ATLANTA - The New York Yankees suddenly broke loose for four runs in the eighth inning
against Greg Maddux and John Rocker and, behind Orlando Hernandez, beat the Atlanta
Braves 4-1 Saturday night in Game 1 of the World Series.

On a chilly October night when it looked
like one mistake might make the difference - Chipper Jones homered on a bad fastball by Hernandez - before the Yanks struck late. Jones' homer was lone hit for the Braves against ''El Duque,'' and three relievers allowed one other. Shut down on three measly singles against Greg Maddux for
seven innings, the Yankees took advantage of defensive replacement Brian Hunter's two errors at first base to rally for their ninth straight World Series victory. Derek Jeter singled home the tying run to finish Maddux,
sore-ribbed Paul O'Neill followed with a two-run single off Rocker and then Rocker walked pinch-hitter Jim Leyritz with the bases loaded. The Yankees won for the 19th time in their last 22 playoff and Series games.
