Fryman brings home run for Cleveland win
CLEVELAND (AP) - On a
gimpy knee that almost prevented
him from playing in October, Travis
Fryman finally helped the Indians'
run away from their Game 1 postsea-
Fryman's RBI single with one-out
in the bottom of the ninth inning
gave Cleveland a 3-2 win over the
Boston Red Sox, who may have lost
Pedro Martinez for the remainder of
the AL playoffs.
The Indians had lost eight
straight series opening games, dating
back to the division series against
Boston in 1995 before Fryman's
clutch bases-loaded base hit.
Martinez, baseball's most domi-
nant pitcher this season, pulled a
back muscle in the fourth inning and
had to leave the game. He is listed as
day-to-day and Boston manager Jimy
Williams said the right-hander would
be re-examined by doctors on
"We got a break with Pedro get-
ting hurt," said Fryman, who spent
most of the season on the disabled
list with a serious knee injury.
"Anytime you face Pedro, he's
tough. He's the best pitcher I ever
faced. You look up there in the sixth
inning and you don't see him out
there, it gives you a little pick-me-
The Red Sox, who had counted
on Martinez giving them the lead in
the series, will turn to Bret
Saberhagen in Game 2 Thursday
against Cleveland's Charles Nagy.
Indians starter Bartolo Colon
struck out a season-high 1 l in eight
innings, and Paul Shuey picked up
the win with a perfect ninth.

ATLANTA (AP) -The Braves must
be wondering why they didn't use
Kevin Millwood in the last two postsea-
Showing that he's now the best
starter on a staff filled with Cy Young
winners, Millwood threw the first post-
season one-hitter by one pitcher in 32
years to give the Braves a critical 5-I
victory over the Houston Astros yester-
day evening their first-round series at
one game apiece.
"I was a little nervous before the
game," Millwood said. "But once I was
on the mound, it was just like any other

the 1967 World Series, when Boston's
Jim Lonborg beat the St. Louis
Cardinals 5-0, allowing a double to
Julian Javier with two outs in the
eighth. Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers
combined on a one-hitter for the Braves
against Cleveland in Game 6 of the
1995 World Series.
"You don't throw a one-hitter every
day," Millwood said. "It was a lot of
fun. Everything was working. My fast,
ball was good. My curveball was good'
My slider was good."

Jordan and Klesko flip-flopped in the

two RBIs from Jordan, hitting fourth
instead of fifth.
