Kenny Rogers Kenny Rogers' career, which spans more than six decades and crosses into a variety of music genres, is still going strong. The man who first hit it big in 1977 with "Lucille," which went No. 1 in 12 countries, celebrated his 51st Top 20 single with "I Can't Unlove You," from his March release, Water & Bridges. He has found a permanent place in American culture, with acting credits and a chicken-and-ribs restaurant chain to his name. He plays the Filene Center at Wolf Trap with the Oak Ridge Boys on Saturday.

NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Torre again has been forced to let Mother Nature make his pitching plans, which appears to put his club at a disadvantage in the rain-delayed 92nd World Series.The storm that washed out Game 1 last night will make both teams play through tomorrow's travel day, leaving Torre no alternative but to use struggling left-hander Kenny Rogers to pitch Game 4 at Atlanta/Fulton County Stadium. The delay appears to work in favor of the Atlanta Braves, since manager Bobby Cox already planned to go with four starting pitchers.
