Drops Nash in Babe Ruth Tourney Action From Staff Reports Wayne County came through the loser's bracket to beat Nash County twice and take the District 5 Babe Ruth 14-15 Tournament Champion- ship last week. In Game I, Wayne Co. held Nash Co. to seven hits en route to a 10-7 win, behind the pitching of Paul Parrish. In addition, Wayne Co. hit three home runs saddling Jeremy Ward with the loss. Ward lead Nash Co. at the plate, going 3-for-4 with an RBI and a double. Leading the way for Wayne Co. was Anthony Weeks at 2-for-4 with a homer, Randy Ridsby 2-for-4 with ahomer,Ray Grantham 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a double, Tico How- ard 2-for-3 with an RBI double and Kirby Southerland with a three run homer. In Game 2, Nash Co. jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first but slipped the rest of the way to lose 9- 4. Anthony High lead off with a single and Ward drew a walk. After Andy Jones popped up for the first out,, Kenny Wilson slashed an RBI single to left, scoring High and advancing Ward to third base. Ward then scored on a passed ball. Wayne Co. starter Ray Grantham then proceeded to walk three straight batters before retiring the side. Wayne Co. tied the game in the bottom of the third, but Nash Co. went ahead temporarily in the fourth on a solo home run from High. It capped the scoring for his team. Wayne Co. went on to add three runs in the bottom frame of the fourth and three more in the bottom of the fifth to put the game out of reach. Anthony Kozal got the relief win for Wayne Co. while Wilson took the loss. High paced Nash Co. with a 2- for-4 effort. Wayne Co. was lead by David Brown at 2-for-4, Ridsby at 2-for-4 with two RBIs and Southerland cracked a three run homer while going 2-for-3.

Proof of this is Chevrolet's Gee Tracker and Suzuki Sidekick, twins as they're built and sold under a joint agreement. Inside the new four-door high line JLX hardtop, Suzuki (the exact model tested) was attractive but not plush. It's equipped with extremely comfortable cloth-covered bucket seats, and there's plenty of room for even the brawniest off-reader. On the fold-down rear bench there's decent leg room, but don't plan on carrying adults with regularity. As this was the four-door model -- a distinctly different and much, much superior vehicle to the two-door in every way -- there's plenty of cargo space. Instrumentation was analog and sparse, but adequate. Nook and cranny storage areas were abundant, but a decent cupholder is missing. The Sidekick/Tracker was equipped with a smooth new 1.6 liter 95-HP fuel-injected "4" with four valves per cylinder, a vast improvement in torque and response over the original 80 HP wheezer. In this application, 0-60 takes 12.9 seconds, still not fast but adequate. Observed mileage was 20 city and 24 highway (EPA 24/26), better than the class average. The Sidekick was equipped with a three-speed transfer case offering four-wheel drive high-low and two-wheel drive high. New this year are automatic hubs; no longer do you have to get out and lock the wheels to engage four-wheel drive. Ground clearance on this $13,699 base price vehicle is 7.9 inches; A trip to a mud bog showed it handles off-reading well, but its forte lies in inclement weather use. It weighs just 2,700 pounds, and as such doesn't have the massive frame members of the hard-core Jeep off-readers. Turning to ride, the Sidekick's has been upgraded to "more than pleasant." You'll never have a complaint, despite this being a 4x4! Handling and ease of steering (power assist is standard) is acceptable. With a listed 35-foot turning circle, it should be nimble. It isn't, though: I measured near 38. Comers are taken fairly well with minimal lean, but remember, this is a Jeep-type vehicle. It has a high center of gravity and can't be judged like a sedan. Drive within reasonable limits. If you don't, remember, the aggrava- tion wasn't the vehicle's fault! The Sidekick's tires were all-season radials. They were surprisingly good, but nowhere near street types in wet or dry grip. The sound system was a good quality though low power Suzuki AM/FM with tape player. It wasn't cheap, though, and you can get a much better deal at an afterrnarket supplier. The heater in the test truck was excellent; the same can be said for the air conditioning, an $800-plus option. Overall, the hardtop (NOT the soft top or two-door models) four-door Sidekick/Tracker rates high as a light off-reader and inclement weather 4x4. Quality control throughout was excellent, so you can buy with confidence. Should you purchase the Suzuki or GM version? Make a decision based on whose dealer is nearest and offers the best financial terms. Compare warran- ties, too. There's considerable fine print to weigh. The Tracker/Sidekick JLX four-door hardtop for '92 is a vastly improved vehicle. It's a reasonable choice! 1992 by King Fcaturt', Synd. sponsored by IOUtLAS Want To Start Something?
