Three complete games in a month?! A lot has changed since 1989.

If only Mauch had thought about going to Fin to start the 11th inning in game 5 of the 1986 ALCS, instead of a tiring Moore.

Can't believe I let this thread lapse. Sorry, Chuck.

April 28, 2002. This wonderful thing happened. Was anyone here at that game?

 

Still one of the coolest franchise moments, by far. 

May not be historic, as far as the history of the game, but seeing an underdog guy like Eck do that, 2 days in a row, was f*cking cool

I've been doing these on our @AngelsWin twitter account on Gameday's. I'll be sure to post them here if you haven't already @fan_since79.

If I recall correctly, that grand slam happened in the 14th inning. That game was part of the 21-3 stretch we went on to recover from the 6-14 start.

Yep

 

And the fact it was 2 days in a row....

 

How cool was Eck? Met him a few times... nicest guy on earth.... you can try to explain to him a million times why he was so liked here and in St Lou, and hed get embarrassed, and point out why other guys are the reason he had rings

I remember him sprinting to 1B after a walk....

Google the story about him and Bonds in Japan... Bonds LOVED him....

....Chance started the year in relief.   His moving into the rotation had to be one of the main reasons for the big rally.

If Chance can do it, so can Chris Rodriquez..
