ATLANTA -- The headline in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution read thusly yesterday morning: "Justice takes a rip at Braves fans."David Justice didn't like the headline, nor the angle of the story. But he did not back off his statement that he felt Atlanta fans hadn't supported the team as strongly as they had in 1991.A crowd of reporters surrounded Justice before yesterday's game, and at first, he said he would not talk to journalists at length any more. "All that conversation," Justice said, "that's over.

NEW YORK - David Justice, still glowing from his three-run homer that rescued the New York Yankees from possible defeat and assured that an October story line wouldn't be deleted, tried to imagine how a Subway Series would play in the city that never sleeps. "The Mets and Yankees - New York's going to be on fire," he said. Hopefully, it was meant only as a figure of speech. Justice struck the match on Tuesday, reaching the third deck with his seventh-inning blast off Seattle reliever Arthur Rhodes, wiping away a 4-3 deficit and thrusting the Yankees into the World Series.

He wasn't supposed to return until June at the earliest, but there was Kenny Lofton in center field for the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards yesterday, creating havoc for the opposition as usual. "We never thought Kenny was going to start the season," said Indians shortstop Omar Vizquel, the defensive hero of the 4-1 victory that spoiled the Orioles' opener. "He insisted he was going to be on the opening-day roster and we didn't believe it." Believe it. His recovery from a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder climaxed with a go-ahead home run off Mike Mussina and run-scoring single in the eighth inning that capped Cleveland's clinching rally.

ATLANTA -- There are flameouts and then there are flameouts, but few flameouts are quite like the pyrotechnics the Atlanta Braves pulled off here last night in the seventh game of the National League Championship Series.Just one out from giving back a 3-1 series lead to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Braves staged an incredible ninth-inning comeback to win, 3-2.Reserve catcher Francisco Cabrera slapped a hit to left field on a 2-1 pitch with two out in the bottom of the ninth to drive in David Justice and Sid Bream with the tying and winning runs and give the Braves their second straight National League title.

CLEVELAND -- The Orioles were handed an embarrassment of opportunities last night by the Cleveland Indians but left town only embarrassed. Whatever optimism they cultivated over the previous week was punctured in a 6-5 loss that represented a rip-off of starting pitcher Mike Mussina, more waste from an offense without a clutch and more questions about a bullpen that was overextended in the previous night's loss.Unable to protect an earlier three-run lead, the Orioles were undone by the Indians' three-run eighth inning, culminating in David Justice's two-out, two-strike, two-run single off closer Mike Timlin (2-1)

For all the clamor around Ken Griffey's locker after yesterday's Gatorade Home Run Derby at the All-Star workout, you'd have thought he'd won something.Griffey did become the first player to hit the B&O warehouse behind right field at Camden Yards on the fly with a batted ball, but he didn't win the competition.That distinction went to Juan Gonzalez, who may have done structural damage to the joint, slugging the two longest blasts in Oriole Park history to beat Griffey in two extra sessions.

PHILADELPHIA -- As dumb questions go, baseball variety, this one qualified for a Golden Dunce Cap.Yo, Jim, somebody asked the manager after the Philadelphia Phillies completed their sweep of the Florida Marlins last Wednesday night, will you try to send the Atlanta Braves a message this weekend?Message?"Message? Cheese Whiz," Jim Fregosi grumped. "I hope we would win three games, that's the only message I have for anybody. Crepes suzette. The Braves need the wins. We need the wins."The Phillies sent the Atlanta Braves a powerful message, anyway, a swinging telegram as it were:Dear Braves,We can handle your power.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Before the age of satellit television and baseball card shows, it would take a good baseball player years to become a celebrity.Apparently, Dave Justice has done it in two months.Oops. That's David Justice."I've always been known as David," Justice announced upon arriving for spring training as the sudden star of the Atlanta Braves. "That's just the way it is."So, the Braves' media guide and posters and all those baseball books are wrong? So, even his friends in his hometown of Cincinnati are wrong?

Indians: David Justice was scratched from the starting lineup with a bruised right foot. Catcher Sandy Alomar began a rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Akron on Monday night. Manny Ramirez has homered in three of the past four games and nine of 20.Red Sox: Troy O'Leary went 0-for-3, ending his 13-game hitting streak. The string ended one game short of matching his career high set last season.Tigers: The infield at Tiger Stadium had a new look as about five feet of sod was removed to extend the base paths toward left and right.

CLEVELAND -- There was a hyper-extended left elbow that put him on the disabled list in June and out of the All-Star Game at Jacobs Field. There is a partially torn tendon in his left knee that will require surgery after the season is over. There is a jammed shoulder hurt diving back on a pickoff play in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series.Things are back to normal for David Justice.Except for this: Justice is still playing.A reputation for not always playing hurt during his eight years with the Atlanta Braves has been overcome during his first season with the Cleveland Indians, largely due to the luxury of being used as a designated hitter.

ATLANTA -- The night the Atlanta Braves doused each other with champagne to celebrate their victory over the Colorado Rockies in the divisional series, reserve outfielder Mike Devereaux stood on the fringes sheepishly, not really feeling that he had done enough to share in the revelry.He had not taken part in the long march. He had shown up in late August, one of those hired guns that every contending team seeks out in late summer. It wouldn't have been right.That was nine days ago, and a lot can change in nine days.
