New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 15, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Thon powers Astros past SFBriefly By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Houston Astros’ Manager Bob Lillis is so impressed by the progress Dickie Thon is making on his comeback that he’s on the verge of naming him the regular shortstop again. “We’ll be playing Dickie on an everyday basis before the season's end,” Iillis said Wednesday after Thon’s three-run pinch homer in the seventh inning powered a 7-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Thon, out of action most of 1984 after being struck above the left eye by a pitch on April 8, has his situation in perspective. “I can’t dwell on this because tomorrow is another day,” he said. “But I’m feeling a lot better gradually and there are no more headaches. A home run like this builds your confidence, but for me, everything is important. I’m just trying to see the ball and hit it somewhere.” Thon also had a run-scoring single in the ninth and finished with 4 HBI. The two hits lifted his average to .2(51 and the pinch hit was his first of the year. Thon is batting .415 in his last 16 games and .417 in his last dozen starts.Blue Jays 4, Rangers 1 Dave Stieb pitched a four-hitter and Jesse Barfield scored twice and drove in two runs to lift Toronto over Texas. Stieb, 11-8, walked four and struck out four in going the distance. With the score tied 1-1, Barfield led off the fifth with his 19th homer of the year. Stieb walked four Hangers and struck out four as he lowered his league-leading earned run average to 2.23. Charlie Hough, 11-12, pitched seven innings for the Hangers and took the loss. He gave up five hits, walked two and struck out three Dwayne Henry, the third Texas pitcher, got the last out in the top of the ninth to finish the game. The Blue Jays got on the board with a run in the third. With one out, Barfield walked, stole second and advanced to third on a passed ball by Geno Petralli He scored on a sacrifice fly by Garth Iorg. The Hangers tied it in the fourth Pete O'Brien singled and advance to second when Duane Walker walked. George Wright followed with a run-scoring single. Toronto took a 2-1 lead in the fifth on Barfield's leadoff home run. his 19th of the year. The Blue Ja>s added two insurance runs in the top of the ninth on singles by George Bell and Willie Upshaw. a sacrifice fly by Ernie Whitt and Barfield s double Stieb finished the game by striking out two of the last three HangersOrioles 8, Indians 4 Mike Young lias made believers out of the C leveland American National League League By The Associated Press By The Associated Press East Division East Division W L I Pct.

Judge to rule today in point shaving case NEW ORLEANS APi    Distr ut    J luke Alvin Oser said la* would rule today on whether lo throw out charges against Tulane basketball star John “Hot Hod' Williams on the grounds that prosecutors have been using dirty tricks against him. Williams' lawyer. Michael Green of Chicago, contended on Wednesday that his client is bellic subjected ti “trial by ambush'' and asked that all charges be dismissed because of misconduct by prosecutors Williams. 24, is charged with three counts of sports bribery and two counts of taking bribes to shave points while he was playing at Tulane last season He faces a maximum sentence of 17 years in prison and $35,000 in fines if convicted on all five counts Green said that prosecutors violated federal law — and the repeated order of Oser — by withholding evidence that nught tend to exonerate Williams, including a photograph of star prosecution witness Gary Kranz holding a straw in his hand and posing with a pile of cocaine. Kranz testified Wednesday that he was only a recreational user of cocaine and then only on such rare occasions as formal dances or holidays. Cocaine allegedly brought together the principals in the point-shaving scheme. Several other photographs show others involved in the case taking cocaine and posing with straws in their noses. Green said And prosecutors have several names of people who got drugs from Kranz, he said. Depriving him of that evidence kept the defense from mounting its best cross-examination of Kranz. Green said Federal law says that prosecutors who come into possession of evidence that might tend to acquit a defendant must furnish that material to the defense. It is called Brady material after the U.S. Supreme Court decision which established the law. Green said the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office has deliberately hidden such Brady material, including a tape recording of a statement given by former Tulane forward Jon Johnson, who is testifying for the prosecution under a grant of immunity.Open gym for basketball scheduled at BMS An open gym for adult basketball is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday beginning tonight at Bulverde Middle School.
