Steve Bedrosian set a club record with his 30th save this season the 100th of his career while Chris James homered twice and Rick Schu added four RBIs for the Phillies. "You can't think about records when you're out there," Bedrosian said. "It's just my job to finish it up."

Bad-hop single, bases-loaded walk lift Wings past Guides FROM PAGE 1D One of the hardest hit balls was a come-backer by Dowell in the third that struck Kucharksi's ' pitching hand and led to his departure in sixth. After Dowell singled, Roman sacrificed. Keith Miller walked and Greg Legg dou- . bled home Dowell to tie the score, 1-1. "I didn't want to come out with a no-hitter in the sixth," Kuchars-ki said. "When he hit the double, I knew I didn't have a lot on it" - Cooper came in and issued an intentional walk to load the bases, then got Greg Jelks to hit into an inning-ending double play. "I got behind in the count and had to come in with a strike," Cooper said. "I didn't want him to extend. I tried to jam him. The pressure's not on me. It's on him. I know what I'm going to throw to him." He pitched through the eighth, allowing one hit and striking out four. While Kucharski and Cooper were shutting down the Guides, Fred Toliver was doing to the same to the Red Wings for VA innings. The Red Wings took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning on Craig Worthington's two-out walk, Traber's single and Scott Ullger's RBI single. Toliver allowed five hits, walked four and struck out four. He escaped trouble with a double play in the sixth, and catcher Roman threw out Rene Gonzales trying to steal second on a hit-and-run play to help him in the eighth. In other IL games: Chiefs 5, Red Sox 2 SYRACUSE Doc Estes had three hits, including his fourth AUTO BAC1FIG Bodine returns to Oswego track to run in feature ., By Tom Skibinakl OSWEGO As Geoff Bodine drove up the road Thursday to ' Oswego Speedway, his head swelled with fond memories. Bodine, who drives on the Winston Cup circuit, hopes to add another lasting memory tonight in the P&C Food MarketsBurritt Chevrolet 150 at Oswego Speedway. The supermodified double-header (twin 75s) begins at 6 p.m. There's a lot of new faces in the division since I raced modi-fieds," Bodine said. "The cars have also changed. They seem to be a lot smaller and much quicker. I'm fortunate that Brian (Ross) has the confidence to let me pick up his ride. I haven't driven a modified since about 1981, so I hope I can remember. I think Brian does, too." Bodine, who began racing modifiers in 1968, will team with 1986 Oswego modified track champion Ross. Bodine, 38, a native of Chemung, will drive the back-up car with Ross entering his familiar red No. 69. Going into tonight's event Bodine has won more than 500 races. He trails the late Richie Evans (13 victories) in Oswego's all-time modified standings with nine victories. His biggest victories at the historic port city track came in the 1979 and 1981 Budweiser Modified 200s. He also experimented with a rear-engine supermodified in 1972. "Early on I thought Indy was the place to be," Bodine said. "I ran about a half season at Oswego in the super until I realized I didn't belong. Once back on the modified scene I decided the Grand National series was next I paid my dues and now I'm lucky to be able to look back and know I made the right decision." Bodine has recorded five victories during his Winston Cup career, with the 1986 Daytona 500 the most recognized. His best finish this season is runner-up in the Good wrench 500 at Rockingham, N.C., and Budweiser 400 at Riverside, Calif. Being familiar with week-to-week changes in track sizes, he feels reduced speeds on Oswego's slightly banked Vs-mile layout will not affect his performance. "Whether you race at 200 miles per hour on a superspeedway or 100 miles per hour on a short track, its basically the same," Bodine said. "The only time you notice a difference is when there's an accident Hitting the wall hurts more at 200." Bodine is scheduled to race today at Michigan in the IROC event before flying back to Oswego for the modified nightcap. DIRT Update Ransomville Speedway hosts the 12th event on the 16-race AplusSkoal Bandit Super DIRT Series Tuesday night Defending series and race winner Brett Hearn of Kinnelon, N.J., leads this year's points chase after winning at Fonda and Orange County Fair speedways during the week.
