rafters on the Guadalupe River take in fun and sun Clemens gets ninth win at Rangers expense Blue Jays I Rangers 1 TORONTO AP Texas Rangers manager Johnny Gates has seen plen ty of Roger Clemens over the years Clemens still showed Gates something new 1 dont know if Ive seen him pitch Gates said Ive seen him throw better but pitching and throw ing are different He was up he was down he was out Im not positive but I thought I even saw one kitchen Clemens 90 became the majors Berkmans bat helps Owls get CWS berth LUBBOCK AP What a hoot The Rice Owls are in the College World Series for the first time It really hasnt sunk in Lance Berkman said Sunday after Rice beat Southwest Missouri State 256 to win the Central Regional When we real ize were going to Omaha it will be great Hopefully we can go there and make some The Owls especially Berkman made lots of noise in Lubbock Texas collecting 25 hits against SW Missouri State Berkman a Canyon High School graduate was 4tbr5 with two homers and four RBIs first ninegame winner with a four hitter over seven innings and the Toronto Blue Jays matched their sea son high in runs and hits with an 81 victory over the Rangers on Monday night Despite a blister on his pitching thumb that tore open in the second inning Clemens gave up one run struck out seven and walked four to lower his AL leading ERA to His 90 start is the second best in club history to Dennis Lamps 110 season in 1985 When it tore it actually felt Clemens said It wasnt a blood blis ter I already have new skin growing Up by eight runs after two innings Clemens said his concern was not getting too complacent You just cant wind up and throw even with that kind of he said Youve got to go right after The Blue Jays who have had trou ble scoring runs this season put up four in each of the first two innings Orlando Merced keyed a ninebat ter first inning with his fifth home run of the season and Ruben Sierra who went 3for3 singled in a run before Alex Gonzalez singled home two for a 40 lead Ed Sprague hit his ninth home run of the season a twoout tworun shot to left in the second and Sierra added a runscoring triple before coming home on shortstop Benji Gils field ing error for an 80 advantage That was nice to Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston said We havent had too many games this sea son when weve had that kind of early le d I think everybody enjoyed it I know Roger Bonds has a busy Memorial Day Giants Astros Giants slugger hits gamewinning homer SAN FRANCISCO AP One intentional walk wasnt enough to get around Barry Bonds Bonds capped a threehit perfor mance with a leadoff home run in the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Houston Astros 43 Monday Hes the best hitter in baseball and he showed Houstons Jeff Bagwell said Its also why Bonds a threetime MVP has drawn a leagueleading 47 walks including an intentional pass in San Franciscos threerun second That paid off for the Astros when Jeff Kent struck out to end the inning The problem was the Astros could nt take the bat out of Bonds hands all the time While his singles in the first and seventh didnt do any dam age the Astros ran out of luck in ninth when Bonds drove a 10 offer ing from Jose Lima 03 into the rightfield bleachers for his eighth home run Hes such a good Lima said He saw two changes in a row and he hit the second one The second one was a strike and thats what he was looking San Francisco manager Dusty Baker said Bonds served notice in recent games that he was regaining his hitting form Hes been swinging the bat better and we just knew it was a matter of Baker said Nobody is better in those situations than Barry Bonds It was a great piece of Bonds patience was tested early this season by a steady diet of walks it feels good for me to finally help this team a little Giants outfielder Barry Bonds and junk pitches but lately hes been more selective Its been happening said Bonds who is batting 320 1650 over his last 15 games His threehit performance raised his overall aver age to 265 It feels good for me to finally help this team a little said Bonds Julian Tavarez 12 got the final out in the top of the ninth to pick up his first National League win Tavarez spent four seasons with Cleveland before he was traded to the Giants last November in the Matt Williams deal Golf Bulldogs finish in seventh From staff reports TULSA

ridiculous thing to come along and we pander to Riley said after Mondays Game 4 when Rodman and the Meats Alonzo Mourning wrestled to the floor The league knows it and they let him get away with it He takes a half cheap shots a Zo vs the Worm played ii central role in the Heats K7KO victory Monday to avoid a Kastern Conference finals sweep Rodman and Mourning went to the floor with lull in the fourth quar ter while battling for the ball Hes out there trying to poke my eyes Rodman said I le got me in a hcadloek trying u hit me this and that Hes just a young kid He doesnt know how to play the

throughout the second half Replays showed Mourning tapping Rodman on the head before Riley separated the two players I had a real hard time getting them Riley said 1 had to get a knee in there I had to get my arms in there and they were saying everything to one Rodmans streak of tecrmicalfouls in every one of the Bulls playoff games continued when a double tech nical was called following the alter cation Mourning who scored 18 points and pulled down 14 rebounds had lit tle to say about it Its unfortunate we got tied Mourning said In that situation the referees made the right decision Im
