C2 SUNDAY. APRIL 15. 2001 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL THE SALINA JOURNAL T ROYALS Hernandez crumbles in ninth The Associated Press Royals catcher Hector Ortiz tags out the Blue Jays' Alex Gonzalez during the sixth inning Saturday in Toronto. However, the play wasn't enough for Kansas City as the Jays rallied for a 5-4 victory in the bottom of the ninth. Royals closer allows four runs, blows second save opportunity of season By The Associated Press TORONTO — Roberto Hernandez is fitting in perfectly with the Kansas City Royals. Carlos Delgado's RBI single capped Toronto's rally from a three- run ninth-inning deficit against Hernandez and gave the Blue Jays a 5-4 victory over the Royals on Saturday Hernandez, acquired in the offsea­ son, allowed all four runs to blow his second save and take the loss. The Royals have blown 58 saves, mostly by former closer Jeff Montgomery, the last two-plus seasons. Royals Blue Jays 5 "We should be feeling better, but the hole got deeper today," Kansas City manager Tony Muser said after the Royals fell to 2-9. "Roberto's had slow starts in the past. He's going to get going, except everything in life is timing, and we've gotten off to a slow start. One week doesn't make a season, but pretty soon you bury yourself." Hernandez (0-2) walked Darrin Fletcher and pinch-hitter Jose Cruz Jr. before Shannon Stewart hit an RBI double and Alex Gonzalez hit a run- scoring grounder. After Raul Mondesi tied it with an RBI single, he stole second before Delgado, who also homered earlier, hit a bloop single to center field. "When you've got a three-run lead, you can't afford to walk anybody," said Hernandez, who knows the Royals have had problems closing games. "That's very well chronicled the last few years, but mentally I'm tough enough to put this outing, and the outing before this away" Bob File (1-0) pitched one-third of an inning and got the win in his major league debut. Mark Quinn went 3-for-4 for the Royals, who have lost five straight. "It's not easy being 2-9, but we've just got to peck away," Hernandez said. Delgado's AL-leading sixth homer gave Toronto a 1-0 lead in the second. Carlos Beltran's sacrifice fly tied it in the third, and Rey Sanchez's RBI triple in the fifth gave Kansas City the lead. After Quinn singled to lead off the sixth, he stole second and advanced to third on Toronto starter Joey Hamilton's errant pick-off attempt. Dye followed with an RBI grounder, giving Kansas City a 3-1 lead. Mike Sweeney homered off John Frascatore in the ninth to make it 4-1. "It's tough being down 4-1 in the ninth, but we gave it our best shot," Delgado said. "I'll take the win, but we shouldn't wait until the ninth and say 'Hey they've got a pretty good chance of blowing it.'" Hamilton allowed three runs — two earned — on six hits in seven innings. He walked none and struck out five. "Hernandez helped us out," Hamilton said. "He was a little wild tonight." Notes Quinn has 17 hits in his last 34 at- bats. ... Toronto manager Buck Martinez was a catcher in the Royals organization from 1969-77. ... After finishing 11 games below .500 on the road last season, the Royals have dropped their first five games away from Kauffman Stadium.

V T SATURDAY'S GAMES Sparks outduels Finley; Tigers snap losing skid Am ROUNDUP By The Associated Press DETROIT — Steve Sparks pitched a four- hitter to outduel Chuck Finley, and the Detroit Tigers stopped a five-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 1-0 Saturday. Sparks (2-1) became the first Tigers pitcher to win twice and had his best outing since a five-hitter against Seattle last Aug. 15, his only other shutout. He struck out five and walked two in the sixth complete game of his career. Sparks had lost his previous four decisions against Cleveland. "He had the ball going in every different direction," Tigers manager Phil Garner said. "He had dangerous stuff out there. The key for a knuckleballer is to throw it for strikes, and he was doing that." Finley (1-2) pitched a three-hitter for his 61th career complete game, his first since last June 6 against Milwaukee. He struck out three and walked one. Detroit scored in the first when Roger Cedeno led off with an infield single, stole second, took third on a fly ball and scored on Bobby Higginson's sacrifice fly. Cleveland's best early scoring chance came in the fifth when Jim Thome hit a one- out triple, but Sparks struck out Russell Branyan and retired Eddie Taubensee on a groundout. Sparks didn't allow another hit until Wil Cordero looped a single leading off the eighth. Cordero took second on a passed ball, but Sparks retired the next three batters. "We had our chances, but we just didn't execute with runners on base," Cleveland manager Charlie Manuel said. "We got Jimmy to third and Wil to second, but couldn't get them over."

Johnny Damon's two-run double off Mike Venafro got Oakland within one, before Miguel Tejada's single off Jeff Zimmerman scored Damon. Zimmerman (1-1), who faced two batters, earned the win. Tim Crabtree pitched the ninth for his fourth save. Twins 9, White Sox 4 MINNEAPOLIS — Doug Mientkiewicz drove in a career-high five runs and Brad Radke became the majors' first three-game winner as Minnesota beat Chicago for its best start in 31 seasons.
