrett, 7-3, earned the victory and Roger McDowell got his llth save. Braves 5, Giants 4 Dale Murphy, with just two hits in 30 lifetime at-bats against Scott Garrelts, brought the Braves back from a 3-0 deficit in the sixth inning with a three-run homer. He added a tie-breaking sacrifice fly against Steve Bedrosian, 2-5, in a two-run eighth. Joe Soever, 4-3, pitched 1 2-3 innings of scoreless relief. Kevin Mitchell, who leads the majors with 88 RBIs, drove in a run as the Giants took a 3-0 lead in the first against Marty Clary. Pirates 3, Mets 2 John Smiley pitched a three- hitter to beat New York for the sixth time in seven career decisions. He also drove in a run. Barry Bonds led the Pittsburgh attack with two RBIs. Smiley, 9-5, pitched five hitless innings before Kevin Elster led off the sixth with his third home run. Mark Carreon hit his major league-leading third pinch-hit homer — his fourth overall — in the eighth. Cardinals 2, Cubs 0 Vince Coleman had both RBIs and stole three bases, and Jose DeLeon extended his streak of scoreless innings to 19 for St. Louis. Jose Oquendo's hitting streak, the longest in the majors this season, ended at 23 games. He was O-for-3, and was left in the on-deck circle in the eighth inning. Coleman drove in Terry Pendleton both times and stole his 48th, 49th and 50th consecutive bases. Coleman, who leads the majors in steals with 44 this season, has not been thrown out since last year.
