Tangi Finance beats Hanna struction By DUANE E. HARRIS Sports Editor Tangi Finance pulled home another win over Hanna Construction Wednes- day, May 15 by a score of 12-8. "We thought it would be close but it wasn&apos;t so tough," remarked Tangi pitcher Jason Childers immediately following the game in which Jason pitched four of six innings for 10 walks, four strike outs and allowed four base hits. Those 12 runs for Tangi were scored by Jason Childers, Kyle Wolfe, Ben Perrin, Trey Shockley, Josh Stilley, Craig Nelson, Jeremy Schnell, Jeff Douglas and Clint Hatfield. At the plate for Tangi Kyle Wolfe, Ben Penin and Josh Stilley led the team in scoring with two runs each. Also making the distance were Jason Childers, Trey Shockley, Craig Nelson, Jeremy Schnell, Jeff Douglas and Clint Hatfield with one run each. Adding to the whopping list of 12 straight RBI's were Trey Shockley, Josh Stilley, Jeremy Schnell and Jeff Douglas who led with two ribeyes each How does a team score 12 runs on five hits? "They walked us," commented Tangi secondary pitcher Kyle Wolfe who was credited with pitching four strike outs in the two innings he pitched Kyle based his theory on the fact that Hanna walked the Tangi team 13 times. To everyone's surprise, Tangi walked Hanna also. Tangi's pitchers walked 16 batters and allowed only five hits but Love is a journey Not a destination Ole Hardhicle equaled 11 strike outs each. "Our mistakes came at a critical time," remarked coach Wayne Peltier when his team fell behind in, the final frame. Through the combined efforts of four pitchers, Hanna threw 16 walks and 11 strike outs. Like clockwork, Hanna sent Chris Bowman, Steve Henderson, Brad Womer and Jack Gabriel to the mound. Aaron Navarre and Chris Thibo- deaux were the high scorers with two The outer portions of the city's wide sidewalk on the 100 block of West Pine are scheduled to be rebuilt as part of the upcoming segment of highway improvements expected to begin this week or next. (Times Photo i, |1 FROM PAGE ONE dria this past weekend. (But please do speak very softly). Quote of the Week, Linda Poche of South Pass: "Oh, they were asking me about that mermaid!" Speaking of seafood, Rod and Penny down at Whitey's in The Ponchatoula Mall have shrimps that just do not live up to their name - They're big! And speaking of Manchac, Miss Willie Branch was spotted there with Joel Smith and Jeanne Zaleski. (Did I see you on tiie water slide Sunday at Yogi Bear Park?) That's where this gator went to see what proved to be some sights. Pinchpenny hit the pool in his lose-weight-or-else bikini (a near explosion of laughter and flying fat). And ace hooper Lance Vitter was on hand to accept his top sports honors dressed as a not all that bad looking girl. (I was a little afraid of Yogi, but Boo-Boo looked like a nice snack). Think there's a building boom going on? Hardy temporarily ran out of door knobs this week. That means a whole lot of new walls have been going up, the way I figure it. (l've got cage walls here at the pond for much the same reason - humans). Smitty, is it true son Butch got started with reptiles when, as a baby, you gave him his first rattler instead of a rattle? Why is Peck Edwards floating five feet above the roof of his tuna tower these days (hint: she'sno fish). Speaking of boats, ask Doc about the Gideon Navy. Boat captain Bob Young came by the cage stone cold sober and told me the most amazing story I have ever heard. He said that he rescued a deer in trouble. (At first I too thought he just misspelled dear when he was speaking to me, and since as you may or may not have noticed, this alligator is somewhat unflappable, I wasn't really shook up by the fact the city's official bagpiper rescued Bambi; big deal. But read on). It seems Bambi was three miles out to sea off the shore in East Bay about 20 miles south of Venice. It was about 7 p.m. and Captain Bob was bringing in a crew when he spotted the deer in her death throes. The oil men aboard had other ideas. They lashed ropes around Bambi and brought her aboard, where she lay in a heap, totally exhausted and unable to rise. After a long rest ashore she was able to lick the rough hands that saved her before troting off to high ground. Captain Bob told this reptile he thinks a swift offshore current did the job on his dear friend. Hey, something's been bothering me. Dad before me probably never noticed because after awhile ole alligators like old humans just kinda get used to their surroundings. Not so Junior! Do you see that ugly ole utility pole outside my cage, the one with the ugly dead viney bush clinging to it? You probably see it on human eye level, figure it looks important, and walk on by, content that the blight at the front of my cage is somehow necessary. It is not. Look up. The pole is connected to absolutely nothing, except the ugly dead viney buh again .... again The pole is connected to absolutely nothing, except the ugly dead viney bush that looks like the exact opposite of My Ponchatoula. It blocks the view of the alligator and the Country Market and the mail Car Art Gallery and it is ugly, ugly, ugly, and Jabo has a nifty chain saw (hint, hint). There is one special girl who is always welcome at my cage (unless she should be sitting in her desk at D.C. Reeves at the time). That's Sammy Lynn Relan, Sambo's pride and joy, and Ole Hardhide's. (Stop by Ponchatoula Feed & Seed, pick up a chick, and come on by for a visit honey, now that school's about out. runs each and Steve Henderson, Brad Womer, Herman Newall and Clint Mollere each added one. Steve Henderson led the team in RBI's with two and Aaron Navarre, Chris Thibodeaux, Mike Smith and Wade Peltier attributed one each to the list. Other Hanna players playing superior ball were Chad Richard. Sonny Harman, Bradley Milton, Clint Mollere and John Green.
