Braves Extend Shutout Run To 23 Innings; Yankees Roll

ATLANTA -- Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers combined on a three-hitter, and Chipper Jones provided the lone run with a solo homer, as the Atlanta Braves recorded their second straight shutout and swept a three-game series from the San Francisco Giants with a 1-0 victory.


It was the sixth straight win overall and fifth shutout of the season for Atlanta.


The Braves have not allowed a run in their last 23 innings.


"I'm a streaky hitter. My home runs come in bunches," Jones said after Sunday's game. "Pitchers are pitching me away, and I'm taking it to left field."


Yankees 6, Indians 5. Wade Boggs keyed a three-run seventh inning with a two-run triple, and Paul O'Neill homered and drove in two runs, as the New York Yankees completed their first four-game sweep at Cleveland in nearly 32 years with a 6-5 victory over the Indians.


Cleveland's four-game losing streak matches its longest this season.


In the eighth inning, Gerald Williams snagged a long fly to left field by Kenny Lofton, who was credited with a sacrifice fly that brought Cleveland within 6-5.


"That was the ballgame," said New York coach Don Zimmer, who guided the club in manager Joe Torre's absence. "If he doesn't catch it, they tie the score, and there's a man on second or third with nobody out."


Torre left the game around the third inning to be with his family as they mourned the death of his brother, Rocco.
