Episode Summary

EDIT
October 27, 1986: 1986 World Series, Game 7: Boston Red Sox 5 at New York Mets 8, F -- Both teams were facing their final game in one of the most dramatic postseasons ever: the Mets finally triumphant in an epic NLCS vs. the Houston Astros; the Red Sox fighting the "Curse of the Bambino" and the California Angels in the ALCS… and of course both clubs coming directly off the heels of the infamous "Bill Buckner" Game 6. And so the 1986 season for all the marbles came down to this final game at a packed and raucous Shea Stadium. A rainout of the originally-scheduled Game 7 the day before allowed the pressure to build for another 24 hours. Boston jumped out to a 3-0 lead; the Mets tied it four innings later, and built the lead in the 7th and 8th innings, including a home run by Darryl Strawberry and an RBI by closer Jesse Orosco. Indeed, it was Orosco's 1-2-3 ninth inning, and his subsequent flinging of arms and glove into the air that became the iconic image for these '86 Mets and their Championship season, and another defeat for the long-suffering Red Sox and their fans. Of course, it could not be known at the time, but this was the last World Series game the Sox would lose in 20 years; they swept to Championships in 2004 and 2007. At the time, however, it was a heart-stopping end to one of the classic postseasons in baseball history.moreless
