ATLANTA -- It's not every day that a World Series game-winning home run takes second place in a family's athletic accomplishments, but that's the price you pay when you're married to an Olympic gold medalist.Ed Sprague, a Toronto Blue Jays reserve catcher, will forever be known as the man who got the hit that gave a foreign country its first win in the World Series, as his ninth-inning, two-run blast to left boosted the Jays over the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, last night.But Sprague's homer off Jeff Reardon doesn't even make first place at home.

Patience.That's what Dale Sprague says a school needs when it has been down in football and seeks to regain the heights.Sprague, 38, who coaches Western Maryland, is living proof of that.When he came to Westminster in 1986, the football program was in tatters. The Green Terrors had posted an 0-9 record in '85 and some observers, including this one, wondered if football was practical for a college with 1,200 students, half of them women."Western Maryland has played football for 100 years and I think they'll continue the program," I was told then by Mitch Tullai, who played on the school's last undefeated team in 1951 and has been head coach ever since at St. Paul's School.

Chambers "reluctantly accepted" Sprague's resignation.

BARCELONA, Spain -- You've got gel and mousse. You've got music and underwater choreography. You've got a history that stretches back to Esther Williams movies and fast-forwards to a "Saturday Night Live" skit.If it's the Summer Olympics, then it must be time for more synchronized swimming.But before dismissing the sport as a made-for-television joke, ask yourself this question: Could you swim upside down under water for 30 seconds, hold your breath, perform splits and rolls, and then come up for air . . . smiling?

Quote: "I watched some of the videos of the last time we played and we couldn't get him out. Obviously he's one of the best and I just didn't want to upset him." - Athletics pitcher Gil Heredia of Giants' Barry Bonds, whom he struck out three times It's a fact: The four homers yielded by Jim Brower are the most allowed by an Indians pitcher in one game at Jacobs Field since the park opened in 1994. Who's hot: The Dodgers' Gary Sheffield, who had no homers in eight games before the All-Star break, homered for the fourth time in three games since the three-day hiatus.

Baltimore Orioles fans divided themselves into two general categories this dreadful season. There were those so aggravated with the Orioles' dispiriting play -- especially early in the year when the team seemed in such a rush to get out of the pennant race -- that they couldn't wait for the whole mess to draw to a close.Then there were the fans at Camden Yards yesterday.Even after the team's second straight year of underperformance, fans yesterday demonstrated yet again that the Orioles have not come close to depleting their reservoir of good will.

On the field: Toronto third baseman Ed Sprague finally got his 100th RBI, reaching the plateau on his sixth-inning single to tie the game at 1. Sprague, who was stuck on 99 RBIs for nearly a week, is the ninth player in Blue Jays history to get 100 RBIs in a season.In the dugout: Perhaps if Orioles manager Davey Johnson had left starter Mike Mussina in for another inning, Mussina may have notched his 20th win. Mussina was replaced by Armando Benitez to start the ninth inning, after allowing just four hits and one earned run up to then on 118 pitches.

TORONTO -- Orioles manager Davey Johnson waited for the phone from the bullpen to ring last night, wanted the phone to ring, like a teen-ager hoping to hear from a prospective prom date.Left-handed starter Rick Krivda was tiring and right-hander Jimmy Haynes was warming up and Johnson wanted the right-hander, with Toronto designated hitter Ed Sprague coming But the phone didn't ring in time, and on Krivda's third pitch, Sprague hit a grand slam and the Blue Jays went on to win, 5-2. Cal Ripken was responsible for the second run, a bases-empty homer.

ATLANTA -- Now everyone knows the name of Toronto's backup catcher, too.Ed Sprague became the lastest in baseball's week of unlikely heroes, hitting a two-run, pinch homer in the ninth inning last night as the Blue Jays stunned the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, to even the World Series at one game each.On a night when everything looked wrong for the Blue Jays -- the Canadian flag was presented upside down and they were the victim of a bad call at home plate, Sprague made it all right. After a one-out walk to pinch hitter Derek Bell, Sprague, hitting for pitcher Duane Ward, jolted Jeff Reardon's first pitch over the left-field fence.

"I always jinx Curtis when I come to see him."Will she or won't she?"She can't be no jinx," Curtis said. "I've got to give the lady a call. She'll be here when we get back [from the road trip], for sure."Oh, Arterlia Goodwin is going to wave her cowbell at Camden Yards, just as she vowed two years ago when her younger son was in A ball.The jinx?Well, it seems Curtis got ejected after a bench-clearing brawl the first day of her visit to Frederick in 1993, and went 3-for-40 after she arrived in Bowie last season.
