#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History #19

#20  is here.

#19 October 2, 1971 1971 NLCS Game One

The first postseason game at Candlestick since McCovey's lineout ended the '62 World Series.
We win Game 1 of the NLCS against the Pirates 5-4, on a big 4 run 5th inning. We were down 2-1 hitting against not yet crazy Steve Blass; Chris Speier led off with a single; Gaylord Perry moved him over to second; Ken Henderson grounded out – and then Tito Fuentes hit an improbable 2 run homer (he had only 4 homers during the season). Willie Mays, who had a solid bounceback season in ’71 walked and then Willie McCovey hit our second two run homer in the inning, giving us the 5-2 lead. Gaylord Perry gave up 2 in the 7th – but it was 1971 and that didn’t automatically mean a pitching change (beyond Perry and Juan Marichal, who were both just okay, we had a really poor pitching staff) and Perry not only finished the inning – but finished the game – even when, with 1 on and 1 out and a 1 run lead in the 9th inning he had to face Clemente and Stargell.
He got them both and we took game 1.
The 18th Greatest Moment in Candlestick Park History is tomorrow.
