• The Last Time Home Team Won W.S. Game 5 After Being Down 3-1 And Having Lost Game 4

    Posted by on November 2nd, 2009 · Comments (5)

    Title here says it all. And, according to my quick scan, the last time this happened was Game 5 of the 1995 World Series.

    And, the last time a team lost Game 5 of a World Series, at home, after losing Game 4 and being down three games to one, was the 2000 World Series. And, in case you forgot, the Yankees won that one in five games. ;-)

      When was the last time a team had to do it against Cliff Lee?

      @ yankees27th:
      Al Leiter in 2000 was just as good as Cliff Lee in 2009.

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      Al Leiter in Game 5 of 2000 was amazing. He was operating on fumes at that point but he battled the hell out of the Yanks. I really gained a lot of respect for him on that night.

      @ MJ:
      Didn’t Leiter throw around 140 pitches that night?
