Trevino fights way to lead The Associated Press PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Two-thirds of a Hall of Fame threesome floundered and failed Saturday, opening the gate to a new set of challengers to Lee Trevino in the final round of the PGA Seniors Championship. While Trevino was fighting his way to a third round 71, good enough to retain a three-shot lead, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player drifted back into the pack, all but taking themselves out of title contention. Nicklaus, the defending champion, shot 74 and Player, a three-time winner of this event, had a 3-over-par 75. They were tied at 215, a single stroke under par at PGA National and eight off the pace. "I don't think Jack was feeling very good," Trevino said. "I think his back was bothering him. He was quitting on shots, spinning out." The decline of Nicklaus and Player before the largest gallery of the day, provided an opening to last-round challenges by Mike Hill, Dave Stockton and Chi Chi Rodriguez, tied for second at 210, three behind Trevino's leading 207. "Close enough to make it interesting," Stockton said after his 4-under-par 68. Stockton, captain of the successful 1991 U.S. Ryder Cup team and a rookie on the over-50 circuit, found himself in title contention for the first time in more than a decade. "It's been a long time," said the Mentone resident. "It's fun, fun to hit some good shots under pressure." Love recovers from first-hole bogey to lead Heritage Classic by 3 strokes . HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. Davis Love III couldn't believe what he had done. What a way to start the third round of the Heritage Classic with a bogey. "I was kind of in shock," the 28-year-old defending champ said. "But there was a long way to go. "There was no real panic. I was just kind of upset with myself. You're going to do stupid things once in a while." Love may have started slow, but he finished fast with birdies on four of the last six holes Saturday to take a 3-stroke lead. Love, who is trying to become the first golfer to win the Heritage three times and the second Chang advances to Salem HONG KONG Michael Chang outlasted Australian Todd Woodbridge 6-3, 6-7 (7-6), 6-1 Saturday and will play the winner of the other Salem Open semifinal between Jim Courier and Brad Gilbert for the title. Courier was leading Gilbert 2-1 in the first set before rain interrupted the match. It will be resumed today before the final. Chang had to wait out two long rain delays to beat Wood-bridge and reach his fourth final of the year. "Once I had waited so long, I didn't want to go home yet," said Chang, who has won three tournaments this year. "I felt good and very relaxed. Todd seemed to rush it at the second set and then he calmed down. Little things seemed to bother him more and more."

Trevino holds a three-shot lead going into today's final round. Golf roundup to capture consecutive titles, shot his third straight 4-under-par 67 for a 54-hole score of 12-under 201. "I only hit a few bad shots," Love said. "I missed a lot of putts. But it just didn't seem like anybody is holing a lot of putts." Love has now led or been tied for the lead in six of the last seven rounds at Harbour Town Golf Links. The one time he wasn't on top, he was a mere stroke behind. Mark O'Meara, who birdied the first three holes to take a 3-stroke lead but played the back side in 1-over, is alone in second after a 70 that left him at 204.

Deb Richard shot a 1-under-par 71 to lead the SEGA Women's Championship by two shots over fast-closing Dottie Mochrie. Richard, who had only three bogeys in the first two rounds, appeared to be coasting to a comfortable lead when she had a double bogey-6 on the 17th. Mochrie, winner of the Dinah Shore last month, surged into second place with an eagle-3 on the final hole for a 4-under-par 68. Rialto's Brandie Burton shot a 72 Saturday and is seven behind Richard.

It happened again Saturday night as the Spirit wasted a solid pitching performance by righthander Dave Adam, losing 2-1 to Bakersfield in front of 2,368 fans at Sam Lynn Ball Park. The loss the second in a row to the Dodgers left San Bernardino 3-7 overall and already a paltry 0-5 in one-run games. "Oh-and-five? That's amazing," Spirit catcher Tony Kounas said. "Hopefully that will work itself out. I think for all but one game (a loss to Salinas April 11), we've been in all of the games. We Just need the key hits." "I honestly think we have a good ball club," Adam said. "Things just aren't bouncing our way. I think we'll come around." Adam (0-1) went six innings, Hornsby wins at Orange Show The Sun SAN BERNARDINO Rob Hornsby of Rialto raced 35 laps Saturday night to win the Modified Ponys event before a crowd of 4,107 at Orange Show Speedway.

Bakersfield starter Ross Farnsworth (1-0) earned the victory, going six strong innings, allowing three hits, one unearned run, two walks and striking out three. Mike Sharp earned his first save, retiring all four Spirit batters he faced. The three hits by the Spirit was a season low, as was the one run. After giving up two runs in the first inning and leaving the bases loaded in the second, Adam settled down. The right-hander, who missed all of 1991 with a right shoulder injury, retired nine in a row at one point and 12 of the last 13 batters he faced. However, his teammates could only get him one run. "He had a little trouble finding spots in the first inning," Kounas said. "He seemed to be behind in the count all night." "I was uncomfortable for drews was third.
