IHt UAV1UWN SUN Sunday, Augiut 33, UM7 Cross country teams preparing for season Srorrhonnl M**t«r Bitters, ............ 0 1 U Sudden impact ............. 0 2 o By ALFRED VALDEZ While all of the hoopla for the upcoming high school football season continues, cross country runners for Ross S. Sterling and Robert E .Lee have been quietly working out in preparation for their first meet on Sept 5. At RSS, Coach Drew Dunlap willf ield a boys team that boasts four returning lettermen. REL Coach Gene Bosse has two runners back from last season. Dunlap said he also has several promising runners working out and expects a good season. On the other hand, REL is lacking in team members as only six runners have come out for practice. Returning for RSS are seniors Paul Gilbreath and Curtis Rene, along with juniors Jon Heintschel and Shawn Elliott. "We've been working but about two weeks," Dunlap said. "We are just getting ready for the first meet on Sept. 5 at Lee." Dunlap said he has some other runners who are showing promise. Seniors Adam Crick; Rob Brown and Bryan Lynell will run as wil sophomore Kevin Schafer. Schafer. "I feel like we are going to be improved this year," Dunlap said. RSS will host a meet Sept. 19, and the District 23-5A event is scheduled for Oct. 31 at Bicentennial Park. In addition, there will be seven other meets that the teams will participate in this season. Bosse hopes he has enough runners to compete in some of those meets. "I had some promises last year," Bosse said. "But 1 guess once the good times of summer came around, they didn't want to come back and suffer." Juniors Jose Ruiz and Eric Twardowski are the lone returnees for KfclL. Bosse said he will also work with Alex Deutsch to round him into long- distance running form. Paul Welch, who ran as a freshman, will be back. Bosse said there are two other freshmen out for the team. That group of six comprises the team at present. However, after classes begin, Bosse expects to recruit more runners. "I should be running about 10 once school starts and we get into the season," he said. REL's early workouts have consisted of lifting weights and running. "We're not in that good of shape," Bosse said. "We've been able to work out only one time a day because of the heat."

The 31-year-old Atlanta Braves outfielder on Friday became the 57th major league player to hit 300 career home runs as the Braves edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4. "1 knew it was there, but it hasn't really been on my mind a lot." Murphy said of the milestone he attained in his 10th full season in the majors. "H did cross my mind because I've been asked about it and I kind of wanted to do it this home stand." Phillies 2-7 Dodgers 1-3 Milt Thompson knocked in the winning run in both games as Philadelphia swept a doubleheader from Los Angeles. He went 7-for-ll in the doubleheader with four hits in the first game and three in the second NATIONAL LEAGUE and has knocked in ihe winning run in each of his last four games, tying a NL record set by Johnny Ray. Cardinals ..'. 2 Reds. l John Tudor and Todd Worrell combined for a six-hitter and Jim Lindeman hit a home run as St. Louis defeated Cincinnati. Tudor, -1-2, pitched G 2 -j innings for the victory, giving up five hits. Worrell went the rest of the way for his 26th save. Lindeman's seventh homer of the season was almost caught by Reds center fielder Eric Davis. Davis got a glove on the ball, but lost both the ball and his glove over the left-center field wall. The Reds said that when Davis' glove was retrieved from behind the .wall, the ball was in the glove. Giants 6 Expos 3 Jeffrey Leonard had a three- run homer and pitcher Dave Dravecky added two hits and scored twice as San Francisco downed Montreal. Dravecky. 7-9. went 5-n innings, allowing 10 hits, Dennis Martinez, 7-2. was the loser. Padres 6 MeLs 2 A two-run homer by John Kruk helped San Diego over New York. Rookie Jimmy Jones. 6-1, won his fifth straight decision, with relief help from Lance McCullers. who gave up both of the Mets runs in the ninth inning before Mark Davis came on to get the final three outs Padres Manager Larry Bowa was ejected from the game in the fifth inning after arguing with home plate umpire Steve Rippley when Ron Darling, 10-8. threw inside to Kruk. Molitor ups streak to 36 with double MILWAUKEE (AP) — In the streakiest of seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers, Paul Molitor has reveled in a 13-game winning streak, suffered through a 12-game losing skid and now is aiming at baseball history with a 36-game hitting streak "Just like the 13-game winning streak, I want to ride it out as long as 1 can and just enjoy it," Molitor said earlier in his streak. "When it ends, it ends." It kept right on going Friday night. Moiitor delivered a leadoff double in the fourth inning of the Brewers' 3-0 victory over Kansas City to extend his streak to 36. H was his only hit in three at- bats Two stints on the disabled list and a sore elbow have forced the 30-year-old Molitor to move from third base to designated hitter and focused his abilities on one area — hitting. And once he became the permanent DH on July 16, Molitor's bat has not been silenced. During the tear he has a .421 batting average (64 of 152) with seven homers. 32 RBI and 39 runs scored. Only three times during the streak has Molitor had to come up with a hit in his last at-bat to keep it going — the most dramatic coming on Aug. 13 in Baltimore when he hit a two-out homer in the ninth inning. "It's a matter of I've been healthy since All-Star break. That's always been a problem I've had. It's just a matter of getting some timely hits, getting a lot of at-bats, and there have been those four or five or six games where I've got that lucky hit as well. It's a combination of things." Molitor said during a news conference Friday. Molitor's streak is the sixth- longest in major league history, lying Ty Cobb. Tommy Holmes of the Boston Braves, who hit in 37 games in 19-45, is next in Molitor's sights. Then comes Cobb again, who also hit in 40 straight in. 1911; George Sisler. who hit in 41 straight in 1922. Pete Rose, who hit in 44 straight in 197B and then Jot DiMaggio with 56 straight in 1941. Molitor said Friday he knew the history of hitting streaks, especially DiMaggio's, long before his began. "I've been aware of it since 1 was a kid. being an avid fan as a youngster. There is no question that was one of the great streaks in the history of sports "It's hard to be a Little League player and not know about Joe DiMaggio's 36-game streak," Tribe shocks Tigers, sweeps twinbill By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Detroit Tigers went into Cleveland on a roll, and figured to clean up against the last-place Indians. Instead, two unlikely pitchers gave Cleveland a clean sweep in a double-header Friday that tightened up the American League East race. Reliever Jamie Easterly won his first game in nearly two years as the Indians trounced the Tigers 12-4 in the opener and stopped Detroit's five-game winning streak. John Farrell. making his first major league start, pitched a s i x - h i 11 e r and Cleveland cruised 8-3 in the second game. Detroit still stayed in first place in the AL East. t\vo percentage points ahead of Toronto and three games in front AMERICAN LEAGUE of New York. The Blue Jays and Yankees also lost. "That takes some of the sting out of the double loss, anyway." said Frank Tanana, who was the loser in the second game. Brewers 3 Royals 0 Len Barker. 2-0, gave up four hits in 6':i innings. Chuck Crim allowed two hits the rest of the way for his fifth save. Paul Molitor doubled in the fourth inning to extend his hitting streak to 36 games. The crowd of 37.141 responded with a two-minute standing ovation. Angels 3 Blue Jays 1 Jerry Reuss. with relief help from Greg Minion, won his first start since coming off the disabled list, leading California over Toronto. Red Sox il Twins 3 Roger Clemens won for the ninth time in 10 decisions and Mike Greenwel! drove in three runs with three hits as Boston sent Minnesota to its fourth straight loss. Clemens. 13-7, gave up one run on six hits in 6 a a innings. He struck out nine. Wes Gardner finished up for his fifth save, the first for the Red Sox staff since June 30. Athletics 6 Yankees 4 Alfredo Griffin hit a two-run homer and Mark McGwire had a two-run double as Oakland scored five times in the third inn- ing and beat New York Mariners 3 Orioles 2 Mike Moore pitched a six- hitter in his team-record fifth straight complete game and Seattle beat visiting Baltimore.

Mike Tomczak will get his second straight preseason start tonight when the Bears take on the Pittsburgh Steelers before a capacity crowd of 66,000 in Soldier Field. Tomczak, who started seven winning games last year, has taken over the No, l spot because Jim McMahon is still recovering from shoulder surgery performed last December and Steve fuller underwent surgery this past week. In other games today, it will be the Washington Redskins against the Green Bay Packers in Madison, Wis.; Cincinnati at Detroit; Houston at New Orleans; Cleveland at the New York Giants; Atlanta at Kansas City; the New York Jets at Tampa Bay; Indianapolis at Minnesota; Seattle at St. Louis; Dallas at San Francisco; and Buffalo at the Los Angeles Raiders. On Sunday, Philadelphia will be at New England and San Diego plays host to the Los Angeles Rams. Miami is at Denver Monday night. In last week's exhibition opener at Miami, which Chicago won 10-3, Tomczak completed nine of 17 passes for 68 yards. Tomczak will play at least one quarter, possibly more, with No. 1 rookie draft choice Jim Harbaugh and Conner Hclsman Trophy winner Doug Flutte both expected to see plenty of act km.
