New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 21, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Briefly Tigers wipeout Baltimore, 14-1 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Detroit Tigers, needing to cover a lot of ground in a short time, rolled back into the Motor City and immediately cranked into high gear. Facing the team they need to beat. Detroit tied the major-league record with IO consecutive hits during an 11-run first inning that sprung the Tigers onto a 14-1 rout of the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday night. The game, shortened to five innings by rain, was to have been the opener of a twi-night double-header. Second-place Detroit trails the Orioles by 64 games in the American League East and the teams are scheduled to meet in a twi-nighter today and a single game Thursday. “I guess everybody's got us counted out of this, so we might as well go out and take it to 'em/’ remarked Tigers' Manager Sparky Anderson. “What have we got to lose?” In other AL games, Toronto beat Seattle 7-3, Milwaukee clubbed Cleveland 11-7, New York nipped Boston 3-2, California downed Kansas City 6-4 and Texas rallied past Oakland 3-2. Minnesota atSportsWorldZoeller takes aim at LaJet title ABILENE (AP) — Fuzzy Zoeller, the most consistent player on the PGA Tour this year, will attempt to add to his new money-winning lead this week in the $350,000 LaJet Goers Classic. Rex Caldwell, for one, thinks he will do it. “Fuzzy has been the No. I player this year," said Caldwell, whose last-gasp bid in the final round of the Las Vegas Pro Celebrity Classic fell just short last weekend. “Everytime you look at a leader board, week after week, there’s Fuzzy, first or second, fourth or fifth, somewhere around the lead." Caldwell closed to within two shots of Zoeller with two holes to play at Las Vegas, but Zoeller held on and scored his second victory of the season, a triumph that was worth $135,000. The biggest check offered (rn the tour this year pushed his money winnings for the season to $413,852, and enabled him to move from fifth on the list to first, a slender $429 in front of Hal Sutton. Chicago was rained out. Orioles' starter Dennis Martinez, 7-15, retired the first Detroit batter before the avalanche.Rangers 3, A's 2 In Texas, pinch hitter Bobby Jones jolted Oakland with a two-run homer to cap a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning. Jones’ first home run of the season came with one out off Oakland reliever Keith Atherton, 2-4. With one out in the ninth, Bill Stein doubled. Pete O’Brien singled home Stein and then Jones, batting for Bucky Dent, homered to right. Charlie Hough, 15-12, gave up eight hits for his fifth consecutive victory and 10th complete game.Blue Jays I. Mariners 3 Willie Upshaw's two-run single gave him 101 runs batted in this season, making him the first Toronto player to reach the century mark in the team’s seven-year history. Upshaw’s hit came during a four-run third inningLouisiana may lose Texas League team SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Louisiana may lose its only professional baseball team if voters here reject a $3.5 million November bond proposal to build a new stadium, said Taylor F. Moore, president of the Texas League’s Shreveport Captains. Moore's statement came after the city council in neighboring Bossier City failed to meet Tuesday’s deadline for putting a $2 million stadium bond proposal on that city’s Nov. 19 ballot.Bills fils suit to stop Cribbs BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills of the National Football League have filed a lawsuit seeking to prevent running back Joe Cribbs from joining the United States Football League. The Bills claim that their contract with Cribbs, who signed with the Birmingham Stallions, allows the team to retain the running back if they match that included Jorge Orta’s two-run homer, his ninth.Brewers 11, Indians 7 Cecil Cooper had four of Milwaukee's 20 hits as the Brewers rallied from a 7*0 deficit to end their 10-game losing streak. The losing string matched the longest in the franchise's history.Yankees 3, Rad Sox 2 Reliever Rich Goosage pitched 2 2-3 sparkling innings to earn his 21st save. Gossage took over for John Montefusco, 3-0, in the seventh after the host Red Sox had pulled within 3-2. Gossage struck out Jim Rice and Tony Armas on six pitches to end the inning.Angels 6, Royals 4 Doug DeCinces belted a two-run double in the first inning and visiting California took advantage of six Kansas City errors. any new contract proposed by another team.Cougar coach inspires team HOUSTON (AP) — University of Houston Coach Bill Yeoman allows himself three temper tantrums per season and after last week’s scare against I .amar, he has two performances remaining. “Coach got pretty tight," flanker David Roberson said, referring to Yeoman's halftime oratory. “He started knocking things over. We thought he might start knocking some of us over ” Yeoman vented his feelings at with Ms heavily favored Cougars trailing the Cardinals 14-7. Following his pointed comments, the Cougars returned to blast to a 42-21 lead and then held on for a 42-35 victory. “After having this experience, we have learned that we can’t look past anybody,” Roberson said. “We won’t let that happen any more. We just didn’t have the right frame of mind against Lamar. We should have been thinking about them from Sunday before the game.” Scoreboard New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Wednesday, September 21,1983 8A Local volleyball squads prepare for district play playing — and adding a spark to the offense. “We’ve got to have her in there,” Davidson said. “She’s the sparkplug for the whole team.” Cappel, the only returning varsity player, has been the most consistent hitter and scorer for the Rangerettes, but the rest of the team has begun to balance out the scoring. The team has also started to balance out aaa whole. “We had a long talk after the Canyon match (a three-game loss) about adjusting to new situations,” Davidson said. “They used to always come up with excuses, but they know that there aren’t any excuses now — they just have to do it. “After our long talk, they started to show a little maturity and they started to play more like a varsity team.”New Braunfels Coach Claudia Perry's team has been on a two-month rollercoaster ride, going up and down and up and down. The Unicorns will play well, as the did in a three-game loss to powerful Seguin last Friday in the San Marcos tournament, and then hit the skids, as they did the next day against Smithson Valley. Perry has been drilling the Unicorns hard in the fundamentals — they served and received for an entire practice session earlier this month — and they seem to be responding Kim Wright has emerged as New Braunfels' top scorer, but the team has been fairly balanced. Teresa Thomas, who is perfecting a hard-to-handle floater serve, is close behind, and Heather Seay and Dawn Cook have also been top scorers. Donna Winkler and Kelly Wright have been New Braunfels’ setters all season, with Winkler, a senior, posting a few more assists. “I see certain individuals getting stronger and stronger all the time," Perry noted. “We're still inconsistent, though. “At least you can say we haven’t reached our peak yet. I hope that happens in district.” New Braunfels has a motivation to beat Lockhart, as the Lady Lions defeated the Unicorns in the Fraulein Volleyfest.Canyon Canyon has to be the most settled of the three local teams, with a world of experience back from last year's team. And the Cougarettes have shown it, winning the consolation bracket in the tough San Marcos tournament last weekend and reaching the finals of the Seguin tournament. The Cougarettes have spread the storing around this season, with Suzie Cuddy holding a slight edge in kills and points over Kim Rittman. Stephanie Burch and Leona Soechting. Klieg, who had to take over the setting duties when Carol Friedel was hurt last week, leads the team in aces. Coach Donna Boe hie has added two players from the junior varsity, Lynn Smeal and Nancy Tieken, to give the Cougarettes a little more size rn the front line The sophomores responded with good performances in the tournament, Boehle said. Canyon is open Thursday night and faces Hays at home Tuesday.Twosome takes NBG A tourney Hie team af Ray Stodge and Charlie Smith fired a 59 to take the New Braunfels Golf Association two-man team bettor-ball Nassau tournament at the Lands Park Golf Course.

By DAVID KING Sports editor New Braunfels and Smithson Valley are on the way to getting settled and Canyon meets Open Date when district volleyball play opens Thursday. The young Unicorns, 10-8 on the season, travel to Lockhart to open District 13-4A play, while red-hot Canyon has the day off. Defending District 26-3A champion Smithson Valley faces Southside, last year’s district runner-up, at home. The Rangerettes are 12-10. All three teams have come a long way from the dog days of August — and all three coaches hope it's been far enough.NBMS sweepsSen Mercoe New Braunfels Middle School’s girls' basketball teams swept four games from San Marcos Tuesday rn San Marcos.

Staff photo by John N San tar as New Braunfels TeresaSmithson Valley The Rangerettes, with only one player with varsity experience coming back, have struggled through their non-district schedule. In fact, things got so bad during the Fraulein Volleyfest that Coach Louise Davidson decided to scrap her offense and defense and start over. The Rangerettes are now running a 5-1 offense, meaning they have one setter on the floor — usually Shalyn Hall. “We just didn’t have as many setters as I thought we would,” Davidson said. “And she (Hall) has adjusted to it pretty well.” Davidson will continue to use a lot of players in district play, but her starting lineup of Hall, Trad Felch, Christine Lehmann, Julie Cappel, Ten Mooney and Kim Wagner should stay fairly consistent. Davidson will also look for Robin Delavan and Rhonda Platt to come off the bench often and Laurie Kneupper, Sandi Bell and Tricia Munsell to step in when needed.
