1997 World Series

Chad Ogea, having lost two games in the ALCS and winning no games in June, July, or August, managed to win two World Series games, both of them against Marlins ace Kevin Brown. In that Series, he gave up just two earned runs for an ERA of 1.54. But what was the most amazing was his hitting in that Series. In Game 6, Chad managed to get his first hit since high school off Brown, knocking in two runs in the process. Then he once again helped on offense on a first pitch double to lead off the 5th. He would score on Manny Ramírez's sacrifice fly.
