MODERN DAY MARVELS

By Alan Schwarz, ESPN.Com

Anyone who watched Tuesday night's gutsy masterpiece by Curt Schilling knows it will go down as one of the most clutch pitching performances we'll ever see.

In a separate story, we unveiled the Top 10 clutch pitching performances of the pre-1969 era. In this, we look at the Top 15 performances since 1969.

4. Tom Glavine, 1995
Already building their close-but-not-quite reputation after World Series losses in 1991 and 1992, the Braves had everyone wondering if they'd squander their 3-games-to-2 lead over Cleveland in 1995. But Glavine wouldn't let that happen. He no-hit the powerful Indians into the sixth before allowing a bloop single, and finished with eight one-hit innings as Atlanta held on to win, 1-0, for the championship. To this day it's the Braves' only title of their modern dynasty.
