Following the Cubs’ defeat of the Indians last night, the 2016 World Series moves back to Wrigley Field for Game 6 tomorrow night. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name the starting lineups in Game 7 of the 1986 World Series, the second and most recent World Series the Mets won.
The Mets infamously dropped the first two games of that series at home. When the series moved to Boston, the Mets took Games 3 and 4 before losing Game 5. Game 6, which was played in New York, became one of the most memorable games in baseball history, due to a two-out, three-run rally that ended in a “little roller up along first.” After falling behind 3-0, the Mets came back to tie up Game 7 and went on to win it by an 8-5 score.
You’ll have three minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
