6th game of world series
Game Six: Cincinnati, Boston, and the 1975 World Series: The Triumph of Americas Pastime by Mark FrostBoston, Tuesday, October 21, 1975. The Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds have endured an excruciating three-day rain delay. Tonight, at last, they will play Game Six of the World Series. Leading three games to two, Cincinnati hopes to win it all; Boston is desperate to stay alive. But for all the anticipation, nobody could have predicted what a classic it would turn out to be: an extra-innings thriller, created by one of the Big Red Machines patented comebacks and the Red Soxs improbable late-inning rally; clutch hitting, heart-stopping defensive plays, and more twists and turns than a Grand Prix circuit, climaxed by one of the most famous home runs in baseball history that ended it in the twelfth. Here are all the inside stories of some of that eras biggest names in sports: Johnny Bench, Luis Tiant, Sparky Anderson, Pete Rose, Carl Yastrzemski--eight Hall of Famers in all--as well as sportscasters and network execs, cameramen, umpires, groundskeepers, politicians, and fans who gathered in Fenway that extraordinary night.
Game Six is an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at what is considered by many to be the greatest baseball game ever played--remarkable also because it was about so much more than just balls and strikes. This World Series marked the end of an era; baseballs reserve clause was about to be struck down, giving way to the birth of free agency, a watershed moment that changed American sports forever. In bestselling author Mark Frosts talented hands, the historical significance of Game Six becomes every bit as engrossing as its compelling human drama.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were facing elimination at home, but they rallied for a victory in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday, and will host a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday. He was nearly unhittable in the first five innings but he unraveled to start the sixth, with a single, a hit-by-pitch and a double leading to one run, and a sacrifice fly leading to another. He took the loss despite only allowing three hits.

The sixth game of the Series was a inning classic at Boston's Fenway Park culminated by a game-winning home run by Carlton Fisk to extend the series to seven games. It was the third World Series appearance by the Reds in six years, losing in to Baltimore and in to Oakland. Oddly, this was the fourth consecutive time that a seven-game series winner Pittsburgh , Oakland , Oakland , Cincinnati scored fewer runs than the losing team. NL Cincinnati Reds 4 vs. AL Boston Red Sox 3. Aces Luis Tiant and Don Gullett were locked in a scoreless pitching duel until the seventh inning.
David Lengel. Thu 25 Oct In a key fifth inning moment, Roberts lifted his starter on 69 pitches, in favor of a reliever who had a five plus ERA this season, and who had given up the lead on the previous night. It did not work out. Not even close.
The World Series was the 83rd edition of Major League Baseball 's championship series , and the conclusion of the Major League Baseball season. This was a game in which the Red Sox were twice one strike away from victory, and known for the famous error by Boston's first baseman Bill Buckner after their lead had already been blown. It was also the first World Series to use the designated hitter only in games played at the American League representative's stadium, a policy which has continued since prior to this, since , the DH would be used in all parks in the World Series for even-numbered years, but in odd-numbered years, the DH rule would not be in effect. Just three days later, the Mets played a game in Cincinnati that saw Ray Knight, Darryl Strawberry, and Kevin Mitchell get ejected , forcing starting catcher Gary Carter to play third base and the Mets to play a pitcher in the outfield, with lefty Jesse Orosco and right-hander Roger McDowell alternating between the pitcher's mound and the outfield as needed. Despite the adversity, the Mets won the game, in 14 innings, on a three-run homer by Howard Johnson. The Angels never recovered from this blow, and with Boston capitalizing on some defensive miscues by the Angels, and clutch performances by some of their big name players namely Rice and Clemens in the deciding game , the Red Sox clinched the pennant with a seven-game series win. In the opener, Boston's Bruce Hurst dazzled the New Yorkers with his looping curve and forkball, allowing only four hits over eight innings, and getting Ray Knight to ground into an inning-ending double play to escape trouble in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Hunter Felt. Sun 28 Oct Dave Roberts handed this game to the Boston Red Sox. Cora too probably made an error in keeping Rodriguez in the game too long, but obviously winning overtakes that. Thanks for following along tonight, especially those who contributed. So, the Red Sox will have their ace, Chis Sale, on the mound in Game 5 tomorrow night with a chance to clinch their 4th World Series of the millennium.
