Greatest Red Sox Game Ever?

by @ 6:53 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

Alright, we’ve already hit up two games in the Greatest Games series so let’s look at one more.  Man it would have been awesome to have Red Sox Tickets for this game.  This one we have to go way back to 1975.  With the Red Sox down 3-2, they went back to Boston and played one for the ages.  I know many people thing Game seven in 1991 and now games six in 2011 are the greatest World Series games but Game six of the 1975 World Series is my personal favorite.

White the Reds weren’t to be denied in the series, this game gave everyone pause.  The Red Sox jumped out to a three run lead in the first only to see the Reds score six unanswered runs.  The Reds then came back, scored three in the bottom of the eighth and then neither scored until the twelfth when you have the Carlton Fisk down the foul line home run that ended the game and forced a game six.  Just writing about it here makes me want to go back and watch this one again.
