Giants with a single to left in the second a triple to left in the fifth a homer to left in the seventh and a double to left in the ninth In the Ilth inning A's reliever Bill Daw' ley intentionally walked Mitchell to put --runners at first and second with one out Both runners scored on Tracy Jones' two-lout double to right-center It was the last Arizona meeting for the teams who meet again Tuesday night at the Superdome in New Orleans The Giants' corps of starting pitchers 'continued its strange stroll down the road of pain Wednesday when Don Robinson missed his scheduled start against the A's Pgcause of a sudden allergic reaction to sealood Robinson who signed a two-year con- -ttact extension with the Giants on Tuesday apparently had an allergic reaction to some shrimp he ate Tuesday night ex periencing swelling in his face and difficulty breathing He was diagnosed by Scottsdale doctor Dick Collins as having an anaphylactic re-action Wednesday morning Robinson returned to the Giants' club- house for the game however and has recovered enough for the Giants to tentatively schedule him to pitch today's game against Milwaukee Giants' frustration against A's is over the license plates "PR4192" was also sold The newspaper said he had taken out a second mortgage for $150000 on his home in Cincinnati Rose spoke Wednesday while sitting in a dugout that was mobbed with media people but only twice did he appeared to lose his cool Once was when it was suggested that the scandal might keep him from the Hall of Fame in 1992 when he is to become eligible "What?" he snapped "I got 4256 hits I scored 2165 runs That's all I did I'm a Hall of Famer Next ques-- bon" The other time was when someone persisted at questioning him about his problems "I wish you people would get out of my way while I watch infield (practice)" he said "I think the commissioner is the greatest man in the world I have the utmost respect for both of them (Ueberroth and commissioner-elect A Bartlett Giamatti)" UPI Pete Rose shrugs in response to a reporter's question during an interview Wednesday afternoon six weeks after suffering ligament damage in his left ankle during practice last week Right fielder Marc Sal lin a transfer from Los Angeles Valley College who had just three at-bats before Tuesday filled in and doubled home two runs in the first-inning rally "So far guys keep coming through" Smith said "Guys who haven't played a lick have come up with the big hits when we need them And all year we've been getting the pitching" After three weeks of inactivity it was Larson's turn Wednesday After having two starts washed out by rain Larson finally got a chance He blanked the Cougars through four innings before tiring Mike Frame came in to pitch three innings of one-hit shutout ball to earn his seventh save of the season Columbus which has lost three straight on their West Coast trip and Sacramento State travel to Santa Clara today to play the Broncos in a doubleheader begining at 11 am They return to play each other again Friday at 2:30 pm at Hornet Field Canseco Sacramento State No 1 in softball Bee Sports Staff Sacramento State fresh off a victory at the Bakersfield Invitational has been ranked No 1 in the nation in the NCAA's first Division II softball poll released Wednesday The Hornets who play host to defending national champion Cal State-Bakersfield today at 1 pm are 22-8 with six of the losses coming against Division I opponents At the Bakersfield tournament 30-year-old sophomore Kathy Pierce pitched three shutouts including a no-hitter against Concordia Minn "It's exciting for the kids" Hornets coach Irene Shea said "But I've already warned them we've got a long way to go What's important to us is being No 1 when we hold the national championships in May" Continued from page DI seco because earlier X-rays had revealed nothing wrong with the wrist and Weinberg because Canseco had been swinging the bat comfortably in batting practice since Saturday "But sometimes the surface X-rays don't show everything" said Weinberg who explained that Canseco will undergo an arthrogram and an MRI to look for cartilage or ligament damage "It's funny: They didn't find any problem with the hand" Canseco said "But I definitely know there's something wrong with it It's in the wrist and joint area where all the movement occurs That's where I felt it all --- the first swing" Canseco fouled off that 1-0 pitch from Giants starter Dennis Cook and felt what he described as "a real real bad sharp pain" He remained in the game to take another pitch and then another swing The wrist still hurt so he left the game and a 2-2 count for Billy Beane who struck out "I didn't feel 100 percent but I thought I could play on 80 percent" Canseco said "I just wanted to get my timing back and see some pitches" Canseco also had said before Wednesday's game that he thought people were tired of hearing about his off-field exploits and might like to see him play baseball for a change It has been that kind of spring for the 24-year-old 816 million right fielder He has been criticized for missing public appearances and receiving traffic tickets And most recently he has had to answer questions regarding the discovery of steroids connected to his "cousin" David Valdes Valdes who has turned out to be Canseco's good friend not his cousin received a sentence of one year's probation Tuesday for attempting to carry a gun through airport security en route to a baseball card show last winter Canseco said Tuesday that Valdes had been anemic as a child and may have taken pills for stfengthening And there was Canseco making BASEBALL 1 Red So Associated Press WINTER HAVEN Fla — Nobody wants baseball's best hitter Boston Red Sox general manager Lou Gorman said Wednesday he is trying to trade five-time batting champion Wade Boggs but that no other team wants to make a deal Red Sox co-owner Haywood Sullivan decided to try to trade Boggs after the third baseman taped a television interview with Barbara Walters for ABC's "20-20" team sources said Boston officials have denied pressuring Boggs not to do the interview which focuses on his four-year affair with Margo Adams Club officials said privately that the Walters' interview made them decide to pursue a trade Drysdale buys Visalia — A corporation headed by Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale and including former Japanese great Tatsuro Hirooka has purchased the Visalia Oaks of Sac City too aggressive for Diablo By Bill Poindexter Bee Staff Writer Sacramento City College's baseball team put on its typical hitting display Tuesday in the championship game of its own Easter Tournament Batting averages were padded RBI totals beefed up and other statistics grew as well But the difference in the Panthers' 7-6 victory over Diablo Valley at the Sac City stadium won't show up on the next updated stat sheets Sac City (19-6) won for the 171h time in its last 20 games because of the intelligent decision-making and aggressive baserunning of Richie Kimm and Willie Smith Chris Jones' ability to deliver the game-winning hit after dropping a two-out fly ball that produced two unearned runs and two sparkling defensive plays in the top of the ninth inning by second baseman Fernando Vim "We did a lot of little things very well things that don't show up in the scorebook" coach Jerry Weinstein said Kimm's uniform — stained with red Sac City infield dirt — told the story of his day at work Kimm ripped two doubles and drove in the final run of a three-run fourth inning He scored the Panthers' first two runs mostly on his own creativity In the bottom of the first he scored from second on Smith's infield single racing around third as the throw went to first In the third his routine grounder went through the legs of shortstop Tim Foote When the Vikings were slow in retrieving the ball Kimm raced to second When the - Vikings threw the ball past second Kimm sped to third He then stole home for a 2-2 tie He scored both runs with two outs Smith nearly duplicated Kimm's performance in the seventh He blooped a one-out double for his third hit and hustled to third when Diablo Valley (18-9-1) couldn't decide where to throw the ball Jones who went 12 for 18 in the tournament then tripled Smith home with the game-winning run In the sixth Jones had dropped an easy fly ball that led to two runs and a 6-5 Diablo lead "That's the sign of a true competitor what he does when he gets knocked down" Weinstein said headlines again Wednesday not on the field but in the trainer's room "It wouldn't be me if I wasn't in the headlines" he joked "Boring old Jose Canseco But this could be worse I could have broken my wrist like my brother over there" Maybe he did If Canseco's wrist is broken or requires surgery he could be unable to swing a bat for four to six weeks And that would clear a spot in the lineup for Felix Jose the 23-year-old outfielder who many in the organization believe is ready to play in the majors He is hitting 351 this spring with a team-leading 16 runs batted in but he has been heading for another season at Triple-A Tacoma because the major-league club has no room for him This is not the way they would like to make room But Alderson said "You have to anticipate injuries You'd like them not to occur to certain people but any injury is a problem "In this case the injury involves a guy who's the Most Valuable Player in the American League" A's notebook — Pitching coach Dave Duncan explained why starters Dave Stewart and Mike Moore have been throwing on the same day — and in so doing Duncan revealed the A's pitching rotation for the first week of the season "Stewart pitches Game One and Moore pitches Game Five so they're working on the same day" Duncan said That lines up the A's rotation this way: Stewart against the Seattle Mariners on Opening Night Bob Welch against the Mariners after an off day Storm Davis against the Mariners on Thursday Curt Young against the Chicago White Sox on Friday and Moore making his A's debut Saturday against Chicago The A's made their 1986 trade for reliever Gene Nelson look even better Wednesday when they signed infielder Donnie Hill to a Triple-A contract Hill whom the White Sox released this spring was the player the A's traded for Nelson The
