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.

Cleveland’s lone hit came in the sixth on a bloop single by catcher Tony Pena. 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. Five of the six games between the two clubs were decided by one run.
