ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- New Tampa Bay Rays closer Troy Percival played golf once all spring. Percival has spent 12-plus seasons in the majors, and each spring he and a bunch of his baseball buddies hit the links after practice. But now he's in a new role: aging veteran amid players 15 years younger. "There's a pretty good generation gap," Percival, 38, said. "I'm used to coming into spring training and you golf four or five times a week. And here they play video games. They go back to each other's houses and they have the Internet and they play each other over the Internet.

Up Chase Utley, second baseman, Phillies -- He is a major reason Philadelphia has won eight straight games. Last week, Utley hit .483 with three homers and eight RBIs.

Last week, Rios batted .462 and extended his hitting streak to nine games. C.C. Sabathia, starter, Indians -- After returning from the disabled list May 2, he is 2-0 and has allowed one earned run in 13 innings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - When the Tampa Bay Devil Rays let the non-waiver trade deadline pass last week without making a move, they looked at it as a sign of progress. Unlike last year, when they traded Fred McGriff, this time their best player was still with the team. Outfielder Randy Winn wasn't pawned off to some contender for future prospects. Winn made the All-Star team this season, and he has quietly become one of the better hitters in the American League. After batting .359 in June, he hit .360 in July.

Two nights ago, the Harrisburg Senators scored six runs the first time they batted and wiped out a Bowie Baysox lead to take the suspended first game of a doubleheader.But the uprising also had a reverse effect; it gave the Baysox a wake-up call.Bowie became the first team to shut out the Senators this season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, and followed last night by blasting Miguel Batista and his successors for 16 hits to take the rubber game of the Double-A Eastern League series, 11-2, before 1,747 at Memorial Stadium.

WASHINGTON -- It didn't take long last season for RFK Stadium to earn a reputation as a "pitcher's park." By the All-Star break, there had been just 45 homers hit there, last in the majors. If the first three games this year are any indication, the stadium is still playing big. But only, it seems, when the power-challenged Washington Nationals are batting. The New York Mets yesterday had little trouble sizing up RFK - and Washington pitching - by slugging four home runs en route to a 13-4 victory that completed a three-game sweep and sent the Mets to their sixth straight victory.

Still empty-handed in their efforts to improve a stagnant offense, the Orioles continued to explore trade options yesterday, as another one of their free-agent targets signed elsewhere. The San Francisco Giants signed switch-hitting outfielder Jose Cruz to a one-year, $2.8 million contract with an option for 2004, outbidding the Orioles, who offered closer to $2 million. Cruz joined Hideki Matsui (New York Yankees), Cliff Floyd (New York Mets) and Ivan Rodriguez (Florida Marlins) on the list of players who have received offers from the Orioles but signed elsewhere this offseason.
