If adversity builds character,

starting with crew chief Pete Rondeau.
Junior says that toughness has shown in
through recent tough times.

One driver who sympathizes with

Earnhardt is Ricky Rudd. Rudd has been
through the whole crew chief change,
and late last season was reunited with
Michael "Fatback" McSwain.

RICKY RUDD/39th IN POINTS RACE:

Junior can take some comfort in
the fact that he won at Bristol for the

ENG#=1 opens this Sunday night with the Red


Sox and Yankees, but this afternoon the
two AL east rivals played for the final
time in the preseason.

VO-NAT VO-NAT



Legends Field in Tampa hosted the
two teams this afternoon on a sunny,
blustery day on the Gulf Coast.

The Yankees wasted no time at all

in lighting up the Sox as Bernie
Williams slaps a single up the middle,
the throw back into the outfield is as
weak as it gets and Derek Jeter scores
to make it one to nothing Yankees.

But the Sox settled down and
starting firing up their up own bats.

In the top of the fourth Doug
Mirabelli rips a shot down the left
field line to score a run. And watch
the slide coming up at second and
Mirabelli avoids the tag with a little
leg work on the back of the base makes
the hand tag.

Mike Lockwood would star for the
Sox on this afternoon as he drove in
two runs including one in the sixth on
this triple to right field. *CG final Boston
