October 17, 1978
New York Yankees 7 at Los Angeles Dodgers 2, F -- New York wraps up its 22nd Championship, lifted by the unlikely heroics of Bucky Dent and Brian Doyle. Dent would be named World Series MVP, batting .417 with 10 hits, 7 RBI, and 3 runs scored. Doyle would make a claim for the MVP himself with a .438 average, 7 hits, 2 RBI, and 4 runs. Closer Rich "Goose" Gossage blanked the Dodgers for the final two innings, as Captain Thurman Munson caught the final out of the game on a foul pop by Ron Cey. Sadly, this would be the final post-season game of Munson's career before his death during the 1979 season.

New York Yankees 5 at Boston Red Sox 4, F -- The Yanks' comeback season culminates with this showdown for all the postseason-play marbles, and Bucky Dent is the unlikely hero. For two bitter rivals, it all came down to this one-game showdown at historic Fenway Park. The winner would earn a trip to the ALCS against the Kansas City Royals; the loser would go home with 99 wins, and nothing to show for them. The Yankees, who had mounted one of the most memorable comebacks in baseball history (trailing the AL East-leading Red Sox by 14 games in mid-July), sent wiry lefty Ron Guidry and his 24-3 record out to the mound against former teammate Mike Torrez. Reggie Jackson homered and an unorthodox, but key, defensive play by Lou Piniella in left field are both often overlooked, as it was the home run by the light-hitting shortstop Bucky Dent that provided the unexpected muscle to power the Yankees into the postseason.

Los Angeles Dodgers 4 at New York Yankees 8, F -- Reg-gie! Reg-gie! Reg-gie! Mr. October is born. In a performance as legendary as any Yankee great before him, Reggie Jackson blasted three consecutive home runs on three pitches against three different Dodger hurlers (Burt Hooton, Elias Sosa and Charlie Hough) into the frenzied Stadium throng. It was his defining moment in pinstripes; a dramatic performance that won over the fans, his teammates, (including captain Thurman Munson, with whom he'd had a tumultuous relationship since Reggie claimed he was "the straw that stirred the drink" even before he arrived in New York) and helped justify his self-styled nickname, "Mr. October." His three home runs in one game -- accomplished twice by Babe Ruth -- and five total HRs were both World Series records.
1976 ALCS, Game 5: Royals at Yankees
3. 1976 ALCS, Game 5: Royals at Yankees
October 14, 1976
KC Royals 6 at NY Yankees 7, F -- With the Royals trailing by three, George Brett blasts a clutch homer in the eighth to tie the game at six apiece. But Chris Chambliss' lead-off walk-off sends the Stadium faithful into a frenzy and vaults the Yankees back in the World Series for the first time since 1964.
1952 World Series, Game 7: Yankees at Dodgers
2. 1952 World Series, Game 7: Yankees at Dodgers
October 7, 1952
New York Yankees 4 at Brooklyn Dodgers 2, F -- Gene Woodling and Mickey Mantle homered, and Billy Martin made a memorable game-saving grab of an infield popup gone awry, as the Yanks recovered 3-2 game deficit to win their fourth of five straight World Series. Mantle's homer in the sixth gave the Yankees the lead for good, and with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the inning, Jackie Robinson hit a high pop up that Yankees first baseman Joe Collins appeared to lose in the sun. But Martin charged in from second base to snatch the ball at his shoe tops to end the inning and snuff out the Bums' last threat, leaving the Dodger faithful to their annual refrain: "Wait 'til next year!"
1952 World Series, Game 6: Yankees at Dodgers

New York Yankees 3 at Brooklyn Dodgers 2, F -- A classic "Subway Series," old-school style. Leading the Series 3-2, Brooklyn rookie Billy Loes battled Yankee veteran Vic Raschi zero for zero for five complete innings. Duke Snider and Yogi Berra exchanged solo shots in the sixth, and young slugger Mickey Mantle's first career World Series home run extended the lead to 3-1. Snider's second HR of the game drew the Dodgers within a run, but Yankees ace Allie Reynolds relieved Raschi and finished off the 3-2 win to send the Series to a seventh game.
