ARLINGTON, Texas -- The graying of the Texas Rangers' pitching staff continued yesterday with the signing of free-agent right-handed reliever Tom Henke.The Rangers gave Henke, who turns 35 Monday and considered retirement last spring because of a sore right shoulder, a two-year guaranteed contract with a club option on a third season. According to major-league officials, Henke is guaranteed about $8 million and could earn about $12 million if he lasts three seasons. Boston offered more money but a less desirable living situation.

APEX, N.C.-- --In a small North Carolina garage are Robert Henke's two remaining worldly possessions: a slightly banged-up 1967 Lotus Elan sports car and something that resembles a slim, 6-foot torpedo suspended from an aluminum frame. When he takes it out for the rare spin, the cherry-colored ragtop gets admiring looks from passers-by - though it is the metal cylinder that ought to grab the world's attention. But nobody cares. The product of more than $2 million and 25 years of development, the device might just be the holy grail of earthquake engineering: a probe that can accurately predict the way various soils will react in a major quake.

ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Nolan Henke matched the PGA's best 36-hole score of the season with a 12-under-par 130, making five consecutive birdies yesterday on the way to a 64 and a two-stroke lead in the B.C. Open.Henke's precision putting allowed him to overtake Jim Hallet, who shot his second straight 66 for a two-day total of 10-under-par 132."I wasn't hitting too bad in the beginning, but I was missing the putts left or right. I got a little stretch where they all dropped," Henke said after pulling away from a first-round tie with Hallet at the En-Joie Golf Course.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tom Henke, 36, might have thrown his last major-league pitch last night.The Texas Rangers reliever said he is contemplating retirement. He is going home to Missouri today fully expecting a strike."If we do go out, maybe I don't want to come back," he said. "I'm not real happy right now. I don't want to waste people's money. I don't want to waste the fans' enthusiasm by not pitching well."Henke's comments came a few minutes after he had served up a game-losing homer to Seattle's Mike Blowers in the Rangers' 3-2 defeat to the Mariners at The Ballpark in Arlington.

MINNEAPOLIS -- In baseball's never-ending accumulation of seemingly meaningless statistics, Tom Henke got credit for a "hold" yesterday.In other words he maintained the status quo in orderly fashion, which is much better than a "scare," when the basepaths get crowded, but home plate is not violated.This is a different role for Henke, one that could become common if Duane Ward continues to excel out of the Toronto bullpen. After missing most of the last month of the season because of tendinitis of the shoulder, Henke is being eased back into action by Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston.

CHASKA, Minn. -- It was, literally, the calm after the storm. When the rain stopped, when the winds quieted, when the commotion ended, Hazeltine National Golf Club relented.The course that had caused such a stir in its first U.S. Open appearance 21 years ago gave in last night to a number of players, most notably Nolan Henke and Payne Stewart.Both played most of yesterday's opening round following a rain delay of more than two hours and the death of one spectator. Each shot a brilliant 5-under-par 67 to share the lead in the 91st Open.

CHASKA, Minn. -- When play was halted yesterday afternoon at Hazeltine National Golf Club in the opening round of the 91st United States Open, Tom Byrum did not feel particularly enthusiastic about his game.He had finished the first four holes and was 1-over par. On top of that, Byrum thought he had let down a number of friends who had come from South Dakota to watch him play. But when he returned, more than two hours later, Byrum's perspective had changed dramatically.So did the way this Open would be remembered.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have the luxury of two premier short relievers, but that has put manager Cito Gaston in the difficult position of having to choose between them.Right-hander Tom Henke led the club with 32 saves during the regular season, but hard-throwing Duane Ward became the main man down the stretch after Henke came up with a sore shoulder.Now, Henke is feeling better, but Gaston used him in a set-up role in Wednesday's 5-2 victory in Game 2. Ward pitched the final two innings to get the save.

CHASKA, Minn. -- Davis Love III had, perhaps, the best perspective on yesterday's opening round of the U.S. Open at the Hazeltine National Golf Club."I wasn't quite as worried about my golf game after we came back from a delay," he said.He was referring to a thunderstorm, laced with lightning, that resulted in the death of one spectator and seriously injured another. Four other spectators were listed in stable condition.The tragedy occurred early in the afternoon as play was suspended for 2 hours and 41 minutes because of the hazardous weather conditions.

SEATTLE -- In the days of covered wagons, they had a word for it when an unsuspecting enemy was lured into Texas. They called it an ambush.Which is about what the Texas Rangers have been doing to their American League foes. The major difference is there are no surprises -- each opponent is well aware of the destructive power of the Rangers' lineup.That definitely includes the Orioles, who lost to the Rangers in the first two games of the season and face them again the next three nights.The Rangers will not keep up their current pace (averaging two home runs for the first five games)

TORONTO -- A few weeks ago, when he was leading the league in relief innings pitched, Mike Flanagan was asked if he was aware of his lofty standing."Yes, I am," said the Orioles lefthander who has found a new career in the bullpen, "because I know how much Duane Ward pays attention to those things. And I know Jimmy Key and Tom Henke are giving him the business -- asking him how he can be such a workhorse if an old guy like me has more innings."Ward smiled when the story was relayed to him last night, after the rugged righthander had pitched the last two innings of Toronto's 3-1 win over the Orioles.

CHASKA, Minn. -- The United States Golf Association tried mightily this year to make sure that Hazeltine did not play with the same ease that Medinah did last year for its Open championship.The rough was grown higher.The greens were shaved closer.The pins were tucked in the most treacherous positions.Maybe USGA officials should have worked their magic on the weather, somehow keeping the rain from again ruining this usually masochistic little four-day orgy of high scores and short fuses.For the field at the 91st Open championship, the only thing finer than Medinah is a former cow pasture called Hazeltine.

The 1991 season has been one disappointment after another for Baltimore Orioles right-hander Ben McDonald, who pitched well last night and still left the game with a pained expression on his face.Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer Tom Candiotti pitched better. He gave up one hit over eight innings and got hitless help from Tom Henke in the ninth to defeat the Orioles, 3-0, and complete a three-game sweep at Memorial Stadium.But that was not the only reason for McDonald's discomfort. He pitched eight strong innings, but fell victim to the steamy heat and left with a cramp in his right forearm.

AKRON, Ohio -- The first round provided a good surprise for Nolan Henke -- the lead in the NEC World Series of Golf.It was a bad surprise for Jodie Mudd -- a warning from a marshal on Mudd's backswing.It may not have been a surprise at all for John Daly, but it was ugly, ugly, ugly.Henke, making a major revision in his swing and not at all confident about how he would play, took four strokes off par with a 66 yesterday and established a two-shot lead in this winners-only tournament."I'm just really surprised I played well today," Henke said.
