1993 is in the books. The articles will come much quicker once I get 2002 finished but I had to set the stage for my next story. Atlanta Braves and California Angels in the 1993 series.
It is the game 7 pitching match that I found intriguing. Greg Maddux (remember him Cub fans...you dealt him to the halos for Bill Buckner) against Tom Glavine. They split their first two starts with Glavine earning the POG award in game 1 - score was 2-1 Atlanta. Maddux got the POG in game 4 with an 8 inning. 3 hit effort that kept the Angels alive.
Atlanta had won the first 3 games before Maddux got California into the victory column with that 4-3 win in Game 4. The Angels took game 5 by a 7-4 count and then evened the series at home with a 3-2 win in the 6th game. Dante Bichette's rbi single with 2 out in the bottom of the 8th broke a 2-2 tie.
So we are at one final game. Glavine vs Maddux. Can the Braves avert another choke? The franchise has been to 8 World Series and has yet to win one.
We will find out late tonight. This is one game I have to watch.
