Jeff King got the pitch he was expecting from Xavier Hernandez in the top of the ninth inning and responded with his second grand slam of the season. "He threw me three hard fastballs when I faced him before and he got them by me, so I thought he would try to get ahead of me with a fastball," King said after hitting Hernandez's first pitch into the leftfield stands to lead the Pittsburgh to an 8-6 victory over the Houston Astros last night. The victory is only the Pirates' third in their last 13 games and came after Houston hit five solo home runs to tie a club record.

It was an atypical game, one in which the prevailing cry from both teams was "hold onto your hat. " The wind was blowing, players' hats were flying, and the ball was jumping as Overbrook High became a launching pad when Burlington County rivals Moorestown and Holy Cross met in the opening round of the 37th annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. Holy Cross's potent offense has pulverized pitchers in a variety of ways this season, but Saturday, the Lancers used a new weapon: the grand slam.

Ryan Dempster crept through the Florida dugout, sneaked up behind Ryan McGuire and shoved a shaving cream pie into his face. That was Dempster's way of saying thanks. McGuire hit Florida's second pinch-hit grand slam this season, helping the Marlins beat the visiting New York Mets, 5-3, last night and giving Dempster his second straight victory. "With all the excitement in the dugout, you just knew we were going to bust out any minute," said Dempster (5-6), who allowed six hits and three runs, walked four and struck out eight in seven innings.

The aim of British amateur Julian Snow of London to achieve a Grand Slam in court tennis was shattered yesterday at the Racquet Club, where he was upset in the semifinal round of the U.S. Open Championship by Robert Fahey, an Australian pro, 4-6, 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-0. Fahey, a loser to Snow in the final of the French Open Championship, looked nothing like the ultimate winner yesterday as Snow dominated most of the match. But Fahey responded with an almost errorless performance in the fourth and fifth sets and outhit Snow in dynamic exchanges.

Now he's a candidate for the 1st District City Council seat held by Leland M. Beloff. As a Democrat?

They celebrated the Phanatic's birthday at Veterans Stadium yesterday. That may help to explain why an elephant was pawing at a stool about 20 feet from where the Phillies were doing their stretching exercises in foul territory before the game. "It used to be that you got to the ballpark early to watch batting practice and listen to the organ," said Phillies manager Nick Leyva, smiling, before yesterday's game. "Now, you listen to hard rock and watch an elephant try to go around in circles.
