It was one of those odd games that seem to spring forth from Wrigley Field like so much ivy on the outfield wall. Mike Williams of the Phillies, who hadn't won a game since last autumn, pitched seven solid innings for the win. Williams wasn't fazed by the 50-minute rain delay that began in the fifth inning, when he was one strike and one out from completing an official game. Gregg Jefferies appeared in the Phillies' lineup for the first time in two months, strafed the outfield with four hits and helped a run score by falling down.

There is, in all likelihood, not another liquor store in the United States that has on a single shelf baseball caps from the Texas Rangers and the Philadelphia Phillies, trophies from Little League batting titles and Punt, Pass & Kick competitions, and bottles of Jack Daniels and Southern Comfort. But, then, this is not an ordinary liquor store. This is a liquor store that sells, in addition to the hard stuff, hard- boiled eggs, pickles, baseball cards and T-shirts. There's also a back room that served for years as a place to take batting practice.

American players scoff at Japanese baseball, its strategy and traditions. But even the most devoted of them can't help but be impressed by the salaries there. Consider the case of Pete Incaviglia. The burly outfielder played so poorly last season that the Phillies failed to pick up his option and he didn't attract major interest from other clubs. So Incaviglia recently signed a one- year deal with the Chiba Lotte Marines. For nearly double his 1993 salary. Incaviglia, 30, who struck out 71 times in 244 at-bats last season while hitting .230 with 13 homers and 32 RBIs, will make close to $2 million for the Marines, according to a source in Japanese baseball.

If the Detroit Tigers want free-agent outfielder Pete Incaviglia, they can have him for $1.2 million. But the Tigers aren't exactly jumping at the offer. "The Tigers are Pete's first choice," Incaviglia's agent, Tony Attanasio, said. "I told the Tigers that if they called back soon, and offered $1.2 million for a one-year contract, it would be a done deal. " Interim general manager Joe McDonald acknowledged that the Tigers talked with Attanasio, but said a deal by Opening Day was unlikely.

General manager Lee Thomas has one less decision to make as he ponders who will play leftfield for the Phillies whenever play might resume. He can say sayonara to Pete Incaviglia, who has signed a one-year contract with the Chibe Lotte Lions in Japan. Incaviglia, who had 24 home runs and 89 RBI while being used primarily as a platoon player in 1993, talked openly about exploring opportunities in Japan after the players' strike wiped out the remainder of last season. Thomas, who is looking for a righthanded power hitter to play left, made it clear that he hadn't closed the door on any of the Phillies' free agents but that he would wait for baseball's uncertain labor situation to clear before making any firm offers.

A LOT OF YOUNGSTERS are taking the Phillies' success in stride. But it wasn't too long ago that there wasn't much to cheer about. Just 15 years ago, the Phils lost 95 games. That team's everyday lineup: Gregg Jefferies at first, Mickey Morandini at second, Kevin Stocker at shortstop , Todd Zeile at third, Benito Santiago catching, Pete Incaviglia in left, Ricky Otero in center, and Jim Eisenreich in right. Pitcher Curt Schilling had the most wins of any starter at 9-10. The others: Mike Williams (6-14)

It was hard to tell which hurt Pete Incaviglia more, his sprained left knee or his pride. Incaviglia twisted, turned and finally crashed awkwardly into the left- field wall Wednesday night in pursuit of Kevin Roberson's game-winning triple. He sprained his left knee on the play and, while initial reports were that he would miss three to five games, it appears that he can pinch-hit immediately and probably will be back in the field in a day or two. "I just got twisted around the wrong way and then fell into the wall," he said.

It has often been said that major- leaguers should spend time in the minors every year or so, just to remind them what real life is like. Pete Incaviglia, who signed a contract with the Phillies yesterday, got just such a reminder this year. Only he had to go a lot further than the South Atlantic League. Incaviglia went all the way to Japan, where he played for the Chiba Lotte Marines. "I didn't like it there," Incaviglia said. "It was a case where they dangled all that money in front of me and the strike looked like it was going to happen and it was hard to turn them down.

Take it from Pete Incaviglia: It's great to be an American and it's better to be playing baseball on American soil. In his second stint with the Phillies, Incaviglia has produced six home runs and 14 RBI in his first 71 at-bats and is now receiving a possibly extended shot in the cleanup spot. To hear him talk, he would have been satisfied with a job on the grounds crew. Incaviglia played last season in Japan, hitting .181 with the Chiba Lotte Marines. To some extent, he could handle underproducing.

It's sort of a dialogue in horsehide. Glenn Murray, the 25-year-old prospect, spoke up first with a couple of long home runs that got the serious attention of Phillies manager Jim Fregosi. Pete Incaviglia, the veteran slugger trying to win a job with his old club, has answered in kind. Incaviglia, 31, hit his fifth home run of the exhibition season yesterday to keep up his end of the most compelling competition in this training camp. He added a double and scored a run in the second of two games against Texas.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Maybe everyone is looking at this Darin Ruf outfield experiment all wrong. The lifelong first baseman is trying to play left field to improve his chances of making the major-league roster. Ruf has looked a bit rough out there, no doubt about it. He misplayed a routine base hit into a three-base gift on Thursday. On Friday, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel penciled him into the lineup as a designated hitter, just to get Ruf some at-bats without the distraction of playing the field.

NASHVILLE - Twenty years have passed since Lee Thomas pulled off one of the greatest roster overhauls in Phillies history. With a shoestring budget and a barren farm system, Thomas made six offseason additions - four free-agent signings and two trades - that helped trigger the Phillies' transformation from a last-place team in 1992 to National League champions in 1993. It started with a November expansion-draft trade for lefthander Danny Jackson that sent Joel Adamson and Matt Whisenant to the Florida Marlins, and concluded with a mid-January free-agent signing of outfielder Jim Eisenreich for $675,000.

Al Leiter made a big mistake. Not the 3-2 fastball that Pete Incaviglia hit out of Joe Robbie Stadium - that was just a bad pitch. Leiter made his mistake four innings earlier, after he'd struck out Incaviglia. "He showed me up," Incaviglia said. "He did his little act there, and I felt like he showed me up. I've been in this game for 10, 11 years now. I was taught early on that you show a little respect for guys who have paid the price and been around a while. "A guy shows you up like that, it gets you excited.

It's not just the numbers that add up to trouble for Tony Longmire. The letters spell out his predicament. The letters in question are L and S. On the blackboard in manager Jim Fregosi's office, they appear in parentheses next to the names of lefthanders and switch hitters. There are eight outfielders in this Phillies camp. Four of their names are accompanied by Ls: Darren Daulton, Lenny Dykstra, Jim Eisenreich and Longmire. Two have an S: Mark Whiten and Lee Tinsley. That leaves Pete Incaviglia and Glenn Murray as the only righthanded-hitting outfielders.
