It was a good-natured jab, but to Cal State Fullerton second baseman Steve Sisco, it hit home like a Mike Tyson hook. Sisco was in the Titan baseball office about a month ago when associate head coach George Horton, twiddling a pencil in his fingers, reminded Sisco of the rash of called third strikes being thrown by him. "You might as well hit with this," Horton joked, holding up the No. 2 lead. Sisco wasn't laughing. "Criticism like that makes you want to change things," the junior said.

This isn't exactly a garden spot. The wind whips in off the prairie in gritty gusts, and the temperature this time of the year exceeds 100. The humidity hovers and clings. Here, the locals are certain to tell California visitors, you can see "Twister" and save the $6.50. But this is home for two former Cal State Fullerton baseball players, Steve Sisco and Jeremy Carr. At least for a while. They're teammates on the Wichita Wranglers, the Kansas City Royals' double-A team.

Steve Sisco had four hits and drove in three runs and Jeremy Carr had a grand slam as Cal State Fullerton beat Hartford (Conn.), 24-4, in a nonconference baseball game Tuesday at Amerige Park in Fullerton. Tony Banks added a three-run home run in the first inning for Fullerton (17-6). Phil Nevin had two hits and two runs batted in for the Titans.

He's still a kid, the youngest pitcher in the major leagues, and a Green Monster looms large over his shoulder. Jeff Suppan, 20, must come to terms with this Monster, the legendary left-field wall at Fenway Park in Boston. Suppan was thrust into the Red Sox starting rotation last week, into a pennant race and onto an unforgiving field. Two years ago he was pitching for Crespi High. Saturday he faced Kirby Puckett.

Steve Sisco was known as a power hitter at Thousand Oaks High, for which he hit nine home runs last season. Now a freshman second baseman at Moorpark College, Sisco's consistency has gained attention. He has a 20-game hitting streak and is batting .444 in Western State Conference play. Sisco kept his streak alive with a first-inning triple Wednesday and later singled in Moorpark's 5-1 victory over San Diego Mesa College in the first round of the Channel Coast baseball tournament at Moorpark.

For Moorpark College second baseman Steve Sisco, practice makes perfect. The Raiders had been taking extra batting practice last week and the hard work paid off Saturday as Sisco collected five hits, scored four runs and had drove in two runs to lead visiting Moorpark to a 16-11 Western State Conference upset of Valley. Valley (17-3-1, 5-2 in conference play) hardly expected a slugfest with starter Steve Slattery on the mound. Slattery entered the game with a 3-0 record, a 2.

Steve Sisco hit a two-run home run and Kris Kaelin provided a two-run triple as Moorpark College collected 17 hits en route to a 12-5 Western State Conference victory Tuesday at Glendale. Sisco's towering home run over the fence in left-center field tied the score, 5-5, in the fifth inning. The Raiders added three runs in the seventh on Don Smith's two-run single and Loyd Wood's run-scoring single. Moorpark (22-14, 11-8 in conference play) continued to pull away with four more runs in the ninth.

Steve Sisco did not plan to visit Rosenblatt Stadium again until he was playing professionally in the triple-A American Assn. Sisco, a senior second baseman for Cal State Fullerton, had played here in 1990 when the Titans won two games in the College World Series then lost their next two and were eliminated. When Fullerton did not receive a bid to the NCAA playoffs last season, Sisco thought his college career was over. After batting .

It seemed like such a frivolous endeavor to Steve Sisco, hopping on a snowmobile for a joy ride over the fields of Oregonia, Ohio. But the former Cal State Fullerton standout ended up in a ditch, covered with blood, his arm and back broken, his head woozy, and his professional baseball career--and, possibly, his life--in jeopardy. Certainly not Sisco, who learned a hard lesson last Dec. 26.
