Bosio, 8-5, who won for the first time since July 28, said he never should have gone that long without a victory: "The last three times out, the team has averaged about five or six runs and those are three Wins I should have had." Bosio allowed only Greg Gagne's first-inning single and a seventh-inning hit by Kent Hrbek. He struck out eight and walked three.

Schmidt hits homer No. 522 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Mike Schmidt continues to climb the all-time home run ladder, but even passing Ted Williams and Willie McCovey doesn't excite him. Schmidt's 522nd homer, Friday night, also was his 483rd as third baseman. It put him ahead of Eddie Matthews as the most prolific home run hitter at that position in National League history. Schmidt seemed more satisfied that the two-run fifth- inning homer, his 27th this season, helped lift the Phillies to an 8-1 victory over San Diego. "These milestones don't have a lot of luster for me now. Someday they will, but not now." said Schmidt, who is 12 homers behind eighth-place Jimmie Foxx on the all-time major league list. HAT1QHAL LEAGUE The 37-year-old Schmidt, who was 3-for-4, shows few signs of his oflen-mention retirement. "Physically and mentally I'll be ready to play another year," Schmidt said. "I'll do my best to get another pay raise. If I don't know if I'm going to play baseball by Nov. 1. then I'll probably retire. I'll miss going out of the game as a winner. I would've liked to have a shot at a fourth MVP." Don Carman. 8-9. scattered nine hits, with Benito Santiago's RBI double in the first the only extra-base hit he allowed, walking one and striking out four in his second complete game. Ed Whitson, 10-9. was the loser. Cubs 6 Reds 5 Ryne Sandberg's loth-inning single with two outs scored Bob Dernier from second and lifted Chicago over Cincinnati as the Reds' lost their seventh straight game. Dernier singled to right and stole second. After a walk to Manny Trillo, Sandberg singled to right off John Franco. 7-5. Lee Smith. 4-7, who walked three in the ninth, including a bases-loaded pass to Bo Diaz, pitched the final two innings. Smith allowed one run, one hit, three walks and struck out three. Cardinals 4 Braves.. 3 Tommy Herr's ninth-inning single with two outs scored Ozzie Smith, whose roll block slide prevented catcher Ozzie Virgi! from holding left-fielder Ken Griffey's throw. St. Louis got its third straight victory. Scott drops another decision for Astros From Page l-B pennant race, but the West Division-leading Giants, and former Pirates' pitchers Rick Reuschel and Don Robinson, aren't. So when he pitches against a National League West contender like the Astros or Reds. Walk knows he has the chance to help two of his closest friends. Minutes after reliever Jim Gott earned his fifth save by closing out the Astros in the ninth. Reuschel called the Pirates' clubhouse to offer his congratulations. Gott said. "In a game like this, it's almost like I'm in the pennant race. too. I'd love an excuse to go to Frisco for the playoffs." Mike Scott, the National League Cy Young Award winner last year, had no excuses as he lost for the sixth lime in his last nine decisions. Scott. 13-10. allowed four runs and 11 hits over eight innings. "1 thought 1 gave us a chance to win the game." said Scott, who pitched a three-hitter the last time he faced the Pirates. "1 thought i Scott i pitched pretty good." said Houston Manager Hal Lanier. "He easily could have won 1-0. We had some chances to get Walk out of the game early but we didn't do it."

MAIN 422-5S47 Learning about water spouts can save lives By ED HOLDER Water spouts are common sights in our Gulf and bay waters during the summer. The sight of one tunneling down from a black cloud can send fear racing through a boater's body like a charge of electricity. Despite the fact water spouts are seen so often, most boaters know little about them. Yet. knowing a few simple things about their behavior and how to avoid them could save those boaters their lives. Just what is a water spout'' Are they really as dangerous to boaters as they appear'.' And what should a boater do to avoid getting caught in one when he spots it? To get some expert answers to these questions. I contacted the weather station at Jefferson County Airport and talked with Bill Patterson, weather service specialist and acting station chief. Patterson explained that a water spout is a tornado over water. "The only difference between a water spout and a tornado is one of them is over water and the other is over land." he said. Water spouts normally form during the mid or late stages of a thunderstorm. It also is normal for them to develop on the trailing edge of the storm, he explained. "'That means if a thunderstorm is moving northeast, you'll usually see the water spout on the southwest quadrant," he said. "If the storm is moving southwest, the spout will usually form in the northeast quadrant." However, while water spouts are a definite threat to boaters on open water, they are not as powerful as the killer tornadoes we think of when we hear the word tornado. "There arc basically two kinds of tornadoes," Patterson said. "One is what we call an inflow tornado, the other is the outflow tornado. What we have here along the coast, over land and water alike, is normally the OUTDOORS outflow tornado It is the smalltir and least dangerous of the two "This is the type tornado that touches down briefly on land and takes off pieces of roofs and blows down a few trees anfl sheds." An inflow tornado is the type that creates the giant kilk-ris which can obliterate sections of cities and era>c small towns from the map The smaller outflow tornado which is typical of water spouts also is normally shortlived U usually lasts about five to 15 minutes "But these smaller tornadoes c a n b e a w e a t h e r m a n' s nightmare. They are virtually impossible to sec on radar And since they are shortlived, by the time we get a report on one and get the message out, the thing disappeared." he said. When these smaller outflow tornados form water spouts, are they dangerous to boaters'.' "Definitely They can capsize a boat in seconds." Patterson said. "Just pick it up and flip it over. They also can fill it with water." And what should a boater do to avoid a water spout when he sees (ton open water? "Watch it closely to determine whether it appears to be moving left or right. If it is. it is not moving in your direction. You're probably OK where you are." he said. "But if the water spout appears to be stationary, not moving left or right, that means il'« either coming straight toward you or going straight away frotn you. "To be on the safe side, you have to assume it's coming toward you. Run to your left or right to get out of its path." Since these outflow tornadoes are usually fairly small ip diameter, a short run of a miht or two will usually put the boater out of Us path.
