Game 7 World Series Notes

November 13, 2019

Howie Kendrick’s World Series game seven/7th inning, go ahead to stay, home run weeks back,  was the latest (in game) such blow and only the second in game 7/World Series annals.

The other was hit by the great Wilver Stargell, 40 years earlier for the Pittsburgh Pirates, giving them a (2-1) lead, (top of the 6th inning), they did not relinquish in a victory at Baltimore, vs the Orioles.

In game 7 of the 1960 World Series, also won by the Pirates (10-9, vs the Yankees), both Yogi Berra of the Yankees (a 3 run home run T5, that put the Yankees ahead (5-4) and Hal Smith of the Pirates, (an historic, so often forgotten, 3 run homer that put Pittsburgh ahead 9-7 with 2 out in the bottom of the eighth) hit the other two game7/World Series home runs, that transformed a deficit into a lead.

A major reason Smith’s home run is often forgotten, is the fact the Yankees tied the game with two runs in the top of the 9th, only to lose the Series when Bill Mazeroski homered, on the second pitch of the bottom of the ninth inning.
