Meet Foothill's Ryan Thompson, the highly ranked tennis player, world traveler and accomplished musician.

Ruben Sierra, happy with his trade from the Texas Rangers to Oakland, is willing to talk with the Athletics about a multiyear deal even before the free-agent filing period begins in late October. "The contract will fall into place, I'm certain," Sierra's agent, Bob Woolf, said. "If it doesn't, then he's a free agent to seek out the rest of the market, but certainly every opportunity would be given to Oakland."

Even after two bloop run-scoring singles, Ben Sheets isn't a big fan of the batter's box. "I still don't like to hit," said Sheets, a career .111 batter. "I don't mind standing on first base. But that's probably my least favorite part of the game. I enjoy what I do on the mound first and foremost and even tonight, with two hits, I still like what happened on the mound."

For eight innings, the New York Yankees somehow could not score against Dan Reichert, even though he tied a Royal record with nine walks. But when the Yankees got help from Kansas City's bullpen, they took advantage. David Justice homered to cap a seven-run eruption in the ninth inning and the Yankees rallied past the Royals, 7-3, Thursday night. Reichert pitched eight scoreless innings despite matching Dick Drago's team record for walks. He gave up only two hits and left with a 1-0 lead.
