Although he is mainly a catcher, Barnett helped the Jays at third base, first base, designated hitter and pitcher. His forkball was instrumental in firing a five- hitter in the 13-3 championship game victory over the Georgia Astros. Hanks, who will be a senior at Sterling. \vas pleased with his pitching performance in the Palomino World Series. But the results weren't pleasant. South Belt lost twice Monday to a team from San Diego, Calif", to finish second. Hanks came on in relief in both games. •'1 pitched from the second until the seventh in the first game." he said. "I only gave.up two hits, but they scored nine runs off me. It was that kind of game. We were making error after error."

On the road to the World Series, South Belt had to win regional and sectional tournament crowns. Hanks was the starting and winning pitcher in the final game of both events, and he also picked up a victory in relief in the sectional semifinals.

Getting the opportunity to play in a World Series is something Hanks and Barnett will cherish fora long time. HOUSTON (AP) - Ken Caminiti has only been in the major leagues for 30 games, but already he can recognize the chemistry of a winner. "You can smell it," Caminiti said. "A lot of times when we were going bad, I'd notice that we'd get down on ourselves in the dugout. We're not doing that now." Caminiti contributed to Houston's chemistry Wednesday night with a 2-run double in the seventh inning, rallying the Astros to a 2-1 victory over St. Louis. The victory marked Houston's sixth in a row and their 10th straight victory in the Astrodome. "When I first came up, we were hitting the ball but now we're doing all the other things it takes to win," Caminiti said. "Now it's all starting to fall together." Caminiti's game-winner ended a shut out attempt by Cards starter Joe Magrane, who had allowed only a first-inning single by Bill Doran until the seventh inning. Houston starter Bob Knepper. 6-13, walked Vince Coleman to start the game. Coleman went to second on Knepper's wild pitch, took third on Ozzie Smith's groundout and scored on Tom Herr's ground out to shortstop Dale Berra. That stood up until the seventh when Doran and Alan Ashby got singles to start the inning and Kevin Bass reached base as Doran was forced at third base. After Glenn Davis struck out. Caminiti drove a curve by Magrane just out of the reach of right fielder Jim Lindeman, scoring Ashby and Bass. ST.
