The guys have to get on for me to get them in, Carter said. I was doing my job and they were doing their jobs. Meanwhile, very few Mustangs were doing their jobs, at least on the mound or in the field. Billings, who made three errors in its first two games, both wins, were charged with six boots in its first loss. All this had Billings manager Gerry Groninger espousing truisms. If you play good defense every night, give the other team just 27 outs, youre going to win a lot of games. We gave them at least 40 outs. You do that, and youre not going to win many ball games. The litany of mistakes included two bad throws by shortstop Keith Gordon, a dropped throw by first baseman Todd Wilson, and base hits getting behind each of the starting outfielders Chris Vasquez, Eric Burroughs and Eliezer Quinones. But as bad as the fielding looked, Groninger was equally unhappy with his pitchers. We pitched backwards tonight. We did things (pitching coach) Mack (Jenkins) doesnt teach. We werent aggressive. We didnt pitch inside. We Today in Cherts Brewers baseball O The Helena Brewers host the Great Falls Dodgers in their Pioneer League home opener tonight at 7 at Kindrick Legion Field. On C.JOrt Bad day for Calcavecchia Jose Maria Olazabals 35-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole gave him a one-stroke lead halfway through the Irish Open tournament Friday. The Spaniard had an even-par 72 for a 36-hole total of 139, one shot ahead of John Bland of South Africa, Eamonn Darcy of Ireland and Marc Farry of France in the PGA European Tour event. Bland had a second-round 69, Darcy a 70 and Farry a 73. First-round leader Mark Calcavecchia had a terrible start, but stayed in contention with the help of a 60-yard sand wedge for an eagle-3 at the 16th hole. He had a 3-over 75 for a total of 141, two shots behind the leader. Hawks, Bucks discuss trade The Atlanta Hawks have talked with Milwaukee about trading center Moses Malone to the Bucks for guard Ricky Pierce, a newspaper reported Friday. The Milwaukee Journal said the discussed trade could not take place until August if at all because of salary cap restrictions. Malone, 34, will make $2.4 million next season and Pierce, the NBAs top sixth man last season, $900,000. Pete Babckock, the Hawks director of player personel, acknowledged to the Journal that the trade was discussed. The salary cap wont let us do it, he said. Malone has one year left on his contract with the Hawks before becoming a unrestricted free agent. McEnroe loses to Forget D John McEnroes Wimbledon tuneup sputtered Friday when he lost to Guy Forget of France 9-7 in a pro-set exhibition in this London suburb. I need more work on my serve, McEnroe said. Its been a problem for the past four years. Forget reached todays final against countryman Henri Leconte, who beat Jim Courier of the United States 9-8 on Thursday and 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash of Australia 9-7 on Friday. Berger the f astest qualifier D Gerhard Berger of Austria, his McLaren Honda coping best with the citys 7,250-foot altitude, averaged 128.057 mph on Friday in taking the provisional pole for Sundays Mexican Grand Prix. Bergers fast lap came on his fourth qualifying circuit of the 2.747-mile track. Nigell Mansell of Britain, who inherited a Ferrari ride this season when Berger switched to McLaren, was next at 127.346 mph, accomplished on his 20th lap. Ricardo Patrese of Italy, driving a Williams, reached 127.069 mph, and McLarens Ayrton Senna, Formula Ones career pole leader with 46, was fourth at 126.867. Senna, the Brazilian who has started from the pole in four of five races this season, gets another chance at the No. 1 spot during todays second qualifying session. The 26 fastest cars from among the 34 scheduled to take part in the Saturdays session will qualify for Sundays 69-lap, 189.549-mile race. Heat, Nuggets work trade O The Miami Heat on Friday traded its No. 3 choice in Wednesdays NBA draft to Denver in exchange for the Nuggets No. 9 and 15 selections. . Denver had obtained the No. 9 pick Thursday night from Dallas in exchange for guard Fat Lever. The Denver-Miami deal is contingent on Lever passing a physical by Tuesday night. Heat managing partner Lewis Schaffel said the deal will help the two-year expansion improve its depth. , didnt pitch aggressive. You let hitters have good, solid, comfortable at-bats and theyll hit you hard." The Brewers started hitting early. Two second-inning walks set up RBI singles by Juan Flores and Mike Carter against starter Carl Stewart, 0-1. And when the ball got past Burroughs in center field, a third run scored. Tim Carters first homer of the season, over the right-field fence, drove in Tony Coble in the third. Burroughs got two runs back when he hit an opposite field, two-run homer in his first at-bat of the season in the bottom of the third. Mike Carter, however, put Helena back up, 6-2, with a bad-hop single past a drawn-in infield in the fourth against Kevin Berry. Back-to-back doubles by Brian Senators lose 1 1 -4 to alumni By SCOTT EIBLMAYR IR Sports Writer There were lots of runs, errors, and fun in the 8th annual alumni baseball game Friday night with the Helena Senators at Kindrick Legion Field. The Helena Senators, who were looking to avenge an 8-1 loss last year, will have to wait another year however as they fell to their former teammates 11-4. Winning wasnt the main concern in this game as all the players were determined to have a good time. They missed a few signs-,said a laughing first time manager Josh Colberg. We had fun and that was the main thing. Colberg, who usually plays right field for the Senators, received the job as manager while the real Senators manager John Merrick played the role of bat boy. The alumni started their nine oldest players with Steve Lindsey pitching. Five of the alumni who played are currently playing collage ball as well. Mike Sell plays at Yakima Community College, Andy Posewitz and John Swartz both play for Jamestown College, Dave Maehl is at North Idaho Community College and Todd Warren is at Missouri Western. The Senators Brad Hart was no stranger to the mound, but his teamates were strangers to their positions. Only three players, excluding Hart, had ever played their positions before. This, combined with the alumni not having practiced together, showed up in the error box. The score was 1-0 after one inning in favor of the Senators but they were never to lead again. The alumni started to get things going in a big way in the top of the second when Trevin Pappas hit a two-run homer to straightaway center. The alumni brought in one more run in the same inning, but it was matched by the Senators two runs off Kyle Garritys hit to knot the score at 3-3. Andy Posewitz tripled and scored off Rick Brinkas single and two more runs followed as (More on SENATORS, page 2B) Nichols and Quinones and an RBI single by Noel Velez got the Mustangs within a run, but the home team never could turn the corner. Coble doubled with one out in the sixth and Tim Carter picked him up with a base hit. Todd Edwards followed with a single and both runners moved into scoring position when the ball bounced past Quinones. Scott Moseley increased the Brewer lead to 8-5 with a ground out. Coble, who had four hits, scored his third run of the game when he tripled ahead of Carters sacrifice fly in the eighth. Billings got its final run in the bottom of Jhe eighth. Pinch hitter Kevin Riggs walked and took third , pinch-hitter Bobby Perna's single and a Helena error. Riggs came home as Kevin Jones, who entered the game as the leagues top hitter, grounded into a double play.

Helena, 1-2 on the young Pioneer League season, entertains the Great Fails Dodgers, 3-0, at 7 p.m. in the teams home opener. The same two clubs turn right around Sunday and play again at 2 p.m. The Brewers will have four more Sunday afternoon games on the schedule this summer. BILLINGS THEN VISITS HELENA FOR A two-game set, Monday and Tuesday, before Helena hits the road again for two outings in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Wednesday and Thursday, and three more in Great Falls next weekend. The Brewers opened the season with three games at Billings earlier in the week and had mixed success. After dropping the first two, they came back to win the finale Friday night 9-6. For tonights festivities, Helenas Michael Connelly, who won this years theme contest for the Brewers BETCHA Gonna Love it is scheduled to throw out the first pitch.

(AP) - Eric King pitched a six-hitter and Dan Pasqua and Scott Fletcher hit two-run homers as the Chicago White Sox cut the Oakland Athletics lead in the American League West to three games with a 5-0 victory Friday night. King (7-1) retired the first 11 Oakland batters and allowed only two runners past first in defeating the As for the second time in eight days. The right-hander struck out a season-high nine and walked one in winning his third consecutive start. King beat Oakland one week earlier in the opener of a four-game series in Chicago. That cut Oaklands lead to one game but the As won the next three. The teams meet again Saturday and Sunday. With Chicago clinging to a 1-0 lead, Pasqua and Fletcher hom-ered in the sixth inning off Scott Sanderson (8-4). The Athletics, who were shut out for the fourth time this season, lost for the third time in their last four games.

Now, said Azeglio Vicini, coach of Italy, the real World Cup begins. The knockout stage is when you must be at your best, all the time. We have to be calm and determined, Italys Roberto Donadoni said. If we lose our poise, then fatigue will set in sooner. In the second round, that can be fatal. , ( J SUDDEN DEATH GAMES DID NOT become a part of the World Cup until 1982. Before then, two round-robin stages were held, with the winners of the two divisions in the second round going to the final. The second round, in which games are decided on penalty kicks in a shootout if they are tied through 30 minutes of overtime, began today. Two surprise qualifiers, Costa Rica and Cameroon, were in action. Costa Rica, which made it to the World Cup for the first time by winning its CONCACAF group, just ahead of the United States, plays Czechoslovakia at Bari. Cameroon, the African champions who stunned defending champion Argentina in the tournament opener and won Group B, take on Colombia at Naples. THE REST OF THE SECOND ROUND has four superpowers of soccer playing Sunday, with South American rivals Brazil and Argentina at Turin, while West Germany goes against the Netherlands at Milan. On Monday, its Romania vs. Ireland at Genoa and Uruguay against Italy at Olympic Stadium in Rome. The second-round ends Tuesday, when Spain plays Yugoslavia at Verona and Belgium takes on England at Bologna. Every team, of course, entered the second phase with confidence it would be merely the next step toward the title. The opinion of Spains Michel, who leads the tournament with four goals, was typical of most players. Weve had a good first stage, but we can do a lot more. Weve got a good group of players and we dont need to be scared of anyone, he said. There are teams whose members dont settle for just a little success I think we have to be that way. Weve got a lot of possibilities. BRAZIL WAS CONSIDERED TO HAVE the most possibilities of any Latin American team when it came here. All five teams from South and Central America qualified for the second round, with Brazil leading the way at 3-0. But the Brazilians did not blow out any opponents and scored only four times. They have been criticized for it by the media and fans. There are no arguments within our squad, Alemao said. The arguments come from outside. FIFA president Joao Havelange had no arguments with the officiating in the tournament which also has been criticized by the media, coaches and even his organizations secretary-general, Joseph Blatter. r -s. ,
