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.

Starting lineups in Game 7 of the 1986 Mets-Red Sox World Series.

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!
