6D BThe Clarion-Ledger Sunday, June 3, 1990 JaxIMs tumble in 12th The Clarion-Ladger A trip to Omaha eluded outfielder By Billy Watkina Clarion-Ledger Staff Wrltar . ... " ' ' v.-;- lsv ' x-y ! . ..." - "w ; h.v V-."" v.;--, ' "' , . t , ' ' i ' :.--.. -- - - - - -- - j Bill Haselman doubled in the game-winning run with two outs in the 12th inning as Tulsa beat visiting Jackson 2-1 in a Texas League game Saturday night. Tulsa leads the TL East. The Mets, winless against the Drillers in five games at Tulsa this season, are 812 games out. The Mets play the Drillers in a doubleheader today starting at 5:05 p.m. The Mets wasted a strong effort by starter Pete Schourek, who went nine innings, allowed six hits, struck out 12 and walked none. Reliever Aguido Vasquez, 0-5, took the loss. The Mets' bullpen is 3-10. Tulsa got its first run in the fourth on a triple by Monty Farris and a single by Rob Mauer. The Mets tied it in the fifth on back-to-back doubles by Alex Ji-minez and Angelo Cuevas, who was in a 1 -for-17 slump. The Mets stranded runners in scoring position in seven innings. Steve Allen, 4-2, got the win with two perfect innings of relief. Mets reliever Terry Bross threw two innings to run his string of scoreless appearances to 15. Notes: Through Thursday, Mets catchers had thrown out 25 of 49 base stealers. Todd Hundley was 14 of 27, Javier Gonzalez 7 of 17 and Hattiesburg native Kenny Graves, now at Class AAA Tidewater (Va.), 4 of 5 The Mets are scheduled to play 14 games in 12 days on their current road trip. The number of games is the most for a trip in franchise history. . . . The Mets were rained out for the first time Thursday. In 24 home dates, they have drawn 38,149 fans or 10,921 more than last year at this time. They were rained out 10 times in 1989. Jody Hurst says the only goal he didn't reach while at Mississippi State was going to the College World Series. He's finally enjoying that experience this week ... all the way from Lakeland, FJa, thanks to the wonders of telephones, televisions and VCRs. Hurst, a two-year professional outfielder currently with the Detroit Tigers' Class A farm team, has been constantly communicating with his former Bulldog teammates since last week's South II Regional. "I see Florida State all the time down here," Hurst said. "So when I found out they were going to Starkville, I called Burke (Masters) he was my roommate and told him they could beat Florida State. They were a good , club, but they didn't blow a lot of people out." , ' He received tournament updates from his parents, who live in Meridian, and he called his former teammates following Monday's fi- , , nal. "I talked to Burke and (Tommy) Raffo and - . (Jon) Shave," he says. "I tried to call Bobby , Reed, but he was out. I talked to (John) Co- hen's answer machine. I just wanted to tell them how happy I was for them." - , Then the next morning, Hurst went out and borrowed a VCR so he could tape all of State's CWS games. "We play at night down here, too," he says, "I "but I'll stay up and watch (the State games) when I get home." Hurst, 23, could've been part of the 1990 ' Z College World Series. He left State as a junior, - Z after the 1989 season. He has mixed emotions this week about his decision. I "It was a big disappointment that I never : The Clarion-Ledger Former Mississippi State star Jody Hurst (sliding), who never played in a College World Series, is hitting .290 in Class A at Lakeland, Fla. the rieht thine." "I could've been at State playing in tront of 10,000 people. Instead, we usually have 300 Hurst bats third and plays center field for reached the College World Series," he says. "To be honest, it was almost enough to make me go back to school for my senior year. But with Pete (Young) leaving and Richie (Grayum) leaving, I honestly didn't see us having a great shot of going (to the CWS). So I went ahead and signed. "I would love to be there with them this week, but I honestly believe, in the long run, I made the right decision. Instead of signing this year and being sent off to some rookie league, I have a chance to move up to Double A later in the year. For my career, I know I did people at our games," he said. "It's different. "And when you get in a slump, you really don't have time to work out of it because we're always playing games. Usually if you're slumping a bit, the manager will give you a day off. It helps me to get away from it for a day." This week, his bat and glove are in Lakeland. His mind and heart are in Omaha. "It's almost like I'm there with them," he said. "But I'm happy where I'm at." the Lakeland Tigers. He is batting .290 with two home runs and 25 RBIs. "I feel like I'm doing pretty well," he said. "I feel like I'm one of the leaders on the team. My home runs are down a little bit, but the ballparks in this league are really big. I know that sounds like an excuse, but most of the fences in this league are 410 or 420 feet to center field." His biggest adjustments have been playing every day and playing in front of small crowds.

But umpire Derryl Cousins ruled that Davis tagged Jones on the helmet. Tigers manager Sparky Anderson came out of the dugout to protest. Ward also reached when shortstop Brumley hobbled his routine grounder in the fourth inning. It was the second no-hitter of the season but the first complete-game nine-inning no-hitter in the majors since Cincinnati's Tom Browning pitched a perfect game against Los Angeles on Sept. 16, 1988. The Mariners were the victims of this year's no-hitter, as Langston and Mike Witt combined to pitch California to a 1-0 victory over Seattle on April 11. The Mariners have had four one-hitters in their 14-year history. The most recent was on April 20, when Brian Holman got the first 26 outs before allowing a homer to Ken Phelps in a 6-1 victory over Oakland. The other one-hitters were by Jim Beattie in 1983, Mike Trujillo in 1986 and Langston in 1988. The no-hitter was the 11th ever pitched against the Tigers and the first since the Angels' Nolan Ryan beat them 6-0 on July 15, 1973. The Mariners had only three hits themselves. Robinson allowed three hits and two runs in seven innings.
