    St. Louis Cardinals 0 at Kansas City Royals 11, F -- The "Show-Me Series" came to an end on October 27, 1985 at Royals Stadium when the night after becoming a father, Royals pitcher Bret Saberhagen threw a five-hitter while leading his team to victory. The Royals became the only team to ever come from a three games to one deficit twice in the same postseason to win the World Series.moreless

    S 1 : Ep 978506 - 10/28/07

    Boston Red Sox 4 at Colorado Rockies 3, F -- There was certainly no 86-year wait this time. The Red Sox used two homers and superb pitching to complete a sweep and propel once-title-starved Boston to its second World Series title in four seasons. It all ended with Jonathan Papelbon, the closer who has been brilliant all year and into the postseason, striking out Seth Smith on 95-mph heat. The fiery right-hander tossed his glove high in the air with joy, took his hat off and then embraced catcher Jason Varitek after saving the World Series clincher for left-hander Jon Lester. From there, it was a sea of Red Sox piling on top of each other in the middle of the diamond.moreless

    Cleveland Indians 2 at Boston Red Sox 11, F -- The Red Sox are the AL's best as they rode the home crowd and Dustin Pedroia's five RBIs to surge past the Indians. Daisuke Matsuzaka's solid start and a six-out save by closer Jonathan Papelbon bookended Boston's return to the Fall Classic. Boston completed its dramatic comeback from 3-1 down in this series, becoming the first team in Major League history to pull off that feat three times.moreless

    October 24, 1992: 1992 World Series, Game 6: Toronto Blue Jays 4 at Atlanta Braves 3, F/11 -- Dave Winfield picked the perfect moment for his first extra-base hit in twelve career World Series games. With the score tied in the 11th and the Blue Jays one win away from Canada's first-ever World Series title, Winfield burned Charlie Leibrandt for a double down the left field line to put Toronto up 4-2. The Braves mounted a comeback, but ultimately fell short, 4-3.moreless

    May 6, 1998: Houston Astros 0 at Chicago Cubs 2, F -- The most dominating pitching performance of the 1998 season wasn't turned in by one of the usual suspects. No, it wasn't Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez or Roger Clemens who blew up on May 6th with a phenomenal 20-strikeout, one-hit gem; it was a 20-year old neophyte by the name of Kerry Wood who went from a promising Cubs rookie to a household name in a matter of hours.moreless

    May 17, 1979: Philadelphia Phillies 23 at Chicago Cubs 22, F/10 -- The Windy City was certainly living up to its name on this mid-May afternoon at Wrigley. The gusty forces blowing through the friendly confines of the quaint old park insured that, as shortstop Larry Bowa recalled, "no lead was safe." So leaving the ballpark or shutting off the television after the Phillies jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the top of the first was a grave mistake. The Cubs came right back with six in the bottom half of the inning, and baseball's second-most offensive game was underway. Eleven home runs, 50 hits and 97 total bases... and the Cubs and Phillies still needed a 10th inning to settle the score. When the dust from the players circling the bases finally settled, the Phils dragged their tired bodies out of Wrigley Field with a 23-22 win. The game had a symmetry to it: Mike Schmidt started it all, driving in the first runs with a three run shot in the first; then closing it out with the game-winning RBI in the 10th. Dave "King Kong" Kingman smacked three homers in the loss.moreless

    October 26, 1997: 1997 World Series, Game 7: Cleveland Indians 2 at Florida Marlins 3, F/11 -- At first, the 1997 World Series between the powerful Cleveland Indians and the upstart Marlins seemed as if it would be memorable only because it marked the first time a wild-card team made it to the big dance. But as Florida's Craig Counsell touched home plate to end only the third extra-inning Game 7 in Major League history, it became clear that the two teams had played in a modern classic that was as memorable as any of the great Series-ending contests in Octobers past.moreless

    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

    October 15, 1988: 1988 World Series, Game 1: Oakland Athletics 4 at Los Angeles Dodgers 5, F -- The Dodgers, already serious underdogs against the A's and Bash Brothers Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, are given even less of a chance with injured star Kirk Gibson on the shelf. Canseco's second-inning grand slam gives Oakland a 4-3 lead until the bottom of the ninth, when dominating closer Dennis Eckersley comes on to finish it up. But with the tying run on first, Gibson limps up to pinch hit and makes World Series history with a spine-tingling, game-winning two-run homer in his only at-bat of the Series.moreless

    October 9, 1996: 1996 ALCS, Game 1: Baltimore Orioles 4 at New York Yankees 5, F -- Home-field advantage took on new meaning in Game 1 of the 1996 ALCS as the Yankees earned the upper hand in the series. With the Orioles holding a 4-3 lead going to the bottom of the eighth, fate - in the form of 12-year-old Yankee fan Jeffrey Maier - intervened. Yankee rookie Derek Jeter led off the inning with a fly ball to right field, and Orioles right fielder Tony Tarasco appeared to have it measured for the catch, but Maier reached out and snatched it away and over the fence. Bernie Williams led off the bottom of the 11th with a homer off Orioles closer Randy Myers to lift the Yankees to the win.moreless

    October 9, 2005: 2005 NLDS Game 4: Atlanta Braves 6 at Houston Astros 7, F/18 -- The 2005 Houston Astros needed just about everyone on their 40-man roster to land their Wild Card berth, so it is also fitting that the heroics came from a melting pot of Astros players. The Braves were ahead 6-1 in the eighth, when Lance Berkman launched a grand slam, followed by a game-tying solo shot by Brad Ausmus in the 9th. The second half of the game included three innings of relief by Roger Clemens, appearing as a pinch-hitter in the 15th, and pitching in relief for only the second time in his career (and appearing this time only because the Astros were out of pitchers). The collective efforts in this epic drama will be remembered for many things, the least of which is the fact that it was the longest postseason game in Major League history. It is also the only postseason game to include two grand slams, Berkman's and Adam LaRoche's. Even more remarkable than that, perhaps, is the fact that the fan who caught Chris Burke's game-winning walk-off homer in the 18th was, in fact, the same fan who had caught Berkman's grand slam in the eighth; the fan later donated both balls to the Baseball Hall of Fame.moreless

    October 26, 1996: 1996 World Series, Game 6: Atlanta Braves 2 at New York Yankees 3, F -- Having blown a two-games-to-none lead in the series, the Braves needed a win to stay alive. But the Yanks broke through early, scoring three runs in the third inning off ace Greg Maddux. After a Joe Girardi triple got things rolling, Bernie Williams provided a single that scored Derek Jeter with the winning run in the Series' decisive contest. Jimmy Key and a strong Yankee bullpen held off Atlanta, closing things out when Charlie Hayes squeezed Mark Lemke's foul pop for the final out and the end of a dramatic series.moreless

    October 27, 1999: 1999 World Series, Game 4, Atlanta Braves 1 at NY Yankees 4, F -- The Yankees became the first team to sweep consecutive World Series in 60 years -- since the DiMaggio Yankees did it to the Cubs and Reds in 1938-39 - when they beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 in Yankee Stadium. After a regular season filled with personal tragedies and illnesses, the final game of the decade saw 56,752 fans cheer on Roger Clemens for seven-plus innings as the future Hall of Famer allowed just one run, then sat back and watched as Mariano Rivera finished-off Atlanta and helped the Rocket earn his first World Series title.moreless

    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

    October 14, 1965: 1965 World Series, Game 7: Los Angeles Dodgers 2 at Minnesota Twins 0, F -- With a league-leading 26 wins, 2.04 ERA and a then-record 382 strikeouts, Sandy Koufax was unquestionably the best pitcher in all of baseball. But with an advancing case of arthritis in his golden left arm, every breathtaking outing was countered by hours of treatment to keep the barely tolerable pain at bay. Once again, the light-hitting Dodgers had latched on to the most prized pitcher in baseball to carry them into the World Series, and once again, they were forced to rely on heavy innings from their ace to give them a fighting chance. After over 335 innings of labor in the regular season, it looked like the forces of nature finally caught up with number 32, as he lost Game 2 to the Minnesota Twins. But Koufax bounced back with a shutout victory in Game 5, and was handed the ball for the Series clincher in Minneapolis after only two days of rest. His counterpart on the mound was big southpaw Jim Kaat, whose job in the Series was to keep up with the Dodger ace. The 18-game winner had beaten Koufax in Game 2, then been on the receiving end of the Game 5 shutout. The World Championship depended on which left arm could deliver the best punch.moreless
