Terrence McNally plays are like city buses: They sweep by, may not take you where you think you're going, and, when absent for a while, suddenly arrive in droves and from all directions. Like now. His musical-theater librettos are or will soon be playing to audiences at the Bristol Riverside Theater ( Ragtime ), the Eagle Theatre in Hammonton ( Catch Me if You Can ), and up the road on Broadway ( It's Only a Play and The Visit ). In the pipeline is a backstage operatic comedy titled Great Scott in collaboration with composer Jake Heggie.

Brittany Scott struck out six in pitching a perfect game, and her sacrifice fly drove in a run in the third inning, carrying Buena to a 2-0 victory at Sacred Heart on Thursday in Cape-Atlantic League softball. Kaitlyn Cooper added a solo home run in the fifth for the first-place Chiefs (13-0 overall, 10-0 conference), who opened a two-game lead over Sacred Heart (14-3, 8-2) in the National Conference Division I standings. In other Cape-Atlantic action: Karisma Pantaleon and Nicole Chillari combined for five RBIs, and Jenna Montana shut down Cape May Tech on six hits in pitching host Bridgeton to a 9-0 win. Brittany Robertson went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and a pair of runs scored, and Tori Sittineri tossed a three-hit shutout as Middle Township pummeled Pleasantville, 23-0, in three innings.

AS THE SAYING goes, there's the known and then there's the unknown . . . That pretty much sums up the first-round leaderboard at the second and last AT & T National to be played at Newtown Square's Aronimink Golf Club. And that's the way it can sometimes be on the PGA Tour, especially at a stop where no player ranked among the top 14 on the planet shows up. They're still going to hand out a trophy come Sunday afternoon. The rest mostly gets filed away under details. So, in no particular order, these were some of the sightings you had yesterday on this Donald Ross masterpiece: Dean Wilson, not to be confused with Mark, who won twice earlier this season.

YOU NEED someone to do the definitive handbook on Advanced Logistics, then your guy is 75-year-young Harry Scott, who is about to embark on a monthlong journey that would constitute a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most folks. Except that he already has been down this highway once before. Only this time he is doing himself two better, thanks to expansion. You want to know how long it takes to get from St. Louis to Dallas? How about the best route? Or which major league baseball stadium is serving up the best grub?

Shirley Scott, 67, the Philadelphia-born "Queen of the Organ" known for her crisp sense of swing, died Sunday at Presbyterian Medical Center after a long battle with heart disease. Though she spent decades as one of the most visible and beloved members of the Philadelphia jazz community, Ms. Scott, who lived in West Chester, made headlines most recently as a litigant. In February 2000, she won an $8 million settlement against American Home Products, manufacturers of the now-banned diet drug fen-phen, and the doctor who prescribed it to her. Ms. Scott began taking the drug "cocktail" in 1995, and by 1997 had developed primary pulmonary hypertension that forced her to be hooked up to an oxygen tank 24 hours a day. Ms. Scott came to prominence in the late '50s, when groups built around the Hammond B3 organ were a hot sound in jazz.

The words were strong. The attack was personal. "If the No. 4 guy even makes contact in either Boston loss, we sweep the series," Phillies manager Larry Bowa was quoted as saying in a published report yesterday. Bowa said he never made that controversial accusation concerning Scott Rolen's play in last weekend's visit to Fenway Park. Welcome to the Phillies' version of life in first place. Rolen has been the primary four-hole hitter for the Phillies this season, and, by his admission, needs to be more productive.

Philadelphia music fans will have reasons to cheer -make that three reasons to cheer -at the Grammys tomorrow night. Jill Scott, the street-smart and utterly humane home girl blessed with a touch of jazz and the soul of poet, is up for three Grammy Awards -Best R&B Album, Best R&B Vocal Performance and Best New Artist for her debut set, "Who Is Jill Scott? Words And Sounds Vol. 1. " We were thrilled to get Jill on the line in L.A. the other day, just before rehearsals commenced for the award show.

In its first four games, Temple scored 15 points and averaged 200 yards. The Owls were shut out three times. They started out 0-4. Again. Which kind of made a lot of folks wonder why second-year coach Bobby Wallace switched from the option offense that took him to three consecutive Division II national championships earlier this decade at North Alabama to Kentucky's "Air Raid" passing game. In its last four games, Temple has averaged 30 points and 409 yards. The Owls have won twice and lost one on a field goal in the final seconds.

Interboro basketball coach Lew Garrison had no problem coming up with a nickname for junior forward Brian Culley. "I call him 'Dirt,' " Garrison said. "It's because he does all the dirty work. He rebounds. He plays defense. He does all the things that don't get a lot of headlines. " The 6-foot-1 Culley spent last season on the Interboro JV team. He played in the spring. He played with the Bucs in the summer. Garrison liked what he saw then, so he isn't surprised by what Culley - who averages a team-leading five assists and has a 4-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio - is doing now. "He played his tail off in the off-season," Garrison said.

There is more than one way for a closer to earn a save. For verification, check with Phillies starter Curt Schilling and ask him how reliever Mark Leiter, at least in part, recently saved his season. Galen Cisco is the Phillies' pitching coach, but Leiter is a grizzled veteran at age 35, and he possesses a wicked splitter (much of the time, anyway). So, when Schilling sensed the pitch had deserted him, he sidled over to Leiter one day and demanded, "Show me your grip on that thing.
