   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 9, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 SPORTS  HERALD-ZEITUNG.COM | Thursday, June 9, 2011 | 9  Astros stifle Cardinals 4-1  HOUSTON (AP)  Bud Norris took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and teamed  MelanconMd oMofcoALL the St. Louis Cardinals to two hits in the Houston Astros' 4-1 win Wednesday night.  Norris (4-4) pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing only former Astro Lance Berkman's solo homer  with two outs. The blast on the fifth pitch of the at bat sailed just over the glove of Hunter Pence and into the stands in right field. Norris watched the play before pounding his hand in his glove and wiping sweat from his cheek.  The 26-year-old in his second full season in the majors relied on fastballs thrown between 90-95 mph mixed with sliders and changeups to keep the Cardinals  off balance.  Melancon yielded a two-out double to Albert Pujols in the ninth before retiring Berkman for his sixth save.  Norris, who entered the game averaging more than a strikeout an inning in his 50 previous major league appearances, struck out two and walked five in a game that tied the longest outing of his career.  Pence had an RBI triple to extend his career-best hitting streak to 19 games and help snap a four-game skid for the Astros.  Cardinals starter )aime Garcia (6-2) allowed seven hits and three runs in five innings.  Berkman, a former Canyon High School standout, who also home-red on Tuesday night, was Lxx>ed as he rounded the bases on his 14th home run that made it 3-1.

DALLAS  Sides ’very far apart’ on NBA labor deal  David Stern says owners and players remain "very far apart" on a new labor deal after completing two days of negotiations.  The NBA Commissioner used the term "far apart" five times in about 8 1/2 minutes Wednesday to describe where owners and players stand with a june 30 deadline before the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement.  The sides agreed to meet twice more next week, Tuesday in Miami if there is a Game 7 of the NBA finals or in New York, and then again Friday in New York.  NEW YORK  Rangers, Astros draft paralyzed players  Johnathan Taylor and Buddy Lamothe may never play baseball again because of injuries that left them partially paralyzed.  That didn't matter to the teams that picked them Wednesday during final day of the Major League Baseball draft.  Georgia outfielder Johnathan Taylor, a 33rd-round pick of the Texas Rangers, and San Jacinto College reliever Buddy Lamothe, the Houston Astros' 40th-round selection, were both seriously injured recently.  Taylor broke his neck in March during a game when he collided with teammate Zach Cone, the Rangers' supplemental-round pick Monday.  Lamothe was injured last month in a diving accident in San Marcos.

INTERNATIONAL FAMILY BOWLING TOURNAMENT             mtm - Tl                                          wmr «h                    fmm    M 1 JÊSÈ    f i* WÈSm?              % i. I 11 A IPr     CHRIS HOFFMAN | Herald-Zeitung  Gary, left, and Megan Knetsch qualified for the upcoming International Family Tournament in Kentucky. The Knetsch’s are shown with their trophy, given for winning the recent Texas qualifier.  Bluegrass Bowl  Father-daughter duo headed to Kentucky  By Chris Hoffman  The Herald-Zeitung ,  What went from just another bonding activity for Gary and Megan Knetsch turned into a trip to the Bluegrass State.  The father-daughter tandem recently won the Texas qualifier and will compete in the upcoming International Family Tournament in Kentucky.  Both bowlers were thrilled with winning the event, but Kentucky came as a complete shock to both, as they wondered how they would come up with the funds that it takes to pay for the two-day event.  "I had no clue that we'd be going to Kentucky when we own this tournament," Gary said. "We held some 50/50 raffles and  some bake sales at Fiesta Lanes to help raise the funds for our trip."  The International Family Tournament features bowlers from across the nation as they compete for $100,000 in scholarship prizes.  What is amazing is that both bowlers have less than two years experience.  Gary has only been bowling for less than a year, and it took some prodding by his daughter to get him to take up bowling.  "It was just something that we could do together," Gary said. "I've been coming up to watch her bowl in high school tournaments. It turned into a family event."  Megan has been impressive in  just her second year bowling, as she's won the Comal County district championship, and had an impressive showing at regionals for the Canyon Lligh School bowling team.  "I've put my whole heart into bowling," Megan said. "I've tried different sports but I took a friend up on her offer to come bowling with her and now I'm going to Kentucky."  But the time they get to spend together is the real prize for Megan and Gary.  "I don't pass up any time I can spend with my daughter," Gary said. "Those times don't last forever."  The event will be held July 30-31 at the Kingpin Lanes in Louisville, Ky.  Bruins rout Canucks, even Stanley Cup finals  BOSTON (AP)  Just three days after the Bruins staggered back to Boston, they've barged right back into the Stanley Cup finals with two brilliant blowout wins.  Tim Thomas made 37 saves in his third PfO shutout HOCKEY of the  playoffs, Rich Peverley scored two goals after replacing injured Nathan Horton on Boston's top line, and the Bruins emphatically evened the finals at two games apiece with a 4-0 victory over the foundering Van  couver Canucks in Game  4 on Wednesday night. Michael Ryder and  Brad Marchand also had goals for the Bruins, who chased Roberto Luongo early in the third period after Vancouver's star goalie allowed his 12th goal in less than two games.  The finals are now a best-of-three, with Game  5 in Vancouver on Friday night.  After outscoring Vancouver 12-1 in the last two games, the Bruins are halfway to their first NHL title since 1972.  Ogando pitches Rangers past Tigers  ARLINGTON (AP)  Alexi Ogando scattered six hits over 7 l h innings to remain unbeaten, Adrian Beltre homered, and the Texas Rangers avoided a three-game sweep by Detroit with a 7-3 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday night.  Detroit had 21 runs and 38 hits while winning the first two games of the series and had taken four straight overall. But the Tigers couldn't get much going against Ogando (7-0), who struck out seven to match a career high and walked  THE EXTRA POINT  Smithson Valley's Kat Massey  FAN ZONE SPORTS ON TV  CYCUN6 4 p.m.  VERSUS — Cnterium du Dauphin«, stage 2, Voiron to Lyon, Franc« GOLF Today lam  TGC — European PGA Tour, Italian Open, first round, at Turin, Italy 2 p.m.  TGC PGA Tour, St. Jude Clastic, first round, at Memphis, Tenn.  5:30 p.m.  TGC — LPGA, State Farm Classic, first round, at Springfield, IN.
