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.

It won't say so in the record book, but as far as Bobby Witt is concerned, he pitched a perfect game in beating the Kansas City Royals Thursday at Oakland, 4-0. Witt (5-7) had a perfect game until Greg Gagne beat out an infield hit with one out in the sixth. Gagne grounded to first baseman Troy Neel, who threw to Witt covering the bag. Umpire Gary Cederstrom called Gagne safe on a close play, although TV replays appeared to show that Witt and the ball beat Gagne to the bag.

So much for planning. Shane Andrews hit his second grand slam of the season and drove in a career-high five runs Thursday, leading the Expos to their seventh consecutive victory, 8-4, over the Cincinnati Reds at Montreal. "This team was supposed to win with pitching and with its defense," Expo Manager Felipe Alou said. Instead, it has built a 3 1/2-game lead in the National League East by outscoring teams.

The Chicago Cubs are winning with pitching, and the leader of the staff is Jaime Navarro. Jaime Navarro? A year ago, he was 4-9 with Milwaukee and expendable. Now he's 5-0 with Chicago, the first Cub to win his first five decisions since Steve Stone in 1975. And the Cubs are alone in first in the National League Central Division after Navarro gave up three hits in 6 1/3 innings Friday night in a 5-1 victory over the Florida Marlins at Miami.

Marquis Grissom stopped a slump by going four for five with two runs batted in as the Montreal Expos streaked to their 19th victory in 21 games, defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3, on Tuesday night at Pittsburgh. The Expos (73-39) have lost only twice in three weeks and are 34 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history. "With everything so uncertain because of the strike, at least that's something," Expo Manager Felipe Alou said.

The Fullerton College baseball team got stomped Thursday--in more ways than one. First, it got stomped on the scoreboard at Orange Coast College, where the Pirates ran up a 13-3 win in South Coast Conference play. Then there was Pirate pitcher Mark Stomp, who improved his record to 4-0. Stomp kept the Fullerton bats in check for most of the game, getting roughed up only in the seventh inning when he came close to being pulled. He recorded 10 strikeouts in his four-hitter.

Ruben Gonzalez was beginning to wonder if he'd ever get a pitch to hit again. For the past month, the feared Santa Ana College cleanup hitter had seen a lot of high pitches, low pitches, outside pitches and inside pitches, but precious few strikes. However, Saturday afternoon, Gonzalez came to the plate twice when he couldn't be pitched around--and both times he came through with home runs.

The second-place Orioles stayed four games behind Toronto in the East. With one out in the 14th, Scarsone entered the game.
