NEW YORK -- Reporting significant progress in his physical condition, Cal Ripken made his fourth consecutive start last night in the Orioles' 6-3 loss to the New York Yankees. The spasms in his lower back that caused him to miss two games and leave the opener prematurely have subsided, but Ripken said he continues to deal with "personal issues" revolving around the death of his father on March 25."Reality is reality. We all go through things in our lives, no matter what you do. We all deal with them in slightly different ways.

Dave Wohlers leaned against the cold laboratory bench, gripping a white cane. He listened as the three blind girls across the bench struggled with their experiment. "Oh, I dropped the wire," one girl said. "I'll get it," replied another. Her stool screeched across the tile floor of the Johns Hopkins University chemistry lab as she climbed down to grope for the wire. The girls were building an electrolytic cell, a power source of the sort that might one day fuel ultra-green cars. Such technical projects are difficult, even for students with good eyes.

CINCINNATI -- His mother, Irene, is a factory worker, and his father, Fred, is a welder. Braves reliever Mark Wohlers knew growing up that holding down a regular job would be something he would have to do his entire adult life.He washed dishes at age 14, at an Italian restaurant called Mel's, moved up to busboy, squirted condiments at a Subway shop. When the Major League Baseball Players Association went on strike, Wohlers found a job at a automobile body shop. Pay: $10 an hour."I think when I first started working there the other guys there thought I was going to be some hot shot, not really pulling my load," Wohlers said.

ATLANTA -- Braves general manager John Schuerholz stood on the field yesterday and replayed some of the bizarre moments from Atlanta's 8-6 loss in Game 4 of the World Series on Wednesday night. The New York Yankees' two swinging bunts. A missed double-play ball. An umpire obstructing a Braves outfielder and possibly preventing him from making a catch."You could make a laundry list of it all," said Schuerholz.But what he remembers most of all is the pitch that Mark Wohlers threw to Jim Leyritz in the eighth inning, a hanging slider that Leyritz bashed over the left-field wall for a three-run homer, tying the game at 6-6Fox showed that pitch again and again, in slow motion, and Schuerholz watched in his private box. The replay "shows each and every spin of the pitch, and it seemed like it would never reach the plate.

On the field: Atlanta hit the ball hard in Game 4, getting five extra-base hits -- two doubles from Javy Lopez, a double apiece from Luis Polonia and Fred McGriff, and a bases-empty homer from Ryan Klesko.In the dugout: Mark Wohlers pitched 2 2/3 innings in the Braves' 11-inning loss in Game 3, and even manager Bobby Cox admitted before Game 4 that he wasn't entirely sure if Wohlers would be able to pitch. But strangely, Wohlers started the ninth with the Braves leading 5-1 and gave up a homer and a double before being replaced by left-hander Pedro Borbon Jr., who got the last three outs to pick up the save.

Astros: Craig Biggio has hit in 31 of his past 39 games.Braves: Manager Bobby Cox is planning a closer-by-committee TC setup for a few games to give Mark Wohlers a chance to break out of his slump with less pressure. Wohlers surrendered a run in the eighth inning and has given up six hits, seven earned runs and eight walks in 6 2/3 innings since coming off the disabled list May 24. John Smoltz, who has been on the disabled list for 2 1/2 weeks with a sore elbow, will make a three-inning rehabilitation start today for Double-A Greenville.

ATLANTA -- The question lurking in the back of everyone's mind at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium last night was this: Would it be deja blew all over again for the rocky bullpen of the Colorado Rockies?It surfaced as the Rockies took an early three-run lead on the Atlanta Braves in Game 3 of their National League divisional series. It stayed there as the Braves, trailing by a run headed into the bottom of the ninth and looking to sweep the Rockies, tied the game.But after blowing late leads in each of the first three games, one of Colorado's beleaguered relievers finally provided the right answer in an exhausting yet exhilarating 7-5, victory in 10 innings.

ATLANTA -- They rallied in the regular season, winning 27 games in their final at-bat. And they rallied in the postseason, winning a five-hour marathon in their opener against Boston, then the final three games against Seattle.The Cleveland Indians are a gifted team, a clutch team, a fiery team. But the only way they'll be considered a great team is if they pull off one of the biggest comebacks in World Series history. A comeback from a two-games-to-none deficit against Atlanta that could require two victories over Greg Maddux.

ATLANTA -- Atlanta Braves reliever Mark Wohlers said he made a good pitch to Lenny Webster yesterday. Right where he wanted it."It just went out," he said.And that's just the way it went for Atlanta during its introduction to the Orioles and interleague play. A good pitch brought nothing but bad results.With two outs in the 10th inning and Cal Ripken on first, Webster took a fastball that caught a little too much of the plate and hit it over the right-field scoreboard, just far enough to elude the leaping attempt of Andruw Jones and break a 3-3 tie. It was Webster's second homer of the season, the 18th of his career.

ATLANTA -- He took a mediocre postseason record and an ERA nearly twice his career average into Game 6 of the National League Championship Series last night at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. He took the memories of his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, including a hanging slider that wound up as a grand slam.Then Greg Maddux remembered who he was.A four-time Cy Young winner.The best pitcher this decade.The man.In this case, Maddux proved to be the ultimate setup man last night. In a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals, he made certain there would be a Game 7 tonight and, quite possibly, another World Series for the Atlanta Braves on Saturday in New York.

CLEVELAND -- The Atlanta Braves' seemingly comfortable lead suddenly wasn't so comfortable. Cleveland's Manny Ramirez had led off the ninth inning with a home run and Paul Sorrento had followed with a ringing double. The Braves led 5-2 last night, but closer Mark Wohlers was leaving the mound, ineffective after pitching 2 2/3 innings the night before, and Cleveland seemed on the verge of putting together one of its patened last-ditch comebacks.But then manager Bobby Cox called on an unlikely hero for Atlanta: left-hander Pedro Borbon Jr., son of the former Reds reliever.
