While Catonsville has the state's leading rusher in Jaren Maybin, No. 11 City showed the Comets yesterday that it has a formidable running back of its own. Junior Brian Dunston carried 17 times for 165 yards and scored a touchdown to help the Knights beat visiting Catonsville, 12-7, in the Class 3A North regional final. Still, Maybin had a big game of his own, rushing for 231 yards on 46 carries with one touchdown. "We wanted to show them we have good backs over here, too," Dunston said.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Shawon Dunston kissed the ball goodbye. Then he rounded the bases and kissed his son, Shawon Jr. Eighteen seasons without a World Series title. So many chances, so many disappointments, so much frustration adapting to his new role in recent years. All that looked like it might vanish with one heroic swing. Locked in a scoreless tie with the Anaheim Angels last night in Game 6 of the World Series, the San Francisco Giants received a two-run fifth-inning jolt from the hitter they stuck at the bottom of the order.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Two games into the World Series, Barry Bonds has hit two epic home runs, but he really hasn't hurt the Anaheim Angels that badly - yet. The secret: Bonds has been to the plate nine times, but only once with a runner on base. That came in the fifth inning last night, and with Rich Aurilia on second, the Angels made the easy decision, walking Bonds intentionally. It was Bonds' fourth walk of the series and third of the game. He came up with two outs in the sixth against Angels reliever Francisco Rodriguez, and hit a sharp grounder to first base to end the inning.

Valentine also shuffled the batting order, moving John Olerud into the second slot and second baseman Edgardo Alfonzo into the No. 3 hole.
