Q """irmTiiiift- Southern Ulinoisan photo by JOHN MCCUTCHEN Winning form: Dale Kisten pitched SIU to a 2-1 first-game victory Saturday. U sharp in tuneup By Scott Monserud Of The Southern Ulinoisan CARBONDALE Three weeks down, one to go, and all signs point to a banner wrapup to Southern Illinois University's spring football workouts. The Salukis went through their third major scrimmage of the spring Saturday, a 24-hour workout with concentration on game-like drills. Coach Ray Dorr liked what he saw. "We got the number of plays we needed to get," he said. "From a learning type situation, this was the toughest scrimmage we put the players through. We did call the plays, but we didn't coach them as much. I think they performed very well... "For the second week in a row the receivers caught the ball very well. I thought we looked very good on both sides of the ball in the two-minute offense. We wanted to see both sides have success and I think they did." Second string quarterback Pat King threw one long touchdown pass, a 50-yarder to Chontal Brown, but also threw into coverage too often to please his coach. "He showed his ability to make the big play and showed again he's going to force the football," Dorr said. "He can't do that. That is critical." Quarterback Kevin Brown and defensive end Shannon Ferbrache did not play due to injuries that Dorr termed minor. Defensive tackle Brad Crouse was home, due to an illness in the family. By Daryl Van Schouwen Of The Southern Ulinoisan CARBONDALE - Doug Shields was talking about his freshman year at Southern Illinois University when he said, "before you know it, the ball is by you." mat nas oeen a familiar happening for Shields, a draft choice of the Baltimore Orioles last June who came to SIU rated among the top 40 high school players in the nation by Baseball America. The ball had gone by Shields 22 Dou9 Shle,ds times for strikeouts in 76 at-bats prior to Saturday's second game between SIU and Illinois State at Abe Martin Field. Shields whiffed at bad pitches. He watched good ones go by. "I've been fighting myself," Shields said. In the first game Saturday, Shields continued to lose the good fight by striking out three times in four at-bats. The other time he unsuccessfully tried to bunt for a hit. His batting average dipped to .236. No harm done, however the Salukis won, 2-1. Then, in the second game, Shields showed signs of becoming the player SIU fans expect. He banged out four hits, including two doubles, in five at-bats as SIU bombed Illinois State 17-1.

"I came up in the second game with a different attitude," said the right-handed hitting outfielder from Cincinnati. "Coach said to go out there and have fun. He said that's why I'm here, to have fun." Shields lined a fastball into right-center field for a double in his first at-bat as the Salukis rolled out to a big lead. The bigger the lead, the more Shields relaxed. "It had a snowball effect," Shields said. Shields said he feels the pressure of replacing right fielder Charlie Hillemann, who injured his thumb Monday and is out for the year. Hillemann was batting .338. "There's a lot of pressure picking up the slack for Charlie because he's a big asset to our team," said Shields, who has been a utility player and sometimes designated hitter most of the year. "Itch was saying, though, that everybody has Home run derby in Wichita WICHITA, Kansas Indiana State pounded out 24 hits as the Sycamores mauled Wichita State, 23-9, in the first game of a double-header here Saturday. The Sycamores and Shockers combined for 13 home runs in a game played with a 30-mile an hour wind blowing out of the ballpark, Wichita State won game two, 19-6, as three home runs were hit, all by Wichita. Mike Gardner, 8-3, went all the way for the Sycamores in game one. Wichita State used five pitchers. Indiana State's Boi Rodriguez went 4-for-6, including one of seven home runs for Indiana State. The 23 runs tied a school record for the highest number of runs in one game. to pick up five ' (batting average) points for Charlie. He didn't expect me to pick up all 50." Shields was just happy to pick up his own share after the double-header sweep of the Redbirds. So was Jones, who has to sympathize with a freshman playing through a slump. "Poor Doug Shields," said Jones. "He's in a tough situation." But he's in it because of his own ability. He'll play because of his outstanding throwing arm and speed. Anything he produces at the plate is gravy. "He was a power hitter in high school," said Jones, "but right now he has to be a contact hitter. When he gets experience, then he'll be both. If he can make contact he can help us now because he can run." Shields did both in game two. O A.P.R.
