New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 9, 1982, New Braunfels, Texas Sambito will pitch again for Astros HOUSTON (AP) — Houston Astros relief pitcher Joe Sambito, injury-free throughout his career, didn’t think he could survive the trauma of his first surgery. “I’ve handled this a lot better than I thought,” Sambito said in a telephone interview from his hospital bed Thursday. “I’ve never had an injury before and I thought if I did, I would go totally bananas. But I found you can learn. “I just didn’t think about what could have been, I just concentrated on the future.” Sambito likely has a future after Dr. Frank Jobe of Los Angeles removed a tendon from Sambito’s foot and used it to reconstruct ligament in his left elbow. Jobe also removed painful bone chips that had caused the ligament damage. When the surgery started, Sambito knew there was a possibility the operation would be more complicated than removing bone chips. And he knew immediately what had happened when he woke up from the surgery. “The first thing I saw when I woke up was the cast on my foot and I was disappointed, but we knew that the possibility existed for more damage,” Sambito said. Despite the latest setback, Sambito says Jobe has assured him that he will pitch again. “He (Jobe) told me there is a IOO percent chance that I’ll pitch again, it’s just going to take a litle bit longer,” Sambito said. Sambito still anticipates being ready to go to spring training next season. “The thing I have to do now, is not rush things,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of time now to get ready.” Sambito has not pitched since April 27 and never reached his 1979 All-Star form this season. In his final outing he went two innings in one of his better performances. “But the last pitch I threw doubled me over,” Sambito said. “I knew there was something wrong in there. It felt like my elbow was coming apart. Now that we found out what was wrong, I can understand why I felt that way.’ Sambito had a career high 22 saves in 1979 and was named to the National League All-Star team. Sambito’s abbreviated 1982 season included four saves in nine appearances and an earned run average of 0.71. His career totals include an EHA of 2.40,72 saves and a 33-32 record. Sambito’s injury has been typical of the misfortune plaguing the Astros pitching staff this season. “The thing that people don’t realize is that all of our pitchers had about the best season they could possibly have. It was just too much to think we could repeat that kind of performance this vear." ASTROS' JOE SAMBITO ...down but not out Major league baseball Stargell's pinch-hitting homer helps Pirates sneak past Reds, 8-7Sports shorts By ASSOCIATED PRESS Lightning struck in Pittsburgh for the second night in a row, but this time the Pirates replied with some thunder of their own.

West Germany ousts France 5-4 in World Cup action MADRID,Spain (API Blood, sweat and tears ushered Italy and West Germany past desperate opposition into the final of the World Cup and a showdown Sunday for global soccer supremacy.

It will be the fourth finale for both teams. Italy won in 1934 and 1938 and West Germany in 1954 and 1974. In the nerves recking contest which lasted until nearly nud-niglit, France looked like a winner after pulling ahead 3-1 in the overtime. But West Germany got a goal from its leader, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who had sat out the first 90 minutes with a thigh injury, and then pulled level at 3-3 on a goal by Klaus Fischer. The penalty contest in which each team was alloted five kicks was filled with tension. With France up 3-2, French goalkeeper Jean-Luc Ettori batted down u kick by German sweeper Uh Stielike, who collapsed to the grass and held his head in agony.

French fullback Maxime Bossis mistimed his shot and Schumacher again saved. Then Hrubesch beat Ettori. Rurnmenigge’s goal gave him five for the tournament, matching Rossi as the leading scorer. Poland played without its offensive sparkplug, Zbigniew Boniek, who was sitting out a one-match suspension.
