FRIDAY 9/30

White Sox at Indians

Pronk! Last week Cleveland DH Travis Hafner (above)--dubbed Pronk by his teammates (it's a combination of his two old nicknames, Project and Donkey)--homered in six straight games to help the Tribe pull within 2 1/2 games of Chicago in the AL Central. Tonight's game is the first of a season-ending three-game set that should decide the division. Check listings, 7 p.m.

In the rubber match, in Tampa, Jones's father, Big Roy, will be in his corner for the first time in 11 years. Said Tarver, "I think it's good because his father is the only one with the compassion to throw in the towel when he sees his son in over his head." HBO PPV 9 p.m.
