Mets, Orosco clip Phillies
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
There are times when the New York Mets — despite the heroics of Dwight Gooden and associates — are badly in need of relief. That’s where Jesse Orosco comes in, and if he fails, all is generally lost.
The Mets, clinging to a one-game lead in the National League East, got a top-flight performance Tuesday night from Orosco, who pitched out of an eighth-inning jam to preserve a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies and extend the Mets’ winning streak to nine games.
It was just enough to keep them ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals, who held on to beat Pittsburgh 6-5 as Joaquin Andujar broke a tie with Gooden for the major-league lead with his 19th victory of the season.Cardinals 6, Pirates 5
It was a struggle for Andujar, 19-6, who pitched 7 1-3 innings, gave up nine hits, struck out two and walked two. But batterymate Darrell Porter made it possible by stroking a two-run double following a game-tying hit by Terry Pendleton in the sixth.Dodgers 2, Braves 1
Mike Marshall supplied the wood and catcher Steve Yeager the leather that propelled Los Angeles to its fifth straight victory and a com
manding eight-game lead in the NL West.
Marshall hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and Yeager made a sparkling pickup of a throw from Candy Maldonado to nail Atlanta’s Claudell Wshington, the potential tying run, at the plate in the ninth.Reds 3, Padres 2
Dave Parker his his 22nd home run of the season to highlight a three-run Cincinnati fourth that broke the Reds’ four-game losing streak and a runless drought of 25 innings.Expos 4, Cubs 1
Montreal’s Andre Dawson stopped Chicago with his bat and his glove, doubling in two runs in the second inning and chasing down a double by Jody Davis and making a strong throw that was relayed home to nip Ron Cey and end the fourth.Giants 4, Astros 2
San Francisco’s Mike Krukow, an inventive fellow, had a day he’ll never forget. He pitched a five-hitter, struck out a career-high 12 batters and hit his first home run of the season.
“I was inventing things today and getting them over for strikes,” Krukow said. ‘‘I’ve
always felt I could get a strikeout when I really need one.”Mariners 11, Angels 4
Mark Langston scattered IO hits for only his second complete game of the season and Alvin Davis homered as Seattle downed California, trimming the Angels’ lead to two games over Kansas City.Blue Jays 5, Rangers 3
Toronto extended its lead over New York to seven games in the Eastern Division by scoring all of its runs in the first inning at Texas.
Lloyd Moseby and Ranee Mulliniks hit consecutive homers and Ernie Whitt hit a two-run double to key the Blue Jays' biggest first inning of the season.Royals 6, Red Sox 3
George Brett raised his AL-leading batting average to .358 with four hits and Darryl Motley highlighted Kansas City’s four-run fifth inning with a three-run homer against Boston.White Sox 4, Yankees 3
Chicago, held hitless for 4 2-3 innings, came back to beat New York on homers by hot-hitting Ron Kittle and Carlton Fisk and an eighth-inning sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Reid Nichols.

Legal wrangling slows Tulane trial
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Playing out a complicated legal strategy, lawyers for former Tulane basketball star John “Hot Rod” Williams capitalized on a prosecution mistake to gain an extra chance for victory in his sports bribery trial.
Williams is accused of three counts of conspiracy and two counts of taking bribes to control the point spread in games against Southern Mississippi and Memphis State — allegations which could mean 17 years in prison and $35,000 in fines, if convicted.
The defense strategy adopted Tuesday apparently gives Williams a certain chance for a new trial on appeal, if he should be found guilty at the ongoing trial which goes into its third day today. In gaining that apparent advantage, the defense rejected a mistrial, which would have required starting the proceedings over again.
State District Judge Alvin Oser, visibly angered, declared the mistrial Tuesday evening when a witness referred to a tape-recorded statement that prosecutors had not made available for the judge's inspection.
Weeks ago, Oser and the state’s 4th Circuit Court of Appeal ordered prosecutors to produce for inspection all evidence and statements, so Oser could decide whether the people working to convict Williams might have evidence that could help to prove him innocent.
Defense lawyer Mike Green of Chicago complained frequently that the district attorney’s office was slow in responding.
Green had just begun cross examination of Williams’ former teammate, Jon Johnson, when Johnson mentioned that he gave a tape-recorded statement to Assistant District Attorney Erie Dubelier.
Oser called Dubelier into the courtroom, asked him if such a statement had been taken, and when Dubelier said the tape existed Oser ordered the mistrial.
Houston loses basketball player
HOUSTON (AP) - The latest departure from the University of Houston basketball team apparently will be forward Tom Grant, who has told San Jacinto Junior College Coach Ronnie Arrow he will transfer to the school this fall.
Houston learned Monday that Tito Horford, a highly recruited star from Houston Marion High, could not play for the Cougars because of an illegal contact made by Houston assistant basketball coach Donnie Schverak.
A fifth-year Houston player, Benny Anders, is awaiting trial on a gun-possession charge following an on-campus incident earlier this year.
Grant, a 6-5, 195-pound forward from Houston Nimitz, passed only eight of the 24 freshman hours required to retain eligibility.

Wohl named Nets' coach
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)
— Dave Wohl isn’t looking to change the New Jersey Nets roster much now that he’s the head coach
— he just wants to change the team’s attitude.
Wohl was introduced as the Nets’ sixth coach in the past five years on Tuesday and made it immediately clear he has high expectations in his first head coaching job in the National Basketball Association.
“Our goal is not just to make the playoffs and our goal is not just to get to the second or third round of the playoffs," Wohl said. “Our goal is compete for an NBA title.”
