Graf fights off injury
to win Family Circle

(AP) - Steffi Graf overcame an in-
jury and a determined Arantxa
Sanchez Vicario to win her fourth
Family Circle Cup title Sunday.
The top-seeded Graf outlasted
No. 2 Sanchez Vicario 7-6 (10-8), 6-
1 after falling behind 5-3 and sus-
taining a slightly sprained ligament
in her left knee.
Remarkably, the 23-year-old
German powered through Sanchez
Vicario after getting her knee
wrapped for support between sets
following a lengthy tiebreaker.
"It's clay courts. That's what
saved me. I could slide towards the
ball, but I really couldn't twist very
much," said Graf, who said she
sustained the injury trailing 6-5 in
the opening set. "I just kept the ball
in play somehow. I got going a little
bit more and went for my shots a lit-
tle bit more."
Graf, who only entered last
AP PHOTOweekend after Monica Seles dropped
out, earned $150,000 for the victory.
to She became the all-time leading
money-winner in the 21-year history

of the event with $316,575 in six ap-
pearances. Graf's other titles came in
1986, 1987 and 1989.
Graf, ranked second in the world,
was actually more effective after
having the knee worked on. She cut
down on her errors, from 23 in the
first set to 6 the rest of the way. She
was far more patient on each point,
too, allowing Sanchez Vicario to 0
force the play.
"I didn't make as many mis-
takes," Graf said.-"In the second set,
she got a bit impatient, she made a
lot of errors and I played a lot
Kathleen Stroia, head trainer for
the WTA, said Graf's injury would
be reassessed in a couple of days but
expected her to be ready for her next
tournament, in Hamburg, Germany,
beginning April 26.
The usually steady Sanchez
Vicario, who won the final nine
games to defeat Jennifer Capriati in
the semifinals, broke down several
times in the second set as Graf won
her 71st career singles title.

Steffi Graf beat Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario in straight sets, 7-6, 6-1, 1
capture the Family Circle Cup in Hilton Head, S.C. this weekend.

Detroit drops sprng finale, 4-3


Erik Hanson completed an outstand-
ing spring turnaround for the Seattle
Mariners by pitching seven shutout
innings in a 4-3 victory over the De-
troit Tigers on Sunday.
After a 1-10 start, the Mariners
finished with a 16-14 spring training
record by winning their last eight.
The Tigers were 8-22-1 this spring.
Hanson, trying to regain the form
that helped him win 18 games in
1990, improved his spring record to
3-1 by allowing only two singles in
his seven innings. He struck out 11
and walked one in lowering his ERA
from 2.57 to 1.93.
"I'll tell you what, if he pitches
like that during the season he's go-
ing to win a lot of games," Mariners
manager Lou Piniella said.
Hanson, a 17-game loser last sea-
son, said he had all three of his
pitches working - a fastball, curve-
ball and changeup.
"When all three are working, it
builds confidence," he said.
Hanson, a 27-year-old right-han-

der, is scheduled to be Seattle's No.
3 starter and will make his first regu-
lar-season start Friday night in the
Kingdome against Baltimore. Randy
Johnson and Chris Bosio will pitch
Seattle's first two games.
The Mariners took a 3-0 lead in
the second inning off Tigers starter
John Doherty (0-4). Bill Haselman
and Rich Amaral had RBI singles
and Haselman scored on a Travis
Fryman error.
Seattle went ahead 4-0 in the
third on Jay Buhner's sacrifice fly.
The Tigers made it interesting in the

ninth after Dan Gladden's RBI sin-
gle off rookie reliever Dave Wain-
house in the eighth made it 4-1.
Rookie reliever Mike Hampton
loaded the bases on a single by Fry-
man and walks to Cecil Fielder and
Kirk Gibson. Chad Kreuter had an
RBI single and Scott Livingston had
an RBI on a fielder's choice ground-
Piniella brought in Rich DeLucia
to get Milt Cuyler to fly out for the
final out. DeLucia got his first save
of the spring.

Tigers open 1993 season
tonight against Oakland


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - With
a later than usual starting time and
Mike Moore on the mound, opening
day.at Oakland Coliseum is likely to
stretch late into Monday night.
Moore will take the mound in his
debut for the Detroit Tigers against
his old team, the Athletics.
The left-hander spent four sea-
sons in Oakland, leading the A's in
victories last year with a 17-12 mark
and 4.12 ERA in 1992. Moore then

Pro Sports


jumped to Detroit, signing a three-
year, $10 million deal.
Oakland manager Tony La Russa
said just because the A's are familiar
with Moore and he with them
doesn't mean either team will have
an edge.
"We're facing a real good
pitcher," he said. "One thing I like
about him is he has a lot of ways to
beat you."
Since Moore's departure, Bob
Welch has emerged as the A's No. 1
starter and will face his former
Welch hasn't been stellar this
spring but is definitely healthier than
last season, when he opened the sea-
son on the disabled list with a variety
of injuries and wound up making a
career-low 20 appearances.
For the past five years, Dave
Stewart has been on the mound to
start the season for the Athletics and
was 4-0 during that span.
In another reminder of A's sea-
sons past, Carney Lansford will
throw out the first pitch sometime
around 8:05 p.m. PDT. The A's third
baseman for 10 seasons, he retired at 0
the end of last season.
