The end of the streak
The Yankees' 14-game World Series winning streak was stopped with their loss in Game 3. Below is a rundown of that streak:

1996: Yankees 5, Braves 2
Down two games to none, David Cone got out of a big bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning and went on to beat Tom Glavine

1996: Yankees 8, Braves
Down 6-0 in the sixth, the Yankees rally. Jim Leyritz tied the game in the eighth with a three-run pinch-hit homer off Mark Wohlers and the Yankees won it in 10 innings.

1996: Yankees 1, Braves 0
After losing the opener 12-1, Andy Pettitte beat John Smoltz with eight shutout innings to complete a sweep of the three games in Atlanta.

1996: Yankees 3, Braves 2
Jimmy Key beat Greg Maddux while MVP John Wetteland recorded his fourth save of the Series.

1998: Yankees 9, Padres 6
Tino Martinez broke a tie in the seventh inning with an upper-deck grand slam off Mark Langston, one pitch after umpire Richie Garcia failed to ring Tino up on an apparent 2-2 pitch down the middle.

1998: Yankees 9, Padres 3
The Yankees knocked out Padres starter Andy Ashby in the second. El Duque picks up the win.

1998: Yankees 5, Padres 4
MVP Scott Brosius hit a game-winning three-run homer off Padres closer Trevor Hoffman in the eighth.

1998: Yankees 3, Padres 0
Andy Pettitte finished off the sweep with a masterful outing.

1999: Yankees 4, Braves 1
El Duque got the win as four Yankee hurlers combined on a two-hitter.

1999: Yankees 7, Braves 2
David Cone pitched seven innings, allowing one hit, while the Yankees scored three in the first and two in the third.

1999: Yankees 6, Braves 5
Chuck Knoblauch's two-run homer in the eighth off the top of the fence in right tied it and Chad Curtis' home run (his second of the game) won it in the 10th

1999: Yankees 4, Braves 1
Roger Clemens got the win and Series MVP Mariano Rivera his second save to go with a Game 3 win.

2000: Yankees 4, Mets 3
Jose Vizcaino capped off a thrilling game by singling in the game-winner in the 12th inning, his fourth hit of the game.

2000: Yankees 6, Mets 5
In a game marred by the bat-throwing incident involving Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza, Clemens dominated the Mets for eight innings before the Mets made a valiant effort by scoring five runs in the ninth.
