The money was used to pay Janszen's lawyer, Merlyn D. Shiverdecker, for representing the former bodybuilder in a federal tax evasion case. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer quoted unidentified sources as saying. Janszen, 31, has claimed he was the middleman between the Cincinnati Reds manager and Franklin, Ohio, restaurateur Ron Peters, who federal authorities claim handled $1 million in bets from Rose, baseball's all-time hits leader. The check, signed by Rose's lawyer and agent. Reuven Katz of Cincinnati,- was deposited in the bank account of Shiver-decker on March 22, 1988, The Plain Dealer taA.

"I had to run off picks and go to the basket to make him work," Harper said. "If you can run him around early, maybe he'll tire out a little in the second half. He's such a great athlete." Jordan scored 14 points in the second half, but only four of them in the fourth quarter.' He committed seven turnovers. "We really made a lot of errors today," Jordan said.

Rose associates Saturday also characterized the $10,000 check as a loan, but investigators say they can find no written agreement that spells out terms for repayment of the money or interest. "The thing that's interesting about this $10,000 is that if Pete made a loan to Janszen, why isn't there anything to show how it's got to be paid back?" the newspaper quoted a lawyer involved in the case as saying. "Pete is represented by competent, sophisticated people who would not give $10,000 away without some kind of written instrument as security." Janszen is serving a six-month sentence in a Cincinnati halfway house for evading U.S. income taxes on the sale of steroids. Janszen has claimed in interviews with baseball and federal investigators that Rose owes him as much as $40,000 in gambling debts. Rose and his associates dispute the claims. .

"I got my arms extended and hit the ball out." "He hits a lot of balls to right-field," Reds Manager Pete Rose said. "Bedrosian throws 'real good. It was away and he hit it where you're supposed to hit it." "I didn't do the job again," said Bedrosian, who gave up a game-winning home run for the third time this season. "I felt I was throwing good. That's what makes it so tough." Rob Dibble, who pitched two scoreless innings, improved to 3-0 and John Franco pitched the ninth for his eighth save in eight opportunities. Trailing 3-1, the Phillies scored twice in the bottom of the sixth. Tommy Herr singled and Von Hayes followed with his second homer of the game and seventh of the season. It was the eighth the possibility of going back to Chicago with a 2-0 lead, and it really motivated us. Myself, maybe I was over-motivated. Maybe that's why I made too many errors. But we realize now that we can beat this ballclub." Larry Nance scored eight points during a 13-6 third quarter flurry that turned the game in Cleveland's favor. Nance said a halftime talk with Coach Lenny Wilkens pumped him up. "He told me to stop hesitating on my shot.

Barlett Giamatti when the Reds are in New York Wednesday and Thursday. "I think that's the furthest from the truth ... I've been given no indication that's going to happen," Rose said. "I know a couple of people who are going to be interviewed next Thursday at the commissioner's office." Rose declined to say who those individuals are. "Realistically, how will it be possible for me to go to the commissioner's office and not be spotted?" he said. "The commissioner could say 'Meet me on the moon, and I'd try to get a ticket. My people have told me net to worry about it." "They're doing a thorough investigation," Rose said. "I have no idea how thorough they're trying to be ... I wish it would have ended two months ago. I don't know what they're doing. I don't know how many people they have to talk to. How many people are in this country?" Davis Jolt Phils time Hayes has hit two homers in a game.
