It all started innocently enough. The Cincinnati Reds' leadoff hitter, Mariano Duncan, walked and stole second base. Luis Quinones bunted and beat it out. "I played for one run and I got 14," Manager Pete Rose said. The Reds scored 14 runs on 16 hits, all in the first inning, and went on to beat the Houston Astros, 18-2, Thursday at Cincinnati. The 16 hits set a modern major league record for one inning.

Free-agent pitcher Jim Clancy, an original member of the Toronto Blue Jays, re-signed with the team Tuesday, two days before a deadline that would have prevented him from joining the club until May 1. Clancy, who has pitched for Toronto since its inception in 1977, agreed to a two-year contract that will pay him $850,000 in the first year and $900,000 in 1988. The new deal represents a raise for Clancy, who signed a four-year, $3-million deal in 1983. Last season, Clancy went 14-14 with a 3.

The Chicago Cubs have been expecting great things from Mike Harkey ever since they selected him out of Cal State Fullerton in the first round of the 1987 amateur draft. Harkey lived up to expectations Thursday when the rookie right-hander took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against the San Diego Padres in the Cubs' 3-1 victory at San Diego. Phil Stephenson led off the bottom of the eighth with his first home run to end Harkey's bid to become the first Cub in 18 years to pitch a no-hitter.

If the San Diego Padres had played every team the way they played the Houston Astros, they'd be running away with the National League West. "Baseball is a funny game and nobody has mastered it yet. But some years you can just beat certain teams," San Diego's Ed Whitson said Tuesday night after pitching the Padres to an 8-1 victory over the Astros. The Padres wound up 14-4 against Houston, including the last eight in a row. It's the most games San Diego has won in a season against Houston.
