Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Saturday, May 20, 1989 BASEBALL Major League standings Cubs win dispute, game against Reds National League East Division 12 Point Park, Slippery Rock advance gled to center to score Perry. Atlanta's Lonnie Smith stretched tissues around his right ankle while chasing a foul pop up and was listed as day-to-day. Tigers 2, Royals O DETROIT - Lou Whitaker hit a two-run, two-out homer in the ninth inning off Bret Saberhagen to give Detroit the win over Kansas City. Saberhagen (3-4) walked Gary Pettis with one out. Chet Lemon flied out and Whitaker hit his 10th home run of the season, just inside the foul pole in right. Rangers 4, Twins 2 ARLINGTON, Texas Ruben Sierra and Julio Franco led off the sixth inning with consecutive homers, lifting Texas past Minnesota. Reliever Kenny Rogers (2-0) got the victory, benefitting from the Rangers' hitting back-to-back homers for the second straight game. Point Park advanced to the NAIA World Series for the fourth straight year yesterday with a 10-1 defeat of Dominican College (Orangeburg, N.Y.) for the Area VIII championship at Pullman Park. The Pioneers (40-3-1), ranked fourth nationally and winners of 22 in a row, will meet host Lewis-Clark State Friday in the first round of the double-elimination 10-team World Series at Lewiston, Idaho. Point Park's best finish in the World Series was third in 1979 and 1986. The winning pitcher yesterday was starter Jeff Burt (6-0), a junior right-hander who allowed one run and one hit In five innings. Paul Rekar pitched three shutout innings, allowing one hit, and Shawn McCreary pitched the ninth. SUU advances Host Slippery Rock (40-15), avenging a loss Monday to Ship-pensburg (26-16) in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championship, defeated the Red Raiders, 12-11 and 8-3, to gain its first-ever berth in the eight-team NCAA Division II World Series May 27-June 2 at Montgomery, Ala. Kirk Scurpa, who won the second game to set a school record with his ninth win of the season, allowed just two hits after the fourth inning. Kevin Keryan's eighth-inning homer in the first game broke a 9-9 tie and put the llth-ranked Rockets ahead for good.

Vance Law had a two-run double in the disputed rally against Danny Jackson (2-7) and later drove in another run with a single. Cincinnati led, 2-0, going into the fourth. Sandberg singled and Lloyd McClendon walked. Berryhill hit a grounder toward third with the runners going. Third baseman Chris Sabo, moving to cover the bag, dove back to his left and missed the grounder, which then hit Sandberg on the leg several feet behind Sabo. Umpire Bob Engel immediately called Sandberg out, drawing a protracted and heated argument from Zimmer, who was ejected. But his argument succeeded: Because the ball bad passed a fielder, Sandberg was allowed to stay at third and Berryhill was given an infield hit. Mets 3, Giants 2 NEW YORK - Darryl Strawberry's walk off Rich Gossage with the bases loaded and two outs in the 10th inning gave New York the victory over San Francisco. With two outs in the 10th, Craig Lefferts (1-2) walked Len Dykstra and pinch-hitter Tim Teufel. Gossage then relieved and walked Howard Johnson to load the bases. Strawberry drew four consecutive balls to force in the winning run. Padres 8, Phillies 2 PHILADELPHIA - Benito Santiago Blue Jays 9, White Sox 3 CHICAGO Tony Fernandez broke out of a l-for-17 slump with a go-ahead three-run homer as Toronto won for the third time in four games under interim Manager Cito Gaston, beating Chicago. Fernandez hit his second home run of the season with Toronto trailing, 2-1, in the fifth. Toronto made it 7-1 in the sixth when Ernie Whitt hit a two-run single and Nelson Liriano hit a sacrifice fly off Scott Rosenberg. had the first first four-hit game of his career and drove in three runs as San Diego won its fourth straight, over Philadelphia. Ed Whitson (6-2) won his fourth consecutive decision. Dodgers 8, Expos 0 MONTREAL - Tim Belcher pitched a three-hitter for his league-leading third shutout and Jeff Hamilton hit his first career grand slam as Los Angeles beat Montreal. Belcher (3-4) pitched his third complete game. He had lost his previous three starts as the Dodgers scored just five runs for him. Montreal lost its fourth straight. Indians 4, Orioles 1 BALTIMORE - Brook Jacoby hit a pair of two-run homers to back the seven-hit pitching of Tom Candiotti and Doug Jones in leading Cleveland over Baltimore. Dave Clark singled with one out in the second inning before Jacoby hit a fly ball that fell into the first row of the left-field bleachers for his fifth homer. In the seventh, Clark drew a leadoff walk off Jose Bautista (2-4). Jacoby hit the next pitch into the left field bullpen. Draves 3, Cardinals 2 ATLANTA Andres Thomas singled home Gerald Perry with two out in the ninth inning to lift Atlanta over St. Louis, snapping the Braves' three-game losing streak. With two out in the ninth, Perry singled off reliever Dan Quisenberry (1-1) and stole second. After Dale Murphy was intentionally walked, Thomas sin Angels 3, Brewers 1 ANAHEIM, Calif. - Bill Krueger's wild pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh inning allowed Lance Parrish to score the go-ahead run as California beat Milwaukee. Chuck Finley (6-2) pitched a seven-hitter for his third complete game, striking out seven and walking one.

Kramer seemed to take the move in stride. "Jim said it's easier to find a starter than a closer," Kramer said after his meeting with Ivland. "So 'Fish' will start. Today's pitching formrecords as starters FROM PAGE 11 Scott had a perfect game into the seventh inning before he walked Rafael Belliard on a full-count pitch with one out. Belliard stole second, but Andy Van Slyke popped weakly to third base, and Bobby Bonilla struck out. Through seven innings, no Astro had been required to make anything beyond an ordinary play to preserve the no-hit bid. "I really had good command early," Scott said. "That usually makes a difference because it usually takes me a while to get command of the split-finger fastball ." However, in the eighth, Wilson bounced a fastball past Scott and into center field for the no-hit ender. "He was pretty awesome," Bonilla said of Scott, who struck out six in beating the Pirates for the sixth time in his Fisher will replace Kramer in the starting rotation, although because the Pirates have Monday off, Fisher won't make his first start until they return home next weekend. "Kramer was throwing 93, 94 miles an hour in the seventh and eighth inning the other night, and he has a great curve ball," Leyland said. "I don't know if he can do it be a stopper , but if we can't trade for a stopper, we'll make one of last seven decisions. "I haven't faced him that much, but right there is probably the best I've seen him throw." Scott's dominance prevented the Pirates from employing their latest bullpen tactic. Before the game, Leyland decided that Randy Kramer, who pitched a one-hitter himself against Cincinnati Tuesday night, would move into the bullpen and join Jeff Robinson as the Pirates' stoppers. Brian and I'm going to the bullpen to come into games in- the late innings and throw hard, aggressive stuff and strike people out." Without Gott.

FROM PAGE 11 "We've worked hard in the last year and a half to build something pretty special. I don't want to see anything end because I'm not there or because we're not playing as well as we can. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll come back better and stronger than ever. But there is a stop-gap that needs to be filled until I do get back. And I don't think we have to go out and get somebody to fill that void. "I think Jeff Robinson should close the games, and everybody in the world should be helping us get to, him." Just about everybody has. Dorn Taylor was here and gone. Scott Medvin was brought up and sent back to Buffalo. Morris Madden made the same trip. Bill Landrum was here and gone and here again. Logan Easley was with Buffalo and is here. And General Manager Larry Doughty is in his office in Three Rivers Stadium, mulling a list of 22 relief pitchers 17 in the major leagues and five others who have been in the majors and trying to figure a way to acquire even one of them. "To be realistic," Doughty said yesterday, "two-thirds of the names on the list you don't have a chance of getting just because of the names. But if you're going to make a list, you might as well make the best list you can." That list includes relievers such as Steve Bedrosian, Dennis Eckersley, Todd Worrell, John Franco, Tim Burke, Ken Dayley. And so on. "People don't want to trade pitchers like that," Doughty said. "If any other club loses a pitcher like Gott, that's quite a hole to fill. You've got one Jim Gott. I've tried to look for pitchers who throw hard and throw strikes. There aren't any 'no-names' on the list. They're all established pitchers. But the chances of getting someone are very slim. I'm investigating, but I don't think there's a real possibility. There aren't that many Worrells, Bedrosians and Francos out there pitchers who are of Gott's caliber." It seems, then, that the Pirates must try to get by with what they have. Or what they might have. Doughty said left-handers Roger Samuels, acquired from San Francisco for Ken Oberkfell, and Bill Wilkinson, obtained from Seattle in the Rey Quinones-Mike Dunne deal, have pitched well for Buffalo. all curveballs or changeups. Then Landrum walked Bo Diaz on four pitches to force in the winning run. That was Landrum's seventh unintentional walk in 8 innings for the Pirates. During his stay with Buffalo, Landrum walked six batters in 25 innings. Why the difference? "A lot of factors enter in," Doughty said. "One, relaxation. There's a comfort level in Triple A that he hasn't developed in the major leagues because he doesn't have as much experience. Two, Triple A hitters are going to swing at more pitches. The thing is, a pitcher's stuff doesn't change. If he throws 91 miles an hour at Buffalo, he's going to throw 91 here. His curveball will be the same. "Most of it seems to be mental. The big difference between the major leagues and Triple A is the ability to adjust. Some people take longer to adjust." Gott thinks the absence of catcher Mike LaValliere out until at least the All-Star break because of knee surgery has also been a factor in the bullpen woes. "Saying nothing against Junior Ortiz and Tom Prince," Gott said, "but Spanky's ability behind the plate is missed. When the fingers go down, Mike's got a talent to know what pitch to throw. It's unbelievable. And I think it's more apparent late in the games because each out is so significant." What's been so significant so far is the outs the bullpen hasn't gotten. Consider. If the Pirates had won half of those 14 games in which they were ahead or close in the late innings, they'd be in first place in the National League East. Instead, after last night's game, they stayed mired in last place, trailing the New York Mets by seven games. "The only encouraging thing so far," Doughty said, "is that we haven't played a quarter of the season and we're only six games out. And we've played a good three-quarters of what we've played with just the bare necessities. We have three-quarters of the season left to make up six games." That will be achievable only if the bullpen begins finding the right pitch. Otherwise, the rest of the season will sound like a dirge. Sat. Sun. fvlon, Tue. Wed. Thur.

"And if we did bring them here, it wouldn't be in a stopper role." That means Robinson and Landrum will fill that role. "I think it comes to a point where the burden goes to the players to come forward and do the job," Doughty said. "Landrum's stuff is good enough to do that, but his approach hasn't been good. The other day Wednesday, he didn't live with his best pitch." Landrum, who has an above-average fastball, walked Cincinnati's Rolando Roomes on five pitches lEACyi LEADZRS Baaed on 112 at-bate.

LOB Pi From wire dispatches CINCINNATI - Lawyers for Pete Rose yesterday asked for a 30-day postponement of Thursday's hearing before commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti, who is investigating gambling allegations against the Cincinnati Reds manager. Giamatti will give his answer Monday. Rose declined comment before the Reds game against the Chicago Cubs. Reuven J. Katz, one of his lawyers, said the postponement was asked "for purposes to prepare." "It's obvious that originally we got a report and seven volumes," he said of the evidence against Rose. "And when we requested additional information, we got 60 additional transcripts and interviews. This is a serious matter and we need to do a thorough job. The request is reasonable and we expect it will be approved. If not, we'll decide where we go from there." DETROIT Detroit Tigers Manager Sparky Anderson has been sent to his California home for treatment of "exhaustion," the team said yesterday. Dr. Clarence Livingood, Anderson's physician and team doctor, said he recommended "complete rest because of physical exhaustion." It was not known how long Anderson would be away from the club and a team spokesman said his status would be re- "We're not going to panic," said General Manager Frank Cashen. "We have a lot of quality players in our system and on the major-league level. Now we'll get a chance to see them play. We'll see what we've really got." Hernandez is 35, so the Mets might use his injury as an opportunity to trade for a first baseman. PHOENIX Arizona is accelerating its efforts to lure more Japanese baseball teams to train in the state. Arizona Gov. Rose Mofford appointed a 15-member task force Thursday to develop a strategy this year for attracting Japanese baseball teams to spring training camps in Arizona. The Yakult Swallows this year completed their 12th year of training in Yuma, while the Tokyo Giants are a regular member of the fall instructional league held in the Phoenix area by several major-league teams. Yuma officials estimate the Swallows' camp pumps nearly $1 million into the economy and the Giants are spending about $300,000 on improvements at Mesa Community College.

Coach Dick Tracewski will serve as interim manager during Anderson's absence, General Manager Bill Lajoie said. Anderson is in his 11th season with Detroit.

NEW YORK First baseman Keith Hernandez said yesterday his broken right kneecap will probably keep him out of the New York Mets' lineup for more than two months. The team announced this week that he would be out for about eight weeks and placed him on the 21-day disabled list. Hernandez was injured Wednesday night in a collision at second base with Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Dave Anderson. "I'm not going to be playing for two months and probably more," Hernandez said. "It's the leg that I pulled my hamstring last year, so it will atrophy to a degree. I would say right now we're looking at August at the earliest." Even with Hernandez and catcher Gary Carter sidelined, the Mets aren't ready to make a trade list yet.
