MINNEAPOLIS -- Depending on who's telling the story, either Kent Hrbek has been watching too much professional wrestling or Ron Gant is not telling the whole truth.Hrbek appeared to lift Gant off of first base in the third inning of last night's second game of the World Series, but umpire Drew Coble ruled that the Atlanta Braves outfielder fell off all by himself.The play turned out to be a pick-me-up for the Minnesota Twins, who escaped from a first-and-third jam and went on to score a dramatic 3-2 victory at the Metrodome.

BOGOTA, Colombia - Colombia's Congress approved an amendment to the Constitution late Tuesday that would permit President Alvaro Uribe, the Bush administration's most reliable ally in Latin America, to run for re-election in 2006. The main article in the five-point amendment, approved by a vote of 113-16, lifts the ban on re-election, leaving it up to the country's highest court to decide if the change is constitutional. Political analysts believe the Constitutional Court would be likely to approve the change after some debate.

Lawyers for The Sun will argue today in a Richmond, Va., courtroom that Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. had no constitutional right to forbid state officials from speaking with two of the paper's journalists, and that the ban was a violation of the First Amendment. The hearing, in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is the latest round in a running feud between the state's largest newspaper and Ehrlich, elected in 2002 as Maryland's first Republican governor in 36 years. The Sun filed a lawsuit against the governor on Dec. 3, 2004, after Ehrlich forbade state employees from speaking with columnist Michael Olesker and reporter David Nitkin, who was the State House bureau chief and who since has been appointed the paper's Maryland political editor.

"I didn't know it could turn out to be so beautiful, with what they had to work with."
