Stars After Detroit controlled play for the first two periods Scott Thornton and Aaron Gavey scored 45 seconds apart early in the third as the Stars stormed back for a 52 victory Wednesday night Patience is something we take pride said Mike Modano who had a goal and an assist dur ing the period We write our keys down before the game and we stick to them More often than not it helps us This was the seventh time the Stars have won when trailing after two Its been a real positive thing to know we can come from behind in the third especially against a team like Modano said Brett Hull and Mike Keane also scored for Dallas Vyacheslav Kozlov and Brendan Shanahan scored for Detroit Were kind of like two Shanahan said We had a good start good mid dle and bad finish This is the second time in three games weve come out and had a disastrous third Thorntons fourth goal on the rebound of Kirk Mullers shot tied it at 2 just f ffitb thethird period Fortyfive seconds later Gavey skated in unchecked on the left side took a pass from Modano and snapped it just inside the post past goalie Chris Osgood for a 32 lead Modanos 27th goal made it 42 with left and Keane iced it 40 seconds later with his eighth I think this is Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said This builds a lot of confidence in this This was the third meeting between Dallas and Detroit They split the first two each winning on the other teams ice Shanahans 33rd goal a blast from the right cir cle that handcuffed goalie Ed Belfour gave Detroit a 21 lead at of the second period Detroit had stymied Hitchcock said Stars recall

one assist in 32 games with Dallas Once they got the 21 lead we werent getting a sniff Then we got that goal early in the third and it seemed to change Kozlov scored his 16th goal at on the first shot of the game taking a pass in the left circle from Steve Duchesne and slapping the puck between Belfours pads Muller got the puck away from Detroit defense man Chris Chelios near the Red Wings blue line to set up Hulls 18th goal Muller pushed it ahead to Thornton who fed it to Hull skating in alone Hull drew Osgood down with a fake then flipped the puck under the cross bar to tie it 1all with

Kevin Towers said Al Martin has had success hitting at the top and mid dle of the lineup and has always been a club leader and a tremen dous clubhouse Meanwhile Strawberry was ordered off the practice field and could be suspended for the season after a positive cocaine test The Yankees were taking batting practice when Strawberry was told to go to the clubhouse where gen eral manager Brian Cashman relayed the message from the commissioners office We were trying to do it with as little fanfare as manager Joe Torre said Elsewhere Frank Thomas reported to White Sox camp Ray Lankford was a noshow for the Cardinals and Jeff Kent was side lined for San Francisco Martin replaces Quilvio Veras atop the Padres lineup even though his 337 onbase percent age was low for a leadoff hitter 1 like Al Martin but the thing is is he a leadoff hitter Padres star Tony Gwynn asked Al Martin is a guy who can help us but Im not sure he helps us in the leadoff Martin hit 277 with 97 runs scored a careerhigh 24 homers and 20 steals last year I try to set the tone by being aggressive and getting on he said Runs are what wins games not onbase The Pirates received TripleA reliever Jim Sak who may com pete for their closers job and righthander Geraldo Padua a borderline prospect The trade clears the way for Chad Hermansen who hit 60 homers in TripleA the last two seasons to play every day in the majors He will play alongside Brian Giles in either right or cen ter field with Wil Cordero replac ing Martin in left We need to see what Chad is or what hes going to be We know he has great tools and he had two great years in manager Gene Lament said The Yankees had been counting on Strawberry to be their top des ignated hitter this season with the retirement of Chili Davis I hope its not the end for him because I dont know what that would Torre said Strawberry who has already been suspended twice for drugs is expected to learn his fate from commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday Asked if a oneyear sus pension was likely a highranking baseball official speaking on the condition he not be identified said Thats a good The eighttime AllStar who turns 38 next month tested posi tive for cocaine Jan 19 a viola tion of probation stemming from a nocontest plea to charges of cocaine possession and soliciting a prostitute in Tampa last spring Im going to stand by him Im going to try to see that he rights his life If its in baseball fine If its outside baseball owner George Steinbrenner said It isnt like George has given him enough chances now dump him Dump him I dont think Thomas arrived in Tucson after missing Chicagos first workout to be with his ailing father I thought I would lose him over Thomas said Hes doing a little better But you have bad kidneys and heart at the same time its a tough Thomas the AL MVP in 1993 and 1994 is hoping to reverse his struggles at the plate the last two seasons by working again with former hitting coach Walt Hriniak I worked with him for years You saw the best of me with Thomas said Were bringing him just as a Lankford was the only player to miss St Louis first full workout in Jupiter Fla Were concerned we havent heard from him manager Tony La Russa said Lankford has until March 1 to report La Russa said he heard Lankford was in Jupiter In Scottsdale Kent was sidelined by u strained rib cage muscle as the rest of the San Francisco Giants had their first fullsquad workout Woods Campbell go head to head at Match Play Championship CARLSBAD Calif AP They dressed in the same colors wore the same swoosh even looked strikingly similar from a distance Tiger Woods and Michael Campbell shared one other thing in com mon they were the two hottest players in the world And then they played the first hole Woods didnt need long to remind Campbell and perhaps the rest of the field in the Match Play Championship that hes still the player to beat In what figured to be a tough match Woods made short work of Campbell for a 5 and 4 victory Wednesday at chilly La Costa Resort Michael has obviously been playing well of Woods said I just hope everybody didnt forget Ive been playing good for the same La Costa was socked by rain late in the first round that left two matches suspended until Thursday Still the other 30 matches proved once again that rankings mean very little over 18 holes of the most unpredictable format in golf Vijay Singh Nick Price and Phil Mickelson all ranked in the top 10 will have to settle for a check and the rest of the week off after being eliminated It wasnt as bad as last year when five of the top seven seeds were eliminated the first day but there were a fair share of surprises None was greater than Mickelson the No 9 seed who only two weeks ago ended Woods PGA Tour winning streak at six Mickelson faced a 12foot eagle putt on the 20th hole to beat Billy Mayfair his good friend and neighbor in Phoenix until a shocking reversal in a matter of seconds Mayfair who had to make a 6footer on No 18 to send the match into overtime holed his bunker shot from about 30 feet for eagle and Mickelsons putt to tie grazed the lip I was happy to win but I feel bad for Mayfair said We knew one of us had to lose We went to the extreme out there It felt more like Sunday afternoon than Duffy Waldorf knocked off Singh the No 6 seed on the 17th hole and Mark Calcavecchia overcame shaky putting early on to stop Price 2
