Twins Defeat Cards, Force 7th Game in Series

October 25, 1987

The Minnesota Twins, back under their own roof, defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 11-5, Saturday at Minneapolis in Game 6 to even the World Series at three games apiece. The seventh and deciding game will be played tonight in the Metrodome, where the Twins have not lost in five postseason games.

Kent Hrbek's bases-loaded home run in the sixth inning off Cardinal reliever Ken Dayley climaxed a Minnesota comeback from a 5-2 deficit. The grand slam was the second of the series for the Twins.

Designated hitter Don Baylor, who played in the World Series last year for the Boston Red Sox, hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning off St. Louis starter John Tudor to tie the score, 5-5.

The Twins will send Frank Viola to the mound tonight against the Cardinals' Joe Magrane in Game 7.
