This day in baseball: Braves victorious

In Game 6 of the 1995 World Series, Atlanta Braves pitchers Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers combined efforts to throw a one-hit shutout against the Cleveland Indians.  The only run of the game came from David Justice’s lead-off home run in the sixth inning against Jim Poole.  The 1-0 victory gave the Braves their first World Series championship since moving to Atlanta and, notably, the only World Series Championship of the 1990s Braves dynasty.
