A guy who once did so much cocaine his children feared him was carried off a baseball field on the shoulders of teammates last week. A guy who repaid wondrous gifts of size and strength with a decade of alcohol and drugs was sober enough to pitch a no-hitter. It happened in New York, with a nation's lonely eyes believing they were witnessing a miracle. The guy's name is Dwight Gooden, and we awoke Wednesday to read he was a hero.

Chase Utley's legs, along with a reconsidered official scoring call, helped him extend his hitting streak to 34 games. Utley kept the longest streak in the major leagues this year alive when the scorer changed his call on an eighth-inning grounder, then added a single in the ninth to help the Philadelphia Phillies rout the St. Louis Cardinals, 16-8, on Wednesday. Utley was 0 for 4 when, with the Phillies leading, 11-7, he hit a bouncer to the third-base side of the pitcher's mound.
