Cubs 3 Padres 2 CHICAGO Ryne Sandberg, batting just .205 against San Diego this year, hit a home run leading off the eighth inning, boosting Chicago to a victory over the Padres. Sandberg's homer, his 11th of the Pitching against Butte at Legion Park scored 31 runs on 42 hits in Butte and took two of the three games. Thirty-two runs on 55 hits helped them to salvage a split of the series in Idaho Falls. But no matter how well the offense continues to produce, Great Falls probably won't remain in first place if the pitching can't find a way to hold down the opposition. "We're as good as our pitching lets us be. And that wasn't very good tonight," said Great Falls manager Tim Johnson after the Dodgers had dropped a 12-10 decision to Butte on Thursday. "He's absolutely right. This team will go as far as the pitching will take it," said Guy Wellman, minor league field coordinator for the Los Angeles Dodgers. "There are a lot of good hitters here, obviously. But the pitching has to hold up." Wellman is high on Dodger pitch- r7 7; t i , Marty Barrett of Boston can't safe at second base on this straight. helped the Baltimore Orioles and himself break out of a hitting slump with two home runs, a single and five RBI that keyed a victory over Minnesota. Murray, who entered the game with one hit in his last 19 at-bats, slammed a two-run homer in the first inning for a 2-0 lead and then capped a six-run second with a three-run shot, his 16th, to make it 8-3.

Success will depend on how fast they can progress.' They have a lot to work on. "There's nothing better than game experience. And that's what it's going to take."

What can Dodger pitchers do to end the current slide and get on track for a high finish? Gregson said Friday the staff has set a new goal for itself. "It's obvious we're pitching for a team that's going to score a lot of runs. Every time we have a big inning offensively, we (the pitchers) want to come out and keep the momentum going," he said. "Our No. 1 goal is to get the first hitter out and then get ahead on the next guy. Getting the first guy out allows the momentum to stay with the team that just had the big inning." Specifically, both Gregson and Wellman said Dodger pitchers need to work on both pitch selection and pitch location.

"He needs to learn pitch selection. He's used to getting kids out with hard stuff." Added Wellman: "The major problem is pitching from behind (in the ballstrike count). When the batter is ahead, he knows the fastball is coming in. "The key Is getting ahead of the hitters. (Dodger pitchers) just have to throw strikes and use their good stuff." Gregson agreed that getting ahead of the hitter is a big key. "There's some merit to getting ahead in the count. We stress the first-pitch strike," he said. "Our first-pitch strike ratio was outstanding early in the season, but we've struggled lately."
