More On The 1968 World Series

August 29, 2018

The incredible Bob Gibson with wins in his two W.S. starts in 1968 had retired the first two Tigers’ batters in the top of the 7th, when Detroit struck for 3 runs on 4 consecutive hits that essentially gave them their first title since 1945.

Norm Cash, Willie Horton, Jim Northrup and Bill Freehan all delivered hits vs Mr. Gibson, whose 1.12 ERA that season is one of baseball’s great feats.

Lolich won three games in that World Series, while Dennis McLain a 31 game winner in ’68, twice beaten vs Gibson, had the other Tigers’ pitching victory.


The Tigers won 3 straight road games at St. Louis in that World Series.
