By The Associated Press CHICAGO Greg Maddux won for the first time in six starts since the All-Star break but left in the sixth inning when he was hit in the arm by a line drive yesterday, and the Chicago Cubs went on to beat the New York Mets, 6-5. With the Cubs' returning to day baseball after playing the first night game in Wrigley Field's history Tuesday, Maddux was hit near his right elbow by a line drive off the bat of Kevin McReynolds with two outs in the sixth. Maddux was was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for X-rays. Maddux (16-6) allowed six hits, struck out one and walked one in winning for the first time since July 10. He also doubled in a run during the Cubs' five-run fourth. Jeff Pico replaced Maddux and allowed a run and three hits in three innings before Frank DiPino got pinch-hitter Keith Hernandez to line out for DiPino's fifth save. Rafael Palmeiro singled in the eighth to extend his hitting streak to 19 games and Andre Dawson had three hits for the Cubs. Ron Darling (12-8) allowed six hits and six runs in four innings. He threw a bases-loaded wild pitch in the first to score Chicago's first run and then allowed the five-run fourth when Vance Law doubled home two runs, Maddux doubled in another and Mitch Webster hit a two-run homer, his third. New York came back with four runs in the fifth and pulled to within a run in the eighth on an RBI single by McReynolds. Athletics 2, White Sox 1 OAKLAND, Calif. - Carney Lans-ford's one-out single in the 10th inning scored Mike Gallego from second base and gave the Athletics a three-game sweep of the White Sox. Greg Cadaret (4-1) pitched one inning of perfect relief, combining with Curt Young and Gene Nelson on a five-hitter as Oakland won for the 10th time in 12 games. Ricky Horton (6-10) relieved starter Jack McDowell to start the 10th. Mc- Associated Press Ernie Whitt of the Blue Jays shoves Yankees second baseman Randy Velarde trying to get to second base in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's 6-3 Toronto victory. Velarde failed to tag Whitt, but threw to first to nail the batter. Whitt was awarded second on interference. National League Wednesday's results Piratea at Montreal. New York at Chicago.

Manrique followed with a run-scoring single up the middle. Young, coming off a three-week layoff to rest a tired arm, allowed four hits in six innings. In his last two starts before being taken off the roster, the left-hander gave up a total of 14 earned runs in 4 innings. Sutton released CINCINNATI - The Los Angeles Dodgers released 300-game winner Don Sutton, the winningest active pitcher in the major leagues and 12th on the all-time list. Dowell allowed five hits in nine-plus innings. Gallego, pinch hitting for Walt Weiss, walked to open the 10th and took second on Luis Polonia's bunt. Lansford, who entered the game in the seventh as a pinch hitter, then grounded his game-winning single to the right of shortstop Ozzie Guillen and into left field. Oakland went ahead 1-0 in the second. Ron Hassey led off with a single, went to second on McDowell's wild pitch and scored on Dave Henderson's double. Chicago tied the score 1-1 in the sixth following a costly balk by Curt Young. With one out, Dave Gallagher got an infield single. The next batter, Fred Sutton, 43, failed to complete any of his 16 starts this season. He was 3-6 with a 3.92 ERA. He was on the disabled list with a sprained elbow from June 29 until Tuesday, when he was activated and started against the Cincinnati Reds. He took the loss in a 6-0 shutout, giving up seven hits and six runs in seven innings. Sutton has a lifetime 324-256 record with Los Angeles, Houston, Milwaukee, Oakland and California. He is one of 19 pitchers in major-league history to win 300 games. The right-hander leaves Los Angeles as the Dodgers' all-time leader in eight categories, including wins (233), losses (181) and strikeouts (2,696).

"I was just hoping it wasn't going to last any longer." It didn't. The game ended "routinely" with second baseman Jose Lind making a leaping catch of Wallach's line drive in almost medium-depth right field. The game went along fairly smoothly until the bottom of the seventh inning. Brian Fisher, who was fined by his pitching staff partners for "hogging" runs, held a 7-2 lead and had two out and nobody on. But two relievers and 25 minutes later, it was 7-5. The Pirates took what should have been a comfortable, 10-5 lead with three runs in the eighth and they were beauties. With two out and nobody on, Lind walked. Andy Van Slyke singled him to second base. With a 2-2 count on Bonilla, Joe Hesketh threw a pitch so wild that Lind scored from second and Van Slyke moved to third. Bonilla hit a hard bouncer to shortstop Rex Hudler, who had all the time in the world but made a horrible throw to first base for a run-scoring error. Then Sid Bream hit a pop fly down the left-field line that Tim Raines, after a long run, couldn't hold while making an attempt at a diving catch. The ball went for a double, scoring Bonilla and giving Bream four RBI for the game. This season, Bream has 14 RBI against Montreal in 12 games. That 10-5 lead became 10-6 in the bottom of the eighth when Jeff Robinson allowed a run on Brooks' single, Wallach's double and Tom Foley's sacrifice fly. Then with one out in the ninth, pinch-hitter Wallace Johnson doubled his 16th pinch-hit in 48 at-bats this season and scored on Raines' double. That finished Robinson. Gott got Andres Galarraga on a bouncer to Bonilla, but Brooks singled, moving Raines to third. Then there was the balk, making it 10-8, and Lind's game-ending catch. Fittingly, this one ended with a circus catch. NOTES - Pirates pitcher John Smiley has been fined $300 by the National League for his part in the melee with the Expos last Wednesday night. Smiley hit Brooks with a pitch, and Brooks charged the mound. Brooks also was fined $300 . . . Right fielder Glenn Wilson, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to repair torn cartilage last Saturday, already is walking with barely a limp and is hopeful he'll be able to come off the Pirates' disabled list Aug. 20. Agricultural report: Buffalo beat Iowa, 3-2, Monday. Larry Melton, making his first appearance in Class AAA, went seven innings, allowing five hits and no walks and striking out seven. Scott Medvin earned his 10th save. Harrisburg lost to Reading, 5-2. Shortstop Tommy Shields had two hits and an RBI. Salem beat Virginia, 9-1. Peter Murphy (7-6) pitched a six-hitter. Aliquippa's Ed Yaco- Montreal pitching 'P Dopson L.3-7 4 2-3 By Paul Meyer Post-Gazette Sports Writer MONTREAL - Ray Miller took one look at John Cangelosi and Al Pedrique sitting in the Pirates' clubhouse yesterday afternoon and smiled. "Two backs that aren't broken," the pitching coach said. "We've got two guys who are fresh. We're ready to go." Miller's reference was to New York's Darryl Strawberry saying last Sunday, after the Mets had won three straight, that the Mets had broken the Pirates' backs. Obviously, the Pirates' backs aren't broken. Yesterday, however, they did have trouble with stomachs. Andy Van Slyke and Mike LaValliere have stomach viruses, which kept them out of the starting lineup. Cangelosi started in center field, Tom Prince started at catcher and Pedrique started at shortstop in place of fatigued Rafael Belliard. Cangelosi and Pedrique take the roster spots held by Tommy Gregg and Denny Gonzalez, respectively. The latter two were sent to the Buffalo farm team. This is Pedrique's third stint with the Pirates this season. He began the season as the regular shortstop but was sent to Buffalo May 8 after struggling offensively. He was recalled May 20 when Belliard went on the DL, then was sent back to the Bisons June 3 when Belliard was activated. Pedrique batted .307 with a home run and 22 RBI in 61 games for Buffalo. "I was hitting the ball well," Pedrique said.'l was relaxed, not trying to do too much, playing every day and having fun. I figured something was going to happen if I just did my job." Pedrique was brought back because Belliard, through Tuesday night, had started all but . two games since June 19. The Pirates feel he needs rest, and they feel more comfortable with Pedrique at shortstop for an entire game than Gonzalez. "Gonzalez did a good job," Manager Jim Leyland said, "but Pedrique is a shortstop by trade." Cangelosi, who batted .331 in 37 Bisons games, was sent down July 5 after hitting .148 in the first three months this season. "We aren't going to have much experience on our bench no matter which way we go," Leyland said, "but this way we have more." Cangelosi got off to a good start with Buffalo after being sent down in July. "And I wondered, 'How come they're not calling me back?'" he said. "The guys the Pirates were winning, and I felt like part of the team. I wanted to get called back before September so I'd be eligible for the playoffs if we make it." "I was not frustrated, but I missed being with the guys I felt I belonged here." r bb ao 3 4 3 0 0 1 2 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 Heaton McGffgan Hesketh 11-3 1 0 1 3 2 1 2 3 1 1 0 Ti.
