Looking back * Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, above, must have been thinking "Dude, where's the ball?" on Friday night when Franklin Gutierrez of Cleveland hit a second-inning bouncer that found its way inside Zimmerman's jersey. Zimmerman had to reach between the buttons to retrieve it. "I was more upset because I didn't get the guy out, but it was kind of funny," Zimmerman said. "I don't know how it got in there, but it got in there somehow."

Tony Kornheiser of the Washington Post on Andrew Golota's loss to Lennox Lewis: "He went paws up in 95 seconds; he hit the deck so fast they should have checked for skid marks. After the fight, Golota collapsed from what was described as an 'anxiety attack.' "Who is he going to fight next, Jerry Lewis?" * Trivia time: What with Teresa Edwards being player/coach of the ABL's Atlanta Glory, who was the last NBA player/coach?

If you're serious about collecting, consider a pilgrimage to Indiana, where 1,300 dealers line interlocking highways along Richmond's Antique Alley. Otherwise, there are more than 2,500 flea markets in the U.S., with an average of about 200 vendors per market. The beauty in flea-market finds is that they don't have to be put to their original use. A lidless teapot can become a flowerpot, an old window a mirror frame. A picnic basket can be used for storage.

The weather was fabulous for the first round of the 72-hole, million-dollar Mazda Senior Tournament Players Championship here Thursday and so were the scores. Jack Nicklaus tied the competitive record on the 6,665-yard, par-72 course with a 65, seven under par. Even so, that gave him only a share of first place.

Maneuvering an estate sale takes practice and skill. This isn't like dropping by a garage sale and poking through boxes. Like the Boy Scouts, you should be prepared. Ralph and Terry Kovel, veterans of countless sales, offer these tips: * Do your homework. If you're interested in specific periods or items, read books, talk to experts, visit museums and go to antique shows. You'll be competing with dealers at these sales, so educate yourself. To get a sense of prices, peruse a few antique stores.

At 11:38 Saturday morning, Bret Saberhagen's wife, Janeane, gave birth to the couple's first child, 9-pound 3-ounce Drew William. At 10:24 Saturday night, the new father learned officially that he will be back at work tonight, facing John Tudor in the climactic seventh game of the World Series. It was at that moment Saturday night that Kansas City culminated a ninth-inning comeback against St. Louis, 2-1, tying the best-of-seven affair at three games apiece.
