Photo submitted Larry Todd of San Antonio pones with tho 14 pound, 15 ounce fish ho caught Saturday at Canyon Lake. Tho fish was 271/2 inchss long and had a 24 inch girth. James Neeley of Converse was the witness. Both Todd and Neeley are employed by the City of Live Oak Utilities Department. From Page 5 That would certify Boston’s 1990 trade of Bagwell, a 22-year-old minor leaguer at the time, for faded pitcher Larry Andersen as one of the most one-sided (teals in baseball history. Since joining the Astros in 1991, a year removed from Double A ball, Bagwell has established himself as a dangerous slugger with a knack for driving in runs. He has led Houston in RBIs in all six of his major league seasons. Last year, he established Astros single-season records for doubles (48), extra base hits (81), total bases (324) and RBIs (120). This year, itY been more of the same. In addition to tying Colorado^ Larry Walker for the NL lead with 14 Rockets homers, Bagwell is hitting .311 and has 41 RBIs in 44 games. “Bagwell is getting in a pretty good groove,” Astros manager Larry Dierker said. “When he does that, he makes it a lot easier for us.” The Astros already had a 4-0 lead, and two homers off Phillies starter Calvin Maduro (3-5), when Bagwell opened the sixth inning with a line (hive homer over the left field wall for his 1,000th hit. “If you’re going to get it, you might as well get it that way,” he said. Bagwell’s homer started the Astros on a four-run inning that put them up 8-0. The other runs came on RBI doubles by Craig Biggio and Thomas Howard, and a run-scoring single by starting pitcher Darryl Kile (4-2). From Page 5 In a pre-game ceremony hosted by the commissioner, Malone picked up his trophy as quickly as he could, refused to say any words to the crowd, held the trophy up, spun around and sprinted back to the Jazz bench. “I didn’t want to draw any more attention to the MVP than had already been on me,” Malone said. “They wanted me to say something, and I said absolutely not. I don’t want the fans to think I snubbed them, but I didn’t want to get caught up in it because this game was big for us.” But couldn’t he at least have thanked the fans? Couldn’t he have given the home crowd a little insight into what this accolade meant? “Me talking could have gotten the other team revved up to play, so I made it short and sweet, I turned to NBA Playoffs Monday’s Gams Utah 101, Houston 86 Utah leads aeries 1*0 Tonight's Gams Miami at Chicago, 730 pm TV TNT every direction of the crowd so they could see it, and then I was out of there,” he said. Malone played — at least for him — a mediocre game with 21 points, 13 rebounds, five turnovers and a 6-for-16 shooting performance. But he also helped hold Charles Barkley to 12 points. “You look at the stats and see that Karl had a bad game — at least for him — and it’s good because we won and we know he will be back stronger,” Jeff Homacek said.
