With two passionate fist pumps Saturday evening, Kansas City Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain punctuated an evening when he swung nearly every big moment in a tense 4-hour, 17-minute game in his team's direction. The first celebration came after his final running catch of the night kept the game tied. The second, two innings later, came after his fourth hit of the night helped ensure his Royals would head back to Kansas City with a 6-4 win and a two-game lead in the American League Championship Series.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Judging Frank Lorenzo's plan to start a short-haul, low-fare, no-frills airline based here is difficult without passing judgment on the man himself. Mr. Lorenzo is such a controversial -- a polite way of saying detested -- figure in the airline industry that his presence overshadows the particular issue involved. But that avoids the question whether his idea stands on its own merits. The two matters need to be considered separately.Mr. Lorenzo, who has headed major airlines that later plunged into bankruptcy, believes he has found a niche for an airline operating along the East Coast, providing low-cost but comfortable and efficient service between cities from Boston to Florida.

Lorenzo the Tramp was required morning viewing for children watching WJZ-TV in the 1960s, when an actor named Gerald Wheeler charmed local audiences by dancing across a set while his young studio audience went crazy. Dressed in ragged clothes and a brown slouch hat (the same hat lasted 17 years), Wheeler put on a putty nose and drew on sad eyebrows. As Lorenzo, he did not speak. "He was a sad tramp who was at the same time happy all the time," Wheeler, 82, said the other day from his home in Santa Monica, Calif.

Inside the Ravens' locker room late Sunday afternoon, rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro smiled and did his best to shrug off compliments from veteran teammates. Taliaferro, a fourth-round draft pick, rushed for a game-high 91 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries during a 23-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Those were Taliaferro's first NFL regular-season carries after primarily playing on special teams in the Ravens' first two games. Taliaferro provided a boost to a backfield that was missing starter Bernard Pierce because of a quadriceps injury and no longer has Ray Rice after his $35 million contract was terminated in the fallout from his domestic violence incident.

It also precipitated the introduction of a strongly worded legislative resolution in Annapolis, calling Mr. Lorenzo "the bad boy of the airline industry."
