Odds & Ends

This Date In Baseball

Oct. 12

1920 — Cleveland’s Stan Coveleski won his third game in the World Series as the Indians beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 3-0 and won the championship, five games to two.

1977 — The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Yankees 6-1 to even the World Series after two games. Catfish Hunter, who had not pitched in over a month, started the game for the Yankees. Ron Cey, Steve Yeager and Reggie Smith all homered and knocked out Hunter in the third inning.

1986 — The California Angels were one pitch away from their first pennant when they let the Boston Red Sox back into the American League playoffs with an 11-inning 7-6 victory in Game 5.

2010 — Cliff Lee tossed another postseason gem and Texas won a playoff series for the first time, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 in a decisive Game 5 of the ALDS. It was the first time in major league history that the road team had won every game in a postseason series. It was the first playoff series victory in the 50-season history of the Washington/Texas franchise. Lee, who struck out 11 in a six-hitter, improved to 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and three complete games in seven career postseason starts.

2013 — Rookie Michael Wacha pitched into the seventh inning with zero margin for error and the St. Louis Cardinals silenced the Los Angeles Dodgers for the second straight day, winning 1-0 for a 2-0 lead in the NL championship series. The Cardinals managed only two hits off Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers, but Jon Jay’s sacrifice fly set up by A.J. Ellis’ passed ball in the fifth stood up.
