Browns@Bills 8:30 p.m. [ESPN] There's a lot of pride on the line in this one. Call this one the Rodney Dangerfield Bowl. After all, don't these two cities lead the NFL in disrespect? I'm reminded of the time Len Barker pitched a no-hitter for the Indians and a baseball writer, told that there had been a perfect game in Cleveland, replied: "There's no such thing."

Liz Hogan once quit swimming because it had consumed her life. A former prodigy from Northern California who first competed for a spot on the 1972 U.S. Olympic team at 15, Hogan retired before she turned 20. She had just finished her freshman year at UCLA after narrowly missing a spot on the 1976 Olympic team as well. The sudden death of her older brother Ted from a previously undetected heart condition known as cardiomyopathy and her own bout with diverticulitis contributed to Hogan's losing her zeal for a sport she had competed in since age 6. But the years of spending hours underwater also had taken their toll emotionally and physically.

For tonight's 7: 35 game against the defending champion Cleveland Crunch at Baltimore Arena, the Blast is on the other end of the obstacle it faced last week. Now the Blast is the lower seed and, therefore, was awarded the opportunity to start the best-of-three series in the National Professional Soccer League's American Conference finals at home in front of thousands of its fans. "It is like us last week, when we had to start out in Philly," Blast captain Lance Johnson. "I don't think it's fair for the higher seed to have to start out on the road, but we'll take it. I think it definitely gives the lower seed the advantage.

You want to cheer on Baltimore's newest team but don't have the $4,000 or so in the cookie jar for permanent seat licenses to take the family out to watch the Browns at Memorial Stadium next year.There's a solution: Instead of waiting for the Browns to come to Baltimore, go to their final game in Cleveland.The Browns' last regular-season game at Cleveland Stadium will be Dec. 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals. There were nearly 8,000 no-shows for the Browns' game Sunday against the Houston Oilers, and if Clevelanders don't build a bonfire with their tickets to the Bengals game, they probably can be bought at reduced cost from scalpers.

CLEVELAND -- Mike Hargrove had briefly considered giving Sandy Alomar the night off, given the fact that the veteran catcher was struggling at the plate and had caught every inning of his team's first eight playoff games. The thought passed quickly."In about five seconds," the Cleveland Indians manager said.Good thing, considering what Alomar did in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series and to the Orioles in last night's 8-7 victory at Jacobs Field. While he did it mostly with his bat -- getting three hits, including the game winner -- he also did it with his savvy.

They were 4 1/2 games out on the occasion of the first pitch last night at Memorial Stadium, a fourth straight division title still very much a possibility, but they were just six games over .500 and they'd blown a game in Cleveland the night before and now another pitcher was injured, and you couldn't help but begin to wonder if the pieces were ever going to fit this season.That's a crazy assumption to make about the Oakland A's, of course, because while there have been nights this season when the injuries have added up to a lineup resembling a practical joke -- Riles, Law, Quirk, Bordick, Komminsk, Blankenship, these are the A's?

Matt Stover has been under the microscope before. Having spent 10 years in the NFL, Stover is no stranger to pressure, whether it comes with lining up to attempt a game-winning field goal or having to preserve his job with a potential replacement lurking in the wings.For the past month, Stover has faced the prospect of losing his roster spot to Joe Nedney, whom the Ravens claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals. The Ravens were dissatisfied with Stover's distances on kickoffs, a Nedney specialty.

The Orioles finally are able to team up pitcher Jaret Wright with catcher Ramon Hernandez. It's just not happening in Baltimore. Wright and Hernandez will report to Single-A Frederick on an injury rehabilitation assignment and start tonight against the Wilmington Blue Rocks. Hernandez will stay with the Keys an extra day and serve as their designated hitter tomorrow, while Wright rejoins the Orioles. If everything goes according to plan, Wright will come off the disabled list in time to start Sunday's game in Cleveland.

No matter what happens to Omar Daal today against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, he apparently will remain in the Orioles' rotation and take his next turn when the teams meet again at Tropicana Field on Friday. Manager Mike Hargrove indicated yesterday that Daal would receive his fifth start on schedule, even if he continues to struggle. Signed as a free agent in January, the left-hander is 0-2 with an 8.04 ERA in three games. In his most recent appearance, Daal retired the first nine batters before the Cleveland Indians jumped him for seven runs and nine hits in 1 1/3 innings.

Orioles outfielder Chris Richard wasn't in the starting lineup last night against the Boston Red Sox after injuring his right shoulder while diving for a ball the previous night. A magnetic resonance imaging taken yesterday didn't reveal any structural damage, but he could miss the three-game series in Cleveland that begins tonight. "Right now he's day-to-day," said manager Mike Hargrove. Richard raced to the right-field line before making a futile attempt at a slicing liner from Boston's Chris Stynes in the eighth inning of the Red Sox's 3-0 victory.

Having made it through two throwing sessions without recurring pain in his left hamstring, Doug Drabek is expected to pitch a simulated game in the bullpen tomorrow. From there, the Orioles' right-hander could go on a rehabilitation assignment before being activated from the disabled list.Drabek has been on the DL since Aug. 1 with a strained hamstring. He threw without pain for about 10 minutes in Cleveland on Friday afternoon, and again for about 17 minutes before Monday's game against Minnesota.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Looking like an impatient man while completing what he considers the most patient phase of his career, Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken concluded two days of rehabilitation work in Florida yesterday, persuading club officials he's healthy enough to rejoin the club.Ripken, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 17 with nerve irritation in his back, went 3-for-6 against the Minnesota Twins' Gulf Coast League affiliate at Lee County Sports Complex yesterday, and played five innings of defense free of discomfort.
