Freezing rain caused a chain-reaction accident Friday involving 52 cars, authorities said. The pileup left a southbound stretch of Interstate 635 littered with twisted metal. Motorists shivered in the cold as tow trucks hauled off their battered cars. Despite the large pileup, only five serious injuries were reported. "It's not a pretty sight," state trooper Jim Todd said as he surveyed the highway.

The Chief-Raider rivalry has been a one-sided affair in Kansas City's favor in the 1990s. On a rainy Monday night, Oakland ended years of frustration with a lopsided victory of its own. Jeff Hostetler threw three touchdown passes, Napoleon Kaufman ran for 109 yards and the Raiders kept their slim playoff hopes alive by holding Kansas City to 71 passing yards in a 26-7 victory.

On a dismal, rainy night in Kansas City, the Royals were eliminated from the American League West race Friday night despite their 7-2 victory over the Angels in a game stopped in the sixth inning by rain. "What we have to play for now is second," Manager Hal McRae said. "I'd like to finish the season on a good note." Greg Gagne hit a two-run double and Craig Wilson hit his first major league home run in a five-run fourth inning for Kansas City.

A rain-swollen Kansas river rose four feet in one hour, forcing 100 residents to flee their homes Friday, while heavy thunderstorms across New Mexico washed out bridges, closed roads and took the life of one woman. Officials at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado closed the 11,000-foot-high Trail Ridge Road for the winter after snowplows failed to bust seven-foot drifts. The Whitewater River in Augusta, Kan., fed by up to five inches of rain, was more than 30 feet deep and rising.

In a sense, Leon Durham and Lee Smith of the Chicago Cubs were doing it for the kids. Durham hit a home run and knocked in two runs, and Smith pitched two innings of scoreless relief as the Chicago Cubs defeated Pittsburgh, 3-1, at Chicago's Wrigley Field Tuesday. Durham donates $750 to a Chicago high school every time he hits a homer, and Smith found out during the game that he is about to become a father for the first time.

They say the state of Washington would be a slice of Great Northwestern paradise if it weren't for that lousy average annual rainfall figure. To many, the state's image is all wet . . . a nice place to live, if you happen to be amphibious. But Seattle averages only 36.99 inches of rainfall annually. By comparison, Washington, D.C., averages 37.73 inches of rain, Kansas City, Mo., 38.77, and New York 57.03. Norm Johnson, who calls Redmond, Wash.

Simon Elliott picked just the right time to score his first goal this season, and in doing so Saturday night he put the Galaxy in perfect position to win Major League Soccer's Western Division title. The New Zealand midfielder's 20th-minute shot from long range swerved sharply from right to left and completely fooled Colorado Rapid goalkeeper Scott Garlick, who managed only to swat at it ineffectively as it flew by him and into the net.

"The Wizard of Oz" a political parable? A look at the characters at the time L. Frank Baum wrote (1900) indicates many parallels between the novel and the issues of the day--at least according to a 1964 interpretation by Henry M. Littlefield, a Mount Vernon, N.Y., high school teacher. The Scarecrow represents the Kansas farmer, made to feel dumb by the great Midwestern drought of the 1890s and low crop prices caused by a shortage in the money supply, Littlefield wrote.

Denver quarterback John Elway tested his injured leg Friday, and Bronco Coach Mike Shanahan thinks he'll be able to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Elway went half speed on his strained right hamstring. He remains questionable on the injury report, but Shanahan said, "John looked good. He practiced the whole practice and he didn't have any repercussions and it looks like he'll be in good shape. We didn't put a lot of pressure on him. He's not going to sprint.

Albert Belle again picked on the Yankees in general and Jimmy Key in particular, hitting one home run and scoring four times as the Cleveland Indians defeated New York, 10-5, Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. Belle had three hits, including a double, and Manny Ramirez and Paul Sorrento also homered as Cleveland ended an 11-game losing streak to New York that began in 1993. The Yankees were 9-0 against the Indians last year, the only time they ever swept another team for an entire season.
