Jamison Hensley Dolphins, 13-10 If the Ravens couldn't beat Cleo Lemon last year, they won't beat Chad Pennington this time. David Steele Ravens, 24-20 Both teams will run.

They will remain there for a few weeks until they are ready to move into a 1.2 million-gallon display tank in the marine mammal pavilion. The pavilion is to open in late December.The dolphins -- Hailey, Schooner and Shiloh -- will share the tank with the three beluga whales and three other dolphins that arrived from Texas in August.

TEL AVIV -- Three dolphins stranded by a bankruptcy are the central figures in the great Flipper Flap.From limbo in an abandoned pool, they have been saved -- or condemned, depending on who's doing the telling -- to perform in an amusement park. It is yet another controversy from Israel taking on international dimensions.The dolphins were part of a contingent obtained from Russia to put on entertainment shows at Dolphinarium, a shabby 13-year-old beachfront building on Tel Aviv's Mediterranean coast.

Seven bottlenose dolphins have washed up dead on Maryland shores in recent weeks, part of a larger mystery along the Mid-Atlantic coast, where alarmed scientists are working to find the cause of more than 120 dolphin deaths since June. The seven dolphin carcasses were found in the Chesapeake Bay and on beaches on Maryland's Atlantic coast during July. In a typical July, marine biologists might respond to a single report of a dead dolphin, said Dr. Cindy Driscoll, veterinarian and fish and wildlife health program director for the state Department of Natural Resources.

About 40 dolphins, which apparently took an unorthodox detour on their spring journey up the Atlantic coast, were spied yesterday visiting the Choptank River near Cambridge.Armed with binoculars and cameras, a group of astonished spectators counted the dolphins as they swam past about 200 yards off the Horn Point Environmental Laboratories."It was kind of impressive. They took about an hour to pass by," said Wayne Bell, vice president for external affairs for the University of Maryland's Center for Environmental and Estuarine Studies, which operates the laboratories.

MIAMI -- They tried and tried, but they just couldn't do it. The Miami Dolphins' offense simply could not give away a football game last night at Joe Robbie Stadium.No takers.Certainly not the New England Patriots.The Dolphins gave away five turnovers -- four in a frightful first quarter -- but the Pats kept treating the gifts like ugly neckties and the Dolphins escaped with a homely 17-10 victory over their AFC East brothers before 62,630.Miami improved to 5-1, its best start since 1984, and is assured of another week's tie or better atop the division race.
