For the Ray Krawczyks of the world, there is often just one chance. And then, if you succeed, you'll get plenty of opportunities to fail. Krawczyk is 28, a right-handed pitcher with 165 days of major league service. The Angels signed him as a minor league free agent three days before Christmas. Back in Mesa, Ariz., where there were lots of new kids on the block, Krawczyk was the newest. "We're going to take the 10 best pitchers out of camp," pitching coach Marcel Lachemann said.

Chili and Cookie and Peaches and Griffin, Alfredo are on the Dodger Stadium menu tonight when the Angels and the Dodgers open the 18th Freeway Series at 7:05 p.m. The Angels, with a new manager, Cookie Rojas, and a new right fielder, Chili Davis, will also have a new pitcher on the mound--Dan Petry. Peaches, as he was known in Detroit, is bidding to become the club's No. 3 starter, but a back injury and three straight exhibition shellings have left him with spring numbers of 0-3 and an 11.

The undefeated Toronto Blue Jays scored six runs with the help of three errors in the 10th inning to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-2, Sunday at Clearwater, Fla., for their ninth-straight victory. Philadelphia second baseman Juan Samuel booted Ron Sharperson's grounder with one out in the 10th and Fred Manrique singled to put runners on first and third. After Manrique advanced on a wild pitch, Rance Mulliniks grounded to Samuel, who threw wildly at home plate to break the tie.

Cookie Rojas should have gotten all the facts before he signed that contract to manage the Angels. "They told me this was God's country," Rojas said Thursday afternoon. "It rains in Los Angeles?" Yes, it does, sometimes hard enough to postpone baseball games. It happened Thursday, washing out the Angels' series finale with the Chicago White Sox at Anaheim Stadium after Kirk McCaskill threw seven pitches to Chicago leadoff batter Lance Johnson.

Wally Joyner couldn't wait. He was in Dodger Stadium for all of 15 minutes before he ran out to left field to give a special gift to a special friend and former teammate. Joyner, hiding a gouged and scraped baseball laden with half a jar of Vaseline, jogged up to Don Sutton, patted him on the shoulder and then plopped the gooey ball into Sutton's hand. Sutton managed a smile. After all, this is not exactly a new joke.

So much for that baby winning streak the Angels had going. Rather than resist like any self-respecting infant--kicking and screaming the whole way--the Angels returned quietly to last place in the AL West Tuesday evening as if they were late for feeding and a nap. Blame Cleveland Indian starter Scott Bailes. First he stuck a pacifier in the Angels' mouths and then a collar around their bats.

The Angels avoided their worst start since 1961 with a 6-4 victory over Oakland Sunday, but the game was more than the end to a three-game losing streak for Angel Manager Cookie Rojas. It was a confirmation of beliefs he refused to doubt, even as his team lost four of its first five games.

Keeping one's eye on the ball can be easier said than done, as evidenced by the third inning of the Angels' 8-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox Saturday, when 20/20 vision seemed to guarantee only a 50-50 chance of being correct. Was Boston's Marty Barrett really hit on the hand by Ray Krawczyk's fastball, as Barrett and plate umpire Don Denkinger contended? Or had the ball hit Barrett's bat, as Angel catcher Bob Boone contended? Or had it hit nothing at all, as Angel Manager Cookie Rojas contended?

If shopping is the intention, New York's the place--especially when your name's Mike Port and your baseball team is in sore need of a new look for summer. All the fashionable labels are here: Winfield, Mattingly, Henderson, Righetti. Even the wholesale stuff--numbers like Roberto Kelly, Al Leiter and Jay Buhner--can look enticing when your nose is pressed against the window and the pants pockets are pulled inside out.
