COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn took their place in baseball's shrine Sunday, saluted as much for their Hall of Fame careers as their character off the field.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Four days into training camp, Jamaal Anderson and Justin Blalock are enduring a crash course with the Atlanta Falcons.
PHOENIX - Chipper Jones drove in five runs, Tim Hudson allowed three hits in seven innings and the Atlanta Braves routed Arizona 14-0 Sunday to end the Diamondbacks' eight-game winning streak.
SAN FRANCISCO - The game was still an hour and a half away and the man who will be the home run king was sitting in his private enclave in the Giants' clubhouse, head in hands and watching his personal flat-panel TV.
PHOENIX - Conor Jackson's game-winning hit went nowhere near the outfield fence on Saturday, but it counted just the same.
ATLANTA - There's more than one side to Michael Vick, the star quarterback.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Nike suspended its lucrative contract with Michael Vick on Friday, while Reebok took the unprecedented step of stopping sales of his No. 7 jersey.
In another dose of bad news for the indicted quarterback, a top trading card company announced it was pulling Vick's likeness from any new packs.
SAN FRANCISCO - Hammerin' Hank, he's right behind you now.
Barry Bonds hit his 754th career home run Friday night, and needed just one more to tie Hank Aaron's record.
PHOENIX - Tony Clark homered to lead off the bottom of the eleventh inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Atlanta Braves 8-7 Friday night after squandering a seven-run lead.
Clark's homer followed a game-winning shot by Eric Byrnes the previous night, and is the Diamondbacks' fifth game-winner this season. Arizona has won seven straight to move within one game of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

The bomb planted Wednesday near the Tour de France route wasn't really necessary because the doped-up cyclists have done a good enough job themselves destroying the race. By the time they ride into Paris this weekend, the only ones left pedaling will be a few French kids on Schwinns with training wheels.
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons hired Bobby Petrino because they thought he could turn Michael Vick into a complete quarterback. They signed Joey Harrington merely to serve as No. 7's backup.
