New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 13, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Houston finds the way to beat San See below Thursday Special June 6 So Mando Graduation brings back memories Armando Martinez DERYL By DAVID KING Sports editor So Its been a good three Armando the oldest 16yearold kid I ever finally graduated from New Braunfels High School this And I have to Ill miss It wasnt just the way he could overpower teams with his fastball that made him fun to It wasnt just his consistent It wasnt just the fact that he was such a good baseball Mando was a pleasure to watch because he did it all with that that that was all his That style began to develop when he was a pitching in relief on a playoff It had blossomed by the time I started covering baseball in the second round of the playoffs in his sophomore The game that stands out from that season was the clinching game of the regional finals on a saunabath Friday night in Fifteen hundred fans most of them from Robstown were all but sitting in the dugouts with the The Unicorns were clinging to a lead late in the Starter Bobby another was So Coach Peter Garza went to who had won Tuesday nights With the Robstown fans trying to blow down the Martinez struck out the last two batters to end the And it was that little that shrug of the A week the grin was but the shrug was still What else could he do after a flu bug ruined his chances in the state semifinals The next year was a as the Unicorns tried to regain that championship form without several of the players who had supplied the championship New Braunfels was in the race until the nexttolast game of the district a home game with Martinez was ready to pitch that but the umpires didnt He wasnt ready to pitch three days later and the Billies ace who wouldnt have been able to pitch if the umpires has showed up and New Braunfels was out of the Next He came back this year and pitched going 124 and leading a lighthitting New Braunfels team to the Of his four one was to 5A playoff He threw like a 25yearold man from the time he was 16 years Being the baby in a family of pitchers does He was playing with older guys from the time he could wear a And he wound up playing Jjke and Pressure didnt the com petition didnt He went he threw his And he team two were to state finalist Canyon and one was to EdcouchElsa in a 10 playoff In one of his best performances of the he closed out his career by striking out 15 Canyon hitters to win game 2 of the bestofthree quarterfinal And that style showed through all The way he would set up hitters with the then buzz in that inside fastball for a called The way he would get batters attention a little bit wild inside when they tried to crowd the plate or break his rhythm or hit the ball too far or too The way he could get on a roll and strike out the side on 10 or 11 He threw like a 25yearold man from the time he was 16 years Being the baby in a family of pitchers does He was playing with older guys from the time he could wear a And he wound up playing like them and Pressure didnt the competition didnt He went he threw his And he He was the same way at the hitting with Unlike most high school he stood off the plate and took the ball to right In Spring Woods was doing a Boy Scout job on the Unicorns in the finals of the New Braunfels tying the hitters in New Braunfels didnt have a hit through 6 23 But Martinez came up and crushed a Nobody throws a nohitter in this park but me he And nobody did it quite like Astos beat Padres for second time Angels Witt beats Texas again By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS With the winning run on first base and one out in the seventh Houstons Phil Garner was eager to step to the plate in the pressure I think most guys like those said Its really exciting when both teams are playing well and you are able to come through for your Garner got the entire team excited with his gamewinning triple to the gap in rightfield that scored Terry Puhl to rally the Astros to a 32 victory and a 21 advantage in the series with the defending National League The Astros lost 12 of 18 games against the Padres last and they were eager to reverse the trend this Nolan Ryan struck out
