Friday, December 20, 2013

The full 100-11 recap is here.

#10 October 1, 1962 Game 163

The greatest baseball team in San Francisco history had to make up a 4 game deficit in the last 8 games of the 1962 season to force baseball's last ever 3 game playoff.

All the Giants had to do in Game 1, the only game of the series which would be held at Candlestick, was beat Sandy Koufax.

Which they did.  8-0.  Willie Mays homered twice, the first a two run shot off Koufax in the first inning.  Billy Pierce threw a complete game 3 hitter, and two days later the Giants won their first San Francisco pennant.

The 9th greatest moment in Candlestick Park history is tomorrow.
