fourth RBI Paul Shuey 31 pitched four scoreless innings He gave up just an infield hit and struck out five Cleveland trailed 41 and had only two hits off Toronto starter Pat Hentgen through six innings Omar Viztjuel opened the seventh with a single and Manny Ramirez walked Vizquel scored to make it 42 when catcher Charlie OBrien threw wildly past first in an attempt to pick off Ramirez

striking out eight without a walk Jeff Juden again was shaky for Cleveland allowing four runs two earned on six hits and three walks in five innings Shannon Stewart was hit in the bat ting helmet just above the left ear by Judens second pitch He crumpled to the ground but did not lose consciousness as teammates and trainer Tommy Craig rushed to his aid After a few minutes Stewart sat up then walked off the field replaced by pinchrunner Jacob Brumfield Physicians pronounced him fine Braves 5 Cardinals 3 ST LOUIS AP Greg Maddux overcame a threerun first inning deficit and Fred McGriff hit a two run homer leading the Atlanta Braves to a 53 victory over the St Louis Cardinals Saturday Maddux who had allowed a total of only four firstinning runs in 26 previous starts this season gave up a threerun homer to Ray Lankford in the first Maddux 163 had not won since July 27 with no decisions in his last three starts He was lifted fora pinch hitter after throwing 66 pitches in six innings on a 93degree day Maddux struck out two didnt walk anyone and allowed seven hits Mike Bielecki Mike Gather and Mark Wohlers each pitched one hit less inning for the Braves with Wohlers getting his 29th save The Cardinals are 28 against Atlanta this season and have lost eight of their last 12 overall In the St Louis first Brian Jordan and Mark McGwire singled before Lankford connected for his 24th home run of the season The Braves chipped away at the Cardinals lead with single runs in the fourth and fifth Kenny Lofton led off the fourth with a double moved to third on a sacrifice by Michael Tucker and scored on Chipper Jones grounder to short The Braves scored in the fifth on singles by Ryan Klesko and Jeff Blauser and a sacrifice fly by Eddie Perez McGriff put Atlanta ahead 43 in the sixth with his 16th home run off Cardinals starter Matt Morris Morris allowed four runs on eight hits with two walks and seven strikeouts in sevenplus innings Redhot Phillies win again Phillies HOUSTON AP The Philadelphia Phillies know theyre not going to the playoffs Theyre not exactly helping the Houston Astros get there either Gregg Jefferies hit a tworun homer in the ninth inning off closer Billy Wagner and the Phillies rallied to beat the Astros 53 Saturday for their sixth straight victory Phillies manager Terry Francona called the game one of the Phillies best of the year We were down 30 but against Darryl Kile it seemed like Francona said We didnt quit We kept coming The Phillies last won six in a row in June 1995 They have won 14 of 17 overall Everybody here is having a lot of fun right starting pitcher Tyler Green said We know were not going to the World Series but we can build on this Its a great feeling I think we could get used to The game marked the third straight loss for the NL Centralleading Astros It also prevented Kile from winning his 10th straight decision and becoming the leagues first 17game winner Kile took a 32 lead into the eighth but Scott Rolen led off with a single Wagner relieved with two outs and gave up a tying single to pinchhitter Kevin Jordan Its kind of tough to play a last place team but theyve been kicking our butts all shortstop Tim Bogar said Its frustrating but the bot tom line is theyre not as bad as their Wagner 75 walked Mickey Morandini with one out in the ninth and Jefferies hit his 11th homer of the season over the leftfield fence I told myself if he throws me a curveball hes going to strike me Jefferies said 1 was sitting on his fastball A guy throwing that hard you have to I sat on his fastball and fortunately I got Wagner was disappointed only with his fast ball to Jordan What can you say Jefferies hit 97 mph fastball Wagner said Show me someone who hits that consistently and Ill get worried The only pitch Id take back was the one to Jordan Im just going to continue throw ing the fastball If they can hit it theyll hit Jerry Spradlin 26 pitched one inning for the win Ricky Bottalico pitched the ninth for his 23rd save Kite allowed nine hits struck out four and walked one in 7 23 innings I felt pretty good their guys are just playing pretty well they kept scraping until the got the lead Kile said I left a couple of pitches up and they got some hits but we played a great game The Astros led 30 after five innings Rico Brogna singled home a run in the Phillies sixth and Morandini doubled home a run in the seventh Houston took a 20 lead in the sec ond off Green on a throwing error by Brogna at first base Luis Gonzalez and Sean Berry started the inning with singles and after Tony Eusebio reached on a force play Tim Bogar singled Chuck Carr followed with a bounc er to Brogna but his throw home was over catcher Mark Parents head allowing Berry and Eusebio to score Carr helped out in center field with a diving catch on a fly ball by Morandini to start the fourth Carr hit his third homer for a 30 lead in the fifth I think its evident we need to loosen Astros

three years in the 10th inning Saturday and picked up a win against his former team as the Texas Rangers beat the New York Yankees 85 Wetteland who saved all four of New Yorks World Series wins last
