' Saturday, July 28, 1990 The Clarion-Ledger 5C BASEBALL Schourek, Bross combine to lead Jackson past El Paso By Rutty Hampton Clarlon-Ladgar Staff Writer Mets manager said from his clubhouse office. "There's a lot of good stories out there. Go talk to them." He was referring to Schourek and Bross, who limited the Diablos to seven hits overall, and no runs after the third inning. Schourek, 10-1 for Jackson, is a combined 15-2 this season for Jackson, Class A St. Lucie and Class AAA Tidewater. He allowed six hits and two runs in 7 23 innings in avenging his only Texas League loss. Bross struck out three, walked one and allowed one hit. He struck out two in the ninth, including Ra-fel Skeete to end the game. He broke the franchise record of 25 saves set in 1986 by Jeff Innis, and now takes aim at the Texas League mark of 33 set last year by Arkansas' Mike Perez. "This means a lot to me because a lot of great pitchers have come through here," said Bross, a 6-foot-9 right-hander. "This means I left my mark." Bross said it was satisfying to come back and pitch well Friday after taking the loss Wednesday in a 6-2 loss to the Diablos. "I was terrible," he said. "That was probably the worst I've been all year. But that's what I like about relieving. You get another chance to come back the next night." Schourek made good on a second chance as well. In his last outing against El Paso, July 16, he allowed eight earned runs in 2 23 innings of an 11-1 loss. "I learned that night you have to hit the corners against these guys," said Schourek, who had a total of nine pro victories in two years coming into this season. "They've been getting a lot of clutch hits and we've been walking too many. I think something like 10 of 13 we walked in this series scored." Schourek walked only two and struck out five Friday. He gave up a solo home run to Ru- ben Escalera in the second and run in the third. He was working with a 3-0 lead, compliments of three first-inning extra base hits. Chuck Carr hit the first pitch thrown by loser Scott May, 4-4, for a triple to right-center, then scored on a double by Jaime Roseboro. Catcher Todd Hundley, in his first game back after a two-week stint with the New York Mets, hit a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0, then Howie Freiling doubled for a 3-0 lead. Roseboro hit his fifth homer of the season leading off the eighth to give the Mets an insurance run. ! JaxMets at home Personal achievements took center stage at Smith-Wills Stadium Friday when the Jackson Mets avoided a five-game sweep by beating the El Paso Diablos 4-2 before a crowd of 1,667. Pete Schourek won his 10th game and Terry Bross set a franchise record with his 26th save as the Mets ended a four-game losing streak. The victory helped the Mets, 19-14, improve their lead in the Texas League Eastern Division over Shreveport to 2ls games.

From Wire Service Report Boston's Tom Bolton held Detroit to four hits in 7 23 innings for his first career road victory after seven losses. Bolton's pitching and an unearned run off Jack Morris gave the Red Sox a 1 -0 victory over the Tigers Friday night at Detroit.
