-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1989 — 9 Schmidt passes another milestone By The Associated Press Mike Schmidt's extra base hit in the first inning against Pittsburgh was extra special, too. Schmidt, whose 546 homers rank seventh all- time, broke Richie Ashburn's Philadelphia club record for hits Thursday night with a run-scoring double —the 2,218th hitof his 17-season career. He also doubled and scored in the fifth inning as the Phillies beat the Pirates 9-4 Thursday night at Three Rivers Stadium. "It's not up there with number 500, but getting the most hits in the history of an organization is something to be happy about," Schmidt said. The Phillies scored three times in the first inning and twice in the second to take a 5-1 lead against Mike Dunne, 1-1. Ken Wo well, 2-0, allowed four runs and three hits over six innings before Greg Harris pitched two scoreless innings and Todd Frohwirth finished the game. "This team isn't doing anything out of the ordinary other than hitting the ball," Schmidt said. "We've got a guy hitting fifth (Von Hayes) who is the best hitter in the league and we've got three guys up in the batting order (Juan Samuel, Tommy Herr and Chris James) who can hit the ball." Von Hayes, hit a two-run homer in the first inning and is batting a league-leading .489. As a team, the Phillies are batting .272, nearly 30 points higher than they did last season. Mets 4, Cubs 3 Gregg Jefferies broke a 1 -fpr-28 slump with a game-tying single and Mookie Wilson's grounder scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning as New York beat Chicago at Shea Stadium. Baseball roundup Dwight Gooden, 3-0, pitched seven innings and allowed four hits for the victory and Roger McDowell finished for his first save. Gooden improved to 16-3 lifetime against the Cubs. Cardinals 5, Expos 2 Rookie Ken Hill earned his first major league victory and drove in a run as St. Louis defeated visiting Montreal. Hill, 1-0, pitched seven-plus innings and allowed five hits. Todd Worrell pitched out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the eighth when he got Hubie Brooks to hit into a double play and struck out Tim Wallach. Worrell retired the side in the ninth for his third save. Astros 4, Braves 3 Third baseman Ron Gant's fielding error allowed Kevin Bass to score the go-ahead run in the eighth inning as Houston snapped a four- game losing streak. The victory went to Danny Darwin, 1-0, and Dave Smith finished for his second save. Mariners 5, White Sox 3 Ken Griffey Jr. had a good reason to be nervous. For the first time, his father, Ken Griffey Sr., watched him play in a major league game. The elder Griffey had the night off because the Cincinnati Reds were idle and sat in the press box in Chicago on Thursday night. With his dad watching him play for the first time in the major leagues, 'Junior' blooped an RBI single to snap a 2-2 tie and the Seattle Mar- iners went on to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2. "It was nice to see him get that hit," Griffey Sr. said. "It was a bloop, but I think he already knows the line drives get caught a lot." Orioles 2, Royals 0 Jeff Ballard became the first Baltimore starter to win his first three starts of the season in 16 years as the Orioles beat visiting Kansas City. Ballard matched Dave McNally's 1973 start even though the Royals put runners on base in five of the first seven innings. The left-hander allowed seven hits in 8 1-3 innings and Mark Williamson got the last two outs for his third save. Twins 7, Tigers 2 Carmen Castillo's RBI double snapped a 2-2 tie and sparked a five-run eighth inning as Minnesota beat Detroit. With the score 2-2, Kent Hrbek led off the eighth with a double off Frank Tanana, 0-3. Gene Larkin singled pinch-runner Dan Gladden to third and Castillo lined the next pitch into right-center. Red Sox 5, Indians 2 Nick Esasky and Jim Rice hit two-run homers and Oil Can Boyd pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings as Boston sent Cleveland to its sixth consecutive defeat. Dwight Evans added a solo homer for the Red Sox. Boyd, 1-1, allowed six hits, struck out three and walked one. Ukiah Speedway Mini stackers to roll Saturday night An early season points battle is already shaping up in all three divisions of regular competing cars at Ukiah Speedway. Capturing both Street Stock feature wins thus far, Kelseyville's, Deake Lyndall Jr. has the early lead in that division with 210 points followed closely by brother Tom with 190 points in second. Defending 1988 champion Ed Shouse is in third place with 189 points. In the Hobby Stock Division, John Saunders sits in first place with 191 points, Denny Cashada in second with 186 points and Cloverdale's seventeen year old rookie Mike Caturegli bringing up third with 182 points. The new jalopy class with only one night of point racing competition so far this season has Gerry Giovannato of Cloverdale leading the field with 70 points, Redwood Valley's, Don Guida in second with 68 points and Roger Fletcher of Cloverdale with 66 points. This Saturday night, the regu- lar classes of Ukiah Speedway will be joined by the C.A.R.S. Mini Stocks. Drivers expected to be on hand for the Mini's first appearance of the 1989 season include Lower Lake's Jack Russel and Lakeport's Rob Straka, both 1988 feature winners on the C.A.R.S. circuit; Brian Yates of San Francisco, Jim Story of Sacramento, eighteen year old Todd Cobum of Upper Lake, Fred Willis of Redding, Joe Busch of Pinole and Scott Howard of San Jose. As an incentive to promote safety in auto racing, the Pensacola Travel Agency of Florida has posted a "Greenback Award Bonus" for the Mini Stocks this year. In the event the Minis can run a wire-to-wire, green flag main event, Pensacola Travel will increase pay-offs to each driver by 10% over the regularly posted purse. Can they do it? Be there Saturday night to see for yourself. Gates open at 5:00 p.m., Qualifying at 6:00, Racing at 7:00.

Thursday's 11-8 victory by the 'Cats saw Ukiahi pound out 12 hits, with Will Wilburn's four hits pacing the attack. Also having a good day at the plate in his return to action was Aaron Hookens. After missing 5 games with a knee injury, Hookens made a successful return for the 'Cats, driving in three runs with a single and a key sixth-inning double. Middletown had a 3-0 lead going into the bottom of the second inning, but Ukiahi rallied for 6 runs in the frame. Runners continued pouring across the plate for both teams, with Middletown Finally pushing three runs across the plate in the sixth inning to tie the score at 8-8. ! The 'Cats came scored three times themselves in • the inning, highlighted by Hookens' two-run double ; which scored Andy Alvorado and Jacob Coughlin. Ukiahi's pitching staff had their (unusual) share of; problems however. Brandon Wright pitched the first four innings, giving up 5 runs and 8 hits, while David ; Downey had trouble with the number 3, allowing 3 1 hits, 3 walks, and 3 runs in 3 innings of work. "We played great," said Ukiahi freshman coach ', Jerry Baughn afterward. "We came through with the clutch basehits."
