World Series Game 4 Recap

Game 4 of the World Series went to the Atlanta Brave Vawts 2-1. This series featured another great pitching performance and another close game but the Vawts pulled this one of. Andruw Dunston did a great job of getting through the Stars offensive only allowing 5 hits through out his 8 innings with the only run he allowed was a solo homerun by Mike Sewell in the eighth inning. He also struckout 6 batters against 2 walks. Chris Unroe made the ninth inning intersting with allowing two hits before getting Sewell to ground out to third. Also in the ninth inning was probably the play of the game as third basemen Frank Surtain robbing Clem Barkley with an outstanding diving catch on a hard hit ball down the third base line which probably the Stars might have scored on a sure extra base hit. The scoring started for the Vawts in the third inning as Wade May hit a one out triple then the next batter Nick Collins hit another triple. The third inning almost broke the game wide open as the Vawts had the bases loaded with one out but Mac Johnson grounded into a double play to end the inning. In the sixth inning Luis Carreras the number nine hitter hit a big two out single to score Surtain who led of the inning with a single. This proved to be the game winner and sending this series to a 2-2 tie with the Vawts hosting one more game out home until heading back to Monterrey for game 6.
