C-4 WEDNESDAY, Ji iy 1, HW8 NORniQHINTt Timh- Griffey leads pack of AL All-Star starters While Ken Griffey is third in the chase for the home run record, hes still first in fans hearts. The Seattle Mariners outfielder became the leading All-Star vote-getter for the third straight year and fourth time overall, blowing away the competition in American League totals announced Tuesday. Griffey, elected to start for the ninth consecutive time, got 4,202,830 votes, well ahead of Baltimore third baseman Cal Ripken, second with 3,402,657. Griffeys total also topped NL leader Mark McGwire, who got 3,377,145 in figures released Monday. McGwire leads the majors with 37 homers, while Chicago Cubs outfielder Sammy Sosa overlooked in the voting is second with 33 and Griffey has 32. The rest of the AL starting lineup has Clevelands Jim Thome (1,193,823) at first, Baltimores Roberto Alomar (1,834,970) at second, Seattles Alex Rodriguez (2,571,985) at shortstop, Texas Ivan Rodriguez (3,012,549) at catcher and Juan HUTCHINSON Continued from C l 115 in 99 13 innings as a junior at Stanford. But he's been spending two-thirds of the year on football. Its been hard to refine things, Hutchinson said. Its been kind of a throw-it-all-to-gether-at-once process. I'm excited to see what I can do playing baseball year-round. Hutchinson will report to Class A New Jersey next week. The Cardinals think his progress might be slow because he hasnt pitched competitively in about a month. PADRES Continued from C-1 to reach second base. It just didnt seem like anybody was going to make an out, so I said, Lets manufacture one, As manager Art Howe said. Rivera refused to discuss the play, but Padres manager Bruce Bothy said, Ruben didnt see the first and third move, and they got him on that one. The win allowed the As to complete their first winning month in two seasons. Oakland went 15-13 in June, their first month over .500 since going 17-10 in June 1996. Joyners three-run homer against Bill Taylor in the eighth tied the game at 8, but the As scored four in their half of the inning. With one out, Rickey Henderson walked and Rafael Boumigal singled off Dan Miceli (7-3). Trevor Hoffman, who leads the NL in saves, came in and walked Ben Grieve. Hoffman then walked Matt Stairs to drive in the go-ahead run, walked Jack Voigt, forcing in another run, and allowed Blowers single, which made it 12-8. Hoffman had walked only eight batters in 36 innings coming into the game. The Padres loaded the bases in the ninth off Taylor (3-5) and IMCHARDSONMKENTER 1 DEALER IN THE INLAND EMPIRE (j 'ZZ n i Guaranteed Lowest Prices Anywhere. 27590 Jefferson Ave (909) 699-3455, MmHI Hungry Hwntct on (St I IS Ft wy iAtEBALKIIOTESIWi Gonzalez of the Rangers (1,900,735) and Kenny Lofton of the Indians (1,467,423) joining Griffey in the outfield. Martinez undergoes surgery Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ramon Martinez underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder and is expected to be out for a year. Martinez had his torn rotator cuff repaired during the two-hour operation by team physician Dr. Frank Jobe and Dr. Lewis Yocum at Centinela Hospital Medical Center. Mondesi cleared Prosecutors decided not to file drunken driving charges against Dodgers outfielder Raul Mondesi due to a lack of evidence, a district attorneys office spokeswoman said. Et cetera Houston released reliever Lee Smith, baseball's all time saves leader wno was signed to a minor league contract on June 6. ... Jason Kendall of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Gary Sheffield of the Los Angeles Dodgers were each suspended for three games and fined by National League president Leonard Coleman for a brawl last Sunday General manager Walt Jocket-ty said Hutchinson may also pitch in the Arizona Fall League. The Cardinals expect him to be ready in 2000 if not earlier. Hes got the ability to come quickly, but were not going to rush him, were not going to push him, Jocketty said. He'll go at his own pace, but I think itll be pretty quick. The Cardinals were prepared to sign Hutchinson with the fifth pick of the first round had outfielder J.D. Drew not been available. Jocketty said Hutchinson was still around for pick No. 48 because teams were worried about signing him. Hutchinson and Drew are both represented by Scott Boras. Joyner singled for two runs to make it 12-10. That set up the strange ending. You know the old theory about that (pickoff) play never working? asked Jason Giambi, who had three RBIs for the A's. Well, it did today. Giambi had an RBI double in the second, a sacrifice fly in the fifth and an RBI single in the seventh. Ben Grieve hit a solo homer, his 12th of the season, in the third for Oakland. Greg Vaughn hit his 27th homer and added a sacrifice fly for the Padres, who had won 16 of 20. Vaughn led off the second with a 410-foot homer to center field. Carlos Hernandez added a two-run homer in the seventh. Padres starter Andy Ashby, attempting to match Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine for the NL lead by getting his 11th win, made his shortest outing of the season. Ashby, who had worked at least six innings in 26 straight starts dating to last summer, allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks in five innings. I couldnt get anything going. I was wild and I was fighting myself. That was the worst thing I could have done, Ashby said. I was putting guys to sleep out there, throwing ball one, ball two. A's starter Jimmy Haynes allowed five runs on eight hits in 6 13 innings. 2686 tncanto Drive (909) 679-9800 lefwMn EiSonar ft NkCal on (St 1 21 S Frwy Blues, Hull part company ST. LOUIS The St. Louis Blues and Brett Hull officially parted company Tuesday night. Hull becomes an unrestricted free agent today and the team said it had no plans to sign him. General manager Larry Pleau said he spoke with Hull earlier in the day and informed him of the clubs decision. Hull, 33, turned down a three-year, $15 million deal from the Blues in March because it did not contain a no-trade clause. The Blues pulled their offer off the table at that point and the two sides had not talked since. Bengals considering ODonnell as backup CINCINNATI The Cincinnati Bengals are considering former New York Jets quarterback Neil O'Donnell as a possible backup for starting quarterback Jeff Blake. Bengals president and general manager Mike Brown said Cincinnati has talked to O'Don- SCHOLFIELD Commut'd from C-t The Padres will not renew their lease at Qualcomm, which runs out in 1999. Moores, who told the North County Times editorial board on Monday that he has lost approximately $49 million since purchasing the team, would entertain offers to sell the franchise. In other words, say goodbye to Major League Baseball here. Thats not a pleasant thought. Whether you are a devoted baseball fan or not, the Radies are just as important to this city as Balixia Pat k, Mission Bay. the world-famous zoo or the Chargers. All of those above mentioned venues are part of the fabric that makes up .America's Finest City. To lose the Padres over some political haggling is unconscionable. So Golding, get back to the negotiating table. Show us the leadership we desperately need to keep the Padres here.
