Sandlot Baseball – (Red Sox vs Cardinals) World Series Game 1, 1967

October 5, 2010

(continuing 1967 Red Sox “Impossible Dream” season)

Bob Gibson was the man in Game 1 for the St. Louis Cardinals, striking out 10, and limiting the Sox to 6 hits and 1 run. Red Sox pitcher, Jose Santiago, came through with a gutsy performance for the Sox but it just wasn’t enough. The Sox lost 2-1, and the only run came off the bat of Mr. Santiago himself:

Here are a few short snippets from the Boston Globe. As you can see, Yaz still picked the Sox in 6:

The box score from Game 1:

It was time for the Sox to re-group. Could they bounce back with Lonborg on the mound in Game 2?

One Comment
  1. The Red Sox had a fine season, but being the last MLB team to integrate certainly had a detrimental affect on their fortunes for many years. Their Cardinals opponents were way out in front in that department, as were most N.L. teams and a couple of A.L. teams.
    Still, that takes nothing away from the fantastic performances by the Red Sox players in this memorable season.
    Nice series of posts, Bill
