12 MONTROSE VOICE / MAY 16. 1986
M&L Wins Kauffman Tourney
The Marion & Lynn's Rebels will represent the Houston Women's Softball League
at the Women's Gay Softball World Series
in New Haven, Conn., later this summer.
Placing second in the Kauffman Tournament were the Hollywood Bears. Winning third place was the Herricanes.
The Rebels faced the Herricanes early in
the tournament, sending the Herricanes to
the lower bracket. Then Sport fell to the
mighty bats of the Rebels. The Rebels
faced the only other undefeated team left
in the tournament, the Hollywood Bears.
At the end of regulation play, the teams
were tied at 3 runs each. The contest went
to two extra innings, with a final score of
Rebels 6, Bears 4.
The Hollywood Bears then faced the
Herricanes in an exciting game which saw
the Bears win. This set up a re-match for
the final game between the Rebels and the
The Rebels came into the final game
with very strong bats. There were 27 Rebel
hits resulting in a final score of 15-2.

611 Sweeps 2
The first game—well, the Briar Patch
would rather we not talk about it. The 611
won it easily 14-7.
The second though was a cliff-hanger.
At the bottom of the supposed-to-be last
inning, with the score tied 6-6, The611 had
the bases loaded with no outs. You would
think they had it in the bag. All it would
take would be one run, one walk, one anything, and the 611 would win.
Expert field positioning by the BP man
aged to get them out of it. 11 was a quick hit
and the BP double-played them: outon the
force home—and out on third base.
Whew! Now just one more out to go, and
the lead man's back on second base now. It
was no problem.
Top of the eighth, and the Patch is
unable to score. So it's back to bat for The
611. Try it again.
This time it was easy. The 611 again
loaded the bases, and with that pressure
on BP's pitcher once more, he cracked. The
611 won it—by walking. Final, in 8
The other double header ofthe day saw
the powerful Rich's team sweep Dirty Sally's. The first game was easy, 11-2, but
Sally's fought hard the second game to
prove that Rich's is just another team in
our league. Rich's 4, Sally's 3.
The final and fifth game of the day saw
the Montrose Voice edge a win over the
Ranch, .8-7. Nothing spectacular there,
except that the Voice appreciated the win.
And the Ranch certainly could not have
used another loss.
Of course, there's always next time. The
teams play this Sunday, early, at Lawrence Field in the Heights, beginning at
9:00 a.m. To get there, drive out Shepherd
north to 10th Street. Then right on 10th
and right on Lawrence.
