(AP) — Dean Palmer homered twice and drove in four runs and the Kansas City Royals hit a season-high five homers in beating the Boston Red Sox 10-3 Saturday. Palmer, who was dealt from Texas to Kansas City on July- 25, is 12-for-34 with two home runs and eight RBIs since the trade. The five home runs — the otters were by Chili Davis, Mike Macfarlane and Yam ii Benitez — were the most by Kansas-City since the Royals hit five at Minnesota Aug. 6,1995. Tim Belcher (11-9) scattered eight hits and allowed three runs in 6 2-3 innings. Aaron Sele (10-8) lasted just 2 2-3 innings and allowed four runs on five hits. The Red Sox scored two unearned runs in the top of the first on Reggie Jefferson's two-run double, but it took the Royals just two pitches to tie the game in the second.Cardinals 2, Milles I PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Mark McGwire got his first NL hit and also scored the go-ahead run Saturday as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1. Todd Stottlemyre (11-7) pitched eight strong innings and the Cardinals snapped a four-game losing streak. Philadelphia^ season-high four-game winning string ended. The Cardinals scored twice in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Ron Gant walked with the bases loaded, forcing home McGwire for a 2-1 lead. McGwire, traded by Oakland to the Cardinals on Thursday, went I-for-3 with a walk. Hitless on Friday night, he got his first hit for St. Louis in the sixth, an infield single. Willie McGee led off die sixth with „ a double and McGwire followed with his hit. Gary Gaettrt RBI single tied the sSore at I, and Danny Sheaffer singled to load the bases. After Mike Difelice struck out, Gant walked on a 3-2 pitch horn Matt Saturday’s Games Beech (0-7). Pirates I, Rookies S PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joe Randall two-run triple was one of only two Pittsburgh hits in a five-run fifth inning, and die Pirates held off a four-run Colorado comeback in the eighth to beat die Rockies 6-5 Saturday. Larry Walker homered for the third straight game and also had an RBI double for Colorado. The Rockies lost despite outhitting Pittsburgh 13-5. Francisco Cordova (8-6) left with a 6-1 lead after seven innings, but the Rockies scored four times in the eighth against reliever Marc Wilkins. Clint Sodowsky retired Neifi Perez on an inning-ending grounder with the bases loaded in the eighth, and Rich Loiselle pitched the ninth for his 17th save. The Pirates, staying six games behind division-leading Houston in die NL Central, scored their first two runs in the fifth without a hit on three walks by Rockies starter Bill Swift (4-5) and second baseman Erie Young's throwing error. Reds Qi«its I CINCINNATI (AP) — Brett Tomko struck out a career-high IO batters Saturday as he returned to the Cincinnati starting rotation and the Reds hit three homers off Mark Gardner for a 5-1 victory over the fading San Francisco Giants. Tomko (6-3), relegated to long relief for his last three appearances as the Reds showcased their veteran starters for trades, held the Giants to a pair of hits over seven innings and pitched out of a one-out, bases-loaded threat in the fourth. Barry Bonds’ solo homer, his 28th, provided San Francisco^ run in the sixth. Jeff Shaw pitched two perfect innings to complete the two-hitter and close out only the Reds* fourth victory in their last 14 games.National League At A Glance All Times CDT By The Associated Press EasftJivision W L Pct.

They just disagree on why. Whatever, Hampton continued his streak of success Saturday with a three-hitter to beat the New York Mets 6-0. Hampton (9-7) 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 5-0 with a 2.25 ERA in July^ is now 7-0 at home. But he was 3-7 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 back,” Dierker explained. “I wanted him to sit down a while and take a look at the big picture. “I told him he’d won three games and I thought he was still going to win a ton of them. But instead of wallowing 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 confidence,” he said.    J Hampton said he wasn’t thinking about big picture when he missed that start. “I think that was my turning point, too,” 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. I’d 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 I’m not going to lie to you. It really upset me. I guess you need that sometimes,” he said.    ^    * Jeff Bagwell hit his 29th home run to start the scoring for Houston in the first. Derek Bell’s two-run double keyed a four-run third inning. Hall of Fame to induct artful Dodger manager f rom Page 1B ijnd only to Casey Stengel's 63. And it is tor being one of baseball's best .■ambassadors. ; Also being inducted into the Hall are: 118-game winner Phil Niekro, elected by the Baseball Writers •Association of America; second baseman Nellie Fox, elected like Lasorda by the committee on veterans; and Negro Leagues slugger Will ie Wells, who was a native of Austin, Texas. (The J Ci. Taylor Spink award will go Jo longtime New York and Pittsburgh sports writer Charley Feeney, and the Lord C Frick Award will be presented Jo Jimmy Dudley, voice of the Cleveland Indians from 1948-67. *, lf Lasorda were a salesman, he’d win the incentive trip to Hawaii every year. He knew how to sell the Dodgers to America and the players to themselves. “Tommy's a very psychologically ustute person,” 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 manager.” ' There were, of course, the emotional embraces in front of the dugout, public displays of affection that made Lasorda s Dodgers baseball’s huggin-gest team. They were, according to Scioscia, not always all they seemed to be. “I think that’s probably the biggest misconception the public has,” 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 butt 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 Tommy.” Perhaps Lasorda, the psychologist, was at his best with pitcher Orel Hershiser, who looked like a computer programmer and threw like one. When the manager was done, Hershiser was nicknamed Bulldog and later set the record for consecutive scoreless innings. “Orel is a real deep thinker, very cerebral, and it didn’t really look like he had that intestinal fortitude that was going to make him match his physical talents and be such a great pitcher,” Scioscia said. “He had a great arm, but it takes more than that to compete.” 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 lefthander named Sandy Koufax. The leftover left-hander pitched until 1960, 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 joke,” 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 front.” He found out otherwise. “It was actually true,” Butler said. “Tommy actually loved the Dodgers and baseball more than anything in the whole world. I think Tommy actually loved the Dodgers more than he loves life itself.” That raises the question of Jo Lasorda, the ex-manager’s wife of 47 years. Early on, Lasorda reportedly made things clear to his bride. “Hooey, I love the Dodgers,” he said, “but I love you more than football.” For All Your Body Shop Needs BECKER MOTOR CO. 547 S.
