NEW YORK (AP) Just when everything
seemed to be going Atlanta's way in Game 3,
the Yankees still found a way to win.
Chad Curtis homered in the fifth to begin
their comeback from a 5-1 deficit, and homers
by Tino Martinez and Chuck Knoblauch off
Tom Glavine tied it.
Then in the 10th, Curtis sent a 1-1 pitch
from Mike Remlinger far over the left-field
fence for the Yankees' llth straight World
Series victory. It was the first game-ending
homer in the Series since Joe Carter's Game 6
shot won it all for Toronto in 1993.
Roger Clemens, who joined the Yankees this
spring in hopes of winning his first World
Series ring, gets a chance to close it out in
Game 4 Wednesday night against John Smoltz.
Mariano Rivera, Mr. Automatic in October,
pitched two innings for the victory. He has not
allowed a run in his last 41 2-3 innings, and has
a postseason streak of 24 1-3 scoreless innings.
While the Braves lost their seventh straight
Series game, the Yankees moved within one
victory of tying the longest winning streak
ever. The record was set by their Murderers'
Row teams of 1927, 1928 and 1932.
Up until the Yankees turned from singles hit-
ters into the Bronx Bombers, the Braves were
Glavine, scratched from his Game 1 start

innings against Andy Pettittc and and every
Braves batter had a hit by the fifth, By then. it
was 5-1 and the sellout crowd of 56,794 was
booing the home team.
Boone could been seen huddling in the
dugout with batting coach Don Baylor, check-
ing out what appeared to be hitting charts.
During Monday's workout, Baylor held an
extended session of batting practice and
stressed patience at the plate and emphasized
hitting to the opposite ficld.
It all worked in the early going.
Then, though, the Yankees flexed their mus-

career a memorable one, hitting the I I th ame-

w? I hold its men's basketball team out of
postseason play for one year because of
alleged academic cheating, school presi-
dent Mark Yudof said yesterday.
The university also is placing the pro-
gram on probation for an unspecified
length of time, Yudof said. That will
mean higher levels of reporting to the
NCAA such as periodic self-studies and
compliance checks, he said.
An investigation into the men's bas-
*ball program began in March after
former tutor Jan Gangelhoff claimed she
did more than 400 pieces of course work
for at least 20 basketball players from
1993 to 1998.
The investigation has since widened
to include accusations of improper pay-
ments and travel irregularities, and
alleged sexual and other misconduct in
the men's athletics department.

Yudof said the university and the
NCAA may impose more sanctions after
the final university report is completed,
probably by Nov. 10. The report is
expected to be made public on Nov 20.
Yudof said he realized some current
basketball team members may feel the
sanctions are unfair, but said, "We must
demonstrate good faith and take mean-
ingful action to repair the damage that
has been done by others."
In response to a question about the
difficulty of self-imposing sanctions,
Yudof called it "the right thing to do."
"The NCAA has to worry about
deterrents. I have to worry about deter-
rents in the future."
The postseason ban includes the
NCAA and NIT but not the Big Ten
tournament, Yudof said.
Gangelhoff, the woman who sparked
the investigation, left her job at a casino
in Danbury, Wis., to listen to the univer-
sity's news conference on her car radio.
"I think it's just the beginning,"
Gangelhoff said. "President Yudof must
have enough information to realize these
two things (sanctions) were going to
happen regardless of whether or not he
has the complete report in hand."
NCAA spokeswoman Jane Jankowski
said the organization would not com-
ment on the sanctions. But she said it is
appropriate and common for schools to
come up with their own punishments.
"Universities do frequently hand
down their own penalties, and our
(investigating) committee considers that
and can adopt those sanctions, as well as
add other penalties," she said.
Yudof said the NCAA is supposed to
have an infraction hearing next spring
and could issue sanctions then or wait
until the fall.
