A Leyland can do By Paul Meyer Post-Gazette Sports Writer Whitey Herzog, who we saw this weekend, has managed three of the last six National League pennant winners. Davey Johnson, who we'll see tonight, managed the 1986 NL champs. Both receive a ton of attention Herzog because of the St. Louis Cardinals' record in the 1980s; Johnson primarily because he manages the New York Mets. And the manager whose team is in the middle of six important games against Herzog's and Johnson's receives relatively none. Which is OK with Jim Leyland. "They've earned it," the Pirates' manager said of the media attention given Herzog and Johnson. "They've been more successful. We haven't won enough. When you win, you're requested more. I guess it is a compliment, because it means you're getting better. "I want to do whatever is part of my job," Leyland said, "but I don't care if they talk to me or not." Leyland said the last without bitterness. It's just that he'd rather see his coaches and players get recognition. 3,W S&r -..:. t Peter Wu Post-Gazette Andy Van Slyke slides into third with an eighth-inning triple as Cardinals third baseman Jose Oquendo awaits the throw from the outfield. The Pirates scored twice on Van Slyke's hit. Van Slyke's hit beats Cards FROM PAGE 11 out, and Walk went to the ninth needing only three outs for his second complete game. He got the first two, although right fielder Darnell Coles had to go to the wall in the corner to catch Ozzie Smith's drive. Then Willie McGee lined a single to right, stole second and continued to third on catcher Mike LaValliere's throwing error. Tom Brunansky walked, and Leyland went to Gott. Gott threw a strike to Tony Pena, who drilled the next pitch by Bonilla for a single, making it 3-2. But Gott struck out Jose Oquendo to earn only his second save since May 10. Walk was masterful through eight innings, allowing just three hits and no walks. Two of the hits came in the second inning, when Walk was called for two balks by the balk-happy umpiring crew chaired by Doug Harvey. Brunansky had a leadoff single and went to second when first base umpire Frank Pulli called a balk. Pena's bunt sent Brunansky to third, and he scored on Oquendo's single on a 3-and-0 pitch. Tom Pagnozzi flied to right, and before Walk got Luis Alicea to bounce to Lind, Pulli called another balk. After the half-inning, Leyland strolled out to discuss things with Pulli. "I like this crew," Leyland said. "I think it's a real professional crew. I have fun with them. My only problem was that Walk threw over to first six times the same way as the two that were called balks . Frank said he saw something with his Walk's shoulder that was drastically different. If that's what he saw, OK." Walk weathered that inning and had retired 14 straight batters when McGee led off the seventh with a double. No problem. McGee went to third on Brunansky's foul pop to right, and with the infield in, Walk got Pena on a ground ball to Lind. Then he caught Oquendo looking at a third strike. He zipped through the eighth routinely. Walk's 8-4 record is complemented by a 2.38 earned run average, meaning he should merit consideration for the All-Star game. " "He's got to be considered," said Whitey Herzog, the Cardinal manager who will select PIRATES SCOUTING REPORT Pirates vs. Mets: Three games at Shea Stadium, today and tomorrow at 7:35 p.m. and Wednesday at 1:35 p.m. Starting pitchers: John Smiley vs. Bob Oieda; Doug Drabek vs. Ron Darling; Mike Dunne vs. Dwight Gooden. Radio-TV: KDKA (1020) and the Pirates Radio Network. Tonight's and tomorrow's games are on KBL cable. Notes: The series marks the first meeting this season between the clubs . . . The Pirates compiled a 6-12 record against the Mets last year, including a 2-16 record at Shea Stadium the past two seasons . . . Mike Diaz hit .387 (12-for-31) with four home runs and 13 RBI against New York last season. He has hit three career pinch-hit homers against the Mets. All three have been three-run shots . . . The three Mets pitchers who will start in this series have a combined lifetime record of 21-4 against the Pirates (Oieda 7-1, Darling 7-2 and Gooden 7-1). . .New York this season is 15-5 in one-run decisions and 7-1 in extra-inning contests . . . Mets first baseman Keith Hernandez, sidelined with a pulled right hamstring, is eligible to come off the disabled list Wednesday ,J. INSIDE THE PARK "The coaches are one phase of the game that never gets credit," Leyland said, "and the game belongs to the players." So where does Leyland fit in? How does he compare himself with other managers? "When I go into a game, I don't feel inferior to anybody, and I sure don't feel superior to anybody," he said. "If we win, I have nothing to do with it. If we lose, I don't think I'm going to be the reason, either. "When the game's over, I feel comfortable with myself. I feel like I'm OK. The game belongs to the players. Anybody who thinks it doesn't is crazy. Anybody who thinks being a manager is a big deal is out of their mind." e In a recent game between Houston and Los Angeles, Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser upset Nolan Ryan with a wild swing at an 0-and-2 pitch that he barely fouled off. Ryan then decided to see if Hershiser 1 !" J Mets statistics Excluding yesterday's gam Batting AB R H 2b 3b HR RBI Avg.

When he regained his feet and his composure Hershiser asked plate umpire Gerry Davis why he didn't warn Ryan. "Warn him for what?" Davis asked. "That he gave you a heart attack?" e Milwaukee pitcher Bill Wegman, just back from the disabled list (tendinitis in his elbow), had a five-hit shutout working against Seattle last week but was lifted after eight innings. "They had me on a 100-pitch limit, and I already had 98 after the eighth," Wegman said. "I told them maybe I could get three outs with two pitches." e Pirates pitching coach Ray Miller on Bobby Bonilla: "If he has a big day, he's thankful he's in the big leagues. And if he has a bad day, he's thankful he's in the big leagues." e With the season nearing the halfway point, the top candidate for the American League's Rookie of the Year honor is Chicago's 22-year-old Melido Perez, who was 6-2 with a 3.29 earned run L 4 a : J "I've had a history of the wheels coming off in a hurry, so I take them one at a time. " Pirates pitcher Bob Walk the staff. "I don't know how I'm going to get them all on there, but he definitely has to be talked about." With eight wins, Walk is over halfway to proving what he's maintained for the last couple of seasons that if he's left in the starting rotation for an entire season he could win 15 games. "I've had a history of the wheels coming off in a hurry, so I take them one at a time," Walk said. "But I've felt that if I started 35 games over a 162-game season, I could win 15. I'm not going to be no star, but I still think I can be a good big-league pitcher. I think I can do that." He'd get no argument from the Cardinals, e NOTES - The Pirates will open the 1989 season at Montreal, according to the tentative schedule for next season . . . Bonds, sidelined with a left knee bruise, is expected to play tonight in New York . . . Walk hasn't allowed a home run since Sept. 14, 1987 (Tim Raines) 110 innings ago . . . Walk's two balks raised the Pirates' total to 22 this season. They were called for 18 all of last season. Agricultural report: Buffalo (34-33) lost at Maine, 5-2, Saturday. First baseman Orestes Destrade had a two-run double. Harrisburg (34-30) beat Vermont, 10-2. Second baseman Kevin Burdick went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple.

"I feel bad because I'm going to miss the Mets series," Cangelosi said, "but it's the smart thing to do." Cangelosi injured his right thumb May 25 making a diving catch in left-center field against Houston. He was hitless in his next six at-bats before being placed on the disabled list effective June 6. If Cangelosi were an everyday player, he probably would've come off the DL tomorrow. "But I'm a pinch-hitter," he said. "For me to get my stroke back, getting maybe four or five at-bats a week would be kind of tough. I'll go to Buffalo and play center field every day. That way I can be sure I'm 100 percent." Pitching coach Ray Miller said he spotted something in Mike Dunne's delivery that might help the right-hander in his next scheduled start, Wednesday in New York. After Dunne's loss to St. Louis Friday night, Miller looked at videotape and noticed Dunne was planting his left leg in a different spot than last season. "He was collapsing his front leg," Miller said of Dunne, who's walked 18 batters in his past 22 innings. "Last year, he locked his front leg and threw PIRATE BOX SCORES Sunday's game Pirates 3, St. Louis 2 ST.

HIGHS AND LOWS David Cone of the New York Mets pitched 7Vj hit-less innings before Philadelphia's Steve Jeltz hit a soft liner to center field. Cleveland's Tom Can-diotti struck out 10, walked none and completed his American League-leading ninth game to snap his five-game losing streak. Yankees reliever Tim Stoddard walked five of the eight batters he faced. He also yielded two hits and four runs. Tom Filer of Milwaukee saw his 12-game, six-year winning streak end against Chicago's Dave LaPoint, who last won on May 14. California's Mike Witt extended his scoreless innings streak to 21. Dickie Noles of Baltimore allowed five Boston runs in 1Vi innings, swelling his ERA to 24.32. Four Dodgers ho- average after beating Minnesota last Monday. "He really battles," White Sox Manager Jim Fregosi said. "He's got a lot of poise and confidence. He's got to be the front-runner. He's done the job and pitched well all year." e Texas knuckleballer Charlie Hough is 14-5 lifetime against Oakland but has no idea why. "I guess it's because they swing hard, and I pitch soft," he said . . . Don Baylor, a free agent who signed with Oakland rather than Kansas City, told a Kansas City, Mo., writer why: "A big key was when the Royals told me I'd have to platoon with Jim Eisenreich. Nothing against Eisenreich, but having to platoon with Dave Parker is a little different" ... San Francisco catcher Bob Brenly calls Candlestick Park "a landfill on top of a fault." e The Royals recently sent Scotti Madison to the minor leagues. After being hit in the face with a pitch, Madison was asked by the team trainer if he knew were he was. "Well," Madison said, "I know I'm not in the majors." against it. His sinker really dove. This year, his sinker's sinking, but it's a pushed sink. It happened with that rib cage thing that put Dunne on the disabled list in April ." Dunne threw on the sidelines Saturday, using the newold delivery. "It felt like last year," Dunne said. "It felt, uh, normal." e The Pirates have fired Augusta Manager Jeff Cox, whose team finished second in its division after the first half of the South Atlantic League season. The Class A team had a 44-26 record. Cox could not be reached yesterday and reportedly was on his way home to California. But Augusta General Manager Len Monheimer said the firing came after Cox benched standout center fielder Moises Alou during a showdown series with Myrtle Beach, S.C., for the first-half title. "Evidently, it was a disciplinary problem," Monheimer said. The Pirates were upset about Alou's benching and discussed that and other issues with Cox. However, Syd Thrift declined to elaborate on the firing. "Player development is the No. 1 thing in our player development program," the Pirates' general manager said. "It's more important than winning." Replacing Cox is Woody Huyke, the long-time manager at Bradenton of the Rookie League. Julio Garcia will manage Bradenton this season. He'd been hired by the Pirates as a roving infield instructor. Saturday's game St. Louis 6, Pirates 3 ST.
