1948 Facing only thirty batters, Indians' rookie hurler Gene Bearden five-hits the Braves for a 2-0 victory in front of 70,000 fans in Cleveland. The Tribe takes a 2-1 World Series game lead.
2007 With a 6-4 victory at Yankee Stadium, the Indians advance to the ALCS for the first time since 1995. The Tribe's win ends the Bronx Bombers' season and begins speculation of the impending firing of New York skipper Joe Torre, who was chastised in the press yesterday by owner George Steinbrenner for the team's first-round woes.
