C4 The Sun THURSDAY, July 22, 1993 Spirit unable to finish off Pilots By Jason Foster Special to The Sun SAN BERNARDINO New life does a lot for a team. Men left on base do nothing. The Spirit saw these two axioms materialize Wednesday night at Fiscalini Field as it fell to the Riverside Pilots 7-4 in 11 innings in front of 1,453 fans. Carlos Perez had a 4-3 lead and was one out away from defeating the Pilots, but he couldn't quite finish it. Craig Bryant, the last man standing between Perez and his third complete game this year, smashed a run-scoring double with two out in the top of the ninth to tie the game 4-4. Riverside, back from the brink, then ripped reliever Jim Ferguson (2-3) for three runs in the top of the 11th. The loss snapped the Spirit's modest three-game win streak. It is 12-15 in the second half. A day after amassing a season-high 19 hits, the Spirit bats returned to earth Wednesday. Despite solo home runs from Michael Figga and Steve Phillips, they got only eight hits and were O-for-5 with the bases loaded. They left 12 men on base, seven in scoring position. "Those bases-loaded (situations) hurt us," Spirit manager Greg Mahlberg said. "We also had a runner at third in the eighth. You've got to drive in those people." The Spirit had the bases loaded in the second inning with no out and in the seventh with one out. In the second. Pilots starter Dave Evans struck out the side, and in the seventh, reliever Jeff Borski (3-1) got Tim Scott to pop out and Ray Cervantes to ground out. "We saw some decent pitching," Mahlberg said. "And we were up there not thinking about what we were doing." Bryant put the Pilots up 2-0 when he jumped on a Perez fastball for a two-run homer in the second inning. But Evans, who pitched for the old Spirit club in 1990, couldn't make the lead stick. Figga halved Evans' advantage with a solo homer to right-center to lead off the bottom of the inning before Evans made his escape. Phillips tagged him for another solo shot in the third to tie the score 2-2. Sean Twitty broke the stalemate in the fourth inning, scoring Manny Martinez from second with a single to left. Chris Widger evened the game in the seventh when he crushed a solo homer that just stayed fair as it hooked high over the left-field foul screen. San Bernardino took the lead right back when Figga bunted Twitty home in the bottom of the inning to make the score 4-3. Perez (nine innings, seven hits, six strikeouts, two walks) was one out away from the complete game and the win, but Bryant doubled home Fred McNair to send the game into extra innings. Tim Davis earned his third save for Riverside (16-13). Spirit Note The Spirit have won four consecutive games or more only twice this season. They had a four-game streak and a five-game streak way back in April. San Bernardino's Steve Shoemaker (6-2) will face Riverside's Jim Gutierrez (7-7) at 7:05 tonight at Fiscalini Field to conclude the series and the homestand. Quakes blanked in San Jose The Sun SAN JOSE Center fielder Ira Smith and left fielder Bill Robbs each had a hit to make up the offense for Rancho Cuca-monga, as the Quakes fell 2-0 to the San Jose Giants on Wednes-. day. The Quakes (9-18). who now ; have a five-game losing streak, ; are in last place in the Southern ' Division. Left-hander Fernando Her nandez took the loss, giving up two runs and five hits in eight innings. San Jose jumps to 14-14 in the Northern Division, 2'i games behind first-place Stockton (16-11). Left fielder Ron Pezzoni went 2-for-3 and scored a run for the Giants. Right fielder Jason Mc-Farlin had a hit with an RBI. Center fielder Calvin Murray had a hit and a run. Left-hander Ivan Alvarez picked up the win, giving up no runs and one hit in six innings. Mavericks fall to Rockies , By Jim Long 'Special to The Sun ADELANTO Another dramatic finish was set up Wednesday for the High Desert Mavericks. This time, though, they couldn't complete the act. The Mavericks, 16-13 in one-run games, almost made a goat of Central Valley Rockies reliever Kyle Duke. But pinch-hitter Chris Malinoski struck out with Bryn Kosco standing on first base for the final out of a 4-3 loss the Mavericks suffered before 1,748 at Maverick Stadium. The Mavericks (16-11 second half, 60-35 overall) couldn't do a thing with Rockies starter John Burke, but Duke was another matter altogether. Duke started the ninth in place of Burke (7-8), who allowed just two hits (both to Jesus Tava-rez). Tavarez opened the ninth with a double and John Toale followed with a single. Tavarez scored on Tim Clark's single that followed Toale's hit. Toale came home to make it 4-3 when Scott Samuels hit into a double play. " e- J 'V " ' r t APWIREPHOTO Riders in the Tour de France climb the Puerto de la Bonaigua pass in Spain duringthe 16th stage Wednesday. Indurain adds to overall lead, now ahead by 4:28 The Associated Press SAINT LARY SOULAN, France Miguel Indurain of Spain increased his lead in the Tour de France on Wednesday just as the Spanish national railway knew he would. . So confident that Indurain will win, the Spanish state-run railroad RENFE announced that two sleeping-car trains will run from Madrid and Barcelona to arrive in the French capital on Sunday for the final stage of the marathon cycling tour. With Indurain adding more Tour de France than a minute to his overall lead, Zenon Jaskula of Poland took advantage of the pacemaking chores of rivals Tony Rominger and Indurain as they pulled away on the final mountain to capture the 16th stage. Jaskula won the Andorra to Saint Lary Soulan leg of 143 miles with a final burst past Rominger and Indurain over the last 400 yards. The trio moved away from the rest of the pack up the final climb of six miles, rising 5,51 1 feet. Rominger led the way with Indurain on his wheel. Driving Into The Future.
