JOE CYBULSKI Farm report Withem likes his first taste of pro ball Shannon Withem recently got his first taste of professional baseball, and he already has learned one valuable lesson how to cook. I: ' But for now, Rusty Staub's title as king of the baseball chefs is safe. ' "He's pretty good at boiling waiter," said Shan non's father, Al-,'vin, after ; returning from a visit to Bristol, Va. "But he does look like he gained some weight." Withem, an all-state pitcher at Willow Run, was the Tigers' fifth pick in the June draft. He declined a schol-,'arship to Central Michigan, and the Tigers sent him to Bristol, their Appalachian League (Rookie) team. "I knew I would get drafted," said Withem, who still plans to attend Central Michigan. "I was,surprised to go in the fifth round. If I had been drafted any lower I would have just gone to college. I've made my choice, and I'm happy with it." Withem (2-6), a right-hander, started slowly, losing his first five starts, but . he won two of his last three. "The first few times I was really nervous and I didn't understand how they wanted me to pitch," Withem said. "Now I understand what I have to do. I'm learning to pitch and not just throw. They've even changed my windup. I need to get better placement on my pitches and a little more endurance." Road trips and life in a small town have given him a mild case of culture shock. "There's really nothing to do," Withem said. "The older guys can go out to nightclubs, but I'm too young. I just go to bed late and get up late." -LOOKING UP: The farm system's playoff ' chances are much better than that of the Tigers. With less then a month left in the season, four of the Tigers' six clubs are in contention. Only Toledo (Triple-A) and Bristol have losing records. Through Monday's games, London (Double-A) was third in the Eastern League at 60-52. The top four teams qualify for the playoffs. ' Lakeland (Class A) qualified for the playoffs in the Florida State League by winning the first half of the season. Lakeland (29-17) also leads the second half. Niagara Falls (Class A) is second in the Stedler Division of the New York-Penn League at 26-23. The top two teams qualify for the playoffs. Fayetteville (Class A) qualified for the playoffs by winning the first half of the South Atlantic league. The Generals are 26-20 in the second half. Winning on the minor league level, in addition to developing players, has been a Tigers' priority. London first baseman Rico Brogna discovered the intensity of the stretch drive has helped his performance. . ;: "You have to be intense night in and night out," Brogna said, "especially toward the end. The level of play in the . games has helped me, and it's always . fun to be in a race." ' LOOKING FOR NO. 1: Although a record- tying seven no-hitters have been pitched in the major leagues this season, there have been none in the Eastern League. Only once in the last 10 years has the league not had a no-hitter in 1987. The league record is nine, set in 1967. SIGN HERE: Niagara Falls signed two players after an open tryout last Saturday at Sal Maglie Stadium. Right-hander Brian Turn, 20, pitched at Niagara University, and catcher Jim Voutour, 24, played at Coastal Carolina and Brockport State. "The baseball community of Niagara Falls is very strong, and the skill level of these two players was too great to overlook," said Niagara Falls general manager Tom Prohaska. "They had an outstanding tryout and impressed both (manager and coach) - Juan Lopez and Joe Decker." JOIliS HOT: Former Eastern Michigan . catcher Chris Hoiles, playing for Balti-'more's Triple-A club at Rochester, N.Y., continues to be one of the minors' . hottest hitters. Hoiles is batting .369 with 16 home runs. Hoiles, drafted by the Tigers in 1986, was traded to Baltimore as part of the Fred Lynn deal in 1988. Dan Rambo, a right-hander from Central Michigan and Sault Ste. Marie, is 10-0 with a 1.73 ERA at Class A San Jose. Rambo was drafted by San Francisco in 1989. . Steve Perry (Detroit King) is 5-1 with Class A Oneonta in the New York Yankees' farm system. tigers Down 0;i The farm (Through Monday) Toledo Mud Hens (AAA) BATTING AVG AB R H HR RBI SB TimLeiper .321 168 21 54 2 25 2 Domingo Michel .284 257 29 73 7 47 3 S Lombardoni .270 111 20 30 3 14 1 Shawn Hare .266 369 50 96 8 52 9 Torey LovuHo .266 384 60 102 12 42 2 Scott Livingstone .264 250 34 66 6 24 1 Rich Rowland .258 120 15 31 5 17 1 MinCuyter .256 363 64 93 1 35 44 Phil Oueltette .240 242 27 58 7 28 1 JimUndeman .239 297 42 71 12 45 0 Lavel Freeman .214 280 37 60 5 26 5 Kari Allaire .211 57 9 12 0 2 0 Phil Clark .211 142 11 30 2 14 0 PITCHING W-l ERA SV P H BB SO Brian Dubois 4-3 1.70 0 53.0 44 21 34 Bobby Link 14 2.35 5 23.0 15 13 17 Lino Rivera 0-1 3.00 1 12.0 13 5 13 Clay Parker 2-5 3.33 0 54.0 58 13 34 MikeSchwabe 5-3 344 4 86.1 80 16 54 Eric Stone 1-2 3.74 4 45.2 35 42 40 Don Vesting 3-5 4.14 1 91.1 89 37 47 Randy Nosek 5-5 5.09 0 88.1 90 49 46 Kevin Ritz 2-4 5.18 0 64.1 71 44 41 Mike Hansen 2-5 5.21 0 46.2 59 17 31 UrbanoLugo 1-2 5.23 1 41.1 39 14 24 Scott Aldred 6-10 5.36 0 121.0 115 65 100 London (AA) BATTING AVG AB R H HR RbTsB Doyle Balthazar .339 56 8 19 2 10 0 Jody Hurst .277 65 11 18 2 6 3 DeanDecillis .276 163 14 45 1 15 2 JohnToale .276 279 34 77 11 43 0 Rico Brogna .264 394 57 104 18 59 1 AmieBeyeier .260 331 42 86 0 23 5 Steve Pegues .254 393 37 100 7 50 14 Craig WHey .240 99 11 23 2 8 3 Steve Green .238 143 18 34 1 15 ' 0 Jim Baxter .237 38 6 9 1 4 0 Basilio Cabrera .231 308 31 71 3 25 15 LiusGalmdo .225 329 26 74 1 24 0 RonMarigny .224 174 13 39 0 9 1 Richard Ingram .221 195 19 43 0 15 2 LouFrazier .214 196 23 42 0 10 16 PITCHING W-L ERA SV IP H BB S"5 JohnKiely 3-0 1.84 7 68.1 56 36 49 KurtKnudsen 2-1 2.08 1 26.0 15 11 26 MikeWilkms 11-4 232 0 139.2 120 43 72 Jose Ramos 3-1 2.66 0 23.2 26 6 15 David Haas 9-7 3.23 0 136.2 115 61 94 R.

You make the call Gene Guidi NL -- It doesn't appear there will be a pennant winner in Montreal this season, but Expos fans have reason to cheer, anyway. Last week, the Reseau Des Sports television network, in concert with a company called Videotron, introduced cable viewers to an unusual way to watch an Expos game. For $16 a month, 25,000 RDS cable subscribers get a converter and remote control device that allows them to choose the camera view he or she wants. Buttons on the remote control produce different shots from cameras set up throughout the ballpark. Besides the basic wide view and the be-hind-the-mound shot, viewers can isolate players at close range, pro duce instant replays and get up-to-the-minute statistics. Richard Morency of the Expos explains: "During the time in a baseball game where nothing happens, you can hit different buttons on the zapper to isolate on different things. Say you want to look in the dugout to watch the manager. You just hit button five, and there he is." Morency said there have been interactive telecasts of hockey games, too, but they weren't as popular as the first experimental tjaseball telecast. "I think hockey moves a little too fast," Morency said. "Baseball involves more strategy " Interactive, which shows a variety of programming 13 hours a day, will offer 28 hockey games this winter and plans on a full schedule of baseball next season. If these telecasts continue to draw interest in Montreal, it's only a matter of time until the same thing is offered to fans in the United States. SERIES SHUTOUT: Dale Murphy's hopes of playing in the World Series at least once in his career all but ended last week when the Braves traded the 34-year-old outfielder to the Phillies. Murphy, a seven-time All-Star, made it to the National League playoffs once (1982) in his 14V2 years with Atlanta. His new team is a Ottle more competitive than the Braves, but Murphy probably will be just a spectator by the time the Phillies play in a World Series. Still, Murphy is happy to be with another team. "I felt it was time to move on," Murphy said. "I feel I can provide something for a few years somewhere else." There are players to be named in the trade, but the deal basically was Murphy for reliever Jeff Parrett. Braves general manager Bobby Cox didn't have much leverage because Murphy had said he would leave Atlanta as a free agent after the season. 7 : .- ' ''-Si. . ' V v - - : ' , 'J f J "r I :.; ' AH Dale Murphy's hopes of playing in the World Series at least once in his career all but ended last week when the Braves traded him to the Phillies. Cox must be kicking himself for the trade he didn't make in 1988 when the Mets offered Len Dykstra, Howard Johnson and Rick Aguilera for Murphy. Cox wanted minor league pitcher David West, too, and the deal died. PITCHING IN: Cardinals reliever Lee Smith is thrilled to be pitching in roomy Busch Stadium after spending all those years in two hitters' paradises Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. "Pitchers should go to a shrine and pray to pitch in St. Louis," Smith said. LEARNING THE HARD WAY: Pirates righthander Doug Drabek learned a lesson the hard way Friday night. Drabek, a breaking-ball pitcher who doesn't throw a very good fastball, was one out away from a no-hitter. Only Phillies' reserve infielder Sil Campusano, a .188 hitter, remained in Drabek's way. Instead of heeding the baseball rule that says make a weak batter hit your best pitch, Drabek threw Campusano a mediocre fastball on 3-2 that ended up in rightfield for the Phillies' first and only hit.
