Ivan Rodriguez circled the bases pumping his fist, then pointed at the jubilant, towel-twirling crowd before he crossed the plate. That was in the first inning after Rodriguez's two-run homer. Nearly 4 hours later, he found himself in the middle of an even bigger celebration. The catcher nicknamed "Pudge" lined a two-run single with two outs in the 11th inning yesterday to cap a comeback by the Florida Marlins, who beat San Francisco 4-3 and took a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series.

The deal would contain $1.5 million in performance bonuses based on games and plate appearances, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been announced by the team.

The 250,000th homer in major-league history came during the Tigers' 14-8 win over Oakland. "It really probably won't hit me until I get one or two away," Sheffield said of reaching 500. "Really, to me, four isn't close. You have to be at one or two. I can hit two in a game; I've never hit three.

The chinchilla cage at the Quaker School at Horsham won't remain empty for long. School administrator Tim Stonehouse yesterday was sorting through four offers for replacements for the pets - Pudge and Dini - that were found bludgeoned to death early this week. The offers came from as far away as Kansas and as close as a chinchilla ranch outside Horsham. They also came from a 10-year-old boy and a cancer patient and his wife. Stonehouse said the school was "very excited" about the response and eager to replace the two pets.

With all the sequels and remakes these days, you were probably wondering when Hollywood would try another remake of "Where the Boys Are," the atrociously square 1960 movie that starred Connie Francis, George Hamilton and Frank "The Riddler" Gorshin. Well, it's here, and it's bad. The movie is called "Shag," and it stars a bunch of people who are relatives of famous actors and actresses - Page Hannah (sister of Daryl), Bridget Fonda (daughter of Peter) and Tyrone Power Jr. That's a bit of a twist on "Where the Boys Are," which starred the father (Jim Hutton)

The Hall of Fame has asked lefthander Jamie Moyer for some sort of memorabilia to commemorate his record-setting game on Tuesday, when the 49-year-old became the oldest pitcher ever to win a major-league contest. Moyer wasn't sure whether the Hall wanted his glove or maybe his whole Colorado Rockies uniform, but he said he would send something to Cooperstown. "To have your name mentioned with great players of the past or Hall of Fame players, it's pretty special," the former Phillie said after his seven efficient innings beat the San Diego Padres, 5-3. Moyer is 49 years and 150 days old. Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers was 49 years and 70 days old on Sept.

Detroit's Kenny Rogers, whose smudged left hand created a lot of suspicion during the World Series, won his fourth straight Gold Glove and fifth overall yesterday. Rogers did not have any fielding fumbles - Detroit Tigers pitchers made five errors in the five-game Series - but he did have a brownish smudge on his pitching hand in the first inning of Game 2. Whether it was dirt, pine tar or something else may never be known. St. Louis manager Tony La Russa never urged umpires to check Rogers' hand and instead merely asked them to make sure whatever it was went away.
