2B Sports Wisconsin State Journal, Saturday, July 21, 1990 Packers don't like Majik's new offer A contract proposal that would pay quarterback Don Maj-kowski a reported $2.8 million annually was still too expensive, the Green Bay Packers said Friday. The five-year, $14 million proposal from Majkowski's agent, , Randy Vataha, brought him within about $1.7 million a year of the Packers offer, Packers !. Vice President of Football Opera- - tions Tom Braatz said. "It's still not palatable," Braatz told the Milwaukee Senti-. nel. "When you start out at the - universe and come down to the , moon, that isn't a very big deal. We're waiting for them to come down to earth." The Packers began the week with about 30 players unsigned, including Majkowski and the club's two top draftees in the recent National Football League draft, linebacker Tony Bennett and running back Darrell Thompson. The Packers open training camp Sunday at St. Norbert Col-. lege in DePere. Daniel storms to 65, leads by 2 Beth Daniel, spurred on when . playing partner Betsy King birdied the first two holes, shot a 7-under-par 65 and took a 2-stroke lead Friday in the first round of the Ladies Professional Golf Association Phar-Mor Youngstown Classic in Vienna, Ohio. King, who won the U.S. Women's Open last week, was tied with Dottie Mochrie and Myra Blackwelder at 67. Jill Briles, Diane Heinicke-Rauch, Colleen Walker and Juli Inkster were at 68, 3 shots off the lead. Daniel put together a birdie-eagle-birdie streak on the third through fifth holes of the 6,297-yard Squaw Creek Country Club course. She added birdies on Nos. 7, 11 and 12 during her bogey-free round. Chi Chi Rodriguez had the ; crowds, but Jim O'Hern had the lead after the first round of the Professional Golfers' Association Ameritech Senior Open in Acme, Mich. O'Hern had six birdies and no bogeys over the 6,679-yard Bear course at Grand Traverse Resort for a 66 and a 1-shot lead over Rodriguez and Don January. Redskins' Sanders in trouble with law Warrants were issued Friday ' in Houston charging Washington Redskins wide receiver Ricky Sanders with attempted murder Barrowman smashes - SEATTLE (AP) Mike Barrow-jnan emphatically stamped his approval on the Goodwill Games on Friday, breaking his world record in the 200-meter breaststroke. Not many people are sure about how to assess this event. Barrow--man had no doubts, smashing the .record by 1.36 seconds with a time of 2 minutes, 11.53 seconds. The 21-year-old from Potomac, Md., originally set the record at the 1989 Long Course Nationals and broke it at the '89 Pan Pacific Championships. "Coming into this meet, people expected me to drop the record a little bit, but I don't think anybody expected this," Barrowman said. "Someone asked me what I would like to happen and I said I was thinking around 2:12." The U.S. swim team was told to point toward the Goodwill Games as their big meet of the year. Barrowman obviously took those instructions to heart. - So did Kirk Stackle of Penasqui-tos, Calif., who also went under the old record. His time of 2:12.24 was the same as Sergio Lopez of Spain and both were awarded silver medals. Two races earlier, American Matt Biondi beat Tom Jager for the -first gold medal of the Goodwill .Games. Biondi, who won five gold medals at the Seoul Olympics two years ago, swam the fifth fastest time ever in beating his archrival in the 50-meter freestyle swimming. Biondi won in 22.10 seconds, and Jager was second in 22.31, safely off bus world record of 21.81. - It was only the seventh time Biondi has beaten Jager in 19 meetings in this event Janet Evans, a triple gold medalist in Seoul, won the 800 freestyle in a slow 8:28.47, easily out-swimming three East Germans.

" Will Carl Lewis beat Leroy Burrell in their first meeting of 1990? Is Randy Barnes ready for another world shot put record? As competition began at the games, a local newspaper observed: "For better or worse, we've got Goodwill Games II, the event nobody least of all Seattle knows what to make of." Four years ago, the Goodwill Games were held for the first time in Moscow. "They certainly fill a need for U.S. Olympians," said Pete Cava, a spokesman for The Athletics Congress, America's national governing body of track and field. "The year before the Olympics, you have the world championships. The year after, you have the World Cup. This is kind of a down year, especially for Americans." The first event of the games, at Spokane, saw the Chinese women's volleyball team beat Peru, 3-1. At night, the Soviet women routed the United States, 15-5, 15-8, 16-14. Also on Friday, the world champion Soviet Union men's team, as expected, easily captured the team title in gymnastics. The United States overcame a slow start behind 1988 Olympian Lance Ringnald, fellow New Mexican Trent Dimas and UCLA's Chris Waller to finish second. It was the Americans' highest finish in international competition since the U.S. men won the team gold at the 1984 Olympics.

Compiled from State Journal wire services and staff reports ILL i ' f: ' . V I Baylor to talk with Cardinals By Andy Baggot Sports reporter MILWAUKEE Don Baylor, the Milwaukee Brewers' first-year hitting coach, said Friday he'll be interviewed today for the job as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis General Manager Dal Maxvill is scheduled to arrive here today to meet with Baylor, who said Brewers GM Harry Dalton has given the Cardinals permission to speak with him. "I hope it's not just a formality," Baylor said after returning from California, where he was inducted Tuesday into the Orange County' Hall of Fame. The Cardinals are looking for a full-time replacement for Whitey Herzog, who resigned unexpectedly July 6. Red Schoendienst, a coach, is the interim manager. According to reports from St. Louis, Baylor is one of five candidates. Joe Torre, a former Atlanta Braves manager now a television commentator with the California Angels, is considered the front-runner because of his previous managerial experience. Torre met Wednesday with Maxvill. Hal Lanier, a former Houston Astros manager and now a coach with the Philadelphia Phillies, also reportedly has been interviewed. Other reported candidates include Gene Tenace, the Toronto Blue Jays hitting instructor, and Pat Corrales, a Braves coach. The Cardinals apparently are in no hurry to make a decision. It's Improved pitching brightening hopes By Andy Baggot Sports reporter MILWAUKEE - There are growing signs that an extended stretch of abysmal pitching by the Milwaukee Brewers has nearly run its course. If the trend continues, the Brewers are in a position to make up some ground in the American League East Division. Over the last 10 games, including Friday night's 6-4 loss to Seattle, Milwaukee starters have a 3.00 ERA. Over the previous eight, the ERA was even better at 2.22. In the last 16 games, the bullpen has a 2-4 record with four saves and a 1.32 ERA. Since the all-star break, the Brewers have taken 14 points off their ERA (4.23 to 4.09). Two shutouts in the last week against Oakland and Seattle helped considerably. Several developments have caused the improvement. Mark Knudson, who had two of the club's four victories on a recent eight-game road trip including a 2-0 triumph over the Athletics, and Bill Krueger, the winner in Thursday's 5-0 victory over the Mariners, have performed well as the fourth and fifth starters. Ron Robinson (3-1, 3.02 ERA) has given Milwaukee surprising durability, averaging six innings over seven starts. Because of elbow problems, there was some question of his stamina when he was acquired in a trade June 9. Meanwhile, Chuck Crim and Dan Plesac have re-established themselves as reliable members of the bullpen. Crim, the setup man, has strung together HVi scoreless innings in six appearances. Plesac, the closer, hasn't allowed an earned run in his last 12Vi innings spanning nine outings. Muskies return the favor, rip Peoria with 7-run 8th State Journal staff PEORIA, 111. As paybacks go, this one was pretty good. After watching the Peoria Chiefs have their way with Madison reliever Jim Lawson in an 11-run seventh inning Thursday, the Muskies made, starter Henry Gomez and Travis Willis pay the price Friday. Madison pounded Gomez (6-8) and Willis for seven runs in the eighth inning en route to posting a 9-2 Midwest League triumph before 3,461 fans at Meinen Field. Fred Cooley snapped a 2-2 tie with one out in the eighth with a bases-loaded, two-run double off Gomez. Willis then came on to take his lumps. Scott Henry greeted the Chiefs reliever by tripling home a pair of runs to make it 6-2. Eric . Campa followed with a run-scoring single and, after Enoch Simmons Pearl Swiggum talks to folks Mondays in Look Wisconsin State Journal CALL 2S2-6363 FOR CONVENIENT HOME DELIVERY T "a n Don Baylor possible a new manager could be in place within the next 10 days. After a 17-season career in the major leagues, Baylor, 41, retired in 1989. He signed a one-year contract with the Brewers Sept. 5 to work as a special assistant to Dalton. He was named hitting instructor Dec. 4. "I think I'm ready for the next step," Baylor said. Baylor, who also has been mentioned as a candidate for the San Diego managerial job, said he is very serious about this pursuit. "That's the only way I know how to do things seriously," he said. "It's not a formality for me." BREWERS NOTES Manager Tom Trebelhorn said Friday that the current upbeat pitching situation gives him reason to believe his club can put a winning streak together. He then replayed last year's big run for emphasis: On July 19, Milwaukee was 43-51 and 11 games out of first place. One month later, the record was 64-61 and the deficit was one-half game. The Brewers (41-49) trail first-place Boston by eight games. "We like to think that we're a team that can streak right now," Trebelhorn said. "This is a pretty big stretch for us." The Brewers are in the process of playing 14 of 17 games at County Stadium. "We're in a division that's winna-ble if you play reasonable baseball," Trebelhorn said. Aaron eclipsed: With his two-run home run in the third inning Friday, Dave . Parker set club records for home runs and RBI by a designated hitter. The hit gave Parker 13 home runs and 61 RBI from the DH spot (he had 62 RBI overall, one coming when he played first base). Hall of Famer Hank Aaron set the previous records of 12 home runs and 60 RBI in 1975. Unique keepsake: When the Brewers visited Oakland last week, Athletics left fielder Rickey Henderson gave Trebelhorn the base he stole to set an AL standard for career stolen bases. Henderson stole his 892nd against Cleveland May 26. Trebelhorn, whom Henderson credits for helping him develop in the minor leagues, has the base on display on a shelf in his office. MIDWEST LEAGUE singled, Tom Mann relieved Willis. Jim Waggoner capped the spurt with a two-run single.
