Catcher Eric Munson was taken third overall in the baseball draft Wednesday, and pitcher Barry Zito went ninth as a USC team still focusing on the present became a major part of the future for a couple major league clubs. Munson was chose by the Detroit Tigers, as expected, as the first college player chosen in the 22-round process. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays picked high school outfielder Josh Hamilton from Raleigh, N.C., first and the Florida Marlins used the No.

After spending two games and more than six hours behind the plate Sunday, USC catcher Eric Munson was ready to relax following USC's 12-7 victory over Pepperdine in the championship game of an NCAA baseball regional at Dedeaux Field. Munson and his Trojan teammates were forced to play twice because Pepperdine staved off elimination with a 4-3 win earlier in the day.

Two came. One stayed, turning down a high six-figure contract from the Atlanta Braves to accept a low six-figure scholarship at USC, and Eric Munson figures to use only three-quarters of that. He'll be eligible for the draft again next season, his junior year, and he may get what would have been enough to keep him away from the Trojans to begin with: being a first-round selection, which means big money. "Enough to knock your socks off," he calls it.

Steve Avery couldn't have asked for much more. Avery earned his first major league win in four years when the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics, 2-1, Wednesday night. Brandon Inge hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to win it for Detroit. Avery (1-0) came in with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth and struck out Scott Hatteberg to end the inning. "To come in in that situation was pretty exciting," Avery said. "Especially with the bases loaded. I need every [win] I can get now."
