THE UKI A« DAILY JOURNAL. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,1987—13 Friday night baseball N.L., A.L. races remain tight The New York Mete acquired John Candelaria this week to help win toother pennant For one game anyway, he helped St Louis hold its first-place margin. Darryl Strawberry's three-run homer in the first inning staked Candelaria to an early lead against Pittsburgh. But in 1 1-3 innings against his former club, the left-hander allowed five runs and eight hits and the Pirates went on to beat the Mets 10-9 Friday night The Mets remained VA games behind the East Division-leading Cardinals, who lost 8-1 to Chicago. Mike Diaz's fourth hit of the game, a two-run double in the seventh inning, broke an 8-8 tie. John Smiley, 4-4, pitched the eighth inning for the victoty as the Pirates won for the 10th time in their last 12 games. Jim Oott pitched the ninth for his 12th save. Elsewhere in the NL it was; Cubs 8, Cardinals 1 Rick Sutcliffe pitched a four-hitter and Chicago took advantage or sloppy defense to beat the Cardinals at St Louis. Sutcliffe, 17-8, struck out nine and walked one, and also contributed a sacrifice fly. At one point, the right-haoder retired 16 of 17 batters. The Cardinals ended a streak of 20 scoreless innings on Tony Pena's RBI groundout in the eighth. Danny Cox, 9-8, was the loser. Expos 6, Phillies 3 Bryn Smith pitched six shutout innings and Andres Galarraga drove in two runs as Montreal defeated Philadelphia at Olympic Stadium to move within two games of St Louis. Padres 2, Astros 1 Benito Santiago extended his hitting streak to 22 games and drove in the game-winning run as San Diego defeated Houston at the Astrodome. Trailing 1-0, Tony Owynn led off the Padres' eighth with a single and moved to second on Shane Mack's sacrifice bunt Dave Smith, 2-1, relieved starter Jim Deshaies and pinch-hitter John Kruk singled to score Gwynn. Kruk stole second, moved to third on third baseman Ken Caminiti's throwing error, and scored on Santiago's ground ball. Dodgers 7, Braves 4 John Shelby keyed a six-run sixth inning with a three-run homer as Los Angeles defeated visiting Atlanta. . „ . Orel Hershiser, 16-13, struck out eight, walked none en route to his ninth complete game. IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE Athletics 4, Royals 0 Steve Ontiveros and two relievers combined on a four-hitter and Mike Davis hit a two-run homer and scored twice, leading Oakland over Kansas City. The victory moved the Athletics into second place in the AL West, 3Vi.. games behind Minnesota and a half-game ahead of the Royals. Ontiveros raised his record to 9-8 with relief help from Eric Plunk and Dennis Eckersley, who gained his 13th save. Tigers 7, Brewers 6 You can't blame Walt Terrell for wanting to pitch in Tiger Stadium. Jus't for the record, he's 31-7 lifetime there. Terrell pitched five-hit, one-run ball over eight innings, improving his record to 15-10 and 12-2 at home this year as he helped the Tigers maintain a half-game lead over Toronto in the American League East ' Detroit's Darrell Evans hit a historic home run in the fifth that made him the first player in major league history to hit 30 homers at the age of 40. Ted Williams, in 1960, hit 29 home runs when he was 42. Blue Jays 6, Yankees 3 Willie Upshaw hit a two-run homer and Jesse Barfield also drove in two runs as Toronto beat New York. Upshaw connected off Neil Allen, 0-8, who was making his first start for the Yankees since signing as a free agent Sept. 4. Tim Clancy, 14-10, gave up three runs in five innings for the victory. Jeff Musselman took over in the sixth and gave way in the eighth to David Wells, who had his first major league save. Mariners 1, White Sox 0 Mark Langston, aided by Scott Bradley's sixth- inning RBI single, won his career-high 18th game and took over the major league strikeout lead to pace Seattle over Chicago. Langston walked four and struck out six, taking over the strikeout lead from Houston's Nolan Ryan, 237-235. Twins 9, Indians 4 Randy Bush drove in five runs with a homer, single and sacrifice fly, leading Minnesota over Cleveland. The AL West-leading Twins snapped a three-game losing streak by improving their major-league- leading home record to 50-23. At Cincinnati today Miners look for better effort today CINCINNATI (AP) — With receiver Jerry Rice slowed by a knee injury, the San Francisco 49ers weren't able to connect on the bomb in their National Football League season opener. The result was a bomb of a different sort San Francisco wasn't able to run effectively or throw deep in a 30-17 drubbing by the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. The 49ers were left with a short-and medium-range passing attack that lacked punch. Coach Bill Walsh is looking to put some of the bite back into the offense this week against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 1-0. "Through the years, we've been one of the better running teams in football, and we're just being shut out at this point," Walsh said. "So we're forced to go to the intermediate pass, and you're going to look pretty bad losing with that kind of an .offense." The 49ers rushed for 47 yards on 20 plays against the Steelers, forcing quarterback Joe Montana to throw 49 times. He completed 34 passes for 316 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but had three of his throws interceptions. •That's about as badly as we've played or as badly as we've been beaten in regular-season play in the last seven or eight years," Walsh said. Rice is still slowed by the knee problem, but expects to play Sunday at Riverfront Stadium. He realizes the importance of having a deep threat "I really don't think this knee is going to bother me. I've got to come up with some big plays and try to get the offense on track," Rice said. Bengals Coach Sam Wyche has noticed that Montana, who had back surgery last September to remove a ruptured disc,- has changed his style. Wyche coached Montana as an assistant with San Francisco from 1979 to 1982 "I don't know whether by design or for whatever reason, I don't see him throwing the bombs like he did in his early years," Wyche said. "When he does move (out of the pocket), he looks as mobile, but he doesn't move as often. He looks like he'fe more disciplined to stay in there and take the short pass. "He's living more by whatl call a layoff or a dump pass or a short- intermediate pass, where you just get the ball out of his hand into somebody else's rather than having to scramble." Wyche said Montana presents problems because he can complete an intermediate-range toss under pressure. "That's where he's always been good," Wyche said. "He just kills you because you will defense him, defense the 49ers, and then as the play begins to collapse, he'll find somebody late open and hit them."

Uklah did beat the Marin County visitors 5-2 to up their early-season record to 3-0. Ukiahi booters in weekend sweep By GLENN ERICKSON Journal Sports Editor Enwrttin Ukiahi's steadily-improving boys' soccer team notched its second and third straight victories of the young '87 season Friday night and Saturday by two-timing Marin Academy, 3-1 and 5-2 on the Ukiahi Stadium turf. Those driving by, but not stopping, Friday night might have wondered who Ukiahi was playing (American) football under the lights. It was international football, soccer, and more and more the Ukiahi team of coaches Dennis Lucido and Ken Budrow is looking like a real soccer team, not American footballers learning a new sport. At least against the admittedly below NBL standard opposition faced so far. The front-line sparked by Matt Eiffert, Shawn Rothrock, Shokie Lopez and Co., supported by Cliff Lucido, Jere Hutchison, Brian Ferguson, Geof O'Quest, Jeff Rhodes and others, kept the pressure on the Wildcats of Marin Academy. In fairness, Marin Academy is a private San Rafael school of 250 students whose soccer team has at least six sophomores, and was 0-2-1 before bowing twice to large-school Ukiah. It had tied Novato, 3-3, lost to big-school soccer-power Vintage of Napa, 6-0, three goals coming in the last five minutes of the game; and had lost, 4-0, to crosstown power Marin Catholic, 4-0. Rangy and able to trap the ball well, Marin Academy still was frustrated by the Ukiahi defense directed by Barrett Crook and Troy Madill. Marin was pressured constantly by the threatened break-away s of Rothrock, Eifert, closely- guarded Shokie Lopez, content to feed when covered, and others. In its first two home games, after an opening 4-1 midweek victory at Fort Bragg, a soccer team just getting into high school play, the Ukiahi boys' varsity team showed great improvement in ball-control and soccer-finesse, compared to the first Ukiahi team of five seasons ago. However, despite the three or more goals and assists each in the two Marin games by Shawn Rothrock, and the sco ing of Matt Eifert, Cliff Luci< \ Shokie Lopez and others, U, i i.; much fine-tuning to be done n the days ahead before NBL play begins. The progress, however, appears steady and positive, including goal-tending by Charles Suthard and John Mirata, which frees Troy Madill for sweeper duty.
