I am very fond of 1980, especially if the year ends with Tug McGraw striking out Willie Wilson. biggrin

Dennis Eckersley mowed down 10 Milwaukee batters and center fielder Fred Lynn

had 3 base hits and 3 RBI as the Boston RedSox beat the Milwaukee Brewers by

a score of 10 to 1.

 

Eckersley(1-0) was simply too much for the Milwaukee batters.  He was stingy

on the mound, allowing just 5 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings.  Boston had a

total of 17 hits for the game. 

 

Jim Slaton(0-1) took the loss.  Eckersley was pleased with his performance.

He noted, 'I had good command of all my pitches.  Just as important, my

location was right on.'

Jeff Newman lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 4 RBI as the Oakland A's

bested the Minnesota Twins 10 to 7 at Oakland Co Stadium.

 

Newman provided much of the offense.  He ripped a base-knock plating a run in

the 1st inning, clubbed a three-run home run in the 5th inning and doubled in

the 8th inning.  Minnesota had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

 

The winning pitcher was Rick Langford(1-0) who allowed 6 runs in 8 innings.

Jerry Koosman(0-1) was hit with the loss.  Oakland knocked him around a bit,

as he gave up 7 runs in 4 innings. 

 

'Anytime you lose it hurts,' said Gene Mauch 'but it's losing the close ones

that really hurt.'

I am hoping it will be Steve Rogers going the distance and striking out Willie Wilson , but I hope it is a close race with the Phillies as it was in real life  


Did it ever come down to the last few games that year!  I still remember Schmidt hitting those two ultra clutch homeruns:  the one that tied the game on Friday night (game 160) that the Phils went on to win and the game on Saturday night (game 161) -- a walkoff.  At the time, I was a freshman in college working for Sears & Roebuck catalog division.  The store closed at 9 pm and I made a beeline to close out the register and to get to my car.  Both nights I heard Kalas call Schmidt's homers on the radio.  What a great memory ... only I wish I had been there!  I was there for game 6 with my Uncle when the Phillies won it all and saw Wilson strikeout against McGraw.    I'm not letting go of those memories!

 Very nice! I was at Pittsburgh when the Pirates beat the Reds to advance to the 79 series
