The Atlanta Braves allow just one hit and defeat the Cleveland Indians by a 1-0 final to win Game 6 and clinch the World Series title.

Indians starter Dennis Martinez gave it his all on the mound, lasting four and two-thirds scoreless innings. He allowed four hits and walked five in that short 82-pitch span, but somehow escaped harm’s way.

Cleveland’s lone hit came in the sixth on a bloop single by catcher Tony Pena. The club would have just six different base runners – Pena, Albert Belle on a pair of walks, Manny Ramirez on a fielder’s choice that erased Belle once, Eddie Murray with a walk, and Kenny Lofton on a fielder’s choice that retired Pena. Lofton was the only man to reach second base for the Tribe, picking off second in the sixth.

Atlanta was held scoreless until the bottom of that inning, when lefty David Justice took left-handed reliever Jim Poole deep to right for the game’s only run.

With eight one-hit innings and eight strikeouts, Tom Glavine was the game’s winning pitcher and the series MVP. He won two games in the series and allowed a combined four hits over 14 innings in the series. Mark Wohlers earned his fifth save of the postseason with a perfect ninth inning, getting three balls in the air to end it.

Five of the six games between the two clubs were decided by one run.
