   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 30, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 herald-zeitung.com | Thursday, June 30, 2011 | 7  SPORTS  Kinsler leads Rangers past Astros  Rangers 3 Astros 2  HOUSTON (AP)  Ian Kinsler homered twice for the first time in almost two years and Colby Lewis had another solid start to lead the Texas Rangers to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.  Kinsler hit a leadoff homer and also went deep in his next at-bat in the third inning to help Texas to an early 3-0 lead. It was the eighth multi-home  run game of his career and his first since August 2009 against the Yankees.  Lewis (7-7) pitched six sc oreless innings before giving up a pair of runs in the seventh inning to cut the Rangers lead to one.  He allowed six hits and struck out six as the Rangers won their eighth straight game in Houston.  Carlos Lee had a solo homer  for the Astros, who have dropped five straight and have the worst record in the majors at 28-53.  Neftali Feliz had a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.  Houston starter Brett Myers (3-7) allowed six hits and three runs in seven innings.  Andres Blanco doubled after Kinsler's fourth leadoff homer of the season and the 17th of his career. Adrian Beltre's single  to right field with one out scored Blanco to make it 2-0.  Kinsler's second homer opened the third inning and landed in the Crawford Boxes in left field to make it 3-0.  Lee's homer to left field that mack* it 3-1 came with one out in the seventh inning.  Clint Barmes' single to shallow center field scored Matt Downs and got Houston within 3-2.

One Step Closer  Landa Park Dolphins gear up for regionals  By Chris Hoffman  The Herald-Zeitung  All roads lead to The Games of Texas-Texas Amateur Athletic Foundation State Championships in Waco.  But first the Landa Park Dolphins swim team must get over a few hurdles first before going after state gold.  One of the those hurdles was last weekend's Rotary City Championships, which are a precursor to the TAAF Regional Championships.  The regionals are a qualifying meet fc r the The Games of Texas state championships held in Waco from July 27-31.  Thirty-nine city championship  ■ RELATED: Check out the full results from last weekend's City Championships. Page 8  and 13 team records fell during last weekend's meet, to put the Dolphins on pace to eclipse last year's state showing.  In 2010, the Dolphins had a stunning 59 individual swimmers and 17 relay teams qualify for the prestigious state competition.  Six-year-old Kyle Peter broke the city championship record in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 52.40, besting the time of 1:01.31 set last year.  Peter also broke his own record of 22.98 in the 25-yard freestyle  with a time of 21.79, and took first in the mixed 25-yard backstroke with a time of 28.65.  On the girls side, eight-year-old Chaeli Criddle set a city championship record in the 100-yard individual medley with a time of 1:40.31.  The old record was 1:48.29 set in 2010.  Criddle also set a city record in the 25-yard freestyle with a time of 16.91, besting the time of 18.18, and in the 25-yard breaststroke with a time of 22.48.  The old record was 26.35 set by Amy Gullick in 2010.  The regionals are set for 8 a.m. on July 9 at Landa Park Aquatic Center.  NBA heads to CBA deadline, sides far apart  NEW YORK (AP)  The NBA is headed to deadline day, with perhaps one last chance to avoid a lockout.  Negotiators for owners and players will meet Thursday, about 12 hours before the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement and seemingly nowhere close to a deal.  The sides remain far apart on just about every major issue, from salaries to the salary cap, revenues to revenue sharing.  After meeting twice a week for most of the month, this is the only session scheduled this  week. The two sides could continue bargaining past the deadline, but that probably requires owners to see evidence of the gap narrowing Thursday.  Otherwise, they could lock out the players for the first time since the 1998-99 season was reduced to 50 games.  Players declined to offer a new economic proposal in the most recent meeting Friday, and they may still feel their previous offer to reduce their salaries by $500 million over five years is going far enough.  Berkman a lock for All-Star game  With online balloting nearing the end, St. Louis' Lance Berkman has a stranglehold on a starting spot in the Midsummer Classic.  Berkman (3,208,183), and leading vote-getter Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun (3,932,100) all maintained steady leads in the National League outfield.  Berkman, a former Canyon star, has seem a career resurgence this season, while hatting .294 with 18 home runs and 55 RBIs through Wednesday for the Cardinals.  The AL and NL rosters will be unveiled at 11 a.m. Sunday on the 2011 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show, televised nationally on TBS.  Online voting continues until the deadline today at 10:59 p.m.  The 2011 Majot League Baseball All-Star Game will be held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz. on July 12 on FOX.  It will be the first MLB All-Star Game to be held in Arizona and the first in a National League Rark to have a designated hitter.

Federer barely looked challenged while winning the first two sets against the 12th-seeded Frenchman. But the Swiss star, who had been 178-0 in matches in which he had won the opening two sets at a major tournament, was broken one time in each of the last three sets.  The other favorites all won Wednesday, though not without some difficulty: No. 1 Rafael Nadal numbed his injured left foot with a pamkimng injection then beat No. 10 Mardy Fish of the United States 6-  3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4; No. 2 Novak Djokovic was a break down in the third set but reeled off seven games in a row to get past 18-year-old qualifier Bernard Tornic of Australia 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5; and No. 4 Andy Murray pulled up awkwardly after tweaking his hip changing directions on one third-set point but otherwise breezed past unseeded Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4, 6-  4.  Federer was seeking to equal Pete Sampras' record of seven Wimbledon singles titles. He breezed through his opening four matches, losing only one set, and played his usual elegant game against Tsonga.  In the first set, Federer earned his one and only break point of the match in Tsonga's first service game, and converted it. He held the rest of the way, and then won the second set in the tiebreaker.  But Tsonga finally got his first break in the third set, and another in the fourth and another in the fifth.  LANCE GLANCE  Former Canyon High School standout Lance Berkman, now  a rightfielder with the St. Louis Cardinals, went 0 for-1 with a run and RBI ir a 5-1 win over Baltimore He is batting .294 this season.
