w m v ' c THE PALM BEACH POST TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1991 5C AL Boxes NL Boxes Woods, Laker lead WPB Expos 64 Florida State League But I don't feel bad," Langbehn said. Mets manager John Tamargoj felt that the Mets' problems were i more offensive than defensive. ! "You don't hit, you don't win," J Tamargo said. "Anytime I send, Gregg Langbehn out there, I've got i a chance to win. Give the kid two or three runs and let him pitch re-j laxed. That's a different ball-' game." The Astros added three runs in the seventh. J WPB 6, Miami 4 j Niemann felt that Langbehn threw well. "He pitched way too well to have that kind of line score," Niemann said. After getting Orlando Miller to ground out to end the sixth, Langbehn faced two batters in the seventh, allowing singles to Jeff Ball and Ed Renteria before being relieved by Joe McCann. Langbehn allowed five runs on six hits, walked one and struck out one. "You look at my line score and you say, 'Man, he pitched like crap'. Osceola 9, St. Lucie 1 OSCEOLA ST.

Troy Ricker and Scott Davison each had three hits for the Expos. Doug Bochtler, a John I. Leonard High School graduate, was the winning pitcher. He improved his record to 9-8. Chris Bushing pitched 3 shutout innings for his sixth save for West Palm Beach. The Expos (23-16) have won eight of their last 10 games and will host the Miracle tonight at 7:05. Joe Eischen (5-10) will start for the Expos. Tom Michno (11-9) will pitch for Miami (20-23). Osceola 9, St. Lucie 1 PORT ST.

T 2:25. A 591. Mets starting pitcher Gregg Langbehn (8-10) took the loss, snapping a six-game winning streak. He limited Osceola to one hit and faced the minimum number of batters through five innings before giving up three runs on three hits in the sixth. With one out, Langbehn walked Jimmy Bell, but Bell was thrown out at second on Perry Berry's fielder's choice. Berry barely beat out the throw to first to avoid the double play. Brian Hunter's bunt single and Paul Rodgers single loaded the bases, and Gershon Dallas hit a three-run triple to center field. "I don't feel bad," Langbehn said. "I was cruising through the first five innings. I had a close call on the double play ball, a bunt, and a single off my glove. I fell behind (to Dallas) 2-0, and tried to make a good pitch right at the knees but he went down and got it. That was quick. All of a sudden it was 3-0." St. Lucie pitching coach Randy ! Cubs impressed with Hawblitzel's maturity ..; ' - . v, HAWBLITZELfrom 1C leagues in victories doesn't matter unless it results in him pitching at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Since that hasn't happened yet, there's no reason to get excited. "I just try to stay focused on the game and nothing else," he said. "I don't let outside things get into it. I really don't make goals for myself. My goal is one game ahead of me." That must be a good strategy because Hawblitzel is two levels ahead of his peers. At 19, the John I. Leonard High School graduate is one of the youngest players in Class AA. He was promoted last week, after going 15-2 with a 2.28 ERA at Class A Winston-Salem. "If we'd have left him there, he could have won 20," Harford said. "The reason he's where he is is he seems to have the presence and command you look for in the big leagues at a very young age." That translates to maturity beyond his years. "The real success of Ryan Hawblitzel is that mentally he just isn't a 19-year-old kid," Harford said. "He has a good grasp of pitching and a good idea of how to set up a hitter, which is really half the battle." Besides talent, another key factor in a player's development is how he handles success. In Hawblitzel's case, it's not too tough to handle it when you barely realize it. "If I'm mature, it's probably because of my dad," Hawblitzel said. "Not getting flustered definitely comes from my dad. Even whenever I was pitching when I was little, even if I'd get hit hard, he'd tell me, 'Don't let it affect you i J .r " K f -1 Yankees 7, Tigers 5 new YORK I Williams cf $di 2D MattinglY lb Han Hakes c Sheridan if Waasdh Espmcua ss .

He j signed for a $110,000 bonus. If he continues at his current pace, that j may look like a bargain. The Cubs' j choice is looking smart. - "Nobody's right or wrong j yet," Harford said. "The final proof j is him one day pitching in the. major leagues. He's 19 years old. ' Very young. Still physically imma- J ture. He's blossomed into a pretty good pitcher, and he'll get quicker j and stronger as he grows." Strength and velocity would complete a very talented pitching j package. Harford describes Hawb-1 litzel's fastball as "average to be-' low. ! "But that doesn't worry me," he j said. "He's got time to develop that. 1 The real beauty of Ryan Hawblitzel ' is his impressive command of off- speed stuff. He just knows how to i pitch." j Hawblitzel admits he's done ; better than he expected. But his; recent promotion to Class AAJ leaves him no chance to rest on his J success. ' t "Now that I'm here in double-A, ! it's like I got kicked down again," J he said. Hawblitzel has no decision ; in two starts, allowing six runs in 11 innings and striking out 10. "I: have to start all over. Whenever I j was in Winston-Salem, I didn't think of myself as an ace, and I' certainly don't feel like an ace here." J It doesn't matter if he feels like 1 one as long as he continues to pitch j like one. Harford doesn't see that i changing. "As he matures and gets stron-; ger," he said, "I believe you'll see even better." advance Fire Fighters are sponsoring a scramble golf tournament Aug. 18 at 1:30 p.m. at Wycliffe Golf St Country Club.

Mark Gadwell, a 6-foot-2, OFFSHORE Dolphin remain the mainstay for ocean anglers, with the better concentrations of fish holding along the weed lines 15-20 miles out from Boca Raton to Jupiter. We are seeing an increase in the size of the dolphin being boated, as eight fish over 28 pounds were weighed in during this weekend's CAST Palm Beach Open Fishing Tournament. Henry Parker of Augie's Tackle Shop in Jensen Beach reports scattered dolphin and wahoo in 200-400 feet of water, and cobia to 43-pounds on the Six-Mile Reef. Bottom fishing has also picked up off Boynton, where mutton snapper to 14-pounds will take dead bait fished on the reef line south of the Inlet In 90-feet of water, from the Boynton Ledges to the Gulfstream Clubhouse, said Bob Spickler of Perks In Lantana. Snook and tarpon remain plentiful along the beaches of Palm Beach and Martin counties, where they're feeding off the immense schools of missouki croakers that will be migrating out of the area by the end of the month. INSHORE Tarpon are abundant, but loosely schooled In the Intracoastal from Boca Raton to Jupiter, with fish even moving up to the Boynton spillway said inshore guide Tom Ryan. Live greenies are the bait of choice for the tarpon, and there are some large Jacks working the seawall south of the Royal Palm Bridge at first light. Jumbo jack crevalle to 40-pounds can also be found crashing the wall off High Point, near the Crossroads in Stuart. Trout fishing is on the slow side in the Indian River, but flounder are striking live mullet fished close to the pilings of the Jensen Beach Causeway. FRESHWATER The hot weather over the last two days has slowed bass fishing on the south end of the lake, but there are a few nice fish hitting worms flipped in the pockets of the inside grass lines off Clewiston, said Dick Williams of Jolly Roger Tackle Shop. Over on Lake Ida, David Fairgrade released 1 1 bass to 5 pounds on Monday by soaking live shad along the north shoreline of the lake. Panfish are becoming scarcer by the day with the decreasing moon, but diehard fishermen soaking minnows after dark will find a few nice speckled perch in the deep holes on the south end of the lake, and bream in the rim canal at first light. BEST BET Calm winds in the early morning hours present a classic opportunity to catch tarpon along the beaches from dawn to 1 0 a.m. Fill your livewell with greenies or croakers, then run along the shoreline, looking for rolling fish. Dead bait may work better, If the fish are holding tight in one location. Special to The Palm Beach Post SAN JOSE, Calif.
