New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 12, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Page 10A    Herald-Ze/fung,    New    Braunfels,    Texas    Wednesday,    June    12,    1991 Ryan breaks losing streak with shutout ARLINGTON (AP) — The Texas Rangers had lost eight straight games and 11 of 12, but when Nolan Ryan is the starting pitcher, there arc few empty scats in Arlington Stadium anymore. A partisan crowd of 38,172 wasn’t disappointed Tuesday night as Ryan (4-4) gave a vintage performance in the Rangers’ 2-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox, striking out IO, walking I and scattering 6 hits for his 306th carcer victory and 61st carcer shutout. The 44-year-old Ryan moved past Eddie Plank into 17th place in all-time victories, one behind Mickey Welch, and tied Tom Seaver for eighth on the all-time shutout list. Ryan struck out IO or more for the 210th game of his career, and third time this season. Despite spending 15 days on the disabled list, Ryan almost regained the AL strikeout lead. He has 86, two behind Boston’s Roger Clemens. But based on his pre game warmups, Ryan wasn’t sure how good — or how bad — he would be, he said. “I did not have good command of any of my pitches before the game. I don’t like going out there with that kind of warmup, but you can’t let it affect your approach to the game,” Ryan said. The 44-year-old righthander gave up a single to leadoff hitler Tim Raines and. after Raines stoic second, hit the No. 3 batter, Frank Thomas. “The way things had been going for us, it’s important not to put the team in the hole in the First inning,” Ryan said. It took Ryan 25 pitches, but he finally got out of the inning without a run. After that, he allowed two runners on base in only one inning. But Chicago’s Alex Fernandez (2-6) was matching Ryan strikeout for American League All Times CDT East Division W L Pct GB (A.Anderson 3 4). 7:35p m, Chicago (Hough 3-2) at Texas (Barfield 2-1), 7:35 pm.

The Rangers scored twice in the sixth on Mike Stanley’s RBI single and a bases loaded walk to Mario Diaz. After that, Ryan got tougher. He needed only 28 pitches, 24 of which were strikes, the last three innings. ‘‘I think I got into a better rhythm. When you get a lead, you can be a little more aggressive and not as fine. With a streak like this, you need all of them (wins). The thing we nfecd to do is establish some consistency,” Ryan said. Astros 1, Phillies 0 (11) HOUSTON (AP) — Houston’s Mark Portugal didn’t get the victory but he got satisfaction. Portugal pitched a career high IO shutout innings, struck out a season high seven batters and watched from the dugout as Al Osuna (2-2) got the victory in the lith inning as the Astros beat Philadelphia 1-0 Tuesday night on Roger McDowell’s bascs-loadcd walk to Ken Obcrkfell. ‘‘After some of the things I said the past few says, I lek I’d better go out and throw some shut out innings,” Portugal said. “I made some derogatory statements the past few days that made my teammates angry.” Portugal declined to repeat his statements and his teammates also were mum. But the result was Portugal’s best performance of the season, extending the Astros’ winning streak to three in arow. ‘‘It was a good night, it was by far the most consistent performance I’ve had all season,” Portugal said. ‘‘I had some good defense behind mc. The defense was great so I felt I had to go out and perform.” Portugal and Philadelphia starter Pat Combs dueled through nine innings until Combs departed with five hits and three strikeouts before McDowell came on to eventually get the loss. Portugal pitched through the 10th before he turned the game over to Osuna, who faced three batters in the lith. McDowell (3-2) struck out Craig Biggio to start the lith, but Ken Caminiti and Jeff Bagwell followed with singles and Steve Finley was intentionally walked before McDowell walked Obcrkfell on four pitches. ‘‘I was trying to throw a strike on the first pitch and I didn’t,” McDowell said. ‘‘It shouldn’t happen. If he gets a hit that’s fine but not a walk.” Houston left the bases loaded in the 10th when Casey Candacle took a called third strike from McDowell after a single by Mark Davidson and walks to pinch-hitter Luis Gonzalez and Erie Yelding. Oberkfell has been the Astros’ clutch pinch-hitter all season, a role he’s learned to relish. ‘‘Sure, I’d like to play more, everybody would but I understand my role on this team and I work at it to do the best I can,” Obcrkfell said. ‘‘You have your good days and your bad. Hopefully, there arc more good days than bad.” Combs, who lost his last three starts, pitched nine innings and gave up five hits. He took Phillies coach Denis Mcnkc’s advice prior to the game. ‘‘He told me to go out and have the aggrieve attitude like I did in 1989 when I first came up,” Combs said. ‘‘He told me to let the ball go so that’s what I did.” But his effort couldn’t overcome Portugal’s ironman performance. After Dale Murphy’s fourth-inning single, Portugal retired 12 batters in a row before Dickie Thon reached base in the eighth on shortstop Yelding’s second error of the game. ‘‘He just didn’t throw the ball over the plate,” Phillies manager Jim Fre-gosi said of McDowell. ‘‘I knew they would hit Obcrkfell and I thought we had a better chance to double up Obcrkfell than Finley.” Adams returns to Washington DENVER (AP) — The Denver Nuggets traded point guard Michael Adams back to Washington Tuesday for the Bullets' first {rick in the NBA draft, which is the eighth choice overall. The Nuggets also gave up their No. 19 pick in the first round and future draft considerations. The deal gives the Nuggets the fourth and the eighth choices in the first round — the highest two choices Denver has ever had in its NBA draft history. Adams, who starred for the Nuggets for four seasons, led the team in scoring (26.5), assists (10.5) and minutes played (35.5) this season. He was acquired from the Bullets in November 1987 with Jay Vincent in exchange for Darien Walker and Mark Alane. "We appreciate til the contributions Michael Adams has made to this franchise, and we wish him all the best,” Denver General Man** ger Bernie Bickerstaff said. *v'We are in the process of rebuilding the team, and this gives us two early first-round {rides." SA’s Brown visits with South Carolina COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — San Antonio Spurs coach Larry Brown has met with South Carolina officials about their head coaching job, a newspaper reported today. Brown met with Gamecocks officials Tuesday night in Dallas, The State newspaper of Columbia reported. It quoted unnamed “sources.” There were no immediate details available about the discussion. Brown had said earlier he would meet with South Carolina officials within 48 hours. “They obviously want to talk to mc, and I want to get this over with,” Brown said Tuesday at an impromptu news conference outside his home in San Antonio, Texas. “I will go and meet with them in the next day or two.” The search committee is scheduled to meet Friday. “I’ve always thought that some day I’d be back in college,” Brown said. “I didn’t anticipate it happening very soon. I’m still not sure. “I look at myself as someone who likes to leach, and you know that’s something that’s always made me think about college. But I have a good situation here regardless of the finances, and I’m aware of that.” The well-traveled Brown didn’t say how interested he was in the job at a 15-minute news conference and could not be reached for comment Tuesday by telephone by The Associated Moore hired at St. Gerard SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Former San Antonio Spurs point guard Johnny Moore has been hired as an assistant basketball coach at St. Gerard High School in San Antonio. Moore will head the junior varsity basketball program and assisi coach Joe McGowan with the varsity team. Moore will not be required to leach classes at the Catholic high school, officials said. “I am excited about this,” Moore said Monday. “I always wanted to work with kids and it’s my hope that things will work out.” Moore, 33, completed a nine-year career with the Spurs in 1990. He averaged 9.4 points and 7.4 assists during his career, which was interrupted in 1985 by a bout with desert fever. “I’ve basically been cooling out the last few months,” Moore said. “I was still pursuing my career.” The Altoona, Pa., native served briefly as a student assistant to thcn-coach Abe Lemons at the University of Texas in 1979. Moore had been a two-time All-Southwest Conference player with the Longhorns, starting every game during his four years in Austin. “We think that Johnny is the type of person who we would like to have around young people,’’ said St. Gerard trustee Bob Kinnally. “He's a clean-cut person and very interested in helping people. We feel real good about this opportunity.” Press. Brown, 50, did not return messages left at his office, and his home telephone was busy. Art Baker, a member of the school’s search committee, received permission Friday from Spurs vice president Bob Bass to interview Brown. Brown said South Carolina officials wanted to fly to San Antonio on Monday for the interview, but he had previous commitments. One reason Brown is interested in the job is his two daughters live in Charlotte, N.C., which is about an hour from Columbia. South Carolina also enters the Southeastern Conference on July I. And then there’s one other reason: Frank McGuire, the ex-Gamecock coach who coached Brown at North Carolina. South Carolina has been searching for a new coach since firing George Felton on May 14. A source told the AP on Tuesday the number of candidates had been reduced to IO to 12 and that the search committee will try to cut the list further Friday. One sticking point for Brown may be his salary. He has two years left on a five-year $3.5 million contract. If he came to South Carolina, his base salary would be no more than $100,000, although with perks he could make at least $250,000 and possibly more. One sucking point for South Carolina is Brown’s history. Not only has he moved from job to job frequently, but his problems with the NCAA when he was at Kansas and UCLA might work against him. Both programs went on probation shortly after he left, but the NCAA cleared him of wrongdoing. The only violation associated with Brown came when he paid airline fare for one of the Kansas players lo return home to visit a dying grandmother. An NCAA spokesman said the infractions committee was satisfied with Brown’s explanation. “Thai’s another reason I’d want to go back into college coaching,” he said. “A lot of that stuff wasn't talked about. But if I ever get an interview with South Carolina, the first thing I want them to do is talk to the NCAA. It’s important to me it’s cleared up.” In seven years as a college coach. Brown compiled a 177-61 record. He led UCLA to the Final Four in 1980 and won the national title at Kansas in 1988. Overall, in 18 years as a head coach Brown is 702-417. Another possible candidate for the job dropped out Tuesday. Jimmy Black, an assistant at South Carolina, was hired as an assistant at Notre Dame by coach John MacLeod. Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Wayne Embry said Tuesday assistant coach Brian Winters had not asked him for permission to talk with South Carolina. Winters played basketball at South Carolina and his name has surfaced as a possible candidate. Winters has refused to comment on the matter. Winters’ contract runs out at the end of the month, said Embry, who would not comment on whether the NBA team plans to retain him. South Carolina reportedly received more than IOO applications or expressions of interest from coaches. Eight coaches have acknowledged applying, including Siena’s Mike Deane and Coastal Carolina’s Russ Bergman. Kansas assistant Jerry Green has expressed a strong interest in the job. Other possible candidates include Furman’s Butch Estes, Rutger’s Bob Wenzel, an assistant under ex-Gamecock coach Bill Foster, and former Tennessee and Florida coach Don DeVoe.
