Getting back into the Cal State Fullerton lineup was not Rich Gonzales' top priority Sunday. Getting out of bed was. Gonzales, who suffered a sprained neck after smashing headfirst into the outfield fence during the Titans' 14-4, College World Series loss to Oklahoma State Saturday, got about one hour of sleep Saturday night. Every time he tried to roll over in bed, pain would shoot through his neck and shoulders and wake him up.

Paul Gonzales throws verbal combinations at the latest Grim Reaper, making believe it is 1984 again and he is the one and only Kid Barrio. Retirement? No way. Never. "What, you crazy?" Stick and move. It is a Thursday afternoon at the Hollenbeck Youth Center in East Los Angeles and, if one is willing to ignore the obvious, turning back the clock is not difficult. Same musty gym. Same crusty trainer, Al Stankie. Same fighter, Paul Gonzales. The Cop and the Kid. They were going to make a movie.

The catcher from Georgia Southern puts some aluminum siding to the baseball, really pings it, and his drive bounces off the billboard behind the center field fence, some 400 feet behind home plate. A home run? Not here. Not at the College World Series.

The only consolation for Oregon State's Rich Gonzales is that things can't possibly ever be as bad again as they were on Saturday afternoon. Never again will he be a freshman quarterback making his first collegiate start in front of more than 50,000 mostly unfriendly fans and a USC team intent on erasing the humiliation of consecutive defeats.

Bob Hamlin of Rancho Santiago College finished off the Riverside Tournament in the same manner in which he began it--with a hot bat.

The game was called after 6 1/2 innings, when San Bernardino ran out of pitchers. Rancho Santiago (12-0) had 17 hits and scored in every inning, including eight times in the sixth.
