Reno Gazette-Journal Saturday, April 4, 1987 3B Florida woman wins mogul title Giants capsule By Paul BaumanGazette-Journal It took awhile, but Hayley Wolff finally got motivated Friday. The transformation came between her two mogul runs in the United States Ski Association Freestyle Championships at Squaw Valley USA. "The first run, I was very lackadaisical . . . not very psyched," said Wolff, who already had clinched a place on next year's U.S. team. "I had much more adrenalin for the second run, and it was obvious in my skiing." Wolff, 24, of North Miami Beach, Fla., recorded a score of 37.73 on her second run to win her first national title after seven years on the U.S. freestyle ski team. Only the highest score1 counts in the standings. Liz Mclntyre of Lyme, N.H., finished second at 36.73, and Betsy Reid of Peabody, Mass., was third at 33.62. The event consists of carefully calculated high-speed turns on a slope with many moguls (large mounds of snow). Nelson Carmichael of Steamboat Springs, Colo., won the men's really psyched for the second run regardless of the scoring." Wolff slipped to sixth in the Grand Prix in 1986-87 after finishing second, second and first in the previous three years. "I lost motivation halfway through the season," she said. "A few times, I didn't like the way I was scored. I lost my psych. I figured, 'Why ski well if I'm not going to be scored well?' " Carmichael, 21, also won the national moguls title in 1985 at Winter Park, Colo. He finished sixth on this season's Grand Prix, third among Americans behind Cooper Schell (third) and Desovich (fourth). Schell took a fall earlier in the week and pulled out of the event. Like Wolff, Carmichael already had clinched a place on next year's team before the nationals. "I was just competing against myself, to see how well I could ski," Carmichael said. "It's more relaxed than the World Cup (Grand Prix), where they cut the field to 16 after the first run. Then the top 16 go again. Here, it's the best of two, so you can put it on the line both times." Magic touch Washington's lead to 119-116. MAVERICKS 136, WARRIORS 116 at Dallas Rolando Blackman scored 33 points to help give Dallas its first 50-victory season in their seven-year history. NUGGETS 116, SPURS 106 at San Antonio Alex English scored 29 points, leading Denver to a victory that strengthened the Nuggets' hold on the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. SUNS 112, JAZZ 98 at Phoenix Phoenix Suns forward Larry Nance scored 28 points and Mike Sanders came off the bench to add 18 as the Suns kept their slim NBA playoff hopes alive. NETS 113, SIXERS 109 at East Rutherford, N.J. Orlando Woolridge scored five of his game-high 33 points in the closing moments, lifting the New Jersey Nets. The victory, New Jersey's third in the last four games, spoiled Julius Erving's last appearance at the Brendan Byrne Arena. Erving, who played three seasons with the Nets when they were In the American Basketball Association, had his Nets uniform number retired . Wire service reports Skiing moguls with a score of 42.78 on his first run. Trailing Carmichael were Scott Ogren of Salt Lake City at 39.64 and Rick Emerson of Breckenridge, Colo., at 39.08. Steve Desovich, the 1985-86 international Grand Prix champion from Middlebury, Conn., finished fourth at 38.93. The freestyle nationals end today with the women's aerials at 10:15 a.m. and the men's aerials at 11:30 a.m. Both events take place on Mott's Madness near the top of the gondola. Despite her "lackadaisical" effort, Wolff led after the first run with a score of 34.58. However, Mclntyre took the lead with a 36.73 on her second run before Wolff surpassed her. Wolff said she just needed time to get motivated after competing in the 1986-87 Grand Prix. "After a long year, it's tough to get back and compete in the nationals. That's the reason I wasn't up for my first run. I got a spark in the second run. I was NBA roundup extra period to beat the Pistons. The Pistons, who led for the first 44 minutes of the game, managed just two free throws each by Isiah Thomas and Bill Laimbeer in overtime as their hopes of ending Boston's 25-game home winning streak faded. Detroit led by 17 points in the first quarter, 62-54 at halftime and 93-80 after the third quarter. But Boston got the first 11 points of the fourth period and the score was tied 111-111 at the end of regulation. BULLETS 122, BULLS 118 at Lan-dover, Md. Jeff Malone scored 33 points and won his personal duel with Michael Jordan as the Bullets beat the Bulls. Jay Vincent had a season-high 33 for the Bullets, who snapped a three-game losing streak and pulled into a tie with Indiana for sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls are eighth, one game behind. Jordan, the NBA's leading scorer with a 36.8 average, scored 32 for the Bulls. He failed to score from the 9:13 mark of the fourth period until he hit a 3-point shot with 16 seconds left, trimming Lakers' Johnson again shows Giants shoot for stars This is another in a series of preseason looks at major league baseball teams. By Steve SneddonGazette-Journal SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - This isn't that phony spring training optimism. Tthe San Francisco Giants say this is the real thing. Al Rosen, the Giants' president and general manager, predicts his club will win the National League West. Without bravado, his players act as if the division is theirs to win. "Just looking at the physical talent, we're as good or better as any team in the division," said catcher Bob Brenly, who joined the Giants in 1981. "Add on top of that Roger Craig, the best manager in baseball. He's given us confidence we didn't have before." Craig, the tall North Carolinian, oozes with positive thinking. In 1986, he took a club that had lost 100 games the season before and fashioned an 83-79 record and a third-place finish in the NL West. The Giants, who open against San Diego at Candlestick Park on Monday, point to a strong everyday lineup. They had enough depth in the outfield that Dan Gladden could be traded to Minnesota for a couple of Class A pitchers. Now, the Giants say they can overtake 1986 National League West champion Houston Astros and all the rest. But Craig said the Giants aren't creating pressure for themselves. "I don't think there's going to be more pressure on us because these guys are a lot more confident in themselves than they were last year at this time," Craig said. Exhibition baseball Yanks snap streak FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -Dave Winfield drove in five runs and New York hit four of its six homers during a nine-run eighth inning as the Yankees snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 24-hit attack by trouncing Montreal 23-7 Friday.

"I think Kelly Downs is going to have the most wins on our staff," says pitching coach Norm Sherry. Also in the rotation are left-hander Mark Davis, who was 5-7 with a 2.99 as mostly a relief pitcher last year, and right-handers Mike LaCoss (10-13, 3.57 ERA) and Roger Mason (3-4, 4.80 ERA). The stopper is right-hander Scott Garrelts, who waj 13-9 with a 3.11 ERA and 10 saves last year. Right-hander Jeff Robinson (6-3, 3.36 ERA) is the leading figure in middle and long relief, but two of the big stories out of training camp were the comebacks by left-hander Atlee Hammaker and right-hander Jim Gott. "Atlee and Jim Gott have been nothing short of unbelievable," Brenly said. "Especially Jim Gott . . . he's throwing as well as I've ever seen him. They've proved they can pitch ." Gott underwent rotator cuff surgery last June. Hammaker didn't pitch last season and underwent rotator cuff and knee surgery in 1986. five shutout innings and Bob James followed with two perfect innings INDIANS 5, BREWERS 4 at Tucson, Ariz.

Brenly said it's difficult to ask a group of professional athletes to do the things Craig has asked of the Giants in the last two seasons. "Spring training is the time to work out one or two hours a day and drink pina coladas. He came in and had us work out from nine to four." Craig brought in the work ethic and the split-fingered fastball. Right-hander Mike Krukow, who was 20-9 with a 3.05 earned run average last year, says the Giants pitching staff, which was third in the league in team ERA at 3.33, will be better this year. He says that's because it will be the staff's second full season with the split-fingered pitch that Craig teaches. The 35-year-old Krukow came back from an 8-11 season in 1985. Brenly has no doubt that Krukow will have success this year similar to that in 1986. "If we score runs, play defense like we did last year, he could easily win 20 games again." But Krukow could be upstaged by another pitcher in the rotation, young right-hander Kelly Downs, who had a 4-4 record with a 2.75 ERA after a promotion from Class AAA Phoenix. Downs has four pitches, including the in the seventh inning to beat the Jays. A s 11, CUBS 10 at Mesa, Ariz.
