The Angels were rebuffed in their attempts to trade for Colorado infielder Jason Bates and Chicago Cubs infielder Jose Hernandez, so they probably will come up with their own replacement for the injured Randy Velarde. "In my mind, we're going to have to find someone here to fill in," Manager Terry Collins said after the Angels' 15-0 exhibition victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday.

After three games with the double-A Reading (Pa.) Phillies this season, Steve Scarsone wasn't sure if he was using the right bat--or club. The way he was seeing the ball, he might have been more effective with a 5-iron or pitching wedge. "I thought they were throwing golf balls," said Scarsone, a 1984 Canyon High School graduate who played two seasons at Rancho Santiago College. "Everything they threw was strikes. I was taking the good ones and swinging at the bad ones."

You can't get much more content than Steve Scarsone. He relaxed in front of his locker in the San Francisco Giant clubhouse before a game last week, smiling, laughing, trading barbs with teammates. He's aware of the moment and his part in it. A reserve infielder for the team with the best record in baseball. A role player who's happy to be just that. A player who Manager Dusty Baker describes as "one of our saviors." No, Scarsone is not going to miss a second. He has waited too long.

Hi Lavalle, who coached Compton Dominguez and Anaheim Canyon to Southern Section baseball championships in his 35 years as a head coach, died Wednesday of complications from stomach cancer at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange. Lavalle, 75, coached at Dominguez from 1958-72 and at Canyon from 1973-92, recording a 453-331-17 record.

Santa Ana College right fielder Doug Maher threw out Sean Watts at home with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday to preserve the Dons' 9-8 South Coast Conference victory at Mission Viejo. Saddleback trailed, 9-6, entering the final inning but scored two runs on Jim Devine's double. Watts came on to pinch-run for Devine and attempted to score on Dante Scott's pinch-single, but Maher came up with a perfect throw to the plate to cut him down.

Second baseman Roberto Mejia on Saturday became the eighth St. Louis Cardinal to go on the disabled list, a day after he strained his right groin. General Manager Walt Jocketty said the injury wasn't serious enough to keep Mejia sidelined for 15 days, but the Cardinals had to do so because they are running short of available players. Mejia had been playing for injured Delino DeShields when he hurt himself trying to get out of the way of a throw by shortstop Royce Clayton Friday.

Pete Harnisch, who left the New York Mets this month under puzzling circumstances, is being treated for depression and is not sure when he will return to the team. "I've been diagnosed with depression," the pitcher said Friday in his first public comment on his condition. "It's being treated medicinally and with therapy." Harnisch, who started on opening day for the Mets, said doctors told him that his problem was caused by a chemical imbalance.
