Quote: "Yeah, I'd be nervous if I was a fan." -- Steve Avery of the Red Sox, whose wild-card lead has dropped to three.It's a fact: Jeff Branson's six pinch hits are the most by an Indians player since Jerry Browne had 11 in 1991.Who's hot: The Athletics' Jason Giambi has reached base in his past 29 games.Who's not: Since moving a season-high 26 games over .500 on Aug. 26, the Red Sox are 5-12.On deck: The Rangers' Aaron Sele (18-10) and the Red Sox's Pedro Martinez (18-5) go for their 19th victories tonight.

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves never do anything the easy way, so it should have come as no surprise that they needed 12 innings to chop the Minnesota Twins down to size.Never mind that Steve Avery appeared to have the game under control through the seventh. Never mind that stopper Alejandro Pena had not blown a save in 14 regular and postseason opportunities for the club before last night. Never mind that the tomahawk-waving crowd at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was right in there with them.

PITTSBURGH -- Since the league championship series format was instituted in 1969, the Atlanta Braves never had won a game.Last night, an unintimidated youngster who scoffed at playoff pressure changed that history of futility.Steve Avery turned the Pittsburgh Pirates' bats into mush before a record 57,533 at Three Rivers Stadium, tossing a masterful six-hitter over 8 1/3 innings to give the Braves their first NL playoff victory in eight starts, 1-0.The Pirates, who led the National League in runs, did not manage an extra-base hit until the ninth inning, had only three runners in scoring position and threatened seriously just three times against Avery.

Eric Davis and Kelly Gruber were out of baseball two years ago, their careers seemingly over. Today, they are the newest members of the Orioles.Davis, who came back to hit 26 homers and steal 23 bases for the Cincinnati Reds last season, signed a one-year contract for $2.2 million to play left or right field for the Orioles.Gruber, who last played for the California Angels in 1993, will try to come back and win a job as an extra infielder and outfielder. He signed a minor-league contract that will pay him a base salary of $300,000 should he win a job with the Orioles.

Listen, we love David Cone. Love him as a pitcher. Love him as a competitor. Love the idea of pairing him with Mike Mussina to give the Orioles two No. 1 starters.Still, if you're general manager Pat Gillick, and you can afford one major free agent, why would you sign an overworked 32-year-old pitcher over a 27-year-old franchise second baseman?Or, viewed from another perspective, why would you spend $2.5 million on a veteran closer when you can employ a bullpen-by- committee and use the savings to pursue both Cone and Alomar?

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.

ATLANTA -- During today's optional workout at Three Rivers Stadium, the Pittsburgh Pirates will likely tell themselves there is still a chance they can win the National League Championship Series.And, technically, they'll be correct, since the Atlanta Braves still need two more wins after dismantling the Pirates, 13-5, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium yesterday to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.The problem with the Pirates' wishful thinking is that it assumes that somehow they will have some success cracking the Braves' seemingly unassailable pitching and their potent batting attack.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies-Atlanta Braves weekend series was billed as a National League playoff preview. And though the Braves won two of three, it's Atlanta that is more uncertain about a spot in the postseason."
