It took 22 home games last season; Monday will be their 18th at the SkyDome. If that wasn't enough, Toronto averaging more than 47,000 a game is 7,000 spectators ahead of its pace in 1991, when it became the first major-league team to draw more than four million. ONCE AROUND: Do not look for Detroit to bring back Kirk Gibson. His agent Doug Baldwin and Tigers GM Jerry Walker were both in Seattle last weekend for the Tigers-Mariners series and did not talk to each other for three days Jom Canseco, after Canadian officials detained him two hours while looking into his 1989 handgun arrest: "Weird things keep happening to me." . . . Houston has set a club record by winning its first six extra-inning games. The Astros had won six straight in 1983 and 1989, but both those streaks came during the middle of the year With Bert Blyleven back with the Angels, there are six Netherlands-born players in professional organizations. Michael Crouwel (Phillies), Robert Eenhoorn (Yankees), Rlkkert Faneyte (Giants), Frans Groot (Dodgers) and Cap Van Rynbach (Mets) are the others Boston second baseman Jody Reed was not too unhappy when his career-high 14-game hitting streak came to a halt. "It's no big deal. I wasn't going to catch Joe DIMagglo," he said tion. NEVER SAY UNCLE: It was a family affair when the Mets and Padres got together this week in New York. Dwight Gooden and nephew Gary Sheffield played against each other for the first time' in organized ball. Don't tell Faye Vincent, but there was a bet be- . tween them a dinner for whoever had the best day. New York won the Tuesday game 7-3; Sheffield had a single in three at-bats. Naturally, both sides claimed victory. "I won the game, didn't I? He should be buying me dinner." Uncle Doc said. "What do you mean? I won," countered Sheffield. "He didn't strike me out and he didn't break my bat." It's a good thing neither was depending on Padres manager Greg Riddoch to treat. Someone broke into his hotel room while Riddoch was asleep and stole $600 cash. "The scary thing is I actully heard the sound of coins jingling," Riddoch said. "I thought I was dreaming. I guess I wasn't." PEOPLE ARE COMING: The recession has hit Canada as hard as the United States. But you wouldn't know that by the high-flying Toronto Blue Jays. Today or Monday, the Jays will surpass one million in attendence, breaking the major-league record they set last year for reaching that Nolo contendere. In legal terms it means "no contest." In baseball terms it means a Seattle Mariners game. This was a team that was expected to (and still could) create havoc in the AL West. But since sporting a 10-9 record on April 25, the Mariners have collapsed into a 4-13 abyss. Rookie left-hander Dave Fleming had three of the wins. "This is the worst ever," grumbled Ken Griffey Jr. "There are guys on this team already accepting losing," charged Randy Johnson, who is 3-4 after a 3-0 start. If pitching is the name of the game, the Mariners staff should remain anonymous. In their first 33 games last year, Seattle scored 131 runs, gave up 133, and was 19-14. Through 35 games this year the Mariners had scored 138 runs and given up 200. At 14-22, with a major league-worst team ERA of 5.58, the sixth-place Mariners are barely ahead of woeful Kansas City. The Seattle pitchers still may be introducing themselves to each other. Eight pitchers with the Mariners on opening day 1991 Bill Swift, Bill Krueger, Mike Jackson, Dave Burba, Rob Murphy, Scott Bankhead, Gene Harris and Rich DeLucia are no longer with the team. DeLucia is in the minors; the others are with other teams. Another starter, Brian Hol-man, is still on the disabled list.

The Oakland star's total of 16 home runs was more than the Dodgers, White Sox, Brewers and Red Sox entering play this weekend. VEILED TREAT: Amid the aromas emanating from Lake Erie, love is in the air. Cleveland left-hander Kevin Wick-ander was racing the clock this weekend, trying to finish all the necessary details like blood tests and a license to marry fiance Kim Pennington on Monday in a pregame ceremony. "I love baseball. The mound is my home," said Wickander, 27, when asked why he wants to re-enact a scene out of the movie "Bull Durham." "I'm on the mound more than I am at my home in Phoenix." Oh, if Wickander and Pennington are unable to pull off the Monday nuptials, they will go to Las Vegas on May 28.

At the All-Star game in Toronto last year, Frank Viola was the happiest of souls. The former Twin was back home in New York with the Mets; he was going to be a free agent at the season's end, and with a 10-5 record and 2.83 ERA, he seemed on the way to a contract to rival Doc Gooden's. What could go wrong? Start with a hangnail on the middle finger of his pitching hand that became infected in August and was soon so painful that Viola could not properly grip the ball. "Every time I threw the ball there was blood on it," Viola said. His selection of pitches was reduced to a fastball slow enough for the hitters to count the seams before clouting it. Tie Viola's 3-10, 5.53 post-All-Star performance with the rest of the Mets' pitiful second half, and Viola was run over by the gravy train instead of riding it. He led the National League in hits allowed (259) and highest average against (.286). His seven-game losing streak was the longest by a Mets starter since Ed Lynch in 1984. "I had such a big ego about never missing a start in the big leagues that I wasn't going to this 'little' injury affect me," said Viola. "But when I couldn't throw the ball hard enough to get anybody out I lost confidence. I was getting hit all over the park and I wasn't used to that." The poor second half, plus the discovery of bone chips in his left elbow and a tumor (since removed) on his left ring finger, scared away the Mets, who let the 32-year-old Viola come to the Boston, desperate for someone to complement Roger Clemens in its rotation, gave the 1988 Cy Young Award winner a three-year, $13.9-million deal. He has responded with a 5-2, 2.60 start in 1992 tied with Clemens in wins and second to him in ERA on the Red Sox and has a renewed sense of worth. "The money we make is phenomenal, but the reason we play the game is to be the best at what we do," he said. "I left last year (at 13-15) being one of the worst pitchers in baseball. I didn't like that; I had the whole winter to think about it, and have my two fingers (rehabilitated). "Once Boston came in and said, 'We want you, this is what we'll give you, go out and do your job like you do,' that gave me the confidence I needed to push me along." A native of East Meadows on Long Island, Viola also has torn away the remaining pangs of having to leave New York. But it wasn't easy. "Looking back, I don't think (the Mets) had any intention of resigning me to begin with," he said. "They might have made a stronger effort in spring training last year, but once they doled out all that money to Doc (Gooden) and saw what happened to his shoulder, all of a sudden (it was), 'Frank has some bone spurs and what if that falls apart in a year or two and we pay him all that money?' "They wanted to wait and see. Ultimately they decided to go another way and take me out of the picture. That's something I can live with; that's part of the game. The frustrating part was leaving as I did with my hometown team struggling the last eight weeks of the season."
