Roger Clemens pitches the New York Yankees to their second straight World Series sweep, shutting down the Atlanta Braves, 4 - 1 and ending his quest for the one and only prize that eluded him: a world championship. Clemens gave up 4 hits over 8 innings. Jim Leyritz hits a solo HR in the 8th inning to finish the New York scoring.

The Yankees win their record 25th championship - and third in four years. Game Four marks New York's 12th Series victory a row, matching a team mark. Mariano Rivera gets his second save and is named Series MVP. Atlanta joins the New York Giants (1910-1919) as the only teams to lose four World Series in a decade. Full Series Recap
