#5 October 5, 1962 1962 World Series Game Two

In 1962, the Giants won two World Series games at Candlestick.

It never happened again.

Here's the first, the Giants were dead on their feet, playing their 9th game in 8 days and 42nd game in 45 days (42 games in 45 days and every one of them vital) they dropped the opener, needing to win this one to really preserve any chance in the series.

They did - Jack Sanford threw a complete game 3 hitter; Willie McCovey hit a 7th inning home run, and the Giants evened up the series with a 2-0 win over the Yankees.

History, curiously, has forgotten how this Series turned out.

The 4th greatest moment in Candlestick history is tomorrow.
