I I El Paso Times Wednesday, June 6, 1990 Texas Lesfflia El Paso wins, stays l-games behind Wichita SAN ANTONIO - Once again, the team with the most hits did not win the Texas League baseball game. Tuesday night, the El Paso Diablos had just four hits in a 3-2 victory over San Antonio, despite the Missions' 10 hits. It was a reversal of San Antonio's 4-3 victory Monday in which the Diablos had eight hits compared to the Missions' three. The Diablos remained 1V6-games out of first place in the West Division, since division-leading Wichita defeated Mid- UTEP golfers open today at NCAA tourney Times staff, wire report : : TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. -UTEP is one of 30 teams competing in the NCAA golf championship, which begins today at Innisbrook Country Club. ; ; The Miners, coming off a second-place finish in last month's western regionals in Las Cruces, are paired with Florida State and Ohio State in today's opening round. UTEP will tee off on the 10th hole at 10:08 a.m. (MDT). The Miners' chances in the 72-hole tournament ride with Paul Stankowski, who finished second to individual winner Hub Goyen of Nevada-Las Vegas in Las Cruces. UTEP also counts on David Bishop, Bill Heim, Jason Nishimoto and Cameron Doan. "The way we've played the last month, everyone on this team knows we can win when we play well," UTEP golf coach Tim Norris said. "This week is no exception. Week-in and week-out, we've played the best teams in the country." Norris said the Innisbrook course is characterized by dense trees, narrow greens and several water hazards. "Accuracy off the tees is the key to success this week." UTEP has had two practice rounds this week. World Cup Continued from 1C kia, Italy and Austria. Many experts are scoffing at the Americans. "Frankly, their presence in Italy is useless," said Jozef Hicersberger, manager of the Austrian team. The United States probably would not be here, in fact, had Mexico's national team not been disqualified for using illegal players in a junior tournament in 1987. Mexico and the United States are in the same qualifying group, and Mexico has a stronger team. But the United States took advantage of the opportunity. Just qualifying for the Cup, we accomplished our major goal," forward Peter Vermes said. Playing in Italy will give the Americans a taste of World Cup passion, which exists just about everywhere else in the world. It started with the first Cup, held in Uruguay in 1930. When Argentina met Uruguay for the championship, the Argentine fans chanted "victory or death." When Uruguay won, mobs in Buenos Aires stoned the Uruguyan embassy. Twenty years later, a crowd of 199,850 fans in Brazil's Maracana Stadium watched the home team lose the final to Uruguay. In 1954, Brazil's players hid in their opponents' locker room after losing to Hungary and attacked the players. In 1982, Italy used players who had been involved in a game-fixing scandal. All was forgotten when the team swept to the championship. The qualifying process for this year's tournament has not been without controversy. Libya's Col. Muammar el Kadaii canceled a game against Algeria after 70,000 fans were in the stadium. He feared that American planes were going to bomb a nearby factory. Libyans demonstrated their protest in the streets. China and Iran had to reschedule their home-and-home series, Iran because of the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, China because of the muBBacre vi pro-ueraotracy uem- onstrators. El Salvador was trailing Costa Rica by two goals near the end of a game when the El Salvadoran fans pelted their J players with garbage. The game was suspended. land, 74, Tuesday. El Paso plays host to Wichita in a six-game series beginning Friday at Dudley Field. The Diablos' runs came all at once, two because of a throwing error by San Antonio. In the fifth inning, with El Paso trailing 1-0, Craig Cooper and Greg Edge both walked to start the inning. Rafel Skeete then loaded the bases with a bunt. Dee Dixon then singled home Cooper, tying the game, 1-1. Frank Mattox then hit a grounder to Missions' third baseman Steve Finken, who threw home for a force out. However, Finken's throw hit Edge in the back and bounced away, allowing Edge and Skeete to score for a 3-1 lead. The Diablos did not get another hit the rest of the night. San Antonio, which remains .5 games behind Wichita,; closed to within one run at 3-2 when Tom Goodwin singled and stole second with two out in the seventh. Goodwin came home when Luis Martinez singled to left field. El Paso starter Mike Igna-siak, 3-2, had his best outing since joining the Diablos. He pitched 6 innings and allowed nine hits and two earned runs. He had five strikeouts and did not allow a walk. Relievers Ed Puig and Chris George shut down the Missions over the final 2V6 innings, allowing one hit and three strikeouts between them. George earned his fifth save. In tonight's fifth game of the six-game series, right-hander Cal Eldred, 1-1, will pitch for El Paso against right-hander Mike Pitz, 0-1. Game time is 6:05 p.m. MDT with KHEY broadcasting at 5:55 p.m. With new coach, recess is over for the Clippers Los Angeles Times Said Portland's Kevin Duckworth after his former coach, Mike Schuler, was named to coach the Los Angeles Clippers: "I don't know how Benoit (Benjamin) and those guys are going to take it. They'll have to be on time and work hard, and from what I hear, those guys do the opposite." Trivia time In the brawl between Portland and Philadelphia during Game 2 of the 1976-77 NBA finals, who was punched by Darryl Dawkins of the 76ers? Sure thing From Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Bill Lyon: "When it's just you against the world, bet the world." Eluroino brisling Weird Baltimore's Mickey Tettle-ton, last year credited his home run binge to Froot Loops. This time, he says, "It's nothing edible. I've been wearing a new Dick Tracy T-shirt. I've got him out looking for hits." Good line Verne Lundquist of CBS got off this one during the Eastern Conference finals: "Michael Jordan has spent more time on the floor of the Palace than the new broom." Right at home From TNT's Chris Sager. after interviewing NBA coaches: tor a special: " On Don Nelson: "He walked in, sat down, put his feet up ori. the desk, basketball shoes and all, and suddenly he was a member of the crew. He hung out until 5 a.m., claiming it was 2 a.m. Golden State time." On Bernie Bickerstaff: "He was Mr. Fashion. Bernie talked,' fashion as much as basket-' ball." Trivia answer : His teammate, Doug Collins.; He swung at Portland's Bob Gross but inadvertently hit-Collins, who needed four, stitches in his forehead.
