CHICAGO - It has been a dream season for the Chicago Cubs, but they might not be in the middle of this compelling postseason if not for the misfortune of the National League Central rival Pittsburgh Pirates. The three players that the Cubs acquired from the Pirates at midseason - Kenny Lofton, Aramis Ramirez and Randall Simon - all made significant contributions to the club's division title drive, and all have had an impact on the postseason. Lofton, in particular, has been the catalyst for a Cubs offense that entered Game 6 averaging 5.2 runs a game, even after factoring in Josh Beckett's overpowering performance in Game 5. Lofton came into last night with a .349 postseason average, 15 hits, 10 runs and four stolen bases.

On the field: Before he made the two great defensive plays in the bottom of the 12th and set up the game-winning rally in the top of the 13th, Kenny Lofton was having a bad day. He had one hit in six at-bats and struck out twice, and in the fifth inning, Lofton was thrown out stealing. All day, he'd been arguing with umpires.In the dugout: Orioles manager Davey Johnson usually doesn't like using closer Randy Myers in tie games. Because of the injuries to Roger McDowell and Arthur Rhodes, however, Johnson has been forced to use his veteran relievers in unusual ways.

Brian Daubach, who went 2-for-5, is 6-for-15 with seven RBIs in the first five games of the homestand. Royals: Chuck Knoblauch's home run was his first RBI of the season. It came in his 44th at-bat. White Sox: Frank Thomas had his 11-game hitting streak stopped, going 0-for-4.

For those sports fans who cannot discuss baseball until the NBA playoffs are over, keep reading. Several major leaguers enjoyed stellar high school and college basketball careers and probably are watching the pro playoffs with keen interest. This week's selection is in honor of those men who chose baseball over their basketball hi-tops.Delino DeShields -- winner-- Wears his socks high in honor of Negro Leagues. Has a sense of history and a bright future.Dave Winfield -- loser-- Winnie's hanging on for 500 home runs, but as a right-handed designated hitter he doesn't get many at bats.

NLCS by the numbers 1: Mike Remlinger's saves past 3 years before last night. 6: Consecutive hits by Kenny Lofton over two games. 2 : Doug Glanville's postseason ABs in 13 pro years. 1: HRs last night; there were 13 in the first 2 games. MIAMI - The Chicago Cubs rode the talented arm of Kerry Wood to a crossroads in the National League Championship Series last night. Then they went the last mile without him. Wood pitched well in Game 3, but not well enough to win. The Cubs had to go 11 innings to score a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins before a sellout crowd of 65,115 at Pro Player Stadium.

SAN FRANCISCO -- They are not Barry Bonds. There is only one of this species. Only one man on the planet could make opposing managers sweat through hours upon tedious hours of endless second-guessing: What do you do with Barry Bonds? The problem is, no matter what scheme a baseball manager could devise to attempt to thwart the greatest, most dangerous living offensive threat in baseball, the San Francisco Giants turned out to be a force not to be denied. The St. Louis Cardinals found that out last night.

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.

Due to an editing error in yesterday's final edition, a quote from the Orioles' Roberto Alomar was attributed to his brother, the Cleveland Indians' Sandy Alomar Jr., incorrectly stating his free-agent status. Sandy Alomar is signed with the Indians through next season with a club option through 2000.The Sun regrets the error.DENVER -- For one night, he was the old Robbie Alomar, beating out a bunt single, stealing a base, hitting a home run.Showcase, anyone?This is what happens when Alomar wants to play.

For years, the Orioles hoped for the chance to acquire Roberto Alomar. Now they're at least entertaining the idea of trading the second baseman, and may have talked to the Cleveland Indians about a deal for center fielder Kenny Lofton.Orioles general manager Pat Gillick confirmed yesterday that club officials have talked about trading Alomar, as they have many other players. "Basically, we would try to move anybody [in a direction] we think might help the team," Gillick said.But when asked whether the Orioles discussed a possible trade for Lofton, Gillick danced around the question.
