Encyclopedia > 1992 National League Championship Series

The 1992 National League Championship Series was played between the Atlanta Braves (98-64) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (95-66) from October 6 to October 14. Atlanta won the series in seven games to advance to their second straight World Series. The 1992 NLCS ended in dramatic fashion, as in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7, with Atlanta down 2-1 and the bases loaded, the Braves' Francisco Cabrera cracked a two-run single that scored David Justice and Sid Bream. Bream famously slid to score the Series-winning run, beating the throw by Pirates left fielder Barry Bonds. // This year in baseball Events January 7 - Pitchers Tom Seaver and Rollie Fingers are elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America. ...

A rather uneventful opening to what would prove to be a memorable series, Game 1 was an easy win for the Braves. Atlanta scored four early runs, highlighted by Jeff Blauser's fifth-inning homer, and coasted to victory. The only bright spot for Pittsburgh was a relatively meaningless late-inning homer by usually light-hitting Jose Lind, who would gain notoriety in the final game of the series. Lind's run, however, was the first the Pirates had scored against the Braves in 25 innings, going back to Lind's RBI single in game five of the 1991 NLCS.

Atlanta scored early and often to win a blowout in Game 2. The Braves combined four hits, a walk and a sacrifice fly in the second inning to score four runs and knock out Pirates starter Danny Jackson. Another four-run outburst in the fifth, featuring Ron Gant's first career grand slam homer, put the Braves up 8-0. The Pirates' offense finally got going in the seventh against tiring Atlanta starter Steve Avery, as Pittsburgh used five hits to score four and briefly make it a game. But Atlanta responded with five in the bottom of the inning, sparked by a two-run double by Terry Pendleton and a two-run single by David Justice, to put the game away. Avery ran his record playoff scoreless innings streak to 22 1/3 innings, all against the Pirates, before he gave up four runs in the seventh.

The series moved to Pittsburgh and produced its best game so far. Atlanta's Sid Bream, who would be a central figure in the series' deciding play, opened the scoring with a homer in the fourth. Pittsburgh's Don Slaught evened the score with a round-tripper in the fifth. Doubles by Andy Van Slyke and Jeff King put the Pirates up 2-1 in the sixth, but Atlanta tied the game on a solo shot by Ron Gant in the seventh. Pittsburgh scored the deciding run in the bottom of the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Van Slyke. Tim Wakefield pitched a complete game, and the Pirates had their first win of the series.

Game 4 was a back-and-forth affair eventually won by the Braves behind the pitching, hitting and baserunning of series MVP John Smoltz. Both teams scored twice in the second, with Smoltz driving in one of the Braves's runs. Pittsburgh took a 3-2 lead in the third on a run-scoring double by Orlando Merced. But the Braves bounced back with four runs in the fifth and sixth to take a 6-3 advantage, with Smoltz scoring one of the runs after getting his second hit of the game and stealing a base. After the Pirates closed to within 6-4 in the seventh on an RBI double by Andy Van Slyke, Smoltz was lifted for reliever Mike Stanton, who quickly squelched the Pittsburgh rally. Jeff Reardon pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the save, and Atlanta was one game away from taking the NLCS. Doug Drabek took his second loss of the series.

The Pirates staved off elimination in the fifth game with their best offensive showing so far in the series and a strong complete-game performance from Bob Walk. Pittsburgh hit four doubles in the first to score four and chase Atlanta starter Steve Avery. The rest of the game was anticlimactic as the Braves couldn't get anything going against Walk, who pitched a crafty three-hitter. Pittsburgh added single runs in the third, sixth and seventh, but Walk didn't need them.

The series returned to Atlanta, and Pittsburgh returned the favor of Atlanta's Game 2 blowout with a 13-4 laugher of their own. The game was over after the second inning, when the Pirates sent twelve men to the plate and scored eight. Barry Bonds led off the inning with a homer, and things went rapidly downhill for Atlanta starter Tom Glavine, who took his second loss of the series. Jay Bell also homered in the inning, a three-run shot that finally ended Glavine's futile stint on the mound. Pittsburgh starter Tim Wakefield pitched well with the lead and never let the Braves back in the game, for his second complete-game victory of the now 3-3 series.

The series decider was its most memorable contest. Doug Drabek pitched masterfully for the first eight innings, holding the Braves scoreless. His only real scare came in the sixth, when the Braves loaded the bases with none out. But Jeff Blauser lined into a double-play and Terry Pendleton struck out to end the inning. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh wasn't doing much with Atlanta starter John Smoltz, but they did manage single tallies in the first on an Orlando Merced sacrifice fly and in the sixth on an RBI single by Andy Van Slyke.

The Pirates took the 2-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth, when their season imploded. Drabek allowed an inning-opening double to Pendleton. In what would prove to be a crucial play, normally sure-handed second baseman Jose Lind then booted David Justice's easy grounder. A walk to Sid Bream loaded the bases, and Belinda replaced Drabek. Ron Gant then plated one run with a sacrifice fly to make it 2-1, and Berryhill walked to reload the bases. Pinch-hitter Brian Hunter popped up to shortstop with nobody scoring, and it looked like Pittsburgh might escape. But pinch-hitter Francisco Cabrera singled to left to score Justice and—just ahead of Barry Bonds' throw—Bream. The Braves piled onto Bream at the plate, the stadium erupted, and Atlanta went back to the World Series.
