Bob Walk started and -- vintage Walk -- worked out of a bases- loaded, one-out jam In the first inning before erasing through the second Dennis Mo^ll^r allowed one run on two hita in two innings of work, but got the victory when the Bucs scored three times in the fourth. A five-run seventh, highlighted by doubles by Andy TomblerUn, John Wehner and JenyGoff. broke it open- Mike Zimmerman threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit Saturday's attendance was 6,029, a new McKechnie Field record to throw today for the first time since elbow pain derailed him last week. Fonawr PlntM vUtt Zane Smith threw off the mound again Saturday and reported significant progress. -Every day I feel better and better," Smith said "There's still a I'tth bit of pain, but it's getting there. Fm not short-arming the ball anymore. 'You Just cant ever tell when a guy is supposed to be ready. Ill get there. Since everybody keeps saying I'm behind, that's my motivation.'' In other news from the trainer's room, Alejandro Pena is scheduled Saturday was ex-Pirate day at McKechnie Field Former Bucs Cedl Espy and Gary Vareho are now with the Reds, as is Marc Bombard who piloted Buffalo to an 87-57 mark and · first-place finish in the American Association.

Vitale was advised to stick to basketball Pitchers: Pena injury opens From 01 "I talked with Ted (Simmons) before I went h"*!' to Buffalo, and he said I'd definitely be back in September," Minor said "But in that situation, Jim didn't want to rock the boat with the pitching staff, and I understood that" Rationalization. When you're 27 years old and still scratching to escape the minor leagues, you cling to it. Minor's career hasn't turned out quite like he hoped when he was taken in the 1088 June draft. "You do set timetables, and you want to accomplish goals," Minor said. "But you make adjustments. I always thought if I wasn't in the majors by the time I was 25 I'd go back to school. I didn't want to be a career minor leaguer. But baseball is my love and my passion. You make adjustments and you make the best of it." Ironically, a setback that could signal the end of Pena's career could signal the beginning of Minor's. Zimmerman is In a different boat Norman in a zone Saturday atDoral "You're always out there trying to impress someone. Whether it's little league, against 10-year- olds, or whatever, I want to do good." Mlk* Zimmerman He turned 24 a month ago, and the organization already showed him a huge vote of confidence when Zimmerman found himself on the list of 15 protected players for the November expansion draft. "I know Pittsburgh believes in me," Zimmerman said. "Being protected in the expansion draft, that shows an investment, that shows confidence. And It Just made me want to go up there and play in the black and gold even more." Zimmerman posted a 4-15 record at Carolina last year, but that's misleading. The Mudcats scored two runs or less In eight of those losses; Zimmerman's ERA was a respectable 3.82 and he allowed only 141 hits in 152 innings. He also boasts an arm the scouts love and a signature pitch about which they rave. "A washout slider," said Miller. "Maybe the best one in the organization.'' When Pena went down, a light went off in Zimmerman's head and it read: "JOB." "You never want to see a guy get hurt," Zimmerman "M "As a pitch* er I can relate to getting hurt. But the reality is that It's pan of the game. I'm excited because it's an opportunity for me to win a Job." . Zimmerman's best chance may rely on his head as much as his arm. He has tremendous confidence and is rarely fazed by such things as competing for a job in the majors. "You're always out there trying to impress someone," Zimmerman said. "Whether it's little league, Qolf roundup Th» MIAMI -- Pro golfers call it "the zone." It defies description. It's almost mystical, very nearly a trance, containing something of a dream-like quality. It's the state of being they all seek and some never find. "It's hard to explain." Greg Norman said Saturday after his visit Into that never-never land produced some startling numbers and a six-shot lead through three rounds of the Si 4 million Doral Open It all added up to a 10-under-par 62 that tied Norman's own record on the 6,939 yards of sand and water and palms that make up Doral's Blue Monster course, one of the most respected on the PGA Tour Beautifully conditioned and lacking the winds that make up its natural defenses, however, the Blue Monster was no match for the Great White Shark. In three days he's averaged 65 strokes a round And that's three better than Tom Kite's total at this stage when he set a PGA Tour scoring record for 90 holes at the Bob Hope Classic earlier this month The third-round 62 went with earlier scores of 65 and 68 for a 195 total. a distant 21 under par and all but out of reach of any would-be challengers going into Sunday's final round of the chase for a 1252,000 first prize The Australian ace who broke a long slump last year in Canada, is six ihots in front Not impossible to overuke But very nearly so H« can fthool 72 tomorrow and uin. said Paul Azlnger who was tied Th« AuoeIMM Pr*M Gary Player toases hla putter after missing a birdie putt on the 17th hole Saturday during the Senior QTE Claftalc Friday. for the lead at the tournament's halfway point, shot 68 and is Norman's closest pursuer at 201 "It's his tournament to win or lose."
