Episode Summary

1978 World Series, Game 6: Yankees at Dodgers
New York Yankees 7 at Los Angeles Dodgers 2, F -- The New York Yankees wrapped up their 22nd championship behind the unlikely duo of Bucky Dent and Brian Doyle, as a tremendous seventh-inning Reggie Jackson home run off Game 2 nemesis Bob Welch put the final nail in the coffin. Closer Rich “Goose” Gossage blanked the Dodgers for the final two innings, as Captain Thurman Munson caught the final out of the game on a foul pop by Ron Cey. Dent would be named World Series MVP, batting .417 with 10 hits, 7 RBI, and 3 runs scored; Doyle would make a claim for the MVP himself with a .438 average, 7 hits, 2 RBI, and 4 runs. Sadly, this would be the final post-season game of Munson's career before his death during the 1979 season.moreless
