Randy Wolf, masterful in two City championship games at Dodger Stadium, showed Thursday night he has Busch Stadium conquered, too. He pitched four hitless innings, striking out five and allowing only one baserunner in his Olympic Festival debut. Unfortunately for the West team, Wolf didn't pitch until the sixth inning. By that time, the North already had all the runs it needed to post a 4-2 victory. Wolf, from El Camino Real High, issued one walk, and a disputed one at that.
