New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 10, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Page 10 Sports New Texas May 1991 Playoff veterans meet in bestofthree series New Braunfels Raoul Romero beats out an infield hit as Seguin pitcher Matt covering first drops the throw from the first baseman in last weeks districtending The Unicorns host MacArthur tonight in the first game of a bestofthree Photo by Erik Karlsson Probable New Braunfals Grant or Lorenzo Jeremy Greg Joe Raoul Brian Jason Kyle Isabel Wes Grant James 1991 pitching ByTOMLABINSKI Editor Two teams with a rich baseball tradition square off in a bestofthree bidistrict playoff scries beginning tonight when New Braunfels host San Antonio Mac which enters todays Game 1 with a 1931 has made the playoffs in four of the last six years and was a state finalist in Whether this years team can match that success is the big question said Brahma Coach Paul Its hard to compare this years team with that The 87 team was a solid ball but also one that played better and better once they got into the he Led by an offense which has scored 178 MacArthur began this sea son in torrid and was ranked as high as 2 in the But the hits started to turn to and the Brahmas began to rely more heavily on their pitchers and their defense to win We started off the year scoring a lot of runs and hitting the ball but that has sort of tapered Lindy Now were not getting as many bul we arc gciting timely Despite its minioffensive MacArthur stil has only two players in the batting order hitting less than Theres a lot of balance through out the and thats really Lindy Were not a oneman team or a twoman but we do have two or three guys in the lineup who could carry us in any given ball Junior right fielder Mario Gallegos leads the Brahma attack with a batting Sophomore second baseman Marc a has driven in a teamhigh 29 Lindy said defense was a key for MacArthur in going undefeated in the second round of District 265A The Brahmas turned 21 double plays over the tying district runner up Judson for the most of any team in the San Antonio But perhaps the biggest reason for MacArthurs success has been the pitching tandem of Adrian Mendoza and Jeremy who will be the starting pitcher for tonights has the areas best record of 101 with an ERA of The senior has pitched seven complete Adrian has been the big surprise for us this Hes pitched very Lindy who was 74 and alldistrict year as a is 92 this year with a Adrian and Jeremy complement each other real Both are very Theyre both good fast ball Lindy Mendozas counterpart on the mound tonight will be Lorenzo who is 45 on the season but has won three of his last four I thought hed be the logical one on Friday Well throw him first and Grant Hodges can be in relief if said New Braun fels Coach Peter Hodges 73 on the year will start Game which will be played at 2 Saturday at Blossom Field in San Game if will begin 30 minutes after the con clusion of the second Both coaches have indicated their Brian Martinez for New Braunfels and Dave Page for MacAr would be the starting pitchers for Game The Unicorns making their fourth consecutive playoff appearance clinched second place in District 255A only after East Central lost its finale in San but feel they are up to the task of challenging MacAr said I think its going to be a competi tive I really feel were as equal as they When it conies down to the I think everybody is pretty much he The Garza may be in keeping the cooledoff Brahma bat ters from regaining their The one thing we need is for them not to get hot because some of their players have been in kind of a Theyre all good ball and some of them have been hitting well lately and then some have dropped They have three or four who have really been hitting the but we cant afford to let them all get and theyre all capable of he New Braunfels must also hope its bottom half of the batting order can get on While the team has six batters hitting above and twoat or two starters are hitting below The Unicorns have spent the last week concentrating on defensive along with some offen sive work on base stealing Were trying to get everybody Theres really not that much new that you can Its just a matter of the guys keeping their timing as far as hitting and getting them Garza Tickets for tonights and Saturdays possible are for adults and for Smelser Fairchild
