Highs and lows

Highs

MIKE HAMPTON: The Crystal River graduate and current Rockies ace beat his former team, the Mets, with the 11th complete-game shutout in Coors Field history.

MONARCHOS: While Point Given and Laffit Pincay dominated the advance coverage, the 6-1 shot ruled the day at the Kentucky Derby, covering the 1 1/4-mile course in 1:59 4/5, two-fifths short of Secretariat's record.

BRAD RADKE: The former Jesuit High right-hander pitched 8 1/3 innings for the Twins Sunday in beating Kansas City 4-2 to become the first pitcher to win six games on the new season.

ALLEN IVERSON, RANDY JOHNSON, MARIO LEMIEUX, SHAQUILLE O'NEIL, ANNIKA SORENSTAM: You won't find any more amazing performances than what this fab five pulled off last week.

Lows

ELIAS SPORTS BUREAU: Even though Randy Johnson fanned 20 in nine innings, baseball's official record keeper won't list him as the co-holder of the record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game because the Reds and Diamondbacks played extra innings. Somewhere, Roger Maris is ticked.

VINNY CASTILLA: Let's waive the traditional waiting period and elect him straight to the Alvin Harper Hall of Fame.
