le E7 i sancnez ignites Diamonds By bOUQ NEWHOFF Courier Sports Writer Ozzie Sanchez just may have awakened the dead Friday night at Waterloo Stadium. At least his prodigious, two-run homer toward the cemetery beyond the Tight-center field fence brought Waterloo and a crowd of 3,018 to life before the Diamonds went on to surge past Peoria, 7-4. It was an impressive victory for Waterloo that featured power at the plate and precision on the hill. The Diamonds trailed, 4-0, before Pedro Lopez yanked his second home run of the season over the left field wall in the third inning. Three relievers then handcuffed Peoria on two hits the rest of the night. The Chicago Cubs farm club had only three base runners the final six innings against Don Fowler, Chuck Ricci and Ron Morton. Bob Curnow's double scored Terry McDevitt, who opened the fourth inning with a single, to slice the deficit to 4-2 and Sanchez got Waterloo even in the sixth. Tim Holland, batting in the No. 3 spot in the lineup Friday, paid a dividend with three hits and started the sixth with one of them a leadoff single. Sanchez then sent a 1-1 pitch from Peoria reliever Jeff Massicotte off into the night for his 10th home run. Derek Stroud took over for Massicotte in the seventh and got two quick outs around a walk to J.D. Noland before the Diamonds strung four consecutive hits. McDevitt delivered an RBI single to Jeft-center. Holland smacked a Sandberg swats another as Cubs rock Phillies, 9-2 CHICAGO (AP) - Ryne Sandberg can't explain it. "I just go up to the plate, trying to hit line drives. I am not a home run hitter," he said Friday after homering for the fifth consecutive game and leading the Chicago Cubs over the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2, Sandberg has hit six home runs in his last five games and 10 in his last 15. He tied a club record set by Hack Wilson, who homered in five consecutive games from July 3-7, 1928. "Am I going to swing for home runs?" Sandberg asked out loud. "That's not my style. I'm swinging for line drives and I'm just lucky enough to be hitting the ball well enough so that the balls are going out. It just feels good now to go up there and see the ball well." Jerome Walton's two-run single and Sandberg's two-run homer led Chicago to a six-run fifth inning, knocking out Phillies starter Don Carman. Walton has hit in 22 consecutive games, the longest hitting streak for a Cub since Glenn Beckert had 26 In 1973. The Cubs are 30-9 this season in games started by a left-hander. "Sandberg and Walton are hot right now, and are carrying the ball DON'T PAY FOR AN ALIGNMENT UNLESS YOU NEED ONE Is your car pulling to the left or right? a Is your steering wheel off center?

Sanchez pounded a grounder up the middle that was knocked down, but not played, for a run-scoring single that chased Stroud. Jay Eddings was greeted by Curnow's second hit, a single, and he walked Ed Ricks to load the bases before getting the third out. Meanwhile, the Waterloo bullpen was nearly untouchable. Fowler fired three scoreless innings, then gave way to Ricci, who got the victory by pitching a scoreless seventh. Morton closed with two perfect innings. Wla............., n ai po a m I I I T.

Greg Maddux allowed four hits in seven innings to win for the eighth time in nine starts. Maddux, 14-3, struck out two and walked two before Steve Wilson and Calvin Schiraldi finished with combined two-hit relief. Carman, 3-12, walked seven in 4 V innings, giving up five hits and seven runs. He walked Sandberg with the bases loaded in the second to give Chicago the lead. "Last week in St. Louis, Carman was magnificent, giving up three hits in eight innings," Leyva said. "He was really outstanding because he challenged people. Today, he must have had ball three counts on 15 batters." Chicago, which won for the fifth time in seven games and the 15th time in 18 home games, made it 3-0 in the third when Andre Dawson, in a 3-for-47 slump, hit his 12th home run of the season and Domingo Ramos hit a run-scoring single. Philadelphia closed to within 3-2 in the fifth on Dickie Thon's RBI single and Steve Lake's sacrifice fly before the Cubs broke open the game with six runs in the bottom of the inning.

The opener of a three-game series between the division leaders drew 61,696. Moore, 15-6, won for the seventh time in eight decisions, getting his fifth complete game and second shutout. "At first, it felt like I hadn't been out there for a while. I felt almost too strong," said Moore, who hadn't pitched since last Saturday. "I tried to approach this like any other game, although I was pretty focused." Moore is 3-0 against California this year, holding the Angels to four runs in 31 innings over four starts. "He's one of the best pitchers we've faced," California manager Doug Rader said. "He's been a fine acquisition on Oakland's part." . Mike Witt, 7-10, remained winless in six starts since July 9. He gave up eights and five runs in seven innings. Walt Weiss singled in a run in the fifth to put Oakland ahead.

Kevin Mitchell added his major-league leading 37th homer as the 'Giants pounded out 13 hits against four Dodger pitchers. ''Going down to Phoenix, I learned the strike zone a little better. I ; learned that when you get one strike on you the pitcher's still got to throw it in there again and you don't have to swing at it if it's not over the plate," Williams said. "I think the No. 1 thing is confidence. He's got a lot more con f idence in himself now," Giants manager Roger Craig said. "He's more disciplined than he was. He doesn't swing at the bad breaking ball as often as he used to." San Francisco's Mike LaCoss, 7-7, coasted through seven innings, allowing seven hits in seven innings. Craig Lefferts go the last three outs. "As good as Williams looked tonight, he can look that bad for a week on breaking balls," loser Tim Belcher, 8-11, said. "He hasn't v learned to hit the breaking pitch yet, but he's learned to stay off them, making him a better hitter. "I'm a dead-fastball pitcher and he's a dead-fastball hitter. I went after him and didn't locate the fastball well. He did."
