Expos 4 Braves 1 ATLANTA - Kevin Gross and injured starter Oil Can Boyd combined on a six-hitter, and Mike Fitzgerald and bit a two-run homer as Montreal beat Atlanta in a rain-interrupted game. Gross (6-3) allowed five hits in six innings of relief following a 2-hour, 9-minute delay at the end of the third. He struck out seven and walked one. Boyd, who yielded a third-inning single to Ernie Whitt, was lifted because he strained his left hip while batting in that inning. Fitzgerald's second homer of the season came in the fifth, scoring Larry Walker, who had walked. Andres Galarraga added his fifth homer, off reliever Joe Boever, in the ninth.

"That umpiring crew has integrity, but to me everybody in the ballpark knew Belcher threw at Slaught. Randy got a little close to Belcher . The Dodgers pitch inside better than anybody in baseball. It's not my right to take that away from them, but we certainly are allowed to pitch inside, too. It's very upsetting." During that argument, Ley-land said Belcher should have been ejected for throwing at Slaught. "But," Froemming said, "Leyland didn't bring that up until Kramer was ejected.

By The Associated Press CHICAGO - Jerome Walton drove in three runs and rookie Mike Harkey won his fourth straight decision as the Chicago Cubs beat San Francisco, 5-1, yesterday, handing the last-place Giants their eight loss in 10 games. The Cubs, winning their second straight game after four consecutive losses, broke a 1-1 tie after two were out in the fourth inning against Bob Knepper (3-3). Joe Girardi walked and Harkey singled to deep short. Walton hit a sinking liner to right, which skipped past Rick Leach for a two-run triple. Harkey (5-1) pitched five innings before his right shoulder stiffened. He allowed seven hits, walked none and struck out four. Les Lancaster pitched the last four innings for his first save.

Pirates Manager Jim Leyland had angry words with Dodgers Manager Tommy La-sorda. Finally, Froemming, the chief umpire in the crew, warned both dugouts that any further incidents would result in the pitcher and his manager being ejected. "In my estimation, that the pitch behind Slaught was a message pitch to counter Brooks being hit," Froemming said. "We have the option of either expelling the pitcher or warning the benches. I took the second option." Play resumed. Order did not. In the top of the sixth, Kramer retired Alfredo Griffin without fanfare. Up stepped Belcher. On May 1 in Los Angeles, Bonilla went down in the dirt to avoid a head-high Belcher fastball after Van Slyke bunted for a single in the fourth inning. Two innings later, Kramer hit Belcher in the hip. The next day, Leyland talked with Lasorda and Scioscia, making a strong point. "I said it out there, and I meant it," Leyland said yesterday. "Every manager in baseball is supposed to protect his investment. I don't want any trouble, but my hitters are not targets." Yesterday, in the sixth inning, Kramer had strict orders from Leyland. "Definitely do not throw at anybody," Leyland had said. Kramer's first pitch to Belcher was inside, chest-high. Immediately, Hirschbeck ejected Kramer. Leyland also was gone. That touched off an argument by Leyland that lasted several minutes. "It appeared to me that Tim Belcher threw at Don Slaught," Leyland said, "because they the Dodgers assumed we threw at Hubie Brooks. Nobody knows what's going on in a Killebrew hospitalized CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) -A collapsed lung is expected to keep baseball Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew hospitalized for at least 10 days, his brother says. Killebrew, 53, underwent surgery Friday at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital in Arizona, said his brother, Bob. "The problem was a gastric ulcer that ruptured in his stomach," Bob Killebrew said. "The fluid backed up into his chest cavity and collapsed his lung." He requested privacy and the release of no information, Bob Killebrew said. He said his brother, who has a home at Payette, Idaho, was in Phoenix on business. Killebrew hit 573 home runs in a 22-year major league career that included years with the Washington Senators, Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals. Indians 3 Angels 0 ANAHEIM, Calif. - Brook Jacoby's one-out single in the 10th inning broke a scoreless tie and Cory Snyder followed with a two-run homer off Jim Abbott as Cleveland ended California's seven-game winning streak. Jacoby's bloop single to right was the fourth hit off hard-luck left-hander Abbott, who on his next pitch allowed Snyder's fifth homer. Doug Jones extended his major league lead in saves with his 16th by pitching a perfect 10th inning. Abbott (2-4) had retired 25 of 26 batters and 16 in a row before Candy Maldonado singled to start the 10th. Pinch-runner Stanley Jefferson moved to second on Sandy Alomar's bunt before scoring on Jacoby's hit. Cecilio Guante (2-2) worked one inning in relief of Bud Black, who held the Angels scoreless on six hits through eight.

Howell went to a full count on Lind, who fouled off one 3-2 pitch and then sent a single to the right of diving first baseman Eddie Murray. Bonilla and pinch-runner Redus scored on the hit, and Slaught went to third. But Brooks throw from right field got away from Scioscia, who had tried to tag the sliding Redus. It rolled to the backstop as Slaught chugged home with the game-winning run. "An emotionally uplifting win," Slaught said. "A great win," Leyland said, "temporarily. But wins are only as good as your next starting pitcher." Bob Patterson is scheduled to start for the Pirates tonight in Round II. Or III. Or IV, depending on who's counting.

Barry Bonds popped up for the second out, and up stepped Sid Bream to face Perry. "Give the players and coaches credit," Leyland said. "I did absolutely no managing once I got run ejected ." Third base coach Gene La-mont, running the team in Ley-land's stead, elected to allow Bream to face the left-hander rather than send up Jeff King to face right-hander Jay Howell, who would have replaced Perry. "Sid's done pretty well against Perry," said Lamont, who was told a few moments before by coach Milt May that Bream was 3-for-ll lifetime off Perry. "I thought it was a good decision," Leyland said. "Perry was struggling, obviously." Bream rewarded Lamont's confidence by grounding a single to center that sent Bonilla to third. With Slaught due up, Lasorda brought in Howell, who Weekend puts Bucs ahead of '89 crowds The Pirates drew 99,908 fans for their four Memorial Day weekend games, which wasn't bad considering the weather, said Rick Cerrone, vice president for public relations. "We held our own through it, considering we haven't seen the sun all weekend," he said. "We came out of it respectable." After 18 home dates the Bucs have drawn 314,098. That's slightly ahead of last year's 269,605, but a bit behind the 337,159 of 1988, the team's all-time attendance year. Cerrone said the weather was a "significant factor" all weekend, but most especially Friday night. The Pirates had sold about 35,000 tickets for that game against the San Francisco Giants, but rain reduced the crowd to 24,644. The Pirates drew 25,150 Saturday night, 23,943 Sunday and 26,171 yesterday.
