The JetHawks played Wednesday night without shortstop Mike Lanza, who was sick with dehydration. Second baseman Jason Cook started at shortstop, his college position. Cook also has started at third base and in left field. "Cook's a pretty solid shortstop," Manager Dave Brundage said. "There's not a lot of difference between Lanza and Cook defensively." Lanza might play tonight.

As debuts go, Jason Cook's was first-rate, and so are his memories of it. Cook, a Calabasas resident who played No. 2 singles for UCLA's national runner-up men's tennis team, defeated Doug Root, 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (4-7), 7-6 (14-12), in his professional debut June 15 in the Chandler Cup at California. He survived seven match points against Root, an amateur who plays No. 1 singles for Duke and has a year of eligibility remaining. "That was something, and pretty memorable," Cook said.

By the time Jason Cook turns professional after the UCLA men's tennis season ends next month, he will have left behind some big shoes for his little brother to fill. But so far, they have been a good fit for Lester Cook IV. While Jason is playing No. 2 singles as a senior for UCLA, the top-ranked Division I team in the nation, Lester, who will turn 15 on Saturday, has been following in his older brother's footsteps as a standout on the junior tennis circuit.

Almost as sudden as his apparent overnight prowess on a tennis court, Jason Cook seems to have developed a double personality. The only question before today's start of the United States Tennis Assn. Junior National championships is which Jason Cook will show up. The Cook who quickly transformed himself into a powerful yet deft and, most important, confident player who compiled a 25-1 record on the junior circuit the first half of 1995?

It is lonely at the top, but Jason Cook apparently wanted to remain lonely Thursday after he was knocked off the top of the mountain. The Woodland Hills resident, seeded No. 1 in the boys' 18-and-under division, was upset in the second round of the Southern California Junior Sectional tournament by David White of Rancho Santa Fe.

Nobody could have convinced Jason Cook that he'd become a UCLA Bruin after his bitter loss last spring to UCLA's Heath Montgomery in the NCAA Regional finals. But it happened. Cook, who lost in three sets to Montgomery--the outcome decided on a penalty point--has transferred to UCLA from New Mexico. "UCLA's a great school," Cook said. "They're No. 1 or 2 in the nation and they can do a lot for me. There's a lot of pluses."

The big hits came early and often for the JetHawks in a 15-7 victory over the Bakersfield Blaze at Sam Lynn Ballpark, giving the JetHawks eight victories in 10 games against the Blaze.

Jason Cook, Clifford and Villalobos each had three hits.

It's safe to say the JetHawks won't miss Fiscalini Field when the San Bernardino Stampede moves into a new ballpark across town next month. The lumpy infield--oh, and Chad Townsend--combined to beat the JetHawks, 6-4, on Saturday night before 3,052 fans, sending them to their fourth straight defeat. The game was tied in the bottom of the eighth when Adrian Beltre hit a hard grounder toward third baseman Carlos Villalobos.
