Game 5 – 1978 Tournament Replay Red Sox vs Mets

Must win Game 5 for the Mets as they send Jerry Koosman (3-15 3.75 Grade 8) to the mound. Red Sox send Dennis Eckersley (20-8 2.99 Grade 14).

Could this game hold up to the classic game 1 from these two teams and pitchers. Almost….

The Mets would get a run in the second as an error by Carl Yastrzemski allows John Stearns to score. This would be the only run scored in the game as Koosman goes the distance allowing only 4 hits. Mets win 1-0 and still trail the series 3-2.

Final Score: Mets 1, Red Sox 0

WP: Jerry Koosman (2-1)

LP: Dennis Eckersley (0-1)

HR’s: None
