The Cincinnati Reds acquired baseball's best all-around player Thursday without having to break up a team that won 96 games or break their small-market bank. With the Reds and Seattle Mariners having already agreed on the players to be traded, Ken Griffey Jr. made it happen by making good on his pledge to accept an under-valued contract if the Mariners accommodated his desire to join his hometown Reds. Griffey, a member of baseball's All-Century team at 30, agreed to a nine-year, $116.

UCLA's Jake Meyer walked four in a row in the 12th inning Saturday, forcing in Mike Lopez-Coa's go-ahead run and setting up a 7-3 Miami victory in the second-longest game in College World Series history. The only game longer than Saturday's 4-hour 42-minute marathon was a 5-hour game between Arizona State and Oklahoma State in 1981. Meyer pitched only one inning as the Bruins went through six pitchers in the game.

Lou Piniella looks at the standings. First place. He looks at the stands. Full house. The Mariners manager smiles. Seattle is surviving--thriving, even--without Ken Griffey Jr. "It's still early, but it's a good pattern we've developed here," Piniella said. "What it is, basically, is a formula to win." No such luck in Cincinnati. A month into their first season with Griffey, the Reds look like the junior varsity.

It was one of those moments that Kevin Costner makes baseball movies about--two out, game on the line, bases loaded and the best player in the game stepping up to the plate. Ken Griffey Jr. and his new Cincinnati Red teammates couldn't have asked for a better situation as spoilers in the Dodgers' home opener Friday afternoon. "That's a nice sight, but all of us have got to contribute," Red Manager Jack McKeon said in the visitors' clubhouse after the game.

After years of yearning to be noticed, Jim Parque is finding the limelight a bit startling. As a 5-foot-3 Crescenta Valley High pitcher, he was in everybody's shadow. But as he has grown into a 5-10 UCLA junior with a 90-mph fastball, Parque's stature has increased proportionately. He made the U.S. Olympic team last summer and is rated the 17th-best professional prospect among college players by Baseball America.

"Kramer! . . . "Are you gonna whine or are you gonna hit?" Mike Kramer heard the piercing voice of Pepperdine Coach Frank Sanchez and abruptly stopped arguing with the umpire, who had just called strike two. It was time to provide an answer. Kramer hit the next pitch from UCLA closer Jake Meyer on a line into right field to score Josh Oder and cap a three-run rally in the ninth inning that gave the Waves an 8-7 nonconference victory Tuesday at Pepperdine.

Lilli Weiner wants someday to marry what her friends refer to as "a nice Jewish boy." "They're very hard to find around here," says Weiner, 15, of Newport Beach. "It's rare. There aren't a lot around and you have to meet a nice, intelligent one." This week she's improving her chances by participating in an event drawing about 2,100 Jewish teens to Orange County from several continents.

One day after popping up with two out in the bottom of the ninth and the game on the line, Adam Kennedy found himself in nearly an identical situation. No popup this time, simply pop. Kennedy hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run ninth that enabled Cal State Northridge to salvage a 9-9 tie against UCLA on Wednesday in a nonconference game called because of darkness.

What transpired Saturday for UCLA in its first College World Series appearance since 1969 was a slow crawl to defeat. UCLA simply let Miami walk away with a 7-3 victory in 12 innings at Rosenblatt Stadium--the second-longest game in College World Series history. The 4-hour, 42-minute game was 18 minutes shy of the Arizona State-Oklahoma State game in 1981.

No one has even tried to sort out the probable contenders from the likely also-rans in the Metro Conference. Everyone's still confused as to who's coaching where. Carl Parrick, long a fixture at Southwest, decided to move across town to Bonita Vista last spring. Alan Kaylor took Parrick's old job, but in doing so he also created another vacancy. Kaylor had been the coach at Mar Vista for one year. Gary Pugh, an assistant at Southwestern College, also interviewed for the job at Southwest.
