Utah takes 2-1
lead on Rockets
By RACHAEL A. LUTZ
HOUSTON (AP)—Kart Malone is not satisfied with the way he played and neither is Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich.
Malone expected more, Tomjanovich hoped for less Wednesday night after Malone scored 32 points, 21 in the second half, and got 19 rebounds in leading Utah to a 95-82 victory and a 2-1 lead in their first-round playoff series.
The victory left the Rockets, defending NBA champions, one loss from being eliminated from the playoffs.
‘I made some baskets, but I didn’t go a good job bf reading," Malone said. ‘I didn't change anything for this game. I slept the same and I ate the same. It's just about adjusting and we were able to do that tonight."
The Jazz lost to the Rockets in last season's Western Conference finals, but they could move to the second round with a victory in The Summit on Friday night A fifth game, if necessary, would be in Salt Lake Qty on Sunday.
'They are capable of coming back, and winning two in a row," Malone said. "We have to concentrate on coming back and continuing to play our t game.
£ "For the most part, we didn't press and didn't get out of character. We just did the things that we know we can do."
Although Malone thought the Jazz got the victory by doing what they usually do, Tomjanovich said the Rockets were lacking their usual enthu-

"I thought they had more energy than we did," Tomjanovich said. "A team that's backed into a comer is going to be tough and now we're backed into the comer. Our fire overall — sustained 48 minutes of battle-in-the-pit mentality —just isn’t there."
John Stockton had ll points and 13 assists for Utah and Jeff Homacek and David Benoit added 14 points each, with Benoit pulling down IO rebounds.
Hakeem Olajuwon led the Rockets with 30 points and IO rebounds and Kenny Smith, after a slow start, scored 20 points and was a key figure in a second-half charge.
"I think their defense had a lot to do with our 41 percent shooting,” Tomjanovich said. “But sometimes the balls just don't go in the basket.”
Game 4 will be played at Houston on Friday at 8:30 p.m.

CHICAGO (AP)—When a starting pitcher and five relievers combine to throw 188 pitches, you know the team’s in trouble.
'That's a lot of pitches," Cubs catcher Rick Wilkins said after the Houston Astros rocked Chicago 11-2 Wednesday. "And Houston did things right. They hit the strikes and took the balls.”
Actually, the Astros hit just about whatever they wanted to in completing a two-game sweep.
They had 14 hits, including homers by Luis Gonzalez, Craig Shipley and Craig Biggio, who was hitting .095.
“We came here and we were not swinging the bats well, but we got going.
This is the kind of place where some of our guys like to hit,” Houston manager Terry Collins said.
Gonzalez homered in the third off starter and loser Steve Trachsel (0-1) to start the scoring. Biggio’s three-run homer made it 4-0 in the fifth.
■ ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Seattle Mariners are the hottest club in the American League West and the Texas Rangers are glad they don't have to see them again until July.
Not since 1985 have the Mariners
started a season 6-1. Seattle also has won 12 of its last 13 games against Texas.
They swept a three-game series with the Rangers Wednesday night, taking a 5-1 victory as Chris Bosio scattered four hits and Edgar Martinez delivered a two-nin double.
Seattle matched the franchise’s best record after seven games by the 1984 and 1985 teams and won its eighth straight game at The Ballpark in Arlington.
"We’ve got some switch-hitting, some speed and versatility,” Seattle manager Lou Piniella said. “We have a nice mix of young players and veter
The Mariners hit Texas with four runs in the first inning.
■ DALLAS (AP) — The last time coach Bob Gainey’s Stars were seeded eighth in the Western Conference playoffs, they reached the Stanley Cup finals.
Four years later, Dallas will try doing it again.
Despite losing their last four regular-season games, the Stars backed into the postseason with the final seed thanks to Chicago’s 5-1 victory over Los Angeles Wednesday night.
Dallas seemed headed for the seventh
spot until San Jose rallied and tied Vancouver 3-3 later Wednesday.
The Sharks (19-25-4) and Stars (17-23-8) each had 42 points, but San Jose got the No. 7 spot because it had more wins than Dallas.
Having the lower seed means the Stars must face top-seeded Detroit beginning Sunday. The Red Wings won all five meetings this season and had the best record in the NHL this season at 33-11-4.
■ ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers’ players and management donated $40,000 Wednesday night to the relief efforts in the Okla
Rangers fall15-3 to hotMariners
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Seattle Mariners are leaving a not-too-subtle message with the Texas Rangers in the early going of the American League West race.
The Mariners beat the Rangers for the seventh straight time at The Ballpark at Arlington and defeated Texas for the 13th time in 14 games with a 15-3 rout Tuesday night.
Tino Martinez broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run single that triggered an eight-run eighth-inning rally and Jay Buhner and Joey Cora each drove in three runs to push the Mariners to 5-1, their best start since 1985.
“I’m very pleased,” manager Lou Piniella said. “The kids are playing hard. We like what we’ve been doing early."
Seattle has dominated Texas since the start of last season, outscoring the Rangers 110-50.
“It’s a big opportunity for us,” said Seattle’s Ken Griffey Jr., who had a single and four walks. ‘Playing our division early, it’s a chance to put some distance between us and the teams we have to beat.”
Cora and pinch-hitter Doug Strange had two-nin singles in a five-run ninth as the Mariners refused to let up.
“It’s contagious,” Piniella said. “All of a sudden, a lot of positive things started happening for us. We’re playing as hard as we can and we feel good about how we’ve started.”
Jeff Nelson (1-0) pitched two-thirds of an inning in the seventh to pick up the victory, coming on with one out and the bases loaded and not giving up a hit.The Rangers are 2-11 in their last 13 games dating to last season.

The Rangers players and coaches made a $17,500 donation to Feed The Children, an international, nonprofit disaster-relief organization. Outfielder Juan Gonzalez donated $5,000 to the cause.
Larry Jones, president and founder of the organization, accepted the donation from Will Clark, Mickey Tettle-ton and Gonzalez.
The Rangers management donated another $ 17,500 to the Salvation Army. Maj. Marshall Gesner, area commander for the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area, accepted the donation from Rangers president Tom Schieffer.
