Millwood 22 at Florida Los Angeles Valdez 69 at Chicago Cubs Trachsel Astros blank Mets HOUSTON AP Houston Astros manager Larry Dierker and pitcher Mike Hampton gen erally agree on when the left handers confidence started to turn around this season They just disagree on why Whatever Hampton continued his streak of success Saturday with a threehitter to beat the New York Mets 60 Hampton 97 won his sixth straight decision tying a career best set in 1995 He struck out seven and walked three in his second career shutout and his fifth complete game in the last seven starts Hampton who was 50 with a ERA in now 70 at home But he was 37 overall in late May when Dierker decided to have him miss one turn in the rotation I was trying to find a way to get him to get his confidence Dierker explained I wanted him to sit down a while and take a look at the big picture I told him hed won three games and I thought he was still going to win a ton of them But instead of wal lowing in the mire I wanted him to take a step back and think about it To me that was the turning point because it helped him get his confi he said Hampton said he wasnt thinking about big picture when he missed that start I think that was my turning point he said But actually what it did was tick me off The next game in San Francisco I walked the bases loaded and walked in a run Id never done that before and I really got mad then I started pitching better then and now that I look back on it it was a good move to sit me down for one start But Im not going to lie to you It really upset me I guess you need that he said i Jeff Bagwell hit his 29th home run to start the scoring for Houston in the first Derek Bells tworun double keyed a fourrun third inning Hall of Fame to induct artful Dodger manager from

Nellie Fox elected like Lasorda by the committee on veterans and IMegro Leagues Willie Wells was a native of Austin Texas The Taylor Spink award will go 1o longtimeNew York and Pittsburgh sports writer Charley Feeney and the Tord Frick Award will be presented Jimmy Dudley voice of the Cleveland Indians from If Lasorda were a salesman heel win the incentive trip to Hawaii every year lie knew how to sell the Dodgers to America and the players to themselves Tommys a very psychologically astute said longtime Dodgers catcher Mike Scioscia now a coach with the team He knows how to read people and knows what they need to get them going And thats what made him a great There were of course the emotion al embraces in front of the dugout public displays olatlection that made Lasordas Dodgers baseballs huggin gest team They were according to Scioscia not always all they seemed to be I think thats probably the biggest misconception the public he said To run a club it s not just all hugging You have to know who to pat on the back when to pat him on the back when you have to kick them in the bun and when you have to stroke them a little bit And Tommy had that gift to know what players needed what And the timing was always on the money with Perhaps Lasorda the psychologist was at his best with pitcher Orel Hershiser who looked like a comput er programmer and threw like one When the manager was done Hershiser was nicknamed Bulldog and later set the record for consecu tive scoreless innings Orel is a real deep thinker very cerebral and it didnt really look like he had that intestinal fortitude that was going to make him match his physical talents and be such a great Scioscia said He had a great arm but it takes more than that to Lasorda of course knew all about pitchers He loves to tell the story about being the last cut by his beloved Dodgers in 1955 because the team needed roster space for another left hander named Sandy Koufax The leftover lefthander pitched until then turned to coaching and managing He succeeded Walt Alston as manager of the Dodgers at the end of 1976 and won National League pennants in his first two full seasons 1977 and 1978 In 1981 and 1988 Los Angeles won the World Series Lasorda now a vice president with the team always preached the Dodgers as family He knew the names of players parents wives and children everyone it seemed except the dry cleaner and gardener All of this was viewed with some skepticism by players on other teams who thought nobody could be that enthusiastic about his team Brett Butler was one of the doubters until he got to Los Angeles in 1991 I thought it was all a he said I mean I thought all this Dodger Blue and I bleed Dodger blue was all kind of a facade I thought it was a He found out otherwise It was actually Butler said Tommy actually loved the Dodgers and baseball more than anything in the whole world I think Tommy actu ally loved the Dodgers more than he loves life That raises the question of Jo Lasorda the exmanagers wife of 47 years Early on Lasorda reportedly made things clear to his bride Honey I love the he said but I love you more than foot For AH Your Body Shop Needs BECKER MOTOR CO
