DENVER -- On a tough night for Democrats nationwide, some small hope could be found in Colorado, where Democrat and former rancher Ken Salazar narrowly defeated beer baron and Republican Pete Coors to win an open seat in the U.S. Senate. Coors delivered his concession speech at 11:30 p.m. MST. With 80 percent of the precincts reporting, Salazar held a 50 percent to 48 percent lead. The win was a significant pickup for Democrats because the seat is held by Republican Ben Nighthorse Campbell, who is retiring.

DENVER -- Jason Jennings (6-6) and two relievers combined on a one-hitter for Colorado. Jennings overcame six walks in seven innings for his third straight win. Coupled with a 7-0 win on Monday night, it was the second time there were back-to-back shutouts in Coors Field's 11-year history. It was also the seventh shutout - fourth by the Rockies - at Coors Field this year, breaking the single-season record set in 1997 with 47 games still left at the hitter-friendly park.

Erin Elizabeth Coors is so busy rehearsing for her big role in The Wedding Singer that she doesn't have time to arrange her own trip to the altar. "Being on the road during a national tour doesn't lend itself to planning a big wedding," she says. "My fiance and I have been dating for three years, and engaged for the past 18 months. My agent keeps saying: `Just get married on the set. We'll all fly out for it.' "But that wouldn't be the wedding of my dreams. I don't want to get married in the wedding gown from the 1980s that I wear in the show.

Beverages can be a refreshing antidote for the summertime stock market blues. Shares of Anheuser-Busch Cos., the world's largest brewer, are up 5 percent this year. Steven Ralston, senior analyst with Zacks Investment Research, said it is an attractive purchase because it has about half the U.S. beer market. Aside from Budweiser, it also owns 50 percent of Mexico's Grupo Modelo, maker of Corona beer, and recently purchased the Rolling Rock brand. These are reasons why Warren E. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway owns 44 million Anheuser-Busch shares.

Every so often in this world of consensual illusion, you draft a team that you end up just hating. I'm having that precise experience with Childs Play, the squad I crowed about in this very space during the run-up to the season. I thought I had a contender but instead, just about every major decision I've made has gone awry. My biggest draft-day buys have ranked among the game's bigger busts. My bedrock starting pitchers have cracked like so much peanut brittle. My putative closer may never regain his form.

Nothing can top what happened at Camden Yards this season, but it's nice to know the Orioles haven't cornered the market on dysfunctional families. Here's a brief rundown of an ugly month in Miami: The Florida Marlins were leading the wild-card race Sept. 12 and then dropped 12 of 15 to fall into last place in the National League East. Pitcher A.J. Burnett blew up in the clubhouse last Sunday, criticizing the coaching staff for its contagious negativity. The next day, Burnett, who helped carry the Marlins after the All-Star break but slumped down the stretch, was booted from the team by manager Jack McKeon.
