S.r of 15 APR 27.1953;" SPORTS ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH THURSDAY, APRIL 27. 1 989 5D ft EZZ CARDINALS REPORT Willie McGee wasn't in the starting lineup again Wednesday night. "That s 21 days since ho started," manager Whitey Herzog said. JvlcGee isn't on the disabled list, and he is available for pinch-hitting and pinch-running chores. But he hasn't started since the second game of the season, on April 5, in New York. The home run he hit off Bob Ojeda that day was his first batting 'fighthanded since 1987. "I think he's close, but I just talked to . the trainer, and he says it s still sore," Herzog said. ',, McGee is bothered by sore muscles on his left side. He has missed 15 .qpnsecutive starts. - Lefthander Greg Mathews, rehabilitating an elbow injury, was scheduled to start in Louisville Wednesday' ight. But, in the warmups, he felt pain n)is injured elbow and was scratched. Tom Brunansky went into Wednes-.dy night's game hitless in 24 consecu-; five at-bats. Bruno had been rested for three days and sat out two games, j . Herzog was asked if he planned to let Brunansky play through his slump. ""I'd like to do that, butldon'twantto tbury him," Herzog said. "And I'd like to ;win some games. i - r thought he swung the bat better last night against a tough righthander l(Don Robinson). But if he gets back to where he's -really pressing again, I might let some-tody else play especially if Willie icomes back." -But Brunansky broke the slump with laharp single that drove in the Cardinals' third run in the sixth inning Wednesday night. Herzog spoke to Anheuser-Busch wholesalers at the Marriott Pavilion otel on Wednesday. -lltJHe told them he had accepted the -speaking engagement in the spring ""when Inad already lost 25 percent of my starting lineup and 40 percent of my parting pitching. I thought I might be 'sellingbeer by this date. ' f,,,. The one pitch that rookie Ken Hill would like to nave back from Tuesday flight's 4-0 loss to the Giants was a fastball at the knees to Will Clark in the thfrd inning. 1 Clark drilled it to center field, scoring otte run and setting up another. The -Giants scored three runs on five hits in the third, and Hill limited them to only eie hit In the six other innings he patched. "1 had him 0-2," Hill said. "I just saw film of it. It wasn't a bad pitch, but dark is a good fastball hitter, and if you get it In the zone he'll hit it." SfHill said the pitch had caught some of the plate on the outside corner. If he could do it over, he said, he would throw the "same pitch but up and in." t'l made a couple of mistakes in the game," he said. "You can get away with those in the minor leagues, but not "Except for one inning, I liked the game." Hill, 23, was called up from Louisville fast Thursday and has started two fames. He is 1-1. i .. John Costello was not charged with a run last season at Busch Stadium. The righthander allowed his first run at home on Tuesday night, and he wasn't even in the game when the run scored. ftn the San Francisco ninth, Costello walked three men, one of whom was thrown out trying to steal. " " But Ken Dayley came in and allowed a single to center by Brett Butler. The rrjti belonged in Costello's column. .'Z.

Denver 3, Louisville 2 LaVel Freeman hit his first home run of ihe season in the ninth inning to give . Denver a victory over the Redbirds in American Association action Wednes-day.night In Louisville, Ky. Freeman led off the ninth with his homer over the right-field wall off losing pitcher Matt Kinier (0-3). Denver (9-10) had taken a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI single by Darryel Walters. Louisville (8-12) tied the game In the fifth on a sacrifice fly by Randall Byers. Denver went up 2-1 in the sixth on an RBI single by Donnie Scott, but Louisville answered when Mike Fitzgerald scored on an error by Denver left fielder Greg Vaughn. Tony Fessas (1:1) got the victory, while Jay Aldrich earned his third save. Cards 3 From page one hit into a game-ending double play. DeLeon (4-1) allowed five hits and struck out seven. He walked only the one batter. A home-run to leadoff batter Butler in the first inning was the only damage the Giants could do. "I didn't feel like I had a good fastball to begin with," DeLeon said. "The second one I threw went out of the park." Actually, the ball hit the yellow line on the right-field wall and bounced over for the home run. What worked well for him, DeLeon said, was his forkball and his split-fingered fastball. Giants manager Roger Craig was just wild about the way DeLeon pitched,. He said DeLeon has "the best curveball in the league, along with (Orel) Hershiser." Asked if it were DeLeon's pitching or his team's lack of bitting, Craig said, "Most of the time, a manager would say it's a little bit of both. But in this case, it was mostly him." DeLeon said he wasn't pressing more just because Joe Magrane, Danny Cox and Greg Mathews are unavailable. "Hopefully, Joe Magrane will come back soon," DeLeon said. "We do need some help in our starting pitching, and I want to pitch this way as long as I can." Asked what the difference is now from the way he was a few years ago when he had a losing record, DeLeon said, "Now I think I'm a pitcher, not a thrower. Befere I wanted to strike out everybody and I threw a hundred pitches in five innings." DeLeon's smile was wide after the victory, but not as big as that of Brunansky. Equipment manager Buddy Bates had iced down a couple of bottles of champagne and had them ready for Bruno at game's end. Brunansky had been benched for two games over the weekend, and he went into Wednesday night's game without a hit in his last 24 at-bats. He had gone hitless in his last seven games. He grounded out on a hard shot in the second, and then hit into a double play in the fourth before getting his big hit in the sixth. Coleman led off with a bunt that pitcher Kelly Downs couldn't field and beat it out After Ozzie Smith struck out, Terry Pendleton got the game-winning hit with a double to right-center. Coleman was running oh the pitch and scored. Then the Giants walked Milt Thompson, thereby ending his 15-game hitting streak, to get to Bruno. This time, Brunansky lashed a hard shot to left for an RBI single, scoring Pendleton. "There's a lot of pressure off after getting the hit," Brunansky said. "But I'm just happy to help the ballclub win." He said he didn't know the magnitude of the hitless streak, but "it seemed like an eternity" between at-bats. "And then they went so fast," he added. The game also featured one of the best defensive plays that will be seen all season. In the first, Giants left fielder Mitchell went racing into foul territory for a towering drive down the line by Smith. He went too far, and the windi seemed to bring the ball back toward the foul line. Mitchell, originally a third base-! man, reached back with his bare hand j and made the catch. ! "I was running as hard as I could," Mitchell said, "and the ball can back j on me. All I could do was stick out by i hand, and there it was. It was a foot-. ball instinct" , j The loss for San Francisco knocked the Giants out of first place for the ' first time since April 14. Cincinnati ; now is in first in the National League' Western Division. The victory for the Cardinals evened their record at 9-9. The two teams will meet again today at 12:35 p.m. with Scott Garrelts (2-0) going for the Giants against Scott Terry (2-1). virnii an am mmm 50,000-mile wearout warranty . . .
