There's another scandal brewing in the chase to break Roger Maris' single-season home run record, and it has been growing right under our noses all season.Did you know that most of the pitchers who have served up Mark McGwire's 54 home runs have been American-born?Think about it. McGwire was born in Southern California. He played at USC. He's the kind of freckle-faced All-American hero that opposing American-born pitchers would be proud to join in the history books. So every home run that he has hit against a patriotic American-born pitcher is suspect.

A night that started brilliantly for the Blast turned into one to forget last as the Philadelphia KiXX rallied from two goals down after the opening period to post an 8-7 victory.

Miguel Tejada is often touted as a "high energy" ballplayer, but the Orioles third baseman said he learned from the best, his former Dominican Winter League teammate and ex-big league pitcher Jose Lima. When Lima died Sunday of a massive heart attack at age 37, Tejada was crestfallen. "He was the happiest guy you'd ever see. He always had energy. He was always happy, he was never mad," said Tejada, who played several seasons with Lima for Aguilas, a DWL power. "And that's why we all hurt.

WASHINGTON - A former Baltimore-area resident who was one of several dozen people kidnapped Sunday in Colombia was released yesterday, but many of the others were still being held by suspected Marxist rebels in the countryside, local authorities said. The woman, Elena de Lima, who grew up in Timonium as Ellen Gould and married a Colombian physician working in Baltimore at what was then University Hospital, has lived in Colombia for more than 30 years but is still a U.S. citizen. She and her husband, Dr. Eduardo de Lima, were among at least 40 people kidnapped by gunmen from a residence and two restaurants outside Cali, Colombia's third-largest city.

LIMA, Peru -- A day after an earthquake devastated cities along Peru's southern coast, government officials said the deaths exceeded 500, with at least 17,000 people displaced and with wide areas lacking electricity, telephone service or road access. The deputy chief of Peru's fire department put the death toll at 510 last night. At least 300 of the dead were in Pisco, a port town about 125 miles south of Lima, and more were thought to be buried in rubble, local officials said. Dozens were inside the San Clemente cathedral, which was full for Mass when the quake caved it in about 6:40 p.m. Wednesday.

I planted pole limas for years with wonderful yields. The past two years, the vines grew 16 feet long, had many blooms, few pods, and no beans. The soil is enriched with mulch yearly. No fertilizer was added this year. The beans are watered and in full sun. The last two years have been especially stressful for many vegetables. Heat and/or drought can result in similar problems with lima beans. They will not pollinate when the temperature is over 90 degrees. Overly warm nights can be detrimental.

ATHENS - In a men's Olympic marathon as unique as the old marble stadium where the race ended, an American born in East Africa finished second yesterday for the first U.S. medal in the event in 28 years. American Meb Keflezighi's historic silver-medal finish followed a disturbing incident in which a defrocked Irish priest rushed onto the road to tackle race leader Vanderlei de Lima of Brazil roughly three miles from the end of the race between Marathon and Athens. Officers freed de Lima from the intruder's clutches, and he returned to the course physically unhurt but grimacing and shaking his head.
