On the field: With a runner on first and one out in the second inning, Orioles starter Mike Mussina thought he had struck out Mark Lemke on a 2-2 off-speed pitch on the outside half of the plate. Umpire Paul Nauert ruled it a ball, which brought an angry response from Mussina, whose next offering was grounded down the left-field line for a double that moved Jeff Blauser to third. Pitcher John Smoltz then worked the count to 3-1 before hitting a chopper to short that scored Blauser, giving Atlanta a 2-0 lead.

ATLANTA -- Mark Lemke drove home late Wednesday night after the game, accompanied by his mom and dad.And a parade of CBS-TV trucks right behind.Yes, you read it right. Mark Lemke now travels with an entourage."All we want to do," the producer explained to Lemke, who was having some problem grasping the concept, "is get a shot out of you getting out of the car and walking into the house."Talk about drama. Should he wave? Should he jump up the steps? What if he can't get the key to work?Mark Lemke, this is your life.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Somewhere along the line, people caught on to this World Series. They weren't supposed to. Not when you've got two basically nondescript teams from flyover land. Not when the poster boys are Terry Pendleton and Kirby Puckett. This one promised all the glamour of hog-calling.The Twins are, well, solid, and you know how solid sells -- it sells refrigerators and Volvos, not entertainment. Tina Turner, as an example, is not solid. Of course, the Braves have that wonderful young pitching staff, but I don't see Tom Glavine and John Smoltz doing Nike commercials.

MINNEAPOLIS -- When thousands remain frozen in their seats 20 minutes after the end of a game, still raucously cheering the memories of what they have just seen, you know it has been a great World Series.When the commissioner of baseball says it makes him reminisce about Carlton Fisk's homer in 1975 in the best October game he ever witnessed, you know it has been a great World Series.And when two wild games in a row end with a catcher and a baserunner sprawled in the dirt around home plate -- and the images of those plays won't leave your brain days later -- you know it has been a great World Series.

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves were growing tired of the late nights and the last-minute heroics, not that they hadn't enjoyed their heart-stopping victories in games 3 and 4 of the 88th World Series.But they had been waiting a long time to prove that they can swing something other than those silly little foam-rubber tomahawks, and last night they finally did.Right fielder David Justice drove in five runs and the unlikeliest hero -- platoon second baseman Mark Lemke -- had two more triples and three RBI, as the Braves battered the Twins, 14-5, before a sellout crowd of 50,878 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves finally brought the tomahawk down hard on the Minnesota Twins last night, winning the fifth game of the 88th World Series in a walkover and sending the Twins back to the Metrodome in a must-sweep situation.David Justice drove in five runs and the unlikeliest hero -- platoon Mark Lemke -- had two more triples and three RBI, as the Braves battered the Twins, 14-5, before a sellout crowd of 50,878 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.The Twins will have to wait at least until next year to get their first road win in World Series play since Walter Johnson won one for their ancestral Washington Senators in 1925, but they can make history repeat itself if they can win their remaining two games at home.
