This Day In Sports History (October 28th) – Atlanta Braves
It was on this day in 1995 that the Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians played Game Six of the World Series. The Braves won the game 1-0 to capture their third World Series title and first since 1957.
This was a very close series, as five out of the six games were decided by one run. Tom Glavine was selected to start game six and he did not disappoint, as he pitched eight incredible innings of one-hit, shutout baseball. The Braves entered the ninth inning with a slim 1-0 lead and turned to closer Mark Wohlers to close out the game. He would go on to shut the door on the Indians to give the Braves the title. Tom Glavine was named as World Series M.V.P., as he also got the win in Game Two. Although the Braves made 14 straight postseason appearances from 1991-2005, this was the only year that they won it all.
