of spring training The Astros lost in the first round of the playoffs for the third straight time last season Had they advanced they probably would have had to go on without Wagner who strained his left elbow Its something Im going to have to Wagner said Tuesday Im going to play it right I wont it Im going to be throwing two days in a row or doing anything foolish like that The point is to be ready ing The Astros are going to another solid performance from their stopper this season Wagner held batters to a 135 average a 208 onbase percent age and 212 slugging percentage He had an ERA after the All Star break and finished with 39 saves Were not going to baby general manager Gerry Hunsicker said Hell go through the same routine as everyone else We just may not be as aggressive with him once the games start Were going to keep an eye on Wagner earned a spot on the NL AllStar team last season and aver age 15 strikeouts per nine innings I dont think about strikeouts until Jay Powell and those guys in the bullpen start talking about Wagner said When its all said and done the numbers will speak for themselves so I really dont pay too much attention to them To me the real joy is just being in the big Rangers Lamb cleared for play Schedule subject to change show 10 minutes prior to first pitch for high school games Basketball Tournament March 711 All tournament games will be broadcast SMITHSON VALLEY SOFTBALL PORT CHARLOTTE Fla AP Texas Rangers third baseman prospect Mike Lamb has been cleared to play after he was struck in the right eye by a ground ball on the first day of spring training There really isnt any pain Theres no Lamb said Tuesday after Xrays and a CAT scan found no permanent dam age Lamb one of the Rangers top prospects is expected to replace Todd Zeile at third base He had 51 doubles 21 homers and a 324 average this past year at DoubleA Tulsa of the Texas League The 51 doubles were the thirdhighest Originally we thought Zeile would sign with us but when he didnt we felt that Lamb had a great year at general manager Doug Melvin said We wanted to give him an opportunity Hes got the ability and hes hit everywhere hes The Rangers have a few options at third Tom Evans a nonroster invitee hit 280 at Oklahoma the TripleA Pacific League All Ive seen of Lamb has in spring training last year and this Rangers manager Johnny Oates said Ive seen his num bers and theyre good Its in the minor leagues last sea too early for me to say anything right 1 Polhamus Jill SO suspended for attack YORK AP The NHL right temple and he crumpled to suspended Marty

looks in the mirror It isnt the new duds Duval gave up traditional golf clothing for a tight chic style one of mock turtlenecks that look as though they belong on a 20 something executive in a dot com board meeting It has nothing to do with tak ing out that pinch between the cheek and gum Duval gave up smokeless tobacco in October and hasnt touched the snuff since The sleek sculpted body The biggest change for sure one that turned heads when he made his debut this year and has caused reporters in every city ask so many questions about fitness and diet and reps and body fat that Duval wonders whether he should write a book But for all the cosmetic changes what the mirror also reveals is a player who has gone 11 months and 18 tournaments without winning Tom Lehman ended a 2 year drought by winning in Phoenix Phil Mickelson bagged his first victory in 18 months a couple of weeks ago in San Diego Justin Leonard is still try ing to win for the first time since The Players Championship in 1998 None of them however had won 11 of their previous 34 events on the PGA Tour Duval used to win with such alarming ease that he replaced Tiger Woods as No 1 for three months Now he could be a lifetime away from catching him All of that raises a couple of questions Is the biggest change in Duval his desire Is he more obsessed with working out than he is with NBA RESULTS winning At some point it becomes vanity Duval said a con cession that he has never looked so good and knows it Duval takes pleasure out of a punishing regimen running or lifting 13 out of every 14 days You enjoy the high of he said of his pursuit to build a body for life The only low point is his golf Before anyone starts talking about a remember that his results are vaguely similar to what Woods was getting about a year and 10 victories ago The difference is that Woods was retooling his swing Duval is reshaping his body The assumption is that heavy lifting has taken a toll on the effortless powerful swing that brought Duval the only final round 59 in PGA Tour history and four victories before the Masters last year Hornets 102 Rockets 97 CHARLOTTE AP Derrick Coleman had his highest scoring game in his two seasons with Charlotte and Anthony Mason had a tripledouble to help the Hornets to a 10297 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night Coleman flirting with his first tripledouble since 1994 wound up with 32 points 12 rebounds five assists and three blocks He made 14 of 22 fieldgoal attempts as Charlotte won for the sixth time in eight games Just for good measure Coleman stopped to do a live national television interview on his way to the locker room after a first half in which he had 19 points eight rebounds and four assists Mason had 12 points 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his fifth Career tripledouble David Wesley added 21 points to help sixth consecutive loss on the Charlotte send Houston to its road 8306292215 95 Sat 102 other hours by appt YOUR

good as ever that the differ ence between a 70 and a 64 lies only in the number of putts that refuse to fall On Thursday in the Nissan Open he had seven birdie putts inside 8 feet and made one In the Mercedes Championships he finished four strokes out of the thrilling playoff between Woods and Ernie Els but lapped the field in blown birdie opportuni ties The most disappointing thing about everything going on is that people are going to want to draw conclusions that its hurt my golf which is he said If you watch me play every round all you would say is Damn he hasnt got a putt to go V I
