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.
