Darren Lewis made sure he savored his game-winning hit Tuesday. It might have been his final one of the season. "After tomorrow we don't know what will happen. We could be out until next spring training. That's the worst case," said Lewis, whose two-out, two-run, bases-loaded single in the ninth off Randy Myers lifted the San Francisco Giants to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

A little extra work paid off for Darren Lewis, who ended an 0-for-18 slump with a tie-breaking home run to lead off the seventh inning and lift the Red Sox to a 3-2 victory over Oakland on Tuesday night. "I had three bad games. You have to take it in stride," Lewis said. "I got here early and went to the cage and got some extra work in. It paid off." The homer was the seventh of the season for Lewis, hardly a home run threat, and only the 21st of his career in just over 1,300 at-bats.

Darren Lewis, the Chicago Bears' sixth-round draft choice, checked into a drug rehabilitation center, his agent said. Lewis, a running back from Texas A&M, was the only player who tested positive for cocaine during the NFL's scouting evaluations in February. The league sent all test results to each team, but Bear personnel director Bill Tobin said he never saw the letter.

Colorado starter Pedro Astacio threw two pitches close to Darren Lewis--one near his head--in the fifth inning after Eric Karros and Todd Zeile each hit two-run home runs. Astacio was warned not to throw at Lewis after the first pitch by home plate umpire Larry Vanover. "That was just because he was struggling against us," Lewis said of Astacio, the former Dodger pitcher traded for second baseman Eric Young. "He was having a very rough night. To be honest, though, it kind of surprised me."

Darren Lewis, the Southwest Conference's career rushing leader at Texas A&M, has gone on to the NFL's Chicago Bears. And Greg Hill is already making Aggie fans forget about him. Hill, a redshirt freshman, set a national record by rushing for 212 yards in 30 carries his first game as No. 20 Texas A&M beat Louisiana State, 45-7, in the Aggies' season opener Saturday at College Station, Tex. It was Texas A&M's biggest victory over LSU (0-2) since a 47-0 victory in 1922.

Texas had only one real good tackle on Texas A&M halfback Darren Lewis all day. "But if I had to pick a time to have one, that would be it," Longhorn Coach David McWilliams said. Fifth-ranked Texas beat the Aggies, 28-27, Saturday when cornerback Mark Berry stopped Lewis on a two-point conversion attempt with a little less than four minutes to play. The Longhorns, 10-1 overall and 8-0 in the Southwest Conference, already had clinched the SWC's Cotton Bowl berth.

AAAAAAA-men . Darren Lewis bellows it like a Baptist preacher, parading up and down the Texas A&M team bus. The third-leading rusher in the nation is giving a mock sermon, cutting up. In his encore, he takes verbal jabs at his teammates. "If there's a pimple on your nose, he'll talk about it," teammate Kevin Smith said, describing the scene. "As far as in public, he's pretty low-profile. As far as behind doors, he's a character."

Surrounded by a circle of reporters on the grass near the batting cage at Dodger Stadium on Thursday afternoon, the newest Dodger, Darren Lewis, politely but quickly excused himself when informed the team was about to hold a meeting. "I don't want to get into trouble on the first day," he said. Not much chance of that.

All of a sudden, the Dodgers look like a different team. And the main reason is, they are. The sleeker, faster, more opportunistic Dodgers ran away from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday afternoon, 9-5, in front of a Three Rivers Stadium crowd of 12,972 to take three of four in the series and eight of 10 on the trip. They increased their lead over the San Francisco Giants in the National League West to 1 1/2 games, the Dodgers' biggest of the season.

The Cincinnati Reds got the pitching they needed through a stunning eight-player trade Friday night that sent Deion Sanders and four minor leaguers to the San Francisco Giants. Cincinnati obtained pitchers Mark Portugal and Dave Burba and center fielder Darren Lewis, who will take over for Sanders in center. Sanders was unsettled by the trade, which sent him to the city where he helped the 49ers win a Super Bowl last January.
