Leiter throws a no-no

MIAMI - Al Leiter, the wildest pitcher in the American League last season, pitched

the first no-hitter in Florida's brief history and baseball's first this season Saturday night as the Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 11-0.

Leiter (6-2), who led the AL in walks and wild pitches last season while with Toronto, made his eighth NL start and first against the Rockies a memorable one.

Brian Lewis rules sprints at Modesto

MODESTO, Calif. - Brian Lewis put together a good start and a strong finish to win Saturday's 100 meters at the Modesto Invitational track meet.

The formula worked so well he did the same thing in winning the 200 a couple hours later for his first double of the year.

Lewis ran the 100 in 10.03 seconds, a personal best and the fifth-fastest time in the world this year behind the 9.95 is the fastest by an American this year.

Lewis held off Anthony Barnes (10.18) and Rickey Carrigan (10.19) for his second straight 100 victory.

Lewis, who covered the 200 in a personal-best 20.54, said he likes the way he has been running heading into next month's Olympic Trials at Atlanta.
