C6 The Sun SUNDAY, May 15, 1988 Season record for balks broken in only 41 days Associated Press NEW YORK The moment all of baseball was waiting for finally came. The single-season balk record was broken Saturday night. ., The countdown stopped because Atlanta's Rick Mahler did not. Mahler committed Balk No. 357 in the 12th inning against St. Louis when he did not pause with Vince Coleman on first base. An inning earlier, St. Louis' Todd Worrell made the record-tying balk. ; r, American League pitchers, however, are still leading the balk parade. They have balked 242 times. National Leaguers have been called for 1 15. All in just 41 days, compared to only 91 balks at this time in 1987. This season, though, balks and the tighter balk rules are the talk of baseball. "We still remind our pitchers every day, even during the game, that they have to come to a full stop," Philadelphia pitching coach Claude Osteen said. "They get in the heat of battle, and they think they shove it into their gut and then go, and they think it's a stop," Osteen said. " And that's not what the league wants. They made it clear that they're not going to allow it. So, you can't fight city hall." Oakland's Dave Stewart already has 11 balks, matching the mark for an entire season set by Steve Carlton in 1979. UCR splits with San Luis Obispo RIVERSIDE Sophomore third baseman Mike Eatinger pounded home five runs on 6-for-9 hitting for UC Riverside as it closed out its California Collegiate Athletic Association season by splitting a Saturday double-header with Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Cal Poly won the first game, 8-5. UCR won the second, 10-1. Eatinger a San Gorgonio High School alumnus led the Highlanders in hitting with a .374 batting average and topped the CCAA with 77 hits. UCR ended the regular season with a 17-13 conference record for second place (29-25 overall). The Highlanders' slim NCAA playoff hopes will be determined Monday when the berths are decided.
