Cubs fans rumble with Dodgers at Wrigley Field CHICAGO (AP) — For the second year in a row, a night game at Wrigley Field was disrupted and delayed by unruly fans. This time, they did more than throw litter. They threw punches at the Los .Angeles Dodgers. Dodgers catcher Chad Kreuter was in the bullpen Tuesday night when a fan hit him in the back of the head and stole his cap. Kreuter gave chase, his teammates followed, and soon there were a half-dozen or so Dodgers in the stands, trading punches with fans. It took stadium security nine minutes — and several tries — to restore order. Cubs officials beefed up security in the stadium before Wednesday’s game, and pledged to prevent future incidents. Three fans were arrested, charged with disorderly con duct, and released, with a June 19 court date set. A fourth fan, who ran onto the field earlier in the game, was charged with trespassing. Major League Baseball officials said they would investigate the incident and punish Dodgers involved. A game against the Colorado Rockies last May was delayed when fans, upset over an umpire’s call, pelted the field with baseballs, bottles, coins and cups of beer. They’re a lot like us’ Rangers, Dripping Springs have lots in common K. JESSIE SLATEN/Herald-Zeitung Ranger pitcher Cody Fuller got in some batting practice Wednesday in preparation for Thursday’s game with Dripping Springs. Fuller will be the starting pitcher for Smithson Valley in the 4A quarterfinal round of regional playoffs at South West Texas State University. Games begin at 7:30 p.m. By Mike Moguin Sports Editor When you look in the mirror, you know the first thing you see is you. That’s what the Smithson Valley baseball team sees — a mirror image of itself as it looks at its next opponent, Dripping Springs. “From what I’ve heard, they’re like us,” pitcher J. D. Reininger said. Smithson Valley (22-6-1, No. IO in the state) and Dripping Springs (28-5, No. 7) are scheduled to square off in a best two-out-of-three series in the Class 4A Baseball Regional Quarterfinal playoff round. Games I and 2 will be played at 7:30 p.m. today and Friday at Bobcat Field on the campus of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. If the teams split the first two games, a Game 3 will be played at I p.m. Saturday at Bobcat Field. “They have some role players in their line-up who can bunt,” said Smithson Valley coach Matt Gustafson. “They like to hit, run and squeeze and that sounds just K. JESSIE SLATEN/Herald-Zeitung J.D. Reininger “umps” while Kyle Mandelbaum catches during a break at Wednesday’s Ranger practice. Reininger will pitch in Friday’s match-up with Dripping Springs. like us.” The Tigers will provide the biggest challenge of any team the Rangers have played all season. “They seem to have a few trick plays and I’m sure they’ll try to take away our bunts,” pitcher Cody Fuller said. Leading hitters for Dripping Springs are Wade Townsend with a batting average of .435; Bryan Herrera, .397; Brian Hendrickson, .358; Matt Hightower, .326; and Nick Sloan and Tony Salazar, each of whom stand at .313. Dripping Springs, which advanced to the regional quarterfinal round after sweeping Hays last week, also has a solid pitching staff, Gustafson said. “They have a righthander in Townsend (3-2) who throws as hard as Bradley George (Canyon pitcher). Their No. 2 guy is a lefty Herrera (8-2), who I feel is their best pitcher and mixes the ball well and hits his spots. “I think what you’ll see is two teams who are similar, except their overall advantage is pitching.” Fuller (8-2) and Reininger (8-1) are in the pitching rotation for the playoffs. Fuller will start today’s game while Reininger is scheduled for Friday’s game. . Both Fuller and Reininger played big roles in each of Smithson See SVHS/2B sweep Devil Rays ARLINGTON (AP) — Frank Catalanotto had a career-high five hits and Ivan Rodriguez went 3-for-4 as the Texas Rangers beat Tampa Bay 11-6 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep. Catalanotto, who made his first start since April 21, is the third player in Rangers history with eight straight hits and has reached base 11 consecutive times. Rodriguez, the defending American League MVP, is 18-for-32 during a nine-game hitting streak. Catalanotto, activated from the disabled list Monday after recovering from a groin injury, started in place of first baseman David Segui, scratched from the lineup because of the flu. Rookie Mike Lamb had a two-run triple in a four-run first for the Rangers, who’ve won six of their last eight. Tampa Bay’s Fred McGriff had his 34th two-homer game, including his seventh career grand slam in the fifth to narrow Texas’ lead to 8-5. Tampa Bay has lost five straight. With 398 career homers, McGriff is tied with Dale Murphy for 32nd on the career list and is one behind No. 31 Al Kaline. Tim Crabtree (1-1) pitched 4 2-3 relief innings for the victory, allowing one run and three hits. Chad Curtis got Texas’ four-run first underway against Bryan Rekar (0-2) with his fifth homer, a one-out solo shot into the upper deck in right field. Curtis became the first right-handed hitter in the seven-year history of The Ballpark in Arlington to reach the second tier in right field. Violent melee breaks out at soccer match COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Riot police fired tear gas into a crowd of brawling English and Turkish soccer fans Wednesday after at least three people were stabbed in violence surrounding the UEFA Cup final. Turkey’s Galatasaray beat London Arsenal 4-1 in a penalty shootout after the game ended 0-0 after overtime. Galatasaray is the first Turkish club to win one of Europe’s two major championships. Police chief superintendent Mogins Lauridsen said a Dutch man who was stabbed in the stomach was in serious condition, and a Turkish man and an English fan sustained superficial stab wounds in the fighting that broke out in the late afternoon. At least 26 were arrested and five others were seriously injured in the afternoon melee, including head injuries, a broken ankle and one person whose ear was partially severed, Lauridsen said. O’Neill breaks Mary T’s final record SYDNEY, Australia (AP)—After 19 years, it’s goodbye Mary T. Swimming finally has a new Madame Butterfly. In just 2 minutes, 5.81 seconds Wednesday, Susie O’Neill erased swimming’s oldest record in the 200-meter butterfly and part of Mary T. Meagher’s legend with it. Backed by a crowd of 10,000-plus, the 26-year-old Australian shaved 0.15 off the longest-standing world record in the sport after six years of frustratingly close calls. O’Neill had just turned 8 years old when Meagher set the world record of 2:05.96 on Aug. 13, 1981 at Brown Deer, Wis. Now with Olympic and world championship gold medals to her credit, and still possessing Meagher’s autograph that she gained as a stajTy-eyed teen, O’Neill secured the only prize she thought might elude her. “Finally,” the 26-year-old said after a celebratory dance on the pool deck following the record-setting effort in the finals of the Australian Olympic trials. “I saw the time and saw the world record flash up. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.” O’Neill’s initial reaction was to punch the air. She just managed to hold back the tears. In Peachtree City, Ga., where she lives with her husband and two children, Meagher praised O’Neill’s perseverance “There’s a sadness, a sentimentality that my name is no longer in the record books,” said the former champion, now 35 and known by her married name of Mary Plant. “I’m happy where I am now,” she added. “It definite ly puts a finality to my swimming career.” The former star, who was widely known just as Mary T. and picked up the nickname “Madame Butterfly” as she dominated the event in the early 1980s, said the record could not have gone to a more deserving swimmer. “She missed it a few times but kept her head down and kept working and finally did it, so all the credit goes to her,” the American said. “I couldn’t ask for a better way to have that door in my life closed.” Both of Meagher’s long-standing butterfly records have fallen at the Sydney International Aquatic Center, which will be the swimming venue for the 2000 Olympics. American Jenny Thompson broke the 18-year-old IOO butterfly record at the Pan Pacific Championships in August last year. ;
