NEW YORK -- Ask Derek Jeter who's been the Yankees' MVP this season and he'll say third baseman Scott Brosius. Ask who leads the club in RBIs during the playoffs and the answer will be the same.Brosius ran his total to 10 in the first inning last night, grounding a single into left field to bring home Chili Davis for a 3-0 lead. He continues to distance himself from last season, when he hit .203 for Oakland and was dealt for pitcher Kenny Rogers in a transaction that didn't raise goosebumps among the Yankees' faithful.

NEW YORK - The New York Yankees followed Wednesday night's improbable win with the unbelievable last night. Alfonso Soriano's opposite-field, 12th-inning single off Albie Lopez scored Chuck Knoblauch to complete a carbon comeback from the night before and give the Yankees a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 5 of a rapidly shrinking World Series. Three innings before Soriano's game-winning hit, third baseman Scott Brosius extended the game with a two-out, two-run home run against star-crossed Diamondbacks closer Byung-Hyun Kim. Brosius' ninth-inning homer repeated the identical feat of first baseman Tino Martinez from the night before.

NEW YORK -- Another ninth-inning lead evaporated within the Orioles' bullpen yesterday, this time because Arthur Rhodes could not close a two-run lead. The ugly result was Scott Brosius' three-run homer inside the Yankee Stadium left-field foul pole that gave the New York Yankees a 6-5 win and the disintegrating Orioles a 10th consecutive loss.Once more the Orioles were left standing on the field as an opponent celebrated. They can no longer deny the overwhelming momentum."I think you can't help but have a carryover effect if you're going through the situation like we're going through," said third baseman Cal Ripken.

SEATTLE -- Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson knows a little something about "Yankee mystique," that intangible team chemistry that has made the New York Yankees the winningest professional sports franchise in history. So when Jackson stood at the batting cage yesterday afternoon and proclaimed that the Yankees had regained their swagger in the opening game of the American League Championship Series, it didn't bode well for the Seattle Mariners in the second game of the best-of-seven playoff.

SAN DIEGO -- If there was any remaining doubt that the 1998 New York Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball history, it disappeared into the clear California sky in the eighth inning last night.Third baseman Scott Brosius, the No. 9 hitter in the Yankees' batting order for most of the season, blasted a long three-run home run off super reliever Trevor Hoffman to overcome another late-inning deficit and send the San Diego Padres to a 5-4 defeat in Game 3 of the 94th World Series.That pretty much cinches it. Hoffman was the Padres' last line of defense.

SAN DIEGO -- Derek Jeter has said that Scott Brosius is the New York Yankees' MVP. Well, Brosius might be about to go one better. The guy who batted .203 last season for Oakland might be the World Series MVP.Brosius hit two home runs to lead the Yankees' comeback from a 3-0 deficit last night, shattering the San Diego Padres on a night they finally got Trevor Hoffman into a game; a night they appeared ready to make the World Series competitive.Forget it.Brosius' first homer punctured Sterling Hitchcock's shutout leading off the seventh inning, after San Diego had broken up David Cone's no-hitter by scoring three times in the sixth.

On the field: Had Brady Anderson's streak of 31 straight stolen-base attempts without being caught ended in the third inning last night, he would've had a good excuse. With a 3-2 count on Kevin Bass, Anderson took off running four times -- only to return when Bass fouled off each pitch. Anderson also dove back into first twice on pickoff attempts. Bass' at-bat finally ended when Bass grounded out to third and Anderson advanced to second. Two batters later, Anderson stole third, his 32nd straight, to tie the AL record.

He let Hirschbeck have it verbally, but didn't draw an ejection.

The New York Yankees made their annual visit to the White House yesterday afternoon to accept the congratulations of President Bush for their 2000 world championship. Compared to that, the mundane trappings of last night's game at Camden Yards probably didn't register on the adrenalin scale, but the Yankees still had enough energy to put the rebuilding Orioles in their place for the second night in a row. Third baseman Scott Brosius hit a towering home run off rookie reliever Chad Paronto to complete a late-inning comeback that carried the Yankees to a 6-5 victory before a crowd of 43,133.

NEW YORK - The Orioles were shut out before leaving the clubhouse yesterday, failing to have a single player chosen as a reserve for next week's All-Star Game. Andy Pettitte almost couldn't resist piling on. His teammates had no problem. Supported by home runs from Scott Brosius and Derek Jeter and a breakout sixth inning, Pettitte and the New York Yankees took a 12-6 victory over the Orioles last night at Yankee Stadium. New York carried a 10-0 lead into the seventh before the Orioles scored six times to splice some drama into what had developed into a rout.

ATLANTA -- If it's the World Series, Scott Brosius must be in a groove.Sure beats the rut he was in during the season.The New York Yankees' third baseman was named Most Valuable Player of last year's Fall Classic after batting .471 with two homers and six RBIs. The image of Brosius, shouting with his fist raised as he rounded first base, is one of the clearest of the '98 Series.He held the broom that swept the San Diego Padres, and he reached for it again on Saturday. Brosius collected three hits in Game 1, poking singles to left, center and right in New York's 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Mike Bordick will no longer be known as the slick-fielding, pesky shortstop for the Oakland A's. He has become The Shortstop Who Replaced Cal Ripken.That fact was not lost on Bordick when he decided to sign with the Orioles, ensuring Ripken's shift to third base. Bordick, 31, said he pondered the move, and the expectations that come with it, for weeks leading up to the signing. He concluded he was up to the challenge."I had a few reservations," Bordick said at a news conference at Camden Yards yesterday.
