Exactly 50 Years Ago Yesterday That Bob Gibson And St. Louis (Cardinals) Won Game 7 at Boston

October 13, 2017

It was exactly 50 years ago yesterday, on Thursday October 12, 1967 when Columbus Day was observed then, hence no school, that the great pitcher Bob Gibson hurled the St. Louis Cardinals to a decisive 7th game triumph at Boston vs the Red Sox.

Julian Javier had a big hit as Gibson won in a game 7 for the second time in 4 seasons.

St. Louis handed the Red Sox the first two of their 4 game 7 losses, the four W.S. they lost from the time they had last won in 1918 until they did so in 2004, against St.Louis whom they also beat in the 2013 W.S. under John Farrell, who regrettably was let go by Boston the other day.

 

The Cards led 3 games to 1 in that ’67 World Series but needed Gibson in game 7.

The next year they were not as fortunate.
