jM FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1997 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYOFFS THE SALINA JOURNAL AMBBCAN LEAGUE CHAMPWNSW SffiEs Baltimore vs. Cleveland (Fox) Game 2: Cleveland 5, Baltimore 4, series tied 1-1 Game 3: Saturday: Baltimore (Mussina 158) at Cleveland (Hershiser 14-6), 3:15 p.m. Grissom's blow sinks O's By The Associated Press BALTIMORE — Check the temperature and the Scoreboard, this Indian summer isn't over yet. Marquis Grissom hit a three- run homer in the eighth inning off Armando Benitez on Thursday night, giv- M j_ ing the Cleve- •= ;^ **»•" land Indians a 5- Cleveland 5 4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in Game Baltimore 2 of the AL championship series. , With the Indians trailing 4-2 in the eighth and on the verge of falling behind 2-0 in the best-of-7 series, Grissom hit a shot into the Orioles' bullpen that stunned the Camden Yards crowd and surely sent living rooms and bars in Ohio into a frenzy. Cleveland, which came back from a 2-1 deficit to beat the defending World Series champion New York Yankees in the opening round, benefited from two walks and a controversial call in the eighth that set up Grissom's shot. Benitez struck out pinch-hitter Jeff Branson to open the inning before walking Sandy Alomar. He then struck out Tony Fernandez and appeared to get pinch-hitter Jim Thome as well on a 3-2 pitch. Thome checked his swing on the pitch and although TV replays showed his bat had crossed the plate, he was awarded first base. Grissom, who went 3-for-4, then drove a 1-1 pitch to the deepest part of the ballpark, bringing the Indians out of the dugout. In last year's playoffs, Benitez gave up a tie-breaking grand slam to Albert Belle in Cleveland's 9-4 win in Game 3. Cleveland's Mike Jackson got two outs in the eighth and Jose Mesa pitched the ninth for the save. Following a travel day Friday, the series will resume at Jacobs Field on Saturday. The Orioles will send ace Mike Mussina to the mound against Orel Hershiser. Until Grissom's dramatic shot, it appeared Baltimore's new shortstop and its old one would push the Orioles a little closer to the World Series. Mike Bordick snapped a sixth- inning tie with a two-run single, and Cal Ripken hit a two-run homer — his first career postseason shot — as the Orioles took a 42 lead into the eighth and turned it over to their brilliant bullpen, which was 83-4 when protecting leads after the seventh inning this year. Manny Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the first inning for Cleveland. With the score tied 2-2 in the sixth, the Orioles loaded the bases against starter Charles Nagy on two fielder's choices and a walk. Bordick, whose offseason acquisition as a free agent finally moved Ripken from shortstop to third base, battled Nagy to a full count before lining an opposite- field single to right, scoring both runners. NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPWNSHP SEMES Atlanta vs. Rorlda (NBC) Game 2: Atlanta 7, Florida 1, series tied 1-1. Game 3: Today; Atlanta (Smoltz 1512) at Florida (Saunders 4-6), 7:07 p.m. Fernandez's season ove£ By BEN WALKER The Associated Press MIAMI — Alex Fernandez hoped the exam would reveal only a sore shoulder. Instead, he was shaken by the most dreaded words a pitcher can hear: His rotator cuff is totally torn, his postseason is over, his career could be finished. The Florida Marlins' plans for the NL championship series were scrambled Thursday with the shocking news that Fernandez, finishing up the first season of a $35 million, five-year contract, was done for the foreseeable future. "It could be probably a full season, a year or a year and a half," he said, his voice cracking with emotion. "Hopefully it's less than the prognosis." But there also was the possibility — though no one dared say so — that the once-durable ace could be sidelined much Iqnger, maybe forever. An MRI on Thursday revealed a full thickness tear of the right rotator cuff, though it was not clear when the injury occurred. The team said he would soon have surgery. "Our guys are disappointed, heartbroken to an extent," Marlins manager Jim Leyland said. Fernandez, who felt pain in lasting just 2% innings Wednesday in a 7-1 loss to Atlanta that evened the playoffs at 1-all, was scheduled to start Game 6, if necessary. Rookie Livan Hernandez will pitch in his place. Fernandez, a 17-game winner, beat San Francisco last week to complete Florida's sweep in the division series. Hernandez last won on Aug. 31. The NLCS resumes tonight with Game 3 at Pro Player Stadium. A record crowd of 55,000 is expected to turn out for the first postseason game in Florida, and Fernandez will be in the dugout to cheer on his team. Under baseball rules, the Marlins are not allowed to replace Fer- nandez's spot on the roster in this series. They would be permitted to add a player if they reaclr the World Series. .,., "I feel real bad for the organization and team," said Fernandez, his arm held by his wife, Lourdes, at one point in a news conference. "I feel sometimes I let the team down, now that I'm not there for Game 6." Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, friends with Fernandez since they were high school rivals in South Florida, was saddened. "You play this game to get,,a chance to get to the playoffs, and World Series, and he was in a.good situation here," Jones said. "You never know how many opportunities you'll get." ,.,,; This was not the first time a serious, out-of-nowhere injury came in the postseason. , More recently, Vince Colemajn missed the 1985 World Series aft?r an automatic tarpaulin rolled over his leg during the NL playoffs,in St. Louis. „ , TO RESPOND TO ADS, CALLs 1-9OO-737-116O $2.19/minute, you must be at least 18 years of age.
