If it were up to Jason Johnson, his exploits on the football field for La Habra High School wouldn't bring him any extra attention. The reserved, 16-year-old junior doesn't like being singled out for praise--he would rather blend into the team. But for someone seeking anonymity, Johnson has played it all wrong. This season--his first on the varsity and second in organized football--he has run 122 times for 826 yards, the second-highest total in Orange County.

Randy Johnson's control was outstanding. Perhaps the only time he missed the target was on his final pitch, which sailed right past Eduardo Perez. Johnson's encouraging outing ended abruptly when he was ejected for throwing inside, and the Yankees beat the slumping Cleveland Indians, 6-1, in a testy game Wednesday at New York. "This could be a great turnaround for him," Yankees Manager Joe Torre said. "It looked like he was proud of his stuff, proud enough to dare them to hit it."

Jason Johnson took a five-hitter into the eighth inning, Victor Martinez and Grady Sizemore homered, and the Cleveland Indians got 20 hits in a 15-1 victory over the host Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. Johnson (2-0) gave up one run and seven hits in seven-plus innings. He struck out two and walked none. "It is fun to be on a team like this one," said the right-hander, who spent the last two seasons in Detroit. "Every time I take the mound, I expect to win."

Recruiting update: Mission Viejo defensive lineman Matt Keneley is scheduled to visit USC this weekend, and plans to choose between scholarship offers from USC and UCLA by next week. "I had visited California, too," said Keneley, a 6-foot-5, 250-pound tackle, "but the coaching staff is a little unstable up there after Bruce Snyder left (for Arizona State)."

Host La Habra High School broke the ice with 3 minutes 12 seconds remaining on a 22-yard field goal by Bryan Cierley and went on to beat Troy, 10-0, Friday in a Freeway League game. The lackluster victory gave La Habra (6-4, 2-3) fourth place in the league. Troy's disappointing season ended at 3-7, 1-4. Less than a minute after the field goal, La Habra's Brian Burchit sacked sophomore quarterback John Ledieff, forcing a fumble.
