More THE DAILY GLOBE. Ironwood, Ml — Wednesday, Sept. 16.1998 Page 10 AL West leaders begin crucial two-game series By TOM CASTRO Associated Press Writer Anaheim manager Terry Collins is tired of ali the buildup. He's ready to get to it against the Teras Rangers. "We can take all our attention off everything else and put it finally on the one thing that everybody's been waiting to talk about — and that's Texas!" said Collins, whose team plays the Rangers five times in eight days, starting tonight at Arlington. Anaheim's AL West lead over the Rangers is one game. "Every radio show, every writer — - nobody cares about anything but Texas," Collins said. "Well, tomorrow we play them. Bottom line, tomorrow we go head-to- head. There's ho secrets. There's no hidden agendas. We get after it. We don't worry about playoff tickets; we worry about winning baseball games." The Angels, who fell to 5-7 in September with Tuesday night's 8-1 loss to Tampa Bay, haven't had a winning record in the month since 1991^ and are 53-88 in September from 1992 through 1998. "We've got 12 games left, and that's what it's all about," Collins said. "I don't care where we park. I don't care who the ushers are above the dugout. I don't care anything except winning baseball games." Texas comes into the series on a higher note, as Ivan Rodriguez' two-run, ninth-inning homer capped a Rangers rally from a 5-0 deficit for a 6-5 victory over Baltimore on Tuesday night. This is going to give us some momentum going in there tomorrow night," Texas manager Johnny Oates said of the victory. "Now we go home one game down, knowing we're going head-to-head with them in five of the next eight games." The battle between the AL West contenders resumes Mori- day, when the Angels play host to the Rangers for the start of a three-zame series. Despite Anaheim's struggles, the Angela* Tim Salmon is confident the matchup will shake his team up. "Maybe that's something we need to spark some excitement," he said. "There's got to be some energy in that dugout tomorrow. You know there will be." Tampa Bay's Rolando Arrojo (14-12) set a record for wins by an expansion pitcher as the Devil Rays scored six runs off Anaheim's Jeff Juden (1-3). Rodriguez homered off Baltimore's Armando Benitez (5-5), who struck 'out the nine previous batters before allowing an infield single to Will Clark to open the Texas ninth. The Rangers' Tim Crabtree (5-1) got the final out in the eighth for the win. John Wetteland worked the ninth for his 40th save. Indians 7, Blue Jays 5 Manny Ramirez hit three homers for his first 40-homer season and drove in five runs as Cleveland reduced its magic ^number for clinching the AL Central title to two with the win at Jacobs Field. Ramirez homered in consecutive at-bats in the third, fift and seventh, the first two off Dave Stieb (1-2). He didn't bat again. Toronto, which dropped four games behind Boston in the AL wild-card race, lost its second straight after winning 14 of 16. Chad Ogea (5-3) allowed one run in three innings, and Paul Assenmacher got one out for his second save. R«d Sox 9, Yankees 4 Jason Varitek homered twice and drove in a career-high five runs and Tim Wakefield (16-8) took a shutout into .the seventh at Yankee Stadium aa Boston stopped a - three-game losing streak, winning for only the third time in 12 games. The Yankees, who gave rookie pitcher Mike Jerzembeck (0-1) his first major league start in order to give their starters an extra day's rest, dropped to 6-9 in its last 15: New York needs to go 8-5 in its final 13 games to set the AL record for wins in a season with 112. Mariners 12, Twins 7 Ken Griffey Jr. hit his AL-leading 5?nd homer and drove in five runs to become the fourth-youngest player to reach 1,000 RBIs as Seattle won at Minnesota. Griffey, who was 4-for-€, lined a two-run single to center field with the bases loaded in a four- run fourth inning to pass the milestone. Griffey now has 1,004 RBIs in 10 seasons. At 28 years and 10 months, he got to 1,000 faster than anyone except Mel Ott, Jimmie Foxx and Lou Gehrig- Paul Abbott (2-0) allowed four runs on seven hits in five-plus innings. Frank Rodriguez (4r6) lost his fourth straight. Royals 6, Athletics 3 Jeff King and Scott Leius drove in two runs apiece as Kansas City stretched its home winning streak to four for the first time since Sept. 13-17, 1996. Pat Rapp (12-12) gave up five hits in six innings. Jeff Montgomery got three outa for his 34th save. Kenny Rogers (14-8) allowed five runs and six hits in five innings. Tigen 2, White Sox 0 Rookie Seth Greisinger gave up 1 four hits in eight innings in a game that started nearly two hours late because of rain. The Tigers won for just the sixth time in their past 23 home games. Greisinger (6-8) struck out three and walked two in winning for the fifth time in six decisions. . Todd. Jones pitched the ninth for his 26th save. Mike Sirotka (12-15), who has lost his last five decisions, gave up eight .hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in seven innings for the White Sox. Joanna Sorenson, right, won the 1998 Eagle Bluff Golf Club Woman's League tournament Sept. 3. Evelyn Barto was runner-up.

' The group released the survey on Monday, the day before it had to answer a gender equity lawsuit filed by two Grand Rapids mothers on behalf of their teenage daughters. Jay Roberts-Eveiand and Diane Madsen contend the nontraditional seasons harm girls' chance for college recruitment. The association plans to argue it has no control over when its member schools decide to schedule seasons. Furthermore, a survey of its 729 high school members found that 82 percent arc against moving volleyball to fall and girls basketball to winter, as they are in college and in 44 other states. But Ms. Roberts-Evelarid said there was a big difference between popularity and justice. "Equity doesn't care about a survey," she said. "What matters is whether it's fair and legal, not whether coaches and principals like it." Many coaches and athletic directors say they think it would overtax their facilities and the pool of coaches and referees if boys and girls played a given sport at the same time. The issue of who is responsible for the seasons — the schools, the MHSAA or regional conferences — is important, because it determines who is liable if the courts found the seasons violated Title IX, a federal law that says boys and girls must receive equal treatment in educational programs receiving federal funds. John Johnson, MHSAA spokesman, said the association plans to argue that it can't be held responsible because as a private, nonprofit organization, it receives no public funding. Ironwood tops Hurley The Ironwood Red Devil tennis team took another romp through Michigan-Wisconsin Conference tennis action Tuesday, downing Hurley 7-0. Ironwood is 5-0 in conference meets and 6-1 overall. The Midgets fell to 2-4 in the M-W. Ironwood's sweep of the four singles matches started with Jill Cisewski blanking Carrie Mattson 6-0, 6-0. Hurley's Adrienne Leino put up a good fight before falling to Heather Asunto 6-3, 7-5.

(AP) — Lions coach Bobby Ross has decided to start rookie quarterback Charlie Batch in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings and demote veteran Scott Mitchell, a team spokesman said today. After the Lions' 0-2 start on the season, Ross demoted Mitchell to the No. 3 spot, team spokesman Dan Arthur said this'morning. Mitchell is in the second year of a four-year, $21 million contract. The No. 3 quarterback spot had been held by Frank Reich. Batch, 25, the team's second- round draft pick and a former Eastern Michigan University standout, will get his career-first start. Ross made his decision after reviewing tapes of Detroit's 34-28 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Booth Newspapers said today. Brewers move to Huntsville MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers say their Class AA farm team next season wijl be at Huntsville, Ala. The Brewers' AA affiliate has been at El Paso, Texas, since 1981. Cecil Cooper, the major league team's director of player development, naid Tuesday that the Saban headed to Cleveland? DETROIT (AP) — Michigan State coach Nick Saban says he haa no interest in coaching the Cleveland Browns even though Carmen Policy, the president and part owner of the new franchise, said he'd be a candidate. "I'm not concerned about or considering or thinking about or worried about any situation of any kind, anywhere, other than our team and what we're doing," Saban told The Detroit News in a story Tuesday. Brewers had signed a two-year contract with the Huntsville Stars. Huntsville had been affiliated with the Oakland Athletics since 1985.
