BASEBALL 3 Binkiewicz HRs help stop Michigan BATTLE CREEK, Mich. Notre Dames Joe Binkiewicz hit three home runs and four other players had multiple hits as the Irish notched an 11-6 victory Thursday night over Michigan. Binkiewicz had a lead-off homer in the second inning and followed it up in his next at-bat binkiewicz with another homer to give the Irish a 2-0 lead Notre Dame stranded runners at third base m three different innings while the Wolverines crept back into the game, taking a 5-4 lead in the top of the eighth. A pair of Michigan errors to go with an Irish five-hit rally gave Notre Dame a 9-5 lead in the eighth, with Binkiewicz going to bat again. Michigan coach Bill Freehan, who intentionally walked the Notre Dame captain the previous inning, brought in left-hander Chris Newton specifically to pitch to Binkiewicz. The strategy failed as Binkiewicz sent Newton's second pitch over the right field wall to give the Irish an 11-5 lead. Never in my life have I seen a guy on a tear like this one, said Irish coach Pat Murphy of Binkiewicz. The best hitters weve had here have never had a streak like this. Binkiewicz, hitting just .167 through the first 14 games of the season, has hit .563 with nine home runs and 22 RBIs in the past 10 games to raise his average to 429 He is the first Notre Dame player to hit three homers in a game on two occasions. He also hit three against Evansville earlier this season. Notre Dame is 22-12 while Michigan dropped to 21-16. The Irish travel to Indianapolis this weekend for Saturday and Sunday double-headers against Butler.

Sox work overtime, make Expos pay again ROCKFORD, 111. South Bend continued its extra-inning heroics Thursday night with a 3-2 victory over Rockford. Charles Poe delivered a run-scoring single with two out in the top of the 12th inning to break a 2-2 deadlock. The White Sox have beaten the host Expos in extra innings in two of their three games so far. Poes hit pushed pinch-runner Rogelio Nunez across the plate with the game-winner. Dan Monzon reached on a walk and was forced at second when Nilson Robledo hit into a fielder's choice. Horace Gaither singled to advance Robledo to second base, and South Bend manager Tommy Thompson elected to replace him Robledo with Nunez. Poe singled to left to send Nunez home, but Gaither was thrown out attempting to advance to third on the play. Reliever Keith Shepherd, 1-0, picked up the victory on a night in which White Sox hurlers blanked the Expos in every inning but the eighth Starter Jason Bere turned in a brilliant six-inning stint, fanning nine and limiting Rockford to Ran-don Wilsteads single in the third. Bere fanned six of the 11 men he faced and allowed only two base runners over the final three innings he worked. John Hairston slugged an RBI-smgle to score Kerry Valne as South Bend gave Bere a 14) lead in the fourth inning. Rockfords Martin Martinez matched Bere pitch for pitch until the seventh. He escaped unscathed in the seventh inning when Hairston was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on Monzon's fly County official believes Tigers will take offer DETROIT (AP) - A Wayne County official says hes confident the county will be able to entice the Detroit Tigers to select a Detroit site for a new Tiger Stadium I'm 95 percent sure we can offer the Tigers the best financial deal around and I'm 95 percent sure they will take the best financial deal they get, Wayne County deputy executive Michael Duggan said Thursday. He said the team clearly was set last year to pick a site outside the city, but the countys efforts were able to make Detroit the preferred location. Duggan estimated a new stadium would cost up to $125 million, exclusive of land acquisition. He said the cost figures will determine whether Tiger Stadium is renovated or a new stadium is built nearby.

LaSalles Lions, keyed by Carl Macon's three-run double in the bottom of the sixth inning, moved to 4-0 in the league race and 7-2 1 overall with a 6-2 triumph Thursday over Washington at Coveleski Stadium. Adams junior right-hander Todd Gorski had pitched a three-hitter in the opener to beat Riley, 4-0, in the opener of the two NIC match-ups at Coveleski. LaSalle 6, Washington 2: John Urbanski, effective as both a starter and a stopper for the Lions this season, turned in innings of nohit rebef for his sixth victory after going the distance to beat Riley on Tuesday Washington had a lot of chances against LaSalle lefty starter Todd Herman, who walked nine to go with four hits, four wild pitches and a balk. But the Panthers stranded nine runners and made some costly base-running mistakes. It was Macons 3-run double up the nght-center gap in the sixth that broke a 2-2 tie Eric Wade followed with another RBI double Macon got a chance to start when Bill Hoofnagle was sick, and hes earned his place in the lineup, said LaSalle coach Scott Sill This team really gets along well together Macon also had a single in the fifth, and scored the tying run on a double by Jamie Veith Washingtons Trevor Moreno took the loss after turning over the bases-loaded, no-out jam to Terry Litka ui the sixth Litka got Bryan Hauteman to hit into a force play at the plate before Macon delivered the game-winner. Mike Freel had two of Washingtons four hits. The Panthers scored both their runs in the fourth without a hit on two walks, two wild pitches, an error, a stolen base and Morenos squeeze bunt. Washington coach Rick To-maszewski ordered four intentional walks two to Gary Sobieralski The Panthers dropped to 4-5-1, including 1-2 in the NIC.

The Eagles scored twice without a hit in the third, then locked it up with two in the seventh on a hit by Matt Buczkowski, a walk to Tim Guyer, a hit by Mike Lackman and a fly ball from Gorski. We put a pretty nice game together, admitted Adams coach Len Buczkowski. Guyer had an unusual day at the plate two walks, a sacrifice bunt and a hit-by-pitch for no official at-bats. Lackman and Mike Kryder had two hits each for Adams. Justin Chapman took the loss on a six-hitter Were in an offensive slump.
