Rangers rally past Royals ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — When the Texas Rangers fell four runs behind the Kansas City Royals and pitcher Tom Gadon, their comeback odds seemed slim. But Texas found a way to rally as Mark McLemore ripped a two-run homer in the fourth inning and added an RBI single that keyed a six-run sixth in Texas' 10-4 victory Wednesday night. The Rangers used a 12-hit attack for their 10th come-from-behind victory of the season. Texas has scored 10 or more runs five times this year. “This team just doesn’t give up," Rangers first baseman Will Clark said. “It’s not one person. Everybody on this team contributes."

"It doesn't gel any more exciting than the All-Stars," said Beach, who has been involved with the competition since childhood. "The All-Stars players represent not only their team and age group, but the league and the city." The field in Seguin will have players from north District 31, including All— Stars from both leagues in New Braunfels, Lockhart, Luling, Canyon Lake, Seguin and San Marcos. The same games are set for little leaguers (12 year olds) across the country vying for a trip to the Williamsport, PA. "We're not unlike a lot of towns across the country," Beach said. "We'll have parents and fans packing the stands and lining up along the fences with lawn chairs to cheer on their kids." The All-Star selections for 12-year-old players will be announced June 17.

Incredible, unbelievable, amazing. They all seem to fall short to describe the Rockets* 120-1 IS overtime victory over Orlando iii Game I of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night It was perhaps the most astonishing chapter yet to this team’s improbable playoff run "What a great sport we have," Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. Hakeem Olajuwon, pushed around by Shaquille O’Neal much of the night, winning the scoring battle between them but lr sing the rebound fight big-time, won the game with a rebound. After trailing by 20 points iii the first half, alter being headed for certain defeat before Orlando’s Nick Anderson missed four free throws iii the final 10.5 seconds of regulation, the Rockets hold l-O lead in the series. “It’s been like this from the beginning of the playoffs, with us coming from behind." Olajuwon said Game glance HOUSTON (120) Elie 7-11 3-4 18, Horry 7-18 1-2 19, Olajuwon 13-26 5-7 31, Smith 8-13 0-0 23, Drexler 7-19 8-8 23, Brown 1-5 0-0 2, Cassell 1-3 1-2 4, Jones 0-1 0-00, Chilcutl 0-0 0-0 0.

This No. 6 seed from the West tied NBA playoff records with its sixth road victory in a row and eighth away from home overall in the postseason. And this one may have been the most unlikely of them all for the defending champions. "I felt they deserved to win tonight,” the Rockets’ Mario Elie admitted, "but we seem to be pulling the game, like a magician, out of the hat. I don’t know how we do it, but this team never quits." Olajuwon tipped in Clyde Drexler’s miss for the winning basket with three-tenths of a second left in overtime. O’Neal had gone out to try to block Drexler’s layup, the shot went high off the glass, and Olajuwon was there for only his sixth rebound of the game in the suddenly icy silence of the O-rena. "It was so quiet, I didn’t even know the basket was good," Olajuwon said. GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) — It’s been ll years since Kerry Wood and Kevin Walker won the Little League state championship playing with the Irving All-Stars. Grand Prairie’s dynamic pitching duo will have another shot to win state championship glory together when the University Interscholastic League tournament begins in Austin. The Grand Prairie Gophers (33-3-1), who have dazzled fans this season with phenomenal pitching and solid hitting, are trying to win their first UIL title. They’ll face Lubbock Coronado (274) in a Class 5A semifinal. The first semifinal match-up will feature Fort Bend Elkins (30-2) vs. Corpus Christi Moody (24-3-2) at 5 p.m. today. Wood, who posted a 14-0 pitching record this season and was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Cubs in last weeks’s amateur draft, said that any thing less than a championship victory will be a disappointment. “We’ve come this far. When we just go out there and play, no one can beat us,” Wood said. "It’s time to finish the story." Win or lose in Austin, Wood said he will probably forsake college plans and don a Cubs jersey next season. “Since I was five I’ve wanted lo play major league baseball," Wood said. “I’m probably not going to pass this chance up.” His buddy Walker, a relief pitcher, was drafted by the San Diego Padres but still isn’t sure whether he’ll-go pro. The Gophers have become a local sensation, drawing record crowds and droves of adoring Little League players seeking autographs. “They have really had to grow up a lot," said head coach Mike McGilvray as he signed a baseball for a fan after practice this week. Rockets need more Dream endings to offset Shaq’s bullying I    j    Don’t go penciling in the Houston Rockets as cham-rF    pions just yet. Beneath the surface of Wednesday’s I flpF    stunning outcome lurked an ugly monster called series I twne Tte referees set it, and m J they apparently are ready - to let Shaquille O’Neal get away with big-time bulldozing near the basket. It was forgivable the first time the large guy put Ins shoulder down and lunged elbow first into Hakeem Olajuwon, plowing the center to the Boor. It got comical the third and fourth time Shaq rammed his way to the goal, with only a hand-slap travel- Thomas Godley mg call. In any other league, he would have had five fouls al the hall. Not in the NBA, which promotes one-on-one celebrity matchups. Shaq on the bench does nothing for ratings. Facing that kind of handicap, the Rockets had no business stealing Game I in Orlando. The Magic, in all honesty, mustered as much as could be expected against the defending champions. They took a 20-point lead in the second half, and at times the new kids looked downright dominating and confident. The Shaq was holding his own against the Dream, and the Magic perimeter game was clicking. Guards Nick Anderson, Anfemee Hardaway and Brian Shaw looked way too comfortable bombing from beyond the arc. Heck, in the first half Horace Grant single-handedly controlled the Rockets. Even as Clyde Drexler was getting into a groove and Kenny Smith was unconsciously connecting on long-distance liners, a Rockets fan had to feel lucky to still be in it. Rudy Tomjanavich no doubt was counting his blessing when Nick “I Only Make Threes” Anderson missed four straight free throws. Rudy T. had to feel good too to see his team tied in overtime with five seconds left and the ball. The silence that overcame the frenzied crowd in Orlando told the story. It was so quiet that Olajuwon himself fig ured a foul was called and the shot didn’t count. The moment, for some strange reason, evoked llashbacks from eleven years ago when the University of Houston’s lost the NCAA championship to North Carolina State on a last-second shot. Maybe it was the way Olajuwon, who this time kept his eye on the ball, looked to the referees for assurance. The tip-in was good and the Rockets can thank their lucky stars for coming away with this one. They will, however, need plenty more prayers from here out in the series if Shaq continues to gel his battering ram licenced by the men in the striped shirts.

A liver donor was found late Wednesday and once tests showed it was compatible with the 63-year-old Hall of Fainer, surgery began around 4 a m., said Jennifer Jones, a spokeswoman at Baylor University Medical Center. “He was already prepped (for surgery) so I don’t think it took them veiy long to start after the liver arrived,” she said. The operation was expected to last between four and six hours, Jones said. A news conference was scheduled at 9 am COT with the entire medical team expected to be present. "We should know a lot by then," she said. Mantle’s liver has been deteriorating because of a small malignant tumor*, years of alcohol abuse and a long doff maut hepatitis C infection, doctors saidj They said his highly publicized bout with alcoholism contributed lo his proto Ions. Mantic was hospitalized on May 2$ complaining of stomach pains. Although doctors publicly announced his condition Wednesday, they notified the Soutl{ west Organ bank Inc. on Tuesday that |t new liver was needed. The organization’s director Alison Smith said it wyp not dx) unusual for ail organ lo be fount) within two days because Mantle's pool health placed him on high priority. I J ;
