SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1990 THE SUN do SPORTS 3B BASEBALL Keys capture title with 7-5 victory Olson eager to put elbow to the test 0 t 'f I .If tl f it n 4 By Kent Baker Sun Staff Corespondent FREDERICK In their second year of existence, the Frederick Keys won the Carolina League championship, rallying last night to defeat the Klnston Indians In the fifth and deciding game. 7-5, at Grove Stadium. Tim Holland hit a three-run homer against previously unbeaten Oscar Munoz to give the Keys the lead In the sixth inning, and they held on behind scoreless relief pitching by Zach Kerr and Todd Stephan. The result touched off a wild on-fleld celebration, as players doused each other with champagne while sprawled on the pitching mound. "We were a little concerned when we fell behind 5-0 in the third inning!, but we knew this was do or die," said Keys leadoff man Tony Beasley, who had a double and triple and scored three runs. "But we kept pecking away and things started happening. When It got crucial, we came through, and everybody pitched In." Manager Wally Moon said: "You couldn't write a better script than coming from five down to win. Everybody had a good time. This was baseball like It was meant to be." The Keys committed four errors In the first two innings and fell behind, 2-0. then Tim Costo. the Cleveland Indians' No. 1 draft choice, hit a Ailing Clemens says he'll pitch with pain BOSTON (AP) Roger Clemens, vowing not to "leave my teammates stranded" down the stretch despite a sore shoulder, said last night that he hoped to miss only one or two starts with the Boston Red Sox. ! "Hopefully, I'll have three or four starts left," said Clemens, who suffered severe shoulder pain after losing to the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday. There's a lot to be had this season. You don't get chances that often." Dr. Arthur Pappas. the team physician and an orthopedic specialist, said the pitcher's muscles, ligaments and tendons appeared healthy, but said he was unable to assess one ligament because of pain that prevented Clemens from holding his arm In a certain position. Tendinitis, I think that's what we're dealing with, but It's an extreme case," Pappas said. "He pitched with it before." three-run homer off Frederick starter Chuck Rlccl In the third. Munoz was 7-0 this season and pitched eight scoreless innings in the opener of this five-game series, leaving after yielding a two-run homer to Tyrone Klngwood in the ninth. The Keys went on to win, 6-4. He looked untouchable again until three straight doubles by Beasley, Ricky Gutierrez and Klngwood produced the first two Keys runs. "I had a short meeting with the offense on the bench," said Moon. They were being tentative. I told them to let it rip." Beasley Ignited the big rally In the sixth with a triple and scored on Klngwood's single. Melvln Wearing also singled and Holland followed one out later with a first-pitch homer , over the left-field fence. That was after Kerr 1 4-7 as a starter but a loser in Game 2 of this series escaped a bases-loaded, two-out Jam in the top of the sixth. "I had to go right at them with my best pitch Ichangeup," he said. "I came into this game 0-5 lifetime against Klnston, but I'll take this one over all five." Moon said, "You can't get out of a much bigger situation than that" The Keys overcame 16 errors in the series to bring the Baltimore Orioles organization Its second Carolina League title In 10 years. Hagerstown was the league champion in 1981, its first year In the system. "We were about 3 and 20 In spring training," said Holland. "We weren't too sure how good we were. But after we won the first half, we knew we'd be In it." Today in baseball 1905 The Pittsburgh Pirate stranded 18 runners in an 8-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, setting an NL record tor men left on base. 1955 The Brooklyn Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Braves, 10-2, to clinch the NL pennant with a 17-game lead. 1958 The Pittsburgh Pirates' Roberto Clemente tied a major-league record by hitting three triples in a 4-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. 1965 Bert Campanerls of the Kansas City Athletics played all nine positions but had to retire after a ninth-Inning collision with Ed Klrkpatrlck of the California Angels. The Angels won, 6-3, In 13 Innings. - 1972 Ferguson Jenkins of the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-3, for his 20th victory of the season. It marked the sixth straight year that Jenkins had won 20 or more games in a season. 1985 Cincinnati's Pete Rose inserted himself into the lineup when the Chicago Cubs named right-hander Reggie Patterson as the starting pitcher. Rose singled in the first inning and again In the fifth inning, tying Ty Cobb with 4,191 career hits. Today's birthday Don Aase, 36. By Peter Schmuck Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Gregg Olson was ready and waiting for a chance to get back into the thick of things last night, 10 days after he was forced out of action with a sore right elbow. He had thrown twice in the previous four days and reported no pain, which had to be encouraging news for a team that depends heavily on his ability to shut down the opposition in the late innings. Manager Frank Robinson said he was confident that Olson could return to his regular role in short relief, but he couldn't say that the Orioles missed him. There was only one late-lnnlng lead to protect during Olson's absence the one-run advantage that Curt Schilling couldn't hold Wednesday night Olson had to be relieved that the soreness apparently was not a sign of any serious elbow damage. But he'll have to throw several times in succession without pain to prove that the inflammation was a onetime occurrence. "It feels normal," he said. The last time I threw, it felt fine, but it has been a week and a half since I've really thrown, so It's hard to tell how well I threw." Kevin Hickey had two days to think about the grand slam he gave Orioles notes up to Seattle Mariners second baseman Harold Reynolds on Wednesday night This is the way he remembers it "I walked one guy intentionally and then I was Just trying to be too fine with Omar Vizquel and walked him, too," Hickey said. Then I Just wanted to get ahead on the count to Reynolds. It was a fastball. I left it up a little. He didn't hit It that well, but he hit It well enough." The four runs drove Hlckey's ERA up to 5.16. Pitcher Dora Taylor, who was the player to be named later In the deal that sent right-hander Jay Tibbs to the Pittsburgh Pirates, was in uniform for last night's game. Taylor, the 44th player to wear an Orioles uniform this year, will wear No. 46. General manager Roland Hemond was sitting by the telephone last night, getting periodic reports on the progress of minor-league playoff games. The Frederick Keys and Rochester Red Wings both had a chance to clinch their respective league titles. No. 1 draft choice Mike Mussina was on the mound for the Red Wings. First baseman Randy Milligan has been swinging a bat to test his separated shoulder, but yesterday he again reported no improvement in the area, leaving room to wonder If the club soon will order more extensive testing. The Maryland Instructional League will open today when the Orioles minor-leaguers play Liberty University in a doubleheader at Frederick's Harry M. Grove Stadium. The schedule calls for the Orioles to play 36 games against 14 area colleges, today through Oct 7. The Orioles wives tallied up the results of their Cruise for Kids and silent auction and announced they had raised $38,000 for the Johns Hopkins Children's center. The Bay Lady was sold out for a dinner cruise. - California Angels starter Mark Langston left Thursday's game against the New York Yankees with a sore lower back. He said his back still was stiff yesterday, but still is scheduled to start Tuesday night in Anaheim. ,. , File this one in the baseball oddities section. Angels pitcher Bob McClure walked a batter he didn't even face. T McClure left the game with a 2-0 count on Bill Ripken. Mike Fetters came on in relief and Joe Orsulak came on as a pinch hitter. Fetters completed the walk, but It- was charged to McClure, who had not thrown a pitch to Orsulak. Strange but true.
