This game's all about pitching. Though the John Rocker circus will draw plenty of attention, this should be entertaining for other reasons. Atlanta, despite ending a 2-4 road trip, and Philadelphia, despite being 5-6, both enter tonight within VA games of the division lead. You'll see a quality pitching matchup, with the Phillies' Robert Person (1-0, 3.00 ERA) vs. the Braves' Greg Maddux (2-0, 2.49). Add to that the fact that both teams are 1-2 in the NL for fewest runs scored and both are near the cellar in home runs, and this 1 will put a premium on scoring.

The Atlanta Braves' reliever, suspended the first two weeks of the season, rejoins the roster tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies. Rocker drew mostly cheers when he pitched at Turner Field in an exhibition game April 1 , two days before Opening Day. No organized protests were scheduled in conjunction with his return, although a civil rights official once again called on the Braves to trade Rocker. r Rockies win . . . finally DENVER Jeff Manto hit a go-ahead double during an eight-run sixth inning that propelled the Rockies to a 14-13 victory over the Cardinals in the second game of a day-night doubleheader.

J-r;8l3i V,itfOP ' "7.- 61 -4s B"w Wood's rehab trail continues In his return from elbow surgery, the Cubs' Kerry Wood makes his second start for Class A Daytona tonight. By Jumoke R. Gamble OF THE SENTINEL STAFF DAYTONA BEACH - Kerry Wood sat in the Daytona Cubs' dugout Monday, miles away from Chicago, where he captivated fans during a spectacular 1998 major-league rookie season. Wood won rookie-of-the-year honors for. the Chicago Cubs that season, going 13-6 with a 3.40 ERA and 233 strikeouts. He tied a major-league record with 20 strikeouts in a game. But his ' 1999 season ended in the first spring training game, when he suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He had surgery April 8 and began a long rehab process. That rehab continues tonight at 7 p.m., when he'll make his second stall for Daytona, the Chicago Cubs' Class A affiliate. If he pitches as he did in his previous start April 13, he should be blowing away batters in the Windy City by the end of the month. Wood shook off a shaky first inning in that outing to finish with a one-hit, nine-strikeout effort in five innings against the Tampa Bay Yankees. He was clocked as high as 97 mph on the radar gun. Wood, 22, is a long way from V i Wood Wrigley Field. But in spirit and accessibility, he is right around the corner. "The arm feels great," he said after a light workout at Jackie Robinson Park. "I've got my velocity back. I've thrown all my breaking stuff at game speed, and I haven't had any soreness in over a month. I'm about ready to go." Daytona pitching coordinator Lester Strode concurs. "He has everything down as far as his pitching mechanics and his delivery," Strode said. Cubs General Manager Ed Lynch will be the ultimate judge. He will be in attendance tonight, assessing Wood's performance against the Sarasota Red Sox. The organization and the city, for that matter had high expectations for the Cubs in 1999 until that spring training game against Anaheim. Wood pitched the first inning before realizing the pain in his arm was more serious than the sore elbow that had plagued him since his days as a high school pitcher in Irving, Texas. "My first pitch of the second inning landed 10 feet above the catcher, and I knew something was wrong," he said. Wood had reconstructive surgery in which a graft from his right forearm was implanted in his elbow. He wore a cast for two weeks, then a brace for six weeks. Once the brace came off, he stretched his "new" ligament by placing a sandbag on his arm until he could straighten it out. He didn't start tossing a ball until four months later. "Those were the most boring four months of my life," he said. Wood didn't face a live hitter until this spring. He arrived at the Cubs' complex in Arizona one month before the rest of the team and worked with pitching coach Oscar Acosta by throwing fastballs and changeups no curves. When it was time to throw his first curveball, Wood had a flashback to the day he blew out his arm. "It was still in the back of my head at that point because the curveball is always the pitch that you can get hurt with," he said. "When I finally threw some with no problem, I knew I was going to come back." Monday, Wood sat in the locker room watching the Chicago Cubs lose to the Florida Marlins on television. He has become more appreciative of the opportunity to play major-league baseball. "I'm not going to take it for granted anymore," said Wood, who believes the entire process has matured him. "I had everything taken away from me. I was the type of guy to show up at the park, throw a few pitches and be ready to go. It caught up to me. "Being a young player, you think you're invincible. I know better now." r bet 8am '18"Twi aft 3pm: Lighted Night Range Best CHAMPIONSHIP Boll Course Value in the Orlando km GLEN ABBEY I HWY 17-92 DeBARY 1 407-66B-4Z09 I I L, M . wcoupon exp 42100 .
