C4 The Sun SATURDAY, May 7, 1994 Spirit wins rain-shortened game vs. Ports By Pete Marshall Special to The Sun SAN BERNARDINO Rain seems to follow the San Bernardino Spirit. After enduring three rainouts last week, the Spirit returned home from a weeklong Northern Division road trip to Fiscalini Field on Friday to, yes, more rain. The game with the Stockton Ports got under way 40 minutes late, but lasted only 5'j innings with the Spirit taking a 1-0 decision before 792 rain-soaked fans. The start of the game was delayed to get the field ready after afternoon rain. It started to drizzle in the third inning, but stopped. In the bottom of the fifth with the game official the rain picked up again, harder. The Spirit staff added a drying agent to the infield in the top of the sixth, but after Colin Dixon led off with a single in the bottom of the sixth the game was delayed with a 1-0 count on Jason Wuerch. After waiting the required 30 minutes, the game was called by umpires Ian Lamplugh and Tom Hiler. "It's good to get the win," Spirit manager Greg Mahlberg said. "I know how (Stockton manager) Lamar (Johnson) feels. It's never easy being on the side of a loss, but especially in a game like this."

JelT Motu-zas led o(T with a single, but Ed Tovar forced him out at second. Jose Peguero singled to left and with two outs Steve Phillips and Dixon walked to force in a run. "We scored the run, but I almost second-guessed myself for not bunting Tovar," Mahlberg said. "(But) it's hard not to let a guy like that (hitting .344) swing the bat. "But we had more opportunities. We had the bases loaded but scored just one run." Spirit starter Rob Parkins (3-2) went all the way, allowing four hits and four walks, and striking out 10.

Trailing 4-1 in the top of the ninth, the Quakes jumped on Giants closer Mike McClain, sending six batters to the plate and getting two hits and two runs. Quakes starter Ken Grzelac-zyk got off to a good start, holding the Giants to just four hits in five shutout innings. But with Rancho Cucamonga up 1-0, Adrian Hol-linger came in to relieve and took the loss by walking five and giving up a hit and four runs, three of them earned, in 2'3 innings. The Quakes face San Jose again today at 5 p.m. in the second game of their three-game series. APSUN STAFF THE TIIEO ANNUU IMAM EMPIRE BBQ Inland Empire FABULOUS FIFTIES Ford CM d America, Inc.

He, too, pitched the entire game, allowing seven hits while walking two and striking out four. Spirit notes , The Spirit announced several roster moves Friday. Right-handed pitcher Steve Munda was assigned to the Spirit from the Yankees. Munda, who was in extended spring training in Florida, was expected to join the team after Friday's game.
