World Series

Perspective

October 27, 2002

Some memorable moments in World Series Game 6 history:

1911 -- Danny Murphy of Philadelphia had four hits as the Athletics beat the New York Giants, 13-2, to win the World Series in six games. The A's put the game out of reach with a seven-run seventh inning.

1977 -- Reggie Jackson hit three consecutive home runs to lead the New York Yankees to an 8-4 victory over the Dodgers and give them the World Series title in six games. Jackson drove in five runs. All three homers came on the first pitch.

1985 -- Dane Iorg's two-run single and a disputed call by first base umpire Don Denkinger in the ninth inning gave the Kansas City Royals a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals and tied the World Series.

1986 -- The New York Mets rallied for three runs with two outs in the 10th inning against the Boston Red Sox and pushed the World Series to a decisive seventh game. The tiebreaking run scored on Boston first baseman Bill Buckner's error on Mookie Wilson's slow grounder.

1993 -- Joe Carter became the second player in baseball history to end a World Series with a home run, hitting a three-run shot off Mitch Williams in the ninth inning that gave the Toronto Blue Jays their second consecutive championship with an 8-6 victory.
