Riots, mudslides, earthquakes, O. J.Hasn't Los Angeles suffered enough already?Nah, someone in Hollywood said. Let's bake 'em.And so we have "Volcano," a mega-million-dollar production that turns L.A. into an open-air barbecue pit. It's L.A. as a lava-engorged, ash-spewing Armageddon. It's L.A., the makers of "Volcano" movie know all too well, the way a lot of people outside L.A. imagine seeing it.Imagine this: We survived the eons with a grand total of zero volcano feature films only to have two of them erupting in 1997.

The morning after Cal Ripken passed Brooks Robinson to become the Orioles' all-time leader in hits, Cleveland Indians closer Mike Jackson was still trying to understand Ripken's new stance.Jackson watched a videotape several times yesterday of Ripken's ninth-inning foul out Friday night and said, "I haven't figured out this stance yet. He refuses to swing at any pitches away from him. It's like he's saying I'll give you that outside pitch if you throw it for a strike. And I don't see how he can ever pull the ball."

On the field: Cal Ripken pulled a ball down the left-field line in the first, and he reached second about the same time as the throw from left fielder Mark Whiten. But the throw went to the front of the bag, Ripken threw his body around to the back of the bag and eluded the tag of second baseman Joey Cora. Seattle manager Lou Piniella rushed a couple of steps out of the dugout to argue -- but quickly turned around when Cora waved him back.In the dugout: Right-handed-hitting Mike Devereaux started last night against Sterling Hitchcock, even though Devereaux has struggled in limited at-bats against the left-hander, with only one hit in 10 at-bats going into the game.
