By MICHAEL GRACZYK
Associated Press Writer
THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP)— Jeff Maggert, playing on his home turf at the Tournament Players Course at The Woodlands, shot a 6-under-par 66 Saturday to claim a one-shot lead over David Duval after three rounds of the Shell Houston Open.
Maggert, who had seven birdies, suffered his only bogey at No. 18 when he chipped past the hole and missed a 10-footer for par. That gave him a 14-under 202 after three rounds.
Duval, returning to competition for the first time in three weeks after a tick bite put him in the hospital for three days, was one shot back after a 67.
Mark Brooks, who started the day one shot in front, flitted with the lead all day until bogeys on 17 and 18 left him at 70 and 204.
Woody Austin, last year’s PGA rookie of the year, shot the day’s low round, a 65, and was three strokes back at 205. Doug 2Martin, John Cook and Tommy Tolies were at 207.
Maggert, looking for his second career victory, began the day two shots behind Brooks but got off fast with birdies on Nos. I and 2. Then he birdied four of the first six holes on the back nine. He, too, had his only bogey at No. 18.
Brooks started Saturday with a one-shot advantage over Martin and first-

round co-leaders Tolies and Mike Springer. He birdied the par-5 first hole, then birdied Nos. 3 and 6 for a two-shot advantage.
When he got to the par-4 10th, he picked up only his second bogey of the tournament, which allowed Duval and Maggert, who both birdied the hole, to climb into a share of the lead.
Duval went up by (me shot when he birdied No. ll. Maggert, his playing partner, joined him with a birdie at 12 and took the lead alone with a birdie at the par-5 15th. In just his second year on the PGA Tour, he’s the overall No. 1-rated driver on Tour.
First-place Rangers edge Tigers 3-1
DETROIT (AP) — The Texas Rangers became the first American League team in 79 years to pitch consecutive one-hitters Saturday as Roger Pavlik held Detroit to a fifth-inning home nm in a 3-1 win over the Tigers.
A day after Texas’ Ken Hill one-hit Detroit, retiring the last 26 batters he faced, Pavlik set down 14 straight Tigers before Mark Lewis hit a two-out homer in the fifth.
fnaiad FavKk enabled the Rangers to become the first AL team to pitch back-to-back one-hitters since the Washington Nationals one-hit the Chicago White Sox in consecutive games in 1917.
Pavlik (4-0) faced just 28 batters —
one over the minimum — and retired the last 13 to end the game. He struck out seven and didn’t walk a batter in winning his fourth game in his fourth attempt
The 40 consentive batters retired by Hill and Pavlik set a club record.
Kevin Elster homered for Texas, which matched the 1976 and 1989 Rangers for the best 30-game start in club history.
Grog Gohr (1-4) gave up dine runs and nine bits in 6 2-3 innings as the Tigers lost for the 14th time in their last 16 games. Pavlik, who blew leads of five, seven and five tuns in his last three starts, got all the support he needed Saturday when the Rangers scored twice in
the third inning.
Darryl Hamilton led off with a double and scored on a single from Ivan Rodriguez, who eventually scored on a grounder by Juan Gonzalez.
Elster’s sixth homer made it 3-0 in the fourth before Lewis’ seventh home run cut it to 3-1 in the fifth. ANotes:@ The Rangers’ previous record for consecutive batters retired was 35, a streak which included Kenny Rogers’ perfect game against California on July 28,1994. The streak ended the next day when present Tiger Chad Curtis, then an Angel, drew a first-inning leadoff walk against Pavlik. Lewis’ seven homers leave him just two short of his career high.

Sports EditorJudge loosens gag order in Irvin drug case
DALLAS (AP) — A judge has relaxed a strict gag order in the felony drug case against Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin but criticized news reports that he said made the order necessary.
"Failure to impose an order restricting prejudicial pretrial publicity in these cases would impair the state’s ability to impanel a fair and impartial jury,’* said
stale District Judge Manny Alvarez, who issued the order Friday.
It replaces one first issued by state District Judge John Creuzot, who presided over the Dallas County grand jury that indicted Irvin and two others.
Irvin was indicted April I along with Angela Beck, 22, and Jasmine Nabwan-gu, 21. The women were with Irvin and
former Cowboys tight end Alfredo Roberts in a motel room when police officers conducted a March 4 raid. The indictment charged Irvin with felony possession of four or more grams of cocaine and misdemeanor marijuana possession. The two women, one of whom is now the target of a deportation proceeding, also were indicted on drug charges.
The New Braunfels girls’ tennis program has seen its share of state titles in the past decade.
For all its success, there is still one achievement lingering on the horizon— a singles and doubles championship in the same year. It has never been done at NBHS.
Rebekah Forney, Andrea Giesick, Tamarra Jenkin take aim at dux unprecedented feat when they hit the courts of the UIL Class 4A State Tennis Tournament in Austin on Monday and Tuesday.
“We’re excited about the chance to do something special for New Braunfels,’* saki Forney, who is ranked Na I in the state in Superchampionships 18 by die USTA. ‘It would be great to come back to school with two titles. That’s what we’re going for.”
Forney, a junior, captured the regional singles crown two weeks ago in San Antonio, defeating Shere Ewing of Tuloso Midway 6-0, 6-3 in the finals. Jenkin and Giesick, both seniors, emerged from McFariin Tennis Center as regional double champions by topping Catherine Olsen and Lindsey Callum of Alamo Heights 6-1,6-2.
Reaching the state tournament is nothing new for these girls. Last year, Forney and Jenkin advanced to the singles semifinals, eventually losing to the state champion. Giesick, who has been to state three of the last four years, won it all with

doubles partner Sarah Boite (now with the University of Houston) in 1994.
The current NBHS trio has compiled a phenomenal 179-1 combined record (fatting to last fall in team tennis, and coach David Mueller believes they can add to that mark in Austin.
“On paper they are the best players, but that only means so much,” Mueller said. "Everyone at state is very good. Rebekah, Tamarra and Andrea certainly have a good shot at winning state titles.”
They are equally as impressive in the classroom as they are on the court. Jenkin, the school's valedictorian, scored a 1,580 in her SAT. Forney is ranked in the top five of her class, and Giesick, an A student, is ranked 17 in her class.
Forney, whose serve has been clocked a 99 mph, said the key to her success will be mixing her power game with an occasional serve and volley.
"There are a few areas I can improve on, but I have a lot of confidence in my power game,” Forney said.
