Along Jasmin Street in this capital's middle-class Villa Olimpica neighborhood, residents were packing up their belongings in trucks Sunday, hauling out furniture, clothing and keepsakes from damaged and unlivable apartments. Deep cracks and crooked balconies marred the 1960s-era three-story residential buildings along the quiet street, testament to the damage from the massive earthquake that struck Chile early Saturday, stunning the nation. "It's a lot to deal with, but at least we're all safe," said Carolina Jimenez, 32, a mother of two who was forced to flee her apartment as the quake struck, collapsing a wall and sending furniture flying, slightly injuring her 11-year-old daughter.

TEMPE, Ariz. - It didn't matter that Hector Santiago's four-inning, 42-pitch, one-hit, five-strikeout effort in Tempe Diablo Stadium on Friday came against a Chicago Cubs split squad of reserves and minor leaguers. It was still a significant step for an Angels left-hander who struggled with his command and pitch efficiency with the Chicago White Sox last season. "Last year, I was usually close to 40 pitches in the second inning," said Santiago, who was acquired in the three-team Mark Trumbo trade.

If Benito Santiago can extend his streak to the end of this season, to 36 games, it will officially carry over to 1988. According to Elias Sports Bureau, baseball's official statistical service, if Santiago passes Joe DiMaggio's 56-game record (by hitting in the first 21 games of 1988), it would be DiMaggio who would be stuck with the qualifying asterisk.

Vince Church doesn't particularly like playing tailback, but the Kennedy High School cornerback/linebacker has played the position since senior Ed Williams went out with a season-ending knee injury in the Garden Grove League opener. Church, a junior, liked it even less after his first-half fumble led to a Santiago touchdown.

Outlook Allen doesn't want the other teams in the league to be caught by surprise, so he's making one thing perfectly clear: "We are going to throw the ball," he said. "We are going to feature the passing game, no doubt about it." And well he should, since he's got a capable quarterback in three year starter Carrasco. His likely targets will be McGarrh, Scanlan--a Times' second-team all-county baseball player last season--and Bergin, who is being converted to tight end from offensive tackle.

Sonora forced five second-half turnovers en route to a 28-14 victory over Santiago at La Habra High School Friday night.

Sonora drove 75 yards on 13 plays in the game's first possession. Robert Knowles capped the drive with a three-yard touchdown run. Sonora's defense then held Santiago to three plays and Adam Chez scored on a 65-yard punt return.

Senior running back Bryan McGinley scored on a one-yard run with 1:17 to play as Garden Grove High School rallied for a 19-14 win over Santiago Friday night in a Garden Grove League game at Jayson Field. McGinley's burst up the middle capped a three-touchdown final period which boosted the Argonauts' record to 2-0, 2-5, while Santiago fell to 0-2, 1-6. Santiago led, 14-0, entering the final period but a pair of Argonaut touchdowns in a span of 2:26 pulled Garden Grove to within two points.

ATHLETICS 3, ANGELS 2 AT THE PLATE: Infielder Grant Green and outfielder Brennan Boesch, in a crowded battle for backup jobs, continued to hit well. Green doubled home one run and has three hits in four at-bats. Boesch had two hits Sunday and has started the exhibition season with four hits in seven at-bats. ON THE MOUND: Hector Santiago, making his Angels debut, gave up an unearned run and one hit in 2 2/3 innings. Santiago said he threw "six or seven" screwballs per game with the Chicago White Sox last season.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Hector Santiago does not have a personality that matches his signature pitch. A screwball, the new Angels left-hander isn't. Mature, hard-working, dependable, gregarious - these are among the adjectives that describe Santiago, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox in the three-team Mark Trumbo trade. The son of a flooring-and-carpet installer and hotel housekeeper, Santiago, 26, grew up in a blue-collar section of Newark, N.J., resisting the temptation of drugs and gangs by staying in school, playing ball in the afternoons and rising at 5 a.m. on the weekends to work with his father.

It was "Friday Night Lights" in Corona, high school football center stage. The joy of anticipation bubbled over. Teenage players couldn't wait. Parents and friends were in the stands. The communities that embrace Corona Santiago High and Upland High were bundled up and full-throated. This was a quarterfinal game in the Southern Section Inland Division playoffs. Winning meant advancing to another game, more joyful anticipation, more pats on the back and maybe even longer looks from college scouts.

Wonderment, anticipation . . . terror. Yeng Heu will not forget his first day in American high school. He had recently arrived in America from Laos, via France. He was told that the school he was to attend, Santiago, had a rather small student population. Because the school he attended in France was considered large with 300 students, Heu thought he knew what to expect. Santiago has an enrollment of 1,600 students. First shock. "They said it was going to be small," Heu said.
