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.

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.

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."

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."

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.
