Page 10 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Friday, March 25, 1988 Sports Associated Press Phillies' 3rd baseman Bill Almon bumps Darren Daulton; both miss ball Lady Ump's Post Unknown MESA, Ariz. (AP) — National League president Bart Giamatti may not have decided whether Pam Postema will become the first female umpire in major league baseball history, but she has at least one backer in Cincinnati Reds Manager Pete Rose. "She did good," Rose said after Postema worked first base during Cincinnati's 3-1 exhibition victory Thursday over Houston at Kissimmee, Fla. Despite the endorsement and published reports, Giamatti maintained his position on Postema's status this season. "1 have consistently said we will not make an announcement about any of our people (umpires) until we reach a decision, and there is no decision yet," Giamatti said, "We are still studying 10 people and she is one of them." USA Today quoted Giamatti in Thursday's editions as saying Postema would not be one of two umpires added to the NL's pool of vacation replacements, and the newspaper said it was standing by its story. The Sacramento Bee ran a similar story quoting Giamatti as saying: "I think she does a good job. Does that mean she'll be called up right away? No, it doesn't."

Bedrosian May Miss Opener; Braves Will Start Mahler Associated Press The Philadelphia Phillies, hoping they have enough pitching to co'mpete in the National League East, , probably won't have Cy Young Award winning relief pitcher Steve Bedrosian in time for opening day. Bedrosian, who sustained a strained rib muscle and then caught pneumonia, was given permission to start exercising today for the first time in almost three weeks. But Dr. Philip Marone, the team physician, he said he doubted the right- hander would be ready by April 5. Marone said Thursday that Bedrosian's lungs are clearing. "His blood count has returned to normal," Marone said. "But it is doubtful he will be ready for opening day." Phillies Manager Lee Elia, who anticipated that Bedrosian would not be available to open the season, has switched right-hander Kent Tekulve and left-hander Jeff Calhoun from middle relief to short relief. "There really is no difference," said TekuJve, who filled the same role for Pittsburgh for many years. "It's just a little later in the game ... We have the bullpen versatility not to miss a beat." Calhoun said he is ready. "Teke (Tekulve) has vast experience and I've matured. I welcome the challenge." Atlanta Braves Manager Chuck Tanner is betting that Rick Mahler's perfect opening-night record will remain. Tanner has chosen Mahler to face Rick Sutcliffe of the Chicago Cubs in the Braves' April 5 opener. It will be the fifth opening-night start for Mahler, who is 4-0 with three shutouts and no runs allowed in 34 innings in season openers. "He'll have pitched the most innings (in exhibitions) and has the experience," Tanner said. "I have faith in Mahler." Mahler, who dropped out of the rotation last August when he was 6-12 with a 5.11 ERA, has 46 losses in the last three seasons, most among National League pitchers. Since his 7-0 start in CubsoAthetics Rafael Palmeiro had three hits, including his second spring homer, and drove in five runs for Chicago. Palmeiro hit a two-run homer off Oakland starter Tim Meeks in the second inning, singled home a run in the third and two more with a double in the sixth. Oakland's Carney Lansford went 4-for-4, including a double and homer. Rangers 8, White Sox6 Texas scored five runs against Steve Rosenberg in the seventh inning. Rosenberg replaced Jack McDowell in the sixth with a 6-3 lead and struck out the first four batters he faced. Ruben Sierra and Pete O'Brien had RBI singles and scored runs in the sixth. Greg Walker, who had seven home runs and 21 RBI against the Rangers last season, hit two home runs off Jose Guzman. PhilliesT^CardinaTsT Newly acquired Bill Almon went 5-for-6 and Chris James and Darren Daulton drove in three runs each for Philadelphia. Almon, acquired Monday from the New York Mets, had four singles and a double, drove in one run and scored four to lead the Phillies' 20-hit attack. Danny Cox, who has had elbow problems this spring, made his first appearance for St. Louis sinceJVIarch ^pitching two jnnings. Reds 3, Astros 1 Mario Soto, idled by shoulder troubles for most of 1986 and 1987, pitched six scoreless innings for Cincinnati. Soto who has won all three of his spring decisions, allowed only one hit, walked none and struck out two. He faced the minimum 18 batters. In five exhibition starts, Soto has allowed 12 hits and three earned runs in 19 2-3 innings for a 1.37 earned run average. Chris Sabo had three doubles and scored two of Cincinnati's three runs. Expos 4, Braves 1 Neal Heaton pitched a six-hitter for Montreal in a game shortened to seven innings by rain. Heaton held the Braves scoreless until surrendering an RBI double to Andres Thomas in the seventh. Montreal's Tim Raines had two hits, scored once and drove in a run as the Expos took advantage of four Atlanta errors to snap a four-game losing streak. Giants 13, Angels 1 Bob Melvin had two of San Francisco's nine hits in a nine-run fifth inning. The first seven hits in the inning came off California starter Willie F'raser, who had blanked the Giants on three hits through the first four. Tourney Continued from page 9 who had five points in the decisive burst. Mark West led the Big East team with 24 points. Rex Chapman had 30 points, including five 3-point baskets, for Kentucky, 27-6. "We made some mistakes on the offensive end, trying to make something happen, we took a couple of bad shots and fell behind," Kentucky Coach Eddie Sutton said. "Any time you get behind a team like Villanova, you have a problem." _____ Temple, 32-1, took the lead for good with less than three minutes gone. Ahead only 39-34 with 16:25 left, the Owls then pulled away as their zone defense clamped down on the Spiders. "I don't see a weakness on that team," Richmond Coach Dick Tarrant said. Purdue Continued from page 9 is in the Final 16 for the third consecutive year. Vanderbilt, 20-10, is in the NCAAs for the first time in 14 years. It reached the Final 16 with an 80-74 overtime victory over Pittsburgh after Barry Goheen's desperation 3-pointer tied the game 69-69 at the end of regulation. The Kansas-Vanderbilt mat- chup likely will be closer than the game between Purdue, 29-3, and Kansas State, 24-8. Purdue seems to have the easiest competition of the top- seeded teams in the four re- gionals. "We realize that we probably have one of the best roads to the Final Four, probably better than any other team," Purdue guard Everette Stephens said. "If we don't do things right, it will be an easy road," said Mitch Richmond, Kansas State's leading scorer. The Boilermakers have four starters averaging at least 12.6 points per game, while Kansas State has just one, Richmond. But the Wildcats also have guard Will Scott, who made seven of eight 3-pointers in a victory over DePaul that got Kansas State to tonight's game. On Dec. 20, the Wildcats were crushed 101-72 at Purdue to fall to 5-3. They are 19-5 since then. "They're playing a lot better basketball by far than when we played them. They changed their offense," said guard Troy Lewis, Purdue's top scorer.
