Jim Leyritz's Game 4 at-bat proved to be the turning point in the 1996 World Series. He faced Mark Wohlers in the top of the eighth, with two men on and the Yankees trailing 6-3. New York had chipped away at 6-0 deficit earlier in the game, but was down to its final five outs as Leyritz settled into the batter's box. He popped a 2-2 offering from Atlanta closer Mark Wohlers over the left-field fence, silencing the Atlanta crowd and tying the game. The Yankees won in extra innings before edging the Braves for one-run victories in Games 5 and 6 to win their first World Series in 18 years.
