After decades of futility, the city of Cleveland finally had a winner in town. The Indians batted over .300 as a team during a shortened regular season in which they won 100 games and won their division by a whopping 30 games. They swept the Boston Red Sox in the opening round, then held off Ken Griffey Jr. and the red hot Seattle Mariners in the ALCS. Their offense was, and still is, considered one of the best "on paper" lineups of all time. Led by speedsters Kenny Lofton and Omar Vizquel at the top of the lineup, the Indians offense was driven by the middle of the order power of Albert Belle, Manny Ramirez, Eddie Murray and Jim Thome. Off the bench the Indians were fortunate enough to have future hall of famer Dave Winfield in his last professional season, as well as future stars Jeromy Burnitz and Brian Giles. Cleveland's pitching staff, which was made up of aging veterans such as Orel Hershiser and Dennis Martinez, was seen as their only weak point.

The Indians scored in the first inning when Kenny Lofton reached on an error, stole second and third, and scored on an RBI groundout by Carlos Baerga. In the bottom of the second, Fred McGriff launched a tape measure home run on his first ever World Series pitch off Cleveland starter Orel Hershiser to even the score at 1-1. Both starters settled down until the seventh, when Hershiser and the Cleveland bullpen walked the first three Braves to open the inning. The Braves would take a 3-1 lead after Luis Polonia hit into a run-scoring force play and Rafael Belliard bunted a perfect suicide squeeze. The Indians scored a run in the ninth to cut the Braves lead to a single run, but Baerga lifted a pop fly that third baseman Chipper Jones grabbed near the visiting dugout to end the game.

Atlanta No. 2 starter Tom Glavine got the win in Game 2, aided by a big sixth-inning home run by catcher Javy Lopez. The Indians had taken an early 2-0 lead on an Eddie Murray home run, but the Braves evened the score in the third. Lopez launched his home run in the sixth inning from Cleveland starter Dennis Martinez. The Atlanta bullpen held off the Indians in the later innings, with Mark Wohlers earning the save.

With the World Series moving to raucous Jacobs Field in Cleveland, the Indians got their first win. The Indians offense knocked Atlanta starter John Smoltz out of the game by the third inning and took a 4-1 lead. Home runs by Fred McGriff and Ryan Klesko brought the Braves closer. After Cleveland added a run in the seventh, Atlanta scored three runs in the eighth, capped by a Mike Devereaux RBI single to take a 6-5 lead.

Braves manager Bobby Cox controversially decided to start beleaguered left-hander Steve Avery in the critical Game 4 instead of coming back with Greg Maddux. Young Braves outfielder Ryan Klesko hit a sixth-inning home run to give Atlanta the lead. Avery was able to deliver six effective innings, only giving up a sixth-inning solo home run to Cleveland slugger Albert Belle. The Braves promptly broke the tie with a three-run seventh, with David Justice plating two of the runs with a single. An RBI double by Javy Lopez gave the Braves an insurance run, making it 5-1.

It seemed the perfect situation for Atlanta with Greg Maddux pitching Game 5 with a chance to clinch the title, but Albert Belle slugged a two-run homer in the first inning, and the Braves lineup was held in check by Cleveland veteran Orel Hershiser who went eight innings, only surrendering two runs. Atlanta actually tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring infield single by Marquis Grissom in the fifth, but Cleveland got two more runs from Maddux making it 4-2. Jim Thome hit an insurance home run in the eighth, which proved necessary as Ryan Klesko homered in his third consecutive game from closer Jose Mesa closing the gap to 5-4. The win gave Cleveland the hope of perhaps another Braves World Series collapse and sent the Series back to Atlanta.

Controversy struck on the morning of Game 6 when Atlanta newspapers printed stories that right fielder David Justice had ripped the city's fans for not matching their motivation of past seasons. Justice, who had been struggling in the postseason, was vilified before the game, but when his sixth inning home run broke a 0-0 tie, he became a hero. Tom Glavine pitched eight innings of one-hit ball (just the 5th 1-hitter in Series history) to help earn him the Series MVP. The lone hit was by catcher Tony Pena in the sixth. Closer Mark Wohlers pitched the ninth inning, preserving the 1-0 shutout and Atlanta's coveted title when Carlos Baerga's fly ball landed in center fielder Marquis Grissom's glove.
