Chris Gomez picked a good time to break his June swoon. The Tigers rookie shortstop ended a 1-for-17 slump with three hits and four RBI, and Detroit used a 10-run fifth inning to beat the visiting Boston Red Sox, 14-5, yesterday. "Yes, I've been struggling and I didn't really hit the ball all that well today," said Gomez, who had five homers and 26 RBI in May. "I got jammed on one of my hits and the double in the fifth kicked up some chalk. " Gomez, slightly bothered by a jammed right thumb, went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles and a two-run double.

Because it would result in huge fines and suspensions, the Phillies probably won't use last night's turning point as a blueprint for the future. Pitcher Larry McWilliams, manager Nick Leyva and third-base coach Larry Bowa were ejected in the fourth inning of the second game of a doubleheader with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Veterans Stadium. Thus inspired, the Phils erupted for five quick runs that carried them to a 6-1 victory and gave them a split of the doubleheader. The big blow was a gargantuan three-run homer by rookie Charlie Hayes.

Maybe now the "What's wrong with Roger?" questions will stop - at least for a while. Roger Clemens quieted critics with one of his best performances since early last season, allowing three hits in eight innings as the Boston Red Sox defeated the visiting Chicago White Sox, 5-3, last night. "When a guy pitches like that, you can't do anything but tip your hat," said Chicago's Frank Thomas, who homered in the seventh for the only run off Clemens. "The last couple of times we faced him (last year)

The bases were filled with players wearing red-and-white uniforms. There were two outs in the fourth inning and the Phillies trailed San Diego, 3-1. Who walked to the plate in that key spot in yesterday's game? Terry Mulholland, with his career .078 average and a hitting philosophy that will never be mistaken for that of Ted Williams. "I'm just up there with a wooden thing in my hand, trying to hit a leather thing past guys wearing other leather things on their hands," Mulholland explained.

CONGRATULATIONS to Bucks County native Greg Harris , who was just named the next chief executive officer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland. Harris, 47, a Temple graduate, has been the hall's vice president of development since 1998 and takes over for longtime CEO Terry Stewart on Jan. 1. Philly record collectors may remember Harris as a co-founder and former owner of Philadelphia Record Exchange (618 S. 5th). Harris previously worked for 14 years at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., where he started out curating its library and broadcast collection, and ended up the vice president of development.

In 1986, Greg Harris saved 20 games for the Texas Rangers. At the end of the next season, he was not offered a contract. Last year Harris was, by several yardsticks, the Phillies' most effective pitcher. Last night, he was given his outright release. Here he goes again. "I'm not really surprised," Harris said after the announcement was made. "I asked for a chance and I got it. For a while. "Now I'm not getting enough work, so this is probably the best thing.

There is an unwritten rule in baseball that says you shouldn't rush minor league players. The feeling is they need to mature like fine wine before they're ready to pop onto the big league scene. But sometimes you have to pluck a player before his time. Such was the case with the San Diego Padres when they promoted pitcher Andy Benes from Triple A Las Vegas 15 days ago. The Padres needed pitching, so they took a chance. So far, they've lost. Granted, Benes was the team's No. 1 draft pick last year, but at the time he was brought up he had a 2-1 record in five starts and a less-than- spectacular 8.10 earned run average.

The Montreal Expos, who open a three-game Phils homestand tonight, seem to have struck gold with their acquisition of pitcher Pascual Perez. It wasn't a new idea, giving a look to a guy who used to be good but had fallen out of the game. Teams do it all the time - you might notice Bill Dawley and Greg Harris in the Phillies' bullpen. But it usually doesn't work as well as it has for the Expos and Perez. Perez is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA this season, including a 5-2 victory over the Phillies last Sunday that extended the Phils' losing streak to seven games.

It wasn't easy. It wasn't pretty. And it was looooong, and seemed longer than the actual running time of 3 hours, 49 minutes on a wet, cold night at Shea Stadium. What, the Phillies complain? After seven consecutive losses, they were only too happy to accept their 10-7 win over the New York Mets last night. If one loony play on this strange night summed it all up, it came in the eighth when Mike Schmidt led off with a walk. David Cone, the Mets' fourth pitcher, then bounced a wild pitch past catcher Gary Carter.

Andy Ashby comes back to Philadelphia again this weekend, and for the first time in his professional career it means nothing. No vendettas, no pacing the hotel room the night before Sunday's scheduled start as if it were the seventh game of the World Series. In other words, no more acting like a kid. "It's always fun to come back to some place that you've played, but San Diego is my home now," said the 27-year-old Padres pitcher, who was once among the Phillies' most-touted prospects.

Remember all the laughs John Kruk generated with that All-Star Game strikeout? He wasn't nearly as funny yesterday. This was Kruk without the yuk. Three seventh-inning misplays by the unhappy Phillies first baseman permitted the Padres to break free of a 2-2 tie with a pair of unearned runs as Philadelphia began its second half with a disheartening 5-2 loss to the Penniless Padres. In the subsequent innings, a scowling Kruk slumped near first base. He hung his head, kicked at the dirt, occasionally screamed at himself.

Curt Schilling had a bad cold. John Kruk was still sidelined with a pulled left hamstring, so Ricky Jordan started at first base for the second straight game. The Padres loaded the bases with nobody out against Mitch Williams in the bottom of the ninth. Schilling didn't allow a run until the eighth. Jordan had three more hits and made two terrific fielding plays. Williams got out of the jam allowing only one run. And the Phillies improved their best-in-the-majors record to 15-5 with a 5-3 win over the Padres at Jack Murphy Stadium.

Ricky Jordan walks in John Kruk's shadow - which, depending on the sun's angle, can occasionally accommodate a small parade. Jordan professes to be comfortable there. Don't believe it. He wants badly to play every day. And, frankly, the first baseman is making a powerful case for himself. Starting a second consecutive game for the hobbling Kruk, Jordan singled twice, doubled, drove in two runs and played excellent defense as the Phillies opened this brief West Coast journey with a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres last night.

Hey, can you believe this? Five wins in a row, for the first time since May 1. A 7-2 record since the all-star break. A two-hit shutout by Bruce Ruffin, who appeared to be left for dead at the start of the season. It's all happening out here on the left coast. Last night, amid boos and catcalls hurled at the local heroes, the Phils muzzled the Padres, 4-0, with the aid of some late-inning lightning. And suddenly, the Big Maroon Machine, with all its parts finally repaired and oiled, is putting on an awesome show.
