Sammy Sosa was probably the only person at Olympic Stadium who didn't see how far his latest homer went. Sosa and Fred McGriff hit consecutive homer and Kerry Wood pitched six scoreless innings Monday to lead the Cubs over the Expos, 6-4, at Montreal. Sosa hit his sixth homer of the season in the fifth inning off Carl Pavano (1-2), a drive that struck a cable 120 feet above the left-field wall.

Third baseman Aaron Boone of the Cincinnati Reds has a broken right hand that will sideline him for three to four weeks. Boone was hit on the outside of the right hand by a pitch from Wade Miller of the Houston Astros during the Astros' victory Monday night. X-rays performed shortly after the injury found no fracture. The hand was still extremely sore Tuesday, so Boone was sent for a CAT scan that found a small crack in the hamate bone, which is at the top of the wrist.

Mike McClintock's performance was record-setting, Adrian Brown's was impressive and Mark Algarme's was inspiring for Golden West Wednesday in the Rustlers' Orange Empire Conference track and field meet with Riverside and Fullerton.

After struggling with its ground game in two early-season losses, Golden West rolled up some bigger rushing numbers Saturday and it proved to be just enough to defeat Southwestern, 30-29, in a Mission Conference game at Golden West.

Compared with the millions they pay Tom, Julia or even that guy running for governor of California, Broadway salaries just aren't in the same show-biz league. Yet those unattributed reports swirling through New York newspapers that Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick will each pull down a cool $100,000 a week to return to "The Producers" for a three-month stint could up the paychecks for those few performers who really can sell tickets on Broadway. Can we talk specifics? Well, no.

Adrian Brown bobs as he walks. His wedge-cut hairdo, streaked with orange, sways as he struts. His moves are coated in attitude. When you're fluent in cool, your body language needs no translation. Especially if you're Brown, Huntington Beach's hip-hop hurdler. Though opponents--and some teammates--often brand him as a super cocky kid, Brown says he's really a genuinely good guy. "I'm just regular, everyday Adrian," Brown said. "I'm nice to people, and I like to do good things for them.

Two words constantly raced through Pittsburgh Pirate Manager Gene Lamont's mind during the ninth inning: not again. The Pirates nearly blew a six-run ninth-inning lead for the second consecutive year at Philadelphia before holding on to beat the Phillies, 8-6, on Wednesday night. Last year, the Phillies rallied from a 7-1 deficit in the bottom of the ninth inning in an 8-7 victory in the middle game of a three-game series at Veterans Stadium.

The once-ugly San Diego Padres are playing like champions these days. The Padres defeated the Colorado Rockies, 8-7, Monday night to extend their winning streak to 10, the longest in the majors this year. It wasn't easy, though, as Colorado closed a four-run deficit with two solo home runs by Dante Bichette and a two-run shot by Larry Walker.
