Indians’ Grissom Extends Streak

October 22, 1997

CLEVELAND (AP) _ Marquis Grissom of the Cleveland Indians extended his World Series hitting streak to 15 games Tuesday night with an infield single in the eighth inning of Game 3 against the Florida Marlins.

Grissom, who entered the game with the highest batting average in series history for players with at least 50 at-bats (.441), beat out a chopper that shortstop Edgar Renteria backhanded nicely. He threw to first, but Grissom beat the throw.

Grissom, who had been tied on the hitting streak list with Pittsburgh’s Roberto Clemente, has hit in all 15 World Series games he’s played. Only Hank Bauer of the New York Yankees has a longer streak, 17 games from 1956-58.

Grissom hit safely in all six games for the Atlanta Braves in 1995 and ’96 and in the first three games of this series.
