Kerrville pounded Fredericksburg 14-5 in the championship game at Antler Park. Rain had played havoc with the tournament schedule over the past couple days. Included was a hasty excursion to Llano on Monday for a game that was never played. But nothing much seemed to bother the Kerrville crew as it racked up a perfect 4-0 mark in tournament play. Kerrville started quickly, absorbed a big counter-punch by Fredericksburg, then cruised on to victory. Kerrville took advantage of the control problems of Fredericksburg starter Spencer Neffendorf, who walked the first two batters, then hit the next two hitters. Brian Compton got credit for the game's first RBI by absorbing a fastball in the ribs from Neffendorf. David Moreau, in his very first plate ap- pearance of the tourney due to a broken arm, drilled a two-run single to center field. Kerrville pushed its lead to 4-0 in the second on Cullen Friedrich's RBI single. After breezing through the first three innings, Kerrville starter Brad Compton ran into major trouble in the fourth. Fredericksburg racked up four runs on six hits, including three extra base blows — a double by Eli Wassenich, a triple by Chris Feller and, the biggie, a three-run blast over the right field fence by Jeremy Otters. Fredericksburg kept on hitting the ball well in the fifth inning, but tight Kerrville defense contained the damage to just one run, and things went entirely Kerrville's way after that. A three-run rally with two outs in the fourth gave the lead back to Kerrville. With the bases loaded, Brian Compton reached out to poke an RBI single to left. An error let the second run in, and Kevin Bernhard drilled a run-scoring single. Control problems by Fredericksburg pitchers allowed Kerrville to score three runs on only one hit in the fifth. Daniel Saner romped home on a bad pickoff throw to second, and Greg Galloway slammed a two-run double with the bases loaded, making the score 10-5. Four runs in the fifth were icing on the cake. Again, Fredericksburg hurlers couldn't get the ball over the plate, as the lone hit of the inning was Trey Fackelman's leadoff bunt single. Five walks, a hit batter and an error opened the floodgates for a Kerrville rout Brad Compton survived a nine- hit shelling in the fourth and fifth innings to pitch a complete game victory. He was backed by excellent fielding from his teammates in gaining his second victory of the tournament. Kerrville had only six hits, but 20 runners reached base by either walks or being hit by a pitch. Fredericksburg showed remarkable respect for Kerrville heavy hitter Ryan Balser. He didn't see a strike in five plate appearances, getting hit by the pitch three times and drawing two intentional walks. The Senior All-Stars will now advance to the sectional tournament in Tyler. They open on Friday against the District 31 champion. Kerrville's Brad Compton cuts loose with a fast one. He survived a Fredericksburg explosion. (Photo by B.C.

The Kerrville Major League All- Stars won the District 26 Tournament by downing Fredericksburg 1-4 on Tuesday night at the H.E.B. Field Complex. They did it the hard way, winning three games in the losers bracket, with two of them coming against host Fredericksburg. "We were a little worried after we lost to them on Friday," said manager Steve Caraway. "But we weren't that surprised we won. Last night we had the attitude we wouldn't be beaten." They weren't, thanks largely to pitcher Bryan Robinett. He survived a rough start to dominate Fredericksburg over the final four innings. He allowed five hits, walked three and struck out three. "Bryan did an excellent job after the second inning," said Caraway. "We talked about him being mentally tough, and he decided to take control of the game." A double play in the third frame seemed to do wonders forRobinelt's morale. He faced the minimum number of batters in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings. He was backed by a defense that committed but one error. Robinett was able to win his duel this time around against Fredericksburg ace Jeff White. While was tough, giving up just five hits and striking out five, but he lacked the control had had in his first appearance against Kerrville, allowing ei£bijya.lks and hitting three batters. "Jeff White is a good pitcher," praised Caraway. "He's the type that can gut it up and beat you. But we were able to make him work harder this time." Kerrville took the early lead when Garrett Henwood slammed a two- run single in the first inning. But Fredericksburg answered with two runs in the first and two more in the second. A three-run rally in the fourth gave tl«; lead back to Kerrville. Ross Van Klaveren delivered an RBI single, and a groundout by Ryan Russ brought in another run. White struck out the heavy-hitting Henwood with the bases loaded to prevent an explosion, but he hit Robinett with a pitch with the bases loaded to give Kerrville another run. This was the second straight year for Kerrville to capture the Major League championship. Kerrville will now proceed to the sectional tournament in Austin. They will open on Friday against Round Rock, the winner of District 31. (AP) — Backup quarterbacks in the NFL are worth their weight in gold these days. To the New York Giants, Phil Simms is worth at least $1.6 million. That's the figure the Giants will reportedly be paying Simms as a backup to Jeff Hosteller for the 1992 season. Simms might not be No. 1, but he better be prepared to play — if last season was any indication. A staggering wave of injuries hit the NFL's No. 1 quarterbacks, giving new meaning to the word "backup." Simms, for one, became a starter after Hosteller went down. The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the hardest hit by injuries at ihe quarterback position. They used five quarterbacks, including Jeff Kemp, who also signed a one-year contract on Tuesday. The Minnesota Vikings also signed a backup when Sean Salisbury agreed to a one-year contract. After winning the quarterback job last season. Hosteller started Ihe first 12 games before sustaining a season-ending back injury. He com- pleled 179 of 285 passes for 2,032 yards and five touchdowns. Simms, who will be 37 in November, slarted ihe final four games. He completed 82 of 141 passes for 993 yards, eighl touchdowns and four in- lerceptions in 1991. "I have nolhing but admiration for the way (Simms) has handled every situation he had been in," Giants coach Ray Handley said. Eagles Kemp joined the Eagles before iheir eighlh game lasl season, one day after being placed on waivers by Seattle. This will be his llth NFL season. Last season, Kemp completed 57 of 114 passes for 546 yards and five touchdowns. He also rushed 38 times for 179 yards. Also signing was Jeff Snyder, the Eagles' sixth-round draft choice. The 5-foot-6,170-pound Snyder is a wide receiver and punt returner out of the University of Hawaii. Vikings Salisbury, 29, was elevated to second-string two weeks ago when Minnesota cul Wade Wilson. Wilh top quarterback Rich Gannon unsigned and Wilson now playing for the Atlanta Falcons, Salisbury will be the main man in camp. However, Salisbury knows lhal his NFL CAMPS ROUNDUP first-string status could end as soon as Gannon signs. ' 'I worked hard as a third-stringer. I'll work hard as the backup.-I'll work hard if I'm the starter," 3 he said. "You're not going to get any more out of me." Broncos Camp has just started and Denver already has quarterback problems. Steve Pelluer, the backup to John Elway, has a sore throwing arm, leaving Shawn Moore as the only available quarterback who can throw without restrictions. Redskins Redskins wide receiver Ricky Sanders ended a one-day holdout by signing a two-year contract worth approximately $1.9 million. Lions Kicker Jason Hanson, the Lions' second-round draft pick, has agreed to a a four-year deal. Detroit released kicker Eddie Murray, a 12-year-veteran, two days after the draft. Bengals Already plagued by holdouts, the Bengals have another problem — the irregular heartbeat of linebacker Alfred Williams, last year's No. 1 choice. Williams underwent surgery June 12 in an effort to correct the rapid heartbeat But Dr. Ted Waller, who performed the surgery, said an electrocardiogram disclosed that Williams still has an irregular heartbeat. Williams is to undergo a second operation late this week or early next week in Bethesda, Md. Browns Contract talks between Cleveland and first-round draft pick Tommy Vardell have reached an impasse. Vardcll, a running back, is the Browns' only unsigned draft choice. Colts Running backs Ken Clark and Anthony Johnson both missed Tuesday's workouts at the Colts' camp with injuries. Astros edge Pirates, 4-3 HOUSTON (AP) — Juan Guerrero picked a good lime for his firsi major league homer. Guerrero's homer in the bottom of the 12th inning Tuesday night gave the Houston Astros a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. "1 am just a liltle bit excited. I knew 1 hit it hard, but I didn't think it would go out," Guerrero said. "I don't play enough to think about home runs, but my first one is pretty exciting." "He has some pop in his bat," said Astros manger Art Howe. "That is why we picked him in this draft." The Astros scored three runs in ihe bottom of the ninth to get a 3-3 and send the game into extra innings. Pirates starter Doug Drabek entered the bottom of ihe ninih with a 3-0 lead before allowing consecutive singles by Ernest Riles and Eric Anthony. Stan Belinda came in to relieve Drabek. Ken Caminiti's sacrifice fly drove Riles home with the first run. Pete Incaviglia doubled home Anthony and moved to third on a wild pitch. Casey Candaele then hit a sacrifice fly to complele ihe Ihree-run rally. 1 'One of ihe besl pilchers in baseball was shutting us oul and we had to have a greal rally and we did," said Howe. "We were jusi irying to get someone on base and eel something going in ihe ninth," said Caminiti.
