'AF lf beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so, too. is the aesthetic quality of a baseball game Looking at Tuesday night’s game from the win ner’s dugout. Texas Rangers manager Bobby Valentine called it a heck of a ballgame and one hell of a comeback ” Shifting through the debris of his club's 10-8 loss in the Detroit clubhouse Tigers manager Sparky Anderson called it "criminal, a circus " "In my 18 years of managing in the major leagues," Anderson continued, "that's the worst baseball game I've ever seen ” Both managers had evidence to back their claims. Valentine’s Rangers went into the fifth inning trailing 8-2 and rallied to win it on Larry Parrish’ 2-out, 3-run home run in the bottom of the eighth Along the way, Texas relievers Ron Meridith and Dale Mohorcic combined for 5 1-3 innings of scoreless relief with Mohorcic, 3-1, picking up the victory Anderson’s evaluation was flavored by the fact that hts club made five errors, giving the Rangers four unearned runs, and his bullpen couldn't hold an 8-2 lead Erie King, 2-3, served up the homer to Parrish. Adding to the circus atmosphere was a bench clearing scuffle In the fifth inning in which there was a lot of milling around but no punches thrown, and only one ejection, that of Rangers left fielder Pete Incavlglia "The fight is the players’ business." said Ander son. "I don’t ever get involved in that stuff ” Incavlglia and Detroit catcher Mike Heath wereMore baseballSee Page 12A the central figures in the scuffle that erupted while the Rangers were staging a 3-run rally to pull within 8-5 "He Heath tried to trip me as I was coming to the plate." said Incavigiia He (incavigiia > yelled Get out of my way’ as he crossed the plate," said Heath "I hollered back that I wasn't in his way and things broke loose No punches were really thrown." Parrish was on first base, having singled home Incavigiia. when the scuffle broke out. and he and veteran infielder Darrell Evans sort of wrestled around "Just a couple of old guys roiling around so we wouldn't get hurt," said Parrish, who has driven home 23 runs in his last 14 games "That way you get to play tomorrow " Two at-bats later, Parrish came to the plate with two outs and two runners on and worked King to a 3-0 count before hitting a drive that traveled an estimated 450 feet, one of the longest ever hit at Arlington Stadium It hit with enough impact to break a seat in the bleachers section "It went 450 feet, and that’s where it broke the seat,” said Valentine Bob Brower and Don Slaught also homered for the Rangers, and Alan Trammell and Darnell Coles connected for the Tigers, who saw a six-game winning streak snapped the hurdles and earl aa regional meet Unicorn Dann> Dorn a tactically brilliant 8oo at the regional meet to tape This is a mere gloss, some of the most memories of the year were some disappo -Unicorn Doak Hume Class 2A and 1600 beset with injuries anal pete at his peak ,e\ el -Unicorn sprinter B troubled with sore Knee* run at top speed ai thous an admirable job undi cumstances at district int gruesPirates 5, Astros 2 PITTSBURGH AP - All the Pittsburgh Pirates needed to beat the Houston Astros was Mike Diaz s long bali and Bobbv Bonilla s short hop Diaz hit one of the Pirates’ longest homers of the season and Bonilla s apparently routine ground bali scored what proved the winning run in the seventh inning as the Pirates defeated Houston "This was an excellent excellent win for us,” Diaz said "We had key hits in clutch situations W e did the little things you have to do to win ball games and it s important for us to keep doing those things if we're gonna be a winner Diaz’s long homer into the third tier of Three Rivers Stadium s left-field seats and Sid Bream s RBI single staked starter Brian Fisher to a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning — until the rains came After a one-hour 27-minute delay Pittsburgh Manager Jim Leyland replaced Fisher with rookie John Smiley Smiley, 3-1. lost the lead by allowing Glenn Davis solo homer in the sixth and another run in the seventh following Billy Hatcher s triple But he still wound up the winning pitcher Dave Meads, 3-1, the Astros third pitcher got into immediate trouble in the seventh when he hit Rafael Belliard with a pitch, pinch hitter Bill Almon singled and Barry Bonds walked Bonilla then grounded to second, but shortstop Dickie Thon dropped Bill Doran’s throw for an error allowing Belliard to score the go-ahead run Johnny Ray followed with a sacrifice fly Howe a question mark in Game 2 of Cup finals EDMONTON .Alberta \P The Philadelphia Flyers know who they need to win they just don t know if they can count on Howe "After the torture therapy I went through I don t want to miss it," injured All-Star detenseman Mark Howe said Tuesday as he prepared for tonight s flame 2 of the Stanley Cup final against the Edmonton Oilers Howe s injured knee continued to be a sore point for the Flyers along with the revelation that center Pelie Eklund had suffered a "mild charley horse However, according to Coach Mike Keenan, both will be available for tonight s game along with previously injured players Murray Craven Lindsay Carson and J J Daigneauit "The progress of our injured players from the last game has improved and we're expecting that two and possibly three of them are ready to play in terms of health," Keenan said Keenan said that actually everyone would be available with the exception of right wing Tim >ut an the ired shoulder Howe of name of th< tion bet'am* to the Five OUI''*- is !nr ifcgrM bunch and his situa af prominent concern i after he suffered a in his so-called charley horse left knee in Philadelphia s 4-2 loss in Game I Sundav night A trainer translated the injury into stret ohed muscles Howe was unable to practice either Monday or Tuesday and will test the sensitive knee for the first time in pre game warmups tonight at the Northlands Col lseum T expect Mark Howe to play,” Keenan said "He has a contusion and hasn t skated since (Sunday night But he is recovering from the injury " However if Howe can t play, Keenan said the Flyers "would have to make some adjustments You could never replace Mark Howe ” "We’ve gone 80 games making adjustments for injuries,” Keenan said "It’s a fact of life in Philadelphia ” ;
