The Pirates had another great opportunity in the seventh inning when Montreal led, 3-0. LaValliere and Bell opened with singles. But John Cange-losi, with one hit in his last 16 pinch-hitting at-bats, bounced into a double play. The Pirates did score when Spike Owen fumbled Bonds' bouncer near second, but after Bonds stole second, Lind looked at a third strike from Perez. In the eighth, Reynolds singled with two outs, but with King up, Reynolds was thrown out stealing for only the second time in 17 tries this season. "People say, 'What are you doing stealing there?'" Ley-land said. "But we haven't hit home runs all year. We're going to be aggressive. Maybe we can slip in a run there and get another in the ninth. We've been waiting for home runs all year, and we haven't gotten them." The Expos got a much-needed home run in the seventh Inning from Owen, that coming with Tim Wallach on second base and one out. Owen, who fouled off four pitches, lifted a 2-and-2 pitch from Rick Reed over the right-field wall. That ballooned the Expos' lead from 1-0 to 3-0 and detracted only slightly from Reed's effort. "He pitched outstanding," Leyland said of the righthander who has, at least for . now, taken Randy Kramer's spot in the rotation. "I like what I see." Of Reed and the Expos. "They're playing like a first-place club," Leyland said. "They're not ripping the cover off the ball now, but they're pitching well and playing good defense. If their pitching holds up and they get rolling with the NOTEBOOK Rose case decision will be appealed By The Associated Press Pete Rose's lawyers said yesterday they will appeal the decision to keep Rose's suit against baseball Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti in federal court. The lawyers want the case returned to Hamilton County Common Pleas Court in Cincinnati, Rose's hometown, where Judge Norbert Nadel issued a temporary restraining order June 25 preventing Giamatti from conducting a hearing on gambling allegations involving Rose. The case was transferred to federal court on July 5 at the request of baseball's lawyers. On Monday, U.S. District Judge John Holschuh of Columbus denied Rose's motion to return the case to the state court system. Rose's lawyers said they would appeal Holschuh's order next week in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. Mookie and Maz are ex-Mets hoping to make a difference for a new team in a new league. With the New York Mets this season Mookie Wilson and Lee Mazzilli were platooned, forgotten and, in Mazzilli's case, released. Welcome to Toronto. A change of location has the former and current teammates surging ahead, with the aim of helping the Blue Jays chase down Baltimore in the AL East. The two combined for five hits, three RBI and three runs Wednesday in Toronto's 8-0 victory over Kansas City, leaving the Blue Jays just 2V4 games behind the Orioles. Mazzilli, hours after arriving in Toronto, had a solo homer, two singles and two walks in five at bats. Wilson, not wanting to be left out, had two hits and a run scored.

White Sox 6, Athletics 4 OAKLAND, Calif. - Ron Karkovice's first career triple broke a sixth-inning tie and Chicago ended Oakland's four-game winning streak. Dan Pasqua led off the sixth with a walk off Bob Welch (11-6) and scored on Karkovice's two-out triple off the wall in right-center. The White Sox added an insurance run in the seventh when Calderon singled, stole second and raced home as Greg Walker beat out an infield hit, knocking the ball out of catcher Terry Steinbach's glove for an error. Oakland made up a 4-2 deficit in the fifth inning when Rickey Henderson led off with a walk against starter Richard Dotson, stole his 50th base of the season and scored on Jose Canseco's double. Henderson became the first American League player to steal 50 bases in nine different seasons. By The Associated Press ST. LOUIS - Tom Pagnozzi's run-scoring single broke a sixth-inning tie and Milt Thompson matched his career high with four RBI as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the New York Mets, 6-5, yesterday. Pagnozzi, a reserve catcher hitting just .167 in 66 at-bats this season, lined a two-out, run-scoring single in the sixth inning off reliever Jeff Musselman (0-1). Pedro Guerrero started the inning with an infield hit and advanced on a passed ball before Pagnozzi sihgled to left, driving in only his third run of the season. The loss was the first in the National League for Musselman, who was making his debut with the Mets after being ac-quired on Monday from Toronto. Thompson hit a three-run home run, his third, in the third inning and had a run-scoring groundout to help the Cardinals rebound from a 4-1 deficit. St. Louis also got a solo home run in the second from Terry Pendleton, his seventh. Dan Quisenberry (3-1) got the last out in the sixth to get the victory. John Costello bSSBSSSBSfSSSM pitched 2 innings, allowing only Juan Samuel's two-out double in the ninth. Ken Dayley intentionally walked Howard Johnson before getting Darryl Strawberry to pop out to second baseman Jose Oquendo for his eighth save. Oquendo caught the ball despite colliding with right fielder John Morris. Kevin Elster hit a three-run home run, his fifth, to cap a four-run second for New York off St. Louis starter Ken Hill, who was charged with all five New York runs. The Mets' eighth-place hitter has 11 RBI in his last nine games and is hitting .392 (20 for 51) in his last 16 games. Dave Magadan also drove in a run in the inning with a sacrifice fly. After falling behind, 5-4, the Mets tied the score in the sixth on rookie Keith Miller's RBI single. Mets starter David Cone gave up five hits and five runs in five innings.

Pirates calendar Home his straight-ahead hustle, turning a sure first-inning single into a sparkling, fist-pumping double. Upon joining the Blue Jays, Wilson and Mazzilli become the latest castof fs from a team that won the NL East last season. Last month, the Mets released Mazzilli, whose role had been reduced to pinch-hitting and spot duty. He went 11-for-60 (.183) for New York this season. Wilson, unhappy with part-time status, had often asked for a trade to a team he could play for every day. With an injury to starter Junior Felix, Wilson has that chance with Toronto. With just two months left in the season, the American League West .is poised to reverse a 12-year-old trend. On its current pace, the East will win fewer games than the West for the first time since 1977. Last year, the East won 568 games to the West's 563, and that was the closest the two divisions had been since '77. Going into yesterday's games, the East had won 351 games to the West's 392. "A few years ago, there was no comparison between the East and West," Joe Carter of Cleveland said. "Now, you see the rise of the AL West. I wouldn't say the East has gotten worse, but the West has caught up. There is parity now." Only one West team, the Chicago White Sox, has a losing record against the East, 26-33.

Not as Hank Aaron says nobody loves it any more. I really do love it. I play it because I couldn't be a brain surgeon. Maybe I would have loved being a brain surgeon, too. But I didn't get my high school diploma." Actually, Blyleven went to high school in Garden Grove,-Calif., near Anaheim Stadium. Last season obviously rankles him. Asked if he thought he should be considered for AL Comeback Player of the Year, Blyleven the wrong place." California Managaer Doug Rader said he doesn't know where the Angels would be without Blyleven. He has the best record and the best ERA among the Angels starters. In his 22 starts, California is 16-6. "The bottom line is he can do remarkable things for a ball-club," Rader said. "He could very easily have 15 or 16 wins without even stretching it. Whatever Bert Blyleven gets, he's going to earn and he's going to deserve it. I don't think godsend is too strong a word for him." PIRATES DATA California FROM PAGE 15 Blyleven halted a three-game Angels losing skid. He says he enjoys the pressure of pitching in big games. He ended a five-game California losing streak when he beat Toronto, 1-0, in the Sky Dome July 18. The man who was born in Zeist, Holland, has pitched for Texas, Cleveland and the Pirates in addition to two stints in Minnesota. His a big-league career began in 1970, the season he was the AL Rookie Pitcher of the Year for the Twins. , "I look at baseball as some CUBS STATS (Excluding yeaterday'a game) Batting Fri. Sat. Sun.
