Indians 7, Mariners 0 Knocked For A Loop

Sun., Oct. 15, 1995

The Cleveland Indians have evened the score.

The Indians received home runs from Eddie Murray and Jim Thome and superb pitching from Ken Hill to beat Seattle 7-0 Saturday night, squaring the best-of-seven American League baseball playoffs at two games apiece.

Game 5 is today in Cleveland. The series returns to Seattle on Tuesday for Game 6 and, if necessary, Game 7.

The Indians did it with a makeshift lineup that was also missing a pair of injured stars, heavy-hitting Albert Belle and catcher Sandy Alomar.

Hill, making his first start and second career appearance in the postseason, took advantage of a big early lead and pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits.
