MIAMI -- As Chad Ogea walked back to the Cleveland Indians' dugout after scoring in the fifth inning last night, he slipped his helmet under his left arm, tugged at his batting glove and tried to suppress a grin.The moment wouldn't allow it.Standing in against one of baseball's toughest pitchers, Florida's Kevin Brown, Ogea took a couple of whacks at the designated-hitter rule and made solid contact. He collected two hits, knocked in two runs and helped himself to a 4-1 victory in Game 6 of the World Series.

CLEVELAND -- Please, sir, drop the dice and walk away from the table.Unfortunately for the Cleveland Indians, no one bothered to give manager Mike Hargrove such advice before yesterday's showdown against the New York Yankees.Hargrove, never accused of being a manager of 1,000 moves, made one too many when he decided to start Chad Ogea over Jaret Wright in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. He and the Tribe may have all winter to think about it.Hargrove needed to see Ogea labor for only four outs before admitting his gamble was a mistake.

CLEVELAND -- Scott Kamieniecki and Chad Ogea will go into tonight's Game 5 of the American League Championship Series similarly oblivious to the situation that faces their respective teams.The 33-year-old Orioles right-hander and the 26-year-old Cleveland Indians right-hander will each be wearing psychological blinders when they take the mound at Jacobs Field."It's a great opportunity," Kamieniecki said last night before Game 4. "It's an important game."Said Ogea: "It's not going to change my approach.

MIAMI -- In October, the last thing we want is for our heroic figures to be too predictable. If they were, baseball wouldn't be the great and goofy sport it is.In, say, basketball, Michael Jordan knows he's supposed to be Michael Jordan. And Wil Perdue knows he's supposed to be Wil Perdue. Very logical. Very predictable.But in baseball, the heroes they scripted down in central casting turn into the bums. And the bums turn into the heroes.So for every Lenny Dykstra, there is a Brian Doyle.

Chad Ogea's first postseason appearance of the 1997 playoffs might be remembered for the one New York Yankees batter he didn't get out, rather than the 13 in a row he retired after that.That batter, Paul O'Neill, hit a monstrous, game-breaking grand slam off Ogea in Game 3 at Jacobs Field between the Yankees and Cleveland Indians. It turned a 2-1 deficit into a 6-1 defeat."I thought I threw the ball really well," Ogea said yesterday. "I got into a situation where I was facing their hottest hitter at the time.

He has won 23 games in parts of four major-league seasons, a pace that won't make anyone in Cleveland forget Bob Feller. But for one day, right-hander Chad Ogea sure looked the part.On May 23, in the opener of a three-game series at Jacobs Field, Ogea tied up the Orioles in knots. Brady Anderson and B. J. Surhoff each had a hit, Rafael Palmeiro and Tony Tarasco each drew a walk. And that was it.Ogea gave up an unearned run and struck out a career-high nine in Cleveland's 6-1 victory. He didn't allow a hit after the second inning, retiring the last 15 batters, and received a prolonged ovation after the final out.He has never been better, and the Orioles only can hope he doesn't have a flashback tonight when he starts opposite Scott Kamieniecki to close out this series.

MIAMI -- The Cleveland Indians have proved it over and over. They are the team that will not die.They came back in the Division Series. They upset the heavily favored Orioles in the American League Championship Series. And last night they pushed the 93rd World Series to the limit with a 4-1 victory over the Florida Marlins at Pro Player Stadium.Right-hander Chad Ogea made the sellout crowd of 67,498 do a double take, beating the Marlins with both his arm and -- believe it or not -- his bat. He pitched five strong innings to out-duel Marlins ace Kevin Brown for the second time in six days, and contributed a clutch two-run single that would be the only run-scoring hit of the game.

Mike Devereaux, released from the hospital a few hours after being hit on the left cheek by a pitch from Chad Ogea in the Orioles' 8-6 win over the Cleveland Indians yesterday, said he will be back in the lineup as soon as the swelling subsides.Devereaux homered, tripled, and drove in four runs, pushing his batting average (.211) above .200 at the end of a game for the first time since April 11. He has driven in nine runs in the past four games.Just when he had broken his slump, he feared he had broken something much worse.

MIAMI -- Former Orioles pitcher Kevin Brown has a chance to close out the World Series tonight and make up for a disappointing start in Game 2. Just don't expect him to get too excited over either prospect.Brown barely registered a pulse when discussing his assignment tonight, which could bring the Florida Marlins a championship after only five years of existence and deny the Cleveland Indians their first since 1948. The right-hander needs to be sharper than his previous appearance, when he allowed six runs and 10 hits in six innings, absorbing a 6-1 loss at Pro Player Stadium.

MIAMI -- The Orioles may not be in the World Series this year, but they can claim supremacy over the Florida Marlins in one department: They know how to beat Chad Ogea.They did it twice in the American League Championship Series, their only victories against Cleveland. Taking note of this, the Marlins threw some heavy punches at Ogea in Game 2 last night, and caught mostly air.Amateurs.Ogea gave the Indians 6 2/3 gritty innings and momentum, routinely escaping trouble in a 6-1 victory before 67,025 at Pro Player Stadium.

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians starter Chad Ogea made news before Game 4 by bluntly stating that Orel Hershiser cheats, a point Orioles manager Davey Johnson had raised on Saturday while complaining to umpires that the pitcher was moistening the ball by rubbing the back of his neck and going to his mouth.Ogea stunned a media gathering by saying, "I've known Orel for three years. He cheats. And just about everybody else does. Why not? He showed me how to cheat but said I couldn't use it until I was 35."
