Bobby Cox, his eyes downcast as he fidgeted with the red bill of his cap, shifted his weight uncomfortably from one leg to the other yesterday afternoon. It was hard to tell what was more painful for the Braves' manager, his chronically ailing knees or the questions he was trying to answer politely but vaguely. "No, you just have to play this like any other game, like it's just a normal game," Cox said as about 15 of his players took part in a voluntary workout in preparation for tonight's Game 6 of the National League playoffs - possibly the last event in Fulton County Stadium.

The Phillies led by a run as Braves starter Tom Glavine pushed a blue helmet over his red hair and hurried to the plate to begin the seventh inning. On the mound, Cliff Brantley knew he would be inviting doom if he allowed the pitcher to reach base. When the Phils' righthander gave him a single and followed that with a pair of walks, he might as well have sent a chauffeur to doom's door. Glavine's hit ignited a seven-run Atlanta explosion in the final three innings as the Braves transformed a 3-2 deficit into a 9-3 victory over the Phillies last night at Veterans Stadium.

If you couldn't get to Atlanta from Philadelphia on Wednesday, there's little chance you will get there by air on Thursday. Ditto for Charlotte, N.C. With an impending ice-and-snow storm moving up the eastern seaboard from the Southeast, thousands of flights were canceled for Thursday in Philadelphia, Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington, Baltimore, New York City, and Boston. In anticipation of severe weather, US Airways canceled more than 900 flights out of 3,100 systemwide Wednesday, giving passengers an opportunity to rebook, said airline spokeswoman Michelle Mohr.
