Matt Smith learned his lessons early about big-time college football. A much sought-after quarterback from Mount Lebanon (Pa.) High, Smith never heard the words defensive back from the coaches at Stanford until the day he arrived. But from the first day of practice, he never took a snap at quarterback. After one season, Smith decided to transfer. He called San Diego State. They'd love to have him, they said. But when he called back, they kept putting him off. The same with Virginia.

Matt Smith ripped a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the 11th inning, and reliever Tim Grieve preserved the lead as the Wilmington Blue Rocks won the Carolina League championship with a 6-4 victory over the Kinston Indians last night.

Bensalem's offense sputtered on a brisk Tuesday afternoon, but the right arm of Zach Hizer kept the Owls afloat en route to a 5-1 win at Council Rock South in a Suburban One League National Conference baseball game. The Owls (9-1 overall, 6-1 league) recorded just one hit, but it came during their four-run second inning. Bensalem failed even to get another runner on base until the seventh inning. But thanks to Hizer, and some fancy glove work, that was enough. "That's the way we've been all year," Bensalem coach Rick Lee said.

Geoff Jenkins is in such a slump that manager Charlie Manuel chose Jayson Werth over him to face Texas Rangers righthander Vicente Padilla last night at Rangers Ballpark. Jenkins entered last night hitless in his last 26 at-bats with just two hits in his last 41 at-bats. "We're trying to get him to try some things to get him going again," Manuel said. "He's receptive, but he's been struggling. He's a member of those guys who have been struggling. " Jenkins has been working with Manuel and hitting coach Milt Thompson on solving a bad habit he picked up recently.

During the District 1 Class AAA boys' soccer tournament, a buzz began to surround the contending Ches-Mont League teams. One by one, the squads worked their way through the tournament in dramatic and dominating fashion, no matter their seeds, often winning in overtime or by overcoming opponents on penalty kicks. That buzz, which has grown steadily with every upset and victory, has gotten only louder now as three representatives of the Ches-Mont have reached the state quarterfinals.

Matt Smith played the second half five minutes at a time. The senior right back for West Chester Rustin knew he couldn't think too far ahead with his team's opponent in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA state boys' soccer tournament, Father Judge, The Inquirer's top-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania. So as the clock went from 40 minutes to 35 to 30, he breathed a little sigh of relief. Not too heavy a sigh, though - he had too much work to do. Five minutes closer to a win, he thought to himself.

The list is impressive and one Matt Smith will have memorized in no time. Barry Bonds, Carlos Delgado, Brian McCann and Shawn Green. They are some of the more notable lefthanded hitters in the National League, and Smith is likely to face them in crucial situations this season as the only lefthanded pitcher in the Phillies' bullpen. The Phillies yesterday optioned lefthanders Fabio Castro and Eude Brito to minor-league camp, all but assuring Smith of a job. "I don't envy you," righthander Ryan Madson told Smith.
