Luling came back and won the second game 111 Major League Baseball By The Associated Press ARLINGTON Texas Texas Rangers started the season with several questions about their pitching staff Lefthander Darren Oliv er was near the top of the list Oliver continued his comeback from a partially torn left rotator cuff that ended his 1995 season on June 26 holding the potent Cleveland Indians to one run and five hits over seven innings as the Rangers stretched their winning streak to four games with an 113 victory Tuesday night The Rangers fifth starter Oliver improved to 42 matching last seasons victory total and boosting his career mark against Cleveland to 30 with a ERA That was a terrific effort by Darren Rangers manager Johnny Gates said He had an excellent fastball and he was able to throw his break ing ball over when He had to It was a magnificent Oliver sees his comeback as an ongoing process He is continuing to rebuild arm strength and threw 91 pitches against the Indians PITTSBURGH that the Pittsburgh Pirates are only 11 games under 500 their conversation has turned to the Central Division title Thats right a division title for a team that didnt get its 20th win until May was almost over Pittsburgh edged Houston 65 Tuesday night end ing the Astros fourgame winning streak The Pirates are in last place which is where a team with a 2031 record and 392 winning percentage usually is Still theyre just five games behind the firstplace Astros and third baseman Charlie Hayes said theyre in the race Youve got to reach for the Hayes said Dont look at our record look at first place The record doesnt mean anything We can get right back in this The Pirates will need more of the lateinning heroics of Hayes Jason Kendall and Orlando Merced Hayes hit a tworun gametying homer off Greg Swindell 02 in the eighth and Kendall drove in the goahead run with a triple Finally some signs of life in NBA playoffs Thomas Godley They are robots That was my con clusion after watch ing the NBA play offs for the last two months I figured it wouldnt be long before the game completely turned into an electronic show of 611 guards programmed to iso late on the most efficient matchup Forget improvisation Dont try fast breaking Jump hooks are a thing of the past Today its about bringing the ball up court identifying the highest percentage shot and implementing the game plan Find the mismatch and get it to the big dollar player Fling it to an open guard for the trey or set it down low and draw a foul The assistant coaches clipboard has all the odds calculated by basketball statisti cians over decades During the regular season they are programmed to carry out this mission They are professional players paid mil lions to fill a role and they better do exactly as told because a free agent is right around the corner It hardly made for a memorable play off series thus far The games were becoming as scripted as a B movie as predictable as the Las Vegas bookies taking Chicago in the finals Not a sin gle series yet has been decided on a piv otal seventh game It was getting bleak The Bulls locked up the Eastern Con ference in convincing style going 111 and steamrolling what appeared to be a worthy opponent in Orlando Jordan occasionally revealed a bas ketball work of art making the game seem almost human But even he gets caught up in the science of it all talking about money and The point has been made in the past but give me the days of the Lakers Celtics when passes meant something and players had souls Sure they took advantage of mismatches but U was only one aspect of the game The Lak ers had the fastbreak and the Celtics ran pick and rolls to perfection Chicago looks like a combination of those two teams after breezing through the playoffs with only one loss The Seattle Sonics were on the same path They had Utah on the ropes at home needing only one more win to wrap up the Western Conference But last nights Game S offered a glimmer of hope These guys were real ly going at it battling back and forth until the final seconds when John Stockton came up with a turnover The playoffs have a way of bringing out the human side of it Seattles Detlef Schrempf the classic example of the new age basketball robot came off as human last night Schrempf was brought in specifically to create mis matches for Utah Put a guard on him he posts up low Put a forward on him he can dribble and hit the three Hes a coaches laboratory dream a computer on the court His shots were not falling and Antoine Carr was on The Sonics couldnt overcome the statistical dispar ity at the forward position Karl Malone and Jeff Homacek had enough heart make up for a struggling Stockton and pull out a win that Seattle had already logged into the computer
