With Outdoors News After a sixmonth hiatus The Outdoors column here at the Aiken Standard is back The reason behind its discontiuation is simple without your help the column is nothing I dont always have the time or resources to load up the truck and head to the woods or lake or wherever In fact those times are few and far between Especially when youre still trying to master the perfect golf swing or follow your basketball team in the playoffs I tried this once before and for a short time it worked But as the case with all things it some times loses it appeal and you quickly discard it like a used shotgun shell But if youre an outdoorsman whether it be a hunter fisherman biker or hiker ecologist or environmentalist let me hear from you Nothing Like Free Publicity If youre a member of a fishing hunting biking or hiking club let me know Tell of your meetings your plans for the future and any upcoming events If for nothing else let me know because theres nothing like free publicity I get plenty of things in the mail about people doing this or that in all these wonderful but far away places Im not concerned with people icefishing in Alaska or trout fishing in the Snake River or climbing Mount Rainer That is unlesss its someone from this area Ill try and keep you up to date with changing laws and the newest products on the market if I think they would interest you but I wont know that unless I hear from you I know some fisherman are particular about their secrets about what bait they use or where on the lake they fish And I promise I wont tell all of your secrets Just let me know what youre catch ing or for that matter what youre shooting or sighting Ask me to do things with your organizations Take me hunting and fishing or backpacking or whatever you do in the outdoors Im not the type of person that can easily rattle off tips of how to do this or that Id much rather write about you and the things you do Its far more interesting than anything I can

and Bob Walk continued to frus trate the Atlanta Braves in Pitts burgh pitching onerun ball over seven innings and adding an im portant double in the Pirates 41 win last night Once again the twotime

was nearly unhittable for five in nings and scored the Braves only run with a bit of baserunning trick ery but Atlanta didnt manage a hit over the final five innings That was a good lesson to a young team like ours not to get too down early in a game Walk said We could have just hung our heads and said Were not going to get to this guy tonight because Maddux was outstanding The Pirates had been shut out for 14 consecutive innings by Maddux the 1992 NL Cy Young Award winner for Chicago until the sixth Walk batting 167 doubled down the leftfield line for his second ex trabase hit in two seasons Jay Bell singled with one out and after Andy Van Slyke struck out looking King doubled to left on a 22 pitch I had two outs I was one pitch away from getting out of the in ning Maddux said I got the toughest out when I got Van Slyke And I threw a bad pitch to King Thats what irritates me When the games on the line you have to get those outs Theres no rule that says you cant win 10 King who sat out the Pirates 32 loss to Atlanta on Tuesday with the flu was 3for4 with an RBI single in the eighth and now has two homers a double and seven RBIs in his last two starts I couldnt have felt much worse than I did King said I was weak and my head hurt and they finally sent me home But I felt pretty good when I got here today and my name was on the lineup card Im been trying to get comfortable and carry something over from one game to the next and I hope this carries over The Braves only run came on an unusual play in the third Maddux singled advanced on a grounder and tried to score on Jeff Blausers single The throw easily beat Mad dux to the plate but he hurdled catcher Don Slaught to avoid being tagged then faked out Slaught to tag the plate after running well out of the baseline It looked like hockey hes on a breakaway and hes trying to fake out the goaltender Walk said I had nowhere to go I wasnt ready to run him over and I wasnt ready to slide Maddux said At first I thought Ill just walk away Please See PIRATES Page 10A High Stepping Staff Photo By Ginny Southworth TIGHT QUARTERS Michelobs Tom Biddle Sr left prepares to hit the ball while Ashwells Paul Rizzo

personnel are available from 6 amnoon and 711 pm during the week and 5 pmn p m on Saturday By The Associated Press CHARLOTTE Alonzo Mourn ing says he is just grateful for the chance to play basketball and Charlotte is even more grateful that he got his chance with the Hornets Mourning Charlottes No 1 draft pick last June returned the biggest div idend in Hornet history Wednesday night when his jumper from the top of the key with 04 seconds left ruined a fourth quarter Boston comeback and gave the Charlotte Hornets a 104 103 win over the Celtics It moved the Hornets into the second round of the playoffs I dont think anything can com pare to this said Mourning when asked if he could remember a big ger moment in his career The only thing that compares to this is me getting the chance just to play the game of basketball Me being blessed with this body this mind and these talents After losing the first game of the bestof5 scries the Hornets came back to win the next three in their firstever playoff appearance The dramatic loss marked the end of Kevin McHales 13year ca reer One of three remaining play ers from the Celtics championship teams of the 1980s McHale was re duced to a reserve role in his 71 games this year McHale finished with 19 points and six rebounds Mourning and several Hornet players hugged him once the game ended and it was some ending Mourning who scored 33 points and made 15 of 18 free throws took an inbounds pass from Dell Curry dribbled once squared up and swished a shot from behind the col lege 3point line setting off a mid court celebration The play was designed to go to Dell but we couldnt get it in bounds Mourning said So I just spread it out took one dribble squared up and took the shot For tunately the ball fell through the hole I call it a lucky shot But not the last shot There was just enough time remained on the clock to give Boston one last chance From midcourt McHale tossed an alleyoop pass toward Dee Brown but Browns shot glanced off the side of the rim It was definitely there Boston Boxscore Hornets 104103 BOSTON 103 ABdelnany 14002 Gamble 66 00 14 Parish 1116 22 24 Brown 27 11 5 Douglas 412 36 11 McHalo 814 34 19 McDaniel
