1982 ALCS, Game 5: Angels at Brewers
October 10, 1982: 1982 ALCS, Game 5: California Angels 3 at Milwaukee Brewers 4, F -- The California Angels had jumped out to a 2-0 series lead in the five-game ALCS, then proceeded to lose three games in a row to the powerful Brewers. The team's prolific offense, led by Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Gorman Thomas, Cecil Cooper and Ben Oglivie (who led the league in home runs, along with the Angels' Reggie Jackson), had earned them the nickname "Harvey's Wallbangers," a play on their manager Harvey Kuenn. In the final game of the series, the Angels took a quick 1-0 lead in the first on a double by Brian Downing and a single by Fred Lynn. The Brew Crew quickly tied the game in the bottom of the inning when Molitor doubled and eventually came home on a sacrifice fly by Ted Simmons. The score continued to see-saw through the 4th, settling on a 3-2 Angels' lead. All remained quiet until the bottom of the 7th, when Milwaukee loaded the bases on two singles and a walk, and Cecil Cooper's two-run single that put the Brewers ahead 4-3. Milwaukee pitching allowed just one hit over the final four innings, and the Wallbangers advanced to the World Series for the first time in franchise history.moreless
