In times of crisis, some people turn to God. Some visit therapists. Juan Uribe leaned on his late cousin. Or, as Uribe prefers to call him, his uncle. Not long before Uribe, 31, parlayed his World Series heroics of last fall into a three-year, $21-million deal with the Dodgers, he was dangerously close to adding himself to the long list of baseball's premature washouts. Two springs ago, Uribe was in the San Francisco Giants' camp on a minor league contract. "The toughest time of my career," he said.

A judge ruled today during a pretrial hearing that there was insufficient evidence to take San Francisco Giants shortstop Jose Uribe to trial on a rape charge.

Not only was the crowd a season-low, but only three umpires showed up, which also was a season-low. The Padres were not offended. In front of just 8,888 in San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, they defeated the San Francisco Giants 7-4 on Wednesday, and it was one of those rare nights when every player in the lineup earned his paycheck. THE BIG SPRINT--This came in the first inning after Garry Templeton reached first on Bob Brenly's error.

A jury will begin deliberations today in the drug trafficking trial of Jose Becerra Uribe, a former Coachella city manager accused of attempting to swap world-famous paintings supposedly belonging to Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton for 110 pounds of cocaine. In closing arguments Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Atty. Gregory W. Jessner urged jurors to find Uribe guilty, saying prosecutors had presented "mountains of evidence" during the trial to show the defendant was a "sophisticated drug trafficker."

The San Francisco Giants do not have Rob Thompson and Jose Uribe in the lineup because of their prowess with the bat. The Giants are convinced the youngsters will develop into an outstanding second-base combination. Anything they do at the plate is a big plus. The two infielders each had three hits and drove in two runs Saturday at San Francisco to lead the Giants to a 12-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Having worked so much overtime lately that they might want to lodge a complaint with their union, the Dodgers wearily ventured into extra innings against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday night. Only this time, the Dodgers had breakdowns in quality control and deviated from their winning pattern as they ended this generally successful 16-day, 14-game trip.
