In the latest victory the NB AllStars were one hit away from going into extra inning Seguin loaded the bases and scored a run on a error to cut the lead to two Runners were at second and third when Beicker stepped to the plate If he gets a single Seguin probably ties the Miller said It came down that Chad had thrown a lot of pitches at that point but he had some Seguin pitcher San Juan Arias could nt say the same in the early going New Braunfels jumped on his curve ball scoring two runs in the first inning and one run in the third fourth and fifth before the righthander settled down with the fastball Matt Harrison smacked a triple and scored the final run for New Braunfels Seguin left runners at sec ond and third in the sixth inning The NB defense held on the rest of the way to bolster Wehes effort Canyon Lake holds off New Braunfels AllStars From submitted reports The Canyon Lake AllStars took a measure of revenge with a 109 win over the New Braunfels American League AllStars in the 12yearold boys division of the District 31 Tournament The NB America All Stars rallied but fell short Canyon Lake capitalized on eight first inning walks an error and one hit to score seven runs in the first inning New Braunfels came back with a run in the bottom of the first In the top of the second Clay Janca who entered in relief of Matt Miller surrendered two more runs putting the score at 91 Patrick Pistor Lee Smith Ramsey Munoz and Dustin Miller came through with hits for Canyon Lake New Braunfels answered with three runs in the bottom of the second Ryan Cardenas dou bled Trey Swain and Clay Janca walked Matthew Miller hit a tworun single with the third run scoring on an error The top of the third saw Canyon adding a lone run via two hit batsmen and a single by Pistor In the bottom of the third Canyon Lake pitcher Charlie Rickman held New Braunfels scoreless In the top of the fourth with Ryan Parker pitching in relief of Janca New Braunfels spoiled a Canyon Lake

during secondInning action of New Braunfels American AllStars loss to Canyon Lake Major League AllStars game a cure for ailing baseball fans ARLINGTON Texas AP So thats how baseball is supposed to be played After enduring a series of sorry seasons start ing in 1972 championship baseball was finally on display in Arlington Two hours and 40 min utes of it No errors Sharp defensive plays Great pitch ing Power hitting An exciting onerun game A sellout crowd National television Now if only the Texas Rangers will absorb by osmosis the artistry portrayed in the 66th AllStar Game If so perhaps a pennant will yet fly at The Ballpark in Arlington The example has been set Some million was dropped into the local economy as a big bonus What would a World Series bring Despite the equatorial heat baseballs first championship event in North Texas went well despite Dallas owner Jerry Jones attempt to steal some of the spotlight With all the national press in DallasFort Worth it was just too tempting for Jones not to try to get writers and broadcasters out to Valley Ranch for a little elbowrubbing The Cowboys announced a major news con ference for 6 on Monday or one hour after the home run hitting contest was scheduled to end The announcement produced some scorn from national writers one of whom said I see Jerry Jones is at it again He just cant stand something else going on in town without him jumping in on the There was no mass exodus to Valley Ranch for the major announcement that the Cow boys had extended Charles Haleys contract Four print reporters showed up I know there is a lot going on in Dallas and Arlington at this particular time but we knew it would get Jones said of the million contract extension with his moody defensive end Really Haley had been signed a day earlier Presum ably Jones was worried about either himself or Haley talking Haley doesnt like to talk to the press Jones does Jones apparently was wor ried about himself leaking it Cynics in the press box were wondering why Jones didnt announce the Haley deal on Sunday when it happened Or why not wait until Wednesday on the day after the AllStar Game Or why not wait until training camp where it would be a big way to kickoff the new season The Cowboys definitely need Haley for as many years as they can keep him because their first round draft pick of two years ago Shante Carver has been a big bust at defensive end Whereas Jones didnt come off in a good light because of the timing of the Haley announcement major league baseball finally did something right with its showcase AllStar Game It illuminated the best side of baseball Inspired perhaps owners and players can get an agreement and bring all the fans back If baseball loses its fans you know who is going to be there to pick them up dont you Buechele regains third base role ARLINGTON Texas AP The Texas Rangers likely will give Steve Buechele another shot at third base although theyre waiting to make sure hell be up to the task Buechele who was cut by the Chicago Cubs July 6 and cleared waivers Tuesday signed a contract Wednesday to join Class AAA Oklahoma City for a few starts to get in shape for a return to the majors In another move Wednesday to prepare Texas for the second half the Rangers acti vated closer Jeff Russell from the disabled list Russell was sidelined June 27 because of a herniated disc in his lower back Buechele was hitting only 189 with one home run and nine RBIs in 32 games with the Cubs Texas management hopes Buechele can regain at least some of his stroke because theyd really like to have his solid glove at third It was his aggressive play and smooth fielding that helped make Buechele a fan favorite when he was with the Rangers from 198591 If I do get back up here with big league team fans can expect the same kind of player who is going to play hard flop around the infield every once in a while to make some plays and try to be productive he said Texas was looking for a third baseman because starter Dean Palmer is likely out for the year with a torn left biceps tendon Rookie Luis Ortiz and veteran Mike Pagliarulo have combined for 10 errors and Pagliarulo also has been needed at first in place of the injured Will Clark Astros edge Giants 65 in 12 innings SAN FRANCISCO AP Sunglasses dont help Neither do glances at the flags to see how the wind is blowing About the only things that work are experience and a lot of luck Derek Bell didnt have either element on his side Thursday and became yet another victim of the fickle weather at Candlestick Park The Houston right fielder lost a routine fly ball in the sun and wind to spark a threerun rally as the San Francisco Giants tied the game in the ninth Barry Bonds singled in the winning run in the 12th as the Giants defeated the Astros 65 It was in the sun and then I ran in and it went into the sun again and then the wind got into the act I was lucky to get a glove on Bell said This is a tough park especially in right field and especially when you dont play there all the The twobase error and a wild pitch by closer Todd Jones helped the Giants score three unearned runs in the ninth with just one hit After Bell dropped Robby Thompsons fly to open the inning Bonds walked and Mark Carreon doubled down the rightfield line for a run Royce Clayton had a runscor ing groundout and with two outs Carreon scored on the wild pitch Sports Briefs EAST RUTHERFORD AP The Stanley Cup champion New Jersey Devils are staying put for at least another year After that its quite possible theyll have
