Baseball Playoffs | CLEVELAND VS. NEW YORK REPORT

Notes

October 14, 1998|Associated Press

The Indians were hurt by three errors, most notably a throwing error from Gold Glove shortstop Omar Vizquel in the sixth inning that allowed the Yankees to score three runs and open a four-run lead.

Vizquel, who hadn't made an error in 46 consecutive postseason games, threw away Brosius' routine grounder. Vizquel said the ball was wet, but didn't use that as an excuse.

"Yeah, the ball was wet," he said. "But it was wet all game long and for the Yankees too."

Vizquel tied had gone 17 consecutive AL championship series games without an error, tying the record set by Baltimore's Mark Belanger, who died last week.
