There were strategic second-guesses and there were shifts in the ebb and flow of the game that could have been measured by the Richter scale. There were so many players shuttling in and out that you really couldn't tell them without a scorecard. And, in the end, there was redemption. There was redemption for Braves rightfielder David Justice, who helped cost Atlanta the fifth game of the National League Championship Series when he was called out for failing to touch third on his way to the plate.

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.

ATLANTA - Mario Hollands' season started in November, when he pitched for La Guaira Sharks in the Venezuelan winter league. The lefthander pitched there for a month and rested in January. He went to spring training in February, won a job with the Phillies, and threw fine until his left forearm stiffened Wednesday. Phillies coaches noticed a problem in the fifth inning of a 7-4 loss to Atlanta. Head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan accompanied them to the mound. Hollands was removed.
