After Wausau took a 10-9 lead in the top of the 10th, Springfield put together three straight two-out singles to tie the game. Then after Lewis Martinez was intention- 11 11 1 A 1 1 Al any warned 10 loau uie Mils a bases, Timbers' reliever v John Boothby balked on 'Oling a 1-1 count, allowing the winning run to score. "He leaned in and started his motion and that commits him to the plate," umpire Brian Wilber explained. "Then he stopped. He must go to the plate." Timbers' manager Mike Young disagreed. "He did not balk. He bent down to get a better look at the sign. He did not move his hands and you have to move your hands to balk. He bent down and it was totally legal. It was a lousy call in that situation." vlt was a frustrating end to a night filled with Timbers' highlights. i Both teams belted out 17 hits. Wausau was led by Brad Hildreth, who was 4-for-6. Mike Lamitola was 3-for-5 and Steve Godin and Sergio Cairo 3-for-6. The Timbers continue their eight-game toad trip tonight by opening a two-game series at Peoria.

They know it and readily admit it. Still, they have taken extraordinary measures to travel the 15,000 miles from their South American home to Wausau just so they can go up against the best - slalom racers in the world. "For us, just to be here and compete is a success," Perez, 19, said through an interpreter. "The most important thing for us now is to learn the sport and learn what it is like to compete at a high level. Right now we paddle at a low level compared to many of the people here. We want to raise that and are prepared to do whatever it takes." If desire were enough, the two surely would go home with gold. They arrived Monday at New York's LaGuardia International Airport armed with only a phone number and a name. "I got a call Monday afternoon from this gate agent at LaGuardia," said Barb Schneider, a Wausau race organizer and contact for many foreign paddlers. "It was quite comical. The gate agent said there were two guys there with a boat and that they knew only two words of English: Barb Schneider. He wanted to know what he should do with them." Schneider told the agent to get them on a plane to Chicago. The two Argentinian national slalom champions then took a bus from Chicago to Wau-Please turn to WORLD CUP2B J Terry Mills Mills' future with Milwaukee still a mystery MILWAUKEE (AP) - Terry Mills is in the NBA. That much he knows. But where he'll be playing next season remained a mystery Thursday, the day after the Milwaukee Bucks selected him with the No. 16 pick of the first round. The Bucks are considering trading the 6-f oot-10 forward, who helped Michigan to a national championship as a junior. Mills wasn't around Thursday to talk about his status, which could remain unsettled until the NBA's salary cap expands Aug. 1. "He was thrilled to death to be drafted by Milwaukee, but we always realized he can be traded," Bob Woolf, Mills' agent, said from his Boston office Thursday. "It could be and maybe it won't go through. It's really not that unusual. Everything is on hold. We'll just see what the heck happens." Bucks coach Del Harris, who spoke with Mills Thursday morning, won't comment on Milwaukee's potential trades, although he said there was a strong possibility one would be made. The salary cap will increase from $9.8 million to at least $11.7 million by Aug. 1, meaning the Bucks are interested in a veteran player. The Milwaukee Journal reported that the Bucks have considered at least three offers for Mills, but the most attractive was one for 6-foot-11 Denver Nuggets center Danny Schayes. Harris said Mills didn't appear confused or upset when they talked by telephone. "He appreciated us being up front with him, to let him know that we were going to consider some trade options for him during the next month," Harris said Thursday. Michigan coach Steve Fisher said he expected Mills to be let down by the unsettled situation. "In my opinion, Terry will be one of the more productive draft picks," Fisher said. "He's a terrific player. I'm sure he'll wonder what's going to happen and I'm sure he feels disappointed. But the fact they're talking trade means somebody wants him. When this is done, he should tell himself he's going where he's wanted and needed." .;-'it, u ; si ft. & i t 'it, if ' - t . V - - 1 " - 4 i ?

V I k 111 i . 1 I I J i i photo Game-Winner: New York catcher Bob Geren gives himself a hand after hitting a two-out, RBI-single in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 3 2, Thursday at Yankee stadium. By Rick Carpiniello Gannett News Service NEW YORK The only question in Thursday's ' New York Yankees-Brewers game was this: Who would screw it up last? The answer was Milwaukee. '. Bob Geren's two-out base hit into the right field I corner knocked in the winning run in the bottom of ; the ninth, as the Yankees took two of three from the bumbling Brewers with a 3-2 victory. "It's a good win because we had the lead and we ' didn't let them take the game away from us," the ; Yankees' Roberto Kelly said. "We let them tie it, I but we didn't let them take it away." vv Kelly was in the middle of the main foul-up, as the Yankees were holding a 2-1 lead forged on a two-run first inning and Tim Leary's pitching. In the eighth, though, with a chance to pad the lead ) against the struggling Milwaukee bullpen, the; Yankees came up lame. -" I Alvaro Espinoza led off with a base hit off! starter Mark Knudson that center fielder Robin Yount misplayed into a triple. Yount, instead of circling and cutting the ball off, tried to make an ' impossible catch as the ball rolled to the gap. . Brewers manager Tom Trebelhorn called for ; Yount to come in as a fifth infielder, and played the J infield in against Kelly. With only two men patrol-ling the outfield, Kelly struck out. ; It was clear that one run wasn't going to be enough. Dave Righetti came on to start the ninth, ', and gave up a game-tying home run to the first bat-; ter he faced, Gary Sheffield. "Rags bent, but he didn't break," said New York ! manager Stump Merrill. But he blew a save opportunity for the second time this season, and wound up with the win when ! the Yankees manufactured a run in the ninth. Balboni opened with a pinch-hit single off Bob j Sebra (1-2) and Deion Sanders ran for Balboni. Sanders moved to second on Jesse Barfield's sacri-', fice bunt and sprinted to third on Jim Leyritz',' bouncer to short. Geren, who had popped out to Surhoff on a check swing in his previous at-bat, t lifted a fly into the corner that bounced into the ; seats a Sanders jogged home. "It was a real big win," Geren said. "It looked .' like we were going along fine from the first inning,! ; and in the eighth, when we didn't score that run, it was a letdown. When we let up that homer, it i looked really grim." The snake-bitten Leary, who remained at 3-10, allowed one run on four hits through seven innings. Trickle pleased with 1st half results By Ed Wodalski Wausau Daily Herald Bruised but not broken, Dick Trickle has high hopes for the second half of the NASCAR Winston Cup season. Still suffering the i effects of a last-lap crash at Pocono, Pa., June 17, that sent his Phillips 66 Trop-Artic Pontiac into the wall, Trickle says the Yar-borough Motorsports team has had its ups and downs this season, i Highlights this sea son have been winning Djck the Winston Open and Trlrlrlo qualifying for The 1 ncMe Winston, and winning the pole at Dover. "You always like to run well in front of the home crowd," Trickle said during a telephone Interview from his home in Iron Station, N.C. "We live in the Charlotte area now and several of the crew are from Charlotte." Winning the pole also qualifies Trickle for February's Busch Clash at Daytona. Downs include the Pocono crash that destroyed his Pontiac and a poor-performing car that ran on seven cylinders at Michigan International Raceway last Sunday. "We just finished running that one for the points," said Trickle. Accustomed to finishing first on the Midwest's short tracks, the former Wisconsin Rapids resident said setting the fast time and being a runner-up at Pocono the following week gave the team an added boost. "I had the fast time for most of the day," said the 1989 NASCAR Rookie of the Year. "Ernie Irvan was one of the last cars to qualify and he beat me out." Known as "America's Winningest Stock Car Driver" for his exploits on tracks like State Park Speedway in Wausau, Golden Sands in Plover and the Dells Motor Speedway in Wisconsin Dells, Trickle says Winston Cup racing has taught him patience. "This team has been here four years and hasn't won one, and I've only been here a half year. It's tough competition. And as we become more and more experienced, the We're as competitive as we need to be and can expect to be. We are just trying to be more consistent. 3 3 Wisconsin Dick Trickle Rapids native win will come. But no, I'm not disappointed. It (a win) doesn't happen overnight. It takes a while. You've got to be patient in this league. You aren't going to do it overnight. "We're as competitive as we need to be and can expect to be. We are just trying to be more consistent ... more top S finishes." Heading into the second half of the sea son, Trickle said the team will have a better idea of what it can do at each track. ; "We'll have a base to work from," h$ said. Another plus this season for Trickle has! been the support he continues to receive from fans in the Midwest and central Wis consin. I "We've been getting complaints that we've messed up a lot of Sunday afternoons," Trickle says with a laugh. "(But) t hope they keep an eye on me. I can't be with them on Thursday or Saturday night ... ana the fans can't afford to go to Daytona every; week." .. An in-car camera will enable fans to continue to ride with Trickle this season. Phil-! lips 66 purchased the camera for 19 of this; year's Winston Cup events. ; Trickle ranks 18th In this year's Winston Cup standings with 1,566 points and has; $234,733 in winnings. His next race will be the Pepsi 400 at Daytona Beach July 7. Closer to home, Trickle will be running his short track car at the Slinger Nationals and at State Fair Park Speedway in West Allis in July. ; i
