6. 2005 NLCS, Game 6: Astros at Cardinals
October 19, 2005
Houston Astros 5 at St. Louis Cardinals 1, F -- The Astros shook off the shock of their Game 5 NLCS loss and rode the dazzling performance of NLCS MVP Roy Oswalt, who yielded a run on three hits in seven splendid innings. Brad Ausmus' three hits and Jason Lane's home run highlighted a potent offense, as the Astros defeated the Cardinals, 5-1, to win the National League pennant and earn the franchise's first-ever trip to the World Series.

Boston Red Sox 4 at New York Yankees 2, F -- The Bloody Sock: Steely Schilling draws Sox even with history: They seemed to be clinging onto fading hopes over the weekend at Fenway Park, as the board on the door exiting the Red Sox clubhouse offered a simple message. "We can change history. Believe it!" Simply by riding Curt Schilling's gritty performance and Mark Bellhorn's three-run homer to a 4-2 victory over the Yankees, the Red Sox were in a class all by themselves in the annals of Major League Baseball history. Of the 25 previous teams that trailed a best-of-seven postseason series 3-0, none had ever forced a Game 7. Until now. The Red Sox hopped on Schilling's back, and somehow the big righty's ailing right ankle -- which would be operated on as soon as this season ended -- didn't buckle. Schilling gave the Sox seven clutch innings on a night the bullpen was positively spent.
1999 ALDS, Game 5: Red Sox at Indians
4. 1999 ALDS, Game 5: Red Sox at Indians
October 11, 1999
Boston Red Sox 12 at Cleveland Indians 8, F -- If the Red Sox were going to complete their comeback from an 0-2 deficit, they needed to do it without Pedro Martinez, who pulled out of Game 1 with back problems and had yet to return. But with the deciding game tied in the fourth, the ailing Pedro came on in relief, dug deep and threw six innings of no-hit ball. Troy O'Leary, who had hit a grand slam earlier in the game, won it for the Sox with a three-run blast in the seventh.
9/10/99: Pedro Martinez One-hits Yankees
3. 9/10/99: Pedro Martinez One-hits Yankees
September 10, 1999
Boston Red Sox 3 at New York Yankees 1, F -- Pedro Martinez struck out 17 batters -- the most Yankees ever fanned in a single game -- and allowed only two base runners en route to a one-hitter for his 21st victory of the season. Chuck Knoblauch was one of two total Yankee base runners (after being hit by a pitch leading off the first inning), but got caught stealing, so Pedro faced just 28 batters in this dominating performance. On the other side of the diamond, the Red Sox victimized four different Yankee pitchers for 12 hits, and catcher Mike Stanley's two-run home run was all the offense Pedro needed.
1990 World Series, Game 4: Reds at Athletics
2. 1990 World Series, Game 4: Reds at Athletics
October 20, 1990
Cincinnati Reds 2 at Oakland Athletics 1, F -- Reds' starter Jose Rijo, who allowed just one run and two hits in eight-plus innings, shut down Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and the rest of the powerhouse the A's, who were supposed to dominate the Series. But while Oakland ace Dave Stewart was sharp, he could not match Rijo's performance, and by the time "Nasty Boy" Randy Myers came on for the save, the Reds' improbable World Series sweep over the mighty Bash Brother-led A's was secure.
1983 World Series, Game 5: Orioles at Phillies
1. 1983 World Series, Game 5: Orioles at Phillies
October 16, 1983
Baltimore Orioles 5 at Philadelphia Phillies 0, F -- The five-hit pitching of Scott McGregor, combined with Eddie Murray's pair of homers and Rick Dempsey's solo shot, led the O's to their first World Series title in 13 years. Picking up where he left off in Game 1, when he allowed only two runs in eight innings despite taking the loss, McGregor went the distance, striking out six, as the Orioles wrapped up the championship.
