"We took shots of last night's game and replayed them in slow motion." said Gomez, whose Astros rode a 10-run seventh inning to a 10-1 National League romp over Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday night. "We knew that Cedeno was not hitting, so we took pictures of him and other players. This seemed to help us tonight." But Cedeno credits Phila- delphia pitcher Dick Ruthven. "He didn't show any respect for me." Cedeno said of Ruth- ven. who intentionally walked Roger Metzger in the seventh, filling the bases for Cedeno. "He got me mad. He had no respect for me as a hitter." Cedeno showed even less re- spect for Ruthven's pitching, whacking a grand-slam home run into the left field seats. "That was the first time Miners host Royals twice The Lethbridge Miners will host Medicine Hat Royals for a pair of exhibition fastball games at Dave Elton Park tonight. The first game of the scheduled doubleheader will start at and the second will follow right after. that anyone has walked a man to pitch to me in the big leagues." said Cedeno.
