Baseball Wausau Daily Herald, Monday, April 24, 1989 3B Tl06B"S maul Brewers, 11-3 ! 111 -v. I V ! "V. -T .- Sparky Anderson c ' ' t f J ? , ' to .74 5i? J I A P photo Long day: Milwaukee Brewers' slugger Rob Deer groans after being called out on strikes in the seventh inning during Sunday's 11-3 setback at County Stadium. MILWAUKEE (AP) Tigers manager Sparky Anderson, whose team still has a tough row to hoe, sounded sympathetic. "The last two games they made some errors," Anderson said after the Milwaukee Brewers committed seven errors in back-to-back losses. "Everybody goes through it. I don't care who you are. Every club goes through good and bad things." The Detroit Tigers got 14 hits in an 11-3 victory Sunday. The win gave the Tigers a two-game winning streak, their longest of the season, which also tarnished the Brewers as the only team to lose two straight to Detroit. The Tigers began the game batting .230 with a 4-10 record. Pat Sheridan hit a two-run homer as the Tigers also reached season highs for hits and runs. If Anderson was sympathetic, Brewers manager Tom Trebelhorn was apologetic. "I can just say for the entire ball-club we're very embarrassed to play in this fashion," Trebelhorn said. "It was not a Major League game from our side. It's very distressing to play in this fashion. I can't put into words how much it hurts to play like this. We haven't done a good job." Trebelhorn said his team needed to take control of things it could control. "If we can't control them, we're going to be a less than interesting team," he said. Keith Moreland and Lou Whitaker each got three hits for the Tigers. "The last two games we've had 27 hits. There's no question our pitchers needed to see some of that. We have to score some runs," Moreland said. "We did the things we needed to create runs," Whitaker said. "That's all you need sometimes to get going. After all the things that have happened, we started to hit the ball." Detroit had also beaten the Brewers 6-3 Saturday. "We didn't play well to be 7-9 at this point last year and we've played even worse to be 7-9 this year," Trebelhorn said. Detroit took advantage of three errors, two by rookie shortstop Gary Sheffield, and also scored on a wild pitch. Paul Gibson, 1-0, pitched 3 2-3 innings for the victory. Guillermo Hernandez went 2 1-3 innings for his third save. Don August, 1-4, allowed eight hits, one walk and four runs in 3 2-3 innings for the Brewers. Sheridan hit his first home run of the season in the second inning, connecting after a single by Moreland. Moreland doubled and scored on a wild pitch by August in the fourth. Sheridan singled and came home during a rundown for a 4-1 lead. Alan Trammell was hit by a pitch from Mark Knudson in the fifth and scored on Sheffield's throwing error. The Tigers broke it open with six runs in the ninth. Chet Lemon hit a two-run single, Trammell and More-land got RBI-singles, Torey Lovullo had a sacrifice fly and pitcher Paul Mirabella's error enabled another run to score. Milwaukee scored in the third on Robin Yount's single. Gus Polidor hit a two-run single in the sixth off Gibson. Ryan checks Jays on one hit I v The Associated Press , The older Nolan Ryan gets, the harder he becomes to hit. No one knows how it is possible, only that it is true. He proved it again Sunday,' getting within two , outs of his record sixth no-hitter. Ryan came close for the second time this season Noan before Toron- Rari to's Nelson nyan Liriano spoiled his bid with a triple in the ninth inning. Ryan finished . with his 10th career one-hitter and struck out 12 as the Texas Rangers beat the Blue Jays, 4-1. Ruben Sierra hit a two-run homer, his fourth, in the first inning and Steve Buechele hit a two-run double in the fourth for Texas. A's 2, Angels 0 Mike Moore and two relievers combined on a three-hitter as Oakland won its fifth straight game. " Moore, 2-1, gave up three singles to Claudell Washington in 7 2-3 in- American League nings. Rick Honeycutt pitched one inning and Dennis Eckersley got the final out for his league-leading sixth save. Orioles 3, Twins 0 Rookie Bob Milacki pitched a three-hitter as Baltimore beat visiting Minnesota and stayed in first place in the AL East. Mickey Tettleton homered in the second inning off Shane Rawley, 1-2. Royals 10, Red Sox 0 Bo Jackson hit a two-run homer and Charlie Leibrandt pitched a five-hitter as Kansas City completed its first three-game sweep in Boston since 1971. Yankees 5, Indians 0 Andy Hawkins pitched two-hit ball for 7 2-3 innings and visiting New York beat Cleveland for the first time in six games this year. Mariners 10, White Sox 6 Scott Bradley had a three-run double in the first inning and later added an RBI-double for Seattle. Where there's Will, there's still no way The Associated Press Even the best game of his career wasn't enough to make Will Clark happy. Clark went 5-for-5 against the Los Angeles Dodgers but the San Francisco Giants still lost 7-6 in 10 innings when Atlee Ham-maker walked in the winning run. "It's definitely the toughest loss to National League Will Clark take, because we kept battling and scratching out there and still came up short," Clark said after the first five-hit game of his career. "It wasn't even a hit that won the game. It was a walk. So that typifies how flaky a game it was." Clark, whose previous best was a pair of four-hit games, had three hits off Dodgers starter Fernando Valen-zuela, including a run-scoring double in the first inning. He tied the game at 5-5 with a leadoff homer in the seventh against Alejandro Pena, then put the Giants ahead in the eighth with an RBI-single off Ray Searage. Braves 9, Padres 4 Dale Murphy had the second six- RBI game of his career, hitting a two-run homer in the third, a two-run single in the sixth and a two-run double in the eighth. Pirates 6, Phillies 4 Bobby Bonilla's two-run homer in the eighth inning, capped Pittsburgh's rally from a four-run deficit as Logan Easley won his first game since April 20, 1987. Expos 9, Cards 3 Spike Owen had three hits and drove in three runs and Hubie Brooks homered as the Expos snapped a three-game losing streak. Mets 4, Cubs 2 Kevin McReynolds hit a two-run, go-ahead homer in the eighth inning as New York won despite Andre Dawson's 300th career home run. Astros 5, Reds 2 Glenn Davis hit a two-run homer as Houston maintained its domination of Danny Jackson. Jackson, 14, allowed nine hits and four runs in seven innings. He has lost his last four starts and lost all four of his career starts against the Astros, the only NL team he hasn't beaten since being traded to the Reds before the 1988 season. Timbers From Page 1B scoring position. Pinch-hitter Gary Schoonover then "Mowed with a sharp single to center, scoring both runners and giving the Braves a 64 lead. - In the bottom of the 12th, Keitges 'made it 6-5 by slamming a one-out homer to right-center. Chris Howard and Ernest Castro "made things interesting by slapping consecutive singles. But two Braves relievers retired Razook and pinch-Jutter Jeremy Matthews to thwart the comeback bid. Although one wouldn't have been surprising. Especially after what happened in the eighth. Burlington clung to a 2-1 lead, but Razook slammed a two-out, two-run homer to give Wausau the lead. It was short-lived, though, as Nick Felix, Wausau's expected bullpen ace, blew his first save opportunity of the year. The flame-throwing lefty gave up a leadoff single to Bob Saccomanno in the ninth, then threw consecutive wild pitches, putting Saccomanno on third base with no outs. The next batter followed with an RBI-single, scoring Saccomanno and paving the way for Wausau's fateful finish. Still, the Timbers had a chance to save Felix, who left the game at the start of the 12th after working three innings. Wausau had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the 11th, but only scored one run matching Burlington's output in the top.

HOORAY NOW IS THE TIME TO CHECK YOUR TIRES FOR SAFETY "It's Just very frustrating to accept a loss like this," said Jones, who saw 12 runners stranded on the base-paths including eight in scoring position. "There were just too many things that happened throughout the course of the game where we had opportunities but didn't capitalize," said Jones. Common baseball knowledge says that missed opportunities are a direct cause of severe frustration. Sunday afternoon, it showed. iWausau trainer OK after Friday collapse ; By Dean Witter . Wausau Daily Herald I The Wausau Timbers breathed a collective sigh of relief on Saturday when they found out that their trainer Bob Burton was once again in ' good condition. I On Friday, Burton collapsed on the field during an afternoon practice session and was taken by ambulance to the Wausau Hospital Center. I The 23-year-old Burton was held overnight at ; the hospital, where he was put under observation. ' Tests showed that nothing serious caused the collapse and Burton who reportedly was work-' ing long hours without much sleep or proper nutri-I tion was released Friday afternoon. "We gave him a few days off," said Timbers' ' General Manager Jack Roeder. "It apparently was just mental and physical exhaustion. He'll be back with us on Wednesday." ' Coaches of the Burlington Braves said Sunday that slugger Mark Davis' knee injury wasn't as ! serious as previously thought. ' Davis, who leads the Midwest League in home ' runs with five, twisted it while slipping on home Timbers' notes plate in Burlington's 13-3 win over the Timbers on Saturday. Davis who was taken off the field in an ambulance was treated and released late Saturday afternoon at the Wausau Hospital Center. "His knee was partially dislocated, but it's back in place now," Burlington trainer Paul Egins said. "He suffered some strained ligaments. We're going to put him on some light rehab and we hope to have him back in a couple of weeks." After drawing just 110 fans in Thursday night's homestand opener, the Timbers attracted crowds of 1,512 on Friday, 1,035 on Saturday and 1,026 on Sunday. Entering Sunday's contest, Wausau was fifth in the Midwest League in average attendance, drawing 926 a game. The weekend series brings Wausau's total season attendance to 4,728 after five home dates. That's a good start for the Timbers, who expect to finish below last year's total of 55,255. I Lifesavcr GT4 All Season Economy Radial No seasonal tire changeover with all-weather tread design.

"And that's actual attendance, not total attendance, which is usually a bit higher." The Timbers open a four-game series with the Clinton Giants tonight in a 7 p.m. contest at Ath- lctic Psrkt Righthander Scott Taylor (1-1, 5.00 ERA) will start on the mound for Wausau. Here's evidence to prove that early-season averages aren't indicative of a baseball player's potential: Timbers left fielder Ernest Castro raised his batting average 143 points in Sunday's game. Castro, who entered hitting .115 (8-for-31), went 5-for-5 with three runs scored against the Braves. A similar situation occured after Wausau's 14-0 romp over Burlington on Friday. Second baseman Tim Stargell entered that game hitting .211. But a 4-for-5 performance hiked his average 93 points to .304. Stargell's currently hitting .258 after an 0-for-5 day Sunday.
