I discovered Iris Murdoch when I was hitting the books in a local library and I haven’t heard about “The most British woman author” before. So, this is her first book I’ve read and also her first published novel which is a good place to start. What makes Murdoch a remarkable novelist is that not […]

Rodriguez starting pitcher Kyle Boll delivers the pitch as third baseman Jack Metcho charges toward home in a bunt situation at Will C. Wood high on Wednesday. (Matt Sieger — The Reporter) Nathan Garza thought he would just be cheering on the Rodriguez High baseball team from the dugout on Wednesday against Will C. Wood. Connor Dikitanan, who has been alternating with Garza behind the plate, got the start. But Garza got called in to pinch hit in a crucial situation and hit an RBI double to launch a three-run fifth-inning rally that propelled the Mustangs to a 5-1 win at Wood. Rodriguez is now 8-3 in the Monticello Empire League, Wood 4-7. This was the second of three games between the two teams this week. The Mustangs won 7-4 on Monday. The two teams will go at it again Friday at Rodriguez. With the Mustangs trailing 1-0 in the the fifth, Jack Metcho led off with a single up the middle, advanced to second on a wild pitch and to third on a perfect sacrifice bunt by Dikitanen. Reilly Ramirez was scheduled to hit, but Rodriguez coach Tom Ledda called Garza’s number. “Reilly drives the ball, especially in the gaps, and he scores runs,” Garza said. “I honestly wasn’t expecting it at all (to pinch hit). It was a surprise.” Ledda explained his reasoning. “It was a big series, a big situation,” the coach said. “Garza’s a guy that has some power. And he’s been swinging the bat really, really well… We needed to execute and hit a ball in the air. And there was no doubt in my mind he was going to execute there for us.” If you can believe Garza, he wasn’t quite as confident. “That at bat I don’t really remember,” he said. “I kind of blacked out. The emotions were everywhere, I kind of closed my eyes and swung as hard as I could. And I got lucky and I hit the ball.” He belted a run-scoring double to tie the game at 1-all. Carlvessi Light, the Mustangs’ leadoff batter who had reached on walks his first two times up, then stepped to the plate. “Vessi’s just a natural athlete,” Ledda said. “He gets on base for us. He’s been doing it all year. You think he’s a guy that’s just going to Punch and Judy it or get a walk, and then he’ll hit a double.” Or, in this case, a triple. The junior shortstop launched a deep drive to left center and legged it out for a three-bagger to score Garza and give Rodriguez the lead. That knocked Wood starter Blake Morin, who had held the Mustangs to one hit through four innings, out of the game. When Light scored on an infield error, Rodriguez led 3-1. Ledda also praised Metcho, who started the three-run rally. He was called up to the varsity on April 13. After six games he is hitting .471. “He’s been playing the last couple of weeks for us and been doing a great job,” said the coach. Boll, a junior right-hander, worked six strong innings for the Mustangs to earn the win, allowing six hits, walking one, striking out four and allowing one unearned run. “I felt good, just keeping it in the strike zone,” he said. “Sixth inning I knew I was getting a little tired, so that’s when I let my coach know.” Nate Mandrick threw a 1-2-3 seventh inning for the save. “Kyle Boll’s been dominant all year long,” Ledda said. “He’s one of those guys that kind of flies under the radar because he doesn’t have high velocity, but he throws three pitches for strikes, he competes.” Boll also had some terrific defensive help from center fielder D.J. Scott in the bottom of the sixth with Wood still trailing 3-1. Dylan Fuller led off with a single up the middle. That brought up cleanup man Jakob Carr. “We were going to sac bunt to get Fuller over and play for one run in the sixth and then one in the seventh,” said Wood coach Nick Voight. But when Carr showed bunt on the first pitch and took it for a ball, Voight changed strategy. “I figured after that they were going to try to give him a fastball,” the coach said, noting that Carr is a good fastball hitter. Carr drove Boll’s next offering to deep center. Scott ran full-out, back and to his right and at the last minute, his back practically to home plate, reached out and made a backhanded grab to rob Carr of what almost certainly would have been a triple. In the seventh, Scott and Diego Moreno both hit RBI singles to ice the game for the final 5-1 margin. “I thought overall we hit the ball well today,” Voight said. “We hit it hard. A lot of them were at people but what are you going to do? It is baseball. Not all of them are going to fall for you.” One bright spot for the Wildcats is that Matt Carrier, their hard-hitting third baseman and No. 1 pitcher, is due back Friday after missing most of the MEL season due to a groin injury.

SHE spent 27 years unconscious before waking up — and incredibly, Munira Abdulla is just one coma victim who has experienced a miracle recovery. The mum was in a car crash in the United Arab Emirates in 1991 that left her in what doctors considered a permanent vegetative state. Earlier this week Munira Abdulla woke after spending 27 years in a coma But this week it was revealed that she woke up and said “Omar” — the name of her son who survived the accident. Munira’s amazing turnaround has left people pondering what it feels like to emerge from a coma — and how it can seem the world has totally changed. EMMA PIETRAS and BELLA BATTLE speak to survivors who came back against all odds. ‘When I woke up I thought Princess Diana was still alive’ Candace Emptage, 45, six weeks in coma Candace Emptage spent six weeks in a coma after being involved in a car accident WHEN Candace Emptage emerged from a six-week coma in 2010, she thought it was the 1990s. She had no idea who her daughter was, didn’t know her parents had divorced several years earlier and had no memory of Princess Diana dying. Candace was 36 when she lost control of her car after swerving to avoid an animal and crashed into an ambulance. Miraculously, the former model didn’t break any bones due to having hypermobility – a condition that makes joints more ­flexible. But the accident left her with a ­traumatic brain injury and in a coma. Candace had to learn how to walk and talk again after suffering a ­traumatic brain injury While in Newcastle General Hospital, she was able to hear what the doctors were saying yet was unable to react in any way. Candace, from Co Durham, says: “My parents have been shocked by what I say I heard because I could have heard those things only from the coma. “The consultants were talking over my bed about my outcome and medication. I couldn’t respond. I couldn’t move my body or talk but I could hear.” ­Candace’s family had gathered around her to say goodbye as doctors prepared to switch off her life support machine. Then she suddenly moved her finger. Cadace, a former model, didn’t break any bones due to having hypermobility – a condition that makes joints more ­flexible But Candace says: “You don’t just come out of a coma like people think. It took months for me. “At first I didn’t remember I had a daughter and when I saw her I asked, ‘Who is that?’ “She was 13 and you can imagine how that destroyed her.” Candace thought she was 22 and the Spice Girls still topped the charts. Candace and her daughter Maddi, who was 13 when she had her accident Candace had to be told about Princess Diana’s death She says: “I didn’t know Michael Jackson or Princess Diana had died. Maddi, my daughter, told me how Diana died. It was really upsetting. “I thought my parents were still ­married but they had divorced about 15 years earlier. The first time I heard it I was like a kid.” Single Candace cannot work due to her brain injury but has learned to walk and talk again. ‘I felt scared. I had no idea of my age. I didn’t know if I was ten or 100’ Jack Martindale, 30, three months Jack Martindale, 30, spent three months in a coma after a hit-and-run WHILE celebrating New Year’s Eve with pals, 21-year-old Jack Martindale was mowed down by a speeding car in a hit-and-run that shattered his skull in 30 places. Jack says: “When I came out of my coma after three months and saw Mum and Dad, I thought they were too young to be my ­parents. I had no idea of my age and didn’t know if I was ten or 100. “I felt scared not being able to remember stretches of my past and I had no idea what type of person I was. “That information was filled in by friends, family and social media. “I found out I’d missed my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary and completing my final term at York uni.” Jack had no idea what age he was when he emerged from his coma His girlfriend Chelsea Cannon, 19, and pal Carrie Maclaren, 20, died as a result of the 2010 crash. Sam Gellor, 21, and Tom Williams, 20, were injured but survived. Jack says: “Tom and Sam came to visit me often, then eventually I realised I hadn’t seen Chelsea and Carrie. “I was told Carrie had died at the scene and Chelsea had spent three months in a coma like me. But instead of waking up, she died.” Jack relearned how to walk, talk and eat as part of his miracle recovery. Despite his speech and coordination still being impaired, he has written two books about his experience and trained as a bereavement therapist.
