NEW YORK (AP) — The way Greg Maddux was pitching, one run would have been plenty.
The Atlanta Braves didn’t need to go on another rampage, relying instead on Maddux’s eight shutout innings to beat the New York Yankees 4-0 Monday night for a 2-0 lead in the World Series.
Fred McGriff drove in three runs as the Braves won their fifth straight game in the postseason, a span in which they’ve outscored opponents 48-2. On this night, though, Maddux put the focus right back on Atlanta’s awesome starters.
The win moved the defending champions halfway toward another title, and sent the Series to Atlanta for the next three games — if all three are necessary.
Because of an earlier rainout, there will be no travel day. Instead, Game 3 will be Tuesday night, with 1995 World Series MVP Tom Glavine starting for the Braves against David Cone.
Maddux made it look easy, allowing six hits, permitting only two runners past first base and walking none. The lone time the Yankees put two runners on base in an inning, the four-time Cy Young winner induced Wade Boggs to bounce into a double play and got Bernie Williams to ground out to end the sixth.
Mark Wohlers struck out the side in the ninth for the Braves, allowing a two-out single to Cecil Fielder.
With nothing to cheer for, frustrated Yankees fans took to running on the field in the later innings. In fact, five of them touched second base, more people than the Yankees’ offense put there. The game ended with a small section of Braves family members and friends chanting and chopping behind home plate.
It was the kind of neat, efficient performance that prompted the Yankees to court Maddux when he became a free agent after the 1992 season.
Maddux took a tour of New York, seeing Yankee Stadium and taking in the show “Miss Saigon” on Broadway, and got a $34 million, five-year offer. Shortly thereafter, he accepted $28 million from the Braves for the same five years, saying he thought they had a better chance to win the World Series.
The most action Maddux had on the mound came while showing off his seventh straight Gold Glove. He fielded five grounders, and also twice covered first base for putouts.
Maddux struck out two in improving to 7-4 lifetime in the postseason, including a 3-1 mark this year. He also inflicted a bit of damage on the Yankees, hitting Derek Jeter on the left wrist with a pitch — the mishap caused a bruise that forced Jeter to wear an icepark between innings.
The shutout lowered the Braves’ staff ERA to 1.43 in 12 games this postseason. It also made Atlanta just the 12th team in 92 World Series to win the first two games on the road.
Maddux and the Braves also sent the Yankees to their sixth straight loss in the Series. New York lost its last four in 1981 to Los Angeles, and fell 12-1 in the opener against Atlanta.
The Yankees will be at a deficit in Atlanta, too, when they lose the designated hitter.
Yankees starter Jimmy Key, who beat Atlanta twice while with Toronto in the 1992 Series, never settled into a rhythm. He did not retire three straight batters until the fifth.
McGriff hit RBI singles in the first and third innings and had a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Added to his two RBIs on Sunday night, he set a record with 15 RBIs in a postseason. McGriff broke the mark of 14 set by Reggie Jackson in 1978, although he had only the AL playoffs and the World Series to do it for the Yankees.
Mark Lemke doubled with one out in the first and McGriff singled with two outs. A leadoff double by Marquis Grissom in the third set up another single by McGriff for a 2-0 lead.
Lemke singled for his fourth hit of the Series in the fifth, Chipper Jones doubled and McGriff had a sacrifice fly. Atlanta made it 4-0 in the sixth on a double that popped out of Jeter’s injured glove hand — ending Terry Pendleton’s 0-for-24 slump — and a single by Grissom.
Andruw Jones, who homered twice and drove in five runs in the opener, was 0-for-3 and hit by a pitch. The 19-year-old rookie made one nice play, safely diving around first baseman Tino Martinez after apparently being picked off by catcher Joe Girardi in the second.
Another sign of how things are going the Braves’ way — both Glavine and Cone tried to travel to Atlanta on Monday so they’d be rested for Game 3, but only Glavine made it. Cone’s plane was stuck on the runway because of a computer problem, so he returned to Yankee Stadium.
Darryl Strawberry, still bothered by a broken right toe, did not start for New York. Tim Raines took his place in left field. Strawberry has three homers in 37 career at-bats against Maddux.
Pendleton finished the regular season in an 0-for-15 slump, and was hitless in nine postseason at-bats before his gift double.

The top-ranked sides have gathered enough points to make the rights to struggle for the inaugural ICC World Test Championship trophy, with the finale in the Rose Bowl beginning June 18. (More Cricket News)The finalists have termed their respective 15-member squads for the five-day showdown, which is predicted to be an edge of the seat thriller. Both sides have some of the best operators in the game, let alone the arrangement. Thus, it’s only fitting to provide a lowdown on some probable match-ups. Here are top-five clashes that will settle the problem:
World Test Championship Final, India Vs New Zealand: Players To Watch Out ForHere’s a look at the top players from both India and New Zealand before the World Test Championship (WTC) closing at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, beginning from June 18. © AFPHighlightsIndia take on New Zealand at the WTC final start on FridayBoth teams have several quality players that can make the differenceWe Have a Look at the top players from both sides
Rishabh Pant: The volatile Indian wicketkeeper-batsman has been among the most highly-rated participant in world cricket for the past of couple of years. Pant’s unorthodox batsmanship and his temperament of taking the game to the opposition, irrespective of the circumstance, can surely be the X-factor that India need against a strong New Zealand attack.The youthful wicketkeeper-batsman declared himself in Test cricket by beating Adil Rashid for a six over long-on in his debut match.
Man United vs Everton match report check now | Premier league MUN
Man United vs Everton
Manchester United twice gave up the lead as Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted deep in second-half stoppage time to earn Everton a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Everton looked the more dangerous side in the opening minutes, but it was Manchester United that scored first when Edinson Cavani connected with a lovely Marcus Rashford cross at the back post to head home for the lead on 24 minutes.
Premier League Results and Points Table: The match Manchester United vs Everton ended in a 3-3 draw. Everton scored in the 90+5′ minute to equalize.
Manchester United had hoped to go to the top of the table and believed that they would right up until the injury time of the match.
Manchester United gain a 2-goals lead
The first goal came in the 24th minute for the Red Devils. Edinson Cavani scored as Rashford drifted out to the right-hand side. He had enough time to get his head up and spot his man.
Cavani was alert to the chance and headed it past Olsen to gain the lead for the hosts.
The second goal came right before the half-time whistle. Bruno Fernandes puts Ole’s men two goals ahead. He dummied a pass to Aaron Wan-Bissaka and then received possession to curl a right-footed effort over Olsen into the top-left corner.
On the other hand, Everton are going through a rough patch as they have won only two games out of their last five. They are currently at the 7th spot in Premier League. Ole talked about Pogba’s future: “We’ve got a good open dialogue with Paul, so what we talk about and how we see that situation remains between us of course. I’m just happy he’s focused, he’s playing really well and he’s happy in himself and that’s important. You can see Paul now enjoying playing football with a red shirt on.”
Manchester United vs Everton: Confirmed line-ups
Man United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Cavani
Subs: Henderson, Telles, Williams, Matic, Van De Beek, Martial, Fred, James, Tuanzebe
Everton: Olsen, Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne, Doucoure, Gomes, Davies, Richarlison, James, Calvert-Lewin
Subs: Virginia, Nkounkou, Coleman, Delph, Bernard, Iwobi, Mina, Sigurdsson, King
The 26-year-old has been at United for just over a year but he’s already scored 21 league goals. What makes that number even more insane is that he’s also recorded 19 assists in that time-frame.
Fernandes is now in solo second in the race for the Golden Boot, just two goals behind Mohamed Salah.
One man who was impressed with Fernandes’ goal was former United hero, Robin Van Persie.
He wrote on Twitter: “Bruno Fernandes ladies & gentleman. What a joy to watch him play! Just wondering… how many goals for RvP with him in midfield.”
We will never know the answer to that question but it’s a lot.
United were 2-0 up at half-time after goals from Edison Cavani and Bruno Fernandes but the scores were level less than 10 minutes after the interval after Abdoulaye Doucoure capitalised on some sloppy goalkeeping from David de Gea before James Rodriguez rifled in an equaliser.
United restored their advantage when Scott McTominay’s looping header from Luke Shaw’s free-kick crept in at the far post, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin stabbed home deep into injury-time to deny United a huge win. Old Gunnar Solskjaer will be pleased with the way his side attacked but De Gea’s latest mistake might have posed a new dilemma and there is concern over Paul Pogba’s fitness after he limped off with a muscular problem in the first half.
