Minnesota Twins vs Atlanta Braves
World Series Game 4, Twins up 2-1
It's the bottom of the 5th inning and the game is tied 1-1. The Twins already lead the series 2-1 so Atlanta is desperate to win this game. Jack Morris is on the mound and Lonnie Smith steps to the plate. Smith singles to left and then steals second on a 2-0 count to Terry Pendelton. On the next pitch, doubles to deep center. Twins center fielder Kirby Puckett retrieved the ball, fired to relay man Chuck Knoblauch who fired to catcher Brian Harper. This is what happened:
Smith was OUT!! Pendleton advanced to third on the throw. The Braves failed to score this inning, but eventually did win the game to even the Series at 2-2.
Unfortunately for Braves fans, Jack Morris would come back and pitch a 10 inning shutout in game 7 to win the World Series for the Twins.
