BAD The bad guys from the East meet the bad guys from the West as Miami and BYU square off in Provo, Utah today. Story, B3 Indians win record fourth straight title during the regular season, was credited with a fielders choice and the game-winning RBI when Edenfeld charged his bunt and failed to make the barehand grab. Adams probably would have been out at home if Edenfeld had taken more time and made the play.

Regardless, Darius Gash followed with yet another bunt. Edenfeld got the force-out at home, but came inside with a 3-2 fastball to Kevin Farlow that forced in Bruno with Spokanes final run. Diminutive second baseman P.J. Forbes pulled Boise within two by clubbing his first Please see INDIANS: B5 stop fell down while fielding Dave Adams bunt. That was the first time in four tries that Spokane succeeded in laying down a bunt.

Brent Bish then blew two more bunt attempts before sacrificing with two strikes. Leftwich intentionally walked Keith McKoy to load the bases, but walked Julio Bruno on four pitches to force in a run. Hawk relief ace Ken Edenfeld, back in uniform after serving a one-game suspension for bumping an umpire Tuesday in Spokane, came on to face Jim West. The burly catcher, who hit .216 with a mere six runs batted in were starting to click. Throughout the season, that was our lone goal, to win four in a row.

Its a great feeling." The end result was beautiful, but Spokanes final victory was not always pretty. The Indians managed just four hits (Boise had only six) and broke up a 1-1 game in the seventh inning by scoring three runs on one hit a bunt that should have been a sacrifice. Losing starter Phil Leftwich had struck out four straight batters when he opened the seventh by issuing his first walk. Jay Gainer took first, then moved up a base when Boise third baseman J.R. Showalter normally a short By Howie Stalwick Stiff writer BOISE The players change, as do the rivals, and so do the sites.

But when it comes down to the most important game of the Spokane Indians young lives, they deliver the goods like no team in Northwest League history. The Indians became the first team in league history to win four straight championships when they defeated Boise 4-2 Friday night at Memorial Stadium. A standing-room-only crowd of 4,031 watched the Indians capture the inaugural Bob Freitas Award. Freitas, the former league president, died last year. Spokane has been pushed to the third and final game of the championship series four years in a row, winning under four managers and with few, if any, returning players.

Only three of the 1990 Indians had played an inning of professional baseball before the Northwest League season began in mid-June, and none was around for last year's title. I didnt hear about the three in a row until I got here, said relief pitcher Lance Painter, who earned both of Spokanes playoff wins. After the first few games, we realized we Garcia ready if WSU needs more miracles Vc53 VS. Wyoming AYFSi KICKOFF: 3:15 p.m., Martin Stadium, Pullman. RECORDS: Washington State, 1-0 overall; Wyoming 1-0 overall.

COACHES: Washington State, Mike Price (7-5 at WSU, second year, 53-49 overall, ninth year); Wyoming, Paul Roach (27-11-0, third year). TV-RADIO: KXLY (920 AM), pregame show begins at 2:45. 1 By Steve Bergum Staff writer PULLMAN Almost 12 months have passed since Aaron Garcia made his first college start as a redshirt freshman quarterback at Washington State. It came against the University of Wyoming in Laramie, and Garcia still remembers the fluttering in his stomach. Being my first start, I was a little bit nervous," he recalled.

And they came out and did a lot of different things pressurewise; brought a lot of people. So, it was a good intitiation. Garcias passing performance (10 of 23 for 200 yards with two interceptions) was hardly the stuff from which instructional videos are made. But he did throw a couple of long touchdown passes and the Cougars, with the help of a late Wyoming fumble, were able to escape with a 29-23 win. Today, Garcia and the Cougars are scheduled to face the Cowboys again this time at home in newly recarpeted Martin Stadium, where a crowd of over 32,000 is expected for the 3:15 p.m.

kickoff. And Garcia finds himself as one of a trio of fallen Cougar heroes, who face much lesser roles than they played in Laramie last fall. Garcia will be the No. 2 quarterback behind Gossen again. But his stock has slipped the least of the three.

Junior tailback Paul Carr, who rushed for a career-high 128 yards and the winning TD as a fill-in for injured starter Steve Broussard, is down to No. 3 on the depth chart, where it looks like his only chance to carry the ball rests on a fake-punt call. And junior wideout C.J. Davis, who caught touchdown passes from Garcia of 57 and 61 yards, wont play at all because of a possible bone chip in his left shoulder. Garcia, addressing the dramatic role changes, said, Anxiety has replaced the nervousness, in my case.

Last year I didnt know what to expect and we barely got out with a win. This year I know what I can do and Im more anxious to play. This year Id like to beat em and beat em bad. I hope I get the opportunity. In last weeks win over TCU, Garcia was used sparingly in relief of Gossen.

Ferris whips Pups; LC escapes Titan connection bums Bears KICKOFF: 1 p.m., Woodward Stadium, Cheney. RECORDS: Eastern, 4-6 overall in 1989; Lenoir-Rhyne, 1-0 this season and 5-6 in 1989. COACHES: Eastern, Dick Zornes (65-47-2, 12th year); Lenoir-Rhyne, John Perry (27-40-0, 7th year). TV-RADIO: KHDL (630 AM), pregame show begins at 12:50.

By Dave Boling Staff writer An important element in Eastern Washington University football, as espoused by coach Dick Zornes, is the ability to shove the football down somebodys throat. The problem facing Zornes going into todays season-opener against Lenoir-Rhyne is that some of his prime shovers are stuck on the sidelines, presumably stuffing their own throats with pain medication. The expected starting running back tandem of Greg Saunders and Henry Hall is out with ankle injuries (one each), while promising backup Timmy Mitchell and guard Peder Thor-stenson are limited by hamstring injuries (one each). Receiver Luther Carr, meanwhile, is gone for the season after having a bowel obstruction rupture during surgery. If the pain has gotten to Zornes, whos opening his 12th season at Eastern, hes not letting on.

Well find a way to get it done, he said. Were going to do the same things wed planned on and the other guys will have to take up the slack Score one for the fearless forecaster, and score a 28-7 victory for University over CV in the Greater Spokane League openers for both schools. The season-opening rivalry drew a capacity crowd in excess of 3,000 to the sparkling new football gridiron on a beautiful summery night with temperatures in the mid-70s. Please see TITANS: B2 By Kevin Taylor Staff writer After watching University receiver Scott Ranniger whiz by, chacir.g a sidelines pass with his fingertips for the second time in six plays, the two guys holding the yard markers had this exchange at Central Valleys Sig T. Hansen Field Friday: I bet they connect on that before the night is over.

Bingo! yards on 23 carries and directed the offense almost flawlessly. He scored the Saxons first touchdown from the 4 and ran in another from the 27 late in the fourth period. He is regarded as a fine passer, but only threw three times, completing two including a 69-yard strike to Terrance Davis for a third-period score. Trevis Alsup, who rushed for 75 yards, had the other Saxon score, going over from the 1 in the first period as Ferris assumed a 13-0 lead. G-Prep quarterback Scott Scelfo had a hand in both Bullpup scores.

He ran in from the 3 in the second and passed 24 yards to Eric Gamache in the final quarter. The kids played their guts out, Coach Pfeifer said. It was a total team effort and everyone deserves credit. Please see GSL: B2 By Merle Derrick writer A year ago, Ferris went into the Greater Spokane League football campaign with great expectations. The Saxons got blown out by Gon-zaga Prep 42-0 in their opener and lost four straight.

We lost that game and it meant everything, Coach Pat Pfeifer of Ferris said. Friday night, the Saxons came down on the same foe 28-13 to snap the 17-game win streak of the fivetime defending champion Bullpups. This year, it (the win) will do tremendous things for our attitude, Pfeifer said. Ferris triumph followed another barnburner in which Lewis and Clark came from behind three times to pull out a 38-35 win over North Central on Chris Champagnes 23-yard field goal with 1:04 left in the game. and do the job.

Hall and Saunders hadnt separated themselves much from replacements Harold Wright and Tony Johnson, anyway, Zornes said. Well be all right with what weve got, but we wont be too good if we get any more injuries during the game. The key is if we can be physical," Please see EWU: B3 frequently last year, indicated the league is going to be tighter from top to bottom, as many coaches said before the season began.

The narrow losses for Rogers and NC, which both lost by big margins Quintana ends slump, delivers win for Boston over Mariners Sabatini feels ready to dispose of Graf he got his first RBI this week with the sacrifice fly.

I hadnt been feeling too good; I was a little tired, but now I feel good, Quintana said. On my hit, (the count) was 2-1 and I was waiting for his slider, he said of Mariners pitcher Mike Jackson. Carlos had the sacrifice fly and then got the big basehit," said catcher Tony Pena, who scored the winding run. Hopefully, hell start swinging the bat again the way he did before. Seattle manager Jim Lefebvre said he thought Pena was out on Henry Cottos throw to the plate in the 1 1th.

No doubt about it, Lefebvre said. Weve been watching the replay and he was out. Please see MARINERS: B5 Associated Press BOSTON Carlos Quintana picked just the right time to end his slump. Quintana tied the score with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning and drove in the winning run with a one-out single in the 1 1th Friday night as the Boston Red Sox rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Bouncing back after being swept three games by Oakland, the Red Sox retained their 5'i-game AL East lead over Toronto, which beat Chicago.

It wasnt all good news for the Sox, though. Before the game, Boston learned 20-game winner Roger Clemens will miss at least two starts with tendinitis in his right shoulder. Quintana, who doubled and scored a run in the third, was 4-for-17 when Sanchez-Vicario 6-1, 6-2 in 54 minutes Friday morning, Graf said the right words, too words she hadnt bran able to say all year, words that will make Sabatinis job in todays final difficult, indeed. It would be something major for me," Graf of winning her third U.S. Open.

Being in the final and playing so well, it is already a big step for me. It means a whole lot to me; a whole lot. Nothing really matters to me so much for a long, long time.
