Carter struck out and Mitch Williams relieved a little earlier than usual. He gave up a sacrifice fly to John Olerud, and then the Phillies started to hold their breaths. Wild Thing was at it again. Williams walked Alomar on five pitches and then did nothing as the Toronto second baseman easily stole second base. With Fernandez still batting, Alomar blundered badly, trying to steal third with two outs. Williams saw Alomar breaking off the base and threw to third in plenty of time for Hollins, who tagged Alomar for the inning's final out "It was a big mistake on my part and I take the blame," said Alomar, who had been 16-0 in postseason steal attempts. "After I did it, I saw it was a big mistake." The Phillies were stunned when Alomar took off for third, using his heart instead of his head. "I was shocked," Duncan said. "I don't know what he was thinking. You never get thrown out at third base for the third out of the inning." "He has a green light," manager Cito Gaston said. "Normally, he wouldn't do that." Williams, given a break, then finished for the save, even though he walked Fernandez on four pitches leading off the ninth. TORONTO The Toronto Blue Jays are supposed to be the team with quick minds, the ones with loads of postseason experience. Not Sunday night This time, it . was Philadelphia that kept its cool, waiting for key walks and big hits. The result was a 6-4 victory in Game 2, sending the teams back to ' Philadelphia tied 1-1 when the Series resumes Tuesday night. The Blue Jays didn't get clutch hitting or pitching after doing many of the right things in their 8-5 victory in Game 1. Normally steady Roberto Alomar also made a huge mistake in the eighth inning when he tried to steal third base with two outs and was thrown out The key inning for the Phillies came in the third, when they scored five runs off loser Dave Stewart. Lenny Dykstra and Mariano Duncan demonstrated patience with leadoff walks, and John Kruk put Philadelphia ahead 1-0 with a single. "We could see Stewart was struggling with his control," Duncan said. "Against a pitcher like Dave Stewart, you have to take a c - """" Philadelphia reliever Mitch Williams celebrates on the mound after recording the save Sunday night against Toronto.

And one out later, Jim Eisenreich hit a three-run homer over the right field wall. "Dave Stewart doesn't get rattled, but everyone has a bad inning once in a while," said Eisenreich, who hit an 0-2 pitch. "I knew we had a chance to do some damage." This type of thing is not supposed to happen to Stewart in the postseason, not on 0-2 pitches. He's 8-0 in the AL playoffs, although he was 2-3 in the World Series for Oakland. "It definitely wasn't one pitch," Stewart said. "It was the two batters I walked, the next two batters who got soft hits off me, then the biggie." Terry Mulholland, the Phillies' winner, pitched effectively for 5 2-3 innings, allowing three runs and seven hits before the bullpen finished. Mulholland gave up a two-run homer to Joe Carter in the fourth that made it 5-2 and an RBI double to Fernandez in the sixth. "He pitched his heart and soul out," said Dykstra, whose homer catches for 712 yards this season. The 49ers (3-3) were ahead 17-16 after Steve Young's TD pass to Brent Jones in the third quarter. But Tony Casillas recovered Marc Logan's fumble at the 49ers' 39 and Irvin caught his TD pass. Eddie Murray added his fourth field goal in the final period for the Cowboys (4-2). "We made some big mistakes," said Seifert. "but I'll say that Dallas is all it's publicized to be." Steelers 37, Saints 14 At Pittsburgh, the Saints were manhandled and hande'd their first defeat of the season as the Steelers (4-2) won their fourth straight.

When the Dallas Cowboys receiver looked across the field at Texas Stadium on Sunday, he NFL Roundup saw Jerry Rice, the NFL's premier receiver.

Irvin did just that with a career-high 12 receptions for 168 yards, including a 36-yard scoring pass,, as the Cowboys beat the 49ers 26-17 in a rematch of the NFC title game 10 months ago. "For me to have this type of game against this type of team and with Jerry Rice on that other sideline, yes, that's something I'll go home and toast to tonight" Into said. There's no doubt These are the guys you see as your peers. Jerry Rice, probably the best even 111 see him in Hawaii (at the Pro Bowl) and well talk about who had a better game." Irvin, now in his sixth season, never had a better game. Just his presence, though, was enough to unsettle the 49ers. "You don't want to overplay any one of their players," coach George Seifert said. "You can't double-cover Irvin, because that opens other things up. Give Michael the credit. He's aTieck of a player." Another terrific player delivered the ball. Troy Aikman was 21-for-35 for 243 yards and was not intercepted.
