C6 THI HARTFORD COURANTs ThonJoy, April 21, 1988 Britsox lose to Senators, drop to 1 -9 By ROBERTO GONZALEZ Courant Staff Writer NEW BRITAIN It was the same old song for the New Britain Red Sox Wednesday night in their 3-2 loss to the Harrisburg Senators at Beehive Stadium. The Britsox wasted yet another fine pitching performance. This time the victim was pitcher Luis Vasquez (0-3). The Britsox are 1-9. Vasquez had 10 strikeouts, no walks, gave up four hits, and after the first inning, retired 20 straight batters before giving up a single in the eighth. Vasquez said he wasn't worried in the later innings that his pitching performance might be wasted. "I knew everyone was going to try their best to win," he said. "He was outstanding after the first inning," Red Sox Manager Dave Holt said. "We are just not getting enough clutch hitting we hit some balls hard, but they made some nice plays." The Red Sox managed only four hits. The winning pitcher was Larry Melton (3-0), who in seven innings gave up four hits, walked four and struck out four. Bob Russell got his first save of the season. Harrisburg (7-4) scored all three of its runs in the first inning. After the first Harrisburg batter, Jeff Cook, struck out, Dimas Gutierrez looped a single to right field and moved to second on a single by Sam Khalifa. Khalifa and Gutierrez were then brought home by a double off the left-field wall by Ron Johns. Johns moved to third on an error by third baseman Todd Pratt on a John Rigos grounder and then scored on a wild pitch to give Harrisburg a 3-0 lead after the first inning. The Red Sox responded with a run in the second inning when Ed Zam-brano singled, stole second base, and was then driven in by a Tim McGee single. In the third inning, Palmer blooped a single to right field and advanced to third on a single by Rob Zambrano. Zambrano was gunned down at second when he tried to stretch the hit into a double. Palmer then scored on a wild pitch by Melton, making the score 3-2. The Red Sox blew an opportunity to go ahead when left fielder La-verne Jackson hit into a double play with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning. Holt is looking for reinforcements. He thought he had seen it all last year when he saw 35 different players make their way through New Britain, but 1988 has been more of the same. First, catcher Greg Bochesa was hit in the jaw by a pitch. He's out 2-3 weeks. Next, shortstop Chris Moritz needed 13 stitches in his right hand after taking the ball off his hand while trying to bunt. Meanwhile, first baseman-designated hitter Tary Scott quit the team. McGee joined the team in Wil-liamsport last weekend to add some bench strength, but after first baseman Jose Birriel hurt his ankle in Tuesday night's game with Harrisburg, McGee will most likely start behind the plate for a week while Pratt moves to first. The Britsox have only one backup player on the roster, excluding pitchers. Holt blamed the base for causing Birriel's injury. Birriel slipped on the base, causing his ankle to twist. "It was a Rawlings base," Holt said. "I've seen too many injuries with that type of base. When it gets a little wet, it's easy to slio on it. " Flyers: The boom turned to a thud Continued from Page CI lowed far too many breakaways this season. Age is another problem. Mark Howe is 32 and Kjell Samuelsson is 29. Beyond that, the Flyers will return Doug Crossman, who is practically begging to be traded, and Kerry Huffman, a rookie who missed most of the last 20 games due to a thigh injury. The Flyers need a strong, solid defenseman, the kind willing to send a few bodies to the ice and into the boards for entering the crease. There was no such animal on the team this season, except maybe forward Dave Brown, who got a long suspension when he cross-checked Tomas Sandstrom of the New York Rangers. Offensively, the Flyers need a reliable scoring star. Rick Tocchet and Murray Craven both had 30 goals seasons, while Brian Propp, Peter Zezel, Scott Mellanby and Ilkka Sini-salo finished with 20 or more. Poulin and Howe just missed the list with 19. While the totals are impressive, there was no one reliable, quick-wristed scorer, no one the Flyers I don't see any reason for any changes. We finished with the same number of points as the Caps, and they beat us in overtime. " GM Bobby Clarke could look to for that clinching goal. Kerr should be effective by the start of next season. The Flyers have several offensive stars playing in the minors, and any one of them may be called up next season. Just who the Flyers will trade to improve the team isn't certain. Sini-salo and Zezel were both rumored to be on the trading block during the slump, but Clarke's moves are hard to predict. Clarke has some fine players he can part with, providing he gets the compensation the team needs. Despite his protests to the contrary, look for some changes on the Flyers' roster. Lancellotti (2), Dayett hit homers in Japan Associated Press TOKYO Rick Lancellotti, formerly of the San Diego Padres, hit a pair of two-run homers to lead the Hiroshima Toyo Carp to a 4-3 Japanese baseball victory over the Yomi-uri Giants Wednesday. Lancellotti has three home runs this season. The Nippon Ham Fighters beat the Kintetsu Buffaloes 5-4 as Brian Dayett, formerly with the Chicago Cubs, hit a solo homer. Dayett is from Deep River, Conn. Greg Wells, formerly with the Minnesota Twins, drove in two runs with a pair of singles, leading the Hankyu Braves to a 4-3 victory over the Nankai Hawks. Irishman captures Belgian cycling race Associated Press WEVELGEM, Belgium Ireland's Sean Kelly beat four rivals in a close sprint finish Wednesday to win the 158-mile Ghent-Wevelgem. Pre-race favorite Guido Bontempi of Italy, twice a winner of the race, fell in the early stages of the event and had to drop out. sedy Announces A New Standard In Customer Satisfaction, Speedy introduces the 110 satisfaction guarantee the only guarantee of it's kind for muffler and brake repairs.
