D2? Asbury Park PressThursday, May 18, 1989 It will be Brookdale arms vs. Allegany bats By TONY GRAHAM Press Staff Writer BROOKDALE COMMUNITY College baseball coach Paul Mac-Laughlin is banking on his pitching to neutralize heavy-hitting Allegany Community College of Cumberland, Md. The Trojans (38-2), who invade Brookdale (37-9) in a best-of-three Mid-East District Tournament beginning with a doubleheader at noon tomorrow, bring along a .400 team batting average embellished by a school-record 73 home runs. A Game Three, if necessary, would be played at Brookdale at noon Saturday. The tournament winner advances to the National Junior College Athletic Association World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. MacLaughlin will look to right handers Scott Stevens (9-3, 1.57 ERA) and Gene Mirabella (7-2, 1.23) tomorrow as Brookdale attempts to return to the World Series for a second consecutive year and for the fifth time since 1979. Left-hander Jason Donnelly (6-0, 2.34 ERA) is expected to be Mac-Laughlin's choice if a third game is needed. Stevens, with 1 1 1 strikeouts in 98 innings, needs only three strikeouts to break John Montefusco's single-season record set in 1972. "I don't anticipate high-scoring games," said MacLaughlin. Brookdale got shutouts from Stevens, Mirabella and Donnelly in the Region 19 championships, while the only two runs Stevens surrendered in his second start of the tournament were unearned. The tournament's only slugfest, a 15-13 Brookdale win over Ocean County College, was played on a wet field with short fences. Allegany defeated Brookdale in two straight games in Maryland in the '84 Mid-East event to gain its only World Series berth. "We've had a lot of blowouts, and we've come back to win," said Allegany assistant coach Chris Ruppen-kamp. "In the region tournament, we had to come from behind all three games, so I guess it's a sign of maturity from a sophomore team." Allegany stopped Maryland foes Catonsville, 3-1, Cecil, 8-1, and Ha-gerstown, 14-7, to win a rain-abbreviated Region 20 event Region offi-cials awarded Allegany the championship after steady rains backed up so many losers' bracket games that continuing the tournament was not feasible. Allegany was ranked No. 1 1 in last week's final regular-season JUCO Poll, a rating Brookdale had enjoyed until being displaced by County College of Morris late in the season. Brookdale then topped Morris to win the Region 19 title. "Last year we were ranked nationally all year, got to the region tournament and kind of choked up a little bit because they were freshmen," said Ruppenkamp. "This year, they kind of avenged themselves." Allegany, which earlier this season won 28 consecutive games, is led at the plate by left fielder Dennis Sweeney (.528, nine HR, 37 RBI), shortstop A.B. Brown (.460, 11 HR, 46 RBI), third baseman Pat Takitch (.458, 32 RBI), second baseman Jim Krevuch (.398, 13 HR, 47 RBI) and first baseman Scott Johnson (.378, 16 HR, 55 RBI). Gavin Osteen (7-1, 91 strikeouts in 55 innings, 2.24 ERA), son of former major leaguer Claude Osteen, is expected to pitch Game One for Allegany. "He has a fastball in the high 80s and has a good breaking pitch, too," said Ruppenkamp. Others who may see action this weekend are Brett Misavage (8-1, 60 strikeouts in 60 innings, 2.25 ERA), Tim Gingrich (7-0), Sweeney (2-1) and relief specialist Ed Kokosko (6-0). "Misavage doesn't have the fastball Osteen does, but is right around the plate ... has good control," said Ruppenkamp. Brookdale is batting .377 as a team, but has hit only 35 home runs. Nine were hit by Rich Palumbo, the Blues RBI leader (71). Unfortunately, Palumbo is out for the season after suffering a broken wrist in an auto accident Sunday night. Dennis McCaffery (.452, 10 HR, 58 RBI) is the team's only other major power threat Sean Ennis (.431) will fill in for Palumbo, while Chris DeDomenico (.382), Ed Scott (.379, five HR, 37 RBI) and Joe Cilea (.360, 37 RBI) are other Brookdale batting leaders. "We've kind of adjusted the way we're trying to play the game to not having that type of (long ball) power," said MacLaughlin. "We're -going more to hit and run, bunting , and things like that. It's a little differ-; ent than the way we usually play. "We move people along and we; try to get one run at a time. With a: good pitching staff who's not going to . give up a lot of runs, I think in big games one or two runs make a big difference. So, rather than going for-the big innings we're trying to get one or two at a time. But I think on our-field on a nice day we're capable of. hitting some home runs." ; On the mound MacLaughlin,: may also call on Dan Husar (3-1),, Dan Donovan (4-2) and relief pitcher Rob Hartman (4-2). . . . Mirabella has. struck out 87 in 80 innings and; Donnelly 49 in 50 innings. Scoreboard ... 1 . klAl a 1 NBA GOLF FUTURES CHATTAH0OCA CLASSIC . CHATTANOOGA, Tews.

Much sport was made of the Great One's move to Los Angeles hockey Siberia and Los Angeles' initial lack of interest in hockey. Art imitated life in one skit in which Gretzky was literally trapped in the locker room after a game amid a crush of celebrities, each of whom offered a bit of helpful advice. Among the hints: Skate faster, make the goaltender's stick bigger and place a sheet of plywood in the goal mouth. No sportswriters could get into the locker room, what with the all the famous celebs. Priorities. Add Gretzky Gretzky, in various skits, was attacked by a giant fish, had his wife real-life actress Janet Jones ravished by another man, was satirized by cable TV goons and was forced to endure a lunatic talk show host. In perhaps his bravest moment, Gretzky performed a rock V roll number, a send-up of old Elvis movies. All in all, as Gretzky said in the show's opening monologue, as an actor . . . he's a great hockey player. Wish you were here Willie Randolph says that he's happy to be a Dodger but that a part of him misses being a Yankee. According to Claire Smith of The Hartford Courant, Randolph "Was living the 'Brooklyn kid makes good' lifestyle, and he loved it, playing all but 30 of his 1,724 major league games until this season, proudly, as a Yankee. "Randolph does not miss the Yankees' turmoil. He knew he never would. 'I just miss being home,' Randolph said. 'I miss my family and friends, the people in my corner.' So he sits in the apartment in Los Angeles, counts the days until school ends, until his wife, Gretchen, daughters Taniesha, Chantre and Ciara and son, Andre, join him in California. " 'But the schedule hasn't been too kind,' he said with a smile. 'By the time they get there, we go on the road for most of July.' "But at least the family will be there. Which is better than now. Even though Randolph braced for life 3,000 miles from home, he was not prepared. " 'You can't even describe how tough that can be,' he said. There are no kids jumping on your chest. Without the family around, I usually just go from the apartment to the ballpark, concentrate on baseball.' " Just concentrate on baseball. We sympathize. Death Wish I A few years ago, John McKay, who was then coaching in the National Football League at Tampa, was asked after a loss K 1 ) "l IM I Mi '$; , -J Associated Press SPACE BALL Former major league pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee made his debut in left field Tuesday for the Mavericks, members of the Capitol Men's Softball League in Montpelier, Vt. Lee went two-for-four. what he thought about his team's execution. McKay said, "I think it's a hell of a good idea." Proceed slowly The Seattle SuperSonics lost ingloriously in the playoffs. The SuperSonics should back the truck to up the stadium and clean house. Right? Probably not. It may be that the SuperSonics aren't historians, but they may remember the case of the Houston Rockets, who beat the Lakers 4-1 in the 1986 Western Conference finals. Akeem Olajuwon, Ralph Sampson, Robert Reid, Lewis Lloyd, Rodney McCray, Jim Peterson and Mitchell Wiggins were the stars of that Rockets' team, coached by Bill Fitch: Only Olajuwon remains.
