Shutout gives Atlanta first pennant
PITTSBURGH (AP) — First they wrote a sequel to “Gone With the Wind.'* Now the Atlanta Braves have rewritten the history books ■— and the storybooks.
What else can Atlanta take in one year?
Would you believe the World Series?
* 'There isn't one person in this stadium who’d have believed in April that they'd win their division, let alone Game 7 here,’* a disbelieving Andy Van Slyke said following the Braves’ decisive 4-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League playoffs Thursday night.
They'd been shut out of the World Series since 1958, when they played in Milwaukee, but the Braves literally shut the Pirates out of the series. Three of the Braves’ four victories were shutouts as baseball's best regular-season team failed to score in the final 22 innings overall and the last 27 in Pittsburgh.
"You wish for shutouts, but that's awfully hard to do," Braves Manager Bobby Cox said.
"Who would have thought we'd get shut out three times?** Van Slyke said. “We’re not slouches. We underachieved, but they have a great pitching staff."
They were a last-place team the last three seasons.
"People said we were out of it at the All-Star break, but we kept battling. They said we couldn't catch the Dodgers and we kept battling. This is a team that won't give up," NL batting champion Terry Pendleton said.
The Pirates had never lost a decisive Game 7 in the 104-year history of their franchise, but not even the history books could save them from some of the best postseason pitching in history. Pittsburgh was shut out at home wily twice all season, only to be zeroed out in three of their four home playoff games.
Playoff MVP Steve Avery, a two-time 1-0 winner, said the Braves now will zero in on the Minnesota Twins in the first World Series matchup of last-place teams from the previous season.
The Worst Series, en, World Scries begins Saturday night in the Metro-dome with the Twins’ Jack Morris to face probable Braves starter Tom Gla-vine. Scoring is optional.
"I think we showed we can throw the ball a little bit out there," Avery said. "I'm sure the Twins have a great luff, but I don't think that any team in the league can match our staff now."
"I don't know if anybody knows
how it feels to lose consistently," said Game 7 winner John Smoltz, who allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked one in his first shutout of the season. "I know it feels great to win."
For Pittsburgh, it felt a lot worse to lose to Atlanta than it did to 1990 world champion Cincinnati in 1990. The Braves went from worst to first, but it only got worse for the Pirates this lime around.
They managed only seven runs in the final six games as their big three of Barry Bonds. Bobby Bonilla and Van Slyke went 0-for-33 with runners in scoring position from early in Game I until late in Game 7.
The numbers tell all about the Pirates’ second consecutive playoff defeat and their sixth in eight NL playoff appearances: Bonds, .148 with no RBls; Bonds. O-for-16 with runners in scoring position; Bonilla, one RBI; Van Slyke, .160 and no RBIs after the third inning of Game I.
The Braves themselves had a playoff record 26-inning scoreless streak as big boppers Pendleton (.167, I RBI), David Justice (.200, 2 RBIs, I missed base) and Ron Gam (.259) had so-so series. But they still won.
"We just didn’t get the hill," Pittsburgh Manager Jim Ley land said.
The Braves made it tough on 20-game winner John Smiley from the start, knocking him out in a three-run first inning keyed by Brian Hunter’s two-run homer.
