Glasgow went down in order in the first two innings, thanks in part to a good running catch by Mark Seacat in right field to end the second inning. Keintz pitched the first three innings and allowed only one base runner, that on a walk in the third. Helena didnt fare much better Tn the first two innings.

Glasgow got a lead-off single by Paul Yoakum in the fifth, but again Keintz threw the runner out trying to steal. Wilke, the third Helena t pitcher, retired Glasgow in order in the sixth to preserve the victory. Keintz pitched three inings, Stohl went two and Wilke pitched the last frame for Helena with Wilke and Keintz sharing the catching duties. Offensively, Helena had only four hits, including a triple by Tavary, double by Obviously, Id there, he said. He just failed to make it in one major ranking of world players, remaining fractionally behind Norman. Silver trophies are more important that paperwork, Faldo replied. He certainly has the vote of Payne Stewart, the PGA champion who wore a bizarre, star-spangled ensemble in a futile attempt to overtake the front-running Faldo and his repetitive swing. Stewarts expression showed slight annoyance, like an adult answering the foolish question of a child, when someone asked if Faldo is the best in golf. Wouldnt you say hes the best 1 in the world? Stewart asked. The record says he is. In addition to his 1987 Open triumph at Muirfield and two Masters victories, he took Curtis Strange to a playoff in the 1988 U.S. Open and just missed a playoff for that title last month. He is the first since Tom Watson in 1982 to win two majors in the same season, and the first since Watson in 1977 to win the Masters and British Open-in the same season. He did it in a fashion that has become familiar to his competitors: an almost mechanical pre- -cision with his shots, drives splitting the fairway with metronome monotony, irons arrowing into the greens. And absolutely no mistakes. He wasnt going to make any mistakes, Stewart said. He didnt make any mistakes all week. Why would you expect him to make any today? Armed with a five-shot lead starting the final round, Faldo needed only a final round of 71, one under par, to post the second-best total of all the 119 British Opens, an 18-under-par 270. It was more than anyone else could handle. Stewart once .closed to within two strokes, but a drive into a bunker on the 13th cost him a bogey, and he missed a 12-foot birdie putt he could not afford on the following hole. When Faldo dropped a 10t-foot birdie putt on the 15th, he was four in front with three to play and the old silver claret jug that goes to the winner was his. When the lead got down to two, I was battling my mind, Faldo said. Not until it went back to three did I feel comfortable. A bogey-bogey finish dropped Stewart back into a tie for second ,at 275 with Mark McNulty of Zimbabwe. McNulty closed up with the best round of the day, a 7-under-par 65. Stewart finished with a 71 in weather typical of this event when it is held in Scotland: gray skies, cool temperatures, blustery winds. Jodie Mudd made a run at the leader until he drove into the rough and chopped up the infamous Road Hole, the 17th, with a double bogey. He shot 66 and tied for fourth with Ian'Woosnam of Wales at 276. Woosnam, too, once got into contention with a string of three consecutive birdies, but couldnt keep it going. spnirs error scored the two runs they needed to win. Snellman singled and scored on a triple by Mike Ta-' vary the only player back from last years state championship team. Tavary then scored what turned out to be the winning, run when Maas unleashed a wild pitch.

Ga-, Ford. 200, $33 450 3 ) Rusty Wallace, Chariot. NC. Pontiac. 206 $30 008 Pat Miller was 1,743 miles from Detroit, and he had packed lightly. The 22-year-old right-hander was out of his element, but it didnt matter. He arrived equipped with a major league slider and a famous last name. I didnt know where Helena was, Miller recalled. I said, This cant be. The Milwaukee Brewers picked Miller in the 19th round of the 1990 Major League baseball draft and assigned him to their Helena rookie-league affiliate in the Pioneer League. Im looking to make someone proud, he said. It's my chance. That someone is Millers father, Bob who pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies i the 1950s and has been baseball coach at the University of Detroit for 28 years. ( Hes my hero, my childhood idol, said the younger Miller, who played for his father on a four-year college baseball scholarship. My room back in Detroit is covered with pictures and newspaper clippings of my father. Bob Miller started the fourth game of the 1950 World Series against the New York Yankees. He played 10 years with the Philadelphia organization and rubbed shoulders with Hall of Famers like Robin Roberts, Joe Dimaggio, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays. I've always had this dream since I was a little kid to make it in pro ball, said Pat Miller. I want to be just like my dad. Miller knew httle about the Pioneer League which also includes Butte, Great Falls and Billings in Montana, Idaho Falls and Pocatello in Idaho, Salt Lake City, and Medicine Hat in Canada. . But he probably w as relieved to hear that players like Cecil Fielder, Ryne Sandberg Pat Miller delivers a pitch in a recent game. (Staff photo by George Lane) and Julio Franco all started their pro careers in the Pioneer League. Tve always been a starter, and I think they like me as a starter, Miller said. Im going to be a pitcher who's not going to dominate, but I'm going to throw a lot of strikes and not walk people. Helena Brewers pitching coach Mike Coombs agrees. He has good command of his pitches, good knowledge, and he gets ahead of ,the hitter, Coombs said. He can pick the spots. . Millers stats arent major league material, yet. He sports a 2-3 record and a 4.64 ERA in 33 innings pitched. But he is second in the league in strikeouts with 35 and has given up only four walks. In hif first start for the Brewers, Miller gave upjfive runs in three innings. I was nervous against Billings, he said. Ive never pitched in front of big crowds. But Miller got his rhythm back in his second outing, throwing a three-hitter. He then pitched a seven-hit complete game victory before being knocked out in the first inning of a 14-3 loss to the Northern Division-leading Great Falls Dodgers last Wednesday. Im damn confident, Miller said. My dad says I have better stuff than he did at this stage. I have a major league slider and I throw strikes. While his pitching skills already have taken on changes, so has the Motor City lifestyle he was used to. I was robbed in Detroit two weeks before I came here, Miller said. I dont have to worry about those things here. It's not like youre going to get mugged at the ballpark. Miller isn't the only son of a former major leaguer playing in the Pioneer League. Victor Perez, son of former Cincinnati Reds star Tony Perez, is playing for the Billings Mustangs.. We played in the same college league back home, Miller said He played for Xavier, and I knew him when I pitched for Detroit. For the meantime, Pat Miller, a big-city boy from the Midwest, is happy to be in Montana. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, he said.
