From Sun News Services Sanders paces Mavs over Ports STOCKTON Scott Sanders threw a two-hitter to lead the High Desert Mavericks to a 5-0 victory over the Stockton Ports in Cal League action Sunday night. Sanders (8-6) gave up singles in the third and seventh innings as the Mavericks (36-23) stayed 17a games ahead of Bakersfield in the Southern Division. Bakersfield (34-24) beat the San Bernardino Spirit, 13-1. High Desert managed only four hits, but was able to put together a four-run second for the victory. Driving in runs for the Mavericks were Steve Martin, Matt Mieske, John Abercrombie and J.D. Holbert. Matt Witkowski scored twice and had a triple.

Bakersfield bashes struggling Spirit By MARC STEIN Sun Sports Writer BAKERSFIELD With four RBI from Garey Ingram and three more from Spirit-killer Mike Piazza, the Bakersfield Dodgers routed San Bernardino, 13-1, in front of 1,882 at Sam Lynn Ball Park Sunday night. It was close for two innings. After that, ugly. Bakersfield scored five runs in the third, three in the fourth and four in the fifth before San Bernardino finally managed a response to Dodgers starter Jody Treadwell. And to score in the sixth, the Spirit (21-37) needed three-error help from the Dodgers (34-24). As usual, Piazza was the source of the Spirit's latest stumble. His RBI double in the third scored Domingo Mota with the first of Bakersfield's five runs in the inning. In the fourth, the Spirit tried to avoid Piazza, which didn't help either. Oscar Rivas intentionally walked him, only to allow a three-run homer to Ingram, the next hitter. To make sure San Bernardino had no thoughts of a recovery. Piazza keyed a four-run fifth with a two-run single. Piazza thus increased his team-leading RBI total to 76, an honor he figures to keep with 10 games to play. He and Ingram, though, weren't the only Dodgers to produce. Right fielder Dan Cardenas had three hits and two runs, and utility infielder Helms Bohringer, making a rare start, was 2-for-4 with two RBI. Treadwell left after the seventh, and still the Spirit hitters struggled. After Brian Piotrowicz pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, Dodgers right-hander Gordon Tipton struck out Brian Stephens, Craig Clayton and Greg Hunter in the ninth.

Kings to practice at Blue Jay Ice Castle The Sun Although the Los Angeles Kings open training camp Sept. 7 within 25 miles of San Bernardino, area fans won't be seeing much of their favorite players. Kings practice sessions are closed to the public, leaving two intrasquad games and a Sept. 13 exhibition against the San Jose Sharks at the Ice Castle in nearby Blue Jay as the only opportunities for live viewing. On the Kings' normal workout days, spectators will not be admitted. Dates for the intrasquad games have not been released. Los Angeles has trained at the Ice Castle in the past, including a short stay there last season before its first-round playoff series. In 1990-91, the Kings' preseason camp was in Hull, Quebec. They are the defending Smythe Division champions, and have added another of Wayne Gretzky's former Edmonton Oilers teammates, high-scoring Jari Kurd, in an attempt to win the franchise's first Stanley Cup. "We've had interest from a lot of teams, like the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Islanders," said Ice Castle spokesman Glenn Jones. "It's very exciting to have the Kings." The Kings will train at Ice Castle until Sept. 15. Tickets for their three games there will be available in about a week, and Jones said stadium capacity is about 950.
