It's rare, in the course of interviewing movie stars about their new film, that one of the actors leans over and smacks another in the head, then rips a soggy bagel out of his mouth. It's simply not done in most proper social settings, even among pampered film actors. But then, most movie stars aren't Jacob and Adam Worton, the blond, blue- eyed, 19-month-old identical twins who make their acting debuts - actually, their crawling, grinning and drooling debuts - in the new comedy Baby's Day Out. "WWAAAAAHHH!

With a doubleheader sweep of visiting Minnesota, the New York Yankees edged closer to clinching their seventh straight AL East title. Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez rallied the Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the AL Central champions in the opener, a possible playoff preview matching New York's Mike Mussina and Minnesota's Johan Santana. Jon Lieber then won his 100th career game and fifth consecutive decision in the nightcap, with New York beating the Twins, 5-4, behind Hideki Matsui's second homer of the day and 30th of the season, a three-run drive in the first.

" The Twins won for the eighth time in 10 games, and are 41-21 since falling 12 games behind the Tigers on July 13. Jason Tyner had three hits and Torii Hunter and Phil Nevin each drove in two runs for the Twins.

The Minnesota Twins' 6-1 victory over visiting Baltimore yesterday was overshadowed by news of a fistfight last week between Twins leftfielder Dan Gladden and second baseman Steve Lombardozzi. The altercation apparently took place at Gladden's home last Thursday, an off day. Lombardozzi arrived for Friday's game against Baltimore with a black eye and scratches down the swollen left side of his face. Gladden suffered a cracked bone in his right ring finger, and his forehead still shows signs of the battle.

The shooting deaths of a brother and sister - 25-year-old twins who relatives say did everything together - have puzzled police and relatives. Dennis Floyd and Denise Floyd-Pressberry were each shot once in the head yesterday morning while sitting in a car in the parking lot of a West Philadelphia public housing project. Police say they have no suspects, and they were trying to determine why the twins drove to the West Park Plaza project at 44th and Market streets, where they were killed.

Twin brothers accused of causing a SEPTA trolley wreck that injured 57 people in Haverford Township in December were found delinquent yesterday in Delaware County Court. The verdict had the same effect as a conviction, had they been tried as adults, on 57 counts of aggravated assault and one each of causing a catastrophe and conspiracy, according to County Common Pleas Judge John V. Diggins. Diggins found the 15-year-old twins, residents of Upper Darby, delinquent after a four-day hearing that was closed to the public.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Scwarzenegger are twins. Get it? You see, Schwarzenegger is really huge and DeVito is really tiny, and they're supposed to be twins, who usually look at least a little like each other. Funny, huh? Did you follow that? Schwarzenegger and DeVito? Well, yes, "Twins" is a one-joke movie. Luckily, it's not a bad joke. And luckily, the film doesn't hit you over the head with it - representing a surprising restraint for something directed by Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters," "Stripes")

Twin Guatemalan girls who spent the first year of life joined at the top of the head have opened their eyes and shown other promising movement nearly three days after being surgically separated, doctors said yesterday. Maria de Jesus Quiej-Alvarez and her twin Maria Teresa remain in critical condition on respirators at Mattel Children's Hospital at the University of California at Los Angeles. Earlier yesterday, UCLA said just one twin, Maria de Jesus, had briefly fluttered her eyes after being taken off drugs that prevented the twins from injuring their brains by coughing or moving in the very early stages of recovery.

Hours after free-agent pitcher Jack Morris and the Twins were unable to agree on proposals ranging from a two-year, $3.9 million contract to a four- year, $6.8 million deal, Phillies president Bill Giles said last night that Morris could forget about playing in Veterans Stadium if he came to Philadelphia armed with those figures. "To be very candid about it, if he has those numbers in mind, he may as well not come to Philadelphia," said Giles, whose team is one of four for which Morris said he would be interested in playing.

The Minnesota Twins moved a step closer to North Carolina when baseball appointed a five-man committee yesterday to guide the team through the sport's relocation rules. "Carl Pohlad has tried everything to stay in Minnesota," acting commissioner Bud Selig said. "It's very frustrating. " The Minnesota Legislature last week defeated a proposal to finance a new ballpark, and Pohlad has an agreement with North Carolina businessman Don Beaver to negotiate a sale unless stadium financing is approved by Nov. 30. If he buys the Twins, Beaver has said would apply to move the team to North Carolina following the 1998 season.
