June"g3,1998 Page 10 Tretheweys warm ' to 22nd Grandma's DULUTH — The weather put a hit on the yxtraneous functions and took/some of the spectators out of the mix. It did nothing to slow down the runners in the 22nd annual Grandma's Marathon at Duluth Saturday, however; Taking in our third consecutive Grandma's as onlookers, we noted the negative impact the damp and coot weather had on the activities down at Canal Park Friday night, Saturday and race day, _ Sun and warm temperatures brought Grandma's followers out in droves the previous two years. But on Friday night, not only were the followers keeping a low profile, but so were the runners. And with heavy fog, off- and-on drizzle and cool breezes dominating the finiah line Saturday, the crowds were much thinner arid so was the applause and up-beat atmosphere. Even the spectators, especially those who didn't dress appropriately Hke the Tretheweys because they felt the warm influence of the sun would be felt long before it actually was, were more concerned with keeping warm. This writer, who should know by now to dress more often with cool temps in mind, wore a T-shirt, shorts and a thin windbreaker. So for the 20 or so minutes we .stood around the chute area waiting for the firmt runner to come in,''I was not,a happy camper. In fact, two cups of coffee could do nothing to warm me up nor could the spritely state of the first arrivals do anything to cheer me up. . '. • • ' • It wasn't until the sun peeked out of the clouds for the first time and the wind began to dwindle that my 60- year-old bones begpn to quiet. It's remarkable how the physical can affect the mental. Without my immediate physical needs to be concerned about, I could finally become 100 percent concerned about the runners. After we left our spot along the chute area and crossed the road back from Canal Park that bridges the crosstown, we began walking east along Su- fi on Tr«thew»y Qlob« Correspondent perior Street, cheering those runners just nearing. four hours and those exceeding. that time. While urging them on with an encouraging' smile and a baldface lie about the sun and warmer temps awaiting them at Canal Park or some such blather, I spotted Hurley's Patti Bertagnoli comfortably trotting at about her usual four hour (4:00.25) pace. Moments later, an acea newcomer, Bessemer's Sherri Nyquist, came by at a 4:07.36 clip, looking trouble free. Much earlier on, wife Carol spotted Ironwood neighbor Louie Jagta come at the 3:14 mark.) The cool, moist weather had Httle,efFect on the runners. The leader, Simon Peter, came bursting home looking fresh and with plenty of gas left in the tank, as did all of the top 10 finishers. The cool temps didn't hurt the horde of stragglers we saw along Superior Street, either, as they didn't have those hotter close to noon-time temps that runners the past two yean had to put up with: A mass of 7,600 runners, eventually spreading out as far as 26 miles of route will allow, forms astonishingly long trail — a line that, at times, appeared to be unending. In fact, at the juncture along Superior Street where we had to say goodbye to the runners as we continued east to my sister-in-law's house, they were •till coming onto Superior Street and heading west in abundant numbers at about the 4:30 mark. Yes, it wasn't the best Grandma's for the revelers, spectators and concessioners, but it was a refreshing break for the participants. And they are the headiiners of this main event. Interleague play reunites World Series foes of '96, '68 By TOM WITHERS ___ AP Sports Writer — If the Braves come back to New York for the World Series, you can bet Greg Maddux will sleep in a different bed. Maddux awoke with a stiff neck Monday morning in his Manhattan hotel. But he pitched six innings before pulling himself, and the Yankees rallied against Dennis Martinez for a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. . Tim Raines hit a two-run double in the seventh inning for the Yankees, who delighted a crowd of 53,316 in the first of four games this week between the the clubs expected by many to play in this year's World Series. "I just slept on it bad last night," Maddux said. "I was aware of it every pitch. It's why I came out. I said, 'Enough's enough."* "Obviously, I wasn't as comfortable as Fd like to be. But that'* not why I gave up the hits and runs. Really, they're- smart hitters. They made nice adjustments." Martinez (2-4) took over for Maddux and wound up losing his 13th straight decision to the Yankees. He fell to 2-19 lifetime against New York, and remained winiess at Yankee Stadium since CARDINA1£ 4.

I like the chanting and the cheering and the boo*," he said. "You just always have places where you have good times and have great times and have bad times." The Yankees struck for three runs in the seventh against three relievers. Raines' two-out double off Martinet, his former teammate in Montreal, put New York ahead 5-4. "I was lucky to get something., but over the plate," Raines said. "I think they tried to pitch me away. I got a pitch to hit." There was nothing at stake in the first of four Yankees-Braves games this week, but that didnt stop Yankee Stadium from rocking like it did during the 1996 World Series when New York beat Atlanta. "We had a great crowd," Yankee* starter Andy Pettitte said. "It was good for the fans, it was good for the game."

A year ago, the seven-time champion was in rehabilitation after reconstructive knee surgery. Two months ago, her comeback threatened by more injuries, she considered retirement. So on Monday, after winnirig her first-round match in straight sets on Centre Court, Graf was overcome by emotion. Twice during a news conference, »he broke down.crying. "I get emotional because I don't take it for granted being here," said the , German, playing her I3th Wimbledon. "It's just special to be here." It was a remarkable display from a player who has rarely expressed her emotions on or off the court. Graf said she was surprised to be on Centre Court, the scene of her greatest triumph*, for the opening match against Spain'* Gala Leon Garcia. "It i* not common to play th* first match on Centre Court un- les* you win the year before, so I didn't take it as normal at alt," she said. "I got really excited, and it definitely pumped me up to b* playing out there." After some initial n«rvw.
