Red Wave keeps lead with win RIVERSIDE - Ricky Bones fired a five-hitter for Riverside which rallied for a 3-2 California League baseball victory over the Bakersfield Dodgers in front of 512 fans at the Riverside Sports Center Wednesday night. Riverside overcame a 2-1 deficit with single runs in the sixth and seventh innings as the Red Wave remained atop the California League Southern Division. Bones struck out three without a walk for the Red Wave which holds a slim lead over the Visalia Oaks with a week and a half to go in the first half of the Cal League season. The Oaks downed the Modesto A's Wednesday 3-2. Riverside loaded the bases in the seventh inning with Tommy Le .Vasseur scoring the game-winner as second baseman Paul Faries looped a fly that fell in front of the Bakersfield right fielder who tripped over the second baseman. Spirit: Loses 7th straight game Continued fromC1 lini Field. For Dick, the post-game airing was a move to try and stem the rising tide of self-doubt that seems to be washing over the Spirit. San Bernardino, which led the Southern Division of the California League by three games a week ago, has lost seven straight games and nine of its last 10 to fall into third place, VA games behind co-leaders Riverside and Visalia. "I didn't jump on anybody," said Dick. "I said: 'I know you know what they did, and you know what you did, and anybody in the stands who knows anything about baseball knows what you did.' So getting on anybody would have just made them feel this big, and they feel this big already." They very well might after Wednesday night. The 16 Palm Springs runs was the most scored against the Spirit this season. San Bernardino starter Jim Blueberg, one of the team's top pitchers, suffered through his second poor outing in a row, allowing 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits in 3'a innings. Blueberg (7-4) also gave up all three homers while walking three, striking out one and hitting one batter. But he was not the only guilty party on the field. The San Bernardino bullpen allowed six more runs, and the Spirit defense committed six errors. "What I told the guys tonight was that we have to start having a positive attitude toward the game," said Dick. "Each guy needs to sit down and formulate a plan where they can get back to the point where they were playing well. Right now, the expectation that we're going to get the job done isn't there. The expectation we have now is that we're going to screw up." "He said what needed to be said," said Spirit reliever Pat Rice, who gave up five runs in 4 innings Wednesday. "He had a little heart-to-heart, and maybe it will click. Maybe that snowball will start rolling the other way." The Angels broke open the game by exploding for seven runs in the fourth inning to wipe out a 4-3 deficit. The outburst included a three-run homer by third baseman Chris Cron and a two-run shot by shortstop Jeff Barns. Right fielder Gary Nails had hit a two-run shot earlier that gave Palm Springs an early 2-0 lead in the second inning. Palm Springs reliever Bill Vanderwel (2-4) got the win, going 2 innings and allowing no runs on just one hit. The Spirit had nine hits, with shortstop Bryan King going 2-for-3 and designated hitter Jose Tar-tabull picking up a pair of RBI. After falling behind early on Nails' home run, the Spirit bat tied back to take a 4-3 lead going into the fourth. But then, as Dick said, "The bottom seemed to drop out." Spirit notes Spirit center fielder Ken Griffey has been voted Cal League Player of the Month for May by the league's managers. Through May 31, Griffey was batting .346 in 49 games with nine home runs and 37 RBI. The 18-year-old Griffey led the league in total bases (109). slugging prcentage (.580) and stolen bases (30 in 36 attempts). "It's a great honor to be selected," said Griffey. "I'd like to thank the Seattle Mariners for letting me play in the California League, and my mother and father for bringing me into the world." . . . Spirit pitcher Todd Hayes, who has a bone spur on his right (throwing) elbow, is undergoing ultra-sound treatment and is tentatively scheduled to begin throwing again Friday, according to trainer Chris Verna. . . . Palm Springs catcher John Orion was out of the lineup Wednesday due to a sore elbow. Angels manager Bill Lachemann said Orton has an appointment today with Dr. Lewis Yocum, the California Angels' team physician. . . . Mariners roving pitching coach Ross Grimslcy ended his visit to San Bernardino Tuesday. While Grimsley was with the team, the Spirit lost six straight. . . . Righthander Dave Burba (1-3) will take the mound for the Spirit tonight at 7:05 against Angels right-hander Jim Long (2-4). THURSDAY, June 9 1983 The Sun C3 m i,jiiin!ii . rm: jww u ik 1 11 wm-.
