(AP) Sometimes in the course of a t h l e t i c c o m p e t i t i o n , a monstrous irony can arise Tuesday night in Royals Stadium, it arose. Kevin Bell stroked a two-run double off comeback weary Steve Busby and chased the once-great right-hander to the showers. Bell, the Chicago White Sox' third baseman, was the last batter Busby faced in Royals Stadium before his shoulder surgery in July 1976 derailed one of the most promising careers on the scene. That day four years ago, Bell's inside-the-park grand slam home run sent the White Sox to victory and Busby to the showers. Tuesday night, Bell's two- run double sent the White Sox to a 6-1 victory and Busby to the shwers. "That's really ironic, isn't it?" said Bell. "I think I was the last hitter he faced here before they operated on him. I thought he had pretty good stuff. He was just getting behind me in the count " BROOKS SALES MUTING COOLING FOR FAST SERVICE ON ANY BRAND CALL: 646-6424 TONIGHT-THURSDAY CLINT EASTWOOD "UONCO BILLY"ira FRI-SAT-SUN July 25-26-27 3 DAYS ONLY STAtTS MONDAY,JULY 28 ALSO WED- THURS,JULY 30-31 2 HITS TOGETHER!

"I never did have a comfortable feeling about the game." he said "This is the first time this year Trout has pitched with three days rest.

An eclipse, however, set in in 1978 after he shut out the Dodgers 4 0 in May He then spent most of the next two seasons in the minors, finally returning last month to lend aid to an injury-riddled staff. "I can't pinpoint it," Urrea said of the problems he had encountered. "I felt my Parker demands trade SAN DIEGO ( A P ) - Ail- Star outfielder Dave Parker, upset that he's become a target of homepark fans, says he's "reached the point of no return" in Pittsburgh and wants the Pirates to trade him. His trade demand came two days after the latest fan abuse incident involving the National League's l!)7H Most Valuable Player and two-time batting champion. Parker, who took a 284 batting average with 12 home runs and 52 runs batted into Tuesday night': game, walked off the field in the eighth T. mg of a doubleheader opener last Sunday in Pittsburgh after a spectator nearly hit him with a transistor radio battery The 29-year-old outfielder sat out the second game, won by Pittsburgh 8-7 over Los Angeles. "It is in the best interests of both parties -- the city of Pittsburgh and myself -- to complete my career without bodily harm," said Parker. "Whoever feels that strongly about Dave Parker, we can eliminate that problem." Pirates' Manager Chuck Tanner said Parker has become the target of "a sick person " Parker said he's informed the Pirates' front office that they "have to get me out of town, period." If traded, terms of his contract (.ofine the list of potential team to nine, including C i n c i n n a t i , his hometown. Other teams he identified Tuesday are the Los Angeles Dodgers, California Angels and Atlanta Rravc.s - SAVE Up To *7.00 Per 20 Gal. On Your Next Fill Up!

You can believe in yourself, but someone else has to believe in you,too " One who believed firmly in Urrea, especially after Tuesday night, was St Louis starter Jim Kaat. Ron Cey hammered the veteran left-hander for a home run and Pedro Guerrero touched him for an RBI single in the second inning. Then in the third, after a single and two walks, Urrea came on to get out of the jam by inducing Mickey Hatcher to ground into a double play. In the seventh, Dane lorg led off with a double off Don Sutton, 7-3. Ken Reitz sacrificed, Ken Oberkfell was intentionally walked and Kennedy pinch-hit for Urrea by delivering his sacrifice fly to left The Cards' victory, their third in a row, dropped the Dodgers' record on a 13-game tour of four cities to 3-9, with one contest Jeft "We had a chance to score more runs, and we didn't," Los Angeles Manager Tom Lasorda said bleakly "That's what happens when you're in a slump " Have You Had Enough ... when it seems the only thing politicians and bureaucrats can do well is take care of themselves through wages, perquisites and pensions at your expense?
