ATLANTA -- Lemke?Are you serious?I read about a guy who won his second lottery jackpot, and they said the odds against were one in a couple trillion, and then you tell me about Lemke.This is a guy who was drafted in the 27th round, who took five years to get out of Class A, who's a .225 lifetime hitter, who thought he might get sent down in spring training, who is known as a defensive replacement and who is the hero of consecutive World Series games, both of which ended yesterday.This was the big sequel in town.

ATLANTA -- The witching hour had passed, and Atlanta Braves second baseman Mark Lemke spent several excruciating minutes wondering which it would be -- goat-hood or glory.Lemke's error in the top of the 12th inning set the Braves up for a classic fall, but they were still standing when he came to the plate in the bottom of the inning and delivered a dramatic single to give the club a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins in the third game of the 88th World Series.There was plenty of intrigue in between.

ATLANTA -- It's only proper that in this worst-to-first World Series, the meek shall inherit the earth. Book it: Tonight's hero will be either Minnesota's Jarvis Brown or Atlanta's Francisco Cabrera. You've never heard of them, so watch out.Not that this Series is getting ridiculous or anything, but the Braves won, 3-2, last night on a ninth-inning triple by that noted power threat, second baseman Mark Lemke, and a sacrifice fly by that fearsome pinch-hitter, reserve catcher Jerry Willard.

ATLANTA -- Let's interrupt Lemkemania, just for a minute, to bring you this little update: Braves 3 wins, Twins 2.The worst-worst-worst-to-first Braves, right here in the loserville capital of America, are one win away from a world championship. It would be the city's first in 82 professional seasons of Hawks, Falcons, Flames (deceased) and, of course, Braves, who had averaged more than 100 losses in their previous three seasons.They're one win away, and they go back to the MonstroDome, trying to get it starting tomorrow.

ATLANTA -- Shades of 1970.The play that ended Game 4 of the World Series here last night created a flashback of the famed Elrod Hendricks-Bernie Carbo play at home plate in Game 3 of the 1970 World Series between Baltimore and Cincinnati -- but there is one difference.In 1970, nobody was right. Last night, replays gave every indication that umpire Terry Tate saw the play exactly as it happened. Minnesota catcher Brian Harper fielded a throw from Shane Mack and made contact with runner Mark Lemke in front of home plate.

ATLANTA -- Among the categories in which the Atlanta Braves held a decided edge over the Pittsburgh Pirates at the outset of the National League Championship Series was the speed ratings. But much of that advantage was predicated on Atlanta's --ing pair of center fielders, Otis Nixon and Deion Sanders. Sid Bream's legs weren't a major concern to Pittsburgh scouts.With good reason, it should be noted. The man underwent a fourth operation on his right knee during the 1991 season. Nor has the left knee remained unscathed during his professional career, although it has been cut only once.

CINCINNATI -- A clutch hit is an elusive concept to Cincinnati right fielder Reggie Sanders these days, which makes him no different than the rest of the Reds. He tried to explain why, after the Reds repeatedly blew chances to break a tie before losing to Atlanta in 10 innings last night, 6-2, in Game 2 of the NLCS.Sometimes it's anxiousness, Sanders said. You swing at pitches out of the strike zone, or maybe it's because of the Braves pitching. Sounding confused, he stopped suddenly. Paused.

Tom and Lorrie Lemke, a young San Diego couple, recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show to discuss their thrifty lifestyle. As Mr. Lemke enthusiastically described clipping coupons, making pasta at home, and hunting for early bird restaurant specials, the audience snickered.But the group wasn't laughing when the Lemkes, parents of two small children, said they have managed to save $50,000 in the past four years."Some people think we're nickel-and-diming it, but those nickels and dimes are going to add up and going to help put our kids through college," Mr. Lemke said.
