Mets edge
Astros, Scott
by 2-1 margin
NEW YORK (AP) — Keith Hei -
I nandez continued his career success
against Mike Scott with a home run
[and RBI single, and Sid Fernandez
pitched seven scoreless innings,
leading the New York Mets past the
| Houston Astros 2-1 Wednesday
The Mets ended a three-game los-
lingstreak by pinning Scott, the 1986
National League Cy Young winner,
Iwitli his first loss in four decisions.
IScott was the Most Valuable Player
[in last year’s NL playoffs when he
[beat the Mets twice and allowed just
lone run in 18 innings.
Hernandez, with a .393 lifetime
[average against Scott, connected for
[his sixth career homer against the
[Houston right-hander. No other
[batter has more than three home
[runs against Scott.
Fernandez, 4-0, became the Nl.’s
[first four-game winner. He left for a
pinch hitter after giving up five hits
[in seven innings, striking out eight
land walking two. He gave up singles
liothe first two Houston batters and,
laftera 1:42 rain delay in the bottom
lof the first, never allowed more than
lone runner on base in the same in-
Doug Sisk pitched the eighth and
nesseOrosco came for his sixth save.
Ellis happy with job
of starter with Sonics
From the Associated Press
Dale Ellis doesn’t want to go
back to Dallas.
Considering he spent three un
happy years there as a bench
warmer with the Mavericks, the
feeling is understandable. But the
Seattle guard has another reason,
If the SuperSonics beat the
Mavericks tonight in Seattle, Ellis
and his teammates will win their
best-of-five playoff series 3-1 and
avoid a fifth and deciding game
in Dallas.
“There’s still one more game to
go,” Ellis said after scoring a ca
reer-high 43 points in Seattle’s
117-107 victory over the Maver
icks Tuesday night. “I just want to
send those guys home.”
The Houston Rockets can also
wrap up their series against Port
land with a victory tonight in
Houston. The Rockets lead the
series, 2-1.
On Wednesday night, Milwau
kee defeated Philadelphia 121-
120 to take a 2-1 lead in the se
ries; Detroit edged Washington
97-96 to wrap up their series; and
Indiana downed Atlanta 96-87 to
bring the series to a 2-1 count; the
Los Angeles Lakers are at
Denver; and Utah is at Golden
The winner of the Milwaukee-
Philadelphia series will play Bos
ton, which swept Chicago 3-0 in
their opening-round series.
Ellis, who was traded to Seattle
in July for A1 Wood, has come
back to haunt the Mavericks with
75 points in the first two games of
their playoff series.
“I don’t think (Dallas Coach)
Dick Motta really knew what he
had in me,” he said. “He never
really turned me loose to prove
what I can do.”
Ellis averaged 8.2 points in his
three season with Dallas. As a
starter with Seattle this season, he
tripled that average to 24.9,
eighth best in the NBA.
Although they lost all five of
their regular-season games with
Dallas, the SuperSonics are confi
dent they can win the playoff se
“I’ve taken somewhat of a role
in convincing the team that we’re
as good as they are,” Ellis said.
“Dallas is the only team that out
played us during the regular sea
son. All we wanted to do is get
them in a close game.”
Motta thinks the Mavericks will
rebound from two straight losses
to the SuperSonics.

j WACO (AP) — It seemed like a
formal fall at the time. Little did
fexas-El Paso forward Gary
Irewster realize his basketball career
tad, for all intents and purposes,
[nded that night against Arizona a
[ecade ago.
That didn’t keep the Buffalo
(raves from selecting Brewster with
Stir first pick in the 1976 NBA
[raft at the very moment Vie was un-
[ergoing a back operation.
Brewster never played a minute
urBuffalo, and he bounced around
jro leagues in Italy, Austria and
Jexico for seven years, trying to
ephis lifelong dream of a basket-
11 career alive. A bad back never
[thim realize that dream,
j “It was tragic,” says Baylor basket-
coach Gene Iba, who was an as-
Stant at UTEP at the time. “He is
simply the best basketball player I’ve
ever coached and the best defensive
player I’ve ever seen.”
Brewster now is a paint contractor
living in Midland. He was inducted
last week into the Texas High School
Hall of Fame at Waco.
“I thought it was friends pulling a
prank on me when I got the call tell
ing me about the selection,”
Brewster said. “This erases some of
the pain I’ve gone through over the
years. This lets me forget a little bit
about the days I couldn’t bend down
and touch my toes.”
The 6-toot-9 Brewster averaged
24.1 points in leading Midland to the
high school state tournament his se
nior year in 1972. Midland lost to
San Antonio Roosevelt when future
Texas Tech star Rick Bullock hit two
free throws in the final 10 seconds.
Brewster signed with Texas-El
Paso and then made his mark as a
defensive whiz. In one game,
Brewster guarded Lhah guard
Tickey Burden. Burden was averag
ing almost 30 points, but he got only
four against Brewster. In a game
against Southwestern Louisiana’s Bo
Lamar, he held Lamar to one shot.
“Coach (Don) Haskins always told
me to grab the hot dog,” said
Brewster. “I enjoyed guarding big
name people like (SMU’s) Ira Ter
rell or Burden and shutting them
down. I enjoyed defense.”
Boston Celtics general manager
Red Auerbach called Brewster “the
finest defensive player I’ve ever
seen.” In 25 games his senior season,
Brevyster shut out the man he xvas
guarding eight times.
