The Twins won their fifth consecutive game and took a 414-game lead over California in Horn a BOSTON (AP) As a 6-foot-5-inch, left-handed slugger, rookie Sam Horn of the Boston Red Sox resembles a young Willie McCovey at bat. And, in three weeks in the major leagues, Horn is whacking the ball the way McCovey did for the San Francisco Giants on his way to the Hall of Fame. "This park may not be big enough for Sam Horn," Boston pitching ace Roger Clemens said after Horn drove in five runs with a grand slam and a pair of long doubles in a 9-1 victory over Toronto Monday at Fenway. "Sam Horn is an exciting player to watch," said Mike Greenwell, another rookie sensation.

"It looks like he's going to be around here for a while." In the 13 games, including one as a pinch hitter, Horn is 17-47 for a .362 average. With six homers and five doubles, he has 40 total bases. He has driven in 15 runs and scored 16. Just a few months ago, at the end of spring training, Horn's baseball future appeared dim. Even against a Harvard freshman pitcher on April 5, he failed to get the ball out of the infield.

However Horn, only 23, has made an amazing comeback. With his career on the line, Horn terrorized International League pitchers as the DH for Pawtucket. Called up on July 23, Horn is continuing his attack on American League hurlers. "The greatest turnaround I've ever seen from spring training to midsummer," said third base coach Joe Morgan. "I'm just trying to wait and see the ball, then explode," Horn said after breaking an 0-9 minislump.

His performance at the plate Monday included a shot over the head of Toronto right fielder Jesse Barfield. The flight of the ball confused Greenwell, who -v I y' I liV 1 I 1 I i i i wr, 17 j--vo may retry McLain The U.S. Attorney's office intends to put ex-baseball star Denny McLain on trial again if necessary, Terry Zi-tek, chief of the criminal division. There's nothing in the opinion of the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which threw out McLain's convictions on drug and racketeering charges Friday, "that says we shouldn't retry the case," Zitek said.

The appeals court ruled that McLain, 43, who has been imprisoned at the Federal Correctional Institute at Talladega, for 28 months, was denied a fair trial because of errors by Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich and federal prosecutors during the four-month trial. But, Zitek said, the appeals-court opinion "had nothing to do with the evidence" presented in the case. "The thought hasn't occcurred to us that he would not go on trial a second time," Zitek added. But he said no final decision has been made on what steps the government will take at this time. The government could ask reconsideration in the appeals court, seek an appeal in the U.S.

Supreme Court, ask for dismissal of the charges or bring McLain to trial a second time. Boxing: Edwin Rosario won a technical knockout in the eighth round to settle a blood feud with Puerto Rican rival Juan Nazario and retain his World Boxing Association lightweight championship title in Chicago.

Pro football: Former Minnesota Viking All-Pro defensive lineman Alan Page told a meeting of attorneys that only the testing industry and lawyers will benefit from mandatory drug testing of athletes. Page, now an attorney with the Minnesota Attorney General's Office, addressed the American Bar Association Convention. He also said he is concerned drug testing may create racial discontent.

"It's a fact of life, if you are black, you are going to get greater scrutiny in your performance than if you are white.

You have to see the ball well and hit it." "Horn has a good bat and he's very aggressive," Toronto Manager Jimmy Williams said. "This is the second series we've seen him."
