Episode Summary

EDIT
October 11, 1986: 1986 NLCS, Game 3: Houston Astros 5 at New York Mets 6, F -- Game 3 in a series tied 1-1 are always critical momentum changers. Mets starter Ron Darling was shaky early, allowing four runs in the first two innings, but settled down after that. The Mets got back into the game in the 6th, tying it on Darryl Strawberry’s three-run shot. Ray Knight committed the Mets' only error of the series in the 7th, allowing the Astros to regain the lead, 5-4, and it stayed that way until the bottom of the 9th. With Astros' closer Dave Smith on the mound, Wally Backman bunted his way on, benefiting from a controversial runner-out-of-the-baseline call. He advanced to second on a passed ball, but it would not matter. One batter later, up stepped fan favorite, firebrand Lenny "Nails" Dykstra, who struck out in his first at-bat as a pinch-hitter in the 7th. Not known as a power hitter, Nails got ahold of one and enjoyed the two-run walk-off, as the Mets took the game 6-5, and lead in the series, 2-1.moreless
