Episode Summary

EDIT
1985 ALCS, Game 3: Blue Jays at Royals
October 11, 1985: 1985 ALCS, Game 3: Toronto Blue Jays 5 at Kansas City Royals 6, F -- In the first year of the LCS moving to a best-of-seven, the Royals entered Game 3 down 2-0 in the series, but not yet on the brink of elimination. Manager Dick Howser (his postseason record a dismal 0-11) sent Cy Young winner Bret Saberhagen to the mound against Blue Jays veteran Doyle Alexander. George Brett homered in the first to give the Royals a 1-0 lead, then saved a run in the third with a gutsy defensive play at the plate. Brett then led off the fourth with a double, scoring on Frank White's sac fly to increase the KC lead to 2-0. A Blue Jays rally in the fifth included a line drive off Saberhagen's leg, and the inning ended with Bud Black on the mound and the Jays leading 5-2. The Royals regained a run in the next inning, and in the sixth Brett hit his second homer to tie the game 5-5. He was again the sparkplug in the 8th with aggressive baserunning, scoring the go-ahead run on Steve Balboni's single to give KC a 6-5 lead, which they defended for the win. At the end of the day, Brett was 4-4 with a single, double and two home runs, driving in three and scoring four, in addition to his run-saving defensive play, and Game 3 served as the turning point in the series, which the Royals ultimately won in seven games.moreless
