It's baseball's oldest story: Veteran player gets hurt, rookie steps in and amazes everyone. Sunday's version came in the person of 22-year-old Livan Hernandez, starting only because neither Alex Fernandez nor Kevin Brown was able to. Hernandez responded with one of the great pitching performances of the postseason, striking out 15 Braves as the Marlins won 2-1. Meanwhile, it's time to bring out those "Only eight teams have ever come back from a 3-1 deficit" clichés: After last night's wild 8-7 win over Baltimore, Cleveland is one game away from the World Series.
