Steve Woodard won his third consecutive start as the Milwaukee Brewers completed a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants with a 9-6 victory on Wednesday, but his biggest contribution came as a batter. With two out and a runner at first in the second inning, Russ Ortiz (8-5) walked Jose Valentin and Woodard (8-5). The next four batters singled, with Mark Loretta and Jeff Cirillo each driving in two runs and Ron Belliard also getting an RBI.

Mark McGwire's only shot Saturday night was the one he took in his ribs. McGwire was 0 for 4 in the St. Louis Cardinals' 7-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers, striking out four times and getting hit by a pitch. McGwire, who struck out four times in a game for the first time this season, remained at 64 homers, one ahead of Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs.

The acquisition of Denny Neagle sent the New York Yankees' payroll to $107 million and counting. George Steinbrenner, the principal owner, would call it another example of free enterprise and the free market at work.

Wes Grisham, who had only two hits in his previous 17 at-bats, hit a home run to key a four-run seventh inning as Louisiana State beat USC, 5-4, Sunday in the championship round of the NCAA South I Regional at Baton Rouge, La. LSU (51-17) needed to defeat the Trojans twice. The title game Sunday night was postponed until 10 a.m. PDT today because of rain and 50-m.p.h. winds. The winner will advance to the College World Series starting Friday at Omaha.

Baseball is supposed to be a game of inches, but any team that hopes to topple Oklahoma State's muscular Cowboys in the NCAA Midwest Regional had better be ready to play long ball. This is not a tournament that figures to produce pitching duels. Loyola Marymount is among five teams in Stillwater that will try to beat host Oklahoma State--the nation's top-ranked team in one poll--and advance to next week's College World Series. One team will advance from each of the eight regionals.

Minnesota Twin outfielder Kirby Puckett is threatening to exercise an escape clause in his contract at the end of the season and declare himself a free agent. Puckett, a 10-time all-star, is seething over the Twins' fire sale and can't stomach the thought of playing for a loser for the final two years of his contract. "To me it seems the organization doesn't want to win," Puckett said. "I think that's the message they're sending. Who's going to want to come here and play?
