1986 World Series, Game 7: Red Sox @ Mets

MLB Vault
Boston Red Sox 5 at New York Mets 8, F — Both teams were facing their final game in one of the most dramatic postseasons ever: the Mets finally triumphant in an epic NLCS vs. the Houston Astros; the Red Sox fighting the “Curse of the Bambino” and the California Angels in the ALCS… and of course both clubs coming directly off the heels of the infamous “Bill Buckner” Game 6. And so the 1986 season for all the marbles came down to this final game at a packed and raucous Shea Stadium. A rainout of the originally-scheduled Game 7 the day before allowed the pressure to build for another 24 hours.
