Exact Anniversaries Involving The Dodgers

October 18, 2016

The Dodgers win in game 2 of the NLCS came on the exact 28 year anniversary of another L.A. win behind an ace pitcher, in game 2 of the 1988 World Series with hurler, Orel Hershiser.

In the NLCS game this season, L.A. ace, Clayton Kershaw won. Unlike Hershiser, and in other great postseason pitching performances of the past, Mr. Kershaw, who is getting far too much positive publicity now and received far too much when he was not winning postseason games, did not pitch all nine innings, hurling only seven.

In game 1 of this year’s NLCS, L.A. was victimized by a dramatic home team pinch hit home run, (a bottom of the 8th inning grand slam in a tie game by the Cubs’ Miguel Montero) reversing their even more dramatic win on Kirk Gibson’s 2 out, bottom of the ninth inning, 2 run home run, that transformed a (4-3) deficit into a (5-4) win exactly 28 years earlier. (Has anyone other than me cited this and if so checked the time of day on each of those home runs? They had to be close in the time of day).

Again concerning the dramatic pinch home runs, on the same date and day (Saturdays) 28 years apart in Dodgers’ postseason games, does anyone know what time the Kirk Gibson and Miguel Montero home runs were hit.

The latter was hit in Chicago and the iconic musical group of the same name, not only asked what time but if anyone cares? (what time it is). Click below to view “Chicago” sing that great hit.
