The World Series is rich in victories and interesting matches. Today we take a look at the 5 best and most memorable baseball games.
Match 7, 2016, World Series – Cubs 8, Indians 7 – Extra Innings.
In an incredible Game 7 of the MLB Finals, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians. In the major championship series, Chicago, playing in the National Baseball League, beat American League club Cleveland Indians in seven games (4-3). Although Chicago lost in the current series with a score of 1-3. The seventh meeting ended with a score of 8: 7 in the extra heat (10m).
In the eighth inning of Game 7, Chicago led with a score of 6: 3. Moreover, before the extra round, the match was interrupted for half an hour because of the rain. Chicago’s decisive score came on a hit from Ben Zobrist, who became the first player since 1945 to score a run in the extra inning of a World Series.
2018, a game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.
On October 27, 2018, the longest match in World Series history took place. In the MLB Series Finals, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox played the longest game in World Series history. The meeting lasted over seven hours. The victory was won by the hosts (3: 2). The score of the final series is 2-1 in favor of the Boston Red Sox. Note that nine additional rounds have been played (the period of play, divided into two parts, during which one of the teams plays in attack, the other in defense-ed.). The match was decided in the 18th round.
3. 1985, the first Derby home run.
The only baseball competition started in 1985. It was a breath of fresh air, because first and foremost, entertainment events were an All-Star Game. The first edition brought together 5 Hall of Fame members – Cal Ripken, Eddie Murray, Calton Fisk, Ryan Sandberg and Jim Rice. But the victory was celebrated by Dave Parker, the outfielder from Cincinnati. To be successful he only needed 6 home runs, a ridiculous number at the moment. In the 90s, the contest was broadcast on national television, becoming one of the most popular sports shows on cable. But the public watched the contest not only because of the crazy home runs but mostly because of the stars who took part in the action every year.
4. 1983, the only grand slam in history.
What hasn’t happened in the nearly 80-year history of All-Star baseball! However, even an achievement already recorded can still cause a real surprise. The main achievement of this type was the only grand slam in MVZ history. The surprise of the fans is mainly due to his unique presence since in theory, the best batsmen have to load bases more than once per game during All-Star Matches. Therefore, there must also be a master of a grand slam, a home run that earns the maximum points in baseball-4. But ironically, only Fred Lynn can boast of such curiosity, which broke a 50-year drought, and after which there was a new one – a 30-year one. In the 1983 game, when the bases are loaded, he comes out. On the contrary, Freddy’s is Hammaker. 4 throws – 2 balls and 2 strikes. The fifth was fatal for Hammaker. The then-California Angels outfielder not only made a huge contribution to his team’s victory, but also secured the MVP of the game title.
5. 1934, Karl Hubel destroys the greatest.
Martinez’s performance has undoubtedly gone down in the annals of history, but it will never come close to what Karl Hubel once did in an incredibly distant 1934. It was only the second All-Star Game in history, but it immediately gave Eternity a decent copy. The New York Giants pitcher faced Murderers Row that day. They are the 5 greatest baseball players of not only their generation of all time. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jamie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin. 5 concrete members of the Hall of Fame through whom it seemed impossible to pass dry to anyone. Hubel passed. 5 strikeouts in a row. It’s like shamelessly beating Jordan, Magic, LeBron, Bryant, Byrd 5 times in a row or putting PelÃ©, Maradona, Messi, Ronaldo, Platini on fifth point in a single pass. Something like that. Sixth place went to Lefty Gomez, allowing Khubelu to set one of baseball’s oldest records for strikeouts.
