Sports editor After losing their first district game to the Smithson Valley Rangerettes were waiting for their chance to even the Tuesday they got We went out and had them 12 2 for forever in that first said SV coach Louise We had rotated three but on the Tonya Hartman stepped behind the line and won Taking the match in two 1614 the Rangerettes had an added in centive to said It had already become a grudge match because of the way they Southside had acted when we went down there that first But when we went out onto the court and saw that Stomp the Valley girls TOTALLY the girls decided then and there that they would The loss dropped Southside from the district title race which is now a threeway tie between Cole and Smithson Randolph went into the tie by defeating Cole 10 last Each team has a 42 The first game was a lot closer than the score Davidson They bring back everything you hit at them it may not be over the but it comes I think I was more afraid they would catch up than in the second Call it coachs but I knew wed win that second The Cardinals had taken the lead on their second rotation and were up 114 in the second game when Smithson Valleys Julie Cappel stepped up and served nine straight During that the Southside coach called two time outs in an attempt to break Cappels concentration and Julies really con Davidson Its hard to break her once she gets Shes like Tonya in that And Hartman was also on her game last She Hartman said at one that she felt like an animal or something because she was killing the ball on the The girls said she had fire in her eyes when ever she went whatever it Southside couldnt return Theyd just sit there and watch while Tonya With Hartman spiking and Darlene Garrison and Kathleen Murphy playing the front row the Rangerettes killed the Cardinal SV took a 1413 lead and Dawn Davis served for the Junior varsity Southside had neither a junior varsity or a freshman New Braunfels The New Braunfels Unicorns lost to Lockhart Tuesday night 15 with what coach Claudia Perry called flat First of all we went there with a confident attitude and as it turns it was We started slugish and flat in the first game and never If a nemesis were to be named for our defense last it would have to be that they Lockhart had very unor thodox hitting Instead of going up with shoulders squared to the net they go up It makes it hard to read where the ball is going to I talked with the players and were going to try and regroup We can still absorb one more loss and remain in second The Unicorns fall to 32 in district behind Kerrville Tivy who is Brewers shut out Cards in Game 1 of World Series LOUIS AP The Milwaukee Brewers can play Whitey The American League champion Brewers charged into the World Series with an image of sluggers who thrive on the long as evidenced by 216 home runs in the regular on the other got here on speed and a bunch of singles hitters assembled by Manager Whitey Herzog and conditioned to zip around the bases at breakneck So in Tuesday nights the Brewers put together 13 three short of the World Series in a 17hit attack and rode the threehit pitching of Mike Caldwell to a lopsided 100 Herzog called it an back of the Im glad it only counted as one he Im glad we didnt have a The jackrabbits at the top of the Brewer batting order drove the Cardinals to Leadoff man Paul Molitor set a World Series record with five all Three were infield hits and driving in a key came when he shattered his bat and looped the ball beyond the Its the first time Ive had three infield Molitor They werent very 2 man Robin Yount had four three of them Molitor and Yount drove in two runs apiece as Milwaukee punished four Louis I just hit the ball where the fielders explained Hows that for Whitey Ball Just to make sure their longball image wasnt the Brewers also had a towering home run by exCardinal Ted Simmons and a tworun triple by Its nice to score 10 said but we still didnt swing the bat as well as were capable The Cardinals know we can hit the long What Louis might not have was the kind of performance Caldwell had in his 33year old Ml arnr Shelled in his last two he was passed over by Manager Harvey Kuenn Jn the decisive fifth game of the American League But he came back with an workmanlike game against the I was getting ahead of the throwing mostly sinkers and a backdoor Caldwell I felt strong and when I got three ground balls in the first I got a lot of personal the Brewers knew early that the veteran lefthander was on his I could tell right he There was no question in the first He was throwing the sinker at threequarter speed and we were getting the ground I said to This could be nice for a It turned out to be nice all night Caldwell surrendered a double to Darrell Porter in the second a walk to Tommy Herr in the singles to Porter and Ken Oberkfell in the and nothing He retired 17 of the first 18 batters he faced and threw firstpitch strikes to 22 of the 31 Cardinal including 10 in a row at one He retired 14 hitters on ground Thats as good as he can said Youre not going to see him any Caldwell was breezing through the Louis batting He occasionally has been ac cused of doctoring but there were no complaints from the He kept the ball where he wanted it and he had good motion on his offspeed said Gene who was the Cards designated hitter He kept the ball down on me and when a pitcher can do hes tough to If he throws a it doesnt matter to If he gets it over more power to Ozzie Smith What can you do about a spitter he Hit the dry side The Cardinals werent hitting any In the Milwaukee wrapped up the rout with four more two of them on Gantners triple and the final one on Molitors recordbreaking fifth SVs Kathleen Murphy digs for the ball while Julie Cappel looks
