C7 Stockton silences Griffey-less Spirit on five singles, 5-2 SUNDAY. Juno By JIM LONG Sun Sports Writer STOCKTON Soldiers wouldn't want to go into combat without their guns. Surgeons wouldn't want to operate without their scalpels. And the San Bernardino Spirit would not want be in the middle of a hot California League Southern Division pennant chase without offensive leader Ken GrifTey Jr. Trouble is, the Spirit will have to do without him for awhile. The Spirit got away with it Friday night and beat the Stockton Ports, 3-2 in 12 innings. But the Spirit couldn't win without Griffey on Saturday as a stiff back kept the star center fielder out of the lineup in a 5-2 loss to the Ports before 734 fans at Hilly Hebert Field. The loss made this tight pennant chase just that much tighter for San Bernardino (34-29). Riverside (34-28) beat Visalia (35-29) while Palm Springs (35- 29) downed Bakersfield, keeping the Spirit a half-game out of first place in the division. Griffey a lefthanded power hitter with 11 home runs, a .338 batting average and 32 steals is scheduled to return to Southern California today and will be examined in Los Angeles by a staff member of renowned sports physician Dr. Frank Jobe on Monday. "I'm sure the other kids think they have to do more," said Ports manager Dave Huppert. "They think they have to do more than they're capable of doing, instead of playing within themselves." Spirit manager Ralph Dick said before Saturday's game that GrifTey "can't even walk." Trainer Chris Verna said it was a flare-up of an old back problem Griffey has had since high school and his rookie league days at Bellingham, Wash., a year ago. What it meant at Billy Hebert Field was one less power hitting left-hander in a ballpark that surely favors such a player. The wind blows from left to right field and a hitter like Griffey is capable of burning a pitcher any time. "I've only seen five or six (home runs) go out of left field this season." said Huppert. Ports starting and winning pitcher Randy Veres (3-2) wanted to go about his business as best he could without worrying about Griffey's absence. "If you think about one batter too often, then you don't concentrate about the guy in front of him." said Veres, who scattered five harmless singles while striking out seven and walking three. "The guy who's in front can hurt you. "I don't think it hurts them that muc h. They (the Spirit) have a pretty good hitting team with or without him." Nevertheless, the Spirit missed its home run co-leader who also has the club's best batting average. Griffey also leads the league in steals. Verna and Dick are not sure how long it will take to get Griffey back. "On this type of thing, you don't know how long it'll take," said Verna before Satunl.iv game. Th Spirit's only runs eame w hen third kiM-m.m William Diaz scored on a double play ground ball hit by center fielder Ted Williams in the first inning and a run scoring double by Williams ( 1 lor 4 1 in tin-ninth that cut a 5-1 lead to 5 2. None of that made life any easier for Spirit start ing pitcher Jeff Nelson (5 4), who suffered the lo after he was shelled for four earned runs and five hits in Is i inningsofwork.

The win propelled the Red Wave over the Oaks into first place in the California League's Southern Division. Shortstop Tom LaVassuer scored twice and drove home two runs for the Red Wave, which is in a first-place tie with the Palm Springs Angels. Both teams have 35-28 records. Brian Wood allowed seven runs on seven hits over eight innings, but it was good enough to pick up the win. Wood struck out nine and walked four. Moses wins in 1988 debut Associated Press TUCSON, Ariz. Edwin Moses ran the fastest season-opening performance of his career Saturday night, winning the 400-meter intermediate hurdles in 48.38 seconds at the Tucson Elite Track and Field Classic. It w as his first race of 1988. Moses, 32, w ho had won 122 consecutive races before he lost to fellow American Danny Harris at Madrid, Spain, last June, said he wasn't disappointed at being CALIFORNIA LEAGUE AVERAGES more than a second off his world-record mark of 47.03 after his first race of 1988. "I just decided to compete two days ago," Moses said. "I've been on a long program since December. I believe the best opening-day time I have ever had is 48.5." The time was the second-best in the world in '88, bettered only by UCLA's Kevin Young at 47.85. EZ Financing Wjiot BciKi in SIiNd RSA (714)882 2351 l?Mlt (Malta. HAIR TRANSPLANTS See Dr. John L.
