Jeff Suppan got the emotions out of the way Friday when he received his World Series ring from the Cardinals. On Saturday night, he got down to business and beat his former team. Suppan, one of three starters St. Louis did not sign after winning its first title in 24 years, pitched 6 1/3 solid innings in a 3-2 Milwaukee Brewers victory. He beat Kip Wells, who essentially replaced him in the Cardinals' rotation. "Surprisingly, I felt actually OK," Suppan said.

At the entrance to the bench, Scott Muckey sits on a sturdy but fading black briefcase that he inherited 13 years ago from his father. Holding a clipboard and wearing sunglasses, Muckey uses his fingers to signal to catcher Alex Gonzalez what pitches he wants thrown. For 24 seasons, Muckey has been the baseball coach at Encino Crespi High, and the biggest surprise is how he even made it to year No. 2. He was a college coach and always intended to stay a college coach. In 1986, he lost his position as head coach at Los Angeles Valley College because of budget cuts and was going to spend only a year at Crespi in 1987 before searching for another college position.

Cristie Kerr won the rain-delayed LPGA State Farm Classic by one shot over Anna Nordqvist and Na Yeon Choi on Monday. The final round of the event at Springfield, Ill., was played a day late because of weekend rain interrupting play. Kerr fought off flu symptoms and late challenges from Nordqvist and Choi, shooting a three-under-par 69 in the final round to finish at 22-under 266 at Panther Creek Country Club. Kerr had a two-shot lead heading to the final hole, so a bogey on the final hole gave her the one-shot victory.

Pop. Whiz. Pop. The first pop is Jeff Suppan's bubble gum. The second, the catcher's mitt. The whiz in between is what is most troublesome for batters. Suppan, Crespi's standout right-hander, has been dominating with pinpoint control of his fastball, a sharp curve and a good changeup. Don't ask him about it, though. For example, just how hard does he throw? "I don't know," Suppan says. "There's always rumors." How does he explain his remarkable strikeout-to-walk ratio?

His hair was a mess. His gray T-shirt was soaked. He wore a pair of goggles, protecting his eyes from the streams of champagne and beer descending upon him. And yet, in the middle of the visiting clubhouse, a woman walked right up to him and planted a kiss on his lips. And then, after the congratulatory kiss for her husband, Dana Suppan exhaled.
