    NLCS(4-1) Atlanta over St. Louis Cardinals

    The American League saw the Indians repeat as Eastern Divisional champs, although the race was a bit closer then last year. In the West, the Rangers would win with a decent margin. Meanwhile, Detroit would be setting history with 109....losses. Ouch.

    For the National League, Atlanta once again took the NL West convincingly, beating the Padres by a few game. The DOdgers, Astros, and Rockies would finish 3rd, 4th, and 5th again. In the East, the Cardinals and Expos would have a tight race all year, needing a 163rd game to finish the season. It would be a pitchers duel with Fassero and Benes dueling for one run each, but the Cardinals would win after Rojas would walk 41 year old Ozzie Smith, advanced to second on a groundout, then scored on a close place at home scoring from second on a Gary Gaetti sacrifice fly.

    The Expos and playoffs man.....just wow.

    ALCS:

    Game One @ Cleveland, Indians over Rangers 16-6:
    Both teams exchange a good amount of runs before the Indians score nine in the sixth to run away with the game. Mark Brandenburg would finish the game with a 108 ERA

    Game Two @ Cleveland, Indians over Rangers 8-1:
    A close four innings are shattered when the Indians once again find their grove in the middle innings. Ken Hill and Kevin Stanton would be lit up while Orel Hershiser would be one out away from a complete game. Stanton would join the three digit era club with a 216 ERA. Manny Ramirez would bring up five runs with a double and home run.

    Game Three @ Texas, Indians over Rangers 5-2: All the runs were scored in the second inning, Jack McDowell and Mesa earn the win/save combo and Mike Witt is chased from the game after three innings. Kevin Seitzer, who was injured in Game One, bagged three of those runs off a home run.

    Game Four @ Texas, Indians over Rangers 10-9:
    The only close game of the series, this was a wild scoring one from first to the ninth inning. Both starters were gone by the fifth inning, and four home runs were hit, including a three run home run by 38 year old Julio Franco in the first inning to start the party that would end with an Indians repeat ticket to the World Series, along with the sweep


    NLCS:

    Game One @ Atlanta, Braves over Cardinals 2-1:
    The Cards find themselves in another pitching duel, but this time, they'd be on the wrong end of it. Ryan Klesko parks a solo shot with two outs in the eighth off of Eckersley to take Game One.

    Game Two @ Atlanta, Braves over Cardinals 2-0:
    The Braves go up two games as Smoltz authors a four hit shutout. Lopez bagged one run with a double in the second, and McGriff singled one home in the third for the only two runs of the game.

    Game Three @ St. Louis, Braves over Cardinals 5-3:
    Marquis Grissiom parks a three run home run, while Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers earn the win and save as the Braves are one win away from the sweep and the World Series

    Game Four @ St. Louis, Cardinals over Braves 3-1:
    Benes and Eckersley earn the win and save respectively, and the Cards scored the winning runs in the second inning as the cards break the sweep.

    Game Five @ St. Louis, Braves over Cardinals 4-2:
    Four Braves hit solo shots, Greg Maddux earns a complete game win, and insult to injury, Ray Lankford was injured in the first inning as the Braves win the series.

    World Series:

    Game One @ Cleveland, Braves over Indians 6-2:
    The Indians scored two runs and the lead in the first inning, before everything flew off the rails. SP Charles Nagy was injured in the first inning. Julio Franco in a collision at the plate, and Cleveland's bats ran into the cold water that is Maddux and Wohlers for the loss.

    Game Two @ Cleveland, Braves over Indians 5-4:
    Smoltz and Hershiser would author a decent duel, but Wohlers blows it in the ninth, giving up a bases loaded double to Jose Vizcaino to tie the game. However, the Braves would earn another run off Mesa for the close win.

    Game Three @ Atlanta, Braves over Indians 7-2:
    Mark Whiten scores three with a home run and the Braves chase McDowell out of the game as the Braves get within one of a sweep and the first repeat winner since the 1992-1993 Toronto Blue Jays

    Game Four @ Atlanta, Braves over Indians 4-2:
    The Braves waste no time getting to Dennis Martinez, scoring eight runs in the first four innings as they cruised to the sweep, the series, and the repeat. Danny Neagle earns the CG win, and Catcher Javy Lopez earns series MVP

    NLCS (4-2) Florida beat Atlanta
    World Series(4-1) Seattle over Florida

    In the AL, the Indians not only aren't the divisional winners, but were never really in the race. Instead the Orioles and Yankees contested for the flag, but the Orioles squeeze ahead at the end. In the AL West, the Mariners return to the division podium, contesting the Angels for the pennant for most of the year. In the NL, Atlanta once again dominates the West, this time having no competition as they steamroll to a 100 win season. In the East, the Marlins take the pennant in their famous first run at the WS. Can they win in this world? Let's find out.

    ALCS:

    Game One @ Baltimore, Mariners over Orioles, 6-5
    The game started out biitersweet for the Mariners. They jump to a 2-1 lead with two solo shots from Alex Rodriguez, but Randy Johnson blew out his knee in the second. Almoar hits a two run shot off Derek Lowe to get the Orioles the lead as Mike Mussina cruised to seven strong innings.

    And then the Orioles made the mistake of going to the bullpen.

    Randy Meyers loaded the bases in the ninth, and Armando Benitez blew the save by giving up a grand slam to Edgar Martinez. The Orioles would pull to within one, but not enough to win the game.

    Game Two @ Baltimore, Orioles over Mariners, 13-8
    Jeff Fassero and Scott Erickson played a see-saw battle for six innings, but the Orioles kick it into high gear in the 7th after an hour rain delay, scoring six in the seventh, and three in the eighth. Heathcliff Slocumb, who barely held onto Game One, threw a tanker of gas on the Orioles bats, giving up six runs. THe Orioles didn't escape without being wounded, as starting CF Brady Anderson was injured with a quad strain.

    Game Three @ Seattle, Orioles over Mariners, 8-7
    The Mariners get to Jimmy Key early and often, scoring seven runs in five innings, as Jamie Moyer authors seven strong innings. But like the Orioles in the first game, the Mariners made the mistake of going with their bullpen. Bobby Ayala gave up three runs to get the game close, and Paul Spoljaric earned the loss and the blown save with Geronimo Berroa hitting a grand slam.

    Game Four @ Seattle, Orioles over Mariners, 10-8
    Baltimore one again came after the Mariner pitchers early and often, with multirun home runs from Rafeal Palmeiro, Geronimo Berroa, and Brady Anderson. Omar Olivares was chased out after four innings, and Derek Lowe wasn't much better. The Mariners would make a strong comeback with a five run ninth but it wasn't enough to win the game.

    Game Five @ Seattle, Mariners over Orioles, 3-0
    Jeff Fassero, Heathcliff Slocumb, and Paul Spoljaric redeem themselved with a combined six hit shutout, and Russ Davis scores two off a double against Mike Mussina to stave off elimination.

    Game Six @ Baltimore, Mariners over Orioles, 8-7
    The series came back to Baltimore, and the injury bug came with them. Jay Buhner, Brady Anderson, Jesse Orosco, and BJ Surhoff all went down the injury, with Orosco gone for two weeks. Scott Erickson and Jamie Moyer were chased early out of the game, and Heathcliff Slocumb would allow at least two runs for the third time in four games, but Seattle would prevail to tie the series.

    Game Seven @ Baltimore, Mariners over Orioles, 3-2
    For the first time, there would be a one run game with a low run total, with Jimmy Key and Omar Olivares starting. Omar would be pulled after the fourth inning, but Bobby Ayala and Mike Timlin would not allow another hit, while Jose Cruz would hit a three run home run to win both the game, series, and came back from being one game away from elimination.

    NLCS:

    In real life, Florida beat Atlanta 4-2 so no changes here.

    World Series:

    Game One @ Florida, Marlins over Mariners, 4-3
    The first game was one inning for FLorida, but it was enough for the win. Kevin Brown pitched seven strong innings and Charles Johnson hit a three run shot off David Lowe to take Game One. Randy Johnson, Seattle's twenty game winner, pitched almost three innings of one hit ball, and then blew out his elbow (seriously, this guy is made of glass according to OOTP), and David Lowe....was a poor choice.

    Game Two @ Florida, Mariners over Marlins , 10-3
    The first seven innings were pretty tight. Alex Fernandez lasted for five innings before getting injured, while Jeff Fassero lasts for six and change. However in the eighth, with almost a hundred minute rain delay, the wheels fell off. Florida uses four relievers in the eighth inning, the first three only recording one out, as Seattle scored eight runs. Dan Wilson got a grand slam, and Joey Cora added two more with his own shot as the Mariners cruised to a win and tying the series.

    Game Three @ Seattle, Mariners over Marlins , 4-3
    Kyle Abbott makes three errors as the Marlins blow a two run lead, and Robb Nen lets the winning run in as the Mariners take the lead in the series. Jose Cruz Junior hurts his knee and is out for the series, but fortunately he wasn't performing well at the plate. Another game has a rain delay (shocking being in the two more rainy places on the continent).

    Game Four @ Seattle, Mariners over Marlins , 3-1
    Livan Hernandez gives up the lead with a Dan WIlson two-run home run and Omar Olivares, Paul Spoljaric, and Heathcliff Slocumb pitches a strong combined effort, as the Mariners get to within one of their first World Series.

    Game Five @ Seattle, Mariners over Marlins, 4-2
    This time, the Mariners get the lead early , scoring three runs on two outs in the third inning off of Kevin Brown. Jeff Fassero earned the win, David Lowe the hold, and Mike Timlin the save. Edgar Martinez, Ken Griffey Jr., and Jay Buhner would score three to give the Mariners their first WOrld Series title.
