Red Sox

The "Impossible Dream" Red Sox were led by triple crown winner and future Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, who won the Most Valuable Player award for his 1967 performance. Their pitching staff was anchored by Cy Young Award winner Jim Lonborg. The Red Sox reached the World Series by emerging victorious from a dramatic four-team pennant race that revitalized interest in the Red Sox after eight straight losing seasons.

Cardinals

The Cardinals won 101 games en route to the National League pennant, with a team featuring All-Stars Orlando Cepeda, Lou Brock, Tim McCarver, and 1964 World Series MVP Bob Gibson, as well as Roger Maris and Curt Flood. 22 year-old Steve Carlton won 14 games in his first full major league season, beginning what was to be a lengthy career.

Pitching was prime as Gibson and Santiago seemed to have their best stuff for this afternoon game at Fenway Park. The Cards got on the board in the top of the 3rd on a lead-off single to center by Lou Brock, a double by Curt Flood, and a Roger Maris ground-out to first scoring Brock from third. The Sox came right back to tie the score in the bottom of the same inning. After Gibson (Bob) struck out Gibson (catcher, Russ), Santiago helped his own cause by homering to left-center field.

But Bob Gibson was masterful the rest of the way finishing with ten strikeouts allowing just six hits with one walk. Jose Santiago matched Gibson until the top of the 7th when Brock again led off with a single to right (his fourth hit), promptly stole second-base, and evenually scored on back-to-back groundouts by Flood and Maris. That run would hold up for a 2-1 Cardinal win but the Red Sox ace, Jim Lonborg was waiting in the wings to start game two.

Jim Lonborg enjoyed his best season as a professional in 1967 capturing the Cy Young Award with an A.L. best 22 wins (against 7 losses), was tops with 246 strikeouts, and had an impressive earned run average of 3.16. Lonborg continued his superb pitching starting game two for the Red Sox and for seven and two-thirds innings, the Cardinals could only manage one baserunner, a 7th inning walk by Curt Flood. After Tim McCarver and Mike Shannon led off the 8th with groundouts, Julian Javier turned a Lonborg fastball around, lining a double into the left-field corner breaking up his no-hitter. Bobby Tolan, pinch-hitting for weak-hitting Dal Maxvill, ended the inning by grounding out to second-base. Lonborg retired the side in order in the 9th ending the game as close to perfect giving up just one hit and one walk while striking out four.

Meanwhile, future hall-of-famer Carl Yastrzemski provided more than enough offense by solo-homering in the 4th and adding a 3-run shot in the 7th (scoring Jose Tartabull and Dalton Jones.) The other Red Sox run came in the 6th inning on walks to George Scott and Reggie Smith and a run-scoring sacrifice-fly by shortstop Rico Petrocelli.

After "Sleepwalking in Boston", the St Louis Cardinals came out of their hitting slumber and tagged Boston starter, Gary Bell for three runs on five hits in the first two innings of game three. A former 16-game winner for the Cleveland Indians, Bell was an early-season pickup who pitched well in 29 games for the Sox going 12-8 with an ERA of 3.16. But he didn't have his best stuff against Cardinal's starter, twenty-three year old Nelson Briles. Briles, after losing 15 games in 1966, alternated between middle-relief and starting pitching in '67, and finished with a neat 14-win, 5-loss record (.737 - best in the N.L.) and a even neater 2.43 ERA.

The great table-setter Lou Brock started things rolling in the 1st with a triple to left-center. Curt Flood followed with a single to center scoring Brock for the game's first run. In the 2nd, Tim McCarver led off with a single to center followed by a Mike Shannon two-run homerun to left. Ineffective Gary Bell was pinch-hit for in the 3rd inning, replaced by Gary Waslewski.

Boston scored their first run in the 6th with Mike Andrews, (pinch-hitting for Bell), singling to center. Andrews took second on a Tartabull sacrifice, immediately scoring on a Dalton Jones basehit to right. But the Cards added some insurance in the bottom of the frame with the disconcerting Brock bunting for a hit, eventually going to third when Stange, attempting a pick-off, threw wild into right-field. Roger Maris, in his next-to-last season, would have a good Series with 10 hits and a homerun, scored Brock with a single to right-center. Michael Jay Andrews (born July 9, 1943 in Los Angeles, California) is a former second baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Boston Red Sox (1966-70), Chicago White Sox (1971-73) and Oakland Athletics (1973). ...

In the 7th Reggie Smith would hit a lead-off homerun for Boston, trimming the score to 4-2 but the Cards stifled any further Sox comeback scoring their fifth run in the bottom of the 8th when Maris beat out a infield tap for a single and Orlando Cepeda muscled a double off the wall in right-center making the score 5-2. Briles would finish his complete-game victory with a 1-2-3 ninth, the second out recorded when Reggie Smith would interfere with McCarver who was trying to catch his pop-up foul down the first-base line.

54,000 plus smiling fans packed Busch Memorial Stadium in anticipation of yet another Bob Gibson post-season, pitching gem. Gibson, never one to disappoint, was as good as advertised. Again, all St Louis needed was a spark from Lou Brock and this time four (4), 1st inning runs crossed the plate. Brock started things rolling with a slow-roller to third - nothing Dalton Jones could do could match Brock's speed, for an infield-hit. Curt Flood singled to shallow left and Roger Maris powered-up going the other way, doubling into the left-field corner scoring both base-runners. Orlando Cepeda then hit a sac-fly, Maris advancing to third. Tim McCarver hit a clutch single to right to score Maris. After Mike Shannon fouled out to Rico Petrocelli for the second out, Julian Javier would single in the hole between short and third followed by .217 lifetime hitter Dal Maxvill's run-scoring single to left for the Cardinal's fourth run. That would be it for game one starter Jose Santiago who would only last 2/3rd's of an inning this time out.

Gibson would be on cruise-control the remainder of the game while the Cards would add two more runs off reliever Jerry Stephenson in the 3rd. Cepeda would double into the left-field corner and move to third on a wild pitch. McCarver would add a 2nd RBI on a sac-fly to center scoring Cepeda. Shannon would walk and score on a Julian Javier double just inside the third-base line.

With their backs up against the wall, manager Dick Williams would again put his trust in the dependable Jim Lonborg. The twenty-five year old righty would be faced by future hall-of-famer, Steve "Lefty" Carlton. Carlton was just twenty-two coming off his first full season in the bigs, a career that would stretch for 24 seasons. Steve was a very respectable 14-9 in thirty games with a 2.98 ERA.

The game played out very tentatively; with just one early run scored by Boston in the top of the third. After Lonborg struck-out leading off the inning, Joe Foy struck a single to left. Mike Andrews reached safely at first after a sacrifice attempt was fumbled by Cardinal third-baseman Mike Shannon. With two on and one out, Carl Yastrzemski looked at a third strike but Ken Harrelson followed with a clutch single to left scoring Foy.

Pitching with a slight cold (and a paper horseshoe in his back-pocket) Lonborg again sparkled, at one point retiring 12 straight. After a Roger Maris single in the 4th, the next batter to reach base was Julian Javier who got on base in the 8th on an error by Rico Petrocelli. Carlton was just as good but left after six innings of work, replaced by Ray Washburn who then pitched two scoreless innings. Roger Maris signs a baseball for President John F.

St Louis Manager Red Schoendienst mistakenly brought in Ron Willis to pitch the ninth. The Red Sox greeted Willis loading the bases on a George Scott walk, a Reggie Smith double, and an intentional walk to Rico Petrocelli. Jack Lamabe relieved Willis after a 1-0 count on Elston Howard who promptly popped a single to right scoring Scott. Maris threw high to the plate allowing Smith to score the second run. With the score 3-1 St Louis came to bat in the last of the 9th in a last attempt comeback bid. But Lonborg's luck continued getting Brock and Flood to ground out to second and third respectfully. Maris spoiled the shutout bid by homering over the right-field fence but Orlando Cepeda would end the game on a groundout to third.

Rico Petrocelli gave the Bostonians an early lead with a 2nd inning blast over the Green Monster in left field. St Louis came back with two runs in the top of the 3rd when Julian Javier hit a lead-off double off that same "Green Monster". After retiring the next two batters, Waslewski gave up a single to Lou Brock, scoring Javier. Then after a Brock steal, Curt Flood singled to left, scoring Brock who came home on a great slide.

Waslewski was very "workmanlike", but started to tire in the 6th inning when, after walks to Roger Maris and Tim McCarver, was replaced by John Wyatt who would get out of the jam retiring Mike Shannon on a popup to short and Petrocelli on a fly to short right. The Cards would come back and hit Wyatt hard in the 7th. After pinch-hitter Bobby Tolan walked, Lou Brock hit a homer into the right-center field bleachers.

The Red Sox would send ten batters to the plate in the bottom of the 8th inning and regain the lead. Elston Howard would lead off making both the first and last outs but four runs would cross the plate in-between. After all was said and done, the Cardinals would send four pitchers to the mound in the inning and when Hal Woodeshick would come in to pitch the 8th, a Series record would be tied with eight (8) pitchers used also setting a two team record of 11 pitchers used. St Louis had one more good chance to win the game loading the bases in the 8th, but highlighted by a great "Yaz" catch in left-center, the Cards couldn't push one across and wouldn't score again going quietly in the ninth; Gary Bell pitching the last two innings for the save.

"The seventh game again matched the aces, Bob Gibson against Jim Lonborg. Although he had popular sentiment behind him, Lonborg was pitching tired on two-days rest, while Gibby had rested an extra day since his last outing. From the start, it was apparent that Lonborg was struggling. Three Cardinal hits and a wild pitch put St Louis ahead 2-0 in the 3rd inning. Two more scored in the 5th on a homerun by Gibson, Lou Brock's single and two stolen bases (his 7th steal - a new Series record), and a Roger Maris sacrifice-fly to right. A Boston run in the 5th cut the score to 4-1, but the Red Sox dream was abruptly halted in the 6th on a three-run homer by Julian Javier off the arm-weary Lonborg. With the 7-2 defeat, the "Impossible Dream" ended one game too early, thanks mostly to Brock, who hit .414 and stole a record seven (7) bases, and the great Bob Gibson, who won three outstanding games!"

The Series

Pitching dominated this World Series, with Bob Gibson leading the Cardinals. Lonborg pitched the decisive final game of the regular season, so he was unable to start Game 1. Gibson cemented his reputation as an unhittable postseason pitcher in this series, allowing only three total runs over three complete games. His efforts allowed the Cardinals to triumph despite the batting of Yastrzemski (.500 OBP, .840 SLG), and pitching of Lonborg, who allowed only one run in each of his complete-game wins in Games 2 and 5.

The decisive Game 7 featured Gibson and Lonborg facing each other for the first time in the series, but Lonborg was starting on only two days' rest, and was unable to compete with Gibson, who only allowed three hits over the course of a complete game. The final score was 7-2, in favor of the Cardinals.
