The lndx-Joum, Gr nwood, g.C, Wad., May 13, 199211 Ac's Giross pfttcBaes masterpiece By The Associated Press If Kevin Gross ever pitched better, be probably did it against the Montreal Expos. Gross, in his 10th season, has made a career out of beating Montreal. The Los Angeles righthander did it again Tuesday night in one of his finest performances, striking out a career-high 13 in a complete-game three-hit shutout as the Dodgers beat the Expos 2-0. Gross improved to 13-4 with a 2.52 ERA against Montreal. It was his 12th shutout and first since June 11, 1990, against Philadelphia. "He was in control the whole game," said Delino DeShields, who would know since the second baseman struck out four times against Gross. "That's the best I've seen him throw since I've known him. You can't second-guess him. You have to tip your hat to him." Gross, who spent two seasons with Montreal before moving to Los Angeles last season, had the Expos baffled with his sharp-breaking curveball. He retired the first seven batters before Tom Foley doubled. During one stretch, Gross had five straight strikeouts. . . 1 I I STRAWBERRY Hits towering HR "Most of of my strikeouts were on curveballs," said Gross, who did not walk anyone. "My dut pitch was the curve. More than half my pitches were curvevballs because I had good command of them." Darryl Strawberry, who missed four games with a back strain and a viral infection, got all the runs LA needed in the first inning with a towering two-run homer in his first at-bat since May 5. Strawberry connected off Chris Hancy (2-2) on a monstrous blast to right center which was estimated at 475 feet and reached almost 200 feet at the top of its arc. "I'm not 100 percent, but it's nice to be back in the lineup," Strawberry said. 'The team has been struggling of late, so it was nice to help." Los Angeles, which got only its fourth complete game this season, ended a four-game losing streak with just its second victory in 11 games.

Braves bullpen converts save ATLANTA (AP) After a weekend of blown saves in St Louis, the Atlanta Braves' bullpen came through to preserve Tom Glavine's sixth victory of the season. Marvin Freeman pitched the ninth inning although he made it tense by walking two batters to pick up his second save Tuesday night in Atlanta's 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. L4W MARVIN FREEMAN sent Pittsburgh to its second straight defeat for only the second time this season. The Pirates have, the. best record in the major leagues at 21-10. Glavine (6-1) became the second pitcher in the National League willi six wins, tying San Francisco's Bill Swift. Freeman, normally a middle reliever, who only has three career saves, said the ninth inning was what the fans want. "They don't come out to watch boring stuff," said Freeman. "They want to see excitement, drama, tension. So I thought I'd provide it." The right-hander got pinch-hitter Cecil Espy for the first out of the inning before walking Barry Bonds and Steve Buechele. He then struck out Jeff King and got Don Slaught on a soft grounder to third to end the game. "Marvin was ready tonight," said Atlanta manager Bobby Cox when asked why he chose Freeman over regular closer Alejandro Pena. "They'll all get their chances. "Freeman threw good. He did walk those two though and make it a little nervous," he said. The Braves had blown a 9-0 lead Saturday night in St, Louis, losing 12-11 in the ninth inning. Freemai. was the loser in that one. Atlanta then lost 6-5 in the ninth Sunday when the Cardinals rallied for two runs in the final inning off Pena. "I put the St. Louis game out of my mind," said Freeman. "Those kind of games happen only once a year." He said he was "thinking too much instead of just throwing the Pittsburgh Reeaaaf Beta VaStytcf tfcOda Ik Bwtk Boadab Badb)3b Ka 2b ball," on giving up the two bases on balls. "I'm no Rhodes scholar, so I just went back to doing what I do naturally rear back and fire the ball and everything worked out," said Freeman. "What happened to them in St, Louis can happen to anyone," said Pittsburgh managr Jim Leyland. . "They aren't going to collapse. If you expect them to collapse, you're going to get beat" Glavine allowed six hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out six in . eight innings. He threw 120 pitches and Cox decided he had thrown enough. "I had thrown a lot of pitches and was getting a little tired," said Glavine, who gave up both Pittsburgh runs in the fourth on a two-run single by Buechele. . "I know the bullpen has been struggling, but I wasn't concerned," he. said. "We've all struggled at some point this year and they showed they were capable last year." "It was a typical Glavine performance," said Leyland. "He had good stuff. When he does, he pitches through it "We've just got too many, people who aren't producing right now," he said. The Braves offense was led by Ron Gant who had a pair of RBIs on a groundout and RBI single.' Otis Nixon had three hits and scored twice, Damon Berryhill had a pair of hits and an RBI single and Sid Bream added a run-scoring double. : t The Braves scored all their runs hi the first three innings off Pittsburgh starter Randy Tomlin (4-2). The triumph snapped the Braves' losing streak at three and G-Braves can't hang on KNOXVTLLE, Tenn. (AP) Juan De La Rosa hit a three-run homer Tuesday to lift the Knoxville Blue Jays, to a 6-4 come-from-behind victory over the Greenville Braves in the Southern League. The Jays trailed 4-0 after the first inning but got three runs in the seventh inning highlighted by Robert Perez' RBI single. He then scored on a throwing error to pull Knoxville within 4-3. De La Rosa's home run, his second of the year, gave Knoxville the winning margin in the bottom of the eighth. Knoxville reliever Mark Ohlms retired the first three Greenville batters in the ninth to earn his fourth save of the year, and Paul Menhart (2-3) scattered five hits over eight innings for the victory. , Don Strange dropped to 0-2 with the loss for Greenville.
