The Jackson Sun, Jackson, Tenn., Thursday. May 17, 1990 3D Lineup change sparks Cards Associated Press The St. Louis Cardinals shook up their batting order. Then they shook up the Houston Astros. Ozzie Smith, replacing Vince Coleman as the Cardinals' leadoff hitter, had two hits, stole a base and scored three runs Wednesday in a 10-6 win over the slumping Astros. Coleman, moved to the No. 8 slot, hit his first home run since last September a two-run shot off Jim Deshaies that highlighted a seven-run fifth inning for the Cardinals. St. Louis manager Whitey Her-, zog shuffled his batting order in "an attempt to revive his team's anemic offense, which was ninth in the league in runs scored. "We've tried so many different things and this may not be the end of it," Smith said. "But maybe this is something we can hold on to for a while." ; Herzog indicated the Smith-Coleman switch would continue for at least one more game. That didn't please Coleman, who has been a leadoff hitter his entire career. "It's nothing I look forward to," Coleman said. "I don't see ; myself as an eighth-place hitter. I'll just go out there and try to do ' the job." . Willie McGee had a pair of RBI doubles for the Cardinals, while Todd Zeile drove in two runs with a double. Bryn Smith of the Cardinals had a no-hitter and an 8-0 lead before giving up a leadoff homer in the sixth to Rafael Ramirez. i Harris to sign CFL contract ' CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) After a series of contract-talk stops, ; starts and sidesteps that matched his best moves on the field, former " West Virginia quarterback Major , Harris is heading north to Canada. ; All that's left is for him to sign on : the dotted line. Harris and the British Co-. lumbia Lions both say they are close to signing a con- ; tract that would bring the Heis- man Trophy finalist to the Ca- : nadian Football League. Major Harris "My agent is finalizing it with them now," Harris said Wednesday from Pittsburgh. "I'm just sitting tight." Although both sides said the deal ; isn't completed, Harris left little ; doubt that the Los Angeles Raiders, ; who picked him in the 12th round of ' the NFL draft, are out of the run-; ning. Chauffeur supports Capitals WASHINGTON (AP) - The chauffeur of a limousine in which a 17-year-old woman allegedly was . sexually attacked by four members of the Washington Capitals ap-" peared Wednesday before a grand jury investigating the case. The driver, Whitney Valentine, told WRC-TV there was no indication that the woman was forced into the car and that they drove around , the corner from the Capital Centre to another bar. "Neil Sheehy suggested that he " wanted to stop there for a moment before we, in essence, went back to the Capital Centre. She stated that - she . . . she said 'I think I want to get out," and they moved over so she could get out. '' "I opened the door, helped her out " of the car. She turned around and ' said, 'Thanks, guys' and she left." Valentine had not previously been questioned by any law enforcement authorities in connection with the ' case, his attorney, Stuart Blatt of ' Baltimore, told WUSA-TV. Blatt, who was not in his office Wednesday afternoon, added that Valentine was appearing voluntari- - ly before the grand jury. .' The four players being investigated have been identified in by law enforcement sources as right wing Dino Ciccarelli, 30; left wing Geoff Courtnall, 27; and defensemen Neil ' Sheehy, 30, and Scott Stevens, 26. No charges have been filed in the case, " and all four have denied the allegations. " - ! , u.., i': Ik NATIONAL The Astros scored two more runs in the inning on RBI singles by Ken Oberkfell and Craig Biggio. Smith (5-3) was lifted in the next inning after giving up a total of six hits and five runs. "It was great for five innings," he said. 'The last inning and two-thirds wasn't very good." Houston has lost six straight and nine of its last 10. "We're under pressure, and today it showed," Manager Art Howe said. "We just need to start playing baseball the way we can." Giants 4, Mets 3 At San Francisco, Kevin Mitchell's two-out homer in the 10th inning gave the Giants a three-game sweep. Mitchell's eighth homer of the season came off reliever Alejandro Pena (1-1). Mets starter Dwight Gooden had a three-hitter and a 3-0 lead until giving up a two-run homer to Will Clark in the eighth. Kevin Bass then tied it with a homer off reliever John Franco. New York took a 2-0 lead in the second on Mackey Sasser's RBI single and Kevin Elster's run-scoring double. Jeff Brantley (1-1), the Giants' fourth pitcher, got the victory by pitching a scoreless 10th inning. Phillies 6, Padre S At San Diego, Von Hayes hit a two-run homer and drove in four runs as the Phillies survived a ninth-inning rally. Trailing 6-3 entering the bottom of the ninth, the Padres pulled within one run on RBI singles by Phil Stephenson and Bip Roberts. But with runners on first and third, Tony Gwynn hit a hard one-hopper that shortstop Dickie Thon turned into a game-ending double play. The Phillies took a 3-0 lead in the first off Ed Whitson (3-2) on Von Hayes' homer and an RBI single by Charlie Hayes. . . '...AS V vr"" vv'" : mi wfiiiiliiiiifti "-"'"' . - .lit ,' 1 McGwire rallies A's past Indians Associated Press Associated Press Atlanta first baseman Dave Justice gets airborne to avoid Chicago's Ryne Sandberg in Wednesday's action. Sand-berg was awarded second on the play because of a balk. Len Dykstra had two doubles and a triple for Philadelphia, raising his league-leading average to .395. Braves 4, Cubs O At Atlanta, John Smoltz pitched a five-hitter for his first major league shutout. Smoltz (2-4) struck out nine, including hot-hitting Andre Dawson three times, and walked one for his first complete game of the season. He also had a single and drew a key walk in the Braves' three-run fifth. Ernie Whitt started the inning with a single and went to second on Alexis Infante's sacrifice. Smoltz fouled off five 3-2 pitches from Greg Maddux (4-2) before drawing a walk and then scored on Oddibe McDowell's two-run double. Maddux held the Braves hitless until Jim Presley doubled with two outs in the fourth. Rookie Dave Justice, called up earlier in the day from Class AAA Richmond, followed with an RBI double. Dodgers 3, Expos 2 At Los Angeles, Hubie Brooks won it with a ninth-inning homer after catcher Mike Fitzgerald gave him a second chance by dropping a foul pop. Fitzgerald dropped Brooks' pop foul on a 2-2 count. Brooks hit reliever Drew Hall's next pitch over the center field 1 fence to give the Dodgers a three-game sweep. The Expos had tied it with two outs in the top of the inning when Tim Wallach homered off Mike Morgan. Down to their last swing, Mark McGwire swung Oakland's momentum. McGwire hit a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday night that rallied Oakland over the Cleveland Indians 7-6 and ended the Athletics' four-game losing streak. Oakland's skid matched its longest in two seasons. It looked like the Athletics were headed toward matching their worst slide since June 1988 when the Indians brought in Doug Jones to pitch the ninth with a 6-5 lead. Jones had not allowed a run this season in 20 innings and had been successful in all 12 of his save opportunities. He also had not allowed a home run to a right-handed hitter since Larry Parrish connected on July 24, 1987, a span of 241 innings. But after Carney Lansford blooped a one-out single and Jose Canseco struck out, McGwire hit a changeup into the left-field seats for his 11th home run of the season. McGwire hit two homers and a double in the game. In the fourth inning, with Oakland trailing 4-0, Canseco, McGwire and Ron Hassey hit consecutive home runs. That was the third time in their history the Athletics have done it, the first time since 1980 at Cleveland. AMERICAN Whit Sox 4, Orioles 2 In Chicago, the White Sox won their fifth straight game as rookie Jerry Kutzler combined with two relievers on a five-hitter. The White Sox (19-10) are nine games over .500 for the first time since 1983. Their 14-3 record at Comiskey Park is baseball's best home mark. Brewers 13, Angels S In Milwaukee, Charlie O'Brien hit a bases-loaded triple during a six-run second inning as the Brewers roughed up Jim Abbott. Abbott (1-3) lasted only Vh innings, the shortest start of his career. Tigers 12, Rangers O In Texas, Jeff Robinson pitched a four-hitter and Cecil Fielder got three of Detroit's season-high 17 hits as the Tigers routed the injury-riddled Rangers. Tony Phillips also had three hits for the Tigers, including a two-run triple and a two-run single. Mariners 4, Blue Jays 2 In Toronto, Jeffrey Leonard's three-run homer sent Seattle over Toronto. Leonard hit his sixth home run of the season for a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning. Red Sox 7, Royals 1 In Kansas City, Mike Boddicker struck out 10 in eight innings and Ellis Burks homered, tripled and drove in three runs. Twins-Yankees, rain In New York, Andy Hawkins retired all 13 Minnesota batters before the game was rained out in the fifth inning. David West shut out the Yankees for four innings. The game will be made up as part of a twi-night doubleheader July 6. .assoffiedl C-flONDA MAY SALE Memorial Day Weekend Sale May 24-25-26 Prices drastically reduced on every motorcycle, ATV and Scooter in stock.
