In the ALCS, Mike Mussina pitches two-hit baseball for eight innings, but the Baltimore Orioles can’t score. Starter Charles Nagy and three relievers of the Cleveland Indians strand 14 Baltimore baserunners. Tony Fernandez hits a home run in the 11th inning off Armando Benitez for the only run of the game as the Indians win the American League pennant for the second time in three years. Brian Anderson is the winning pitcher in relief and Jose Mesa earns the save. Marquis Grissom is named ALCS MVP.
