THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1988 THE SUN f SPOHIS3C THE 1988 WORLD SERIES COLLEGES Dodgers try to wrap around Hershiser By Tim Kurkjian Sun Staff Correspondent OAKLAND, Calif. With a chance to wrap up the World Series tonight, the Los Angeles Dodgers start exactly whom they want: Orel Hershiser. How high is their confidence with him. a man who has allowed three earned runs In his last 92 innings? "How high is high?" said manager Tom Lasorda. "I don't know how Notes high that Is. All I know is that we've got a great pitcher going for us." The Dodgers count on Hershiser so heavily, not starting him when he is ready doesn't make sense. Just having him out there gives the Dodgers the feeling they're better than they are. "He exudes confidence," said Dodgers second baseman Steve Sax. "He works quickly. He talks to the infielders. He is the most dominant pitcher I've ever played with, he and Fernando Valenzuela, You put the ball in his hands, and it's a shutout. He's been unbelievable. He's as perfect a pitcher as you're going to find." Hershiser doesn't seem to be caught up in all his rave reviews. ' "Breaking Don Drysdale's streak, the back-to-back shutouts in the playoffs and World Series haven't sunk in," he said. "After the season, I'll sit back and think about it. But I haven't thought about it during the Series." Others have, naturally. The Dodgers say they can't lose with Hershiser. "You can feel extremely good when your ace Is on the mound," said Oakland Athletics DH Dave Parker. "I know we feel that way when Dave) Stewart is out there. We have a devastating offensive ballclub. If he can master us again, as he did in Los Angeles, they have a right to feel that way." Parker was back in the starting lineup last night, this time as Oakland's starting DH. Parker didn't start Tuesday night against Dodgers left-hander John Tudor. Parker said he is swinging the bat very well. "I've got a lot of good years left in me," he said before the game. "I like to excel this time of year, and I don't like to embarrass myself on national television." Parker went 0-for-5 last night In the A's 4-3 loss. This is the World Series? The Dodgers started a lineup last night that together hit 36 home runs this year, six fewer than Jose Canseco.

This is the first World Series that has had two game-ending home runs. Gibson brought the Dodgers from one run down in Game 1 , and Mark McGwire broke a tie in Game 3. McGwire's homer came off reliever Jay Howell. Howell allowed only one home run to Cincinnati's Paul O'Neill during the regular season. Right-handed hitters had 110 at-bats against Howell during the regular season. And no home runs. Three Dodgers were caught stealing last night: Heep, Mike Scioscia and Griffin.

Annual What began as a one-time trip to the Soviet Union for the Johns Hopkins University baseball team last spring is developing into a baseball exchange between that country and the United States. The D.I. Mendeleyev Institute of Chemical Technology baseball team became a part of that exchange, as it wound up a two-week Baltimore stay at a farewell dinner last night. The visit included trips to New York and Washington and three games against the Johns Hopkins varsity. Once the media attention eased after the first game, the Soviet players relaxed and absorbed all the baseball information they could gather. The players were extremely Wade says rumors make WADE, from 1C the team to the NCAA tournament. He has continued to bring in good players. I will do everything in my power to help the basketball program continue to be successful." Though Perkins supported Wade, he said the third-year coach would be evaluated on an ongoing basis, like any other athletic department employee. Wade's contract, for an estimated $85,000 a year, expires after the 1 990-9 1 season. Perkins said Wade, like all Maryland coaches, would be judged on three criteria: Bringing in players who could compete In the classroom as well as on the court. Not doing anything to cause embarrassment to the university. Winning a fair share of games. "I think progress Is important." Perkins said. "But you don't measure progress by wins and losses alone. We're still an academic Institution." Asked if he was worried about the Maryland program, from which three players have transferred, two lost eligibility and one redshirted himself since the end of last season, Perkins said. "We have concerns about that. He Wade has concerns like any other coach would. "What we're doing is working with Bob Wade to make sure these kinds of things don't happen again. We're working, talking, communicating. It's time for us to move on. Bob Wade has a basketball team to prepare. We've had enough distractions over the past two years . . . Right now, he hasn't done anything wrong." Wade, as has been his posture since the wave of defections began in April, said yesterday he doesn't think his program should be Judged Tires are covered tor ipeotod mileage and nH tw adjusted on I pro-rata basis using current pnees Warranty invalid should bres show wear due to imbalance, mechanical detect, misalignment, or deUwale abuse Tirts used on trucks or commercial vetvefes are not covered by (he umned treaowear warranty :mBm l I ", MERCHANTS LIMITED WARRANTY MERCHANT'S I TIRE.G.

Now, discussions are under way for an annual exchange of baseball coaches to assist the Soviets In learning the game. In addition, sports administrator Rector Sarki-sov spoke of a proposed United States tour for the Soviet national team next spring, with one of the games to be played at Johns Hopkins. Baseball also was the highlight of the Soviet party's two-day trip to New York, which included a visit to Yankee Stadium. Hall of Fame pitch solely on the number of players who have left. "We have to respect their wishes," he said. "Kids, like adults, make decisions that are best for them." Wade said the rumors regarding his contract could hurt recruiting.

Souvenirs were distributed. ' The United States visit turned out to be especially important for the Mendeleyev catcher. During the summer, he had written a letter to his hero, catcher Gary Carter of the New York Mets. The Soviet youngster said he had not heard from Carter, and when this was relayed to Carter, the Mets catcher said he had sent some things, but they had been misdirected.
