#4 is here.

#3 October 15, 1962 1962 World Series Game Six

It was as close as Candlestick ever got to seeing a World Series Champion Giants club.

The '62 series took 5 days off due to rain; 35 year old Billy Pierce was near the end of a borderline Hall of Fame career and took the ball against Whitey Ford.  He threw a 3 hit complete game; Orlando Cepeda had 3 hits, and the Giants forced a Game 7 with a 5-2 win over the Yankees.

The second greatest moment in Candlestick history is tomorrow.
